Are you tired of the same old mini vacation to Matheran, Lonavala, and Mahabaleshwar? Well this post is for everyone who’s trying to explore new place, I found out a new place in and around Maharashtra hidden in the hills of Kalasgiri named Tala.
I stayed at Forest Hills, Tala which is a luxury property hidden and surrounded by beautiful and mesmerizing valleys and river views. It is approximately 26 kms from Roha. The property is filled with scenic views, breathtaking spots and activities to keep you engaged.
From waking up in a real tree house to going for high tea at sunset point was one of my fave past time. I stayed there for two days and did all activities which were Atv bike rides to petting in the zoo and strolling through organic farms to spending leisure time by the pool. The best part about Forest Hills, Tala is that they have a huge property to explore so you don’t need to move out of your hotel because it’s built up in such a way.
From breakfast to lunch to high tea and dinner everything is just so perfect. The food is mouth watering especially for vegetarians. The hospitality and service are quick and is built on a mountain they provide you with transport within the property.
A special mention about the food and to Chef Pranav for the amazing delicacies that he curated in the menu.
How to Reach Forest Hills Tala
There are many ways to reach the property. You can hire a cab, can opt for train or bus. You can also take a ferry from Colaba and get off at Mandva and take a cab from their or you can take a train from Panvel which drops you at Roha station. P.S these are memu trains so please check the M-Indicator or at the counter while booking the train tickets.
I opted for the bus because it was the fastest and closest for me. The bus stop was Borivali East (Nancy colony) You can get a booking done in prior. The first bus that leaves for Roha is at around 5 AM in the morning which dropped us off at 10.20 AM. That same bus goes up to Tala but we got off at Roha as Forest Hills team had sent us a car for the pickup. From Roha bus stop to the property is approximately 45mins in the cab.
