The ideal place for chilling with the kids, family and friends. The floats and balls are ready, you come ready with the ‘fun’! And for those who don’t intend getting wet, sit out in the dry bar area watching on.
Challenge your sibling (or dad) to a game of Table Tennis. If that’s a bit too much for him, then try a game of Carrom. And yes, there’s a Cricket kit, Badminton raquets, Board Games and even Books if it’s some me-time you’re looking for.
FEEDING THE DUCKS
And if it’s just chill time that you’re looking for, come feed the koi fish and Donny and Daisy in their Duck pond home.
That’s if you care to ride around for some fun or teach the kids to balance on 2 wheels.
just walk around the 200-meter rustic Walking path around the property to connect with nature and stay fit. If it’ s a trek that you’re looking for, why not? head out for a cross country walk to Sajan Dam, across the fields that grow either mogra, veggies or rice, patiently waiting for the monsoons to start or subside.
This can certainly be fun. Especially if there are kids. The local tractor can be hired for a ride to the Sajjan Dam where they will wait for you for an hour as you take in the beauty of a pristine beautiful lake that still seems undiscovered.
Things To Do Beyond Kenwoods
About a 10-minute drive from Kenwoods is the Sajan Sam reservoir. Tucked in the middle of nowhere and perfect for the nature enthusiast.
Did you know that Vikramgad is the heart of the origin of this tribal art which is still practised? It centres around Mother Nature and farming as a way of life. The red background was the clay used on the house walls and the white paint was a mixture of flour and water. All applied with the help of a ‘chewed-at-the-end’ bamboo stick. Check out the nearby villages like Alonda or drive to Jawahar for some Warli art.
14 kms from Jawahar, is one of the highest perennial waterfalls near Mumbai, cascading down 300 feet and particularly spectacular during the monsoons. This of course, will warrant you spending more than a day or two at the farm.
The Jai Vilas Palace here, built on a hill top, is a historic tourist attraction and was the residential palace of the Mukne royal family. The architecture was a blend of Indian and Western style built with majestic pink stones from a quarry 12 kms from its location. If you are staying for a few days at the farm, 1 hour drive for a ‘dekho’ is so worth it.
