Peace and Joy

Lavasa is one of the well planned and artificially designed city. The climate of the Lavasa is what its main advantage. The boating at lavasa lake is best experience. In the evening you may nice crowd out there. The music is played different location in smooth experience. Whoever wants to search the hotels and rooms will find same they shown on the websites. No need to worry as many times the images shown on net doesn't matches with reality. The night life not much here. Many people comes for one day visit which are locals of Pune. So there is less crowd after 9 pm. But do not miss the early morning walk after 6-9 am. Which is best experience. I feel like my life gets extension of few years.
Food and Shopping:- The life and the restaurant of lavasa are at its best. There are some genuine shops but the cost of items is much higher. However, there are some restaurant who offer breakfast in early morning in european style is best experience. One must try the American style restaurant and bar.
There are resorts which are approved resorts and cheap compare to the hotels of the lavasa. Big group will find nice place to stay drink and dance. Best for couples.
Advice to Travellers:-
For new ones travel with google maps will be more helpful. Locals do not guide properly so do not ask them. Due to hilly area you may not have Mobile network at some places. In hotels give early intimation of what you like to have in dinner or lunch as they do not keep much stock of goods.

Leisure at Lavasa

The place is good, nicely planned and constructed. But it is yet not fully developed. There are huge properties remaining unbuilt after start of construction . The city has been attempted to be developed on concept of European cities with lake in middle of city and residential and commercial buildings around it. The scenic views are very good with mountains around. The whole place is neat and clean . You may spend late afternoon/evenings around the lake which is heart of township. All kind of continental food is available at reasonable prices. One may also enjoy water sports like water scooter, boating and bumpy ride. There are flats constructed for old age citizens which are really well planned and developed . The hotels in city are very expensive. However, one may book well in advance to get the best rates.
