Location: It is little off from the main road. One needs to actually walk around 2kms to reach. We called to check if they have any transportation available, but they provide only shuttles at fixed timings (10.30 AM and 5.30 PM) Though the official time for check-in was 2 PM, but we reached early. They were helpful and accommodated us...

I visited the resort a second time after 17 years and the place has developed nicely. Great ambience, a great view and good service. The rooms are nicely spread, although all of them do not have a view of the valley. The new restaurant near the swimming pool is perfectly placed. The food is good. They have activities like trekking,...

Definitely one of the finest hotels in Mahabaleswar! I visited in the monsoon season and reached the hotel on a sat evening.

fantastic food, very courteous staff , make sure you choose the right room, the maple rooms are the best. Only one problem is that this place is right above a village where every few hours they recite the prayers on the loudspeaker.
