"Lavasa isn't a destination" new review

  • 5/7
  • Posted Yesterday
It's a 5 star refreshment stopover on your road trip. And why not, it's scenic, it's organised, it has parking and it has awesome restaurants! Of course there are toilets, but that's not what you do at highway stops only. You pride yourself of finding the place, and eating a good filling yummy meal and feeling relaxed in the pseudo Europe like experience.

But this is the best pseudo Europe I've seen unlike what the Chinese are building in Macau. What they are there making is amazingly difficult - giving Ego a shape and size.

Lavasa is pure casual pseudo Europe. Hey, wait! Doesn't that make it more genuine?

Anyway there are hotels and hotels of many kind which require a pay grade higher than mine to make sense checking in. After all you want to check in because you want to check in.

But you know the real trick in Lavasa is not to stay there. But to take the road less travelled. No, like literally!!! There is a village road which you will miss when you leave Lavasa. (oh you will!! Trust me) that road is called Lavasa Panshet road. Thats where you will understand why I titled my review so!!

Until then you should just understand that there is an all American diner!! The only one outside India Habitat Center, Delhi! And if you don't understand the significant of that - there are great spots to take pictures, the paint job on those colourful buildings is disappointing but it goes well for your DSLRs. There are boat rides, adventure games, pigeons, people, lovely weather and the snob value.

Go for it, but don't forget where NOT to turn! See you there

"An awesome place to visit in rainy season" new review

  • 7/7
  • Posted 1 week ago
I along with my friends visited Lavasa last year during rainy season. Even before we reached this place the sightseeing on the way from Pune amazed me. I was literally able to touch the clouds. We were most impressed with the organization in Lavasa. After entering Lavasa, there are guards stationed at number of places which can help you navigate the city. I was also surprised seeing the good state of cleanliness in Lavasa. People who want a teaser of European styled cities can visit Lavasa.

Lavasa- a hill station near Pune is a must see place if you are travelling to pune and want to spent a very good time with family or friends. Their are many sightseeing spots to visit just around 60 km from Pune. Its a artificially made city and is very beautiful. Recommended month to visit - September to March.

I will suggest this place in rainy season more because while going to Lavasa we pass through many hills. In rainy season you will get more greenery which is calm and pleasant. After reaching to lavasa there are so many places to visit but I enjoyed Boating. Overall good place for 1 day.

"Wonderful experience travelling in Lavasa"

  • 3.5/7
  • Posted Dec 4, 2014
It was wonderful experience travelling in Lavasa. Was too much fun. The climate was too cold. The place is very well-maintained. Cleanliness maintained here is really appreciable. Only problem here is that food and hotels are very costly. We all friends stayed here for two days. The amazing climate made it a place worth paying for. Scenic beauty is enchanting, Overall experience was good at Lavasa.

Its very nice experience to be at lavasa. Food stalls are there but the rate are bit high compared to normal price. You should take a ride at the speed boat in the evening time. Better to carry good resolution camera and sports shoes. Its one of the best romantic places in India.

"A good place to relax on your weekend trip"

  • 4/7
  • Posted Nov 19, 2014
Lavasa is a fantastic place. It has an international touch. The climate, the food, the surroundings all give an amazing pleasure. It's a must visit destination. It is a well planned city in the hills. Away from city it is great a place to relax. Its a tourist spot for few hours of relaxation on a Sunday trip.

"A fabulous delight to the eyes"

  • 5/7
  • Posted Oct 13, 2014
Visiting Lavasa city was an international experience. The architecture, city planning and design is an replica of few famous Italian cities. The ambiance, water sports and the evening shopping are a delight. You'll enjoy the free city tour and a joyful ride to the city the best, when going as a couple. It is near a waterfront and the riverside hotels and accommodations help to experience the weekend getaway to the fullest. A best romantic getaway for a couple.

"The best place to enjoy you holidays"

  • 7/7
  • Posted Oct 11, 2014
Lavasa is a fantastic place that every person should visit to get a warm vacation. Especially in the Rainy Season. The climate, the food, the surroundings, the rain, the lifestyle, the weather and the places to see, everything is worth to have a look at. Having a choco-lava at ccd in raining night is the best experience.
