Summer Holiday in Mumbai | The Retreat Hotel

Summer Holiday in Mumbai

Mumbai in summer is a vibrant tapestry of experiences. It's the soft caress of the sea breeze at Juhu Beach, the electrifying energy of a Bollywood concert, and the delightful chaos of street food markets. It's a city that sizzles with life, both literally and figuratively.

Historical Must-Visit

Mumbai wakes up with the rising sun, and so should you! Kickstart your Mumbai summer vacation with a historical tour. Explore the iconic Gateway of India, a majestic arch overlooking the Arabian Sea. Elephanta Caves, carved out of basalt rock centuries ago, offer a glimpse into India's rich artistic heritage. For the history buff, immersing yourself in the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya, formerly known as the Prince of Wales Museum, is a must.

Shopping and Adventure

Venture into the bustling Crawford Market, a sensory overload of spices, fabrics, and fresh produce. Don't forget to bargain - it's all part of the fun! For the adventurous soul, Sanjay Gandhi National Park offers a welcome respite. Hike through lush forests, explore the fascinating Kanheri Caves, or take a boat ride on the serene Powai Lake. Juhu Beach and Versova Beach are also popular spots for their lively atmosphere and street food stalls. In the evening, take a stroll along Marine Drive, as the city lights shimmer on the Arabian Sea.

Mumbai After Dark

Mumbai is a city that never sleeps and its nightlife is, needless to say, legendary. From chic rooftop bars to lively nightclubs, the city comes alive after dark. Catch a live music performance at a trendy rooftop bar, or lose yourself in the pulsating rhythm of a Bollywood club. For a more laid-back experience, head to a local pub and soak in the friendly atmosphere.

Must-Try Local Cuisine

No summer vacation in Mumbai is complete without a deep dive into its phenomenal food scene. Mumbaikars take immense pride in their street food, and rightly so! From the melt-in-your-mouth Vada Pav, a potato patty encased in a crispy bun, to the iconic Pav Bhaji, a vegetable curry served with buttered buns, Mumbai's street food is a symphony of flavours. Don't miss the chance to savour Misal Pav, a sprouted lentil curry served with bread.
