This Hotel Makes Our Trip Adventurous this Hotel is Located Between Forest. This Hotel Has Many Cottages inside the Hotel. Road Connecting This Hotel is Nice Which is Long drive from Mumbai via the excellent express highway Rooms Inside This Hotel is Spacious and Clean . Staff is Professional and Well mannered.
Overall experience was good. Stay was comfortable. It was a visit with the family. It was conveniently located. Staff members were co operative. Appearance from inside and outside was quite good. They did not book room. Food was taken in the hotel. Food was okay. There was no delay in billing. Hotel did not provide pick and drop facility. Finally destination was value for money for one day.
Long drive from Mumbai via the excellent express highway, taking a right from the Kamshet Dam after exiting from the lonavala exit, leads you to a narrow road. Almost cutting you off from the rest of the world. One hour drive from there over looking some beautiful mountain views and the backwaters of the Pawna Dam, small villages and farms and the scenic country side brings u at the gates of Girivan. Its a straight road after to u take turn from Kamshet, keep on looking signs of Girivan. Maval Srushti is a fantastic resort sprawling across 20 - 22 acres of mountainous terrain. The thick green foliage, blooming flowers (roses / lotus and many other) gives a pleasant site to your eyes.
The overall expericence of this place is just OK. The road to reach Maval Srushti is not all that good. The best time to visit this place might be monsoon, but then travelling to this place during monsoon might not be a very good experience.
Their website said they have cottages. They have nothing of that sort (atleast as of Oct 2006 when we went there). Accomodation consisted of little rooms that are in poor condition. We had paid for extra beds (for kids), but they weren’t already in place. Upon our arrival, they spoke to us as if they didn’t know about the request. Premises were badly maintained. The construction of various things in the premises was very low-budget’ish and of poor quality (eg. parapet walls, pathways, unpaven driveways, etc). A stray dog roamed about the eating area. We saw 2 dead frogs in the swimming pool. I could go on. The web site is made impressively, but the place sucks. Don’t get misled by the web site. There was not even a check-in counter. Very unprofessional look and feel and service. They run the eating area like their personal kitchen. The location (and scenery on the way to it) is very nice, they could have made this a fantastic hill resort. Instead they have totally screwed it up. Will never go there again. I don’t recommend this place to anyone.
If I had to mention our (My wife & Me) experience at Maval Srushti in just one word - Excellent. It is truly a 20 acre mountain paradise (as advertised by the resort owners). If you are a nature lover & like to be with nature this should be your ideal weekend gateway just one hr. from Pune & around 3 hrs. from Mumbai. Situated at height of 2800 Ft. (around 400 ft. more than Lonavala) the best time to visit this resort is during monssons as the pvt. waterfall (the best part of the resort) can be enjoyed during this season only. You can reach the waterfall & explore this big property with well marked treks which is another plus point of this resort. We also found thousands of plants, flowers & trees in the resort, in fact not a single area has been left without any plantation. The resort is a photographers delight as we found out (Photograhy being our new found passion) & spend most of our time clicking pictures, getting wet in the waterfall & enjoying three hearty meals in a day of Maharashtiran Veg. Cuisine. The resort also has two swimming pools one at the upper level & the other one at lower levels. It also has play areas for children & other activities include table tennis. The rooms do not have T.V. which is a plus point as you tend to spend more time with nature instead of exploring the idiot box. To sum up our experience at Maval Srushti, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the company of nature & minus T.V., Mobile (No mobile network), Newspapers, No vehicular traffic (Excpet for those visiting the resort) etc.,
If experience about Nature & Surroundings is left behind, rest of the things including Resort Management, Room Service, Food, Cleanliness was one of the worst things i ever seen in Nature Trail.
Maval Srushti is very nice place for people who love to be in splendour of nature. The flowers, plants, butterflies and mountains will live you with a feeling of bliss! Very good for health too as the environment is absolutely unpolluted. Those interested in photography will never know how time flies by!
The rooms were awfully unhygenic. The tarrif too was not as advertised. One couldnt get closer to nature here as the rooms had roaches and lizards. I had to spend a sleepless night after a rat bit my fingers while I was asleep.
I came across Maval Srusti through Indian Resorts Survey, which led me to the website. I fell in love with it - the website was so well designed complete with a location map though the tariff was not available but u cannot expect everything right? As 15th August was booked, my husband and me opted for the next weekend - Saturday being a holiday on account of Parsi New Year. It\'s a hour ride from, Kothrud Pune and the road are best suited for a bike ride with negligible pothholes and minimum traffic. Once there, we were escorted to our room facing the valley. The resort is on top of a hill and the view of the valley is awesome, surrounded by thick forest. This resort is a project by the Joshi\'s - contributing their bit to conserving the nature as there are several variety of plants planted all over; no campfire allowed as it requires cutting of trees and closer home - no smoking or drinking or television or tape recorder. And that is precisely what gives you time and peace to enjoy a game of table tennis, carrom and a relaxed swim. Food is Maharastrian complete with a sweet dish and I should say dinner is better than lunch. Afternoon snack and tea are welcomed, specially if you are visiting on a cloudy day. The room service is plesant, already with a smile on their faces. The highlight other than the games is the beautiful waterfall , which comes after over a 100 steps is a trek with beautiful plants and flowers along the way. We even caught an ant-hill. Photographers, nature lovers, garderners or just about anyone - one place beautiful to occupy anybody - and don\'t forget to stand a while and smell the nature all over you.
