“Very Pleasant Stay”
Reviewed May 23, 2011

I went to Saputara with my hubby, 1 and half year old daughter and my inlaws. After going to through all the avaialble hotels I finalised on Hotel Shilpi.
We started from Mumbai at around 5:30 am and reached Shilpi at 11:00 am. The drive was excellent. The Mumbai- Nashik highway is awesome with some patches where there is still 2 lane road. The road from Nashik to Saputara was 2 lane road and was in good condition.
The weather was very cool and windy.

Hotel Shilpi has 2 types of rooms: Deluxe and Suite rooms. Both of them were good. We took one Deluxe and one Suite room. Since i had 1 and half year old daughter i needed a fridge to keep her milk so booked the Suite room and was happy that i made a good choice. The rooms are very big and clean. Since the weather was very windy we hardly needed to switch on the AC.
Food was okok, we were not very happy with it cause we have had the best food till now in Mahabaleshwar. But it was not as if it was not eatable. Overall the food was good, but they didnt have more options for small kids.
The swimming pool was small, but clean. The Kerala massage center did not have a female lady so was not able to do anything. But my husband was not that happy with the Massage person.

Overall the Hotel Shilpi was good experience. Weather was awesome.

There is a small lake where you can do boating which we enjoyed a lot. We happend to see Sunset point which was not very clear due to lot of clouds. The Ropeway was also not working as the weather was very windy. But we had good time riding the camel and the horse and my daughter too enjoyed those rides.

Ashit Gandhi, Surat.

We had been @ Shilpi Hill Resort in month of January this year from 4-1-2011 to 11-1-2011. We four people (my wife and my two kids (17 yrs. and 12 yrs.) to get the rid from stress of business. The entrance is like the entrance of a palace and you feel like a king when you enter the hotel. A huge lush green lawn and parking outside. There are some outdoor playing instruments are also available near the lawn. When you enter the hotel you feel the luxury and richness of the hotel. Very huge and well decorated hall inside. Service of the hotel is so good. You can feel that somebody is always there to get your commands everytime. They have 24hrs. cafeteria also in which you can get softdrinks, juice, milkshakes, thick shakes, coffee and tea. I love the ice tea most.

Indoor game room is also available in which Table Tennis, Karrom board, Chess board and other games available which keeps your children occupied full day. Nice and reasonalbly sized swimming pool is also there. We were not able to enjoy the swimming pool as there was a very cool weather. They also organise camp fire in night. They have also cyber cafe room in which you can be in touch with your business. We also moved with hotel staff in nearest jungle Surgana. We saw leopard and rhyna in that jungle. So, you can enjoy night safari also there.

The best and most enjoyable part of the hotel is their food. They are serving pure veg food over there. I am non-vegetarian, but I never thought to miss their food for a single time. They have plenty of varieties in Breakfast and Hightea. They serve Gujarati, Punjabi, South Indian and Chinese food there. You can order blindly there without doubting on the taste.

They also helped us in routing remote location surrounding saputara like Mahal, Bardipada, Pandav gufa, Surgana, Mayadevi, Pampa sarovar, Shabri dham etc.

Overall, nice experience there and all these was in just Rs.3000 per day.

I an my husband went for a Honeymoon....n we didn't had any reservation made...the only room left insaputara was shiilpi. And the frontdesk guy told us about 3000 n than the total came to 4000. SO always be careful when u pay so many rupess n you find it luxrious but they are just greedy peeople down there.

Especially was unhappy with the bed which were separate from each other...:( THe write in massage included..but there were no people in masaage parlour too..it was all closed..n when i requested the manger to do something gud with the money...he didn't do it
