The location of this Hotel is probably the best in Lonavala/Khandala. One can enjoy the beautiful panoramic view while enjoying meals in their restaurant. Or still better from the terrace. The Chairman's lawn is also another location to enjoy nature surrounding you. Monsoon is possibly better with water falls in full form but even without them the view is really... More
