Spread over 25,000 acres of land, it covers 65Km of lakefront that gives the whole city a mesmerising look.
How To Reach Lavasa
Lavasa, being an emerging & planned tourist hotspot, is well connected to the rest of India via roadways. Regular bus and taxi services are available for the city of Lavasa. There is, however, no direct train or flight connectivity to Lavasa. Lonavala, 29 km away fro this city is the nearest railway station. Pune Airport, 67.9 km from Lavasa, is the nearest airport that serves the city of Lavasa. Moreover, since Lavasa is still approximately 45km away from the main Pune city, having your own transport options would be the best. You can use a car for hire service or take your own car here. Lavasa is located along the road to the famous Mulshi Dam and hence, the road conditions are quite suitable for bike or car drive. The way is adequately marked with direction signposts and since the planned township is well-known, you can also ask around.

Last week visited.. They have stopped the project. Nothing is there, no proper maintenance. I will not suggest anyone to visit Lavasa. Waste for your money. We came out with disappointment.

much hyped Lavasa City is only as good as a couple of hours of Sightseeing, nothing more. The place is overly priced, everything is expensive. You can just stroll around for a couple of hours. The only attraction seems to be the drive along the mountain stretch and the Lake. Though the place is advertised as a retired / senior citizen stay, I failed to see the basic amenities that an aged person would get there. Not recommended as a tourist place, may be enjoyed only for the pleasure of driving and sightseeing for a couple of hours.
