Citrus Chambers - Mahabaleshwar, Maharashtra INDIA

A friend in Udaipur recommended Mahabaleshwar, a hill station popular with urban dwellers in nearby Pune and Mumbai. We were coming from nearby (fabulous!) Aurangabad. We seemed to be the only foreigners in town. It’s a very charming, provincial strawberry growing region. But charming is not a word we use to describe our hotel. While a large room and conveniently located walking distance to downtown walking streets, the entire property needed a makeover. The dilapidated pool pic at the top of the page is from this property. Need we say more?! Oh, and they spray DDT openly to control the tiniest of bugs! Absolute paradise…
