Mumbai is a city that is ever bustling with activity. The city is forever moving and the fast paced life can often get a little mundane making us crave the lap of nature, a small vacation where we can unwind and connect with the self. Well, if you’re looking for a little dose of luxury along with your “weekend getaway”, the Soma vine village- Vineyard and Resort is what you need in your life.

Imagine lounging by the pool, basking in the sun, gulping wine and breathing in the fresh air of country side, can life get better than that?

How about some wine tasting, grape stomping, spa & a wine bath?!

Soma is an exquisite property, spread over 25 acres of land. The Soma Vine Village takes pride in providing the best quality of Indian wine and influencing the new-age Indian wine culture. Situated along the backwaters of Gangapur Dam and surrounded by the majestic Sahyadri Ranges, the country side flows naturally into a sight to behold.

This luxury resort will help you experience the best of Nashik’s countryside, the cool air, the natural beauty and most of all- wine. With 24 different kinds of home grown wines to offer and taste, the resort seems like something out of a grown-up’s fair tale.

Not only can you get a room here, soak in the infinite pool and enjoy great wine, you can also partake in fun activities including grape stomping, spa, sinking your feet in wine, and exploring the vineyards. Now, that is what we call a luxury!

What you can expect..

If you’re looking for a luxury “vacay”, some where you can take cute Instagram pictures, lounge in the sun, get a heavenly tan, drink a ton of wine and find yourself lost walking in the vineyard, Soma Vine Village is the place for you.

The resort is a 3 hour (depending on the traffic) drive away from Mumbai so can easily make it in and out of the place by the weekend. They even conduct small tours and wine tasting sessions, which you can sign up for (here) in under ₹350 if you aren’t looking for an expensive over-the-top vacation. If you are, go all in, book the room, get the wine soaking, enjoy the spa and lounge away in the sun. Rejuvenate and come back to the city as drunk and happy little being!
