Smack in the heart of Pune’s vibrant hustle and bustle, the Vivanta by Taj Blue Diamond is a restful retreat with superlative service. With its striking cantilevered entrance, glass-fronted lobby and sweeping terraces, this 109-room modernist stay is flooded with natural light. The guestrooms are decked out with wooden floors, plush leather headboards, and Art Deco–style furniture. For added space book a Luxury Bliss Suite, which offers extras like a sauna, a separate living room and free wine on arrival. The bathrooms have chrome fittings, large bathtubs and walk-in rain showers, and are stocked with Forest Essentials beauty products. Choose from four on-site restaurants: classic Indian fare and poolside sundowners at Latitude, local Peshwai cuisine and live ghazal music at Mystic Masala, tasty Chinese delicacies and dainty desserts at Whispering Bamboo, and killer cocktails (try the Blue Moon Martini) and continental-style bites at the Easy bar. For a dash of glamour, book a private dining experience with Chef Pintu. And don’t leave without indulging in a treatment at the Jiva Spa; the Champi Indian head massage is extremely relaxing.
In the Area
For a slice of local history, head to the sumptuous Aga Khan Palace. Set on 19 acres of manicured grounds, this grand 19th-century building served as a prison for Mahatma Gandhi and his wife Kasturba. Many of their household items are on display. Nature lovers need look no farther than Katraj Snake Park, on the southern outskirts of the city. Don’t miss the park’s prize possession: a six-year-old, nine-foot king cobra. For unmatched views of the valley in which Pune lies, head 15 miles south to Sinhagad Fort, an ancient fortress perched on an isolated mountainside.
