Finalised this place for reunion with friends and family after going through the reviews. I am happy I chose this place. It’s a small property but exactly the way it has been portrayed. Service is really good for this kind of property and that is clearly the highlight. Food is also tasty. Staff is competent and rooms are nice. There were too many school kids for day trip and we thought it may ruin our get together but all their arrangements were separate and didn’t interfere. I think it’s a good place for reunions and small get together.

The location of the property is good but a lot needs to be done to improve the overall quality of stay. Nothing is provided unless asked for including basic toileteries in the room. regular cleaning of the corridoor was not done to cater for the karate camp that was in progress. Very expensive for the services included and provided.

I had arranged a birthday party for my wife at Zara Resort, Lonavala. My brother in law had suggested me this property. It was a very nice experience. the staff is very courteous and polite and well mannered. They organised it very efficiently. The food was also very good. Its amidst a very green environment . There are lots of trees and also have small pocketed areas where kids can play. We played games like kick football, baseball, badminton etc. The pool was a little unclean. The rooms are very spacious and are really cosy. Its a nice place where one can arrange small get togethers or parties. I had a great time.

I celebrated my birthday with my family and friends at Zara resort, Khandala. It was a surprise get -together arranged by my husband. I must say I was super impressed with the staff who were hands on at all times, very friendly, and organized everything very efficiently. The bonfire, and music DJ and the natural landscape were like a bonus.

The rooms are spacious with great views. They have these small pockets for outdoor sports and the kids in my family enjoyed playing there. I would say for family get togethers, weekend parties this cosy resort nestled in the green environs is an ideal choice. Highly recommended for group outings. plus the proximity to Mumbai and Pune makes it a perfect weekend spot.

A gem of a resort in Khandala, well priced, backed by excellent service and great food, the pool is amazing, for a short break from Pune or Mumbai i Guess this is an excellent hotel, the overall landscaping is great , I would definitely love to visit the place again as it is great welcome break.

Room Tip: Impressed with what i got
