We arrived on a lazy Sunday afternoon just in time for the Grape Stomping and the Wine Tasting Festival. During the check-in, we were happy to see the COVID safety protocols being followed at The Resort. They had sticks one could use to operate the elevator, all the staff members wore masks and they had sanitizer stations located in different places. Definitely makes a safe weekend destination from Mumbai during COVID.
After visiting our rooms briefly, we went to the poolside to enjoy the lovely spread, live music and relaxing ambience. Here are a few glimpses:

We stayed in a Club Room which was very comfortable and had a spectacular view of the sun setting over the sea. The room was elegant and had a nice sitting area so we could enjoy the view together. The Club Room came with complimentary breakfast which was delicious.
Food at The Resort
Food at The Resort was irresistible with an array of delectables to choose from. During the Grape Stomping and Wine Tasting fest afternoon, we were shown to the themed cooking area which had separate sections for Indian, Chinese and International cuisine. Among those which I loved were the Indian street food section which included Kathi rolls, chaat and kababs. The array of cheeses and the mezze platter paired beautifully with the wines. The attendants and chefs at every section were a talented, entertaining and a friendly group who loved to interact with guests. The staff was very helpful, the food was yum and the entire place was a visual feast!
Dinner was a light affair with fresh salads that included vegetarian and non-vegetarian options to choose from. They also have other dishes for those who had an appetite for it. They have a cozy bar, too. Breakfast the next morning included live stations serving pancakes and waffles (my favourite) and also many other options.
The resort hosts Theme Food festivals on a regular with the current one being hosted around Koli food, the traditional fisherfolk of Coastal Maharashtra. The Koli Food Festival is live every weekend this February. It offers a lovely meal with a festive atmosphere that is definitely something for you to look forward to. So keep yourself updated regular basis and remember to enjoy their food festivals.
