Its a very good location near to Pune. I went there with my office colleagues and it was fabulous one day trip.
Rejuvenate yourself by doing plenty water activities. Rainy season is best to visit lavasa and you can not bore even if you are solo traveller.
Feed your self by many food joints ( local and branded as well).
There are many picturesque location which you can not afford to miss to capture.

"A very good place for all type of people" new review

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 1 week ago
Lavasa is a destination which can be visited on a weekend. This is a place for all type of people, couples, families, group of friends.

There are various places for different type of activities such as cycling, segways, water activities etc. During rainy season water activities are closed.

There are place where you can enjoy live music, flea markets, etc.

The only thing this place lacks in is good food.

"Nice place" new review

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
Plan your trip early in the morning, and it would be great if you have self-drive car, two wheeler will also be fine but you may face some trouble because of 4-5 kms rough road in between. Also if you are visiting during monsoon its better to have a car. Two wheeler is less safe in such situation as compared to car. Though I traveled by Activa and planned to leave early in the morning around 6 am from Pune. Atmosphere was awesome! You will really enjoy the place.

Caution : food and other things are very costly in Lavasa. Tip : it has one departmental store. Where you can get few food packets at reasonable rate.

"Road Trip to Lavasa" new review

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Lavasa had been a great journey so far on my Honda City Zxi. Moment you enter Lavasa from the main gate till the proper city, many turns and curves to drive through. I simply enjoy such curves with my car, as the turning radius and body dimension is such it over steer neither under steers. All the roads are properly maintained and Clean with greenery nourished. But be careful while driving through blind corners, you never know there will be some bad surprise. It wakes about less than an hour from main gate to the main city. Considering you are not driving rashly but driving with admiring natural beauty of mountains, valley, roads and greenery ans of course discussing with your co passengers ;)
I think it's a must visit by every Mumbai and Pune 'Kar. Would love to explore the water sports and river next time.
Always wear seat belts as safety is the only measure while will let you explore this world again.

"Nice place to visit"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
The USP of Lavasa is primarily the proximity to Pune - hardly 50 km. This place makes for the perfect day outing best enjoyed during the monsoons. A long drive from Pune to Lavasa is like the best hangout spot for the Pune youth. The beauty of this place grows multi fold during monsoons.

The Lakeside Promenade looks like a foreign location all together with multi cuisine restaurants lined up with boulevard kind of seating. The lake in the backdrop makes the perfect frame for many photos.

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 2 months 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 3 months 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 3 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 3 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.
