“Luxury in middle of nowhere...”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We had a very short trip to Mahindra Kanatal Resort during Oct 2012. A very beautiful and cozy property, the rooms are almost five star standard with nice sitout areas (large terrace for ground floor rooms and balconies for others). The resort fortunately has a lift to go down to room level from the reception area. The key attraction of the resort is small but beatiful gymnasium surrounded by glass panels on all sides with beautiful valley view. There is also the novelty of having a heated pool on the property though the usage is charged at 250/- per guest per use (comes free with spa packages). There is a small games hall for kids with a TT Table, chess, carrom and some books etc. The food was nice and service attentive. Dining hall also has glass panels on two sides giving panoramic view of the valley.

On the whole the place is quite relaxing and is a muct try...

Room Tip: Rooms starting with 1xx (eg 101, 102 etc...) have a large terrace for sitting out. Other rooms (2xx...

This is nice property which CM had added in its kitty. The rooms were clean but the size of the washroom was too small, but it was neat. The food is expensive like all other CM properties and the choice for vegetarians is less. Moreover chicken & fish are marked in green as vegetarian food. The Spa was not up to the mark although they offered discount of 25% to CM members.

The lawn of the property was not well maintained. The good thing is that they have play room for children. Its got good views from balcony. Its warm and comforting.Over all stay was nice and the staff was also very helpful.

I had read many reviews on this property and was fully confused, as the reviews varied from excellent to terrible. The mystery is now solved. The property is taken over by Club Mahindra in Feb 2012 and the new management have done lots to improve...essentially the services. The rooms are great, especially the 1BR units, and their activity centre is hyper active. Very entertaining. Every day in the morning, be prepared to receive a flier of day's activity planned by the resort and you will need those, as the destination has no worthwhile sightseeing options. The Resort offers bicycles, rappelling, forest treks Zorbing etc. The best part about this destination is its Forest walks. There is a well laid out trek in the forest just opposite the Resort gate and you can select your pace and distance. The views of the Himalayas from this trek are just amazing. Do not miss this for anything. Even if you can walk for just 15 minutes, go for it. Do not forget to pack your Camera. We would walk for 2-3 hours every day. The food was good, though expensive (like in most Club Mahindra properties) and chefs very helpful, so if you want something not in the menu, ask for it a day in advance and they will make it for you. There is no self-cook option here, except tea /coffee. I seriously think that the buffet costing for a group/family need to be revisited by the Resort (Rs 4250/- all meals for 4 per day, includes taxes). The Spa was actually a disappointment, considering it is called a spa Resort. Perhaps the management is yet to get to attend to it. The pricing for massages (approx Rs 2750) is not value for money. Serious makeover required here. The much hyped heated swimming pool is a part of Spa facility, so chargeable.

Room Tip: The Resort has 3 1BR units and 34 HU. HU are good too, but the 1BR gets you additional living room...

This resort has amazing location, one of the best hospitality and close to Nature!!!! The Rooms are very clean and the best part is balcony from which you can see the valley view changing after every 20 minutes. The Pool is bit small but very good for families with Kids!!! Food was sumptuous!!! The only drawback is that it is about 2 hour drive from Mussoorie with not so many shops around!!!! During Monsoon, the view was just awesome!!! You can really see clouds condensation!!!

Room Tip: If you are travelling with small kids, do make sure to buy snacks, milk from Mussoorie or Dhanaulti...

Club Mahindra has recently taken over this resort and it is an amazing resort. The fresh mountain air, the awesome views from the resort cleanse and rejuvenate your system! The rooms are very clean and spacious, we had the 1BHK suite and it has an amazing seating area plus a large and spacious bedroom, The private balcony offered an amazing view of the sunset over the mountains. You can enjoy a cuppa coffee sitting in this balcony! The restaurant offers wide breakfast spread. The hotel orgainises some activities from time to time as well, like a DJ and bonfire nite when we had gone there in March. There is nothing much to do in the area except to sit back and relax. For the adventure enthusiasts, there are a few adventure sports nearby. The hotel has a nice little sports room, with a table tennis table, a few video games, and also a carrom board! There is also a few barbeque grills on the terrace and you have a nice barbeque dinner if you wish! They have a very nice bakery, we celebrated my husband's birthday and they baked a fresh cake within a couple of hours! Tehri dam is one of the attractions nearby. An awesome soothing and rejuvenating experience!

Room Tip: Pick a room overlooking the mountains, offers a good view

I stayed there last week with my and my sisters family.

There was a mixed reviews I got one of my friend who stayed there in Mar' 12 then I understand there were lot of gaps in service offerings.. But now, it has trademark Club mahindra offering. I am awestruck the way the entire resort is made.

I really like the restaurant, play areas, activity room and also souvenier shop that stores nice crafts and wares.

The service was great considering we had many kids and they would always need one or the other thing.. Kids enjoyed the most in activity room, basketball, badminton etc..

I rate this among the best resorts of club mahindra.

Room Tip: There are few general stores adjacent to resort and also the eco park with nature park just opposite...

We stopped over for lunch. The staff was very polite. However, the food didn't quite make the mark. It was plain ordinary. The restaurant was swarming with flies and none of the staff seemed to find that a problem. Good coffee though.
