    Treasure Island Resort

    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.

    The Machan

Fun fact: it's one of the 25 biological hotspots in the world. What we love about this resort is the ‘up in the air’ vibe of staying here. The tree houses are secluded and beautifully done-up with hardwood floors and large windows which allow for the fog to literally enter the room.
