City life getting to you? Ditch everything and head to this quiet, serene and isolated island resort of Jalsrushti at Mulshi, a one and a half-hour drive from Pune, and three hours from Mumbai.
A picturesque cottage resort amidst lush green surroundings, quaint ponds and clear lakes, Jalsrushti is almost like a dream come true. The resort has 14 spacious cottages against the backdrop of lemon and strawberry gardens. While eight cottages (Jalshup) are fully wooden and overlook a calm blue river, the rest of the cottages (Jalaka) are well-appointed and have a mesmerising pond view.
What’s more? Spend a romantic afternoon at the resort’s enchanting swimming pool; go for a walk in their organic farm; take a rickety bullock cart ride across the property; request for a bonfire at the front yard and relish a perfect candlelight dinner with bae. The resort restaurant provides breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. Lunch and dinner include unlimited veg/non-veg buffet of mouthwatering regional and organic food.
Price for Jalshup (river-side cottage) comes to INR 11,700 per night for two, from Sunday to Thursday; INR 12,900 per night for two on Friday & Saturday.
