We 2 couples took the 2 night, 3 day package and were excited about our 1st trip to lonavala...
To start with insufficient sign boards exhibited and hence u can't reach the resort w/out asking bystanders.. nevertheless most locals are aware of the resort. The road to the resort is non existent and brace yourself for a mini jungle safari. The outside view of resort is "WOW" and presents itself to be a commodious property. Check in was smooth. As soon you enter the lift the damp smell of carpet starts hitting you and by the time you are settled inside your room you are almost dizzy with the dankness. Room size is adequate with a decent sofa and a table attached with a small balcony. Washrooms were well maintained too.
Resort has enough activities to keep u entertained for a day although you wish that the TT table and pool table was of better quality and TT rackets were not bald. There is a not so clean, shallow swimming pool and a heavily alagae infested green "lagoon". We were even advised to do fishing in the "lagoon".....!*$%.
Breakfast and Dinner buffet was not bad but not too good and Saturday night dinner was a chaos with guests running for hot chappatis.
All in all it was not a bad stay and my biggest grouse with the resort is it's unclean and damp carpets, non functioning AC control, room telephone, poorly maintained facilities.
Service was generally good with some chocolates and fruits served in the evening and buffet dinner delivered to room.
