the space

This farm stay is an excellent example of regional Malvan culture and unique coastal Konkani traditions. Take the concept of slow and rejuvenating travel to a whole new level by staying at The Betelnut Plantation. Located in a remote part of the Konkan belt, a place still unknown to most locals, the property is a private haven for those who want to enjoy staying amidst a plantation amongst numerous trees! Experience living in perfect micro temperate climatic conditions and a tropical feel thus offering an abundant, pollution-free and rich environment for nature lovers. Safe to say that the weather is always pleasant here.

comforts

The farmstay has 6 rooms designed using local materials that reflect traditional Malvan architectural styles. Attention to detail is something that this farmstay can be credited for, from placing betel leaves as coasters under the copper glasses and water jug to serving food in authentic wooden dishes with coconut shells spoons. All rooms come with modern attached baths and can accommodate an extra bed each. The rooms are extremely private and tastefully maintained. The property is functional all year.

food

Many of our guests come to the property just for the food. The hosts offer delectable forgotten traditional recipes of Saraswat cuisine. The ingredients, methods, fresh spices from the garden, the understanding of the science of storage, and the chemistry of fire and earthen pots are altogether an experience for guests who are invited to participate in the cooking process. The menu is designed keeping in mind its ethnicity, medicinal value, nutritional value, and natural diet. In the common dining area called ‘Pavhner’, food is served on leaf plates and earthen pots. Both vegetarian and non-vegetarian food is served with the best combinations considering the availability of the same. All the vegetables served are organic and grown in the village itself. All meals are prepared by the coming together of the village women on a chulla (mud-stove) using wood fire, imparting a distinct flavour profile to the food.

ideal for

The property is ideal for families, couples, groups and people who want to experience living on a plantation and explore authentic Konkani culture and village life.
