How to Spend a Solo Weekend in Mumbai with Monarch Group of Hotels!

Mumbai, the city that never sleeps, has a wide range of experiences to suit the whims and imagination of any solo traveller. Mumbai has everything one might want, be it gastronomic exploration, a tranquil getaway, or cultural immersion. Here’s a guide on how to enjoy a relaxing stay at one of the Monarch Group of Hotels while spending a solo weekend in Mumbai.

 

Day 1: Seeing Mumbai’s South

Colaba and the Gateway of India

Visit the famous Gateway of India, a magnificent arch monument with a view of the Arabian Sea, to start your day. After that, stroll down Colaba Causeway, a busy thoroughfare brimming with stores offering everything from designer clothes to antiques. Don’t pass up the opportunity to visit Leopold Café, a storied establishment that has been welcoming tourists for many years.

 

Art and Culture

The Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya (previously the Prince of Wales Museum) is the next place you should visit. This museum offers a comprehensive look into India’s rich history and legacy through its extensive collection of artefacts, sculptures, and artwork. A trip to the neighbouring Jehangir Art Gallery is essential if you’re an art fan. You can view modern art exhibits here that feature the creations of both established and up-and-coming artists.

 

Marine Drive

Finish your day with a leisurely walk along Marine Drive, which is sometimes called the Queen’s Necklace because of its sparkling streetlights, which at night resemble a string of pearls. Choose a position on the promenade where you can take in the refreshing sea wind and the sunset. Head to one of the many eateries in the Churchgate and Nariman Point vicinity or along the highway for dinner. For some delicious seaside cuisine, seafood enthusiasts should check out Surbhi Malvani Kitchen and Bar, staying at Monarch Guestline, Rabale.

 

Day 2: Suburban Splendour

Bandra – The Queen of Suburbs

To start your second day, take a drive to Bandra, a bustling suburb renowned for fusing modernism and old-world charm. See the tranquil Mount Mary’s Basilica, which offers expansive views of the Arabian Sea. Explore Bandra Fort and take in the picturesque vistas of the Bandstand Promenade after that.

 

Cafes and Street Art

Street art is a well-known feature of Bandra, particularly along Chapel Road. Wander around and enjoy the vibrant graffiti and murals that cover the walls. Pick among Bandra’s many cafés and restaurants for lunch, including the trendy Bombay Salad Co. and the charming Pali Village Café.

 

 

Juhu Beach

Spend the evening at one of Mumbai’s most well-liked locations, Juhu Beach. Savour the delicious street cuisine, like bhel puri and pav bhaji, and take in the vibrant environment. You could even be lucky enough to spot some Bollywood stars who hang out there.
