We were three senior citizen couples who wanted to spend two days under the rains and in cold weather, and do nothing. Dala Mare was the perfect setting for us in Panchgani. The staff was extremely friendly and co-operative, great cooks for variety of dishes and all meals. The stay was very comfortable with lovely internal & external settings and arrangements.
We had what we wanted.

We were a group of 17 college friends and had booked Dala Mare for a one night stay. The group was large enough to book the entire bunglow. The cleanliness of the property, well maintained rooms and very hospitable care takers of the property ensured that we had a fabulous stay. We ate all the three meals - breakfast, lunch and dinner at the property. The kitchen hygiene was impressive and the food was excellent. For dinner, we opted for a bar-be-que. The ambience of the property, the hygiene and the hospitality made our short trip a memorable one !

We a family of 18 members stayed at Dale Mare Resort from 19th May to 21st May.
It's a very clean and a beautiful place to stay with a fantastic view of mountains and greenery.
The Care Takers were very polite and gave the best of service.The breakfast, Lunch and Dinner served was mouth watering.
We will definetely try to visit again and recommend this lovely Resort to our friends.
After visiting in Dala Rooster, I moved to stay at Dala Mare.
The entire look of Dala Mare is completely non-Indian.
A Very unique design indeed.
The entrance of Dala Mare
The entrance got a very unique structure that attracts the traveller’s mind.
The traveller can see a huge A character type structure.
Under that structure, I found Benz car parked.
I saw 2 unique balconies and both the balconies had a unique architecture.
The entire Dala Mare bungalow was surrounded by lavish greenery & fog (that normally can be seen in rainy season).
The temperature was pleasant & awesome.
Seeing Dala Mare external features & attributes! I informed Captain Gokhale that this is the ultimate & the best place for writers, creative minds, artists, performers & think tank.
The Living Room or Hall of Dala Mare
The living room or hall of Dala Mare is very uniquely designed.
While watching the architecture, I realized (found & observed) Dala Mare got no pillars and no slab.
I also found a very unique nature of wall structure in the hall and very inspiring paint on it.
I haven’t seen such construction and painting so far.
Design of living room and the kitchen is very unique.
Like Dala Rooster, Dala Mare got 6 bedrooms.
All are located on the same floor or platform.
All bedrooms are attached to toilet cum bathroom.
Each bedroom and each toilet cum bathroom is very neatly designed and each one was neat, clean & hygienic.
Each bedroom got a balcony.
Each balcony got enough place to sit early in the morning or early in evening or late night too.
Enough or enough space front side and backside of Dala Mare.
Dala Mare’s kitchen is well equipped like Dala Rooster.
Local care staff is well trained and they cook inspiring and tasty food.
Later I came to know that Dala Mare is listed with MTDC (Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation) under Mahabhraman category.
This is a unique category of MTDC wherein ethnic Maharashtrian food is cooked and served to every traveller.
Here again, local staff used homemade spices to cook the food and the taste of the food is authentic, unique and ethnic too.
Dala Mare is the most awesome and the most perfect homestay place for all designers, all design thinkers, all new product development creators, engineers, book writers, book readers, poetry writers, poetry readers, film scriptwriters, drama scriptwriters, artist, etc.
The amount of energy and the charge that I got over here is beyond my imagination & beyond my expectations.
