Novotel Imagica Khopoli is set in verdant surroundings overlooking the rolling hills of the Sahyadri Mountains. As well as being steps away from the thrills of Imagica Theme Park, the hotel is also within easy reach of a host of fascinating excursion destinations.
You’ll have three times the fun at Imagica. In addition to the Theme Park, there are wet and wild thrills at the Water Park and icy escapades at the Snow Park.
Imagica Theme Park offers fun and entertainment for all the family, along with shopping and dining, in one single location. The streets are filled with clowns, magicians and lots more. You’ll meet lovable Imagica characters including Tubbby the Flying Elephant, Roberto the Star Chef, and the Lost Astronaut, as well as popular favourites like Puss in Boots and the Gingerbread Man. To see them all, don’t miss the Grand Parade. And of course, Imagica Theme Park offers thrilling rides for the whole family – from Bump It Boats and the Tubbby Takes Off carousel to the adrenalin rushes of Dare 2 Drop and India’s craziest roller coaster, the Nitro.
Water Park means an array of wet fun for all ages. The little ones love the mini slides and playful characters of Pirate Bay, while mums and dads can relax and sail down the lazy river at Floatsa. You can also get a thrilling taste of weightlessness on the Boomeranggo.
At the Snow Park, India’s biggest, you can experience exciting toboggan rides, have a game of Snow Basketball and get down on the Snow Dancefloor, all in sub-zero temperatures.
Halfway between Mumbai and Pune City, there is more to Novotel Imagica than amusement park thrills. Matheran is a picturesque hill station in the Western Ghats, to the north of the hotel. This eco-sensitive region is home to around 38 lookouts offering stunning views of the mountainous landscape. As motor vehicles are not permitted, travelling to Matheran is half the fun. A narrow-gauge toy train takes you on a steep zig-zagging ride, with scenic valley vistas along the way.
Khandala and Lonavala, to the east of Novotel Imagica Khopoli, are beautiful hill stations at the edge of the Sahyadri Mountains. Here you’ll find lush grassy slopes, verdant valleys and picturesque lakes – even more breathtaking during monsoon season. Duke’s Nose peak and the Karla hills are popular destinations for rappelling. The trek to the two fortified structures at Rajmachi Fort takes you past silvery waterfalls, streams and dense green forests. The centuries-old Lohagad Fort is reached by a winding trail and offers sweeping views of surrounding valleys and the picturesque hill station of Lonavala. The spectacular Karla, Bedse and Bhaja caves are Buddhist temples, carved into the mountainside, that date back around 2,000 years.
