“Excellento!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Visited in august for 2 days and i was overwhelmed with the dedication and focus of their staff to make your stay so comfortable and just pleasant. Excellent location, amazing service, delicious food and over all excellent range of activities for the whole family. I miss that morning breakfast and evening tea above water fall... SIMPLY AWESOME!!!
.

Room Tip: try their duplex and pool facing rooms... be careful of monkeys...

We stayed here for one night and really enjoyed it. The staff were lovely, especially the Manager was very helpfull and co-operative rooms were very spacious but would require some modernisation and a good and varied breakfast,Lunch & Dinner. The location is great,very close to all the things that you would want to see or do. Also the Fun n Entertainment program was amazing, kids as well as the parents had a great time.

MUST VISIT!!!!!!

Room Tip: Pool side rooms are best for relaxing

It is a nice place for family with kids, everyone has some activity to get occupied and decent food. The rooms need a lot of maintenance though, for the hefty fees they charge one would expect better facilities and cleanlniess.

Everything in our room(worse than budget hotels) was broken. When we switched on our tv, we could only hear sound but the display was out. We asked the manager for another room, he provided us but was visibly furious. Why? We pay 5000/- for single night in Matheran? And should not even expect a well maintained room? Later when we shifted, we found there were no tissue papers in the toilet. After calling housekeeping, when I opened the door, he just handed the roll in my hand and left. Later while checking out, they told us for card payment we have to pay 5% extra, I know banks take 2% from vendors, but 5%? When he saw surprise on my face, he calmly and smilingly said that he would waive off 5%. But too late. Thank God we were there for just one night.

The only thing positive I found was the location and food.

Matheran is a beautiful place for people who like to get lost in the jungle, only thing that is problem is to find a fine place to stay. Most of the hotels are booked and then those availble ask for unreasonable prices for bad service.

Visited this place in August 2013, after recommendations from a few friends. Booked online via email & transferred money into their savings accounts & found the process pretty easy. The approach to this resort is right in the middle of the Matheran market, yet away from the hustle n bustle. There are no signs in the market to guide you to the right approach road.

Its better to check the Rooms before check in, since the place is a little old & be ready to ADJUST to creaking furniture, old but clean toilets, damp walls with small patches of fungus, etc. But I believe this is common to all Hotels in Matheran considering the high costs (no vehicles allowed & only manual labour) & the heavy monsoon. The rooms were pretty well maintained & the staff was pretty helpful with any requests. Also, the food was fantastic. The discotheque is nothing but an open area & hence, the "noise" is audible in all rooms till around 10:30 pm when they switch off the music.

Beware of the monkeys & keep the windows & doors shut at all times. There are numerous points within walking distance from the resort or else you can ride on horses which are available aplenty just outside the hotel. Be sure to negotiate with the handlers beforehand. Though I did not use the pool (since I had a cold), the waterfall looked awesome. I used the spa facilities which I found to be total value for money.

Room Tip: Choose Pool Facing Rooms (AC Deluxe)
