If you're working, we know it can be tough to get away for long stretches of time. Here's where the weekend getaway comes in! A short, relaxing trip where you can recharge your batteries for the week ahead. If you live in Mumbai, chances are Lonavala is on your list of spots to check out for your next trip. We found a villa minutes away from Lonavala Lake that checks all the requirements for a fun weekend away from the city.
What We Love: Surrounded by lush greenery and away from the chaos of the busy marketplace, this hotel has cozy Spanish-style villas that you can book. Landscaped lawns surround the property and the villas, where you can relax and enjoy the calm. Feeling like a dip in the pool? There's huge pool that you can dive into on a hot summer day. Start each day with a hearty breakfast served in your room or at the hotel's in-house restaurant (it's included in the room price, which we love!). For sporty travelers, there's TT, cricket and more that you can enjoy on the property.
What's The Tariff: Rooms come in three types, and you can pick and choose according to your budget and requirements. Couples, you can go ahead and opt for the Standard Room (INR 6,500) This cozy abode even has a balcony where you can sip your cups of tea or coffee (there's an in-room coffee and tea maker) and cuddle up. For larger groups or families, there are two options - the Deluxe Room (INR 7,499) and the Family Suite (INR 10,000).
