Amboli

Spend quality time with your partner amidst the serene and pristine Amboli.

Mahabaleshwar

This small town located in the Sahyadri mountain range is surrounded by valleys on all sides and served as the summer capital of the then Bombay Province. The city provides the perfect scenic location; from valleys to observation points and gardens, making it perfect for those seeking a calm yet sight filled vacation. Take drool worthy pictures in the strawberry farms or indulge in sinful bingeing at the cheese factory.

Dabhol

If a vacation by the beach is your choice, then Dabhol beach is the ideal destination. Unlike other beaches in Maharashtra, this is a relatively unexplored destination.

Take a ferry boat from Dabhol and enjoy a subtle added experience. Don’t miss on the fresh caught fish, alphonso mangoes, coconuts and cashew that is seen here.
