“KOLAD @ BEST”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

had fun meeting friends after a gap of tiring 2 years, drove to empower camp from ghatkopar in 3 hours with a break.

approaching empower makes a person worried due to its very rough & tough road with stones ready to give u a bumpy ride.
welcome @ great start with kokum sharbat and some briefing by captain singh.
followed by a great lunch , very courteous and friendly people to take care and spoil you.

2 veg,roti,rice,dal,sweet,salad,papad & what to expect more it was a tummy full of delicacies.

we started adventure by doing burma bridge ( khatron ke khiladi fame ) good and most dare devil stunt. following by archery, rope climbing etc.

when it started off in night we got a good camp fire lit by the staff and managers to make our stay memorable offering us complimentary snacks too.

2nd day we had kayak which is in its own premises followed by flying fox, and few games what they made us play.

most clean air, and beautiful environment to stay for a couple of days with night temp dropping take care of winter back packs.

one can enjoy along with family with all adventure activities and fun along with best part silence and peace of mind.

* imp - only tata docomo and bsnl networks are accessible properly, so all techies do drop your gadgets @ home/office and enjoy a peaceful vacation.

enjoy ;) :)

This is a huge place covering some hundred acres including hills, a big lake and play area. There aren't much equipments and options though for adventure sports - at least that's not what met my eyes. Lot's of greenery all around and loads and loads of corporate games that the trainers and guides know how to get you involved in. Overall I liked the place, but not too much. The road to this location is terrible though.

I was completely impressed with Brig. Bhasin's contribution in the area of Outbound Learning. In the first meeting itself my organization decided on finalizing empower for a 2 day team outbound for 35 participants. In the second meeting, the requirement changed overnight and we had to arrange the same outbound for 85 participants with only 2 days to organize everything. It was a nightmare even when I remember today. Brig Bhasin & empower team however managed everything right from accomodation, food, services & activities etc.
As soon as we reached the camp we felt the warmth and hospitality of the staff around. The 2 days that we spent in the camp were some of the best experiences that we had. The program was so uniquely designed to perfectly address our business need. Brig Bhasin's thorough research on our business brought about such uniqueness into the program. Each 85 participant were able to take back some unique experience and learning from the program. Ex-Prahar needs a special mention here, one activity which covered all aspect of team leadership and team building.
The camp was very well maintained with acres of open space, lake on one side with hills on the other. The place was so peaceful at night and you could only hear the sound of nocturnal creatures. You always long for such peace when you are staying in a city like Mumbai.
If you are looking for Luxury, this is not the place for you.The entire camp has a very rustic & rough feel to it. The tents are clean with bare minimum necessities. I really enjoyed it that way. I guess the rooms are kept a way to give a feel of the jungle. When you are at empower you are totaly isolated from the rest of the world. It is best to keep your phones and your gadgets switched of as they don’t work here. You can however connect with your family/friends through the payphone available.
The food was amazing. Mouth smacking homely food. Excellent service and staff.

The place is perfect for big team outbound & corporate training. Experience and learning which will stay for a lifetime. Thanks to Team Empower.

Room Tip: Tent rooms are best option.

It was my first time at a resort like this which has a host of adventure activities within the premises. The rooms were well maintained and the service was amazing. Felt like home for the 3 days at empower activity camp.

The 50 acre property is full of greenery with their own lake for kayaking and other water acitivites.
Not only for corporates but empower resort is a lovely place for a 2 day trip for group of 6 to 8 people whether family or friends.

Room Tip: Go for the cottage accommodation as it is spacious and nearer to the ghazebo. The view from the cott...

This was my second visit to Empower camp. We stayed there for 2 nights and did a Team Building Outbound session with Brig Bhasin. It was an enjoyable and insightful experience, as anticipated!

Brig Bhasin is an accomplished leader having 4 decades of experience. He effortlessly conducted the program for our group which was comprised of mid-senior level managers.

The camp is nicely setup in a serene natural environment. One should not expect 5 star luxury from them, but, infrastrucure provided is pretty decent. Approach road to the camp needs urgent atention, though.

Overall, good experience. Looking forward to visit again.

Room Tip: You are not going to go there to stay in a room
