10 Top Private Romantic Getaways Around Maharashtra

“Travel brings power and love back into your life.”

― Rumi Jalalud-Din

Commitments are hard to make, but even harder to keep. Whether one has made them for a lifetime or for a short while, showing how much you mean to each other takes time, effort, walking the extra mile and a willingness to carve out special moments. Perhaps this is what Rumi meant when he added travel to the mix. While love and fun make up for the romance, it is only travel that makes two people stick together through thick and thin, reducing distances and creating memories that last.

Travelling alone is a revelation of oneself, traveling together reveals life. Unlike the usual look-a-like hotels and resorts that you keep dragging your loved one to, why not do it differently this time? Ever thought of a private villa that has gorgeous views, is sanitised and safe and yet gives you all the privacy you seek not too far from Mumbai or Pune?

Besides being secluded with fabulous views, a place to yourself and no disturbance, these romantic weekend getaways around Maharashtra are all unique in their experiences, offering you a holiday you’ll rave about long after you go home.
