As name indicates, waterfront is topmost attraction of this hotel. The hotel doors open just on the promenade of lavasa. Suits/ apartments having all facilities which usually club hotels has, are available. We had a 1 BHK unit, moderately equipped kitchen. *No obligation of club membership here. We booked waterfront room, and everything was just a minutes away from us.... More

We visited during the 1st week of June and it was an awesome experience. I would say the best period to visit Lavasa would be between July 1st week - Sept. The reservoir and lake was almost empty, still we had a good time. A walk along the busy promenade is really good, a cool breeze blowing with people walking... More

We visited the hotel in July 2016. The rooms are spacious and the kitchenette is adequate (although I would have appreciated a proper stove rather than an induction plate). The Bed linen was clean and the bathrooms were clean and functional. However. There was constant smell of dampness. So really don't recommend this place for anybody with breathing ailments. The...

Average hotel with noisy rooms and unco-operative staff. When we complained about the noise, they said that it was coming from the downstair's restaurant's exhaust, "Please adjust till 10pm!" The room has below average fittings and a damp smell. It feels like a 2 or 3-star property..

Great place to chill during weekends , Excellent weather and some great amenities. Sight-seing is ideal for short trips and some good hotel chains around make it an ideal weekend destination. Taxi available from Mumbai and Pune locations , Best to travel by your own car

I was there with my friends on a weekend. An amazing place to stay. The nice thing about that hotel is it offers room like 1bhk so if any family is going to stay with a small kid, they dont need to go out for small things.
