If there was Heaven close to Pune, in Maharashtra, Kino's would be it!!!!! Been visiting since more than a decade and never once does it disappoint me. It says a lot about Vicky Lutharia (the fabulous host). I don't know how he ensures everything to the T. Whether it's the hygiene, the food or the service provided by his team. They go above and beyond words can ever express. I never get enough of this place. If you haven't been here, you are missing out on Godliness. No matter the weather conditions, Vicky has ensured everything is available and at the guests' disposal. I would probably live off this place for the rest of my life if I could. Some stand out things for me being an avid traveller across the globe, the rooms are spic (star attraction and the only one I ever put up in, is the one with a private pool inside the room). One must experience it. They have an open roof top sit out which is closer to the lush nature and blue skies. It exposes you to the beauty eyes can't fathom. There are different kinds of seating arrangements laid out for the guests to enjoy different ambiences and comforts. Bluetooth boom box at your disposal to play your favorite music at the tip of ur cell phone. Service cant get any better. The staff is always at your disposal but never in your space- which isnt something I see very often. Last but not the least at all- the FOOD. The food can beat any 7 star restaurant in the world. If elixir was in solid form, the food here would be it. All these years and not one thing that ever disappointed me. I have always ended up eating more than I should. Sometimes I would also get some packed to get back home and relish. They also have a way to the Pawana lake and have a personal kayak. And ofcourse hookah. Please make time to be here once and I promise you will never get enough! Thanks Vicky for all that you do and the heart you have been putting in Kino's. God bless.

The place was very charming but there were rats in the closet and they were running on the walls and ceiling too. I kept my handbag in the closet and They made a hole in it and chewed the sides too! There was no apology from the owner / manager even after bringing it to their notice .!!

We booked this place to have a nice getaway with our friends . The villa has super spacious and comfortable rooms . The cleanliness & upkeep of the rooms and the property is definitely something that is their priority . Specially during covid , this was something that was our main point to look at while we booked . Their staff is very hospitable , they offered us so many options on food during our stay . Delicious food and service by their staff . The property has the best 180 degree view of the pavna lake which you absorb all through your stay from their deck and your room . In all, would definitely recommend going there if you are looking for a relaxing stay with amazing view and delicious lip smacking good

It’s a beautiful property with an amazing view close to nature. I visited this property with my family which includes one year old toddler. The rooms were clean and well maintained. The staff was extremely polite and helpful and made sure to attend to our needs. The chef went out of his way to make some healthy snacks for my little one. A big thank you to them for making our stay very comfortable. The overall experience is not what any place will give you. You have to visit to believe it.

Inspite of some of the negative reviews here, I had heard a lot about this place from friends who had been there and wouldn’t stop raving about this place . I decided to give it a shot with my family.. and it was a great decision I made. Omgggg - what a view !!! Left us spellbound and the food and service was outstanding. The place is so beautiful and serene facing the Pavna lake and surrounded by mountains. As soon as we entered the property we were welcomed by the staff who was happy to guide us around. Covid protocols all followed with masks and sanitising in place. The rooms were absolutely clean hygienic and well maintained. The food and high tea made by Chef Munna was lip smacking. Mr. Ashish saw to it that all the elders were well taken care of. The sun deck was the best place to chill with the family with views of the lake and beautiful sunsets. Having board games, table tennis , pool table etc which made the entire family happy. The rooms on both levels faced directly to the lake and waking up to that view is something which will be missed. Me and my family had a lovely break at Kino Lakeside Chalet and will definitely recommend it and we look forward to going back there soon 😀

We booked this property in July 2021, completely based on the images of the property sent by the owner and reviews on Tripadvisor etc. and were shocked at how different the reality was from what we had seen here. It is quite evident that no maintenance has been done since its inception. Service was very sub-par, food was highly average and the rooms and ceilings were literally falling off. You can see the images attached. The only good thing about this place was the view (and thankfully not in the management's hands to change or manage) All in all, for the price they quote, this place shouldn't even feature in the same category, let alone be comparable. Also trip advisor should penalize property managers in posting fictitious and fake images which are no where close to reality Skip it !

Good: Views Average: Food Bad: Everything else is a disaster. 1) Upkeep: Despite having atleast half a dozen staff or so, most of the villa is in absolute shambles as far as cleanliness goes. 2) Service: The staff is not friendly at all. Although they are always around, it just doesn’t feel like they’re here to make your stay comfortable. During the meal service, they are always right on your head looking to clear the dishes (doesn’t matter if you’re still working on your meal)! The staff is so rude they didn’t even allow us to chill by the lake after our checkout. The next checkin was coming after an hour and we weren’t in the property. 3) Price: A place that is probably not cleaned in ages and with the staff that is quite inhospitable, the price that is being charged is simply unacceptable. This one’s not even worth half of what’s being charged.

Place is promoted as premium luxury stay. Price is for sure as per the positioning. Location is premium. Other aspects associated to make overall experience to create long lasting memories was not there. Hospitality by owner and staff : 0 /5 Property upkeep and condition of rooms: 0 /5 Summary: Property is kept as the way bachelors treat rented property and service is the way maids/house help treat bachelors. Apologizes for being sarcistic towards bachelors. It was just meant to bring home a point. Few pictues which highlights a Chandelier which meant for asthetics is actually home of spiders and other insects. Looking at pillow will definitely make your sleep runaway.

This lake touch property at Pavna is delight for all. We had visited this place in December by chance and luckily it was available because someone had cancelled. (sorry for late post) Location, view, hospitality, care, comfort and food all will make you feel relaxed and rejuvenated. I even took online yoga class at this beautiful location. I would call it a hidden gem. Each room has different element like one has pool. One has bathtub. This is perfect location for bigger group of 25-30 ppl.

If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful, and scenic, picturesque getaway from the crowds of hotels and also one that is fully serviced with your personal butler, lovely food, looking over the lake and the hills, well taken care of rooms, this is a home away from home for families and friends to enjoy together with 4 bedrooms. Complete privacy, given that there are no other guests. Enjoy a swim in the river from their own built-in deck. Fantastic hospitality by Prashant and his staff that make the experience pleasant and without worries.
