Getaway To Tudor Retreat - Khapoli

Time to backpack again. During monsoon the entire Sahyadri ranges turns into an eclectic blend of fluorescent green mountains playing hide and seek with freely roaming clouds.Our destination was Tudor retreat farm, located by a lake near Khopoli off Mumbai-Pune Highway.The farm, spread on 10 acres of land, is surrounded on three sides by lush green forests and hills.

Getting out of mumbai is always tiring. We started off early evening & by the time we reached Tudor, it was 7 PM. Navigating to the place was again tough as there were no sign boards and despite of its huge spread,the place was poor lit. As if those were not sufficient - a real shock when I entered our bungalow. Arrangement within the rooms were clumsy and looked no better than any dharmasala.

I am a gourmet.If not the room decor, I had hoped that atleast the dinner would appease my discontentment.But all I had was again disappointment.

A moon walk along the banks of lake may seem enchanting - but strictly not advisable.The wall fencings were damaged and one of our colleague narrowly escaped getting drowned into the lake.

The saga continued till next morning when we found intermittent water supply in the bathroom.

The only area where Tudor could earn some good points was its breathtaking natural assets.The lake looked heavenly.And the surroundings appeared as if the mother nature has meticulously painted it with various shades of green.

Mrs Khan claims she runs this resort not for money.However I would question - can you run a resort so unprofessionally ? I am sure the answer will be a big NO !

Looks like a beautiful spot but awfully shabby. Why is it called 'Tudor retreat'?
