Final choice would depend on where I am going to stay in Goa.
If it is South Goa, maybe I would take Belgaum-Khanapur-Anmod-Molem-Ponda-Madgaon.
If it is North Goa, I would take Nippani-Amboli-Savantwadi-Mapusa-Panaji
Just for the thrill of it, I would take the Hubli-Karwar route too
Seriously, I would take one route in and another out , so I enjoy both.
BTW, you do not have to g all the way to Belgaum to go to Amboli, you can turn off after Nippani or at Sankeshwar to go via Amboli.

Add to it:

Belgaum-Dharwad-Haliyal-Dandeli-Joida-Ganeshgudi-Ramnagar-Anmod-Ponda!

Pristine scenery, but bad roads. But views on the Kali river basin is just amazing.

I will do just that - take one way in and the other out - for driving is as experiential as the destination!

In case I take Amboli route on the way in - which is a better route - Nippani or Sankeshwar?

Sankeshwar-Amboli is better.

There are "n" number of good options to stay at Kolhapur. Opel is a budget optiona and is good. A few more you may want to consider are - Orient Crown, Ayodhya (You will find this while entering Kolhapur), Pearl, Raison Regency, Panchashil, International, Tourists (All these near ST stand), Vrishali (Just off course from your road but good)

By all metro standards, the hotels I mentioned above are "cheap" but considered expensive in Kolhapur

Not a good idea! You better call them and confirm booking. Though there are too many hotels on Kolhapur, I have still seen everything house full during vacation, this is mainly because of lot of people coming to visit mahalaxmi temple. I know this because Kolhapur is my home town You should be able to find the hotel phone numbers over the net.

Hey,

That is going to take the thrill out of keeping options open - but advice well taken and do remember Ashish did mention sometime back that when with wife and kids avoid the unknown - so I think will confirm the booking right away!

Cheers and thanks

The route you are planning to take is NH-4A which is always in pathetic condition and full of mining trucks both moving and parked for miles along the road. Even if you need to go to South Goa, avoid this route like the plague. Since you are staying overnite in Belgaum, you can take the Belgaum-Amboli-Sawantwadi route to Goa. This will add extra kms to your drive but believe me, its worth it, because once you enter Goa from the North side, the roads within Goa will be butter smooth as usual.

You can halt for breakfast at Kamath at Amboli if you take the route I have mentioed.

Hope this helps

Belgaum-Amboli route is the same as taking a right turn from under the bridge and going straight on the circle instead of going on the service road parallel to the highway right? (i.e I should take "Bauxite Road" and join State Highway 20 somewhere later i.e., Sawantwadi Road?) Kindly clarify. Thanks!
