I visited the resort with my wife and stayed for 2 nights - Sunday- Monday in off season. The blue country resort at Panchgani is about 1.5 kms from the main market which works well if you are ready for a good-length walk. The walk to the market is quite serene though. The resort is equipped with a swimming pool, which looked good but we didn’t venture near it as it weather was too cold.
The rooms are spacious and some of them overlook the valley, which in the current climate (it’s the start of monsoon so it’s cloudy and misty!) lends a lovely sight. We had a problem with the room door, which was not sorted even till we left the resort (donno if it’s sorted yet, or someone’s stuck inside). So, many-a-times we were left locked inside going through eager moments wondering if we’d have to climb down from the window (thankfully it did not happen).
The bathroom was spacious, but somehow, always remained wet – which my wife hates. Despite instructing the hotel guys to dry it, it never happened.
Service is strictly OK, we didn’t find anyone going out of the way to make us feel at home.
We had booked this place being Club Mahindra (CM) members, but this resort is way off the mark by CM standards (if there are any). If CM wants people to pay through their nose for the vacations, then they better pull up their socks.
