A green getaway- U Tropicana ALibaug

A green getaway- U Tropicana ALibaug

All that I was looking for on the last weekend, was a complete opposite of my daily routine; a place where I could just relax and rejuvenate. After cancelling out on the usual Lonavala, Khandala and Matheran, I decided to choose Alibaug this time.

With many recommendations and suggestions from friends and the fact that it is just about 2 hours away from Mumbai, Alibaug seemed like a good option. What added to the excitement was a picturesque abode amidst greenery and landscaped gardens.

Spread over twelve acres and just three kilometers from the serene Kihim Beach is U Tropicana. Ideally located just about 20 minutes away from the Mandwa jetty, the resort certainly aims at offering its guests a secluded setting to relax and unwind.

Your first look at the resort will show you greenery till as far as your eyes can see. As you enter your room and go about your day, you realize the peace and seclusion that the place offers.

With its contemporary rooms and suites that carry a flavour of local influences and U’s unique concept of service, the resort is an ideal choice for leisure travellers.

The resort offers an all day dining restaurant, lounge bar, spa, fitness centre and a library for the avid readers. For the foodies, the resort has a good spread with a choice of Indian, Italian and Chinese cuisines. And if you’d like to burn those calories, the resort has a well maintained pool for a quick dip.

Although you wouldn’t want to leave the quiet at the resort and step out, if at all you do, the local market is not too far away. And for those of you who’d like to see places around, you can even pick up cycles from the resort and travel around. For the water babies, the Nagaon beach close by should be your destination.

If you’re not a fan of the waters, you can always spend a lazy evening sipping some Masala chai in your balcony as you gaze at the mountains around. You might even have a kitten or two for company!

Evenings at the resort are chilled and the place comes alive with many lights and music. The bar located right at the centre of the main garden is gorgeous. The designs and choice of lighting reflect a unique blend of local heritage and modern design.
