Arwa Farms – A Nature Friendly Destination

Imagine a place where you are standing still.

All that’s around you is greenery.

There are calm winds creating a soothing sound.

You do nothing but get immersed in this moment.

This moment is of nothingness.

Sometimes doing nothing is good.

Arwa farms are one such place that has all of the above. This is the brainchild of ace photographer Fawzan Husain, a photographer who has been in the corporate industry for almost 2 decades capturing moments commercially and also in Bollywood. He now has created a place that’s organic, nature friendly and perfect for those who like to unwind with a calm environment away from the city.

The meaning of Arwa is “Pure”. As the name suggests, Arwa Farms is a pure source of environment in or around Mumbai.

You can find this farm 15-20 minutes away from Dahanu Rd station. For Mumbaikars, this should not be more than a 2-3 hour drive away. On the first look, you can witness the house being made using the bare minimum of non-nature-friendly materials. Using bricks, wood, and every other nature-friendly material, this place has been created.

There are many rooms which can accommodate a group of 4-5 in a single room and also a separate room for couples. They have open space on the ground floor and also on the first floor. Both the open spaces are amazing, windy and perfect for playing games, huddling up and sharing stories and also having a drink and enjoying your dinner.

The ambiance in this Mumbai staycation is amazing.

The area of Arwa farms totals to 7 acres.

Yes, 7 long acres of greenery, plantation of lemongrass, dragon fruits, and pineapple, different leaves which are good for your health and many more. The manure is created here on the farm and utilized for growing everything. Most of the food you get to try has been grown on the farm itself. Having unpolished food, salt, sugar, etc was something I only experienced back in Mangalore. It was nostalgic for me to be here and remember my home town.

Same goes for dal and the rest of the food.

When someone will ask me, what’s the hot topic about this place that makes me visit it instantly; I would say “There is nothing here”. Only like-minded people will understand & rejoice to visit such a place. There is no air conditioning and television. The network connection fluctuates all the time. If you like to connect with nature minus technology and leisure, this is the place you ought to visit. My stay here was nothing less than exceptional. Fawzan was an amazing host. On the farm daily, you can find him with the workers helping around with the farming. His creation is a way of giving back to nature and that’s what I adore. It takes a lot of passion and will take so much effort.

Greenery in Dahanu, Mumbai is too good to be true.
