“Relaxing and peaceful!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

We visited the resort last weekend (June 2012).

Pros -
1. Right on the highway so no need to take arterial roads to reach the resort.
2. Very peaceful and relaxing environment. Just perfect get-away from the busy Mumbai life.
3. Good rooms with a nice window which oversees the greenery outside. Toilets are basic and clean but not as aesthetic as the rooms.
4. Having tea in the balcony with raining outside - cannot ask for more.
5. Though the resort is not very large, it is relaxing to take morning / evening walks within the complex.
6. Nice swimming pool - do carry your swimming gear, we had forgotten to carry :)

Cons -
1. Food is average.
2. Service is not as good as the resort itself. There were instances of slackness e.g. tea was not as hot as one would like.
3. In case you dont have your own vehicle, I guess finding a rickshaw/taxi might be a problem. But there was a cab in the resort, that may be of help.
4. Slightly far from tourist attractions like Lion's point and Bhushi dam, but close to karla caves (we preferred to stay at the hotel rather than visiting many places).
5. High tariff on weekend for a 3-star resort.

Room Tip: I guess all the rooms have balcony, but just confirm before booking. Take ground floor or first floo...

Was here with my team twice last year and they have thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Rooms are more than you can expect - very comfortable, clean and the view - bdw I could see mountains and greenery around - what a break from Mumbai!!
This is the only place my team wants to go again and again...well done Mr Debashish...

Food is the best...and the team takes care of you like a family!!

Cant wait to go back in rains!!!

I had a two nights stay at this resort which was one of my memorable experience at a new place like Lonavala... It was a WoW experience. The anticipatory service of Mr Debashish was memorable.. I being to the new town but i never felt that i am to the new town. Yes Lonavala Indeed is very awesome for its natural view... They also serve the good Kolhapuri Thali food out there.. The Go-carting experience at the resort was remarkable ... it made me retrieve my college days.. The rooms are also spacious enough.. and comfortable.......

I would rather suggest if you make a trip at Lonavala please do stay at this place to experience thier great Hospitality....

Room Tip: The suite rooms are the best..

Its a nice little resort off the old Mumbai-Pune highway outside Lonavla. Its much cleaner than some other resorts in the area, since its relatively new. The manager was polite and helpful and also offered us a good discount. The best time to visit is the monsoons when the surrounding scenery is beautiful. Although its not really a resort - it just has rooms, a restaurant, and some indoor games really. There is a go-karting track nearby. Rooms are clean and well appointed, though basic.

Room Tip: If its raining, just go for the first floor room - you will enjoy sitting in the balcony and sipping...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2011

We had been to lonavala to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. We stayed at Govinda resorts for 2 nights/3 days. Resort is wellmaintained. Breakfast & Dinner was included in our package. Food was ultimate & service was also too good. The restaurant serves only vegetarian food. Outside the resort there is an option of Go-carting which we enjoyed. Plenty of things to do inside resort such as water pooling, Indoor games or just relax enjoying the beauty of nature. If you go by your own vehicle it would be best as it is located far from main Lonavla city. But resort guys will help u arrange a vehicle even if you dont have one. Overall experience was very good.
