dont be mislead by the approach road to this resort. It is far from the maddening market place of lonavala. The place is very neat and clean, well maintained propery. The food and service are excellent. The facilities are in good condition : swimming pool, Gym, sauna, steam, TT, small garden, Pool. They also provide internet, video CDs, DVDs. Overall good Value for money. You will not feel cheated here.

- The place is quite decent. The rooms are clean and generally not bad. Although we found rusting in some places.
- Two single beds were put side-by-side to form a king size bed. As the mattresses were quite light, the beds kept moving apart which was quite an inconvenience.
- Food was ok; nothing too bad or special about it. The cloth on the dining table was not clean. The furniture of the restaurant is not up to the mark. It feels like a mid-range restaurant and not an upscale place that would expect for the price that we were charged.
- The location is not so good (approach road is quite bumpy).
- They had a decent collection of DVDs, but none of the 3 DVDs that we borrowed worked. In fact, two of the VCDs/DVDs were missing from the boxes. They don't seem to care about it.
- The swimming-pool was ok. Again, it did not have an upscale feel to it.
- The pool-table, TT etc. were not well maintained and were being used by their security/room-service staff for their entertainment.

In summary, our crib is that the place was not worth the money we spent on it. If you are spending anywhere between 2-3k, its probably a very good deal. For 8k per night, we don't think we got our money's worth.

We chanced upon this place through random googling & thankfully it was a very nice find.

Pros:
- The resort is atop a semi-hill. Pretty secluded, hence is a good place to unwind & getaway.
- Relatively new property, so is well maintained. The resort & rooms are very neat.
- Rooms are provided with all amenities- refrigerator, LCD, DVD, locker.
- Has gym, sauna & pool facilities.
- We had a package which included all 3 meals in a day ( buffet). This was pretty much the icing on the cake.
- Located at a decent distance from the market & other attractions.


Cons:
- The approach to the resort is a tad bit confusing & the roads bad. Actually there's no road, more like small stones & pebbles.


Suggestion:
- The staff though courteous, could be trained more better.

** Compared to most 4/5* Resorts this was a definitely worth it. Places like Fariyas, Dukes & Avion simply overcharge & are merely cashing on their name. They no longer are maintained well, nor is their food that fantastic.
