First Impression

Once upon a time, 15 years ago, a group of eccentric nature lovers sat atop Lasni Temb, a mountain 817 meters high and pondered upon a dream that was close to their heart. A dream that would one day evolve into one of the region’s finest nature resorts. A wild dream aptly named Wildernest.

Wildernest is nestled in the majesty of the Sahyadris.

Enjoy the Tranquility amidst sprawling wildscapes of blues and greens. Nothing can possibly describe the unusual opulence and picturesque setting of Wildernest. Come, begin a tryst at this hidden paradise and take a break from the monotony.

A small turn and a touch of magic prevails in the air. Even the fall of a solitary leaf disturbs the silence as you are in the company of Lord Krishna! Our meditation center and temple is a rare blend of simplicity and design and thus enables your inner soul to connect to nature at its best.
