I have been visiting Chiplun-Guhagar-Velneshwar area for the last 17 years. I have passed by this hotels many times, but this year I finally decided to try this hotel. And I was not disappointed. This used to be a Taj property and this shows in the facility overall as well as the behavior of the staff.
The place does have an upmarket feel, though purely from a v-f-m perspective, the price should have been a 5-6k (and not 7k that I paid).
The place (including lawns, swimming pool etc) is well maintained, rooms are clean and restaurant serves decent food. The staff is super-courteous. The rooms show signs of ageing, but I wont deduct any points for that as that did not affect my overall experience.
And now the view - what you see from the balcony/window is cool! The views of the Vashishti river and the valley is nice.
All in all a good option for frequent travelers to the Chiplun region. For others, it is a good once in a while option to rest and rejuvenate.More
