We finally reached well in time for check in at 9am, More relieved to see a full fledged UDIPI restaurant in MTDC complex serving piping hot tea, idlis, dosai...
Hotel rooms were amazingly clean and spacious and more spacious was location overlooking famous beach. WOW !! what a prime location to have a hotel !!! We were off to the beach in no time with sissy in laws & sisters & kiddos getting more energy out of nowhere.
Ganapatipule temple which is just few yards away was good and more interesting was history associated with century old temple.
Next day morning I was up early with some other family members and decided for long walk on beach only to find hidden lake close to the sea... what a sight with sunrise adding glamour to amazing place !!!
We hired mini bus and were off to Ratnagiri to see some other attractions like markets, Tilak museum, Thebaw palace which was one amazing teak wood palace of last king of Burma !!!! He reached all the way here to make a Palace..could not resist the thought how did he reach her btw !!! walking, horse ride, elephant ride, Palkhi ride all the way from Burma.... wow !!!
Quick lunch and we were off to PAVAS, holy ashram was welcoming with shades of trees. Shops selling locally manufactured products and also mango delicacy is must buy outside the ashram.
Next destination - I will take you again in Andaman Sea to see paradise in sea - Phuket.
Till then Hasta la Vista
