A Grand Escape with the BMW 3 Series Gran Limousine

Our recent interlude with the BMW 3 Series Gran Limousine proved its commitment towards self indulgence and comfort

Sometimes the most productive thing you can do is relax. This is such an inspiring yet simple formula, at times we get so embroiled in our hectic lifestyles that we actually forget to unwind. Hectic work weeks, endless traffic jams — a rat race that might pay the bills, but it also sucks the life out of you. Every now and then, you need a break from it all, and that’s why we have our cars. Because when we're feeling a little overwhelmed, sometimes there's no better way to de-stress than jumping in the car and going for a relaxing drive.

The BMW 3 Series Gran Limousine provides you exactly that. It takes control by finding a relaxing solution that satisfies you – this in itself is empowering. Driving thrills and luxury — they seem to be the two opposing sides of the same coin but some cars, like the 3 Series Gran Limousine, manage to tread the fine line between them perfectly. This luxury sedan manages to offer the poise and dynamics you’d expect of a BMW with uncompromising luxury. When you’re in the mood, it will indulge the driver in you. It has the speed, it has the dynamics, it has the poise. It is a proper rear wheel drive sedan that thrills and sucks you into the driving experience. Think of the BMW 3 Series Gran Limousine as an escape, a chance to be alone and enjoy the drive.

But the beauty about the 3 Series Gran Limousine is that it is more than just that. It allows you to take the back seat when you want to, it allows you to indulge in yourself. It’s the perfect setting for practicing mindfulness — a form of meditation which allows you to focus on your surroundings and the present moment, much like you would at the Atmantan Wellness Retreat in Mulshi.

Nestled on the fringe of a hill and spanning over 42 acres of lush green valley, Atmantan Wellness Retreat has its abode in the Majestic Sahyadris and overlooks the pristine Mulshi Lake. You can indulge yourself in some proper luxury, personalised service, yoga sessions, a salt water pool and massage therapies, all of which let you be in perfect isolation from the chaos of the outside world. There’s spectacular views to be enjoyed from the resort which, most uniquely, boats of minimalistic yet luxurious architectural design that seamlessly showcases the landscapes around. Then there’s the courteous hospitality — you are treated with fondness and every member of the staff is committed towards making you feel at ease. Even the food being served is tasked to cleanse your soul — the healthy delights are prepared using farm fresh produce and complements the theme of the retreat.

It really provides the ideal environment to unwind, much like the BMW 3 Series Gran Limousine’s back seat. It is more stretched out than the standard 3 Series which allows you to lounge and unwind in order to better attune with your thoughts and emotions, and, in turn, feel more relaxed. The experience is silent, comfortable, and cut out from the outside world. The seats with the BMW 3 Series Gran Limousine are welcoming — they are plush, supportive and double up as your comfort bed. What’s more, the panoramic sunroof allows for the natural elements to be passed into the cabin, while the inbuilt air purifier helps keep the air you breathe perfectly pure. It’s like your own luxurious resort on wheels. And once you’re in here, you realise how the little things that make the big differences — wider door apertures so you can get in and out easier, and seats that have been reprofiled specifically for comfort. And the BMW 3 Series Gran Limousine even allows you to take control of things from the back seat — just say 'Hey BMW’ and the virtual assistant will be at your service.
