Went to Club Mahindra Kanatal with my family (wife and 2 daughters) for new year (Dec 31- Jan 3). The location is 320 kms from Gurgaon and took 7 hours to reach by own car. The resort is beautifully located with valley views on one side and view of snow peaks on the other. Ideal place for just lazing around. The wather was perfect with average day tenperature around 5-10C and bright sun shine (against foggy days in Gurgaon).

I had booked a 1 bed apartment which was great...very spacious and overlooking the valley. If possible, go for higher floor. I was on ground floor, which has huge terrace. Higher floors will give you good valley views. There is a great 8 km jungle walking trail opposite the resort..really great.

The staff is good. The new year eve was well planned. The restaurant service has room for improvement. The buffet selection was good but I had to greally grab the staff to get the dishes replenished in the buffet. Same story at breakfast. Ordered room service for b'fast (an hour in advance) and I was told that it will take time since buffet was a priority for them.

Room Tip: Look for higher floor rooms if you would like to have valley views. Or, ground floor, if you prefer terrace.

This property is now under the management of Club Mahindra. The property is beautiful, well appointed and the room and bathroom get 5 stars on comfort and functionality, it was nice to have a shower cubicle which kept the water in. The praise stops here. The maintenace is poor, large glass windows which are not cleaned it seems for weeks at end, monkeys in droves that prevent you from sitting out, a spa that has a small heated pool with a layer of oil floating on top and seemed totally unhygenic so did not aspire any confidence in the treatments available at the spa, and the food was atrocious, they attempt to get you to have the buffet meals, so a bunch of lazy cooks can serve large quantities of sub-standard food to guests who mostly not being a discering type unsuspectingly partake the buffet. The check out was also irritating as the bill could not be given to jus as the printer was not working since the night before and they rang up maintenace only after we raised issue at 10am and the manager and reception staff a bunch of teeny boppers, appeared at all times unwashed and unkempt which was very off putting. I must add though the sunset from this resort is amazing, one is dependant completely on resort food, however my chicken club sandwhich sans the coleslaw and the fries was edible so worth a stop for a night if you driving around that area.

Room Tip: Take as high a floor as possible!

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 & 3xx etc) have just a small balcony.

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 (1 unit on each floor, room # 111, 211, 311). The higher you go, the better you are in terms of view in any hill Resort
