Ranked 2 of 46 hotels in Chiplun
In Maharashtra, I would rate this resort the best. The staff was too good. The resort is very good with lot of flowers, fruits, etc. Nice place to stay for 2 days.
If a long drive amidst cloud filled valleys and waterfalls is your way of spending the weekend then take the drive from Pune to Chiplun via Mahabaleshwar. The drive from Mahabaleshwar to Chiplun is a must for nature lovers. Chiplun is a small industrial city on the Mumbai-Goa highway NH-17. For those who are more interested in the drive then the stay, Pagoda Retreat offers a good economical option. The resort has a swimming pool and decent rooms. We booked a suite for the three of us. The service is exceptionally good. The bathrooms were clean and room service prompt. The Table Tennis was not open and surprisingly the reason given was \'due to rains\'. Pool table is also mentioned but they have removed it due to high taxes. Just the location is a let down as it is situated bang on the highway. Beach lovers can relax at Guhagar beach which is 40 Kms from Chiplun. The road to Guhagar is one of the best as well as the view. The view of River Vishisti from the valley is breathtaking.
I was on a leisure trip to Chiplun. On the way at 7 pm spotted a nice resort namely Pagoda Resorts. Stopped there to inquire but found it very nice place to spend a night. We stayed there in executive suite which was very good. During dinner at the restaurant, the service was excellent and staff was very well-behaved and they knew the needs of the guests. Ambiance was excellent in the restaurant. Front desk staff was excellent and very friendly like they knew us from long time. I was pleased with their behaviour. Pool side is nice for walk. Next day we went to Parshuram ji temple on the way to Guhagar beach. The temple is about 5 km from resort. You will see a big gate on left side of Goa high towards Chiplun. The same road leads to the ancient temple of Parshuram ji which is said to be nearly 800 years old. It is worth visiting in relation to religion and of historical importance. From there we went to Guhagar beach which is 40 km from temple. We reached there in about one hour. Beach has very clear water of sea and was clean. Due to exams going on, there were no tourists at the place other than us. Overall, it is an excellent beach to visit. If you are on to Mumbai-Goa road via Chiplun then it is an excellent place to relax. Lote is the place where you will find Pagoda Resorts.
It was an excellent hotel, at the least expected place. Extremely friendly staff. Clean Rooms, sparkling clean toilets. If you are trying to contact the hotel, please note that the phone no provided on the website i.e the STY code no of chiplun is wrong. Please check the code and then dial the no. to get through. You must visit this hotel!
I made a relaxing trip to Ratnagiri with my family on New Year's Eve 2013. Overall experience about this hotel is good and it is on the highway. The interior and exterior of the hotel is not up to the mark, not properly maintained may be due to few customers. From what they charge the hotel is not well maintained. Faced no problem at check in and check out. Staff behaviour and management is okay. The waiters take a lot of time say plus or minus 5 minutes when any order is placed may be that they are engaged in the restaurant. It is not properly maintained. Compared to the charges the rooms were not that good. The washroom was not neat and clean and towels provided were not good may be due to fewer customers. TV and AC were in working condition. Since the hotel was on the highway only the road could be seen. Variety of food items were available which I took in the hotel itself i.e. table service. Surroundings and restaurant were well maintained. Activities were available, but they were not properly maintained and I did not use them. I went on my own for a sightseeing trip. There was no value for money in this hotel. I am basically from Mumbai and my mother tongue is Marathi. Due to the urgency I feel going for some official work, then I would prefer to stay in MIDC which is the best place to stay. My suggestion to the Hotel Management of Ratnagiri is that if they want good customers who come repeatedly then they should maintain it properly.
