Lonavala is a weekend getaway amidst nature and away from all the hustle and bustle of city life for all mumbaikars. 2 hours drive away from the concrete jungle (Mumbai) lies a lush green hill station with fresh air for lungs, greenery to soothe the eyes and peace for your soul. Monsoons have been the best time to visit this place.
Eating maggi, corn pakoda, and cheese pakoda from streets, roasted corn on the cob from thelas and vada pav with thecha and super spicy misal followed by the best of fudges and chikkis as dessert is a thing here. A good family hotel and satisfying homely meal becomes important for ppl travelling with families and not wanting to binge on fried street foods.
Girivihar Dining and Holiday club is nestled amidst greenery on all sides and provides a perfect home away from home at a very affordable price. For 2000 u can get a room for 2 with enough space for 4 to sleep in and all the basic amenities provided. The rooms are spacious and clean with comfortable beds, balconies that provide you a green view and well kept bathrooms. TV, side seating, side table, cupboard and everything is there in the room. The staff is friendly and caters to your every need. The place has swings and board games too.
The owner being a Gujarati, the place offers very homely pure vegetarian Gujarati food. Their heavy breakfast and piping hot phulka rotis for lunch here are not to be missed. There is an option of a la cartè or buffet to choose from at very affordable price.
Definitely a place worth booking for for a comfortable family budget stay with soul satisfying meals.
