Weekend Getaway to Manasi Bungalow, Lonavala


Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a bit...Including yourself!
This has got to be one of the truest lines I've ever come across.

Juggling between a full-time job and blog work can sometimes get quite overwhelming. I found myself feeling extremely irritable and simply exhausted in the recent past. What I really needed was a break from it all and fortunately, that's exactly what I got - a warm invitation from Manasi Bungalow to spend a relaxed weekend with my dear ones.

A sprawling house in the lap of nature, Manasi Bungalow is a quaintly tucked away retreat near Valvan village. The first realization that dawns upon you, as you turn off the main road to head toward the property, is the peaceful surrounding. There's an instant sense of calm...The house itself has an extremely cultural and contemporary vibe. A spacious living room along with two bedrooms are equipped with all the modern amenities and yet retain a very vintage charm with the decor. I absolutely loved the attention to detailing right from the artefacts to the linen.

Our maximum time while at #HouseOfBlissLonavala was spent lazing around on the expansive lush green lawn! I feel like, today, the opportunity to spend time amidst so much greenery is such a luxury. And this beautiful property has a garden space extending on either sides of it. In fact, given the spaciousness, how I'd love to go back to this pet-friendly place with my best friend who has 3 adorable furry friends.
Lying on grass with friends, listening to music, away from the chaotic city life is literally the best feeling ever and we were so fortunate to have experienced those hours of calm. Nestled in a quiet corner, it is truly blissful how tranquil the property is. The only welcome distraction was either the chirping of birds or the spotting of a squirrel (that continues to excite me even after all these years).

A family of caretakers is always around to ensure cleanliness and offer help with anything one may need. Although we opted to order in for lunch and dinner from a local restaurant, you have the option of freshly-prepared home-cooked meals (at an added expense).

An extremely convenient location, Manasi Bungalow is that perfect go-to for when you're looking for a home away from home. For me, it was a much-needed break that allowed me to slow down and just take the time to enjoy the more old-school and simple pleasures of life. I can safely conclude I've found the ideal space for when my mind and body demand that pause button be hit. 💖

P.S. I feel like words cannot do justice to our beautiful experience. Scroll down to see the photo story I've put together. 
Hope you'll enjoyed going through this post. Until the next, lots of love - M!

  1. People who works there are some of the sweetest people I've met. Save yourself some time and just go there. Everyone at event space San Francisco is sweet and ask how you've been, even though normally staff keep their heads down.
