As my grandfather said, 'Excellent hospitality!'; in other words, as another review suggested, this is certainly a "Haven for Peace and Comfort!" - Located on the outskirts of Karjat, Tooth Mountains Farms is a boutique resort that exudes earthiness, warmth and serenity. Overlooking the fortress of Irshalgad, which is shaped like a tooth at the peak of the mountain, this place derives its dear name, i.e. Tooth Mountain Farms.
After having travelled across multiple destinations in various countries, what still makes this place exceptionally unique are the PEOPLE running it. The hospitality and professionalism that my family of 5 received, was unparalleled. The calming environment and natural beauty is indeed nurtured by the hospitality of the staff. From the very beginning, Subhan (our receptionist) gave myself, my parents and grandparents a warm welcome. He and his team made us feel at 'Home' every since we stepped into the earthy soil of this beautiful farmstay. Subhan and the seasoned Maharaj, Manoj ji catered to our different tastes across 3 different generations, in an exquisite and exceptional manner. They took care of the smallest of details across all 3 meals of the day, especially for my grandparents, who were extremely satisfied with the service and the food. As staunch Jains, we had more food limitations but never felt limited by the options that Manoj-ji prepared for us. In a nutshell, we all had a delectable feast throughout our stay - thanks to Manoj-ji's experience, attention to detail and of course, 'haath ka jaadu'. Sagar was another delight; he was essentially our tour guide and always maintained a positive, friendly and helpful disposition. One such particular instance was when Sagar took my mom and I to explore the adjacent Art Village - he shared facts, information and engaged us both in a pleasant conversation about the village, showed us the nearby farm and presented us to the wonderful horses adored by the village, namely Kanak Baadal and Whatsapp. He was genuinely enthusiastic and always carried a smile on his face! Amongst others, Ajit - another helper - was also very accommodating.
Our family resided in Ashmantak and Amaltas, two rooms located in the Out-House next to the swimming pool area. While they are smaller than the largest rooms located in the Main Villa, they were extremely picturesque, vibrant and airy rooms (with plants and natural sunlight), each comfortable for a party of 2-3 people. The Main Villa is home to the common/play area and the bigger rooms. We took a sneak-peak at these rooms in the Main Villa and found our Out-house rooms to be more spacious and homey; also less noisy since these rooms are separate from the common area.
The only suggestions I can offer are for the elderly - my grandparents had a slightly difficult time walking from the rooms to the restaurant because of the uneven and unfinished walking path. While it adds to the natural rawness of the setting, the stones/pebbles and grass could get uncomfortable for older people. I would suggest creating a flat path that is easy on the legs for not just elderly, but perhaps disabled people as well. Another small thing was regarding the shower tap in the Ashmantak room: the tap (or 'nal') was slightly tight and difficult for my grandparents to operate. The solution could be as simple as oiling it or installing something more user-friendly.
All-in-all, this stay definitely surpassed my expectations. I just came from America, and was humbled and touched by the 5-star service and amenities that this wonderful stay had to offer. It was a home away from home. Rest assured, I will be back. I hope, and know, that this place will grow from strength-to-strength and continue to bloom, just like the lovely flowering trees grown at the farms. As we approach a new decade and a new year, I must say thank you and wish Tooth Mountain Farms continued success! No matter what height of success you achieve, please continue to stay firmly rooted to your soil, your earthiness, because that's where the charm lies. Cheers!
