“Nice Property Club Mahindra”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

Excellent resort. Very well planned & at a very good location.Extremely hospitable staff.Spa is awesome.I'll definitely have another visit with family again for sure.I believe the food is speciality. The view from the rooms are so picturesque. A quite relaxation point in the himalayas. One of the best hill stations i'd ever been. May this resort grow longer. Thanks for CM

We had been there during Christmas; the music, games and food arrangements on Christmas eve were wonderful.Really enjoyed the vacation.Here is the detailed review of different aspects of the resort:

Location - Kanatal resort is a great place for vacation especially when you want to be away from the hustle and bustle of the crowded Mussorie city and enjoy natural beauty

Rooms -Rooms 101 and 102 are in pathetic condition....with shower panels not working properly and dozen other problems in those rooms. We got the rooms changed and life got easy after that.Hope they've got the problems fixed after so many complaints.Other rooms are nice;neat and comfortable - with all the facilities available.

Service - Food is also good but the service is pathetic.Minimum of 40 mins is what they need to serve a paneer tikka in your room.so plan your orders in advance and do place them well in time.

Spa services - Its worth mentioning the quality of spa services of the resort. Let me warn you - the massage that they give leaves your body stiff and aching :( and you might repent your decision of using this service.
Even the shirodhara they give is also not effective as such and not worth the money spent on it.

Recreation - They have options for indoor activities (including play zone for small kids) available for adults as well as kids which allows you to have real good time with your family.

Overall, it was nice staying there.

Room Tip: Rooms 101 and 102 were pathetic during our visit..we got them changed

We visited the resort on the new years eve of 2012. Before starting the trip, the main attraction for us was the road trip from Delhi, leading through Merrut, Rourkee, Dehradun, Massourie, Dhnaulti and then Kanatal. One the way back, it was Chamba, Tehri (a bit off the route but worth vising because of Tehri dam), Hariawar, Rourkee, Merrut and Delhi (around 1,200km). All our expectations were from our road trip and somehow our expectations from the resort took a backseat.
We indeed had a very good time reaching the resort through this beautiful route and we thought we got our money worth till we reached the resort.
We were welcomed at a big reception area, leading to a huge dinig room, a small well done smoking room/bar with a small library. Also from the same area, you can get the elevator which leads to the other portions of the resorts (the guets rooms, the game room, gym, spa). We had a warm welcome and were lead to our room which was very spacious and well done. Though this was good enough, I wished there was a vallet to take care of my parking after driving so long.
Through our stay of two nights they hosted two difgferent parties and both of them were pretty good. The last party was a lunch hosted at an apple orchard which was a kilometer trek through the biodiversity area and it was wonderful. Their regular lunch/dinner/breakfast was also pretty good. The dining area overlooked the hills and its a beautiful view from there. Though the resort is on the other side of the hill from where you can see the Gangotri range, but itss just a walk away so I didnt missed much.
Also, I have heard that these guys specialize in spa therapies which I didnt take any. They also have a heated indoor swiming pool but I found it too overcrowded since everybody wanted to be in it.
In all, I think its a good resort, with a good service, great food and a very nice location. If you get a chance dont miss on this one.

I have been to various Club Mahindra properties including Manali, Shimla (Mashobra), Goa, Coorg, Binsar etc and this was the first time my parents and brother and his family (wife and daughter) were coming along too. My intention was to show them what Club Mahindra was all about and also spend a good weekend with the family.
The route from Delhi is straight forward - take the Meerut route of the city and cross Rishikesh, Chamba and finally the last 12km to the resort. However, road sense in this part of India is pathetic and this combined with 2-lane highway from Muzzafarnagar onwards really slowed us down. It took us a good 8 hrs for the 325km journey.
The resort's first look is very good. Its a bigger property than the Shimla (Mashobra) one though the parking seemed limited for season customers. Check-in was smooth and we were given three rooms together for the benefit of the kids.
However, the rooms next to us had a large group of males (30-40 yrs) who did drink heavily and made full use of the big verandha - this is the last thing I / member wants when traveling with a family. Why cant the reception guys make sure males only groups are accommodated somewhere else?
The rooms were decent in size and the huge verandah a boon for kids. The quality and up-keep of the resort is very good and so is the restaurant that serves tasty food. Ordering ala carte is like burning money - the quantity of food is very less. Hence stick to the buffet meals and though expensive, worth it - except for the last night when the resort didn't have a simply thing - curd (yoghurt). How on earth....?
The resort is based in the middle of nowhere but thankfully there is a small shop and a restaurant next door. We did drive to Dhanaulti, 12km away, for the Eco Park - a pretty good place to be with kids.
Overall, we were all happy with the quality of the place and tasty food. However, small things can ruin your holiday. Another tip for them will be to make the play area bigger : the Shimla property, though small in size, has a much bigger play area for kids.

Room Tip: A higher room offers better views but if you are a large group, the ground floor rooms make sense wi...

This one qualifies for state of art in the middle of lower Himalaya's. More famous for another hill station within an hours drive and a beautiful landscape called Dhanaulti near by it's any families hideaway. We enjoyed doing many physical activities and visit to nearby apple orchard was worth the hike.

Excellent food (a la carte not buffet)..decent rooms and good staff.. its not the best option to stay as its on the wrong side of the valley, you don't get Himalayan views from this property. also reaching thr is quite tricky, thr is no option but to come in your own vehicle and keep it with you during the stay..

Room Tip: higher floor, don't take the ground floor room, there is no view from the balcony..

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...
