As i mentioned in the previous blog post about various resorts in Mumbai, Elysium Estates in Apta is a great weekend getaway for large groups of approx 40 ppl.
The closest railway station is Apte/Apta which is exactly opp the station, you step out and get into elysium estates that convenient.
As we were a large group we booked an ac bus from dadar to the resort.
Since one of our friends had already been there, we already had a good review. So here is my own personal take on this lovely weekend getaway.
We left on a Saturday afternoon and checked out on Sunday eve.
About the property.
Sprawling across 6 to 7 acres of land, this property has AC rooms, a dining/bar area that also provides karaoke, outdoor pools, a huge lawn area with volleyball and throwball nets, access to play football and telegames, a pool table, table tennis board, carrom board and many other outdoor and indoor games available.
The resort is alongside a river, with lovely wild lotuses. It has an inhouse Kitchen that prepares delicious food but preferences have to be given in advance, On arrival tea and snacks were provided. Later at night a BBQ was arranged with veg (cauliflower/baby corn) and non veg options(chicken and prawns).
The rooms were very spacious and easily accomodated 3 in a room.
From breakfast the next day to Lunch everything was so well organised and they were on time.
You can take a dip in the pool, walk around the property or simply sit by the river and enjoy the serenity.
A new property is adjacent to this big one, which also has rooms and a pool and its more for smaller groups.
The whole vibe from this place just makes u feel relaxed, and u can enjoy every minute at leisure at the pace you wish to.
