Went there with my wife and two kids. It seems quite far if you go there for the first time and that too, after sundown. For people from Pune, the road from Nasrapur junction on NH4 till 20 ~22 kms inside is very bad. If you have a vehicle with a higher ground clearance, it will help. The resort as... More

Around 35km from Pune, Balaji Resort is indeed a very nice place to plan a weekend. Resort/Room was very clean and people attending were very informative. Food was very delicious. All the sports facilities- Carrom,TT,Pool were nicely maintained.

Situated close to Pune, off 25 km from NH-4 near Baneshwar phata, Balaji resort is a nice place, daintily decorated. It has nice spacious rooms with good decor and clean bathrooms. The place has lot of space for groups to hang around and chit-chat/have drinks over a weekend. But the food doesnt have many options and is quite pricey. Overall... More

It is at 50 min distance from Katraj and located in Tal, Velhe. They have very big property. Swimming pool, party hall, lot of space for car parking and enough space for outdoor games. Route towards this resort in rainy season is scenic. Green mountains, small brooks on the road is treating to your eyes. They have got very good... More

We stayed in a cottage with capacity of 6. which was very Nice. Food was nice. Swimming tank was also very clean. All the sports facilities-Carron,TT,Pool were upto the mark. Surely its not a five star but its really good for 2 days stay. Management is also good and polite. Very relax stay with fresh environment.

Bad experience with group accommodation, poor service, the manager was very rude to talk we left the place at midnight @2.00 AM due to arrogant behavior. "Eat and sleep before 12:00 AM or we will leave the dog" This was very unacceptable and took the decision to leave off. Website is not updated specially the tariff.(rate in actual are different)

But unfortunately Balaji Resort could not stand upto them. On every front there was sheer disappointment. Basic dishe like Kadi-khichadi which was not there in the menu card but still they... More

Good location, away from crowd still just an hour and half far from Pune, we thought it would be a perfect weekend destination. When we reach the place, we were greeted with a big board “Due to staff unavailability, No room service will be provided”. The staff did their best to serve but I didn’t find any supervisor or manager... More
