“gr8 location, helpful staff but ..”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2012

As expected, it was a great location, very scenic, esp with monsoon clouds , the drizzle, and green valley intoxicating one's mind. Wish rest of the retreat matched that. The rooms were not well kept. We had booked standard rooms, which had excellent view, but had very old box TVs, toiletries were cheap, bathroom curtains very not clean. Food was average. However the staff was very helpful, trying their best to make our stay pleasant. They shifted us to better rooms which had better (lcd) TVs, but rest was just the same. Kitchen staff was also was very helpful and did their best. Wish after the Fern addition, things would have been classier..

It was my pleasure to stay in this beautiful home away home from 8thof June to 10th of June this year.......by luck rain started and I had a gr8 scenic view in the valley from our room (Room no. 118). To relax from this hectic life these 2 days helped me a lot. Very comfortable and pleasant stay....thanks to all the staff members.

We went to Mahabaleshwar with a Bunglow booking which got cancelled at the last moment. That's when we chanced upon Surya Retreat - the location enthralled us - view of the valley was breathtaking and the rooms were exquisite. The experience was awesome - the early morning at the resort gives an unmatched high. Then a trip to the river valley below and a dip in the waterfall gives the best possible therapeutic feel to the mind!

But beware - Mahabaleshwar is a strictly Monsoon only destination; if you want to enjoy Surya Retreat make sure you choose the right season.

Room Tip: Take a room as high as possible and as near to the center of the flank (near reception) as possible

As normal Mumbaikar who wants to get away from a hectic life of Mumbai and want to relax with their loved ones then i have to say Surya R It is the best Hotel in Mahabaleshwar with superb Valley View from each room The clouds literally descent into your room during rains throughout the day you hear different kind of birds like Barbets, Woodpeckers, Cuckoos, Thrushes, Honey-suckers , Sunbird's engage in duet calls all long the valley soothing to the ears off course , location is ideal as you are way from the crowd but still close to Market ,lake, Mapro Gradens Points etc Excellent Rooms - Spacious & Airy only disappointment was with washrooms i hope they improve on them , Food Hmm You get Non-Veg/Veg food here which is included in your package (API plan unlimited ) Breakfast are always better with lots of options a lot better then lunch and Dinner, i hope they come up with more varieties for lunch and dinner improve on quality .

Now it is Fern - Surya Retreat so i expect more improvements in the future which will make our stay at Fern-Surya Retreat more pleasurable ,

Overall value for money v-Good its recommended .

We stayed for 2 nights with AP Plan. Hotel is well maintained and swimming pool is nice. Great view of the green jungle from the rooms. Very quite as the rooms are facing the jungle and not the road.

Food was alright, nothing facny, mostly North Indian food. Breakfast was very good and many options like eggs, bread, corn flakes, pohe, Idly/vada sambar, parathas, upma, tea, coffee, OJ..unlimited as part of AP plan. Some rooms are equipped with LCDs...ask for a room with newer diggs. Higher the floor better the view but then no lift so got to walk up and down the floors...

Staff was very nice and helpful. Hotel is 5 km from Mahabaleshwar town, 3 KM from Venna lake...

certainly recommended for anyone who wants to stay away from crowds/town...

Room Tip: ask for a room with LCD, they are newly done and have better interiors...
