I Visited This Beach Resort Just 2 Hours From Mumbai & It Reminded Me Of Goa

by Tania Tarafdar

After months of being locked within the four walls, my weeks started to feel repetitive and longer than usual. While I badly craved for a getaway, I knew that stepping out during the pandemic would not be without its risks. It was June, and I thought a road trip would not be a that bad idea after all. I decided to go on a drive towards Uran. As I checked the Google map for the route, I found that there was also a secluded beach resort called Hotel Uran Plaza. I packed up the car with good music, a few games, and a lot of snacks. I got behind the wheels only to discover this gem that reminded me of Goa.

The Serene Beach Escapade

After being glued to the screen for months, heading out in nature was an absolute delight. I was breathing in the fresh air, listening to nature, and having a good conversation with my partner. Besides, who can resist sinking into a hammock under an open sky? From shacks to comfortable seating lounges, the resort had it all. Backed by lush vegetation, this place is virtually deserted even on weekdays. Between the open space, and fresh air, I had a smile glued to my face while exploring the surroundings. What’s more, I witnessed that dramatic sunset overlooking the Arabian Sea.

The Heavenly Food

While I did carry a lot of snacks, I could not resist the menu which boasted of local and continental seafood dishes like Masala Prawns, Crab Bake and Lobster Thermidor. All the hygiene practices were in place, and I relished every bite of it. After the meal, I worked off those extra calories by taking a stroll on the beach. The property had exceeded all hygiene standards, and I could not be more carefree. Also, Kasar Khanaval Cafe At Kashid Beach Serves The Best Pomfret Fry.
