Our line of work constantly takes us to hotels and venues across the country. So naturally sometimes our clients ask for a recommendation for their team offsite or corporate event. The list below has been compiled to meet requirements of teams in and around Mumbai and Pune. While the list is comprehensive (and in no particular order!), it is by no means all of Mumbai and Pune’s options. Continue checking back for more lists in the future!
