Bangaloreans, take off to this twin city for the next long weekend!

Tired of visiting the same old crowded places every long weekend? The point of a vacation is to get away from the busy city life but that point is invalid when you take off somewhere only to realize that place is crowded too. How about the next long weekend you take off somewhere else! No goa, gokarna, coorg, ooty, or kodaikanal. The place we are about to suggest is not usually known as a vacation destination so you won’t find too much crowd here. If you are looking for adventure, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a laid back vacation with relaxation on your mind, you should definitely stay in Hubli the next long weekend!

Yes, it might have never occurred to you to take off to Hubli for a vacation. For most of us, Hubli is a temple town, a small town without much to do. But that is far from the truth. It’s true that Hubli does not have beaches with water sports or mountain ranges to trek, but it has serene lakes, beautiful hills and more. This is the perfect place for a lazy vacation. From choosing which Hubli hotel to book to what to do there, we’ve got you covered.

How to get to Hubli?

You can reach Hubli by private transport, bus, train or even flight. If you are up for driving, it will take you around 7 hours to reach Hubli. If you don’t mind splurging a bit, you can take a flight and reach Hubli within an hour. The trains take around 8 hours and the bus takes the longest time at around 9 hours from Bangalore.

Where to stay?

Since, we are talking about a relaxed vacation; we suggest a retreat hotel for your stay. Naveen hotel in Hubli is a beautiful place set right next to the Unkal Lake and offers an amazing lake view from the rooms. The hotel is the perfect for relaxing and rejuvenating. It has a huge pool, a well-equipped gym, and spa for you to relax at. The hotel also has a restaurant, bar, and cafe under its roof. The restaurant at the hotel is touted to be one of the best multi cuisine restaurants in Hubli. The hotel also has a banquet hall and conference room.

What to do?

Like we already mentioned, there is not much to do around in Hubli, but that doesn’t mean you have to sit in the hotel all day. The place has a few tourist attractions such as the pristine unkal lake, Nrupatunga hill, Indira Gandhi Glass house, museums, temples, and more. If you are staying at Naveen Hotel, you won’t even feel the need to visit the lake as the hotel itself offers an unparalleled view of the hotel. You can also venture into the town to do some shopping for handicrafts and taste the authentic ‘Jolada rotti’ and ‘Dharwad peda’ amongst popular local other dishes.
