“Awesome Honeymoon Stay !!”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

We had selected Citrus Chambers, Mahabaleshwar for our honeymoon stay after a lot of in-depth research about Mahabaleshwar based hotels and resorts. Personally I am a huge fan of setting up my own custom vacations.I like my own way of traveling.

I and my wife Sana stayed for our honeymoon at Citrus Chambers - Mahabaleshwar property during May 2013.

Our Experience :-

Its truly a heritage property. A boutique hotel with a unique calm and serene environment.

The resort lobby building resembles an old colonial look - amazing window panes and cafeteria on the side verandas.

The moment we stepped into the resort, we felt a sense of temperature cooling and freshness in the air which was really soothing to our faces. The resort is surrounded by lush green trees and colourful flowers all over which has a very calming effect. The check-in was super quick and the reception staff was extremely courteous to us with a welcoming smile.

The resort staff always used to greet us whenever they happen to see us on the campus.

The resort has a unique and sprawling colonial look campus with various accommodation types.
We had booked our stay in the Deluxe Room on the first floor. Our room was nicely set-up and and there was ambient lighting done with the help of antique looking lampshades. The room was extremely spacious and comfortable with a nice veranda in the front. The room was spacious enough to accommodate a family of four members. The room had a vintage or heritage look in terms of its furnishings. It was an unique experience for both me and my wife. The washroom wore a royal look and its ambience was very pleasing. We enjoyed sparkling cool water from the basin taps as a natural face wash. It was an unique and never felt before kind of experience. The room was located at the corner end of the building and hence there used to be complete calmness and peace. Room's A/C unit was a little noisy but acceptable.

In terms of the room interiors - it exceeded our expectations and the resort succeeded in making our honeymoon trip memorable for the lifetime.

The greatest advantage of Citrus Chambers is that this resort is situated just a 5 minutes walk away from the main Mahabaleshwar market. Hence we used to enjoy our late night strolls into the market without any worry of getting back early to the hotel room. Yet we did not feel any hustle and bustle of the busy market once inside the resort campus.

The campus of Citrus Chambers is truly amazing. It has those antique wooden chairs and tables placed all over at appropriate places for spending a wonderful morning or evening. One can pursue his book reading hobby or enjoy a delicious strawberry shake siting on one of those wooden chairs or just enjoy a masala chai in the evening !!

One place that we truly enjoyed during our stay at the Citrus Chambers was its poolside gazebo. This was the most romantic spot of our evening spends. We enjoyed it sooo much that we even had a poolside candle light dinner under the gazebo arranged exclusively for us on our last day. Santosh was the person in-charge for serving us the food along the pool-side and his service was truly up to the mark. A very well-mannered person. The chef had prepared an excellent Veg. Biryani for us. It was truly exotic in taste with rich traditional Indian spices.

The resort had an excellent buffet breakfast spread served every morning. There were lots of choices including Indian, Continental, Omelettes, freshly cut fruits and a couple of juices and shakes too.

Mr. Purnendu Ghosh, who was the manager in-charge for food and beverages section was always kind enough to walk up to us every morning at the breakfast table to ensure that we enjoyed our stay at the resort.
One thing that we missed at Citrus Chambers was the oven for serving wood-fired pizzas. We had to go to Evershine Resort nearby to enjoy its famous wood-fired pizzas.

The resort even has a free WiFi all over the campus with excellent speed. However we discovered it on our last day of the stay as we weren't informed in advance at the time of check-in.

The resort has indoor sports such as carom boards, table tennis and even has outdoor umbrellas for enjoying a barbecue meal.

To summarize - your search for stay in Mahabaleshwar should end here at Citrus Chambers !!

Regards,
Shadab & Sana

We stayed at Cirus just before Christmas eve 2013, though stay was comfortable, however a disappointed by the maintenance of the rooms...
We booked the suite room, large rooms and next to the play area... also got robbed of all the snacks by the monkeys... massive huge ones to watch out!!!
The suite room is in bad need of paint touch up or over all redoing the decor, window latch broken, some of lights not working, the light control panels are disconnected by the points, so ideally you need to get up and use the switch which is frustrating as the night lamp switch points are below the tables, you need to bend to use.
Food is excellent, the staff arranged for any special requirement for my child!!!
Also had put in a request for candle light dinner, which was cancelled without any intimation, not happy on this!
As the hotel is bang in market place.. it is best if there is emergency requirement or you wanna walk to market.
Avoid any Tuesday trip to Hotel, as the road is entirely blocked by the local vegetable market, becomes a task to move in and out.
May return to the hotel as it looked after all childs need... that is peace of mind!! But they need to check on prices if rooms are not maintained.

Room Tip: Avoid stay in Hotel on Tuesday.. due to local market which makes it a task to move in or out.

We stayed in this property for 2 nights. The staff is superb. They were very warm and friendly. The AC in our room was not working properly, we were given not just another room but were upgraded to a suite! It was a fantastic experience. The food is super yummy! Market place is just a 5 mins. walk from the resort which makes it very easy if you are travelling with small kids. The pool is very well maintained. They even arrange a special candle lit dinner on the pool side if you ask for it.
Overall a wonderful experience. Would love to go again!

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms are better.

Recently been to Citrus Chambers, Mahabaleshwar. The location is very close to the market (5 min walk). With a small kid, it is comforting to have market location nearby in case of emergency. The Hotel also had a Doctor at a minutes call. The food quality was excellent and they had a good mix everyday to keep you interested. The real winner is the Service offered. We are very thankful to Aamir Khan for arranging a candle light dinner for us on our marriage anniversary! Also, he took care of our food choices whenever we needed that extra help , especially for our kid. All the staff greeted us whenever they crossed by. Subrato (one of the staff members) kept my kid entertained when we settled for lunch or dinner or breakfast. Very friendly and enthu staff. Overall a wonderful experience! Thanks Citrus! Thanks Aamir :)

Room Tip: On tuesdays, the 2 min walk to the Hotel is closed because of weekly Market. The staff will help you...

We stayed at Citrus Chambers at Mahableshwar for the first time and were extremely happy with both the hotel, location and service made memorable 1st vacation with our baby…This place is colonial heritage. Spacious, spread out and amidst thick foliage and very near to market which is just 2 mins away.. Beautiful place for a relaxed holiday with good food, good service, good stay and awesome campus and plenty of parking.. even head Chef takes care of every guest choice in all ways… even of smallest demand.

Ours was American plan.. with yummy food.. of all kind of delicacies… Located close to the market, well- maintained property, spacious rooms. But the best part remains the courteous staff of the hotel with wonderful and excellent experience with best class hospitality and delicious food service. Subrato, Amir, Vikrant and everyone else was really co-operative and helpful in all ways. They made us so comfortable with baby food requirement. Our Anniversary celebration was made memorable by Citrus team… Thanks to you guys…

The place is in the heart of New Mahabaleshwar very close to Veena lake and other scenic points are also in close vicinity.
Any small problem referred to them is solved in no time. Our kid enjoyed greatly with the outdoor games. Overall stay was superb!!

Room Tip: Deluxe Rooms are too good and comfortable...

The place harks back to the lovable hill station's colonial heritage. Spacious, spread out and amidst thick foliage, Citrus is a beautiful sanctuary for a relaxed holiday. It is conveniently located (just a walk down the town's main strip, yet tucked away) and has plenty of parking. The stay is inclusive of breakfast, which is indeed a veritable spread of Indian and western fare. Our leisurely breakfast extended into a brunch. Great place, worth a visit and stay.
