I have been a regular visitor at Fariyas Resort in Lonavala. I prefer taking a cab since it avoids the hassle of driving on the route which is crowded on weekends.

I looked up online for "Mumbai to Lonavala Taxi One way" since I wanted to travel on friday and return on sunday, and I came across multiple websites. The intercity cab business in India is improving quickly, as on earlier trips I have chosen to travel by my own car since cabs used to be too expensive. I compared fares on various websites and I chose to use onesidetaxi, since their website looked really professional and they were offering me the best fare.

Just like their website, their booking process was also extremely professional and I did not have to call them even once to confirm the booking. It was a hassle free process on their website and I received an instant confirmation from them. They even sent me the driver's details in time so as to enable me to communicate with him.

I had only requested a regular sedan, however, I was pleasantly surprised by the free upgrade to a corolla altis. The driver was extremely friendly, and the car had an excellent music system with bluetooth music as well as GPS navigation.

I had an excellent trip and I would recommend onesidetaxi to all holidayiq travellers.

Mumbai is the place where you have many ways to travel to your destination. One of the best way which I have travelled to Lonavala was this AC bus. It has a push back seat and it also has a TV. The seats are properly maintained and the AC was quite good. One can enjoy this ride. This travel also provides Mumbai darshan.

As such, I love to drive on Mumbai - Pune expressway. However driving to Tungi Lake Pavna was a special experience.

The time of our visit coincided with onset of monsoon and the area had already received a few showers. Hence the entire stretch wore a emerald look - lush green!! This made our journey even pleasant.

There are sufficient number of food and water outlets where one can break journey - making it less tiresome! There are fuel stations and service station available on the expressway.

Overall - Great Drive! Really Enjoyed it!!

I and few of my friends from Pune and Mumbai were looking for a nice property for a half day get together on one Saturday and that is when one of our friends (member of club mahindra) suggested this place.

The place is a hidden gem, I must say. The location, though a bit difficult to...more »

We drove from Goregaon, Mumbai to Karla, Lonavala via the Mumbai Pune Expressway & as always, it was a smooth drive. While going, we used the SCLR from Kalina & on the way back we cut off from Thane using the Thane Belapur Road & Airoli Bridge to reach the Eastern Express Highway & then took the JVLR to reach the Western Express Highway at Jogeshwari. After the Khalapur Toll Plaza at Khopoli, we stopped for Breakfast at the Dosa Plaza in the Food Court & had tasty Upma, Sheera & Filter Coffee. We left the Expressway at the second Lonavala Exit to go straight to the MTDC Resort at Karla. The expressway has indeed made a great change both in terms of driving pleasure as well as saving of time & it is indeed a real boon.

I always visit places in Mumbai by driving my own car. It ease, comfort and flexibility of managing time. I don't have to wait for someone or depend on someone. Plus I am able to enjoy my ride. I spend time as per my comfort, I stop at places whenever required. I generally travel at time when I get less traffic i.e. on weekend. Otherwise i avoid office timings if I have to travel on a weekday.

I had to write Lonavala as there is no option for adding Imagica.
