THE FEEL OF LIVING INSIDE A FOREST VILLAGE.
This is recreated here by infusing forest plants alongside native existing trees . Trees come first; hence they are not chopped to make place for houses, rather houses are designed in available open spaces. Ambience is rustic and rural i.e. sounds, textures, visuals, terrain and smells.
PERENNIAL FRESH WATER SPRINGS.
A Blessing of nature, a heart that beats 24/7 x 365 days Spring Waters, is what Sustains Hidden Village. The water hole that gets its feed from subterranean stream is fit for swimming or just relaxing during summer breaks and home to aquatic life like crabs frogs fishes which is a fine blend to the ecosystem of the forest.
FREE FISH PEDICURE
Although the pond was designed for swimming, it is home to thousands of fishes now which keep multiplying, which provides the crazy fish pedicure to those who love to indulge in it. It’s the same fish used in Malls trending as Fish Pedicure, but is endemic here.
July to December, monsoon waters rush through the village downwards from the upper terrain of mountains and lake behind, higher in elevation from us. The pathway of this water provides for a seasonal waterfall, under which children and adults frolic alike enjoying the near hydrotherapy like massage. Although seasonal it adds to the aesthetic nature of the village, where some relax enjoying the continuous waterfall sounds.
The landscape of Hidden Village is unspoilt, untouched by excavator machines, a handy work of nature and human. The forest floor is not flat, but majorly uneven. The waterway that moves down has taken shape into natural nullahs and there are crossovers at various junctions where wooden bridges are constructed. The design of the bridges blends excellently well with the forest back drop and the water beneath, especially in the rains.
Hidden Village is a perfect set up for romantic getaway for couples. The village ensures privacy of our esteemed guests as we ensure every bit to make the stay enjoyable and memorable. The set-up of the rooms is such; the veranda or its private sit out is not visible from common sight of fellow guests and the staff. All staff are local villagers who are simple yet passionate about the property and work hard to see it sustain and grow over the years. No migrant workers.
At hidden Village it’s not only you but your pets too can have a lovely time amidst nature. The village has its own space dedicated for the resident animals that often roam around freely, unchallenged by the staff or the visitors, the turkeys are a bit spoilt brats who like to throw weight scaring newcomers. Animals like Rabbits, Guinea pigs, Budgerigars, Cockatoos are fenced and caged. Roosters, Guinea fowls, Geese, Turkeys & Ducks move around freely while goats go out to graze. Some adults, but children especially enjoy the presence of these in the village that adds up to their excitement. Kids love to chase, pat or even hold these which is so enthralling to their young minds. We don’t have any policy of objecting any pets accompanying our guests, unless it does not create trouble for other guests nor does any harm to the property.
Unlike the long drives to tourist destinations in Karjat, Palghar, Nasik or Satara Hidden Village is just one hour drive from Thane, on the Mumbai Nasik highway. It is also accessible by local train. Convenient for those living in central railway side up to CST terminal, (option to travel without your car) deboard at Atgaon Station from the CST Kasara local train, there are rickshaws that take you 2 kms away to our spot, with a fixed charge.
HIGHLY OXYGENATED ATMOSPHERE
Hidden village is all about a natural getaway, a breath of fresh air among the greenery of a forested landscape. The lush green forests and the serenity of the atmosphere not only act as a natural purifier, you can breathe lung full of fresh oxygen which is slowly getting scarce in our polluted cities. The trees acts as natural coolers and summers are more pleasant at the village, as one can actually feel the temperature drop a few degrees on entering the village then. The property is a perfect go to destination for all seasons.
FRESHEST SWIMMING POOL WATER
The village has its own natural fresh water pond that doubles up as a swimming pool. As we have a spring inside the swimming pool, which is trapped into a well, which keeps filling up the village pool continuously. So about 9000 to 14000 liters fresh water is infused every day into the pond which overflows at the other end, this phenomenon continues round the year.
Ideal for pre-wedding shoots, products, costumes, textiles shoots, which often happen here.
