130, awata is here to share and create an experience for you, which is in sync with local landscape & culture. It's a space designed to 'do nothing'. The stay and food is crafted for an off-grid location in order to explore, connect with nature, unlearn & rejuvenate.
We would sincerely request you to take time out and read about us in the space below and our website for we wish to create a rejuvenating experience for you.

The space
130, awata is an off-grid art residency and a farm stay located deep in the tribal belt of North-East Maharashtra, at the back waters of upper lake Vaitarna.

~ TRAVEL ~
There are various routes from Mumbai & Nasik, which takes approx. 4 hours and 1.5 hours respectively. The interior meandering roads through the tribal belts are scenic, safe and well kept.

~ COTTAGE ~
The 'Twin Red Brick Cottage' which you are seeing is similar to the 'Twin Yellow Stone Cottage', apart from them we have our cafeteria, studio space, workshop & our house on the premises.
The twin cottage is a comfortable & spacious space for 4 adults/family. On a higher side it can accommodate 8 guests. Each section of the cottage has an attic, a living room, a changing space, a washroom, sit our area and a separate entrance. Each has a queen bed on the attic. If there are additional members we can make a comfortable arrangement in the living rooms for an additional charge per person.
The two sections are also connected by a lockable door.

~ F O O D ~
Our place being off-grid, we would love to cook for you. We can serve freshly cooked vegetarian meals at an additional charge depending on your liking. We can set-up barbecue for special arrangements for a small celebration. We would need you to share your availability & likings 48 hour prior to your visit.

~ W E A T H E R ~
Located by the lake and surrounded by hills weather is an integral part of experience.
Winters (Nov, Dec, Jan & Feb) is the best time ranging from cool to cold with a morning mist.

Summers (March, April & May ) so are hot afternoons but pleasant and cool evenings with brown landscape.
Mosoon (June, July & Aug) no doubt is at its best with heavy rainfall and lush green landscape.

We would be happy to take this conversation forward to know about you and share about us in order to plan for a memorable experience for you.

Me & ma wilder half moved to awata after experiencing our share of island life in mumbai. Leaving my academic & his advertising life behind, we decided to live in the middle of nowhere by the side of a magnanimous lake.
A memorable part of this journey was the local tribal community whom we have been associated with over the years through our social initiative Shunya jagrun joining hands to create this sustainable space all by ourselves.
Currently we are exploring the art of handcrafted soap making, bee keeping & farming .
We look forward to having you part of this family & sharing this experience of a remote lifestyle with you.
