The last time I checked, there weren't any affordable hotels in which one could choose to spend the rest of their lives in. Il Palazzo is definitely it. Get it on your 'things to do before I die' list ASAP.
Everything about this hotel reeks of class. Be it the magnificent and expansive property, the self contained rooms (more like houses), the LEGENDARY food and hospitality et al. You get treated like a King from the moment you arrive. Rooms are large, well appointed and comfortable. The furniture has a heritage feel and certainly lends a lot of glamour to the place.
Parsi food is written about far and wide. Il Palazzo takes it to the next level. The spread will spoil you for choice, while the taste will force you to join a gym upon return to your home town. You simply cannot resist the desserts. One stay at this hotel and you will dislike home cooked food for the next few days!
A note on the hospitality - the staff at this hotel is exceptionally well trained and courteous. They will pamper you to the core. They made my birthday weekend extra special.
If you ever return to Panchgani, the reason will be Il Palazzo and not for anything else. Period.
