Tropicana: A tropical paradise not far from Mumbai.
I booked this hotel on the advice of friends and what a splendid experience it turned out to be.Stayed there for a weekend which seemed long and never wished it to end!
I have stayed at several resorts in various parts of the world and Tropicana won me over by its simple elegance and quietly efficient service.Its costing seemed very practical for its amenities and the pleasure it offered.It is not luxurious but so comfortable that after 3 months I remember it clearly and well.
The location is about 3 hours from Mumbai airport on a good road.You can also go by ferry from Gateway but as i was at the airport I drove down.Once you near Alibaug the location is not difficult to follow and the map and route on the resort website is actually quite helpful!!
There are 2 kinds of rooms The cottages are closer to the main building and pool. The new wings just opened have comfortable rooms which are spacious, well turned out and not crowded at all.The feeling of space is palpable and adds to the comfort. The bed was comfortable, the air conditioning worked and could be easily controlled and the fans did provide air circulation to control the humidity.The toilet amenities were simple and functional and the toilet itself was tastefully done with no leaking faucets or watermarks marring it!
The food had several kinds of cuisine with a local touch.Indian ,Chinese, Italian and whatever else Indians currently like were all there The staff was more than attentive to prepare what you may want.The south Indian breakfast was fresh and delicious and is a hallmark of a good resort.
The pool and the lawns are inviting and send you into a langour...there is a hilltop temple nearby and worth a walk to create an appetite for the worthy meals.
The staff is very friendly and attentive they have the local simplicity and grace as well as efficiency which makes a resort tick.
I would return here and soon!
