Visited in April 2013. Approach road - 10 Kms very bad. Takes more than 30 minutes !!!
Once in the resort, great view and ambiance. Reception hall is well made and spacious. Only one restaurant, so kind of limited. No landscaping done in the property .... only few patches of greenery. Lake Pavna view is excellent, however no approach to the lake. Swimming pool and infinity pool very good. Once you reach the resort, kind of stuck in the property due to bad roads. Not much local activity planned as no travel desk. Ok for two days max. Restaurant bit expensive for the variety and quantity offered.

Room Tip: Plan a short trip if not interested in adventure activities like rock climbing, trekking etc. Take r...

Very good location with view of pawns dam in backdrop of resort. Very good flora & fauna in the resort itself. It's just a replica of Amby valley . Yet there is land scaping going on & will take another year to complete.

Room Tip: 3130 on 1st floor has very good view of pawna dam

My family along with some friends stayed at Club Mahindra Tungi Lake Pavna for 3 nights end of April.

Club Mahindra doesn't offer online reservations for this resort since it is not fully operational. They are in the process of adding more rooms. We received a pre-arrival mail from Mr Noel Lobo one day prior to check in. They gave us directions and some resort details.

The distance from South Mumbai to the resort is around 120-125 kms. It took us 3.5 hours to cover this distance. The last 10 km road takes 35 minutes to cross as roads are filled with potholes.

We reached the resort at 2.30 pm. It is a big property spread over 45 acres. The check in was swift but it took them 1 hour for our luggage to arrive!! We were offered a welcome kit & welcome drinks. The kit contains a list of activities scheduled at the resort for the entire week.

We had 2 one bedroom units (2122 & 2125). Both units were lake facing and fantastic views. The room are comfortable and are of 3.5-4 star standards. There is only one television in the entire one bedroom unit (small 17-20 inch) which is in the hall & they also have a Philips dvd player. They have a microwave, toaster, mini fridge, cutlery & plated. Everything was functioning. The bathroom was reasonable well made.

Minor issues which need to be sorted were one of the bathrooms had a constant bad aroma, they only offer one key for every unit (even though we were 4 adults in the unit) etc. On the last day our aircondition was not functioning properly. The technicians came a couple of times but couldn't solve the problem.

For Room service they have gourmet express. The options are limited and they charge a flat 12.5 % service charge.

They have only 1 restaurant which served breakfast, lunch & dinner buffet. Club Mahindra members are charged Rs 1448 per adult if they opt for all 3 meals. They also have an option of taking any 2 meals. Alacarte option is available. On the second day we decided to order some Chinese starter from the Alacarte but they declined as their Chinese chef had not come to work!!!

They have a small store which sells merchandise, water, soft drinks, Maggi & some MTR ready to eat packets. A small toy train (Jiyo Life Express) transports members & guests from the room to the restaurant & vice versa. This facility runs almost every 30 minutes from 7am to 11pm.

They have 2 swimming pools, a spa and a gymnasium. Activities center has a pool table (chargeable), ice hockey, table tennis, etc.

The staff were courteous & eager to serve.

Overall a good option for a 2-3 night stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 2122 & 2125. Both are 1 bedroom units having Lake facing View.

You need to be smart with club mahindra to get you this as they don't offer reservation through website claiming property not fully developed.
They are using it to get more customers to buy holidays. That seems fair but not at expense of members.
Property is good. A great get away from Mumbai. A touch expensive for locals but in line with club mahindra properties
Make sure you arrive early to bargain for better views.
Swimming pool view is awesome

Its way away from crowded Lonavala... From main road to resort almost 10-12 kms patch is very bad. For driving in night is very horrible.. Even 21 kms away from Lonavala you cant thinking of going there once a day.

From 1st floor from Studio appartment room the view of the lake is ausome. even you can see the express way lights moving ...

The food, Chinese as well as Indian is very Delicious. The restorent is very away from rooms so waiting time is more for every order.

The View from room in morning as well as in evening is very pleasesnt. Also the swimmming pool of resort is huge and view of vally & lake.

This is good place to for weekend if you get booking.

Room Tip: Room facing lake side on upper floor.
