Hotel/apartments are located at excellent point. Just near the water front. Location wise it is great. Parking facility is also there. But service is not up-to the mark. Although they upgrade me from studio to one BHK. But beds are not clean as per hotels standards. Wash room lighting is very poor. Wash basin was leaking al the time (room no.412). Have to remind them so many times for fresh towels as the cleaning staff forget to replace (as he took away the dirty one) breakfast is OK
not much variety. My stay was from 27th April to 29th April 2014.

I had stayed with my family and relatives, we had booked two 1BHK . We were impressed with the spic and span room. The hotel location is terrific and it is great to walk on the promenade in the evening. They have a decent spread of breakfast which is served complimentary to the guests. In addition there are a lot of other eating options .Guests staying at the hotel get a 10% discount on select restaurants located on the promenade .In a nutshell it is a good bet to stay if you are visiting Lavasa.
