Where to stay in Ratnagiri

Despite the town's beach reputation, Ratnagiri's coastline remains relatively undeveloped in terms of accommodations, with only a few hotels and beach resorts along the shoreline. You can find additional options along Route 166, where establishments make the most of the area's pleasant hilly scenery. While a handful of low budget, basic guesthouses can be found around town, the majority of accommodations in Ratnagiri fall into the mid-range and high-end categories.
