“Best resort to stay in Mahabaleshwar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013 via mobile

We booked the hotel (2 deluxe rooms) through make my trip website. It was quick and confirmation came from hotel in an hour. The check in was smooth and efficiently done. The rooms were ready. The rooms and the entire hotel was very neat and clean. The pool and the garden was well maintained. It is located just 800 meters away from main market. But you don't have the view of a valley or mountains from this hotel.

The buffet breakfast has enough varieties. Especially live dosa counter was excellent. They made very tasty and properly made dosa varieties. Sambar was also very tasty. The pool side restaurent serving wood fire pizzas, pastas and some Mediterranean delicacies. We tried pizza and Mediterranean platter. They were good (though pizza was little over cooked but it was tasty).

The gym was good and spa facility was nice (I never used it though).

Only disappointment was the swimming pool timing. The closed to pool one hour early than announced time. ( it was supposed to open till 7pm but it was closed at 6pm). The late night room service (food quality and choice wise) could have been better. They could not serve simple things like French fries or potato wedges. Though we get good sandwich and not so good burger.

Overall service quality, friendliness of the staff (everyone we came across) was excellent. They were not hesitant to help us by going out of the way.

I rate this property as good value for money proposition.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for reviewing Evershine - A Keys Resort in such detail. Coming from experienced holidaymaker who has travelled so avidly, your review is precious to all of us. I am glad to learn that check in was smooth and you liked the upkeep and hygiene at the resort. Your appreciation for food specially the dosas and pizzas has been passed on to our culinary team.
We have few valley view rooms from where you can also see the lake. However most of the rooms are either pool facing or forest. I convey my apologies for the early closure of the pool which in fact did get closed scheduled time at 6 pm. However some time on request we extend this for half an hour more.
As you have rightly pointed out our staff are our strength and they have been trained to be courteous and friendly and help even if it means bending the rule some times. I only wished they would have bended our directive of keeping the swimming pool on for one more hour which could have made you even happier.
Warm regards

Manoj Verma

Stayed at The Keys Evershine Hotel for 2 days in feb. 2013. The best hotel location in Mahableshwar at the base of hill that is Wilson Point and 3 minutes drive from the market, has a quiet, pristine environment.Ideal location for an early morning jog/walk. The hotel sports a spacious, magnificent lobby and well-appointed clean rooms.The swimming pool, the spacious lawns with seasonal flower beds, the fountain generate great ambience for a perfect holiday. Buffet lunches and dinners with a good spread by Chef Dubey were a delightful change from the limited fare doled out by other hotels in Mahableshwar. Special thanks to the Gen. Mgr. Manoj Verma who was very helpful in reservations /upgradation. I will happily recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a great holiday in a pristine environment.

Room Tip: rooms with balcony facing s/w pool or lawns are great

Dear Guest,
Thank you for sharing your view with tripadvsisor community. We appreciate your notings specially the strategic location of the resort which is less than a km from the market and right at the base while climbing the Wilson point which is the highest point in Mahabaleshwar. In fact many guests go out for morning jogging on Wilson point. The hotel has lots of greenery and trees coupled with our award winning horticulture and landscaping. One aspect that separates us from other hotels is our hygiene and upkeep standards which we try to maintain as per international five star standards.

Your appreciation on the food has been passed on to Chef Dubey and his culinary team. I do hope to see you gain this monsoon where you can literally see the clouds floating around the resort.
Warm regards

I have been visiting Mahabaleshwar since last 31 yrs and have stayed in almost all hotels in Mahabaleshwar but since last year it has been KEY AND ONLY KEY. We have stayed in Evershine suite, Junior suite, Deluxe room and its the best bargain for what we pay .The food is tempting and very tasty.It so happened that on many occasions our stomach was full but after seeing the tempting variety we had another round. 2 -3 pegs in that atmosphere is an addition to it

well deluxe room are awsome really but once in a blue moon i stayed in evershine sweet and jr sweet ,well one has to stay and enjoy,

deluxe room are my favourite and that also just above receiption ,well we have already made booking for 31st december also haha,if you say we are crazy we are abt mahableshwar

Once again hats off to this Resort which is as beautiful as Mahabaleshwar. If I get an opportunity I would love to visit Key every week as its just 2 hrs from pune

See you on 16th June as we are coming to Key to celebrate , completion of one year term staying in Key Resort. We just need an excuse to come to Mahabaleshwar. hahha
we have stayed for more then may be 15 times in one year which is almost 1 month in year if you stay for 2 nights per visit

well 10/10 for whole team

Dear Guest,

You have summed it all in one sentence. Our gratitude for this appreciation. Yes we maintain the highest level of hygiene and upkeep and five star standards and service which is unobtrusive yet friendly. Glad that you like the swimming pool, gaming zone, food at coffee shop etc.
Try our resort during monsoons. The advantage we have that we have all the facilities under one roof and since we situated on an elevation you can literally feel the mist and fog at your feet.

Warm regards

Good ambience. Courteous staff. Good food. Nice location. Very near / walkable distacne to market; but not crowdy. We visited in February, cold at Mahabaleshwar then. It would had been more enjoyable if swimming pool was heated. Only one minor thing; there was mild tinge of smell of cigarette smoke on arrival; informed housekeeping, who attended after sometime, sprayed the room with air freshner; but smell didnot go; and it smelled like that everytime we entered the room, for next two days. Otherwise it is a very good hotel; will definitely recommend to friends and also shall stay there during further trips to Mahabaleshwar.

Dear Guest,

Thanks for your appreciation on food and friendly staff. We give lot emphasis to score on courtesy while training our staff and I am glad you have appreciated this. We are located less than 1 km from the market and one could take a stroll also. Apologies for the cigarette smell in the room. Our housekeeping team has been briefed to completely sanitize the rooms and ensure this is smell free. We are sensitive to the concerns for non-smokers- being an eco-friendly hotel.

Look forward to see you gain during monsoons where the heaven comes down to Mahabaleshwar.

Warm regards

We stayed in this resort in February with our 4 years old grandson. it was a very pleasant experience . from the minute you enter in the reception to the room service boys, entire staff is very polite and genuinely helpful.Good training. The restaurant staff was specially good and made sure that our grandson had his preference dishes available at odd hours as well. the pool, kids playground area, lobby , all are very comfortable. the whole thing is done very aesthetically and ambiance is superb.
a must for all ages.try out at least once to experience it first hand. food is good.

Room Tip: Rooms facing pool are have good scene.
