Top Reviews of Leisure Vacations Terra Camp.
If you love peace and if you are a nature lover then this is a perfect place for you. The hotel is far from the main city, the roads are not well maintained and you would feel that you are lost. But the scenic beauty would keep you mesmerized. The hotel is like the last stop on that road. The hotel is neat and clean. The food is good, not like the spicy Punjabi ones but tasty. There is a nice garden where you can sit and enjoy the mountains. For me that's the best place in the resort. You can go there in the night and enjoy the clear sky. I went there in December so it was cold and didn't feel the need of AC. In summers it would be difficult to stay due to heat. Just make sure you download the location of the hotel on Google maps as you might get lost since there are less sign boards. The internet hardly works, so be prepared to live without connectivity. Overall, it's a nice and peaceful place.
The hotel was conveniently location I did not find any difficulty to find it. The service of the staff was nice and friendly, helpful and hygienic. The staff were quick attentive and they serve in time. The surrounding of the hotel also was very good. The room was good, spacious and hygienic. All the amenities were working well and the interior was well maintained. There was a scenic view from the room. The food was not good in taste and doesn't suit to me. I did not experience any sightseeing facilities by them.
We went for a family weekend getaway and it was a fabulous stay - wish we could have stayed there longer. The room (modelled as a tent) was fabulous with zips for getting in and out - that was quite unique. It was better than the pictures. Excellent bunk beds to boot. Just wish there was some room-heating facilities like an electric blanket or something. The veranda outside with couple of chairs and a table to sit and enjoy your tea/meal was cool too. Complimentary breakfast in the morning was delicious more so because their restaurant overlooks the beautiful valley. They have many recreational activities too. Staffs were extremely courteous starting from the reception to the room boys to the kitchen. We just wished that the road (especially the last 5 kms or so) was better. That part of the trip just about killed the entire fun. The last stretch of the road was so bad that our cab-driver charged us 1000 bucks extra. Although we just loved the experience (yes even after that extra 1000 bucks payment) but we wouldn't stay at this hotel again unless the approach road is fixed.
I planned my honeymoon in panchgani & Terra Camp was a small part of it. I went to panchgani & stayed in a hotel for few days & then moved to Terra camp. I wanted my honeymoon not to be just boring site-seeing, hence I chose it. Terra camp is bit outside of panchgani. I took an early morning cab from Ganeshpeth to Terra Camp. About 5-10 min road drive is bit bumpy (as the road construction is in progress). In actual the road were not that bad, provided you have seen the roads around Pune/Mumbai suburbs. The scenic view from the hill & the local villages on the way, were actually quite refreshing. It's about 14 km journey around 40-45 minutes & I adored it thoroughly watching cows, strawberry farms, temples, small village homes etc. I reached Terra camp & was pleasantly surprised by the location well design & well-equipped. The camps are well-furnished & have everything that is offer in a rich hotel room (except tlevision). When enquired about television I was informed that the concept of the camp is to spend time with your friends, loved-ones & not to waste time on television (which we can do anytime in our routine life). I did couple of adventure activities, trekking, archery etc. & enjoyed every bit of it. The staff is well-mannered & very friendly. The food service is something which deserves a special mention. Every support staff member were on their toes to help & care for us - we were overwhelmed. I will surely plan to go back again to Terra Camp!
This place is a very good option if you want to have an adventurous weekend getaway from the city life. The tents were spacious and comfortable. A double bed with couple of dressing tables and an additional bunk bed thrown in. The attached toilet section has separate dressing area, a toilet area and also a separate bath area. The road from Panchgani to the Camp offers some nice views and also adds to the whole driving away from civilization feel. The hotel staff are very nice and go that extra bit to provide you with all that you need. Breakfast buffet was nice.
