First (or perhaps main) issue is accessibility. You need to first immediate left from Lonavala lake. From there the resort staff can guide you. The interior roads are really bad, narrow, broken and winding. But once you are inside the resort the ambience is really calm and soothing. With no traffic noise, this resort is a nice weekend get-away from... More

I had recently gone to this resort for a conference.. It's location is not good.. Being a resort in lonavala there should be some great views, but it doesn't have those. Rooms are nice.. Food also is good.. The only turn off with this place is its location.. Food I must say its highly overpriced

Poor food, stinking room and not infant friendly place.....Visited this place in November on a weekend. It was packed as expected but service was quite poor. Rooms are also not very good. I would recommend to pay up and stay in Della or Fariyas rather than staying here and wasting money....

After a lot of research and thanks to a friend's reco, zoned in on the Velvett Country Hill Resort for a 2 nights stay in Khandala/Lonavala. It is priced resort-style which means for the same price one could actually spend two nights at a 5 star property in a metro like Mumbai. The reservation process was smooth and after a... More

Also , The cleanliness of the resort is questionable and the worst experience was the food . Breakfast and dinner were inclusive in our package but we were okay being served a la... More

Beautiful resort set amidst green forest. Ideal location to have fun with the family. Visited with inlaws and my 2yr old kid. Rooms very spacious and beautiful view of forest, one can listen to bird chirping and river flowing early in the morning. Pleasant surrounding helps to relax from mundane life. Food spread is average but quality is good. beautiful... More

We were here in January. We had the Velvett almost to ourselves. Some construction was next door and the night-watchmen's whistles made an eerie sound. We walked to the nearby village to visit a small Hindu Temple and shop for jewelry. The gardens were quite nice. Many flowering bushes and trees. The kitchen staff prepared special meals for American palates.... More
