Let's be honest, we've always wanted to get away from the concrete jungle to a space that just screams nature. And, we totally feel it's important to step out of the hum-drum daily schedule and take some time out for that much needed soul-searching and escape to the hills or the next best thing. Well, we've found you the next best thing - Chinoy Chalet.
Hidden in the dense forest in Mahabaleshwar is a lovely chalet and premium villas that make up for all the city woes you've been experiencing. Over here, we're going to focus on the chalet, a space that gives you a forest view, and is chock-full of all the modern amenities you're used to. Apart from the usual, there's also a barbecue facility, a lawn area, a games area (table tennis and carrom) and a lovely seating area on the terrace, overlooking the dense greenery. It's located on the old Mahabaleshwar road, and is close to a lot of popular lookouts - Arthur's Seat, Kate's Point and more.
What we truly love is that if you're a pet parent, you'll be able to enjoy this better with your furry baby, because the place is pet-friendly. This is the perfect season to head out here and enjoy the space that's full of lush greenery. We've also heard that there's a small seasonal waterfall around the space, so that's a bonus, isn't it?
