We found a splendid retreat located right next to the Kundalika river, the river rafting hot bed for adrenaline junkies. River Retreat – Adventure Resort is a beautiful escape for those who love getting closer to nature. It may not be the most luxurious resort you’ll ever live in, but it’ll definitely be the one you’ll remember for its view.
It’s super affordable and at approximately INR 1,500 per head for one night (inclusive of all three meals). The river-facing rooms (almost all of them are) will welcome the first rays of the sun and a stunning view of the sunrise and sunset here. Kolad makes for a very doable day trip as well. So, if you’re not looking to stay here, just simply go have a day picnic here. Sit by the river and chow down on bhajiyas while time passes by slowly. We’ve also been told that their service is on point, along with their food.
How to get there: About three hours away from Mumbai, Kolad is easily accessible through the road (it may be a bit bumpy so prepare yourself). In case you are coming from Pune, it’ll be about about three-and-a-half hours.
