Kelva Beach Resort-kelva beach

Away from the noisy city, surrounded by spaced out thick forests is the long unexplored beach of Kelva. The Kelva Beach Resort, situated amidst the fresh lotus lakes, long beaches and ancient fortress, offers superb mystical view. Through the spiralling ranges of Sahyadri Mountains, the place is a 2 hour drive from the Mumbai city.

A paradise, offering a getaway from the daily hectic schedules, the place is wrapped in greenery, soothing the mind and body. The seaside atmosphere offers a complete solace, with a touch of laziness and a truly soul stirring experience.

Rest with Nature

Surrounded by thick tree foliages of mango, coconut, chickoo, casuarinas and palm trees, the resort has a cool and tranquil touch. The idea behind exclusively  designed coco-hut cottages made out of local materials like treated bamboo-wood and dried palm leaves is to keep the construction in harmony with nature. The deluxe cottages that come with attached bathrooms are a favourite. The green canvas tents are another good option.


Being a coastal region, sea food like fish and crabs are the speciality. Exclusively prepared from local recipes and spices, these mouth-watering dishes will make you ask for more. For the hard core Mumbai people, the special recipes of rajma and dal, spicy chicken gravies, fried fish and exceptional red gravies makes the cut.

As for the vegetarians, do not be disappointed. The vegetarian food of Kelva with a dash of spicy coastal tinge will give any non-vegetarian food a run for it’s money. You can even ask for specially available Maharashtrian food, special local vegetable gravies and fresh salads.

For the calorie conscious customers, there is a special Spaghetti and Pasta menu. These are made with locally available seasoning.

If you are in the mood of a party, the special Barbeque menu is definitely worth trying. Though, it is prepared only through prior request.

Appetite for Adventure

Ever had a horse-buggy ride on the beach? Well, give it a try here. No screeching kids, no beach garbage and no hawkers. Simple and pure excitement. Explore the jungle paths with bicycles, usually provided by the resorts and discover Kelva at your own pace.

For those who do not wish to miss out on their workouts, sweat it out on the in-house badminton court. The resort also has a portable table-tennis equipment. Other facilities include  games like beach volleyball.
