“Comfortable and scenic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

We arrived at Lavasa on a near empty tank of petrol and found that the local pump shuts at 5 pm! Ekaanth was the only hotel with a room in Lavasa due to a no show. Later we found out that it was also the best hotel inLavasa. Had a bit of a problem swiping my card, but the reception people were kind enough to let us check in without payment. There is a nature trail developed by the hotel which is a divine walk cum trek. All in all an enjoyable stay.

We visited this place yesterday only. Great breath taking views. One of Salman khan's favorite place to stay and relax. Awesome location. Not so luxurious like Fortune, but still very well maintained. I find it a bit pricey though, but it is worthy to a certain extent. Highly disappointing thing was the food. Not 100% satisfied with the food it offered in the world class restaurants. Staff was very co-operative and ready to help. Highly recommended for the stay, but for food, you may like to try Fortune and Mercure and other options located near Pemorande. !! :)

we visited lavasa last year in july..it was awesome ans especially view we got from hotel ekaant. but food was very average and much expensive for its price. no warmth and hospitality in staff of ekaant. so many celerbrity guest stay at ekaant and may b thats why staff has very cold attitude for other guests. same breakfast menu was there for 3 consecutive days with very minor change and no one to help u out if u need something.

Room Tip: all rooms are same and give same view

It has a nice location and looks good but avoid this restaurant. We went there because one of friend suggested us. But the service is slow and they don't listen or acknowledge what you order, the food is overpriced and not very good at all, isn't cooked properly ex Rice.
During this visit, three family member ordered same dish and chef served food combined together. This is by far the worst meal I have had and the most expensive in Pune that too vegetarian. Back to the review, this place appears to be upmarket based on the prices they charge. The food was of very poor quality. Air-condition wasn’t working in the month of May
If you order any particular dish, they will serve main content of the dish in small bowl. Example: If you order any chicken dish/platter, there would be 2 pieces with 3 tsp of curry and rest would be rice for rupees 500. I would definitely suggest if you want to spend good amount of money on tasteless food with excellent location then they you should visit this place.
Most imp when you pay them butt load of amount for bill and if you want to carry left-over food they don’t allow that too. I guess they serve same common food to rest of the guest like Dal and Rice. So AVOID THIS PLACE

Thanks
Anupriya
