“Amazing Location closer to heaven”
Reviewed 15 July 2012

Igatpuri is an amazing location full of greenery and a foggy weather... It was sept 2010 and rains were still on... The most popular resort here was Manas but was exorbitantly priced...We chose Golden resort on a frnds recommendation of it being value for money and its location... We travellee to igatpuri by train and then a rick to golden resort ...this place is hidden in the valley between 2 mountains abt 1 km frm the highway...the resort isnt even visible frm the highway but once u get closer u se the tiny resort in the backdrop of these huge hills...
Pros
Location
location
& just the location


U can trek up the hil and get amazing views from the top..the local sheperds go all the way to the topwith their cows..u can join them if u r just guts..not recommended if u r a couple...

cons
The hotel, doorways and sometimes even the rooms stink
Rooms are very ok and not maintained
Mgr is good to talk till u give him the advance then he can b extremely rude
Not a family place as u will find grp of guys who jst come to drink..
Food is just abt ok
you need ur car to travel to and fro since u need to walk to the highway to catch the rick..
The way to the resort is secluded and can be unsafe during night...



Only recommended if u r a grp if guys not so much for ur family...

Not quite the nightmare of the previous reviewer with bats but not a pleasant experience. We had booked one of the more expensive rooms hoping for a reasonable stay so had a living room as well as a bedroom. The bedroom was very dark, no window to anywhere.
The rooms were very scruffy and tired and not particularly clean and there was mould and stains in the bathroom.
The bed was very hard just like a board and the sheets were stained. Luckily we had packed our sleeping bag liners and this was the only place during our 5 week stay in India that we had to use them.
I would never return to this hotel. There is a new hotel just up the road that looked much nicer.

Unbelievably horrible! It couldnt have been worse than this. Igatpuri known for its excellent drive and scenic views, especially during monsoons. Golden Resort was available and I paid a little higher than the rack rate as I was booking at a short notice, but I didnt mind since the pictures and amenities mentioned on their website seemed terrific. As we checked in, we were immediately handed over the keys to our room, which apparently was located on 2nd floor in the old dilapidated block (we were not told about this when we made the booking). The stairs to the 2nd flr were extremely narrow and reminded me of some ancient building, which was totally unkept and very filthy. The room was sized decently and overlooked the pool and the mountain. As we went during the monsoon season, the mountain view was amazing but the room amenities were absolutely Zero. The only things available in the bathroom were a broken & stained bucket and mug. The bedsheets were stained too and reminded of a third grade hospital as they smelled aweful. We were still content trying not to be too critical. After resting for a while, we decided to go for our lunch and were shocked to see just 3 dishes served, which they termed as buffet!!!! It was like - "eat whatever is served" and not that the preparation was any good. But since all meals were included in the package, we didnt have much of a choice. The weather was the only good thing we enjoyed in this hotel - the hotel was devoid of any kind of recreation and amenities. The WORST EXPERIENCE IS YET TO BEGIN – As we prepared to go to bed we could hear a few noises coming from there. We ignored for a while but the intensity kept on increasing and when the sounds became more than bearable, we called up for help. The moment the staff opened the AC cover, a mob of bats popped out and started hovering all around the room ceiling. I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT COULD GET SO MUCH WORSE - A NIGHTMARISH EXPERIENCE! On requesting for another room, the manager raised his hands and said he cannot help us. We quickly packed our bags and drove back to Mumbai at midnight, swearing never to look back at the hotel or recommend to anyone. I so REGRET I booked this hotel as I would NEVER stay here EVEN FOR FREE!!!

Room Tip: none of the rooms are worth staying in - an absolute mess!

Igatpuri is a cool green place to spend a weekend away from work & daily rush. Easily accessible from Mumbai / Nasik. Golden resort is located between 2 cliffs, it maked you feel you are out of the world. Nice cozy place with swimming pool, garden and the staff is co-operative. The food quality & maintenance of rooms is average. Cleanliness is maintained though. Very cheap compared to the much hyped Manas.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on ground floor as you can find insects at night.

About Location.

Igatpuri what should we say....Just 1 word...Beautiful...
The Resort is located in between 2 mountains.
Since this is rainy season there were all shades of green everywhere and weather was superb.
The resort has natural beautiful small water paths flowing beside it.
Overall the location was amazing.

Rooms.

The resort have different sets of rooms Non ac/AC deluxe etc.
The rooms beside the pool have superb mountain view but can be noisy as it is beside the swiming pool.
They have a swiming pool as well and small section for children as well in the pool itself.
Rooms were Ok nothing to praise about.

Food.

The food was buffet at all times.
There was veg as well as nonveg sections of food.
The preparation was good atleast when we had it.
Outside drinks were not allowed as they have their BAR section but very expensive.

Verdict.

A resort with superb location but poorly maintained.
Doesnt seems to be a family resort as we found lot of crowd specially Gents enjoying their weekends at this resort.
The family might feel akward also the pool is always occupied by the groups and womens and kids will have to suffer as this place is always crowded on weekends.
