Traveler Blog for Dala Rooster


Classy Stay! Very clean, relaxing and a must visit!


Dala rooster is a beautiful home away from home. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and Dilip and his wife ensure they are kept spick and span.

Das, the caretaker and his wife are fantastic cooks. They keep your stomach Happy all day long.
Das wants his guests Happy. Need anything? ask Das. The Indian version of Jeeves. Need a doctor? Or a masseur? ask das. Need kulfi or fish fry ask Das.
Monica is super warm and friendly. Most helpful and sweet.

Wish I could have stayed there forever!

Dala Rooster has large, clean rooms with a fantastic view. Wifi is available and the connectivity is better than I've seen in similar places.

The helpers around the house are friendly and extremely efficient.

The meals we had here were also hearty, tasty, and served in generous portions.

The location is pretty close to the main road, but still quiet. All we heard was birds chirping. No cars or traffic noises at all. The the valley view is a splendid sight to wake up to! We really enjoyed our stay here and look forward to returning soon.

Great place to stay with family and homely food. The view is amazing especially if you visit during monsoon. We had clouds all over the room. Food is typical maharashtrian home food. You don't get room service, it's more of a service apartment kind of thing. Top notch service with food customisation. The property is old but you don't feel that from the rooms. It's like home away from home with mesmerizing view'.

Enjoyed a really good experience here for a long weekend with family. Food was so tasty and the service was great. Felt very well taken care of. Highly recommend it.
One minor fixable issue was - WiFi not working well.

Dala Rooster is a cozy place, well situated in Panchgani. The property and all the rooms are very spacious, airy, well maintained and very clean. The staff is extremely attentive. The food was excellent.
Will definitely visit Dala Rooster again for an even longer stay.

Hi ! So we had the entire villa to ourselves and the experience was amazing. The staff - Sachin, Krishna, Swati and Kavita, the moment you meet they make you feel at home. Very genuine people and always making sure the guests are happy.
The rooms are spacious, clean and well maintained. They also have a lovely kitchen, living room and a backyard where we enjoyed amazing barbecue and bonfire. We enjoyed some delicious meals and snacks made by the staff.
We will be definitely coming back soon to relax and enjoy again. Thank you to everyone for a wonderful stay. :)

We were an extended family of 14, on a road trip from Hyderabad to Panchgani, for a mini family reunion of cousins, aunts and uncle from India and overseas. We stayed at Dala Mare from the 4th of January to the 9th of January 2023.We had the most memorable 5 days, thanks to the warm hospitality and care by our hosts, well-maintained facilities and the 5-star cleanliness! Our stay was most comfortable and our hosts ensured that we felt at home throughout our stay. There was enough room for each of us, with privacy when needed or space for getting together to play games or gather around a bonfire and barbeque in the backyard! The games room and gym was the icing on the cake! A home away from home, we will surely be staying here when we return to Panchgani next time!  Kudos to the Dala Mare team- Sachin, Krishna, Swati, Kavita and Kaaki.

Fantastic property with such delicious home cooked food that you will not feel like eating outside at all. We were here for 4 days and the hospitality, food and cleanliness was mind blowing. We had been to the other bungalow of Gokhale’s Dala Rooster about 4 years back and had a similar experience.

The lawn at Dala Mare was an added advantage and Albus our dog enjoyed it to the fullest. The staff made you feel welcome and gave ample privacy with amazing service. Prompt, Clean and Timely.

If bungalow is located at a quaint hill with ample places to go for a walk. Our walk to strawberry farms to pluck strawberries was also great. All in all, definitely a place that you should experience.

We visited Panchgani in the first week of March and stayed at Dala Mare. Not only visiting Panchgani but staying at Dala Mare was a wonderful experience in itself. The bungalow is very well maintained, clean, hygienic, spacious and well designed. The staff to were very co-operative and took care of our every need. Thanks to Mr. & Mrs. Krushna, Sachin and Kavita. The home-cooked food was delicious. The kids enjoyed playing in the lawn in front of the bungalow. It was like a home away from home. Would recommend this place to all and will surely visit again.

Monica / Capt Vikas - Many thanks 🙏 for everything. It has been the most memorable trip after 2 years of staying at home. The whole trip was full of warmth, comfort and those home cooked meals that I yearn for even when I am back. Swati is excellent and Krishna is very prompt if I ask him anything at all. The place has been maintained and so is the cleanliness. It always feels like being home at Dala mare. We love love this place. I can’t wait to go back and be sleeping peacefully in the lap of nature with those home-cooked meals served with love. Many thanks for hosting us. Also, next time, I would like to book the owners room as it’s bigger for Skylar. And, you know what was most heart warming was my dog Skylar running around carefree which I only get to see at Dala mare.
