The best part about a vacation is that one gets to relax ! This is a place which scores full marks on that aspect. Stayed there in November and had booked the Kotwal and Peerboy rooms , was a perfect place which opened up to the verandah and our kids had a blast. The place is perfectly located close to the lake giving one too many options to visit the tourist points as well as enjoy the activities such as river crossing , valley crossing etc. Also, the walk to the hustle bustle of the market was not too far and fun to walk .
The only slight drawback about the place is the food. There are absolutely no a la carte options available , though whatever is served is very good though priced very steep ! The sit down dinner where 4 course meal is served on a beautiful table is the highlight . Breakfast options also very limited. Considering the tarriff charged the food options could be better.
Service is very good and we were always greeted by smiling helpers.
Would certainly go back !
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The paths once cleared by the British in the forests of Matheran, making it the last British hill station have acquired a new identity as the place where Bombay’s movers and shakers which include filmstars and businessmen come to spend a few quiet and peaceful days.Perched atop the Sahyadri ranges, Matheran is Asia’s only pedestrian hill resort. Chug up in a toy train, trot, or arrive in a palanquin, past gigantic mansions built by the British, the Parsis, and the Bohras. The Verandah in the Forest was the second house to be built on the isolated Western Ghats, by Captain Barr. Now, with every facility in place, it is reputed to be second to none! Indeed, the nobility of the proportions of The Verandah bring civilizational honour to the Sahyadri ranges. Lounge like never before in this verandah of your dreams. Read under the highest domestic ceiling you would have known in the salon – 12 metres/35 feet high. Stroll down to Charlotte Lake. Or take longer walks with a picnic basket. Relish the local cuisines. Heave your chest, muscle your calves, take all the oxygen back in your lungs. Link your planet with your own two feet.Find space for more space in your mind. Or lose yourself to find yourself anew.Long after you return, you will wonder who would have dared to sprawl out such a tree-home space in such spell-binding wilderness? ... more less
