“Brilliant location, great food excellent getaway”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

The drive to this place can be a bit tiring but were were prepared for it so no complains. The view from your balcony is more than likely going to be breathtaking. I've stayed here twice and I guess all the rooms look out on to the river valley.
The service was impeccable....the pool was clean and there was constantly someone there to help us with food and drinks etc.
The dinner was delightful and the restaurant manager suggested some things that all of us really enjoyed.
The breakfast was the usual fare but tasty. I was surprised there was no buffet spread but I guess that the occupancy was relatively low, they were trying to avoid wastage.
The rooms are comfy the only bit I thought was odd was that the lighting in the room can be quite dim unless you switch on most of the lights. The beds were clean and comfy. The AC worked well.
The bathrooms are clean and there is a walk-in shower. You might have to wait a bit for the water to warm up if you're using the geyser.
I guess the only thing I was miffed with is that I'd made a booking through agoda and did not notice that I've not chosen double occpancy for the rooms. It was three of us and we had taken two rooms. I just felt a bit cheated that no-one pointed out to me at the time of check-in that we will have to pay seperately for the third person. Specially when I spoke to their sales manager at the time fo checkout that this was an issue they had faced in the past with customers who had booked through agoda.
Never the less I enjoyed the stay, the views, the company I was in and last but not the least...the food.

Room Tip: Chose a superior room if you are willing to spend a little more and you will get a slightly better r...

Hotel / Resort is an about 5 hour drive (maybe 6) south of Mumbai.

Rooms are quite large, each I think with a balcony. Bathroom has a walk in shower.
The rooms design feels old and used, so is the bathroom, however everything is there, albeit very old and somewhat "used".

Beds are reasonable soft and comfortable.

Electric plugs are next to the desk and behind the night desk.

Internet is WLAN based. At least in the room that I was, it worked quite well, with FaceTime, VPN and Skype working. This is for sure an improvement over my last stay.

Food is good, breakfast somewhat simple, but totally adequate.

Service is friendly and the view is nice.

Laundry can only returned the next day, hence not much use.

The rooms have AC, but it is very loud and not comfortable.

So, yes, it is good, but not really very good. Price is on the high side, for what they offer.

Combination of Great location with superb place. Me n my husband with other couple visited this resort in 1st week of December. This resort is near main road. The climate was chilled. The facilities & services are very good. The staff is co-operative and looks after you requirement. Indoor games like table tennis and carom keeps you busy. Rooms are good. But the balcony is perfect. The view outside balcony is something to look for. You feel delighted with such a great view. Rooms have mini bar and tea/coffee maker. The restaurant serves you food with lesser waiting time. had a great time.

The location is superb - nestled in the mountains and close to the Parshuram temple although the place is more Lote Parshuram and not Chiplun proper. The hospitality leaves a lot to be desired. The rooms are decent (the balcony is super) but nothing special in terms of decor...something that you expect at that price. Food is pricey but tastes good. The package they offer is exorbitant if you consider the meager facilities they provide. And the staff could do with some value-added training in customer-centric behavior.

Room Tip: Spend good time at the lawn. Great experience.

Went there this week and its a great place with a great location. You can see the river from your balcony and if you get bored climb up the hill and come back for a swim. Nice place to relax without doing anything. Great place to view birds from your balcony. Foood isnt very great though and better head into Chiplun for lunch

Indeed...the most picturesque views one can imagine..that too from your window or balcony...especially if you can wake up to catch the sunrise..how the cloud cover lifts off the river...it is truly a breath taking view!!
Coming to the property itself...the rooms are very average...quite run down...television sets are ancient and the overall property screaming at its owners 'come ...renovate me'. This is what we felt, especially for the price we paid for a weekend there...Rs 17,000 for nights on an MAP plan!!
We felt that they are way to overpriced for what one ends up getting. Though the Taj tag has gone from the property, the Taj prices have stayed on!!
They have a good looking pool and my hubby did indulge...only to come back with a skin infection...so do be careful about it. Also, one must be ready to climb a lot of stairs to reach the pool area etc...
The good thing was the small massage place attached to the property...the lady was really good!

The staff was really sweet and looked after us to the best of their capabilities...they saw me admiring the flowers of a particular kind and I see them plucked and delivered to my room the next evening :)

The buffet break fast and dinner had a decent spread but the same cannot be said about its taste... and the service at the restaurant was a bit slow!!

All in all, I would not recommend it to anyone at this price...if its half the price..then it might be worth making a trip to Riverview.

Room Tip: Try the rooms on the first floor nearer to the reception..as the view is better...avoid the last roo...

Chiplun- Lote Parashuram will be more appropriate- is tucked away from the crowd. There are 2 attractions over there. one is this hotel which commands a great view of the vashisti river and the temple dedicated to lord parashurama- just 10 mins by walk from this hotel. hotel is good , excellent staff and absolutely peaceful. Though, bit expensive.
