“Could have been a better experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2010

This is the only resort I have stayed at in Karjat - an impulsive selection rather than based on any research. This resort is better than many other resorts I have stayed at in other places. But still, I would classify this place as 'yet another resort'.
Nice place, lots of greenery, nice looking bungalows. Gives you a feeling of peace. Nice gardens, well maintained, and clean environment and clean rooms. Food was tasty, the restaurant staff quite helpful and nice. It was interesting to see the staff scrubbing the sidewalks clean.
The open drains are an unwelcome sight, though.
The rooms stink of mold/ fungus - and the bed / mattress too. Had to keep the door and windows open for a long time to bring it to a bearable level. This, in spite of the fact that occupancy rate is quite high at the resort.
Food is available only during the specified times - if you are late, you may not get enough in time. If you decide to spend some extra time at the health club, you may end up with no breakfast. The table cloth could have been cleaner - we could see a lot of food stains and dried left overs from the previous users :-) Room service for food is available - but quite expensive. We had selected a package with all food free at the restaurant, but even with that, if you ask for food / beverages in room, it can be quite expensive.

The swimming pool looked good, with nice view from the deck. But when we got into the pool, found that it was quite dirty. The pool is filtered continuously by pumps, but found the filter chamber infested with frogs! Pool had a lot of floating debris! Bad decision to get into the pool - not a healthy pool at all. There is a walk through jacuzzi by the pool side that does not work - and no one has any idea when it worked last !

The list of facilities at the health club is quite impressive. The health club is apparently frequented by senior citizens on recommendations from doctors. There are a few medical packages too at the resort. But when you enter the health club, you get the feeling of entering a hospital, and not a spa - that is a great put off. The jacuzzi does not have hot water - only cold water. Apparently the hot water line has not been working for a long time, and everyone avoided an answer. Steam room was good. Sauna boxes were not working Full body massage was good. One could make out that the masseur had undergone some training. And female massagers are available too for lady visitors. We discovered that the masseurs double up as the sweepers in the facility - kind of a put off, from hygiene point of view. Although there was no stink - we were the first ones for the massage - there was a lot of reluctance from the staff in providing fresh, clean towels for the massage and later for the steam room.

We could feel that for anyone who does not have his own means of transport, it can be a problem - no convenient public transport nearby, and the resort does not have any pick up / drop off provision.

The staff were quite nice and accommodating.
Maybe we selected the wrong season - monsoon time - for the trip, and hence the negative experience. Considering the great environment /ambiance that they have, it could have been a much better experience.

This is just another standard resort, better than most I would suppose but still fall short on some important aspects. The rooms are all peeling paint and water marks. The beds are hard and small. The sheets and blankets are on the old side and the brown blankets are reminiscent of an old peoples home. But the place is clean, and that counts for a lot. So in summary the accommodation is simple, and functional but clean.

The location is pretty good, about 40 mins of the main Pune Mumbai highway.

The resort is also very well maintained and apart from open drains which can let off an nasty whiff, the lawns and trees make for a very pleasant atmosphere.

Food, is standard fare, tasty and plentiful. You will not go hungry, however, the meal timings are a little restrictive, so be prepared to ask for a meal earlier if you need, and they are likely to help. They did with us.

The facilities are pretty good, swimming pool was really quite nice, but no chairs or shade to allow lounging by the side of the pool. we did not make use of the spa or any other facilities.

What is so surprising however is that the place costs 3500 INR plus tax for the room. We thought it was too expensive, but then there are no other options that we know of!!! A captive market.

Dr Modi's is great to rest a weary head on the weekend, but not for a week long vacation! The location is excellent for cycling or hiking from Mumbai or Pune, <Matterhan is just up the road. Stop for Wada Pow on the corner of the old Pune Mumbai highway!!! Yum Yum!
