Don't go there for water park; highly non-hygienic, absolutely dirty! boating is available near to resort (black dirty water but should not bother you as u r in boat) Service is not to... More

Discovered MTDC Karla while exploring stay options at Lonavala / Khandala – from Mumbai, Karla is a little distance after Lonavala; but, really, it can... More

We were surprised, very pleasantly at that. MTDC Karla is a huge, huge property, lined with well maintained tress and plants. The resort is well designed, with... More

Pros : I could hardly see any. Cons : - Room # 53, didn't had Extension Phone. - Looks very isolated at night. - Rooms are not... More

The hotel is away from the humdrum of the city, giving you a peaceful setting to enjoy your holidays. The rooms are well-maintained and come with modern facilities. Food served at the restaurant was good, but the service was a bit slow. They also have boating facilities in the resort. Overall, the resort is a good option if you want... More
