“Good Family Time at a small place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Saputara is a very small hill station near Nashik ... about 80 kms, 2 hours drive. The hill station has all the basic items of Indian hill station ...... a lake, cable car, sunset and sunrise points, echo point, museum, artist village, nursery. All site seeing items are very close to each other. You need a max of two days to see every thing leisurely. Saputara is a nice quaint place for family outing. It is a Vegetarian town i.e. no non-veg. Also no alcohol anywhere in town.
The hotel we stayed .... Aakar Lords' Inn is a decent hotel. Services are little slow but rooms are nice. The only issue was with there Dinner service. First day, the food was cold and fell short. Many vessels were empty by 9.30 PM.
Also I wanted to take Shirodara in the hotel, but this facility was not provided. They asked me to go to nearby hotel Shilpi, which is a bigger hotel.
The hotel has only one lift (elevator). I feel they should have two lifts. It is risky for senior citizens, if lift is out of order. Also the quality of lift is poor. Hotel owner has spent lot of money on the building, but make a big mistake on choosing a bad lift.
All in all, the place, hotel, site seeing all was fine.

Room Tip: Avoid room # 212 and similar rooms as the view from these rooms is very bad..... people defacing on...

We had done a group booking for this hotel over internet / mails, it was total hassle free with quick and proper response, no problem in booking.

This is the best hotel of Saputara with great location, all rooms are lake view. Rooms are very well furnished, bathroom also very well maintained. Hotel lobby, interior all good and well maintained. Staff very co-operative and always ready to listen to you.

Swimming pool well maintained but its small seems only for kids, gym should have more equipment. Other indoor games were ok.

Restaurant is good, only veg, buffet menu should have different variety. We had stayed for 2 Nights hence found items repetitive. Food quality is good.

Overall it was a pleasure stay at Lords Inn.

Room Tip: All rooms lake facing.

Saputara is a wonderful place for peace and beauty lovers. We had planned for a family trip Mumbai to Saputara in April 2012. We were 3 couples with 4 kids aged between 1 to 5. We wanted to stay in a place where the rooms were well equipped and furnished; there were recreation facilities such as a pool table, a swimming pool and good food. Trust me, Aakar Lords Inn provided us all that was expected out of a nice 4 star hotel. We had booked a room which had a Jacuzzi in it. Our check in was at around 2 PM and the staff arranged for the food for us in the restaurant (there was not much occupancy at that time). The front office manager was very courteous and polite and explained us the tariffs and facilities very clearly. Since we had booked 3 rooms, we had got a very good deal. The swimming pool is pretty big and very well maintained. There is a garden as well. The recreation facilities such as pool and table tennis are very well maintained. There is massage facility also available, but you have to do the booking in advance. The best part of my stay was that the Jacuzzi in my room was not working. So after making an attempt to repair it, they decided to shift me in a suite room where the tariff was almost twice as compared to the room which we actually booked. And trust me, that room was simply awesome. It was a twin room with large LCD tv. A bedroom with another TV. And the bathroom was not less than the size of a large room. It was really fantastic experience and they did not charge me anything extra for this room. It was so large that all six of us (3 couples) were sitting in our suite room till late in the night. It is the best hotel in the whole of Saputara. Trust me; if you can shell out some money, this is the place where you should plan your stay. I recommend it to everyone!

Room Tip: The rooms with a lake-side view are very good.

The Hotel lives up to it's reputation, it's the best in Saputara, but there are not many hotels in Saputara. Rooms are spacious with decent views,and a good shower, although the TV reception was marred by the monsoon weather.
The (vegetarian only) restaurant - is very clean,and staff were very attentive. Amazingly though, for the prices charged - there was no facility for tea or coffee in the room.
We planned to stay for two nights, but left after one night - as the attractions we planned to visit were all closed for the monsoon season.This was a disappointing surprise - as most internet sites say the best time to visit is June to November. During the monsoon heavy clouds restrict the supposed spectacular views - and the temperature drops considerably.

Saputara is the only hill station in South Gujarat & is near to my Hometown Surat! I have stayed there for 1 Night with friends ! I must say that Aakar Lords Inn is the best hotel in Saputara as of now ! I usually travel Saputara almost every monsoon to enjoy the scenic drive & lush green Hill forest of Saputara! This is the first time I have enjoyed a better accommodation along with the beauty of Saputara. The check in was smooth & the front desk was really cooperative & friendly ! The gym ,The pool , Table tennis, Pool table were upto the mark. It is a real 4* experience! The food was good for those who prefer Vegetarian food ! [Non Veg is not offered in any hotel of Saputara] . The overall experience was good ! I will surely come back again here!!!

Room Tip: Must try the room with Jacuzzi ! All the rooms are facing to the Pool area mainly !
