An absolute NO NO for this resort…..
If u are planning to visit Koti resort, u are making a big mistake….
I booked three rooms in this resort in the month of June, 2012 and had a pathetic stay there…..first of all, if u are planning that u will visit Shimla Mall Road in ur leisure time, u are mistaken….because it is 17 kms from shimla mall road ....
This is actually not a resort……it is a hotel…..its owners don’t actually know what a resort means….they are just utilizing the land purchased by them because they know whether they provide facilities or not, people will definitely come during vacations……
The Room Tariff (Rs. 10500/- per room + Taxes) is not worth at all. Even “Room Number Tags” are not fixed on the room doors. U will enter ur room with guesswork whether it is ur room or not…….no bath tubs in the bathroom……even u will not find soap dish in the bathroom, which may be said to be the bare minimum facility which a hotel should provide…..the towel and the bed sheets were not clean at all.
Not safe for kids and children…..when we were there, construction and renovation work were going on everywhere…..kids can skid at some places because the hotel staff has covered the construction portion on the floors with carpets…...they have put some swings in the park area but the park doesnt have boundaries or hedges, so it can be very dangerous for the children as well as for the adults also.
Yes, no doubt, the food is good….the buffet and dinner they are providing is good……affirmative remarks…..
Though the staff is cooperative and helpful but the resort is not managed well at all!!!
They have one room with table tennis table and a carrum table.
Regarding the swimming pool facility, and we were highly disappointed when we were deprived of that facility. We were not allowed to avail that facility just because we were not carrying swimming costumes. We tried to persuade the General Manager (Mr. Ranbeer Arya) of the Resort that when we are carrying our “shorts”, he should allow us to avail the facility, but he is such an arrogant man that he didn’t allow us to go to pool. I must mention here that we have had our stay in so many hotels and resorts in and outside the country and nowhere we were deprived of the pool facility just because we were not carrying swimming costumes!!!! Not even 5-star hotels have ever denied this facility to us....!!!
We told the General Manager that if it is the rule of his resort that no person will be allowed to go to pool without the swimming costumes, he should have mentioned it on the website of the resort or they should make the provision for the same at the resort on payment basis……..still he refused..........Going to Shimla mall road just to buy the swimming costumes is the idea which one cannot even think of....
In the end, I must say that if one wants to waste his money, it is the best resort where u can waste your money……
