Did You Know That There's A Treasure Island 2 Hours From Mumbai?
While most of us would have read RL Stevenson's Treasure Island as kids, that inspiration has held true for a resort with the same namesake, just 100 kilometers from Mumbai. Read on.
What Makes It Awesome
Treasure Island Resort in Lonavala is famous locally for conducting wedding ceremonies, but it's also a great place to head to if you want to escape the city for a short holiday.
The resort has spacious lawns, and even is a great place to plan a corporate event or even a training camp, just close to the city, yet giving you that private hill station feeling.
This Lonavala resort has a lovely pool, perfect to jump into after a long, tiring day outside, exploring the serene town of Lonavala. What we loved is that they even have lovely outdoor area to play games like badminton and more; and even a fitness centre with a sauna. Sounds perfect, right?
In case you're thinking of a wedding, birthday or any other celebration venue option, there are enough to get you going. There's a lawn area right next to the pool that can accommodate around 2,000 people easily. There's another area called Lagoon Lawns that gives you the best backdrop you could ask for - a view of the hills.
They have lagoon villas where each separate villa opens near the pool and has a private sit-out. If you're traveling with a group, this makes for a great place to unwind. The rates are INR 8,500 for the weekend with breakfast and dinner included.
The room rates start at INR 5,000 for weekends (inclusive of breakfast) and INR 2,500 for weekdays (inclusive of breakfast).
