Hobbes

Lavasa, Maharashtra, India (LAV003552)

Our speciality

Perched on a hilltop with amazing views of Lavasa lake and main city, Hobbes is the ideal holiday getaway for large families!

Detailed Description

Looking to escape the noise of the city and spend some quality time with your loved ones this weekend? This charming 4-bedroom villa in Lavasa (just a short drive from Mumbai/ Pune) is a great holiday retreat for neighboring city dwellers.

Designed for large family get-togethers or even a small reunion with your college buddies, Hobbes allows you to spend some much-needed quality time together away from the big city. Relax, unwind and let the picturesque backdrop of the mountains and charming lakeviews soothe you.

Savor the morning sunrise with a steaming cup of coffee out on the spacious deck. Or spend the day challenging your loved ones to a game of Monopoly or Housie in our comfy living room. Round up the kids - both young and old - for a smashing game of paintball down at XThrills (a gaming extravaganza complete with paintball, rappelling, rock-climbing and indoor golf). If you’d rather take in the sights, you could also rent cycles from XThrills and discover all that Lavasa has to offer on wheels.

Whether you’re looking for a relaxing vacation up in a hill station or an action-packed weekend of adventurous sports, Hobbes has something special to offer you!

P.S - If you’re travelling with a larger group, we have a twin villa right next door - Calvin - that guests can book.
