If you want an experience that is different from routine, this is the place. The resort is a good two hour drive from Dambolim Airport, Goa. ( Tip: It is better to book your transport while booking the resort ) Your adventutre begins the moment you get off the Taxi. An open Trolly on rails transports you and your luggage up the steep mountain. You enjoy the view of the verdant valley and twin waterfalls as you go up the mountain. Check in is a breeze and you are escorted to your room. The room is utilaritaian, don't expect too much but it is adequate. ( Tip:Book a Valley view cottage instead of a Forest view cottage} The charm of the resort lies outdoors, in the paths cobbled with laterite stones, in the bird calls, the butterflies, snails, and sundry wildlife. I was taken on a nightwalk by Vitthal, one of the resident naturalists, and encountered the elusive Malabar gliding frog, salamanders, bio-luminiscaent fungi and three different kinds of snakes. The trek to waterfall through thick forest is a huge plus and lot of fun. There is another trek to the mountain top ( called Sunset point ) We were also taken on a courtsey visit to Swapnagandha, the twin resort of wildernest, situated a little distance away. The resturant, the outdoor bar, infinity swimming pool all add to the charm of this resort. The staff is polite, the food reasonably good. Another plus is absence of TV and Internet. Even the mobile connectivity is intermittent.( Jio fares better than other networks) Yes, there is Wifi in reception area which enables you to do your web check in for return trip. We were there for three days at the peak of the monsoons and loved every minute of our stay. Caution: This is no place for old and the infirm.

It is an awesome resort which I recommend to stay. It is located at 80 kms from North Goa amongst wildlife forest. The whole property will give you the feel of perfect jungle stay. Valley view rooms are the best. Infinity swimming pool is awesome. Bar is Ok. Activities are really hardy especially the jungle trekking . It is an moderate level trekking guide by there expert staff. water falls spot is mind blowing , you can spend hours there. Be careful about leeches sometimes ( during monsoon ) . Food is really wonderful and the staff is just superb. You can enjoy Folk dance at night or a short documentary film on wildlife . If you are interested in pottery classes there is a space for you. Mehendi for ladies is also there. Take my word your boss can't reach you as there is NO internet or wifi. Jio works sometime . You can give more time to your family as it doesn't have TV too. Stay there for minimum 2 days for the feel or may be more if you love nature. Pick up from Goa they arrange at an extra cost , but I feel that is worth, if you dont want to drive. Lights at night inside the rooms are not sufficient for book reading so keep them aside. You may encounter reptiles but they wont harm you . atleast the cobra I encountered didn't harmed me at all. Infinity swimming pool with a glass of beer can be a awesome relaxation. One has to be punctual about the time . . I recommend the stay , I was in Savari ( 26.09.2020 - 28.09.2020 )

This place was selected by self as I am a nature lover and I heard a lot about the resort nature set up and so I had from over a year wanted to visit it. Pros. The team is amazing. The food is very good and local freshly made. All the team members are very friendly and amazing. If at all I go back in non monsoon season I would go back only because of Namdev(senior), Sushma and Rajeshwari if I am correct on reservations as we had troubles and she was very patient. The nature walks are amazing surely. We sited viper snake and more. The trekking to waterfalls was amazing with namdev. It was very good. However we had sleepless night due to following reasons. Cons: However specially during monsoons I would not recommend for persons who don’t like too much creepiness of the nature. The furniture is basic. There are no bath room amenities. Due to monsoon it’s extremely musty in rooms and bed sheets. The cleanliness of bathrooms and otherwise is not upto the mark socially during Covid times. We even had a mouse in the room at night after which it was put off and I can’t rate all 5 stars due to that. I Usually don’t like to rate low as I am a hotelier myself. But cleanliness can not be compromised pls. I hope the management looks into this and improves HK. Also this place is not recommended for senior citizens at all unless they are very fit. This is something which should have been informed in advance. Alone with us there was another family who had a tough time as the place has not plain walkways. It’s rocks and stones and the walk to restaurant from rooms is a challenge. The forest rooms have stairs. Overall if I may go back it would be in winters and only due to the staff there. They created memories for us.

Set high in the forested mountains of northern Goa, Wildernest is advertised as a Nature Reserve (and an 'Eco Camp' "....in an unspoiled area that lets visitors explore the ‘other side’ of Goa – away from its famous beaches." A two-hour drive – an experience in itself through India’s traffic – the area certainly is a contrast to the better-known beach areas. There are 18 cabins/huts in all – some for couples, some for families. All are very basic in both furniture and provisions and widely scattered across a hillside area that surrounds the ‘centre’ of pool, restaurant, bar. The cabins are either ‘Valley View’ or ‘Forest View’ – the Valley View huts have a great view out over the valley and the sunsets. We, very disappointingly, had been allocated a ‘Forest View’ which, actually, has no view at all, surrounded, as it was on all sides, by ‘jungle’. All huts, being built into the steep hillside, have steep, stepped approaches. The pool is ‘infinity’ with a great view out over a huge valley and the oft-spectacular sunsets. All guests are automatically on a ‘full board’ basis - breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, occasional barbeque and dinner. The food, obviously, mainly consists of Indian/curry dishes, but always with a couple of other offers for any less adventurous westerners. Sadly the dishes are not kept temperature-hot enough, so anybody not there at the beginning of a meal time is faced with luke-warm (at best) food As a 'Nature Reserve' and an 'activity-based centre' there are a number of things to keep visitors occupied – early morning bird-watching walks; longer hikes to a nearby waterfall and swimming pond; ‘sunset’ treks to a local hillside at dusk; pottery and henna experiences and evening wild-life documentaries. But the timetable is the same every day and there is very little in the way of wild-life, apart from a small number of birds and a tea-time visit from a local monkey family. We saw no wildlife on any of the walks and hikes that we took. After a couple of days, I started to wonder exactly what ‘eco’ means. Certainly all the infrastructure (such as it is – paths, steps, activity areas) has used local lava-like stone, the restaurant balcony is made from recycled railway sleepers and the huts, it is claimed, are made from local wood but the electricity is all supplied by the national grid – there are no obvious solar panels or other ‘eco’ devices and the water is taken from a local reservoir. The swimming pool water is unheated, but claims to be recycled (and hopefully filtered); the paths to all the huts are lit throughout the night, as are the public areas and the huts themselves; the public buildings are cleaned with vacuums rather than being swept or washed – all big users of electricity! And there are the ‘little things’ that don’t seem to ‘fit’ the word ‘eco’ – the cheese at breakfast is Kraft cheese slices (individually wrapped in plastic) the bars of soap are individually wrapped in a plastic cover. At reception, where we stop to pay our bill as we leave, we are asked if we would like to leave a donation for “The Project”. When asked what, exactly, is ‘The Project’ – nobody seems to know and attention is suddenly focused elsewhere and we are ignored. I am still in the dark about both “Eco” and “The Project”. It would be unfair to say that, after our three days at the camp, there was a link between 'nature-and-eco’ and ‘cheap-and-low standard’ but the thought did cross my mind Not a place for a week’s holiday – three days was way too much for me.
