The East India House, Uttan.

You don&rsquot have to go far from the conveniences of Mumbai city to get away from its busy life. Here are five properties you can spend your weekend at. 

Nestled in nature, the East India House resort is only half-hour from the city but seems away from it once you get here. In its serene surroundings, the most you will hear is the birds chirping. Book your choice of rooms, be it the upper deck rooms with balconies that overlook the infinity pool or the lower deck rooms with balcaos surrounded by the Lilly pool you will remain in the midst of nature. Enjoy lip-smacking East Indian delicacies curated for you by an assortment of chefs and home bakers. Get some exercise by cycling around the area or going on nature or mountain biking trails. Or stay in and attend a pottery workshop or two. 

Charming yet modern, the Mango Beach House is a boutique residence that doesn&rsquot compromise on the amenities that you expect when on vacation. Lounge by the pool, enjoy the verdant gardens or take a walk on the beach, and then get on to sampling the delectable cuisine in the form of authentic coastal curries and succulent tandoori treats. Simple classic dishes are prepared with organic ingredients, and only cold-pressed oil extracted from organic seeds and rock salt is used.

Tanmay Getaways, Mulshi  

To go to Tanmay Getaways, you don&rsquot have to leave your precious pet behind in Mumbai. The hotel welcomes your four-legged companions. The villa overlooks Mulshi Lake and has an infinity pool, two bedrooms, a spacious living room, and sprawling gardens. If you wish to cook, you have at your disposal a fully-equipped kitchen. However, you can take it easy and request a home-cooked meal. Try the Malvan fish curry, mutton fry, and sabudana khichdi from their menu. 

About 45 minutes from Pune city limits, Over Water is a private getaway conceived by Arathi Parigi, an architect and storyteller who spent several years of her childhood here. The homestay has been designed by architect Shabbir Unwala, and it is ideal for those who lead hectic lives, are short on time, but still want to get away for a while, in style, but not too far away.

Wake up to birdsong, a visual of lotuses in a pond, the feel of grass beneath your feet, and the fragrance of greens surrounded by fresh water. At Jalsrushti, the island resort by the Swara group of hotels, your experience will be one of a kind. Located on the banks of the river Mula, the hotel also offers horse riding, bicycling, and tractor rides as your holiday entertainment
