...............................................................................Two-Day Revelry

The Two-Day Revelry : Only the privileged in Mumbai have a weekend to talk about. Their weekend begins on Friday evening and ends late Sunday night. With this kind of time in hand, it is possible to scout places outside the city of Mumbai for a tranquil weekend. Most people head for Lonavala, Khandala, Matheran, Mahabaleshwar and Alibaug. For a quieter weekend, where you can lie on the hammock with a lazy bee buzzing near your ear and the gentle sounds of water lulling you to sleep, I strongly recommend Ganapatipule.    


The Beach And You

GanapatipuleIt sounds suspiciously religious for a holiday resort, but you will be pleasantly surprised when you get there. The name Ganapatipule originated from the famous 400 year old temple of the Swayamboo Ganesh (natural idol, not sculpted by human hands), which gave the place a religious flavour.

Ganapatipule is a small, relatively untouched town in the Ratnagiri District of Maharashtra, with virgin beaches and without the usual commercial touch. If you are looking for going on a shopping spree, this is not the place for you – unless you are looking for mangoes.

This is just the place to relax, relax and relax. Feel the clean sands beneath your feet and get smitten by the sea.

Best place to stay:

Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC) resort, which has luxury suites or dormitories. Phone: 202 6713/ 4627

If you are not allergic to mosquitoes, we would recommend the MTDC tents under the whispering willows and the starry skies. It is advisable to carry a mosquito repellant.

These tents have beds, fans, cupboards, a nightstand, common toilets and bathrooms. They cost Rs 100 per day.
