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.
