paths once cleared by the British in the forests of Matheran, making it
the last British hill station have acquired a new identity as the place
where Bombay’s movers and shakers which include filmstars and
businessmen come to spend a few quiet and peaceful days.
Perched atop the Sahyadri ranges, Matheran
is Asia’s only pedestrian hill resort. Chug up in a toy train, trot, or
arrive in a palanquin, past gigantic mansions built by the British, the
Parsis, and the Bohras.
The Verandah in the Forest was the
second house to be built on the isolated Western Ghats, by Captain Barr.
Now, with every facility in place, it is reputed to be second to none!
Indeed, the nobility of the proportions of The Verandah bring
civilizational honour to the Sahyadri ranges.
Lounge like never before in this
verandah of your dreams. Read under the highest domestic ceiling you
would have known in the salon – 12 metres/35 feet high. Stroll down to
Charlotte Lake. Or take longer walks with a picnic basket. Relish the
local cuisines. Heave your chest, muscle your calves, take all the
oxygen back in your lungs. Link your planet with your own two feet.

Forest has 12 rooms. Should you want
two or more adjacent rooms, please make a request while booking.
