“Good on the outside average on the inside”
Reviewed July 9, 2011

Had visited for a day to attend a meeting . Very good surroundings, beautiful garden and swimming pool. However the rooms are just average. The food is decent but not special.

Overall an average resort with good surroundings. Not a luxury but just adequate for business.

You can have a better choice in Lonavala.

We arrived at the hotel at 3 am in the morning when no other hotel room was available in Lonavala, and most other hotels were charging exhorbitant prices... the reception guy was helpful and offered us a good rate... we were five of us so we took a suite with two bedrooms.. overall we had a good one night.. had decent breakfast and left in the morning.. satisfied with the overall experience.

The place n facilities are nice. food is ok. both veg & non-veg is available.
We stayed in the honeymoon suite room at a bargain price of Rs.10,000 (for 2 days)since that was an off season..
Room was nice with jacuzzi & garden view.. food place was close by so we cud order the food n he wud get it to the room. room had LCD tv as well.
Swimming pool was unclean thou.
Garden was well maintained.. we wud hv morning tea sitting in the garden which was nice.
One drawback of the rooms - to get to the room we had to climb down lot of staires n same with coming out.. if there's old person in family they will find it difficult going up n down the never-ending staircase.

All in all gud place to chill with family ..

The hotel has some very good rooms...with features like in-room jacuzzi.
A large swimming pool with a beautiful garden just next to it. Also other facilities like a games, room, gym, spa, etc are available. They also have buffet meals..just one non-veg dish per meal though. An outdoor bar & restaurant with karaoke facilities is also available in the evenings.

Overall it is a advisable place to stay at, especially for travelers from Mumbai & Pune.

We had visited the Bijis Hill Retreat in the Diwali vacation. The hotel from outside looked unclean due to the repairing works. The rooms were quite good. The food served was good. The swimming pool was a bit too small. The staff were very good. All rooms don't have a good view. Overall a good budget hotel in Lonavala.

This hotel is just a little start of the highway and is a little far from central Lonavala. Its at a very peaceful location. The restaurant served good food (can do better though). The only thing unpleasent thing about my stay here was the air conditioning that seemed to be not working at times & sometimes the cooling was way too much freezing. I am sure that was just a case with my room though... Anyways, its a decent hotel to stay at & I would recommend it to all... Just make sure that you bargain the price at the hotel thought or otherwise you get good deals on Websites...
