My trip to Khanvel was an instant plan - I booked the room at Green Valley in the evening and left the very next day (was there for 2 weekdays). Thanks to the Manager - Mr. Ashesh Patro - for accepting the booking over email and patiently answering all my questions relating to the room facilities over several calls!
The hotel is new (the manager said it started in Dec 2012) and the rooms are neatly done. The bed was also clean and comfortable and air conditioning was good. Overall, the hotel staff (house keeping, room service, restaurant and reception) were very good, helpful and prompt.
From the evening time, lot of insects start entering the room, if you don't close the windows properly - guess that must be a problem across in the area.
I must say that the food at the restaurant is of superior quality (we had veg food). It is freshly prepared, thus, takes a bit of time - so recommend that one needs to enter 15-20 mins earlier than planned. We were told that they do not use food colour - which is very good! Also, the a-la-cart menu is priced at a slightly higher side, but the quality compensates for the same. It also serves non-veg and liquor.
We did not find any decent restaurant nearby.
The hotel seem to attract mostly business travellers (at least during the weekdays). There were a couple of Chinese nationals as well during our stay.
The swimming pool is decent, but didn't notice if it has any water filter in it - or it was not working! I found the pool to be oddly placed, and you feel slightly out of the hotel while in the pool.
Hotel Accessibility - Not sure if it is eaisly accessible by train as we had drove down.
We took the right turn from NH8 - where it showed Khanvel as 17 Kms. Major strech (~10 Kms) of this road is in a worst condition - couldn't drive at a speed of more than 15 Kms/Hr.
Thus, in our return journey, we came via Silvassa-Bhilad route - which is about 50 Kms longer!
Suggest to check with the hotel if there is any other route which is shorter than this.
Khanvel Resort - 2 Kms
Van Vihar - 1 Kms
Butterfly Park - 1 Kms (Opp. Van Vihar)
Deer Park - 8 Kms (timings are odd - please check before planning a trip)
Lion Safari - 12-13 Kms
