Dudhsagar Plantation and Farmstay has us convinced that we should totally take an early retirement & head here
With millennials thronging Goa like it’s the newest Instagrammy cafe, the city has become synonymous to a throbbing party culture coupled with loud music, bottomless spirits and sea-food.
But for those explorers fuelled with wanderlust, who don’t want to squander away their dough in a generic Goan experience- here’s a piece of Goa you should be exploring instead.
Dudhsagar Plantation and Farmstay here amidst a verdant tropical palm-garden and spice plantation gives you access to the rhythms of rural Goa, like no other! With plenty of excursions and activities here to keep you on our toes, you can never be bored here.
Dudhsagar Farmstay is replete with rich flora and fauna and with Dudhsagar, Surla and Saveri waterfalls a jeep drive away, you can never have enough of this spot. They even have a natural pool where you can unwind at and natural trails for you to explore and BTW, this locale is a birdwatcher’s paradise!
The bedrooms and the washrooms are strikingly humble with no shosha unlike the other fancy stay-spots so when here, it’s going to be all about your inner peace! Their washrooms have a semi-open-air system and attending a call of nature, cannot get any more literal than this.
The food is prepared and served home-style and if you’re thinking of what to hog on, they have plenty of options for you to choose from, for all our palate preferences. Dudhsagar Farmstay even offers a complimentary tour of the plantation and you can watch the ongoing agricultural activities taking place and also pluck fruits of the season, while at it.
They have their basics done right and truly, it is (was, maybe?) one Goa's best-kept secrets.
Since this farm stay is becoming increasingly popular with the crowds, you should get a reservation done here, well-before planning other parts of your trip. Come over with bae or a handful of friends and relish a calming experience. This is a sort of therapy session, we all should be a part of at least once in our lifetime!
A little bit on the expensive side, Dudhsagar Plantation and Farmstay is worth every coin of yours.
