The host & the team were warm & welcoming! We learnt art, restoration, nature preservation & nature friendly way of living. Highly recommended place for a volunteer to learn & experience local Maharashtrian culture. Felt a part of the community without any pressure of delivering. Will definitely volunteer at Avanti Art Resort again

You'll feel welcomed as worldpackers! The entire staff was caring and professional round the clock. Community living at it's best. All of them, including the host made sure the entire stay was as comfortable as possible. Tasks were soothing, there's something about hands on work that's satisfying. Would definitely stay there again!

My overall experience at Avanti Kalagram had been phenomenal. From traditional Maharastrian cuisine to the comfort of living in mountains I have enjoyed the every bit of my stay. My host Pranav and his parents made me feel comfortable right from the first day.

Throughout my stay I was exposed to various art forms from bamboo art to bottle art using M-seel. I even learnt quite a bit of gardening and landscaping from Gowri mam. Deepak sir is also a wonderful person, if you ever get a chance to understand the deep insights and vision he has towards Avanti Kalagram, you will be amazed.
