This is arguably the best Hotel in Khandala, and is located at a beautiful location right on a ridge. The best time to visit would be during the monsoon season from June to September or in the winter.
The mountains are clad in all shades of green, a pleasant sight to the travel weary visitor.
The rooms are spacious, quiet, and have all modern amenities like hot cold water, central airconditioning, etc. The swimming pool, while small, is clean, and they have a small jacuzzi too.
Negatives though few were:
Wifi was not free.
Some of the rooms are at quite a distance from the lobby and stairs
Conference hall and grounds are at a distance, one has to walk downhill and then descend a few dozen steps to reach them.

Room Tip: If you do not want to walk too much, chose rooms close to the Lobby and stairs.

The view from the room is amazing. .. room was amazing with a step down to a section with sofa and a big balcony overlooking the verdant hillside greenery and waterfall (monsoons only I guess though not sure)...... though the expressway below disturbs the quiet, the overall feel still remains amazing. . Just wish that the highway didn't go from below the same hillside. .. then it would have been perfect.

Very clean rooms. .. good service. .. restaurant spreads are also good and tasty. ..

I stayed during long weekend with my family. My kids enjoyed every bits of stay. The best part was magnificient ghat view, one can lietrally see and hear the waterfall sound while relaxing in the sit-outs. Suman at reception Salim at Room Services was very cooperative and helpful. Athena Kaul was very effective Manager. But other guy at Recetion was arrogant amd non-cooperative, hence 1 star less !

Room Tip: Room No. 105 and all other adjoining Rooms was with the best view.
