We visited MTDC Karla on 16-17th August'14. We has booked two rooms - one Non A/C garden view room and another A/C cottage. The A/C cottage was well maintained (except the stained bedsheets) and offered a comfortable stay. The best part was that the cottage had a living room along with a bed room. Hot water was present 24/7. The... More

It was raining cats and dogs, all we did is just relax by doing nothing. Pros: + Cosy and Comfortable + Bathrooms were decent. Good fixtures, hot... More

The vast green surroundings of this resort away from the maddening overcrowded central Lonavala, will make one be with nature. A leisurely walk along the Tree lined well paved road within the resort will refresh your spirits. Ample greenery all over will sooth your eyes and the cool fresh breeze gives you a real hill station holiday feeling. My family... More

I visited this resort for a short one day family outing. The check in process was smooth. The resort was crowded on the weekend. We had booked a NON-AC Garden cottage. This resort has many cottages surrounded by tall trees. The climate was excellent - Rains had not yet arrived and it was partly cloudy. The main attraction of the... More

So we stayed at The MTDC resort, Karla where I have previously stayed... More

I experienced how everything changes with your perspective. This is a serene property and you can have great fun with a little bit planning. A very nice and relaxing resort with distantly placed rooms give you perfect peace of mind. USP ofcourse is the waterpark, which is amazing, full with lots of rides & reasonably well maintained. We booked a... More

Three of us retirees love to meet up every month in some resorts close to Mumbai. Last month we decided to visit Karla. Our experience there was 'almost satisfied'. The property is beautiful. The cottages are well designed and at discreet distances from each other to maintain a sense of exclusivity. Getting to the cottages from the reception is very... More
