Discover the world of exotic spices on a spice tour

Dudhsagar Plantation is located in South Goa, at the foothills of the Western Ghats. Visit us for spice tours as well as farmstay holidays. The plantation is also available for gatherings and get togethers.

Doris and Ajit Malkarnekar started this agricultural venture in 1985. The plantation today boasts of a vast variety of fruit bearing trees, spices, medicinal plants, herbs and flowers, which altogether form a vibrant tropical garden. Free range chicken and dairy farming complete the variety this organic farm has to offer.

WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY
“The Dudhsagar Plantation is a lovingly-tended, peaceful place with all kinds of spices and herbs growing in its vast area. A short walk from the property, there’s a clean river running over pebblestones, ideal for swimming. A swim in the river, a delicious vegetarian lunch, a tour of the spice farm, and cashew fenny shots to taste all make for a bucolic, down-to-earth experience – a far cry from the commercialized spice farms with souvenir shops and impersonal tours. Would definitely recommend it.”Janelle Meier/Berlin
“Already for a few years the marvellous garden created by Ajit Malkarnekar became for me the place of inspiration. The unique garden is one of my favourite places in India to visit, to rest, to read, to work (as an artist). I have found a real paradise here.”Olga Okuneva/Amsterdam
“Apart from the lovely farm and greenery, this place has a magical down to earth feel to it. I suggest visiting this place to those people who like nature and who want to rewind, relax for few days. Will go back for a visit soon, the smell and taste of the excellent food I ate there is still lingering in my memory.”Raj Anand/Cologne
“The river is amazing to swim in. Its totally safe, and I highly recommend it to those who have an affinity to swim in natural bodies of water. We had a good time there, and will definitely visit again.”Shraddha Borawake/Pune
