It was the second weekend of June & rains had just started in Pune, that's when myself and my husband made a plan of visiting Mahabaleshwar and booked our luxury stay in Le Meridian Resort & Spa for 3 days.
We started on a Friday morning by 9.30am from Pune & drove towards Mumbai-Bangalore Highway and was bit sunny. As the roads were too good, we enjoyed the drive. Our first stop was at Mapro Gardens in Panchgani.
It’s a great place to start your Mahableshwar trip with a food court which serves excellent strawberry ice creams, sandwiches, hot/cold beverages and pizzas. You can also shop for a range of items like Strawberry chocolates, crush, jams, syrups and what not!! In about 20 mintue drive from Mapro Gardens we reached our destination- Le Meridien Mahableshwar Resort & Spa, which looked lavish & luxurious in the first look itself.
