I stayed at this resort for 1N with family on April 19, 2014. We had opted for AC Delux Cottage. We found the cottage neat & clean, spacious. There were 2 separate bedrooms (with attached toilets). The resort is conveniently located on Mumbai-Pune highway. The entire resort is lush green with paved roads, lot of play area for children. Within... More

There is no doubt that the MTDC Karla resort is a value for money location. First, unless you are traveling in summer, you can save some money by booking non AC rooms. Even in April we hardly used the AC in our room. Second, it would be nice if you have a car or vehicle when you come here (adequate... More

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.

In MTDC Karla you have ok sorts of rooms and cottages to stay. Its about 7 km away from lonavala. Location is just next to the river and you can enjoy boating from 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
