It is more of a place for corporate gathering.. It's not very relaxing and peaceful because of the corporate or group stay at the hotel. Food choices are also ok, more like a local mess in out skirt areas..

This hotel is fine, not great. The rooms are large and some have decent views of the hills. Comfortable bed, terrible pillows. Service is satisfactory although one or two at reception seemed to have a 'couldn't care less' attitude. What is incredible is how much they charge here. Hotels in India are not always good value but this is really in a league of its own. The room and bathroom have a 1970s air about them. You even have to pay for Wifi (if you can get it to work) and water. Did not try the buffet. A la carte restaurant had good food but again, relatively pricey. Rates for taxis are also far too high. I do wonder how they get away with it - I could not recommend at these rates - maybe it is just lack of competition?

This was a quick break from busy day's of Mumbai. We went there with lot of expectation but the hotel didn't lived up to that. We had problems in finding room. One of the rooms had water flowing out from AC. Some rooms were just at the top of entrance/parking. Wet area was good and we had good time there. Food was good. Service needs lot of attention.

I regularly go this resort more out of lack of choice than the love for it.the resort is perfectly located just 100 odd metres off the old mumbai-pune highway . It's a sprawling property with more than adequate garden area, many many restaurants, banquets and rooms.some of the rooms have been recently renovated and are a pleasure to stay in . The suites I would only recommend if you get a good deal or they seem overpriced.IMHO the buffet is REALLY nice since I'm a vegetarian and I get more than enough choice to satiate my hunger and then some.the live piano in the evenings is just an
added soothing perk apart from the obvious lovely weather of the hills.The service for us has always been good but that could be because of the regularity with which we visit the place.
P S :-The lifts though are a perfect place to be in with a new girlfriend because of their tiny size:)

Pros:
1) Great food
2) Good service provided. The room service was prompt
3) Convenient Location
Cons:
1) Cockroaches (huge ones) in the bathroom when I entered.
2) Too expensive for the amenities provided. Almost as much as staying in a 5 star resort in the major cities of the world
3) Room layout was not good. 2 twin beds were joined to make a double bed.
4) Smelly interiors. Although the room service was prompt to come with room fresheners.
5) Got a room without any good view.

Room Tip: Please ask for the room to be disinfected/sprayed with pesticides.

Fariyas was a great resort about 20 years back but over the years I feel the resort is slowly turning into a shadow of it's old self. Recently during my stay I was marveled by the large lobby with teak wood polish but the room i stayed in didn't mirror any of the grandness, the carpet leading to the room were torn at places and the room wall had cracks. The staff service is prompt and cordial; the indoor pool is inviting and makes for a nice swim so do the 4 slides in the water park, that where all the fun is - all of which to an extent make up for the condition of the room. the food is yum but a little too steeply priced just like the rooms. I guess its time the resort re-checked it rates and worked towards building a Fariyas as it was years back - Grand, Beautiful and Tranquil.....A walk in the lawns makes up for all the flaws as the view is serene especially during the evenings....but for the price of the room ?
