Set amidst rice fields along the coast, on the beachfront, The Other Side Studio is located in the tiny village of Bagdanda, a 15 minute ride from Mandwa jetty, on the other side of Mumbai.
An ecologically designed pavilion set in an old coconut grove, creates a flexible, multi-use space for workshops, events, corporate getaways, and other gatherings.
The minimalistic aesthetic and design of the studio space accentuates the natural surroundings while providing a comfortable setting for activities.
Blurring the gap between the outside and inside, the space invites connection and coexistence with the natural elements.
This is a 2000 sq ft open plan space, with a tall bamboo roof and a loft and storage area. It can comfortably seat 24-30 people for day-long workshops. For overnight stay, if you bring your sleeping bags, you can put them down in the same space accommodating up to 12 people.
Bathrooms: there are two toilets, and one outdoor shower
Kitchen: A pantry is available in the pavilion, and a full kitchen is accessible, as per need, where meals can be cooked.
Staff: 2 people are available onsite.
