I happened to stay here for 2 nights due to hill-station being good for photo-shoots. Im am auto journalist and hence need to be around the Lonavala-Lavasa road for early morning shoot of cars we had with us. The good point about the property is that it is bang on the main highway (old NH4) and also right opp to the cut from where the road leads into Lonavala / bushi dam / the tourist spots / Lavasa.
We got a ground floor room with a decent balcony for I guess 2750 if I may remember correctly. The room wasnt very lavish but roomy nonetheless. The washroom though was on the smaller side. The property in itself is a typical time share kinda resort with apartment type buildings.
Food was tasty and priced well. The next morning though we came to know about the real picture of the resort - this place is often used by companies for their conference and once we were back from our photo-shoot, we proceeded for breakfast just to find the place swarming with employees of some company. We literally had to fight for space just to stand and eat food! The food in itself was okish with limited options to choose from!
In all, the plus point is the location though at the same time, we missed being in the middle of nowhere like some of the other similar priced resorts. I guess you get what you pay for..
