Our first visit to Imagica was a few years back when it had just opened up. It was one of the coolest theme parks India had ever come up with and I called it the Universal Studio with an Indian heart. The trip took us 2.5 hours with all the Mumbai traffic and after spending the whole day there, we had to drive back. It was fun but we got too tired and driving back in that traffic was not fun.
Fast forward to April 2019 and Ahaan and I are headed to Imagica again. This time we are going to stay at Hotel Novotel Imagica which is located next to India’s biggest theme park Adlabs Imagica and Aquamagica. I am so glad that Novotel opened here because we can head to Imagica whenever we want and head back to the hotel when we are done.
There was an Irolic parade that happened with all the characters from the theme park like Mr India, Mogambo etc during breakfast time and it was a sight to see the kids go crazy. I literally had to run after Ahaan. This so reminded me of characters that have breakfast with you at Disneyland.
Spa, Gym and Kids Room
It’s has a reasonably equipped gym and a dedicated spa next to the kid’s room. Parents can drop their kids in the kids room and head either way :).
By the way, there is a ticket inside the hotel also, so buy your tickets there – you can beat the lines on the ticket counters outside!

I could not have asked for a better arrangement of stay and food and fun along with Imagica and we are sure to be back once the weather cools down. Novotel has definitely made the whole experience worth the travel. We are taking back some lovely times.
Tip – monsoon would be the best time to plan a visit to the hotel. The weather would be better and the greenery around will make it worth it.
