While the IT industry, educational institutes and breezy weather mark Pune on the national map, there’s plenty to discover about the city when you look beyond the clichés. As the cultural capital of Maharashtra, Pune has always patronized art, theatre and music; there’s a rarely a week that goes by without a concert – classical, rock or jazz. Vivanta Pune, Hinjawadi’s Concierge service keeps you updated with Pune’s cultural calendar. Kick-start your weekend city itinerary with an easy trek up Parvati Hill or Sinhagad, one of Maharashtra’s most famous forts. The Raja Dinkar Kelkar Museum is home to a delightful collection of interesting Indian artefacts, from hookah pipes to writing instruments, sculptures, betel-nut cutters, textiles, toys and vintage musical instruments. Reserve at least half a day to visit the legendary Aga Khan Palace which once served as a prison for Indian freedom nationalists, and now houses a Gandhi Museum and a garden that’s perfect for a light stroll. Book yourself into a guided Heritage Walk of the old city – with peths (localities) named after seven days of the week - ending at the magnificent Shaniwar Wada fortress, Pune’s most recognized monument. The city’s iconic temples like Dagdusheth Ganpati, Balaji Temple and Chatushringi offer a glimpse into its spiritual side, while shopping hubs like Laxmi Road and M.G. Road are a must-visit to pick up well-crafted local souvenirs. For a day trip, the Appu Ghar amusement park, Lavasa – Maharashtra’s first planned hill city – and Lonavla – one of India’s most beloved vintage hill stations perched on the slopes of the Sahyadri mountains – are all just a short drive away.

The cuisine of Maharashtra is amongst the most underrated in India, with different sub-cuisines even within the state. Vivanta Pune, Hinjawadi puts a spotlight on one of these, the fiery Varhadi cuisine from the districts of Nagpur, Amravati and Wardha in the far east of Maharashtra. Rustic and earthy, it is distinguished by the bold flavours of chillies, dry coconut, lentils, jaggery and peanuts. Our chefs have crafted a Varhadi thali/set meal served on Saturdays at Buzz, the all-day diner. The experience is an adventure for food lovers, introducing them to new flavours and unusual culinary techniques. Corporate guests are pleasantly surprised to discover that the cuisine is low-fat, well-balanced and a wholesome, complete diet. One can relish regional delicacies like Kombdi Varhadi (local spicy chicken), Mutton Saoji (mutton cooked in a complex spice mix from the trader community in Vidarbha) and Patodi Rassa (gram flour dumplings gravy). Our servers explain the etiquette to eating certain dishes like the festive Vada Bhaat; you have to crush the lentil fritters over a mound of steamed rice, then pour over a yoghurt-based gravy followed by hot oil and asafoetida water. The splendid meal is rounded off with Puranpoli, a sweet wheat flatbread with lentil and coconut stuffing, served with hot clarified butter.
