Private Pool, Lawn & Free WiFi: Why We're Heading To This Gorgeous Villa

    What Makes It Awesome

    If you have been looking out for places to hold a family get together, then Caramba Villa in Panchgani is an option you should check out. Why are we recommending it for a family vacay? Because this three-bedroom luxury villa can accommodate up to 15 people, has a private pool with a covered skylight – possibly the only one in Panchgani, and other amenities that will increasingly add to your plush stay here.

    A self-check-in villa, you need to just speak to the guards and get in any time after 2 PM. A large lounge area right in the beginning with landscaped verandah and a huge television set makes for a good spot to start your day chit-chatting while you chalk out your plan. 

    How Do I Get There: About 250 km from Mumbai, Panchgani is a quiet little hilltop, also known as tableland as it’s a volcanic plateau. You can cab this four-hour journey, take your own car, or choose to take a bus, there is one every 20 minutes. Multiple trains ply on this route too. You can board one from CST and it will take you to Panchgani within four hours.

    Amenities: Private Pool with a skylight, self sufficient kitchen with appliances, board games, power backup (for all those electricity woes), daily housekeeping, ample parking and a gorgeous sunset view terrace. The three air-conditioned bedrooms are spacious and are equipped with everything that will make your stay comfortable. 

    Shell Out: The property is priced at INR 10,000 per night for up to six people, not something that will burn a hole in your pocket. But the rates may vary basis availability and season.


    Caramba Villa is much in demand and it’d be wise to book in advance.  If cooking is not your idea of a vacation, all nearby restaurants parcel here and you can also get house help (on additional cost) to come and whip up some local delicacies.
