We stayed at Zara's for a night to enjoy the weekend out of the city.

We selected the place by looking it up on TripAdvisor and saw that the photographs were very good. As always, the photos hype up the place, make it look grander than it is.

The pool was small and average, in a location that is visible to everyone entering the gate of the hotel. The food was average and the service so-so.

The rooms were comfortable, but not as clean. Had to call someone to wipe the paan pichkari a prior patron left behind. There was fungus on the walls which gave a musty smell to the room.

The price of the hotel is decent and access is good.

After reading good reviews of Zara Resort me and my wife decided to give it a try and went to the place without prior booking and here is what happened, I asked for Deluxe room and as per some travel booking webpages it was quoted to be in the range of Rs. 2800 and Rs. 3300 all inclusive but I was quoted Rs. 5600 all inclusive, when I informed them prices in travel portal they rudely told to book it from those website which I did, next day morning I called & told them that we are checking out and to keep our bills ready, now in the bills they charged Room rent as Rs. 2600 all inclusive as this guy was not aware that I was over quoted the other day by other staff members and Also that we booked our room through travel portal which I informed him, cleared our other bills and left never to return again.

Food quality and Property though is good.

I have been to this hotel few days ago. It's a nice hotel, easy access from railway station, good location, nice entrance. Lobby could be more lively and spacious. Restaurant goes awesome on location but food quality and varieties have got a lot more to do. Pool is located very well but looks a little small. Rooms are very good, clean and spacious though mattress are a little hard and could have been better. Garden Views from rooms give freshness to eyes. Overall a nice hotel which can be managed well to make people experience this awesome property.

Room Tip: Pick a room with balcony and garden view.

We stayed at Zara's resort for celebration of my and my hubby's birthday which was on 21st and 22nd June 2014. I found Zara is the most convenient and reasonable hotel for weekend stay.Mr Naresh and Mr Sheikh and other staff members of the hotel were very co-operative and helpful. Rooms were neatly cleaned, with proper AC. Food quality was good and very reasonable as compared to Lonavala hotels. Variety of dishes were available for Breakfast, lunch & dinner with prompt service. Opposite Zara Hotel there is once Chapel which is also very nice and peaceful place for visit . Overall we had a nice experience. Hope to get room no 206 again.

Room Tip: All the rooms are nice, except pent house, but rooms with balcony will be much more comfortable.

The entire setting of Zara separate's itself from the rest. The Ambiance makes you fall in love with it when your not there. Its perfect place for spending some quality time with your loved ones may be your fiancee, wife,children or friends. As far as connectivity is concern, its simple & suits every pocket. Tranquility is what Zara defines.. The Rooms are spacious, neat, positive environment which doubles the experience . Yes its another thing that once your there, your don't feel like going anywhere else because of the peace you attain once there.

Good Food, Great Staff Including the pantry guys, should add more options to Deserts. The guy at the reception is of great help for people to book cabs, or suggest places.

Loved the experience & will surely love to come back again.

Room Tip: Higher Floors offer a better view of the surroundings.

I stayed at Zara's Resort for one night on my first visit to Lonavala-Khandala. The property is located at a convenient place on old mumbai-pune highway, and at just stone throws away from a place where waterfall can be seen.

Pros:

-- Good, Nice, Clean, Well Kept, Spacious Room with a balcony to sit and relax
-- Ample Parking Space
-- Prompt Service
-- Swimming Pool Overlooking Dining Area
-- Economical Food

Cons:
-- Considering the room price, breakfast spread was limited. But whatever food items were there, they were good and tasty.
-- Property is in limited area and nothing much to explore inside the property
-- A little heavy on Cost

I would say, it is a nice place for families to stay for a overnight or for two.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the parking seem a better and quieter choice
