Go on a Private Trek – For couples who like to stay active, booking a private trek is the best combination of romance and fun. Get your privacy and gorgeous views of lush greenery and hills, and enjoy being outdoors together in the rains. You don’t need to exert yourself – there are many treks that are easy enough for you to enjoy together. Bhimashankar, Lohagad Fort, Sanjay Gandhi National Park, and Rajmachi are just some of the options.
Fly Over Mumbai – Have the buzzing city at your feet as you soar above it with your loved one in a small fixed-wing plane. Enjoy the romance of the moment and get swept away by the intoxicating sensation that comes with being above it all. Fall in love with the city again – this ride will give you memories to cherish forever.
Walking hand-in-hand – Take advantage of the many sea-side promenades in the city like Carter road, Bandra Bandstand, Worli Sea face, and Marine Drive. Or go to parks like the Hanging Gardens. Hold hands with your partner as you stroll along the well-paved pathways with beautiful views of the sea during the day or night. This is your chance to get to know them better, share your dreams, or just enjoy the feeling of togetherness.
Tranquil Stay in a Forest – Wake up to the sounds of nature and have your tea in your private balcony overlooking the green expanse as the rain gently pours down. Forest Village helps you clear your mind and takes you away from the chaos of daily life so you can concentrate on yourself and each other. Imagine the joy of walking on the soft grass bed, bare foot and the unforgettable high the oxygen-rich air can give you! Take the chance to rejuvenate your spirit, and reconnect with yourself and your loved ones.
Mould and Create Magic – Pottery might get messy but learning something new together is a sure-fire way to ignite some sparks. Movies have shown the sensual side of this craft and now it is your chance to recreate the magic. Transform your creativity into breathtaking creations as you get hands-on pottery training and enjoy the experience of moulding clay with your imagination.
Living in Glass Houses – Stay in a glass house that offers unobstructed views of the green expanse and the blue skies overhead. JenJon Holiday Homes offers unique apartments with glass walls so that you can experience the romance of the natural surroundings. There are also plenty of activities, both land and water-based to keep you entertained, and you can also ask them to arrange a romantic picnic on a small island for just the two of you. It cannot get more romantic than that!
A Tranquil Spa Day – With everyone’s hectic schedules, it is not easy to take time out to relax and reconnect with your partner. There might not even be enough time or energy to get out of the city for a day. Booking a spa day at a good spa takes care of all that problems. There are many spas in the city that offer full day relaxing packages for couples, starting from massages and sauna to beauty treatments. With your mind and body at peace, you get plenty of headspace to focus on your love.
Biking Around Town – On two wheels the air is fresher and the wind in your hair is refreshing. Whether you prefer the motorized bike or the pedalling variety, explore the city on 2 wheels. If you share common interests you can choose what you want to see or do and pick your route accordingly. If you prefer to lose yourself in nature, go to Aarey colony or SNGP; to get to know the city’s heritage try a route in Bandra or the Fort area; for the foodies there are plenty of options in Matunga, Colaba, and Juhu to name a few.
Long Drive in the Rains – Put on your favourite music to sing along to, pack a bunch of snacks, and head out on the open roads. The rains might get chaotic in the city, but on these roads it enhances the romance of the season. While Khandala and Lonavala might be obvious choices for a smooth drive, there are other less-trodden routes that give you the same pleasure. Tansa Dam and surrounding forests are just 100 km away; Bhandardhara with its waterfalls and lake offer awesome views; Karnala’s Bird Sanctuary and forests are a pleasure for nature lovers; and Malshej Ghat’s beauty is unmatched in the monsoons.
