If you’re the kind who likes to take off on a weekend, away from the hectic city hustle, then you are sure to find plenty of options at a few hours driving distance from Mumbai/Pune.

We had the urge of escaping our monotonous and hectic life and wanted to find ourselves a getaway which would be both affordable and also a peaceful place to visit. After all the research we found Rumours Sky Villa and Resort. We booked this place 3 days prior to our travel and were lucky enough to get it at a very cheap rate.

The room has a cozy rooftop bed with a good view of the hills, a perfect spot to see the sunset. They also have a pool, some board games and a few selective  books for your entertainment.

  • They provide a good Indian – Maharashtrian local breakfast option.
  • We highly recommend you to drive out to some of the popular dhaba’s in Lonavala – Sunny Da Dhaba or Kinara Da Dhaba. We drove up to Kinara, which has a very vibrant ambience with great options on their menu. It’s quite the Family Dinner option.
