Set in a forest habitat on the shoulder of the highest point of the Mahabaleshwar-Panchgani plateau, with bewildering biodiversity, Spandan beckons young visitors to stop awhile, gently drinking in ecological living, in the heart of a 500-acre forest.

Situated at approximately 1,400 m above sea-level, about one kilometer away from the State Highway that connects the twin hill resorts of Panchgani & Mahabaleshwar , it falls under Gureghar Village, Mahableshwar Taluka, Satara District, of Maharashtra State.

Geographically, it is a unique part of the Sahyadri Mountains of Western India – deemed by the UN as one of the 18 hotspots of bio-diversity on the planet. The Maharashtra Government has gazetted this as an eco-sensitive bio-reserve.

There is no motorable road - and the last kilometer of the journey will be on foot - to trek over a 50 million year-old tableland and forest to reach the site.

We hope you will re-connect through the fresh mountain air, water and a gentle lifestyle to our corner of the biosphere. The staff of Spandan looks forward to your visit and trust that the splendor of the Sahyadris will overpower the bare creature comforts of our spartan camp site.
