This trip was strictly was leisure purpose, all I wanted was relaxation and some me time. Hence, Brightland Resort seemed the way out. We had booked a pool-side Superior for a day and it was just amazing, the view, the food, and they also have other planned activities like hiking, cycling, movie night, Housie and also Live music.

The amount of food I had during my stay in Mahablaehwar is what i usually eat in 3 days. But it was great fun to not go hopping to all the places, for once and just eat and chill!

Mahabaleshwar is 3- hour drive from Pune. It's closest you can get to serenity (If you aren't a beach lover). Driving down to Mahabaleshwar is great as the roads are pothole-free and beautiful.
