A little on the outskirts of Mahabaleswar town but an ideal place to spend a quite weekend in the hills. The property is designed for family travel, with most rooms having an extra mezzanine floor for kids etc. The resort has a fully functional pool, sauna and spa within the premises. Food could be better, but a very nice stay...

visited from 08may2017 to 10may2017, 4 adults and 1 child. The property is around 2 kms away from the panchgani-mahabaleshwar main road. This 2 km approach goes to kates point which is around 1.2 kms from the hotel. The road to the hotel is narrow so you need to drive carefully and driving in the dark is not recommended. The...

Our family stayed at the resort and we liked the fantastic views in the resort. The maintenance of the place is very good. The rooms were very clean and also all the walk areas too. A small gesture but thoughtfully done is our car was cleaned up from outside even when we had not mentioned it. Thanks to the team...

Very nice location. Rooms were adequately sized for a family of 4. 2 adults and 2 children. Staff was most courteous and went out of the way to address some of our so odd hours meals request. While we could see that it was too stressful for them however they ensured that we get what we wanted. Thanks a lot....
