Manas Resort Reviews
I visited manas right after my marriage for a stay for two days. The weather was extremely awesome and the valley view on top of it was the killer. The breakfast there is not that great but for the other meals it's Awesome!
Frankly speaking I had expected a lot from manas resort considering the name it has. But to my displeasure... The food was really pathetic and not only me... All the 12 members of our group cribbed a lot about food... It was the worst experience as far as food was concerned considering we all had been to places which were less costly than manas.......Read More
It was decent stay if you want to stay for a day. Food was good too. Head Chef was very accommodative and flexible, was continuously asking for feedback and was very kind. One of the head staff executive member was drunk and loud whom with other people, we reported the incident during checkout. Hoping they will make sure of theIR standards. Overal....Read More
I had taken the standard room valleyside facing and this was the cheapest room available but still I paid 9K + and this room was in an apartment at the end of the property you can say out of the resort the food was OK not to good not to bad. I felt that this place is not a good value for money.
We visited in the month of July-17 and it was ultimate whether during that time. It was exceptional atmosphere And the property is well located in Igatpuri. Some +Ve's about the Hotel are: 1. Staff - They are very understanding and cooperative they sometimes go out of the way and also help you. 2. Location - Some Rooms in the Hotel are....Read More
Location wise its a secluded place as its Igatpuri. But that's the upside to it as it is surrounded by green hills and valleys. The pool is splendid and so is the staff. Go during Monsoons or Winter. Family environment.
I stayed at Manas Resort, Igatpuri for 1 night on 12th May 2016. There was high expectations as this is good named resort of Igatpuri. However, I was disappointed on that. Resort is quite old, all interiors and other things looks old. It is very well maintained. Stayed at Royal Villa Room which was having Living Room at upstairs & Bed Room and wash....Read More
Rooms and food was OK but worth staying in rainy season as full area gets very foggy. Swimming pool was well maintained. Manas resort location is good as it is highway touch and nearby railway station. Worth for staying only 1 or 2 days. Need to add some more indoor activities in hotel.
I had booked a room for two nights for Rs 21000. As I had paid such an amount was expecting something grand. But when I saw the rooms and facilities I was immensely disappointed. I managed to stay for one day and cancelled the booking for the day two.
Very expensive resort and you will definitely get better deals at the same cost. Rooms are good but the service at Manas lacks. Restaurant food is OK and you don't have any other option but to eat here. The pool is good and clean. Good time to stay in the rains.
Top Reviews of Manas Resort
Igatpuri was wet, wet all the way. It did not stop raining it all, and the weather was chilly. We were, therefore, cooped indoors almost all the time. We tried to venture out when it cleared, but the fog soon drove us back. Not that Igatpuri has much to offer anyway. Manas Resort is tucked away three kilometres from the main town, and there is nothing around to visit. Unless you count the local Ghatandevi Mandir as a charming visit spot. If the weather had permitted, we could have visited the Vipassana Centre. The next nearest visit spot is Bhandardara, 40 km away. Not advisable, unless you have driven there (We went by train). The Manas Resort has little to offer by diversion. There is a games room with a TT table and come carrom boards, but the room is musty and had developed leaks. There is a mini swimming pool, but as I said, we did not wish to turn into icicles. The one area I think they can shore up enternatinment is in the TV/movies section, especially for wet spells. They have excellent hardware — Flat Wall TVs — in the rooms, but the software is quite inadequate. The cable provides few channels and unfortunately, the channel we wanted to watch (HBO), as it was showing good movies that day, was unavailable. I don\'t think it should be difficult for them to hook up an inhouse movie channel. Having said this, our stay was quite pleasant. The cottages are spacious and well maintained, the food is alright (especially their melting butter cookies and omelettes), and the service deserves special mention. The staff is extremely courteous and helpful. Manas split into two resorts, Manas Resorts and Manas Lifestyle Resorts, last year. The elder brother Sanjeev Karambelkar got to keep the more spacious Manas Lifestyle, which has a spa and a massage centre and many more amenities, I am told. The younger brother Nitin Karambelkar got the tinier Manas Resorts, but is keen to add a few rooms. Nitin Karambelkar is interested in art, and plans to display paintings in the complex. Right now, the only diversion for the guests at Manas Resort is a shop that sells stylised wooden and ceramic knick-knacks. The products are brandnamed Thyme and have a quaint, antique appeal. Even the elegant room furniture bear the same brandname, and each displays a price tag: you can buy replicas of any of them. Travelling from Mumbai was jinxed, our train was late and the roads were full of potholes, but the return train journey to Mumbai (Godavari Express) was pleasant. Overall, Manas gave me the impression that it catered more to corporate groups than individuals. Nitin Karambelkar appeared to oversee things just a day before a large party was due to arrive; thankfully we had the place to ourselves during our stay. We are not complaning.
stayed in Manas resort for 2 days with family. Stayed in valley view cottages that have the best amenities and excellent view of the valley. The resort is huge, has open restaurant that served some very good punjabi dishes.
Stayed at the Manas Lifestyle - different from Manas Resort (though next to each other). Was skeptical after seeing the reports from other travellers. Pleasantly surprised at the location & the courteousness of the staff. Rooms were very clean, had a nice sit out facing the lawn. The pool was the highlight with 3 different depths-2 for children & 1 for adults. Food was a let down with the menu being repeated. Had programmes for Diwali - ghazals, DJ & firecrackers (didnot happen much due to rain). Have good place for TT, badminton,etc with a nice child play area.
Igatpuri by itself may not have any other attraction but Manas Resort can be a destination by itself. In fact, when asked where I spent my x\'mas, I don\'t say \'Igatpuri\', I just say \'Manas\'. My whole group, right upto my 2 year old granddaughter, was way too happy during the stay there and when we left, we all felt the holidays have come to an end tooooo sooooon!!!
Nice place for a weekend hangout. Easy Check-in and Check-out. Nice and clean rooms, quality food and well maintained property. The resort is on the main highway, so easy to locate. The staff were courteous and helpful. The activity area need to be upgraded.
