Beautiful and clean rooms. Friendly staff. Location is so good that you can just walk over like 1-1.5 kms and reach some really scenic village spots around it. The owner is a professional wildlife/nature photographer whose work you can see in the main reception area. Lots of books about the regions and India also placed there if you are interested...

I have been to other properties in Amboli, and this by far the best place to stay in Amboli. A quaint little place run by a very passionate naturalist and photographer who also happens to be a great host. The rooms are large and spacious and the bathroom is pretty clean.

The beauty and biodiversity of Amboli’s natural wonders are very well-known and when you unexpectedly come across a property that is immaculately clean with modern interiors and amenities, you know you have found a comfortable 'home' as your base while you head out to enjoy the wonders of this increasingly popular hill station. I was here on a research trip...
