"Conversation was not that much"

5.5/7
Posted 2 days ago

The activity was available at the hotel. I had visited this hotel for personal trip. I don't have any suggestion for this hotel. The parking facility was very good. Wi-Fi connection was provided in the room. This hotel was value for money.

"Average stay not worth of hype!"

3.4/7
Posted 4 days ago

I stayed here for 2 days in October 2015 for team get together, we booked these resort for a group under corporate package. Check in and check out took too long, room was not in good condition and few of my colleagues requested a room change due to maintenance issues, few got change of rooms few of them didn't. Rooms were not peaceful either. Late....

"A good place for a couple stay"

5.0/7
Posted 4 days ago

Room ambience and colour was very okay... But the bed was superb, the entrance of the lobby was nice and amazing. Travelling by your car the could be a task since to road uphill was very bad I guess they should do something about it. Breakfast had a huge variety. Advantage was temperature controlled pool.

"Really huge property "

5.8/7
Posted 13 days ago

I stayed in Deluxe Room during weekend and it was my first stay at Fariyas. The location of the hotel is good and the property is really huge. The water park is decent though we didn't use it as it was raining. The room was spacious and quite comfortable. The only thing we didn't quite like was its buffet dinner and breakfast. At a price of 1000....

Great hospitality at Fariyas.. Would've loved to extend our stay but couldn't due to unavailability.. View from the room was splendid and the weather just perfect.. All in all, a great stay..

"Mixed Reviews - Excellent location, lower than expected customer service"

6.3/7
Posted 2 months ago

Check-in: It took 1. 5 hours to complete check in formalities. There was a very long queue due to two reasons (my observation) - 1. Weekend, 2. Just two computer systems to check in / check out so many people. Check Out: 1 hour to get our baggage from the room to the reception !! Tested our patience! Hotel Ambience: If you have read reviews that say that it is a 5-star resort, then please remove the "5-star" expectation before planning to go there. Hotel reception area does not have AC, so many support staff but clueless when asked about water park, swimming pool timings, etc. Rooms were very Nice, clean and meets the "5-star" ambience expectation. Food: Buffet lunch/dinner is overpriced and has limited options - again, as compared to other 5-star places. The wait time to get food (at the restaurant as well as in room) once ordered is too upsetting. We ordered for in room dining for our dinner and they took 1 hour & 3 follow up calls to get the food and another hour plus three follow up calls to come and clean the table. Quality of food is very good. Buffet breakfast was too good. Water park: Very Good. Cleanliness has been taken care of quite well. Should add more activities. Overall: If you are looking for a relaxed weekend, good food and not much customer service expectation from the resort, then go for it.

"Good rooms and plenty of recreational activities"

6.7/7
Posted 8 months ago

Recently, I went with my family for weekend stay at Fariyas Resort looking to relax and enjoy and I must say that this is one of very few places where one can find everything good. Food, games, rooms, service, garden, pool, etc. The rooms are well-equipped with TV, stb, fridge, bath tub and balcony offering a lovely view of garden. There are 2 swimming pools, one outdoor with water rides for children and family to enjoy and another indoor surrounding which there are games like table tennis, carrom and soccer table. Breakfast, lunch and dinner at the 'Coffee Shop' were all superb especially the 'lasagna' and desserts like 'gulab jamun'. The resort has a really big garden where one can play cricket, badminton or just stroll around enjoying the view and taking pictures. One thing I really liked was the basketball court near the garden. Fariyas has got state of the art conference rooms and very helpful staff. The resort is 5 mins from the main market where one can feast on vada pavs, bhajiyas and most famous Lonavla ki chikki. All in all, I would recommend anyone to stay at Fariyas as it's a perfect place to relax and have fun.

"Not worth the price..."

3.6/7
Posted 9 months ago

I and my wife were planning a short break in Lonavala for 1 night, 2 days and hence decided to give Fariyas a try. We had heard a lot about the property and hence, in spite of the premium cost, decided to go ahead with the same. However, the decision seemed incorrect right from the word go. After we had booked the place, we called up the hotel to ask a couple of things like transfers, booking confirmation, etc. For a resort that calls itself a 5 star property, the staff was mediocre at best - they simply didn't know how to speak on the phone and most of the things they said were either incorrect or incomplete. The 2nd disappointment was the car that they sent for the pick-up (they charge an additional amount for this) from Lonavala station - have never seen a 5 star resort use anything but a sedan class vehicle - Fariyas sent us a mid-end SUV. But that was the least of the issues. When we finally reached the hotel, they forgot our welcome drinks (we never got it actually). The check-in was quick though and the staff at the reception had our details at the ready. The staff of the hotel seems to be the only saving grace for the property. We were given a room on the 2nd floor and this turned out to be another disappointment. There was a distinct damp smell prevalent in the room at all times. In fact, the room was so badly maintained that there was mould (fungus) of some kind growing on the ceiling of the balcony (See photo attached). The toiletries and other essentials were as expected - thank God for that. Next demerit was the food. We had lunch at the in-house buffet and were impressed neither by the quality (taste, texture, etc. ) nor the quantity (spread). There was barely 1 main course in the non-veg section and another item was super spicy. The dessert section, though well-stocked, left a lot to be desired in terms of taste and quality. There was an over-bearing aroma of eggs in a couple of items. Last but not the least, was the super hot and extremely uncomfortable climate that was maintained in common indoor areas like the coffee shop (where the buffet is served) and the main reception area. I was literally sweating while eating - have never seen a "5 star" resort use coolers to maintain the climate. Needless to say, they were grossly inadequate. In fact, besides us a couple of other guests also complained about the same. I almost forgot to mention that the resort does not provide free WiFi. I mean for the price they charge, this is the least that they can do. WiFi is almost like an essential necessity nowadays. To conclude, I would say that if in Lonavala, please look at all other options before deciding on this place. The view is also not great.
