Just 2 hours drive from Mumbai, Lots of open space, quite and warm rooms. Play areas for children at almost every corner was really cool. Best part was a nice massage at center. Service may not be at par but decent. Over all a satisfactory experience

After reading many bad reviews, still stayed in deluxe cottage. To my surprise, it isn't bad. Very nice calm place. Rooms are huge. Same cottage if u book any even 3star hotel, will cost 3 times and people want same service here by paying 1/3 price. Just a walk round the resort was refreshing. Nice river near resort.

I visited this hotel with office colleagues. The drive upto the hotel is amazing. This is on the old Bombay Pune highway. Rooms: The hotel rooms are just OK though the price for the rooms is slightly high. Mobile phone coverage is a big problem inside the rooms. So if people prefer solitude then this is the best place.

If you want to ruin your vacation and see how indifference and apathy can ruin an awesome property, MTDC Karla is the place to be. The resort is an excellent property, very spacious and convenient location, but totally ruined by the corrupt govt. employees due to lack of maintenance. The rooms, bathrooms, cottages, gardens, boating area, restaurant, roads.. everything was...

As per the title, this was my second visit to this place, you can read my first review via my profile. The second time was not as good as the first! Ofcourse, the resort is quite scenic, with well-spaced cottage-type-rooms and car parking adjacent to each room. But the following niggling points made it an average stay - 1) During...

Good to visit in winters, quite a chilly weather and you can enjoy famous Kinara Dhaba, sheetal Dhaba, Sunny da Dhaba, Tony da dhabas few KM away. Post dinner ideal place for 1 night stay to avoid night driving. Decent cottages type accommodation, greenery all over the compound. Morning breakfast is also good. All in all pretty cost economic option!

MTDC Karla is spread across a wider area with lush greenery and several kinds of cottages (standard, super deluxe, deluxe) and rooms. However its terribly maintained rather I should say negative maintenance. Its such a waste of an amazing property which can be transformed into a lovely resort nestled amongst pictursque surroundings considering the space available, if atleast little care...

The resort is decently maintained, a little more than an hour from Pune. The resort is very shaded, most trees are massive, and look like they are years old. There is a central garden, with a children's play area. There are multiple children's play areas throughout. The main restaurant is not equipped to handle the load of people coming to...
