Truly off the beaten track with incredible views of surrounding hills and forest, Wildernest Nature Resort is in a fantastic location on the border of Karnataka, Maharashtra and Goa. If you’re looking to stay in a tranquil, scenic environment with a sense of adventure, opportunities to see local wildlife and go on day treks, this really is the place for you.
Sitting amongst lush forest at 800 metres above sea level, you’ll find it is cooler than the rest of steamy Goa. A great team of dedicated naturalists are on hand to show you the surrounding area including rainforests, breathtaking waterfalls and an abundance of birdlife. Traditional dishes are served in the evenings, along with a side of folk dancing and singing as entertainment on occasion. Enjoy a drink at the wooden hut-style bar or by the incredible infinity pool with views out to the mountains and waterfalls beyond.
Built from eco-friendly acacia wood with large windows to allow you to feel fully surrounded by nature, the cottages have a rustic beauty. They are spread out for extra privacy and have a cosy, simple feel; you’ll be living in the wild with all the comforts. We recommend opting for the valley view rooms for beautiful views.
There is limited mobile signal, making it ideal for those wanting a bit of relaxation and digital detox - it is not for those wanting luxury! Note that despite the property being in Goa, it is not a beach property in any way; the nearest beach is at least two hours away. We feel it is a great option for nature lovers wanting to connect Karnataka with Goa and its beautiful beaches and interior.
Eco/Adventure - This category covers gorgeous lodges in the jungle, comfortable safari camps and dreamy, but simple, beach cabanas. These places defy conventional categorisation: what is communing with nature to one person may be terrifying bugs to another! Many of these places are very comfortable and the service generally of a very high level - but please read the website review carefully and/or talk to us and be sure to have understood what you are letting yourselves in for!
