When it comes to location, very few resorts are able to beat and the same stands true for this resort as well. The lake by the side of resort gives country side serene look to the resort. Food - More than average. The best USP for this report is the water park which is a good source of entertainment. Rooms were not in great condition and due to heavy rains, damp was also very common in all the rooms we booked. All in all, average place.

Location of MTDC resort is the USP and this Karla resort is no exception to it. The lake view with water park inside the resort is like icing on the cake. We completely loved our stay at this place and look forward to visit it soon again. The resort need to work on the sleep quality and cleanliness.
Resort Karla is 5 km away from Lonavala when you go towards Pune. You can do the bookings online or else you can get the phone number and do a phone booking. The reception staff is very cooperative and the campus is maintained. As it is a govt undertaken, don't expect it to be of a 5 star class but whatever service and facilities are available, those are very good.
We were there to bring in the New Year 2016 & had booked a Cottage. There have been many positive improvements since our last stay, which made us happy. Most of the Cottages have been renovated, the Mattresses have been changed, the Flooring is New & Good, the Furniture has also been changed, there are Reflective Bollards lining all the inner roads, nice Reflective Sign Boards have been fixed outside each Cottage/Room to indicate their number, making them easy to find & some landscaping with new flower & other plants has been done, making the whole place look much better than earlier. The food in the restaurant has also been improved & is quite good now, particularly the Kebabs & other Tandoori Items, which are very good. The Complimentary Breakfast (which was never actually Complimentary) has now been stopped & the room rates have been reduced to reflect this, which is very good, as you can now order a la chart breakfast, asking for what you want & pay for the same accordingly. The Restaurant rates continue to be very affordable Many of the earlier downsides however still continue, with maintenance still being a major issue. The Electrical Switches in the Rooms are often loose & hanging, the Taps & Plumbing leak at some places, the Bed Sheets, Pillow Cases & Towels are shabby & a bit frayed as well, the TV Cable Wires are very untidy outside the rooms & most of the Intercoms do not work If only would ensure proper maintenance, this would probably be the Best Place to stay at in Lonavala. However, despite all these minus points, it is still a great place in the lap of nature & will be preferred by all those who like a Rustic Setting & do not mind a few inconveniences. Being, the rates are also very reasonable & it is very good value for money Room Tip: If a Couple, go for a Garden Room or a Cottage with 1 Bedroom & if 4 persons, go for a Deluxe Co.
Really good experience. Ready to fly again. Mix activities. Keep it up. You really make my tour. Except package which have complete values of holidays in city of romance, Lonavala. Please update your website so one can easily access your site.
We visited only Water Park. Its good for one day trip. Location in on Old Mumbai -Pune highway, just 3 km from highway. So easily accessible. Water park is good but few rides only. If you don't want to visit crowded water park then you can visit here. For food hotel is there but food taste is average
The trip to Karla resort was an entirely relaxing and rejuvenating experience . It's at Lonavala so the distance to travel from Mumbai is just perfect for a weekend getaway and the resort by itself is far from the main Lonavala station side so offers peace and tranquil. The rooms available are quaint little cottages and the facilities in the rooms are pretty reasonable for the price . The reception / the service and the food were okay but most of the staff is very friendly and we were always greeted with a smile. The "non-veg" food is better and for the vegetarians, the "Thali" is a good option . The Karla resort has it's own water park - which is not too much to talk of actually - since it's only a small slide pool and a wave pool; but again the price is pretty reasonable so considering that most of the other available options at Lonavala are either relatively / comparatively expensive or too crowded, this is pretty decent . The resort offers you boating facilities which unfortunately were undergoing an over-haul when we went there but then there's the Karla caves to visit nearby and the hills to trek if you fall into the trekking category" :) The climbs are not too tiresome and the monsoons are the best time to attempt to climb the hills. With breathtaking waterfalls and the greenery all around . Of course, there's also the Bushy dam and Walwan dam and other usual sites nearby and Khandala isn't too far either. So a normal rickshaw trip around these places could be planned even if you don't have a vehicle at your disposal . All in all, if you are looking for a weekend break and don't really intend to splurge, then the Karla resort is a safe and good option.
Lonavala is the preferred hill station for most Mumbaikars and hence is always overcrowded, but the resort that is approx 4 km out of the town, gives you a very refreshing holiday experience with its vast green property with gardens, INDRAYANI river- with boating, and an attached water park. There are good options for staying with non AC and AC rooms and cottages. We stayed at one of the AC garden cottages that had a sit out balcony with open space on all sides with lots of greenery. Inside was a quite large room with attached Bath, a TV, and a Split AC. This cottage was really meant for a couple with very good privacy. Lot of space between cottages for car parking too. A leisurely walk around the greens gives one the true experience of a private hill station with fresh breeze, no noise pollution and open surroundings with view of hills. We walked down to the Indrayani river with a mini dam built on it to create a lake where boating was available. Just sitting on the dam steps watching the views gave us a relaxed feel. Nearby attractions include the famous Karla caves just approx. Two kms away. Other popular places include a visit to the beautiful Pawna dam and lake, the Shivkhind pass, the Lion point and the Bushy dam- (only during rainy season). The resort has its Indrayani restaurant that offers almost everything from veg and NV dishes right from breakfast to dinner and surprisingly with good taste and reasonable cost. Overall, possibly the best holiday experience of visiting a hill station.
It is one of the best budget Hotel in Lonavala, away from hustle and bustle of City, very serene, peaceful, calm location. Waterpark was special attraction, food was okay, service was not good. Resort is very big with standalone cottages, so full privacy. Room quality need to be improved. It is a good option . .
I reached this place by road. Parking facility was there. I went there by my own car. Staff in that hotel was friendly with me. They were quick to attend to all my requests. There was no problem with staff. I had my food outside the hotel. Room was neat and clean. All amenities were present in the room. Swimming pool was there but gym was not there. Badminton, carom, and other indoor games were available in this hotel. We went for sightseeing by our own vehicle. View was visible from the room. Look of the hotel was good. Pune is a good place. Location wise, it was also good. Appearance wise, it was good. Check in and check out process was good. Overall services of the hotel were also good. Room was good. Food was very bad. Money wise, it was a reasonable hotel. I can recommend this hotel to other travellers. I visited there with my family friends in April 2014.
It is good place to visit, one can experience the natures beauty, greenery. Rooms are good and atmosphere is pleasant, property consist of boating facility and children play area, but it is at distance from the main market and unpolluted place, food is good but service is very slow and no room service
