We stayed here for 3 nights (27th April 2013 to 30th April) and had booked 2 rooms for four of us. Stayed in Executive rooms overlooking the forest. Balcony view was good. At night there was lot of disturbance with gas cylinder loading and unloading. On the last night our sleep was disturbed because of children playing in the backyard at 11 pm and also due to movement of furniture by hotel staff on the upper floor. Hotel management should take note of this and also stop the children from playing at odd hours. 25% discount at 'Unlock Bar' was not given unless asked for it, though a notice board is put up in the restaurant about this discount. But overall the stay was pleasant and the Italian food at 'Pizzeria", under the shade of trees, was most enjoyable. Mr Kamal's service at 'Pizzeria' was excellent. We had all our meals at Pizzeria.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the forest was better though it is less expensive than the pool facing rooms.

One of the both beautiful places to stay. The location of the hotel is awesome. Few steps away from the main market, a great hotel at Mahabaleshwar. The food is fantastic, the staffs are kind & very helpful. Really liked my stay here. They have a big pool & a spa.

The search for a premium stay experience in Mahabaleshwar ends at Evershine - A Keys resort.
I stayed at the resort from 20th April to 22nd i.e 2 nights and let me assure you those were one of the most relaxing nights. I planned it 15 days before so as to avoid inconvenience. Now about the property. Well the property is big enough to be called a star property. It has all the amenities of a premium hotel. A multi cuisine restaurant, a lounge, a very clean rather cleanest swimming pool, a poolside pizzeria serving mexican and Italian food, a fully equipped gym and activity centre, and last but the best of all the 'Sohum Spa'. I will share all my experience pertaining to each one of them. let us start with the Dining Part..

1) Multi Cuisine Restaurant- They Serve a very god spread of Regional as well as global cuisines both in breakfast and lunch and the food was authentic.The waiters were prompt.The in-Room Dining experience was also pretty good where we were served piping hot food.

2) Unlock the Lounge bar- Well a very beautiful and authentic atmosphere for a lounge. Nice feel it had,serving a great spread of Cocktails and Mocktails along with starters.

3) Poolside Pizzeria served a wide range of pasta and Pizza and yes they also served the all day dining menu items there.

4) The Gym is fully equipped with all kinds of latest machines for a ideal workout.

5) The activity centre has the pool table, Table tennis and various other indoor games like chess and carrom.

6) The Best part is Sohum Spa. I took a couple massage which was so relaxing and endearing. the experience was out of the world. Nice and aromatic.

The Check in was smooth and so the check out. Rooms are not that spacious but comfortable.

I am definitely looking forward for my next visit there in monsoon..

Room Tip: all rooms are equally good but if you get a better deal then go for pool view or garden view room..

I went to Keys resort with my wife and son. The resort is well maintained, staff is courteous, food is good and ambiance is super. Only thing that I found little annoying is the room size. But overall I really liked my stay there. The highlight of the resort is pool, its big and clean. And the surrounding of pool is really beautiful with blooming flowers all over. And to top of it all, the weather of Mahabaleshwar was extremely pleasant, in fact it was quite cold (not observed it in April anywhere) in the night when we were enjoying the rajastani folk program organized by hotel in the outdoors. Overall a very pleasant stay, that we enjoyed a lot as family.

Me and my wife stayed in this resort after I looked up on trip advisor about all the hotels in mahabaleshwar. And let me tell you that the reviews were damn accurate. Evershine is an awesome property with very good rooms. Basic amenities are excellent and spa is also too good. One drawback which i should mention was that the service in the dining area becomes below average when there are more guests. It takes forever to place and recieve order. That should be checked out.
PS- If you can add more number of activities on the weekends for fun and enjoyment like games and other stuff it will enhance the experience.

Dear Guest
It is not very often that guests take so much time and interest in writing a review about a property they have stayed in, not only appreciating it, but also giving constructive suggestions. I deeply appreciate the time you have taken to share your experience with a wider audience and for the points mentioned.

I take guest suggestions very seriously and have made note of all that you have mentioned. We have noted your concern on a slow a la carte service in restaurant which is I admit is challenging when the resort is choker blocked.
Also your suggestion on more entertainment activities is seriously considered.

I do once again thank you for your time and do hope to have both of you back with us for another wonderful Keys experience

Warm regards

We stayed here for 2 nights in April 2013. The property is new and one of the prime resorts in Mahableshwar - and obviously expensive. We stayed in the Executive Room - with average room rate was 7500 + taxes (including breakfast).

Room:- Rooms are spacious and well done. We had a forest view room - which they call the Executive room. The Deluxe room (the highest category room) is identical to the Executive room, but facing the pool/lawn.

Food - Breakfast was good with Indian and continental spread. We checked the buffet menu during lunch and dinner - however thought it was limited and expensive. Dined at the Pizzeria by the pool - and we loved it. The waiter was courteous enough to even serve meals from the main restaurant at the pool side - seems its not a normal practice.

Overall Property - The hotel is well maintained and the staff keeps it clean. The pool and garden are well maintained - we enjoyed our stroll in the garden post dinner. The property is small, compared to the old style Dreamland and Brightland Resort. We didn't use the gym or the activity center.

Scope for Improvement - Internet should be free - especially when the room cost is almost 8k. Paying 800 for 24 hr internet is ridiculous. Quality/Spread of buffet should be improved
