Spa in Style
The Karvi Spa in Davsino Country Club have 11 therapy rooms and you can get rejuvenated with fantastic spa massages. A relaxing weekend guaranteed !
My suggestion is to try rappelling, rock climbing, paint ball …. at the Xthrill Adventure Academy.
Or if you just want to relax with your love then just forget everything and enjoy Pontoon boat rides on the lake.
Its not like Matheran, but still you can explore here with nature walks around … get to feel the greenery .. birds … flowers .. be nature fresh.
If you wish to be educative ! and also want to buy some art crafts … then do visit Bamboosa Bamboo Factory. Get some bamboo wall clocks, lamp shades, furniture and showpieces.
And last but not the least is the street plays on Saturday (first and second of every month).
its amazing …. Do experience this beautiful city ….
More ever I loved the night views of this city than the day time 🙂
