If you are heading to Nashik for a weekend stay, than the “Beyond-Sula” Resort is one of the most amazing places you must surely consider staying at.
Located at just 5 mins away from one the most popular vineyards in India – Sula Vineyards, the drive from the vineyard to the resort is a narrow road, which will makes you feel like you are driving along the countryside 🙂
On reaching the resort, we felt so peaceful – away from any sort of noise and with greenery all around. The entire resort is designed to give you a feel of staying in a vineyard. They have their rooms named after their wines. Our room was named ‘Zinfadel’.
We had booked the rooms facing the pool side and we were glad that selected those rooms. The view from these rooms is simply beautiful and fantastic.
The rooms in the resort are nice and huge, with a mini-bar and a balcony attached to each room. Our balcony was overlooking the beautiful pool and a small vineyard. The early morning view was just amazing with the silence of the environment and waking up to the twittering of the birds… and yes, not to forget the showers in the bathroom are simply the BEST , though we know we had to save water but once we went in the shower, we didn’t want to come out …. It was so so relaxing.
If your staying at the resort, you do get a complimentary pass for the vineyard tour and wine tasting at Sula. We spent almost the entire evening at the Sula vineyard. Make sure you get a nice front seating at the top deck as the place be’s a bit crowded due to lot of people flocking in to have the tasting session and to buy their wines. On the deck you can sip on some of the best wines and enjoy the appetizers while you watch the golden Sunset.
The Resort also has an all day dining restaurant “Cafe Rose”. We had our dinner here , it was an A la Carte and the food was good.We tried both the Italian and Indian cuisines and we loved it. The Breakfast buffet does have a variety but there are limited choices. They should certainly try and upgrade it.
One of the best parts of our stay at Beyond that we extremely fell in love with , was after having dinner, we decided to chill out in the pool very late at night sipping some wine in the pool, talking chatting and watching the stars. It just felt so romantic…. we fell in love with each other again.
