Accommodation at Gulmohar Homestay Nashik


Accommodation at Gulmohar Homestay Nashik is really very comfortable. All the knick-knacks and furniture are placed in a way that does not scream of clutter or over the top kitsch. It is, to put it simply, tasteful d├ęcor and charming. 
An amazing thing is that, despite the hot month of April, within the house, we never felt the heat at all. No, there is no air-conditioning. The outer room beyond the bedroom has some type of matting on the underside of the roof (see the image below) which is what retains the coolness and the roof of the bedroom is very high as well. There is an air-cooler in the room, though, if you do require it.

Gulmohar Homestay - overeview with accommodation rates and contact info

A charming home, unpolluted air in the midst of greenery, good food - what more do you
need on a vacation at a homestay?! The figurine in the first image below aptly sums up our stay at Gulmohar Homestay, Nashik. It fulfilled our expectations of having a relaxed weekend, doing absolutely nothing and thoroughly enjoying it! 
A plus point was having homemade food cooked exactly to the T as per our request. The place was homely, with lovely decor and furnishings in the main house and in our rooms as well, located in the midst of nature. All in all, we had a nice time with caring, friendly hosts Kamala and Vinod Parekh.

A charming walk through Dr Zakir Hussain Rose Garden Chandigarh

Love open air and plenty of greenery filled with the fragrant scents of flora? The place to be is the Dr Zakir Hussain Rose Garden in the city of Chandigarh, Punjab. Mind you, you need to set aside a lot of hours to spend here, another option being to split the visit on two days. Most important is not to visit at that time of the year when you are unlikely to see the flowering blooms!

The accommodation at the Dhathri Ayurkendra & Panchakarma Centre's resort located at Kayamkulam Kerala is extremely spacious and comfortable. More than that, the views are so stunning that you would hate to stay in your room in the first place!

Dhathri Ayurkendra & Panchakarma Centre Kayamkulam Kerala review


Dhathri Ayurkendra & Panchakarma Centre, located at Kayamkulam, Kerala, is a great place for those looking for not just a quiet vacation, but also to get expert treatment for the everyday ills that plague our contemporary lives. 

At their resort, just let go - simply relax and do nothing other than feast on the yummiest food you've ever had, get pummeled (gently of course!) with expert massages and give yourself up totally to the Ayurved treatment customized for you as per your ailments. 

This is a first-hand review based on the details given by my cousin and her husband who stayed for 10 days at their resort.
