KUNKHET VALLEY RESORT

Seven kilometres away from Club Mahindra is a budget-friendly resort that is so much cheaper than Club Mahindra that it amazed us to another extent.

The Cricket Academy of the resort has a professional coach, umpire, facilitators, changing room, medicines, and other facilities. The owner of the resort belongs to Jainism. So Kunkhet Valley only serves vegetarian food. In the end, the resort is LGBTQIA friendly, so inform your queer friends to book it this Pride month.
