Manas is situated in the quaint hill-station of Igatpuri, which was a favored destination of the British as well. Today, we’re proud to say that it is the best resort near Mumbai to make the most of your monsoon vacation. Igatpuri is surrounded by the highest peaks in the Western ghats, and receives the most rainfall in Maharashtra. No wonder then, that this foggy hill-station’s healing and mystical properties led to the establishment of the largest Vipassana meditation center in the world in Igatpuri.
Booking a suite at Manas is the first step towards doing your monsoon vacation right, as it’s the perfect resort for families and couples alike. Privacy is the operative word here, as the resort encompasses an area of 7 acres. We’re at a short accessible distance to the vineyards of Maharashtra, the Vipassana meditation center, mesmerizing hikes and treks, and to the divine temples of Shirdi.
Owned and operated with love by a nature-loving family, Manas is also Maharashtra’s first pet-friendly resort. All our rooms are entirely pet-friendly, and while we may charge you, be rest assured that your pet’s stay and food is 100% complementary. If you don’t own a pet, you can always spend time with our child friendly animals, ranging from exotic birds to service dogs, all eagerly awaiting your visit, and are sure to make your stay fun-filled and therapeutic!
Our high-ceiling suites feature comfy, rustic interiors, fresh flowers, and bounce-worthy beds. Wake up to the chirping of birds and the perfect foggy sunrise and follow it up with a combination of outdoor yoga, swimming, pet therapy, and hikes in and around the Sahyadri ranges. Soothe your sore muscles with deliciously pampering Ayurvedic spa treatments, and you’ll leave feeling like a million bucks.
At Manas, we’ve captured the very essence of monsoon at Igatpuri, combining the most comfortable amenities with the warmest hospitality, and enabling our guests to experience nature at its inherent best. We welcome you here, come share our magical lives with us. It’s a perfect family weekend getaway near Mumbai.
