“OLD and Creaky ...AVOID..”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Recently my husband bought a 1N/2D stay deal from GroupOn for this resort which turned out to be a very very disappointing and uncomfortable experience.

Firstly, its name - 'SPA RESORT' is misleading as neither it is a Health resort nor does it face any sea side, not to mention any facilities available for physical fitness.

The resort is manned by few senior people with the help of a handful of young staff.This property is a decade old, partially renovated having 2/3 new rooms on its ground floor. All other rooms are on the first floor, most of which are in bad condition.Area behind the rooms is littered with empty water and liquor bottles and other stuff(Pls see the pics).

Location - Remote and very far from any beach.One should own a vehicle to roam around though rental cars are available there.

Approach - Mind boggling, as no display board to give you direction. The area after reception is relatively clean,open and airy having two tiny swimming pools.

Rooms - Run-Down,smelly and laden with age old furniture...After checking about 7 rooms we settled for one after getting it cleaned up again to our satisfaction. Only solace was that it was specious.

Bathroom fittings, toiletries,towels and bedding were in poor condition too..

Room Lightings - Only 2 lights were working...most of the switches were broken including ceiling fan speed control knob..AC was noisy too..

Recreation area had a broken pool table, table tennis table and a carom board. Outside lawn area had few sitting facilities and one dirty hammock ..

Staff - A bunch of Sweet natured, helpful and simple people who are doing their best to manage and keeping their visitors happy.

Food - A good variety of common Indian dishes tasting average.

Thank God it was only a night stay and I had carried my towels, paper napkins and a bed sheet which I normally do during our road trips.

Over all, a waste of money and time..Our 'Get away' trip ended up being a damp squib. In future, we will surely be wary of all deals offered at GroupOn.

Room Tip: Go for newly renovated rooms only if clean environment and comfort is your priority.

It was lovely to have been to this resort. A nice room equipped with the necessary requirements. The food was nice and authentic. The location is a nice getaway.
Its not beach touch, but a enjoyable drive to the beach. Good place for a weekend.

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at Elysium!!! It was excellent being there, the place, rooms, service and food can be rated as excellent. I will want to come here again and hope that the hospitality services remains the same. A special thanks to the team to make our anniversary more enjoyable and an unforgettable.

The rooms are good with air conditioning. The food is average but you can also rely on outside sea food. Swimming pool is average. Room service is awesome. Indoor sports is there such as pool, tt etc. Good place with connectivity. It is better to take your own vehicle.

Room Tip: Mobile network will not be there.

Decided to stay at the Elysium spa resort with the family after reading the reviews.. Was extremely impressed with everything, from the helpful staff who couldn't do enough for you, to the generous room sizes and extra comfy beds. The food is excellent too, giving you an authentic cuisine every time. Was pleased to find the rooms and hotel in general were well maintained and very clean. Excellent value for money, they will definitely be seeing us again, and I would strongly recommend staying here for anyone wanting to visit India and looking for somewhere good to stay!

Its just an awesome get away from the Busy city of Mumbai, great hospitality and service. Had an awesome time. Its just perfect for a weekend get away. Its just 20 mins ride from Mumbai in a speed boat which make it although more assessable. Its the best place to unwind after after a tough week to get pampered. The Food spread and the taste is amazing. The staff is amazing and its a good choice for a budget trip aswell. I would love to visit again with my Family Soon.

Rooms were fine if not great. Service , Food, staff is good.
Pool was not clean. Games like Billiard table , TT are not well maintained.
So as far as Hotel is concerned, it is a good choice at the discounted rates ( we used Group On vouchers )

Problem we faced was its Location specially because we did not have our own vehicle.
It is very far from any of the beach.
Public transport is not good either ( Auto drivers cheats you , bus frequency is less ). It becomes very dark by 7 to return and area does not seem safe either.

Hope this helps you all.
