The resort boasts over 15,000 square feet of flexible indoor meeting space, including the 8000 square foot Grand Ballroom, which is newly renovated. The Corinthians Resort and Club currently has four outdoor function areas and lawns that have hosted some of Pune’s most prestigious weddings and outdoor concerts.
