Stayed here for two nights in December.
I had visited Manas about 3 years back and had also written a review then. On my subsequent visit to this property - I expected the same level of pleasure if not more.
The reservation was quick from their Mumbai office. My holiday agent quoted me a higher rate for the Valley side rooms - so I bargained as much as possible with the Mumbai office and on check in was upgraded to a Valley Villa. This, I had expected.
The rooms have not really been renovated post my last stay. The rooms definitely need a new touch of paint and better furniture. The bed linen also needs to change with changing times. Nothing pleases me more than comfortable and nice bed. In this case, the mattress, linen and pillows have lived their age. I'd appreciate if the aircon in the room also had a heater option included for winters.
The restaurant team need to pull up their socks. Most items in the menu were not available! It was taking a lot of time for the dishes to arrive. They also would not arrive in the sequence it was supposed to. Since it was a weekday, they did not have a buffet spread - but I would have ideally preferred that. For whatever was served - the quality was outstanding - but above average. Breakfast was reasonably good (all dishes).
The resort has nothing to ensure guests pass their time. There isn't a Spa and there aren't too many activities. With such a large space - I am sure they can think of something. Not going back.
