"Just living is not enough...one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower." this famous quote only teaches us to fly away from the hustle bustle of the city life. And for a person like me, who loves to weave songs in fresh air and run like a child on the soft grass, nature always has its way to call me. This time my journey around the Maharashtrian countryside was just a peaceful picture. It was not just a journey; I was heading towards a boutique villa in Lonavala, Maharashtra. The Arowana Villa nestled at a suitable place can be accessed by road from both Mumbai and Pune Airport easily.

Needless to say I was overwhelmed at the first glance after my arrival. Out of the four master bedrooms along with attached bathrooms, modular kitchen and dining hall, I lived in the biggest room. It was a pleasure to relax on the cosy bed and feel just like home. And to talk about food, there are absolutely no words to explain the delicious meal I had. I still remember the morning out in the open garden, enjoying my breakfast and a cup of hot tea. Nothing can get better than a delicious meal served with love before you.

The first thing I felt in The Arowana Hills was bliss. Why? Because the magnificence of the natural beauty around was a treat for your senses. There were times when I felt myself cut off from this fast life. The views around were mind-blowing which tempted me for yoga in the early morning when the first faint rays of the sun greeted me.

Nothing Like Homely Taste Of Food

Before reaching the villa I had high expectations regarding fooding, but my first-day dining experience exceeded my expectations. I did not know how to explain the delectable taste of the cooked foods. Just like a home-cooked food has a taste that lingers on your mouth, Arowana Villa has crushed my early belief that one cannot get freshly cooked homestyle foods at a rental villa. If there is one such place then The Arowana Villa is the name.

My road trip through the Maharashtrian countryside was fun-filled and a blessed journey. The more I was moving towards my destination the more I felt like running through an open field with trees on both ends and the sunrays smiling at me.

To me the best way to chill in the evening is a live barbeque. The tastes of the fiery delicacies are still raw on my memories that I can smell. And the last thing that needs mentioning was the campfire arranged by the villa management staffs. The glow of the campfire casting its warm light around was a spectacular experience that I ever had.
