WEEK END HOTELS NEAR MUMBAI & PUNE

Thank you for choosing Gagangiri Tours and Travels for your weekend getaway near Mumbai and Pune. Our team of experts is excited to assist you in finding the perfect accommodation and exploring the beautiful destinations near Mumbai & Pune. From beach destinations to hill stations and nature trails, we have it all covered. Let us help you make your trip to Maharashtra unforgettable! 

NEAR MUMBAI WEEK END OPTIONS

Mumbai's distinctive geography, as an island city situated off the West coast plains and flanked by the Western Ghats, Thane district, Navi Mumbai, and Alibaug, presents an array of possibilities for weekend excursions or day trips. The region boasts a diverse range of accommodations, from budget-friendly to high-end, ensuring that there is something to suit every preference.

If you're a beach lover, Gorai, Arnala, Marve, Dahanu, Kihim, Alibaug, Kashid, and Daman are great options to explore. On the other hand, if you're more of a mountain person, Lonavala, Khandala, Igatpuri, Malshej Ghat, and Matheran are some good ones to consider. Matheran a personal favorite as it has a good forest cover that keeps it cooler even in peak summers. Malshej Ghat is relatively unexplored and offers great vistas and a serene environment, while Igatpuri and surrounding places are also wonderful. However, Lonavala can be a bit too commercial and crowded.

If you're a nature lover, you might want to explore Karnala bird sanctuary or Yeoor, which is the eastern exit of Sanjay Gandhi National Park. Another option is Tungareshwar Sanctuary. You can also plan a day trip to Sanjay National Park with access from Borivali.

Thank you for sharing your interests! Mumbai indeed has a lot to offer for those who love archeology architecture. The Kanheri caves, Mahakali Caves, and Elephanta Caves are definitely worth visiting. Additionally, the South Bombay or Fort area is a marvel of Anglo-Indian architecture. During the monsoon season, there are also several waterfalls and hill trek options available. And if you're looking for some leisure and rejuvenation, there are several resorts located on the outskirts of Mumbai with water games and rides.
