With Konkan hotels ranging from budget to luxury, it is
possible for travelers with any budget to explore this coastal area rich
in history and culture. Opened up to visitors by the construction of a
railway connecting the area to larger nearby cities like Mumbai in the
early 90s, the Konkan area has grown as a tourist destination, bringing
its unique coastal cuisine and storied past beyond the dividing Western
Ghats mountain range.
Staying in Konkan
The Konkan area is defined as a narrow space between Sahyadri mountain
and the Arabian sea. It is part of the state of Maharashtra and is
separated into 5 districts. Though the boundaries of Konkan varies
depending on who you are talking to, generally the region is described
as the coastal area from Raigad to Mangalore.
Hotels here range considerably depending on which area of the Konkan coastline you will be visiting and what level of comfort and convenience you desire. While great deals can be found in Mangalore for beach properties, in Goa rates will be considerably higher depending on the location of your hotel in proximity to the beach. There is a complete range of amenities and accommodations throughout the region from very inexpensive (less than $10) to luxury (upwards of $100).
Many hotels prices here are based on amenities included with a big one being air conditioning versus a fan-cooled room. Do not put too much stock in this however, as unless you are staying at a luxury hotel, "brown outs" are very common and most hotels will not have a generator, rendering the manner of cooling useless.
