Rooms in this resort are ok only, but location is really good. its around 7-8 Km away from Lonaval Railway station, so you can get the auto from station to resort. water park is good here, you can enjoy boating here.

They have the newly developed water park which is decent and can be enjoyed. Rooms are big but old fashioned. Food is not available in rooms.... More

We stayed for 2 nights at MTDC Karla resort during Nov'13 diwali holidays. Best thing about this resort is the location and size of the resort. Rooms are average, I would say but good by MTDC standards. We did boating in the river inside the resort and lot of place for morning walk. Food is average, as expected from MTDC.... More

I have visited this place many times before. This time we booked a Non AC cottage, which also has an extra bed in a small drawing room- ideal for a family of 3. However they have deluxe cottages also which are equivalent to a 2 BHK home as it has 2 bedrooms, 2 toilets, 2 balconies and one big hall;... More

Similar to other MTDC properties; this one also has its own advantages and disadvantages. Just wasted excellent locational advantage. No service. Exorbitant government taxes even for Non AC Cottages. Large spaces and children park. It has a good inbuilt water park but again not maintained well. Restaurant at waterpark is not functional. Very limited food options at the restaurant. Huge... More

Stayed in deluxe cottage. Room was big enough but old furnished. No proper and sufficient toiletries available in bathroom. Restaurant was OK, but for dinner, if you do not want SET dinner, then also you have to pay Rs.299/-, its minimum. Tourism officer, please, look in to the matter. We gone out in No. 1 restaurant of Lonavala and our... More

We heard about this holiday destination and planned our family trip for a night`s stay.We booked the best available Executive Deluxe cottage in the campus. The accommodation is spacious with two bed rooms and good for the family.Although reasonably decent and clean,the bath rooms in general and the water taps in particular need more attention. The annoying part of the... More

I went to MTDC resort with my family and the rooms were very spacious but they were looking very old and not properly maintained. Bathrooms are just OK. Cost wise cottages are value for money. There was no room service and restaurant was not good. We opted to go out to Lonavala to have our food. There is water sports... More
