We had a calm and quite and pollution Diwali here. The ambiance is excellent. The staff very co-operative and helpful. The room sizes were good and the amenities good. The housekeeping staff did an excellent job of cleaning the room everyday. Overall the hotel is neat and clean. The external walls need painting at the earliest and the minimal leakages in the internal wall should be attended to asap.

Now - you provide a microwave, you provide an induction stove - but where are the vessels /crockery to use them. In case you don't provide then please inform so that we can carry our own stuff if necessary.

Room Tip: The promenade facing rooms are kind of noisy. If you need complete calm the mountain side is better.

The property is below average.

the rooms are big, but beyond that its very basic.

the food below average, the breakfast served is not meeting even the basic standards
the quality of food served is inferior.

the approach to the property is ok, but needs a makeover, if kept well then it can be a nice retreat.

though the place (Lavasa) is good and have some better options to stay.

I visited Lavasa with a group of old friends and I loved every minute of my stay (2nd /3rd Oct, 2013) in Lavasa, thanks to Waterfront Shaw. The hotel staff made sure that our stay was a very comfortable one by taking great care of us. Waterfront by far is the best choice as it provided us with clean, spacious, well equipped apartments(along with kitchenette) with beautiful window views, with absolutely prompt and courteous staff service, a homely atmosphere, perfect location(on the promenade itself), restaurants offering different types of cuisines and ambience to match within reach. We were well guided and arrangements were taken care of for places to go see and things to do in Lavasa.(Watersports, boating, sound and light water fountain show, convention centre, swimming, spas and other luxurious facilities at the club, etc.) One of the best in hospitality. Thank you Waterfront Shaw for giving me a home away from home on my 2 days break :-). You made me fall in love with Lavasa. Will definitely be back with u to relive the experience

Waterfront Shaw has easily become one of my favourite places to spend a long weekend away from Mumbai. The hotel location is one of the best in Lavasa and the hospitality is simply fabulous. The rooms/studios are spacious, very clean and well equipped - perfect for a small family to stay comfortably. The service is prompt and very courteous. The food in the restaurants caters to all tastes - indian, continental, fast food and chinese - and each cuisine is worth trying. You possibly cant get bored here with long walks, cycling, visit to the Dasvino spa or simply chilling and enjoying the ambience on the promenade. Big Thumbs Up to Waterfront Shaw and its staff. Thank you for a great stay always :)

Room Tip: The one bedroom studio rooms, facing away from the promenade are fantastic.
