I have visited this place many times before. This time we booked a Non AC cottage, which also has an extra bed in a small drawing room- ideal for a family of 3. However they have deluxe cottages also which are equivalent to a 2 BHK home as it has 2 bedrooms, 2 toilets, 2 balconies and one big hall; good enough for 2 families.
The best part of MTDC resorts are that they are located in the best possible locations; this one also has sprawling space inside with a water park and the river Indryani is flowing through the resort. You can park your car next to your cottage and may actually need them in the night to reach the restaurant for dinner. The inside roads they have made with concrete recently which used to deteriorate every year after the rains. We also noticed there were some moderinisation work going on in few cottages, which is welcome change for MTDC; which otherwise they are very poor of. Most of there resorts lack proper maintenance and professional handling; this one is no exception either. The check out time at 9 am is also too bad especially in the winters.
However i like this location and the serenity of this place very much and hence keep going there for short one day vacation.
