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.
