“Club Mahindra has changed the fortunes of the place”
Reviewed 16 May 2012

Yes indeed, Club Mahindra has changed the fortunes of the place...Not much has changed after CMs management in the property except the management staff.
However Good Food, cool weather and plenty of activities can keep you busy for 3-4 days.
Definitely must stay place for a few days.

This resort is now managed by Club Mahindra, and it was therefore disappointing to find it below par to their usual standard. It is located about 3 hours drive from Dehradun station and 1.5 hours drive from Mussoorie. The taxi fare from Dehradun to Kanatal was Rs 2000, and there is a pre-pay facility outside the station.
It is not advisable to undertake the drive to/from Mussoorie after a big meal, as the road is very windy and having done this trip four times during our stay we experienced varying degrees of travel sicknesss during every trip.
The resort is in a nice peaceful location opposite a pine forest, a walk through which offers beautiful views of the Himalayas on a clear day.
Quality of accommodation at the resort was good, however we did have problem with the availability of hot water at night. This remained unresolved despite making two complaints to the General Manager, who seemed to think that the problem was an old one and had been taken care of.
Staff at the resort can appear unresponsive, especially in the restaurant where repeated requests had to be made.
On the return trip back to Dehradun station the taxi was organised by the resort, fare was Rs 2500 (25% more than the inbound taxi fare), which seems comparatively excessive.
On the whole I would suggest that if you are looking for a frustration free holiday, avoid this in the short to medium term. These comments have also been passed on to Club Mahindra.......no response yet.

New property taken over by Club Mahindra last month. 5 star facilities for a shared vacation resort like a Bar, Heated swiming pool, SPA, Coffe Shop, Gym etc. is defenitely a bonus for Mahindra. However, I assume it shall take them a few months for fine tuning and refining the resort. Food is great, bar is good but can have few more IMFL choices though. The Fun Zone and children activity area needs urgent attention and swings / play area needs to be added immediately (though resort informed us that it is under consideration and implementation). Great location in middle of a hill and eco forest area, very peacefull, good view of the valley though not much activity outside (being far flunged from Mussorie), nearest being Surkhunda Devi temple and Dhanaulti Eco Park which are a must visit.
Rooms do not have wheel chair access which is big challenge for the elderly and differently abled and must be looked into ASAP. Service is good, old staff are very effecient - Sanjeev is a great guy to help around in the resturant.

Room Tip: Far from Mussorie so be prepared to drive. Eco Park Dhanaulty is must visit in case you have small...

We stayed in Kanatal Spa and Resort in May 2011. The property is very nice, the food is mind blowing and believe it or not, there is a cake served with every lunch and dinner. Their bakery products including the cookies are very good. Due to the height some people might experience breathing problems, but the place is totally stress free. The steam and sauna are amazing, and i made full use of them. Only suggestion is to move the spa rooms away from the pool, as the pool tends to be crowded and noisy. Also, the staff can be a little more attentive. Sometimes tend to be a tad lost. All in all the most awesome vacation.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms overlooking the valley

Kanatal Resorts is called a spa resort but when we visited, there was repair work going on in the spa area. I had to insist on a treatment which was average and marred by the banging noises of construction outside.

The rooms are nicely if unimaginatively done.

My biggest problem with this hotel is the food which actually gave me a case of Delhi Belly high up in the hills. Also the menu with its terrible misspelling is a joke. For a hotel that touts itself as "High on style" this is just not on.

A nice walk takes you to a pretty orchard otherwise there's nothing much to do in the vicinity.

Room Tip: Try the ones in the back with a hill view.
