Day by day as the mercury soars upwards, we ache to transport ourselves to cooler climes. But, given the uncertainty of our current pandemic situation, it is safe to say that long-distance travel should be avoided for good, at least for a while. However, you need not stay locked in within your concrete city walls, when you can safely make it to private villas and getaway homes in quaint locales. Safe family holidays in private pool villas around Mumbai or long staycations in Alibaug are some of the ways to ensure this looming lockdown phase can be tackled a little better with your close family by your side. With remote working facilitating workations, WiFi-equipped private pool villas that are serviced by trained, and tested caretakers promise to be the ultimate summer destination this season.
