Although you get away from the city life at Arwa Farms, you don’t necessarily have to stay away from city food. There are multiple restaurants options for both, vegetarian and non-vegetarian. However, if you would like to indulge in an organic meal it will cost you Rs 400 per person per meal. Lastly, if you are a group our domestic help can prepare the meal for you. You will, of course, need to bring your own food. You can tip our local cook if the food taste good.
We would be happy to connect you with nature. The idea is that you should be doing everything that you miss doing in a city. And there are quite a few things that we can suggest. Moreover, we also don’t have a TV but there is a music system. You are free to bring your own choice of music and connect with blue tooth. If you are desperate for internet then we can help you locate spots at the farm from where you can operate your mobile.
There is no check-in and check-out time. You can come at any time and are free to stay as long as you want to on your day of stay. However, if we have full bookings then we would request you to check-out by noon.
We would discourage you from applying any mosquito cream that would stop your skin from breathing. Arwa Farm is very well maintained and mosquito are not an issue. But during monsoon the problem does get aggravated and that’s nature. And we have to keep one thing in mind, that we are going out to stay in their place and most of the time they are very accommodating.
We have beds for 14 people and extra provision can be made on charpai. We can easily take up to 20/22 people. On several occasions, we have hosted overnight stays for birthday parties and pre-wedding functions.
Yes, most certainly. We have made adequate arrangements for old and “differently-abled” people who would need mechanically-assisted-transportation.

It all depends on you. If you want to soak in the green and are not very fussy about getting your hands and feet dirty in the soil then monsoon is for you. Many guests get involved in plantation and kids have a gala time.
Winter has a different charm. Early morning mist and singing birds have their own magic. Guest enjoy lazy mornings and piping hot tea and end up taking sun bath. And night time is for soft music and bonfire.
And the summer breeze is better than the scorching heat of the city. Plus, the fun of sleeping under the open sky has its own attraction.
Yes, we have our own dogs, cats, cows and chickens. And Im sure they would be more than happy to welcome friends from the city.
