“MTDC Panshet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

we stayed at MTDC resort for just one day. There is not much to do around in Panshet. There are 2 dams Panshet and Warasgoan dam near by. Panshet dam was closed but boating (water scooter and speed boat only) was available at Warasgoan dam. The rooms were big, neat and clean. Only amenities available are table tennis (carry your own rackets and) and carrom. I think it is a nice place to stay especially during monsoon. For other seasons, you can go there and chill. Food is good but options are limited.

Its an old property recently reopened after 4-5 years , earlier known as barrons club. Located on a hill top around lot of trees , it a very peaceful place . Recomended for people who want to get away from the maddneing crowds. Would be beautiful in the rainy season. Rooms a huge and have bacic amenities. Furniture is very old and needs upgrade. The game room has a brand new TT table and carrom board. Nothing much to do except boating at both dams

To start with Its a place to leisure and do nothing and not for the guys who are high on adrenaline. Its one of the better MTDC hotels (I have visited nearly all of them) in terms of hygiene and cleanliness as its still new and not so popular. It would take around 5 Hrs to travel (we had been in a tempo traveler as a family grp of 14) from Mumbai as it was a big vehicle. The rooms here are huge (not just big). Had it been a private hotel each room could have accommodated min 5-6 beds. The staff is scarce (just 3) hence don’t expect any sort of pampering or room service. There is a generator which does not work every time but as its cold you won’t feel it. (Don’t forget it's MTDC ... :)...)
The food needs to be ordered well in advance (2-3 hrs) from the room so that the staff can cook it in else it may never arrive as the room service attendants are the 1 who cook as well as serve you (Multi-tasking of the highest order). In the evening /early morning you can walk up to the dam and have a sweet time boating and admiring the nature or by just being away from the city life.
You may not get mobile network in the rooms even if you manage to get by chance, the signals would be very week (a blessing in disguise).
Highly recommended in case you want to have a welcome break from your routine stressful life over the week-end.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 1st floor are better.

Sorry for delayed blog.
To share the experience @Panshet,MTDC is the only option as hillock.Please note panshet unlike other tourist destinaton dont have more choice for lodging as well as food but believe me mtdc offers excellent food.Panshet and varasgaon backwaters are on either side of mtdc resort &literally walkable distance unless your are lazy:).
Suggestion for tour planners please do not plan only for panshet itself as you would get bore in wbackwater & may combine lavasa as well the way i did.
Now you have 2 choice to travel from panshet .either traditional chandni chowk diversion or hidden potholled internal road by the side of varasgaon backwaters throughout right till lavasa . Suggest internal road for SUV's or vehicled with gd clearance else you may damage ur vehivle.....all the best,happy touring!!!

Room Tip: its all same room across resort

The MTDC resort unlike our like our expectations was very clean. much better than the mtdc standards. offcourse it could still be better. however, it was good and the bedsheets were clean. the rooms were very big. if your going in a big family4-5 ppl can easily accomadate in a room. Also. the food was very decent. the location is superb. they have some indoor games as well. good for a one to 2 night stay

Room Tip: all the rooms are good

We went there with a huge family group - across three generations, to celebrate new year's eve. the resort is a little difficult to find. its a huge property which has been partially revamped. since the rooms were new, they were in great condition. there was also a TT table and carrom board. there was space for a pool but that part hasnt been done up yet. service is quite good and food is also good enough ( for the remoteness of the place, its awesome :-))
the resort is walking distance from two dams - panshet and varasgaon. both have beautiful lakes and some good options of water sports - canoeing, paddle baots, motor boats, surfing with motor boats and also a full fledge moving platform with tables and chairs which can be rented for a couple of hours for a meal and which can be taken to the middle of the lake.
location is nice and peaceful and the water rides just about add the perfect amount of adventure to it.
