When you hear the word MTDC, many people cringe at the thought of the cleanliness and quality. Yes, this place is no luxury resort, far from it. But when you get an a/c suite cottage for 4 people for 2.5k, it is a very good deal! The property is located way outside lonavala, so if you intend to go around... More

We visited MTDC Karla after 5 years. The resort is almost same as we remembered from last time. This time, visiting with our son. It's a huge property, with multiple options for rooms available. You can ask for alternate rooms (of same price) when checking in. For bigger groups/families, to smaller accommodations, everything is available. You can book the resort... More

Had been with family in Nov 2014. MTDC property at karla is huge with lush greenery and includes a water park. There is a wax museum on the way from mumbai just before karla, if interested visit it before entering Mtdc karla to avoid tolls. Kids enjoyed the karla water park, almost a day was spent at the water park.... More

Been here before during the monsoons. Nice secluded location with ample greenery and space around for all types of activities. Visit during the monsoon a few years back and now, there has been a vast improvement in Service and maintenance standards. The restaurant food quality is on par with other good restaurant. Well worth the money spent. Weekends tend to... More

Most of the Cottages have been renovated, the Mattresses have been changed, the Flooring is New & Good, the Furniture has also been... More

This is my second visit to this place. Though rooms are old & MTDC staff was putting their best effort to maintain. U cannot expect luxury stay as it is Government undertaking. Food was Ok at Indrayani Restaurant. Good ambience with trees & greenery. Peaceful place, definitely visit next time whenever possible.

Myself and wife stay there in the month of September 2015 and it was a great experience. We also went to the authentic kerala massage which rejuvenates your body and soul. There is also a water park which is available to people staying in the resort at concessional rates. Although the maintenance is not upto the mark it nevertheless and... More

Whether travelling with adults or kids, please avoid this place. The accommodation is poor, not very clean and mosquito infested. do not be surprised if you even encounter some creepy crawlers in your room. There is no room service and the cottages are so far flung that you need a vehicle to drive to the restaurant and have a cup... More
