"Very good experience" new review

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
Good location but due to water shortage all over Maharashtra Lavasa water rivers are also dried. Other wise excellent to be there we were lucky to have little bit rain in mid night. So we walk down to riverfront. Chill winds. Would like to visit after rainy season.

"Must see place near Bombay"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
We went to Lavasa in June, it was heavy rainfall when we reached there. It looks very beautiful in rail, lake scenery with well managed houses. Surrounding is awesome. Nature walk is very amazing, must go there. Lavasa is first planned hill city and managed by government. Please have a proper map of Lavasa when you visit.

"Awesome place for weekend getaway"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Lavasa is an awesome place to visit as a weekend getaway with family or with friends. It is an artificial city which is easily accessible from Pune and Bombay. I went from Pune by car. It is around 65 kilometers from Pune and it takes an hour drive from Pune to reach there. Try to go in rainy season as it will be very hot and difficult to visit in summer. Also one can enjoy watersports and boating there.

"Peace lies at this place"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
1st time I have been to this place and this place was as much as that I ever thought of. When you need peace and want to explore perfect sunset, then this place is just amazing. Go and explore more. This place will never disappoint. Road trip to this place will always be a great deal. Just a bit costly place. But money hardly matters when memories is all you crave for.

"A nice weekender destination"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
If you want to relax away from the hustle-bustle of routine city life, Lavasa is the destination. If this destination was pleasant even during summer, it should be really awesome during monsoon time, which I have decided and am planning to experience. The lakeshore watersports are quite good, but very expensive. All rates are 'per-person' basis, which can be reduced for a family, as a package.

Though there are half-constructed sites around, the overall looks are great.

"A weekend retreat"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Lavasa, a city surrounded by serene hills and nature is an amazing place to spend your weekends together with family and friends. Lush greenery, ample space to sit and enjoy, food joints, etc are a few things that will make your time spent here a leisure experience. Although most things are sold here at a premium and some people might not like the price, I would recommend carrying your own food and stuff to munch on, though you should give it a try to the variety of things available here. I have always ridden my bike to Lavasa, specially during spring or monsoon time, and it has always been a leisure trip. On a bike you always enjoy the twists and turns and the city keeps calling you back.

"Nice place"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
We have suddenly plan 1 day outing from Mahabaleswer. We have check out at 10 am and going to Lavasa. After 3 to 4 hour's travelling we have reached at Lavasa 2 pm we have enjoyed it. Lavasa is the very well maintained place. Only in 3 to 4 hours you seen all Lavasa and than nothing to do. So we left from Lavasa and finally reached Mumbai at night. Lavasa is a expensive city so please keep food and drinking water if children are there.

"Beautiful place"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Lavasa is a lovely place, located right in the midst of mountains. The lake view is amazing. The whole city is so well planned and colour co-ordinated that it looks beautiful. The architecture seems to be inspired by Venice and Florence and the overall look is quite European. There are fun activities for all, like water sports, speed boats, small cruises, rifle shooting, shopping, lots of restaurants, etc. It's a good place to visit for 2-3 nights with family of friends. The only caution though is that the journey to reach Lavasa is not a very smooth travel as the road is through the Ghats and has too many twists and turns which can make one a little giddy. Also, you definitely need to have your own vehicle as without that you would feel restricted to go anywhere. The place is expensive and so you need to be willing to shell out cash to have a good time. If these things are managed then you can surely enjoy your stay here.
