Guide for booking hotels in Matheran:
The hill station is just 100 kilometres from Mumbai, and its proximity to many other metropolitan cities makes it a weekend getaway for urban residents. It is one of the very few places in the world that do not allow any vehicles at all, and the best way to get around is by foot or a hand-pulled rickshaw. The actual magic of Matheran is experienced while staying in the cottages set up amid lush greenery and quaint hills.
Colonial architectural style villas and cottages in the Matheran forest are perfect for staying if you are travelling in large groups. The cottages and villas feature great ambience, homely amenities, warm hospitality and delicious Maharashtrian food. Additionally, they are close to the viewpoints that offer sweeping views of the mountains, the sunrise, sunset, and everything in between and are great choices if you want to indulge in trekking. Karjat Road and Old Khandala Road are lined with top-end hotels and resorts ideal for a soothing getaway. Situated amidst the Sahyadri range along with a commanding view of dense green forests, the properties offer outstanding amenities, excellent hospitality and indoor and outdoor activities. Moreover, since the properties are far from Matheran town centre, you can reach them only through private vehicles. Plus, staying in one of these hotels and resorts allows you to extend your vacation with a visit to Khandala, an hour's drive from Matheran.
