I’m a big city type of girl.
Always have been, always will be.
But as much as I love the fast-paced, vibrant energy that Mumbai has to offer, I think everyone needs to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life once in a while. Thankfully, I had the opportunity to de-stress in Alibaugh, Maharashtra for two days for a photoshoot.
Some creatives would say that a jam packed weekend of shooting is work. For me, as a blogger and makeup artist, it’s play. Especially when you get to have your first homestay experience at Satyam Shivam Sundaram, a phrase that literally translates to “Truth, Goodness, Beauty”. After spending two days and one night at SSS, every traveler will realize that the name is quite fitting for the accommodation!
If you need a quiet place to relax, there is a temple in the area where you can meditate.
Are you a dog person? A cat person? Both? Great! You’ll be surrounded by furry friends everywhere you go in Alibaug!
If you need a change of scenery, you can go for a hike …
Or maybe you prefer long romantic walks on the beach (or, in our case, glamorous yoga sessions) …
What about spending golden hour in this lovely forest? Is that a yes, or is that a yes?
If you think this place is way too good to be true, you’re right. There’s a catch. At Satyam Shivam Sundaram, you have to earn your meals. By swinging. On a vine. Or the actual swing itself. Here’s footage of me earning my breakfast with Uncle.
That’s all for now! Hope you enjoyed the behind the scenes shots and I can’t wait to share the final visuals with you!
