Banyan Bliss was conceived as a creator of memories for the future generation. It came from a deep desire to let urban kids experience the joys and challenges of living and growing up in a country side.
Welcome to our home Banyan Bliss. Situated off the Mumbai Pune Expressway, just 3 kms from the Khalapur toll exit and 17 kms from #Imagica on a motorable road and, for a short distance, a road less traveled through paddy fields, you chance upon our homestead Banyan Bliss.
Set on top of a hill with the meandering Amba River not far below, the homestead offers a 360 degree view of mountains all around including Lonavala and Amby Valley. The terrain becomes alive in the monsoons with the view punctuated with waterfalls each more ferocious than the next.
What makes Banyan Bliss all the more special is that it reflects the personal journey of two like minded souls, Beena and Viinod Nair. In its organic garden and vermicompost pit , its conservation of rain water, its indigenous drip irrigation system, its ethnic style architecture, its earth walls and step construction design across different levels and its quaint nooks and turns
All this while retaining the warmth and ambiance of a rural wada, with its Aangan and Bhramasthan. Not to forget the comforts of an urban home replete with western commodes and showers. For those who wish to bathe in the outdoors feel free to use our open roof showers.
What makes the homestead even more unique is its evolution from around its central core - a large, very, very old Banyan Tree whose expanse of branches afford a vast area of shade, right next to which is a Lotus pond with “guppy” fish that co-exist in its serenity.
Just nearby are two cashew trees, under the shade of which is a camping ground for you to pitch your tent and enjoy the adventure of the great outdoors with the comfort of modern amenities.
Camping Tents at Banyan Bliss - Camping with children can bring you back to the simplicity of nature. It increases your awareness of your surroundings and can refresh your appreciation for the many things that so often go unnoticed. Many things are learned and experienced for the first time during each day in the life of a child. Patience is almost unavoidable. It is so important to take the time to enjoy the journey of these new experiences with your child. In nature there are so many amazing things to discover.
Trek Up the Mountain - At Banyan Bliss, there is a lot to enjoy for families and friends. From leisurely strolls across endless acres of safe and idyllic forest trails, to rustic village walks, or a bullock cart ride to a dip in the Amba river, or sleeping under a charpoy or in tents at night gazing at the stars above, to treks of your choice either up the mountain to the local village deity 900 feet above mean sea level or trying your luck at fishing deep in in the forest in a valley from where the mountain streams begin or a walk across the mountain to either Bushi Dam, Amby Valley or even Lonavala.
Banyan Bliss - your destination to rediscover the joys of rustic outdoor living for children who may never experience it or adults who yearn to re-live those childhood memories of holidays spent at their ancestral home
