"Lovely Lavasa" new review

  • 5/7
  • Posted 1 week ago
Lavasa, Independent India's only Hill Station is truly a beautiful place. It's a very nice place to be especially during the Monsoon season. I had stayed here for a weekend during June of this year. It's just a 4 hour drive from Mumbai. The best thing about Lavasa is the Europe Style Promenade that they have created. You can find plenty of options for Food & Drinks at the promenade. I really loved the place & am planning to go there again.

"Most beautiful place" new review

  • 7/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
It just gives the best view and it is even more better if we go with our loved one. Peaceful and beautiful are the two words that describes it the best. It has a small pond which gives us the exact view of Venice, Italy. The best place for honeymoons and relaxation.

"A View with a Difference" new review

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
The uniqueness of this place lies in a perfect blend of nature and human touch. The mountains or the seas in our country exude immense natural beauty but this place has been given a twist by incorporating the scenic resources it has. The promenade around the lake and the houses painted in stark yellow and orange somehow reminded me of Amsterdam and the bridge over the lake though remotely is reminiscent of the Bridge of Sigh in Venice. However, the beauty of this place was ruined because of a huge crowd present on the spot as though the whole of Mumbai and Pune were visiting the place that weekend. Since the place has a European touch I expected much more variety in the type of restaurant and much better food quality. In this aspect, I was a little disappointed. And I certainly expected a few shopping halts along the promenade. Frankly, I saw none. I must end my review with a positive note and that is, the view of Lavasa at night is breathtaking from all corners of the place.

"Unforgettable weekend in Lavasa" new review

  • 6/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
Lavasa is not only about mesmerizing nature, but it's a perfectly planned city that I have ever visited. I visited Lavasa last weekend with my friend to be a part of Freedom weekend in Lavasa. I was very lucky to be a part of such a fabulous event. It was all about fun, entertainment and masti. Performance of Harshi Mad (Indian Idol UK winner), Panchi Band and DJ Rink was just like icing on the cake. Overall, it was a great fun.

"Offbeat drive" new review

  • 5/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
Nice place to visit in monsoon. Climate is nice and cool. But avoid weekends or you will be stuck in heavy traffic for hours and place will be too crowded. Try to make booking in advance and go for a overnight stay. Food and stay is a bit costly but you can enjoy.

"A feel of ultra modern urban place"

  • 5/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
If you want to spend an evening away from the noise and rush of city life, and are bored with almost similar hill stations like Lonavla and Khandala, and if you are feeling lazy to go for trekking and want to feel sophisticated and want to get a feel of ultra modern urban place then Lavasa is the place for you. Just 2 - 2. 5 hr drive from Pune, this place is almost a mini Italy.

The modern architecture in the midst of a valley and a lake just feels awesome. Grab a cup of coffee, sit and relax on the side of the lake. Let the children's enjoy the 2 seater bicycle, jet ski and other water sports while you lazy around in the old fashioned self driven boat with your soul mate. Beat time is the evening but if you want to spend a complete day then you can spend the afternoon at the multiplex which runs regular Bollywood movie show. There is fee for the visit but for other activities like water activities, cycling etc. The restaurants are a bit costly but there are hell lot of options from Indian to Continental. The shops get open after 10 am so no need to rush in early morning.

"Covered with greenery, clouds and crystal clear water"

  • 7/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
If you want to take a break from your busy schedule and go out for a meaningful detour, then Mulshi is the place to be at during rainy seasons. It is covered by greenery, low altitude clouds and never ending beauty of nature, crystal clear water will make you regret about discovering this place so late. This part of city has hardly been explored, it is 1000 times better than Lonavala even local population is also less. Low and dense clouds in rainy season makes it more beautiful. And don't forget to bring extra pair of shorts with you.

"A great place for an extended weekend"

  • 5/7
  • Posted May 3, 2015
Lavasa is an amazing escape from the hectic city life. Amidst the Western Ghats, Lavasa can be a good place for a weekend or a couple of days for those who have busy work schedule and cannot afford a lot of days on leave. This place has some amazing water sports and adventure activities at The Waterfront Shaw. Best time to visit would be monsoon and since its not that far from Mumbai/Pune one can drive their way till here. Proper Maharashtrian food can be relished. All you need is a camera, a few pairs of clothes and your weekend will be made!

"Good place to visit for relaxing"

  • 7/7
  • Posted Mar 27, 2015
Good place to visit during rains and winters. 2 hours away from Pune. Relaxing time, go there after 3 pm to experience less heat during summers. Found the place clean and green but nothing more. Food and services very extraordinarily expensive and of horrid quality.
