This property has an extreme advantage because of the view that it offers. It is definitely on the expensive side but I guess so are most properties in Khandala. Definitely a must visit if you are around

Cons:- Quite expensive compared to the facilities offered. Wifi is chargeable at ₹500 per day. Needs some repairs. When we were there the restaurant was leaking rain water. It was a very unpleasant experience... More

Must stay place in Khandala during monsoon. Hotel has awesome views of waterfall during monsoon. Hotel staff was co-operative and service was good. We had no problem with food quality. They provided good variety in both veg and non veg. Room was clean. Overall well maintained property. Look forward to visit again.
