“Felt like on Cloud 9”
Reviewed 17 August 2011

I stayed here from Aug 13th to 15th 2011 with a family of 21 and it turned out to be a perfect family reunion for us. We stayed at their new 3BHK Bungalow no.1 which has all the amenities. It has a grand entrance with lawns on both the sides. A big hall which has 2 big sofas from where u get a panoramic view of the Amby valley road. The hall has a chess board, Table tennis, Cricket bat, Dining table, attached bathroom and a room followed by Sauna and Steam bath rooms.. Each room has a T.V.(Sony bravia 32"), A.C. and a bed & can accomodate 5 ppl easily. It also has a hugh lobby(Perfect for taking pictures).
The best part about this bungalow is the living room which has a 72 MM BENQ projector with Philips DVD player & speakers. U can play music(the loudest you can), Watch movies, dance and play cards. The only probelm was every room had a small water leakage which i am sure will be taken care of in the near future. Also the tarriff was on the expensive side.
The food was decent. Can't complain much. They had organised special events in the evening( only on weekends) with a DJ party.
Overall we had a fantastic stay at Cloud 9. If you are planning for a family reunion/throwing a party, this place would be an ideal choice.

we stayed here for a night during peak summers yet the place was so cool and pleasant it was unbelievable. The location is good with individual cottages. almost all cottages have a spectacular view though the top most are the best but most expensive too. The hotel is all vegetarian which is a drawback if your a non-vegetarian though the veg food was pretty good too.

I saw some mixed reviews on this resort and could not make up my mind whether this was worth taking a risk on a long weekend which is hard earned. However since Lonavla is the worst exploited tourist destination where millions of people flock on weekends esecially during the rainy season it has kept away some of the people who love tranquility and peace in midst of nature. So although there are a lot of hotels in lonavla they are in and around the busy and crowded area of Kumar resort junction, finding a resort where you can hear the drop of a pin is hard to find. Cloud 9 is one such resort located at a beautiful spot, on the way to Amby valley. Located on Amby Valley city road, 4 kms after Lion's point, and 8 kms before Amby valley, at a height of 1500 ft above Lonavala which gives a good view and cool experience.
Although as rightly mentioned in some of the reviews, the cottage rooms are too small, but are well furnished and are probably just enough for a couple but not for a family with kids. The area around the cottages has good garden space. The resort has quite a lot of rooms located at a height above the cottage rooms which are delux rooms and ther are slightly bigger. We were luck to get a 1bhk bunglow which they also offer on rent which can give good space to live with your family. These are generally family cottages and are well maintained too with space to park your car, small lawn to play etc.
The service is decent and the food was good enough. The best part was the tandoor where they cooked hot tandoori rotis which my son freaked out on. They have buffet which is included in the package. The tariffs look expensive but since they are the only resort in that area which is located at a good spot, they are charging the premium.
We were fortunate to get rains and experince the clouds which changed the entire mood and brought a cool breeze which cooled off that night too.
Overall not a bad place to explore, specially away from the mad rush in lonavla. Please venture only if you have a vehicle and mind you the ghat has some steep turns to watch out for. You can visit Amby valley and only have the pleasure of seeing it from outside as it has restricted access. It is about 8 km from the resort. There is one adventure park close to Amby valley where you can spend some time and money too :-)
Its got a bumpy jungle ride in open jeep and some remote controlled cars for kids. Unfortunately the cars were not availble when we went.
Best time to visit is in rainy season (only in weekdays as weekends are crowded in lonavla) or just after rainy season after the bushy dam fever is over so that you can drive smoothly past that stretch.

The place is wonderful with wood house cottages like a house boat in kashmir.
Food- I would say it serves the best vegetarian food in lonavala. The feeling of hot spicy food in fog is just great

Overall a must visit

I booked this place after looking at their website which is a clear case of overpromise & underdeliver.
The service is very rude, the rooms very small, located very oddly.
Other than good views there is nothing else this place has to offer.
Its also very expensive for what it has to offer.
