Week after week of the same old routine makes us wish for a change. A little break to rejuvenate from the daily hustle-bustle is always welcome. A long weekend right around the corner, and it’s the perfect opportunity to take that much-needed break. It’s time to take that family holiday in August that you’ve been hoping for. There are many long weekend family holiday destinations from major cities in the country that you can explore.

Monsoons are in full swing in August, and it’s a good time to take a trip. The lush greenery with a contrast of looming grey clouds is always a refreshing sight! Based on which city you reside in, you can choose any of these destinations for the coming long weekend.

  • Goa 

Goa is a whole new experience during the monsoons. The beaches may be inaccessible, but the gushing waterfalls invite you to take a dip and rejuvenate yourselves. Goa is easily accessible from Mumbai as well as Bangalore. You can either drive to Goa, take a flight, or an overnight bus or train. 2-3 days in Goa is sufficient for a relaxing long weekend family holiday

Club Mahindra has four resorts in Goa. Based on which part of Goa you want to stay in, you can plan your stay at one of these resorts. Club Mahindra Assonora resort is in Bardez, North Goa. The resort has a water park where you and your family can spend a fun-filled day in the Lazy River and other exciting water slides.
