"Wonderful experience travelling in Lavasa"

  • 3.5/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
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.

"One of the best romantic places in the world"

  • 6/7

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 2 months ago
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.

"Lavasa at its best"

  • 7/7
  • Posted Sep 25, 2014
Lavasa is a great place with excellent atmosphere in the rains. It's a must visit destination like the other hill-stations in rains and during winter. Near to Waterfront Shaw hotel (lake facing), there is a small cafe with reasonable prices. Good VFM and a decent joint to chill. Lake has water based activities as well (we weren't able to do so because of rainy season). This destination is highly recommended and should be on your holiday list!

"Good Place to relax"

  • 5/7
  • Posted Sep 21, 2014
Lavasa is an ideal location for relaxing as there are not many places to roam around. I would suggest to stay in a nice resort with a great view (Ekaant completely fits the bill) and relax. Boating at waterfront, which in my opinion, is the one of the few places to visit, however, is closed during the monsoon season.
