Is club mahindra membership worth it? Are you satisfied and what is the best season and room combination?
It is totally not worth. Too many rules and regulations makes the experience of booking really unsatisfactory. You will end up being completely frustrated. New rules are generated overnight. My suggestion, please stay away from it !!
Member since 2012 and suffering every time I need to book for my holidays.
Not sure, if worth it or no...
there are always hassles while making a reservation!!! Two days ago, I called the call centre to make reservation at Tungi, Pavna. I asked for 4 rooms.. ( I know it’s exam time in Mumbai!) The lady told me, with purple membership of 1 BR, I could get only 3 rooms.. I explained to her, I have 12 points, I can get one more; or I can pay for a room.. Then she asked me to speak to resort directly! Mr Bhagat, at resort told me to get a wait listed booking!! I again call Ms Saraswati at Call centre , she says, since rooms are available, she can’t make a wait list booking!!! I am speechless... I have enough points... Rooms are available... but I can’t be given extra room !!!! Pathetic :(
I am not a Club Mahindra Member, but my business sense say to not to Pay in Advance, I will explain you this
If you go with Membership Purple, for 20 lacks
If you deposit this Money in Bank, you have your money with you and if I count 8% Return on FD you get 1.6 Lacks
Now If you book a Room in a Resort anywhere for a Week of your choice and Date you will be able to save a good amount of Sum
They are cheats masquerading as holiday package providers.Don't believe any one word of theirs.
Don't ever go near them.
With the amount of cheating they are doing to their customers,they will soon come under the lens of law and will shut down.
Shame Mr Mahindra. The curse of your customers will make you suffer 100 times the sufferings of your customers.
It's pathetic.. 50 resorts, out of which only 8/10 are located with proper connectivity. Members more then 2.5 lakhs.. Always waiting list for booking, keep begging for a confirm booking.
DO NOT buy the membership.
Club Mahindra sales man are the making you fool all around. They give almost all false commitments. I went to TATA motors moti Nagar for TATA Nexon purchase but they saved my number and again called me for this fraud program without giving me full details. Then Club Mahindra Sales Man, their so called Branch Manager is just want your credit Card to swipe 10% of total money which is few lacs without doing market research of their foolish membership. They even tell you if you would not like their service you can cancel it in 10 days and can get refund your full amount. But they will not tell you about EF(Entitlement fees) which will deduct from your amount and It was 60% of your token money.
So if you have purchased White STU(One of their Plans) of Rs 439000 (Feb 2018) and Rs 43900 is token money then only 40% you will get refund if you want to cancel it in 10 days look in period. They say this is due to they don't want to loose their member.
These all are pre sales false commitment apart from offers/Nights/cashback which they offer for only token money and get you in the loop of their worst services.
Now, if you are their member
you will not get rooms available for you with your choice dates.
you have to plan your holiday in off season and according to them 2-4 months before so you will get availability.
Their all properties are not 5 star rating which they said at the time of joining.
Location and Food expense you will surely not like after visiting there property. They just want to stay their location only and not to visit around.
So don't get membership and book resort of your choice. and also you will availability when you are not member of club mahindra in their resort.
Yes...They are a big cheating company...Even after paying ASF..They keep on sending reminders to confuse us...Never we get rooms...Non members get rooms but not members...Worst app..Which does not have membership calendar...If they are not able to manage demand and supply..Why they in this business...Do not get into trap of their sales...They are liers to the core...They do not recommend correct membership...My sincere advice not to go for membership..Just a simple logic...50 resorts...More than 2 lakhs members...How they can manage...chor log..
