I am sure you all would agree with me that every now and again you need to escape from your every day life to break free from the daily rut because if you don’t have some proper downtime you’re going to burnout.

Well to be honest that’s exactly what happened to me and that’s when I decided to hit the road with my girls straight from Mumbai to Lavasa for my #BirthdayGetaway.

LAVASA- “The City of Dreams”

For those of you who must be wondering where is Lavasa; let me tell you that this beautiful city is situated at a distance of just 40 miles, or 90 minutes from the heart of Pune.

Lavasa is free India’s first Hill city being developed by HCC. Based on principles of New Urbanism Designed under the concept of Life in Full i.e. ‘Live , Work , Learn and Play’ in harmony with nature.
This beautiful place brings together all the components essential to daily life in a more organized fashion giving it a feel of a contemporary city.

Believe it or not this city is truly magical and transports you into a different world altogether.

It is not just an ideal holiday destination but also an apt wedding destination 🙂

Have a look at all the highlights of my stay at Mercure Lavasa and see it for yourself :


Mercure, Lavasa


Mercure Lavasa by Accor Group

One of the most beautiful resorts that I have been to in recent times. The resort is located in a scenic valley at Warasgoan, surrounded by mountains.  This peaceful getaway destination is easily accessible and positioned 2km from the Lavasa International Convention Centre.

The ambience and the location is beyond amazing, as well as the food. But by far the best part about the hotel is the service they give you, it is truly value for money.  It will exceed every expectation you have; from an in – house Ladies Night , a grand spread of the buffet to water sports to a state of the art convention centre; this hill station, so to speak is one such place  you surely wouldn’t mind being stranded on.

> From Basic necessities to the most luxurious elements – LAVASA has it all.

As far as the splendour is concerned, I can’t deny that Accor Group had a big part to play in it.  Especially the marketing head Khushbu and Mr Sachin the manager on board; they made sure that we have the best rooms with the most spectacular views.

Considering I was staying at Mercure I loved every bit of the special treatment that was extended to us at their in house restaurant/coffee shop, “Celebrations”.  From their à la carte menu to the special features such as themed buffet spread, live cooking counters to lavish  breakfast at  their al fresco dining area, it was truly worth it!

Quaint Popular Cafes

Granma's Homemade

Granma’s Homemade

Much to my surprise I came across some really popular and quaint eateries such as All American Diners, which in my opinion is one of the best places for breakfast. On the other hand we ate at places like Chor Bizarre that served typical mughlai cusine and a quaint bakery called Granma’s Homemade patisserie; which is a must visit for those with a sweet tooth.
