    Infinity Pool, Open-Air Bathroom & More: This Beautiful Retreat Is Giving Us Major Travel Goals

    Divya posted on 09 February

    What Is It?

    Kondan ‘The Retreat’ is part of an exclusive environment-friendly project called ‘The Lake City’, which brings you the best of accommodation in the lap of nature. This resort is all about a value-for-money experience, so check-in if you’re looking for a delightful experience.

    How Do I Get There?

    Kondan ‘The Retreat’ is located around 82km from Pune {closer to Pimpri, in fact}, and is accessible by road. There is a map with the directions on their website, and they are happy to help you in case of any difficulty in finding the place. The roads are a little rough, but the scenery makes it all worth your while – wide open spaces, lush greenery and wind turbines provide a happy distraction.

    What's So Unique About It?

    The architecture is a blend of modern luxury with rustic style; you’ll find sprawling gardens, tree-lined pathways, a cliff-side infinity pool, a communal seating area made with recycled glass bottles, and a large open-air restaurant, here. There are two styles of accommodation available – the Amrai: large villas which have a private courtyard and in-room jacuzzi; and the Tarangan: cliff-side rooms with gorgeous views, an inbuilt floor hammock, and open-air bathroom. The former is ideal for families with kids {due to the extra space}, and the latter is more popular among couples – because of the romantic mountain-side views. We, personally, love the room called Tarangan. What makes it even cooler is that the room costs include all meals – served buffet-style. What is a little disappointing is that there are no other restaurants around. However, don’t worry, the buffet spread here is simplistic but good. The staff are all employed locally from nearby villages and undergo training to deliver the best hospitality service you can imagine.

    Anything Else?

    Activities like nature walks, basketball, carrom, and badminton can be arranged for. If you’re travelling in a group of minimum 5 people, you can avail a group package. Bookings can be made directly via their website or over the phone. They’re also renovating parts of the property, adding 25 new rooms and suites, a conference center, sky bar/lounge, a gym and spa. If you’re looking for a weekend getaway that is close to nature without being overcrowded by tourists, look no further than Kondan – The Retreat!
