Reviewed 9 March 2012

We are 55+ couple and had travelled all the way from Ahmedabad 370 kms to this resort in selfdriven vehicle. We were extremely tired and badly needed a good bath of hot water. On reaching the resort we found very indifferent welcome from the reception. We found no hot water in the bathroom. On complaining they tried to repair the line and did it at about 10-00 pm by which time it was too late for bath for us. Next morning again it was running cold water. We complained to house-keeping, and reception, we even told them that we will be checking out due to this treatment, but the person on the other end of the line didnot respond properly. Then we finally decided to leave the resort and curtailed our stay. Will they return two precious days of our life?

This is a very big property and has quite a few number of rooms. The property has lot of open spaces and greenery and a large central gathering area. The Resort organized evening get to gather every day, which included different events for all ages and snack, which made it exciting. The room buildings are located on a hilly terrain which gives a different getup to each buildings. Overall the rooms were big and spacious, equipped with TV and AC. The bathrooms were decently clean and all requirements were full filled. The food used to be in a coommon area and mostly buffet. Due to large number of rooms and its popularity, the food serving area would often get crowded when the resort was full. It would be a chaos during all three meals and the resort would not be able to cope up with the crowd. Other than that, the resort had common playing areas which would hardly be free during peak season. I would recommend this place for going around with family. But since it is has some hilly terrain, care to be take in case you have handicapped guests along.

Room Tip: Take the rooms facing the innser garden of the hotel. Other side had no views.

Khanvel Resort is approximately 35 kms from Silvassa and a hidden gem, one can say that without any doubt.

We stayed during the Christmas eve week and the activities/menu varieties were excellent for relaxation.

We stayed in the Super Deluxe Room category which has 2 Double Beds and a Sofa-come-Bed accommodating a max up to 4 adults and 2 children along with a huge terrace. This room was extremely spacious. Although their website mentions 24 hrs. hot and cold water, hot water is only available during morning and only after 11:00 am which can be bothersome if one needs to leave early for sight-seeing.

Sleeping on the bed wasn't such a good experience as one might experience aches/pain. There was no toothpaste or brush provided in the room and the size of the soap provided was small.

The resort has a swimming pool (baby pool as well), spa, discotheque, etc. There's also high tea (included in some packages) where one can have biscuits, pakoras (coated with bengal gram batter and deep fried, also known as fritters) anything from the snacks menu from 5:00 till 6:30 pm.

Menu is excellent with vegetarian varieties only (can be difficult for non-vegetarians) and is definately VFM without any doubt.

The resort had activities during the Christmas week like DJ night (discotheque), magic show and Raj Kapoor night (clown acting like the late showman of Bollywood) near the pool area from 6:30 pm onward with a combination of continental, chinese and indian varieties. One would also find chaat/starter live counters.

It would be an understatement to say that this place was very happening during the Christmas week!! The property is excellent (with 15 acres of huge space), extremely peaceful and great for a night walk (We were roaming till 2:00 am twice after our dinner enjoying the chilly winter.

I was extremely satisfied with the stay and look forward the next time as well. Kudos to the whole team for managing the whole situation extremely well despite the rush.

I will surely recommend this resort to my colleagues, friends and relatives.

Cheers!! :)

Khanvel is very good destination for weekend from mumbai. It takes about 3 hrs drive from mumbai.
The roomst are good and the food is best over here. You will enjoy your leisure time here, spend some time in pool.

from breakfast to dinner round the clock, food is great.....

near by there is a lake where you can have 30mins boating...... its a huge lake and you will enjoy the calm and silent ride.

have visited this place for new years i.e 30th dec 2011 till 1st jan 2012. the property is big, peaceful and very well maintained. the staff is extremely helpful, supportive n courteous. @night 11 also thy got my room and washrooms cleaned within 5 mins of calling them which is rare in most resorts. while u r on the property any service u ask for is made available quickly, Swimming pool is very nice and the SPA is simply SUPERB!! they have huge lawns and we stayed in cottages so we had lawns just outside our cottages. you can carry ur own badminton & cricket kits if in group or if not then the management will provide you this also :) the surroundings are very calm and on just 5 mins walk you have a small deer park. to end with - the USP of the resort is its FOOD. overall wonderful & amazing experience.

Room Tip: Cottages are too gud with loads of privacy!!

It is a good property for 1N or max 2N stay.
One take a rikshwa to Khanvel (cost abt Rs 400/-) from Vapi Railway Station to reach the resort.

We went to Khanvel Resort for our marriage anniversary.
The sad part is that they do not entertain any special request like flower bed decoration or Cake or anything on that lines...

The entrance of the resort was just like a normal hotel & reception desk was like – you are here because you want to be here.
No warm welcome no glass of water nor a welcome drink was offered.

The resort is nicely located with excellent view.
Please ensure that there is no group coming at the property.
The day when we went , there were about 350 people & Resort did nothing for normal residential customers like us despite multiple reminders.
There is absolutely nothing outside the resort, hence had no option but to feel like having lunch/dinner/breakfast like a school kid & then fighting for a place to sit just like Indian Marriages.
Resort can handle not more than 200 people at a time.

The food was excellent. I am not sure if they serve non-veg food, since they served only Veg food during our stay - which was great to taste.
Mostly people who like Gujarati style food will like it the most. They had some live counters like Pani-puri, Pizza & Alu-Chole for Dinner & dosa for Breakfast.

There are few places to see near this Resort which can be covered with your own vehicle.
If you depend on Resort to book the same for you the charges are about Rs : 950/- for a place which is 20KM away from resort.

They also have a nice swimming pool, (broken) Pool table, a place to play volley ball/cricket, Carrom & Table Tennis board.
At night they arrange for DJ as well – which was decent.
They also have a in-house SPA with timings of 10AM to 8PM ! – we didn’t use it.
Room service is not worth mentioning – since a lime soda delivery took 40 mins !

There is another resort next to This resort called "Golden pond resort" whcih has better views than this resort & it appeared that they offered the services similar to that of what Khanvel Resort offers - since the DJ which they played was audiable even to us !

I would recommend this hotel for 1N or 2N stay travelling by their own car (if planning for sight-seeing as well)
& can ensure that you get a room in their new property & no group booking.

The also have bunglows for large gruop which are better than Club rooms - where we stayed.

Room Tip: make sure no group is visting on your date of travel. Pick the room only from New propoerty. & t...
