All of us look forward to a new year with excitement and fervor. And the excitement only manifolds when the New Year is also a long weekend! For those of you who still haven’t checked your calendars, the 1st of January, 2018 falls on a Monday. If you are like me, you have already made your travel plans to kickstart the New Year. And if you haven’t, fret not because one of the best perks of living in Mumbai is you are never very far from quick getaways from the city.
Whether you are looking for a wild party with your crazy bunch of friends or some quite family time, there are a number of weekend getaways near Mumbai that you can head over to. You can choose from hill stations like Matheran and Lonavla which attract a lot of tourists at this time of the year. If you are more of a beach side person, you can take a jetty or drive down to the coastal town of Alibaug to spend your new year. All of these places host New Year parties and celebrations that are organized by various resorts and hotels and they promise you a great time.
There are many resorts near Mumbai that offer exclusive deals on food, drinks, accommodation and all-night parties specially for New Year’s Eve. They also include live DJ and Bollywood and karaoke nights that go on well past midnight to ring in the year. You get unlimited drinks and music to groove to with your friends.
For people looking to end the year on a more quieter note, there are a bunch of Mumbai resorts you can book at reasonable prices where you can spend the weekend chilling out near a pool with you family. These resorts not only offer a great ambience to relax but also provide you with in-house chef services and banquets to satiate your gastronomical senses. They even organize board games and a host of other activities that ensure that you have a great time with your loved ones. These are great options if you are looking for some good value for money places.
It is always a great idea to end the old year by letting go of old habits and inhibitions and beginning the new year with new hopes and stronger resolutions. And what can be a better resolution than the resolution to continue travelling, exploring and loving people around you.
