Sahastrafana sanitarium lonavala


Sahastrafana Parshvanath Jain Sanitarium Lonavala. 

I have started loving this place for its peace, tranquility and positive vibrations that emanate from the jain temple in the premises. Big complex with rooms in configuration of 1: Studio 2: one bhk 3: two bhk. All the rooms/ flats are well appointed with air conditioning in all rooms televisions refrigerators and a fully equipped kitchenette. Special mention for the studios which are newly constructed, huge with a king sized bed a single bed, two air conditioners refrigerator and a fully equipped kitchenette.  Much more luxuriously appointed as compared to older configurations and sleeps three with a nice sit out looking out to the garden perfect place to read a good book and just be alone. Studio is what we have been booking frequently last couple of years. Don’t come here expecting a Hotel, room service, cigarettes, alcohol, non jain and non vegetarian food. This is a sanitarium pure and simple but much better than many others. 

The Jain temple on the premises after whose Moolnayak Shastrafana Parshvanath the 23rd tirthankar of Jainism this place is named is small as compared to other grander temples but I can swear by the gentle energy and positivity radiating from the temple. Go pray sit inside it will do you a world of good. Contact the office for Aangi Arti etc. 

There’s a garden, a children’s play area, religious books to read if you are so inclined and children’s playthings. Big property for leisurely walks with exotic birds flitting chirping keeping you company as you stroll maybe lost in contemplation? 

There’s a dining hall which serves delicious jain meals unlimited thalis for a very reasonable 210/- weekends 170/- weekdays. Dinners are a simpler affair @150/- but quite palatable and better than restaurant food. Only catch is that you will have to report for lunch latest by 1 pm and dinner by 8 pm. Breakfast is provided but you have to bring it to your room and eat also evening snacks tea/ coffee provided as well. Everything has to be booked in advance with coupons for meals available at the office. 

Some times the peace does get marred by loud incessant chatter as Gujrati’s being a boisterous lot shout and don’t talk when in groups but generally the bonhomie is restricted between the groups and is harmless. It does get on your nerves though as you try and enjoy a nice hot cup of coffee in the sit out wishing there were only birds for company.

Contact no. 022-24010875. Mumbai office. 

Contact no. 9422548841. Lonavala Mr Arjun Singh Manager. 

Few important tips to remember. 

You have to be back in the premises by 10/10.30 pm latest or you might not be allowed to enter. 

Contact Pandurang for everything from getting your car washed to getting your clothes ironed and even that urgent medicine from the market. 

A cleaning lady comes twice a day to clean the room, wash utensils, wash clothes and utensils if any. But she’s very particular about her timings so please plan around her. 

No cigarettes alcohol and non jain food.

As you take the exit for Lonavala keep driving through the market and as you see the Orchid to your left keep an eye out for a right turn, take that and turn right again in a small lane and the sanitarium will be to your right. However if you want to avoid the whole market traffic take the second exit for Lonavala and then take a left after Mapro specially on weekends. 

Please note that I have waxed eloquent about this place as I am quite biased, please don’t go there expecting the moon but a nice laid back place to relax for a few days and go back the the daily grind rejuvenated. 

Decent WiFi available in all rooms

About the Author

When I write I lay bare my soul. Amateurish attempts even if. That was my biggest dilemma when I thought of starting a blog. For when you open up deep hidden recesses of your inside, you are judged.

Sure you are applauded a little for what you did right but then the criticism comes in tons for your follies.

For the world is a cruel place indeed!

I have finally decided to go ahead with and post what has encompassed my life recently. Poetry. The words of exhilaration of anguish of tears of laughter of sometimes deep dark expressions waiting for a medium, for an outpour. Paths made of alphabets meandering through melancholy pain betrayal interspersed with brief bursts of bright and beautiful.

Poetry is what but a symphony of the pages with the writer wielding the baton making the words dance to a music that only he hears.

I am a man of contradictions, does that mean I say one thing and do the other? No! I do one thing and also do the other.

Middle age is when you look in the mirror and fret about what you see. At the threshold of old age with triumphs and regrets tucked in your holster You wait gingerly to cross over to the other fight.
When you look back with pleasure and pain and ahead with trepidation and hope.

So Dear Readers, let’s explore this beautiful world of words together. In my blog you will find poetry, short stories, travel reviews and tips and last but not the least Food. Restaurant reviews recipes and much more for I live to eat. For there is nothing more satisfying to soul than a good meal.

Get ready for a kaleidoscope of content but have patience for I have just started and will be posting as the write ups are ready. Please do express your thoughts on what is here anything from The Good The Bad and The Ugly for it will inspire me onwards and upwards. Jai Hind.
