Trip to Alibaug

Monday, November 28th, 2011

We had a fun-filled and exciting weekend at Alibaug (12-13 Nov). It was a clubbed visit..firstly it was to attend a colleague’s wedding at Varsoli (Alibaug) and as the wedding venue was such a great weekend getaway for Mumbai people, we planned an overnight stay at one of the renowned resorts (Paradise Resorts, Mandwa).

We started off from Gate way of India to Alibaug through one of the regular ferry services. This is a good and quicker option to reach Alibaug. Travelling by ferry was awesome; on the way to Mandwa we could see lots of ships, speed boats and birds.

After reaching Mandwa jetty, we reached Alibaug to attend our colleague wedding at Parnakuti Resort, Varsoli village. The whole team enjoyed at the wedding and had a sumptuous lunch there. After greeting the blessed couple, we left for the other exciting part of our weekend fun.

On reaching the resort and after a small rest, we were all ready for fun in the swimming pool. After a long session in the pool, we were offered evening snacks. In the evening, we had lot of fun in team activities. Next came the dinner which was also quite filling.

Next morning, we all got up early to dive in the pool again along with some games in the pool itself (Nobody actually wanted to get out of the pool!!!). We also explored the places around the resort especially the river side. After having lunch and some rest, we started off for Mandawa jetty to catch a return ferry in the evening. The return journey was equivalently exciting.

We reached Colaba in an hour and along with the journey we took along beautiful memories of the weekend trip with the team.

It was one of the best times that we had with our group in Alibaug. I am sure no one would disagree. Hope we plan such exciting trip soon!!!
