"Don’t be angry with the rain, it simply does not know how to fall upwards”, we still remember these words we had read somewhere, and for every reason whenever we think of it, it makes complete sense to us.

Monsoons teach us many things and for every individual, their reason to love this season differs.

For us it’s the cool climate, the smell of wet mud, hot coffee and obviously those long magical car journeys.

64 kilometers from Pune and 94 kilometers from Mumbai, lies this small town and hill station. Blessed with abundant green-lands and waterfalls, this place is a must visit during the rains. Lonavala has always been the 1st choice for Mumbaikars & Punekars. Throughout the year we see lakhs of people traveling to this famous hill station for a holiday. It is one of those places which stays lively throughout the year, and its road is arguably one of the most beautiful drives in India.

We are a working couple who are part-time bloggers. So, like many of us, we juggle and balance our love for travel & nature with our work. With work life becoming more burdensome day by day, traveling for leisure and taking a break from our hectic schedule has become a necessity.

Monsoons in Western India are absolutely magical. They are powerful, incessant, and they completely decorate The Sahyadri mountain range (Western Ghats) in lush greenery. Taking out this opportunity to relish nature and luxury, we decided make The Upper Deck Resort at Lonavala our abode for 2 days.

Reaching There

We booked a cab, and left early in the morning as we didn't want to miss the beautiful scenery which falls on the way. It is believed the roads during monsoons the roads here offer a pleasant scenic view. On the way, we halted for a quick breakfast to fuel up ourselves.

As much as we wanted to relax and stress out, we were equally excited to explore this beautiful resort which is on the highest peak and is believed to be built on the best location Lonavala. And guess what, it didn't disappoint us. As soon as we are approaching, the steep and curvy roads isolating from the town already started telling us how adorable this place is going to be. It took us less than 3 hours here.

Our room was spacious and was well equipped with all the modern amenities. The view from the balcony offered amazing sight of the hills, and the swimming pool. As soon as we opened the window, we had fog from the hills was entering our room. It was a spectacular sight. The hygiene and cleanliness maintained in the room was remarkable.
