Forest Hills, Tala: A ‘twin-sharing mud hut for two’ sounds exactly like the wild Valentine plan you need this year. Whisk your beau/belle off to Forest Hills, Tala, a hyper green boutique hotel that sits in the lap of Raigad​. The one-night getaway package for Valentine’s Day (until Feb 18) includes a four course farm-to-table lunch followed by archery and rifle shooting in the evening, so you can hit the right spot. The dinner scene will unfold in an alfresco candle lit setting with a live barbecue, and the morning-after plan includes a cave trek. Mud huts, glass houses and “pink parrot” rooms are the nesting options you can choose from.
