“A good break”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

Stayed there on a weekend. The location is bit out but that what made it so peacefull.The travel from pune to lavasa. The view is quiet scenic. Road in some place is bad and passing through villages so drive becomes bumpy and slow at times . As you enter lavasa it a total different story. There are security staff to guide at every corner. We had stayed in waterfront shaw with promenade view. We had a 1 BHK. Which had great. Right next to water and happening area. A lot of construction going on continuously and also due to people talking loudly at the promenade which causes a lot of noise sometimes otherwise peaceful. It has a lot of activity like kids playing area,toy train, water show (which was awesome), adventure sports were also available (not everything) only at a price, indoor golf, cycling at promenade and archery. The area is very clean with garbage box and toilets provided at various locations and the staff is very helping. Some area near promenade was not fenced and could result with children falling off. Security guards as said is all over the place but a bit rowdy/ill mannered. Observed a female shouting at security staff at children play area as he was gawking at her. Need to put a little more poster's with regards to safety and where to sit and where not to as security will come and start argue even if you are sitting in safe place with fences as they have been told by there superior. With no notice's it becomes unclear what is problem as the area is fenced and you are no way near fence or water. Food is good in The American dinner. Went to Oriental octopus and Chor bizarre also but oriental octupus tried to give us wrong food saving the other one is not available without out consent and chor bizarre the chicken was served uncooked. Both the instance the manager was informed.

Room Tip: Choose waterfront facing room.

Right from the journey through the scenic mountains, ghats till we left everything was awesome. The rooms are huge felt like home. We took 2bhk so got water view. The view is breathtaking. The food is out of this world. To add to this the water show which start at 7pm reminded me my stay in las vegas (bellagio)...over all very very happy and enjoyed my stay.

Only problem was with bathroom service. Conveyed to the staff which can be taken care off.

Room Tip: go for a 2bhk if u hav a big family than going for two 1bhk rooms...U get a better view......

We visited Lavasa with my family. Drive to Lavasa is very picturesque that compels you to halt at certain locations to approve of the exquisiteness in and around Lavasa. Upon arrival we received warm welcome by trained front desk staff with smile on their faces. We chose two big apartments each having a living room, kitchen and a bed room. The apartment was specious and very comfortable. It has convertible sofa cum bed that makes two persons to sleep well. The ambience is very soothing and you get beautiful scenic view of the promenade/Lake from the room. It is amazing to watch evening light show from the room balcony.
You have many choices for entertainment like, hop on hop off bus ride, a long leisurely walk by the lake side, water sports and nature trails are all very reviving. There is a boating facility in the proximity of the hotel which takes you around the lake for limited time. The boats are maintained well. Speed boat rides are also on offer but everything is priced high.
For those crazy for an excursion / trekking, there exists lot many scenic & beautiful places around Lavasa.
Here's nothing much to do in the city except relax & enjoy the beautiful landscapes & the ambiance of the place.
Lavasa is worth a visit for a day or two if you go with a family.
We Loved it and Hope to visit again and again..!! Love Lavasa
Lat but not least the staff is very well trained, courteous, friendly headed by Mr. Mukesh Kumar, The General Manager. The cleanliness in very well and deserves accolade. Well Done. Keep it up…!!!

The Waterfront shaw was full of surprises. We rented the promenade facing 1 bhk ( room no 323). On check in , we got a nice welcome drink. On entering the apartment, we were astonished to see the huge living room and bathroom. The bedroom was also very good (but only lacked a TV - which we wish they could add). Cleanliness was at its best. The apartment was well equipped. In the evening, when we returned from dinner, we were surprised to see that the rooms were cleaned and made up and they kept some chocolates on the bed. In the morning our car was well washed. The rooms had high speed Wi - fi. While checking out, they provided us with packed mineral water bottles. The staff was extremely courteous. Breakfast had a good variety and food quality was good. I would highly recommend this place.

We booked a room through a travel portal, and got a decent deal for peak season period. The room was nice. However, it was one part of a double room. So when the other room had a large group, even general convesation could be overheard. Quite a disturbance.
However they were prompt to get the group to quiten down at night.
They were also prompt to provide an ironing board.

A good advantage is the proximity to the restaurants and activities. The room had a cooktop and a microwave with cutlery, so you can get food from the restaurant and eat in the room (if you want to)

Bathroom was clean, the sheets were clean. Some parts of the paint were chipping but overall the room was nice.

Room Tip: Anything other than top floor rooms dont have much of a view - Mountain or Promenade facing. So take...
