Aamby Valley is a beautiful man-made creation near Mumbai that is bound to mesmerise you. It is known to be India’s best-planned city and has been a trendsetter in urban planning & environmental/landscape design.

I spent 3 blissful days at the valley. I checked in at the Aussie Room at Aamby Valley City after a lovely 3-hour drive from Mumbai. Soon after settling down, I visited the Town Plaza for lunch at Manuhaar. Of course, a holiday with great food is a must and even better when it's an amazing unlimited Thali with Gujarati and Marwadi delicacies.

I had one of the best luxury cruise experiences at the lake-side, it was nature at its very best. I felt like I am in a different world far away from the maddening crowd and how proximity to nature makes you feel at peace with yourself.

Next morning,I started the day early with breakfast at Woodpecker, a warm and bright all day international cuisine restaurant. After a lovely breakfast, I went to the Adventure Park. I had an awesome time experiencing Jungle Safari, Zorbing and Zip line. Then I took a car tour of the resort and I tried my hand at golf as a learner at the course.

Later, I stopped by the Banaras Ghat. This traditional and enchanting temple is one of the most beautiful locations for a fairy tale wedding set up. I wish I had known about it sooner!

The next day, I spent some time Horse Riding along the lake-side, it was amazing and my horse, Arjun had unbelievably shiny white skin that glittered in the sun. For lunch, I chose to dine at Curry Coast, a coastal cuisine restaurant serving amazing vegetarian choices along with seafood delicacies. The servers were dressed in traditional South Indian clothes. I loved the food especially the tomato soup, chilli pepper paniyaram, tamarind rice, appam and coconut curry.

Aamby Valley was an overwhelming experience and has given me memories of a lifetime. I highly recommend it if a serene, tranquil and peaceful experience is what you are looking for!
