Puraniks Rumah Bali at Ghodbunder Road in Thane

Bali is an island having the perfect mix of scenic beauty with volcanic mountains, beaches and coral reefs. This makes it a highly sought after holiday destination for people around the world. However, the rigorous routine of the modern day makes it impossible for people to fulfill their desire of visiting this wonder of nature.  The Puranik Builders have made an attempt of bringing Bali to the people in their project Rumah Bali which means ‘Home in Bali’, right here in the middle of the busy streets of Thane.

Puraniks Rumah Bali: Location

Rumah Bali by Puranik is located near Poushmata Mandir bus stop in Gaimukh Gaon at Ghodbunder road. Being located at Ghodbunder Road, connectivity is not an issue. The Ghodbunder Road runs through Thane District and connects the Eastern and Western Express highways of Mumbai. Also, it connects Thane to the Western Suburbs of Mumbai like Mira Road and Borivali. Transport on this road has been made easier by constant availability of city buses like BEST, TMT, MBMT and NMMT.

Tropical Lagoon off Ghodbunder Road in Kavesar- Thane (West)

Travelling on the Ghodbunder Road, I saw many buildings as I passed by. I had a feeling of  indifference looking at them, until a series of buildings having a unique elevation with wavy louvers caught my eye. These unconventional buildings were a part of the project Tropical Lagoon by Soham group,  tallest in the vicinity by far, and their eye-catching look tempted me to pay them a visit.
