I took my students out for picnic and I am amazed at the beauty /monsoon time. It's beautiful not expensive, staff were courteous. Food was very good and had non veg, veg and Jain. The Air-Conditioning works even under power cuts and very scenic. Very quiet, it's away from traffic, noise and clean air. If you want peace and tranquility just go and stay there. I heard there is a labour problem so, I had to shift to others resorts but nothing compared to Palas Resort. If it starts again I will be there.
It's one of my most loved spot. The first occasion when I ran there with office buddies for a meeting and preferred the spot to such an extent. Place full of lavish green, clean rooms and bed sheets, bathroom stunning, wicker container ball court to do all pole with companions, enormous meeting room where our DJ gathering was masterminded by our manager after the meeting, clean swimming pool, jacuzzi and steam room at the swimpool zone, enjoyable to be with your partner, patio nurseries have swings and huge enough area to disclose and stroll in your need to. Nourishment is awesome, great mixture in breakfast, lunch and supper time assortments of veg and non veg three sorts every in addition to the deserts (my top pick). Second time it arranged an astonishment party for my companions here which was a super hit and third tyme we racket genuine arrangement for here. Be that as it may, other all arrangements slumped henceforth we came here cause it's an awesome place anyway. No problem going by it once more. My friends likewise preferred it and took their friends as well. Magnificent.
First of all I wish to point out that the resort is now known as Palas Resort and it is near Nagothane at a distance of 55 km from Panvel, 18 km from Vadkhal Naka on NH 17 and about 50 km from Alibag. A huge resort with 40 AC Rooms and which is very well maintained and has lots of greenery. A really relaxing place and that too just a 2.5 hour drive from Mumbai.
Best Experience: Overall the place was great. The rooms were neat and clean. The gardens and open spaces were well kept and the swimming pool was clean.
The resort is easily reachable. The overall appearance is good but only till you actually check-in. The Rooms are below average. There is a CRT inside rooms, which does not work. As far as activities are concerned, there is only a swimming pool that you can enjoy. Jacuzzi, steam etc. are shady, you won't even feel like entering it. Room service is also poor. The staff at restaurent is very friendly though. They will allow you to enter the kitchen if you want your special customised tea.
We were like gate crashers as our booking with the next door resort was cancelled by them saying that we never did book any rooms. But Palas resort co-operated to our situation and not only that but accomodated us (12 people) and also managed to give us a discount. Leisure activities like a dip in the pool, rifle shooting, archery are just a few to mention. A great experience overall.
