Me and my husband have been struggling forever to match our schedules and go on a nice quick holiday. But everytime I google "Getaways around Pune", I get long even-numbered lists of places in Maharashtra over a 100kms. Other places take like six hours to reach, one-way. But we are not really in a mood for that, so we started making a list of sorts, of places we would like to go to - and we have been cutting things off the list ever since. We explore. We chill. And catch up. Don't get me wrong, we are not the sort of people who love being indoors. But we don't share the same holidays and sometimes, we like to get away (but not too away) and enjoy each others company amidst nature!
So if you are one of those people who like doing nothing in particular and enjoying the "hotel" part of the vacation, this list would be perfect for you! We have been to most of the places on the list, but not all of them. This is just a compilation of my research (and the photos are from their respective websites)
A little tip we live by: Avoid travelling on a weekend. Most of the hotels and resorts have a cheaper rate on the weekdays, than on the weekends. Take a day off from work once in a while, get yourself pampered, rejuvenate!
