Dear Romantics In Mumbai, 10 Ways To Make A Great Impression On Your First Date
Making someone feel special ain't a task anymore! HolidayIQ Travellers list ways to make a great impression on your first date.

Dear Romantics In Mumbai, 10 Ways To Make A Great Impression On Your First Date:

  1. Mumbai (Maharashtra)
  2. Harishchandragad Fort, Malshejghat (Maharashtra)
  3. Karnala Fort, Karnala (Maharashtra)
  4. Amboli (Maharashtra)
  5. Karjat (Maharashtra)
  6. Alibaug (Maharashtra)

1. A Candlelight Dinner At The Indigenous Rain Forest Restaurant


Rain Forest – a resto bar renders an indigenous theme contemplating the green serenity. Get mesmerised by the lush, green rainforest and have the awe-inspiring experience of standing in the heart of a jungle. A date at this restaurant will make certain that you have a second date.

2. Have Endless Conversations With Some Irish Coffee At Prithvi Cafe


A pocket friendly cafe known for its Irish coffee, cutting chai and brownies. One can talk by hours with minimalistic disturbance. Mostly frequented by intellectuals and theatre artists, the cafe is adorned with gorgeous trees, bamboo and plants.

3. Laugh Till You Fall Off At Canvas Laugh Factory In Lower Parel


The first date supposedly the ice breaker for most couples. Why stare at each other while eating dinner when you can laugh your ass off at the Canvas Laugh Factory. Countless stand up artists have bestowed the venue with the grace, and made thousands laugh till they cry. Go there along with your partner preferably before dinner would be better idea, as laughing would invoke your appetite.

4. Go Shopping Together At The Colaba Causeway


Break the norm of coffee or dinner for a date, indulge into an activity like shopping for a change. Shopping together will save you from all the awkward silence and provide you with fodder to keep the conversation alive. Help each other pick out some funky stuff, have fun bargaining and then grab something to munch at the numerous cafes like Piccadilly or Cafe Churchill.   

5. Trek To Harishchandragad Fort


Harishchandragad fort has got an alluring natural beauty, along with a diverse flora and fauna. It's famous for its marvellous natural beauty, tough trek trails and the beautiful Konkan Kada. It is deemed as a trekker's paradise by many as you can do rappelling, rock climbing & valley crossing in the one trek itself. A trek like this would help you bond like no candlelight dinner or long drives across city can.

HolidayIQ Traveller Ajinkya Dhamnskar shares, “I did a night as well as a day trek and both the times the pleasure was outstanding. Must visit this place, things to be carried are water, First aid box, dry eatables, extra pair of clothes and tissues or napkins.”

6. Explore The Karnala Fort And Bird Sanctuary Together


The Karnala Fort also called the Funnel hill is located in Raigad, about 10 km from Panvel. Although the fort lies in ruins now, the surrounding area coupled with the bird sanctuary and the fresh air give the whole scene a unorthodox air of romanticism.

HolidayIQ Traveller Suyog Patil from Mumbai shares, “Best time to travel this fort is between June and September. Once you reach at bottom of this fort, you will have to pay for parking vehicles and entry fee for you. If you go straight to the road, you will find few steps and rocks heading you towards the fort. Make sure to have high gripped shoes and 2-3 litres of water with you while travelling up. Also, you will see different species of birds during this period if you are lucky enough to have one view.”

7. Experience The Quaint And Natural Beauty Of Amboli


Amboli, receiving an annual rainfall of about 750 centimeters, is considered the wettest region in Maharashtra. The heavy rainfall has contributed to the growth of forest along the steep hills of Amboli. During the rainy season, the hill station is shrouded with mist and numerous waterfalls can be seen gushing down from the hills. Imagine spending time in such an environment, best date ever.

HolidayIQ Traveller Shreyas Gawande from Goa shares, “Beautiful scenery and best location for wildlife lovers. Awesome place to visit with family and friends. Best places to visit are Malshej Ghat, Old Rajwada etc. Home-cooked food available at many resorts and lodges.”

8. Go Stargazing In Karjat


The city shares its region with the Bhor Ghat, Sahyadri, Western Ghats and the coastal plains of Konkan region near Deccan. Lying on the banks of River Ulhas in the foothills of Matheran, the hill station of Karjat has an average elevation of 194 m, making it ideal for stargazing. Stargazing together is deeply romantic, free and, in this over-digitised age of ours, delightfully disconnected – leaving you and your date free to reconnect with each other.

HolidayIQ Traveller Himanshu Mahajan from Karjat shares, “Many farm houses and residential colonies are situated here with all civil amenities and a municipal corporation. People from Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, Thane and Pune have second or weekend homes here and regularly celebrate festivals, new year parties, or weekend bash here. It is also popular for pleasure visits during the monsoon season.”

9. Plan A Date At A Music Concert


Concerts make you feel like you're part of something so much bigger than you. Being surrounded by people that are just as passionate about the music, you can listen to a song on your computer, or headphones, in your car or wherever but it will never feel the same as feeling the bass through your chest and watching your favorite song being sung live. The energy of the band/artist along with the crowd is infectious and in no time you’ll lose yourself, and if someone is willing to go through the trouble of finding and booking tickets and planning the dates perfectly, then it’s something that would be make you one of their favourite person in the world.

Water sports are available at Chondi Naka. Radisson hotel is a good place to stay. There are also private bungalows available for rent.”
