“Not bad!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013

Very close to dam and water sports. Located in a very calm and scenic area.
Resort also has table tennis and carom for chilling around. Staff is helpful. Food is not bad.
Rooms, big and spacious, you probably don't need these big rooms because you find TV very small then.
Bathrooms could be cleaner.
Overall I would have given 3 rating, but for its location, it couldn't be at a better place. Hence, 4.

Room Tip: Higher floors have a better view.

The Panshet resort is located very close to the water sports/activities area.

The rooms are big, linen ver clean, the staff are very friendly and accommodating. My daughter wanted to have bata wadas, though it was inconvienent, they obliged and made her day.

The restaurant area opens into a small garden. In the morning, you catch a lot of birds, squirrels.

Just felt very relaxed and happy at this resort.

They have finished building the swimming pool. So it will be more fun post December.

Room Tip: The AC rooms are bigger

We roam around to dig for better option than MTDC resort, but this was the only accommodation found reliable and convenient place, Near to dam.
It gives nice view from room (1st floor facing MTDC gate). Room was spacious and clean.
Heavy rain started by 6 and all lights gone. Receptionist said, once watchmen will come he will switch on generator. Finally in late light electricity came for some time. We couldn’t able to watch TV neither got hot water. Whole night it was thundering, lightening.
In passage / veranda there was no provision for candles. We have to depend on our mobile lights. It was a bit danger and scary. Looked like Bhoot Bangla.
Food was average, but quick. I ordered for rice and got full chilled "Cold" rice when inquired attendant said, it’s just prepared. But nicely he replaced it with better quality rice.
I can say average stay; positive point was nice scenery around. They have well maintained the lawn.

Room Tip: Carry your own dry snacks, food, fruits.

Visited MTDC Panshet in July 2013. MTDC Panshet is located at center of Panshet dam and Varasgaon dam. Resort is small having only 10-12 rooms. But all the rooms are spacious and big having 2 double bed, 1 single bed and sofa in each room. It cost us Rs.2300 per night. Resort has restaurant which servers tasty and fresh food; only you have to place your order in advance to avoid delays. As it was raining; electricity was is the issues; however MTDC guys were managing with backup generators. Overall the experience was nice and you can definitely visit along the family.

I had visited Panshet MTDC in the month of June 2013. Panshet is a good place for those who like nature and peace. There is nothing much to do except boating which is at a kilometre distance from MTDC. A small hotel serves tea and pakodas near lake.Now about the resort , it is a small resort with very big rooms. The rooms are decent and clean. Food served is like home made food. Over all it is above expectation from MTDC.

We travelled to Panshet MTDC on first weekend of June 2013 and had a weekend stay.
It was a long ride through bumpy roads from Pune but finally to see MTDC was a relief. It’s a nice cozy resort, above expectation for a remote place like Panshet. MTDC is beautifully located at the center of the road which bifurcates into Panshet dam and Varasgao dam. The surroundings are picturesque.
Family rooms were spacious, clean and organized with amenities like tv, ac, geysers, extra bed, sofa, table, wardrobes; especially room #7. There was also a recreational room with TT and carom board.
The 3D map near the reception was worth observing. 3D glasses available at the reception free of cost.
Food was savory. Do taste Chicken Kolhapuri, Poha, Kanda Bhajji and Chai.
There were water sports at on backwaters of Panshet dam and Varasgao dam. Water sports at Panshet dam preferable.
Also, we would recommend you to visit Shri Kshetra Nilkantheshwar nearby. The climb is tiresome but you won’t regret the trekking. The place is serene and spiritual with deity idols depicting myriad mythological stories. This is one of the Lord Shiva’s ancient temples.
Overall, Panshet MTDC is a perfect weekend getaway. We had a great time.

Room Tip: Family room #7

Panshet is closer to the city of pune about 40 kilometers, If you dont have many days to travel with you yet want to get a feeling of being away, this is the place.
We went here in a group of friends booked two rooms with extra beds, the rooms are huuuge...while it has a doube bed (its spacious enough to occupy 3 double bed). You dont have any thing apart from this resort near by....you need to carry most of the eatables and beverages along with you (if you dont want to get constraint by what MTDC has to offer).
The food served is both vegetarian and non-veg was ok, and not so expensive.
Threre is a dam nearby....and being around a few mountains you can go for a hike or a short trek around this place.
Also on the dam there are water sports...like motor boats, kayaking etc. which we enjoyed.
We were also able to have a picnic on top of the dam (there was no one other than us on this dam...we enjoyed the privacy) This was a good place to have a picnic...I have been to this spot a couple of time with family for picnic ..a days trip.
"Please carry your print-out along with you, i had forgotten the printout of reservation, the resort did not have a printer, and the manager was not accepting the image on my smartphone,finally we searched the village nearby - the locals helped us locate a photostudio who had a printer and helped us take a print. we lost nearly an hour in this hunt while the families had to wait at the resort
Overall this is a good get away.
