Its a tiny little place tugged away on swirling road behind the Fariyas Hotel in Lonavala. Comparing with the Sarovar Portico standards, it is a small property. In fact, the smallest in the group. However that doesn't make the experience any bad. I would actually think, the compact nature of the place makes it feel quite private.
The place has a great ambiance. The unique curved structure ensures that none of the rooms peep into each other and you have an unhindered 270 degree view of the beautiful valley behind the hotel. The tiny little swimming pool in the lawn further enhances the ambiance. In the evening when the lights come-up, the tastefully done front lawn and pool side further add to visual impact. However the reception could have been better.
The rooms are comfortably sized and the interiors are quite modest. The beds are comfortable. The only the disappointment was the archaic TV in the room. The room, sheets and the bathroom are clean and smell nice too.
The icing on the cake is restaurant and their service. Do not miss out on their chicken preparations. I tried the Chicken Khatta Pyaaz and, I will confess, it was simply awesome. The chicken was very soft and juicy. The vegetables and salads feel so fresh as if they were plucked by the chef just on his way to work.
If you manage to get a discounted rate at this place, it is simply worth the money. Would recommend it to all.
