“A must visit to relax and rejuvenate and learn our roots.

        “It was a long cherished holiday for us after the pandemic and I must say Hemant Ogale’s Whistling Woods was a perfect choice we made. The room and the toilet were spic and span with intercom, electric kettle and 24 hours hot water supply. Part of our room and the toilet had glass roof and there was a small area of plantation in one corner of the room which gives you a feeling of staying in the nature. The lush green plantation of the campus, the flowers, butterflies,the petrichor the pitter-platter of raindrops on the glass roof chirping of birds and crickets, quacking of frogs all gave us a healing touch to our pandemic scarred mind and soul.
All the staffs are extremely polite helpful and efficient. Sakharam gets special appreciation from us.
All vacation are, as important to us as its local cuisine and I must say the food of Whistling Woods was real gastronomic delight for us. We tried all Marathi and Konkani dishes.Each and everyone was mouth watering, specially Sabudana Khichri.
Now about Hemant Ogale, the father of Whistling Woods. An extremely polite,gentle,ever smiling fellow who is always ready to run an extra mile for his guests. He is a renowned butterfly expert.” – Debasis Chaudhari

Whistling Woods – Hidden gem

Amboli was a break journey on my way to Goa. We booked directly with the owner. We reached the property after a long journey and the porperty was beyond our expectation. The wooden cottages are nestled between beautiful greenery and blooming flowers. There are a very few cottages and this is the best part as it has not been commercialized. Each individual cottage is beautifully designed to blend in with the surroundings. The hammocks are a treat. The key here is simplicity. The staff was simple folks always ready with prompt service. The owner is an avid photographer and we were mesmerized by the collection of his photographs of rare beautiful butterflies. They made you feel at home every step of the way. This is now in my list of must visit places for this monsoon. If you want to feel refreshed and rejuvenated in a green surroundings and serene environment this is the place for you P. Bhattacharya
