Holi Weekend Getaways: Celebrate The Festival With Colours of Nature

Holi, one of the most colourful festivals in India, is around the corner. The very mention pops colours in your mind, doesn’t it? It was probably the only festival we celebrated in its truest essence last year before going into lockdown. This year, Holi marks a three-day holiday and we get it if you are checking destinations for the Holi weekend getaway. Given that we are still grappling with a pandemic, having safe celebrations is a must! Instead of celebrating with real colours, there’s a chance to ring in Holi 2021 safely within the colours of nature at beautiful private villas around the city.

The colours of spring are showing, but have you had the time to pause and observe? On this  Holi weekend getaway visit places encapsulated with natural greenery and its blooming colours. 

At SaffronStays Sanvina Farm, a private villa in Karjat you get to experience an authentic farm stay around 2000+ trees of fruits and vegetables. Every shade of green is a walk into these organic farms on a vast 10-acre estate. If there’s a seasonal bloom or ripe fruits, you get to closely observe the true colours of nature. So leave behind the colours and play with colourful flowers instead!

Another beautiful property like SaffronStays Green Acres, spells out its abundance of greenery. This 7-bedroom plush private villa in Alibaug is perfect for a celebration of a large group. Even showers in every room have a small garden next to them, so you’re well embraced in greens.

Splash Into The Blues of Water

Just being around water, be it a pool, lake or river feels refreshing in the scorching summer heat. Just like the colour blue which conveys calmness, spending your long weekend in our beautiful private villas around Mumbai will bestow similar emotions.

A sprawling 70-acre resort all to yourself, SaffronStays Foresta By The Lake in Kamshet is surrounded by water on three sides! And there’s so much to do here — you could go for a leisurely swim in the lake, play in the pool or take a picnic by the lakefront. Outdoor games on the multipurpose court or a variety of indoor ones, your Holi weekend getaway will not let you miss out on the colours! 

If you’re looking at closer options to spend your Holi weekend, like at private villas in Lonavala, then SaffronStays Serene Gardens is ideal for a friends and family getaway. This home is located about 5 mins away from the Indrayani river. Take a stroll by the riverside in the evening or trek up the hill to enjoy pleasing views of mountain valleys.

Capture The Reds and Tangerine Sunsets

A scene of sunrise and sunset puts on a colour palette that’s hard to define, but always enticing to capture on our phones. Leading busy lives, watching a sunset is barely on our routine, but places that put on a spectacular show of these daily events will make you appreciate them more.

Putting out the best display of nature’s colours is SaffronStays Horizon 360° in Mahabaleshwar with its strategic location and design. This private villa flaunts a 360-degree view of both sunrise and sunset, so you can watch the sky turn a canvas, painting you scenes with its brightest colours. 

To truly spend this festive long weekend just among your immediate family, escape to SaffronStays Mango Huts By The River in Pali. These earthy 2-bedroom cottages within mango plantations have little network accessibility. So you get the much-needed quality time for your famjam. Don’t forget to take your perfect family picture silhouette against the tangerine shades of the setting sun.
