I travelled to Amboli from Tarkarli. We were greeted by the famous Amboli waterfalls just before entering the small town, Amboli. As it was raining the entire area was covered in mist. I had booked 5 rooms at Whistling Woods almost 6 weeks ago. Mr Hemant Ogale was kind enough to block the rooms for us. The rooms were neat...

I have been to other properties in Amboli, and this by far the best place to stay in Amboli. A quaint little place run by a very passionate naturalist and photographer who also happens to be a great host. The rooms are large and spacious and the bathroom is pretty clean.

I was here on a research trip...

This property has all the ingredients to get a 5/5 but for its service. The location is outstanding.. greenery all around. You would find native trees and exotic flowering plants. Rooms are spotless.. including the washroom. Now the problems with the service. Agreed that this is not a big hotel and we cannot expect great service but I am referring...

I wouldn't recommend any other place if you are visiting Amboli. Nice & cosy rooms, courteous staff, timely service and personal attention by Ogale's makes Whistling Woods unique with a home stay feel. Nestled in the bio-diverse jungles of Amboli, Whistling Woods offers something for everyone - researchers, nature enthusiasts, photographers and family holidaymakers. Let me not forget to mention...
