Raanwaara is a lovely property 3 hrs from Mumbai but completely cut-off from the city. It's quiet, peaceful and perfect for a digital detox. The staff is polite and resourceful. We had an issue with the Ac and they were very prompt in identifying and fixing it. Food is decent; we preferred the regular Indian food to the Chinese cuisine. Good weekend break!...
