It’s common knowledge that every metropolitan city is struggling with its Air Quality Index (AQI). It is a major cause of concern as pollution levels are at the peak. And that means that every single breath that you take is in some way or the other harmful for you. Delhi always bears the brunt of pollution but Mumbai isn’t too far behind. It’s like being stuck in a gas chamber and the only way to get some respite is by driving as far away from the city as you can. Thankfully for us Mumbaikars, we have plenty of options when it comes to seeking some green cover. And one of the prime locations that aren’t too far away from the city is the lush green town of Igatpuri. Known to have pleasant weather all year round, Igatpuri lights up during the monsoon when it pours here. If you are looking to escape from the madness and pollution of the city then Igatpuri is worthy of taking into account. And we have found just the place for you to kick back in.
Away From The Madness Of The City At O Two Villas, Igatpuri
Igatpuri is a haven for beautiful resorts and the O Two Villas happen to be one of the most frequented ones. It’s almost hard to believe that this serene location is located just 2.5 hours away from the city. A modern property right in the middle of all the greenery, it’s a delight to just be here and be away from the hustle-bustle of the city. It’s a collection of villas and each of them overlooks the Sahyadri Range. Just imagine yourself waking up to the sun rays lighting up your room and hearing the birds chirping outside your window. Way better than waking up to the sound of car horns honking outside your window, right?
It’s not just the view outside that is great. The villas themselves are a sight to behold. Namely, O2, Infinity, Fantasy and Royale, each of the villas come with a capacity of roughly 10-15 people and with their own swimming pools! What’s better than starting the day or ending night lounging by the pool or swimming around in the deliciously cool waters? Ideal for a bunch of people who are looking to party in a private setting, each of the villas has mood lighting to get that discotheque lighting going. And all of this comes with a caretaker, food on call and a kitchen for yourself if you feel like cooking up a storm. I’d say that it’s a pretty sweet deal!
Even if you aren’t planning on having a rager, this is still one of the best places to let loose, breathe and take in the beauty of nature. The gardens surrounding the villas are well-manicured and make for a pleasant sight when you are out there sipping on your coffee and admiring the view.
The next time the city gets you down, you know where to head.
