The resort is away from the main Lonavala city and situated near Rajamachi Point. There is ample greenery around it, yet it is easily accessible as it is situated on the main road They have a nice pool near their restaurant. They have open space for having some activities if you are travelling in a big group Their restaurant is decent but their breakfast buffet is disappointing The rooms are spacious and clean but the toiletries are of very poor quality to better carry your own.
I was here as part of my team retreat and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The hotel is located close to the Mumbai expressway and we were at the hotel in less than 10 minutes after the toll. The resort is not large, but there are three major plus points: The rooms are cosy, not luxurious but great value for money; the food is delicious and the best bit is the pool - inviting and great place to come to! My team and I enjoyed the retreat very much and it was lovely to get away in the summer heat. Highly recommended.
We checked in during the weekend of Independence Day. From Kandala Station we took an auto which took Rs. 100 (which was higher than original, I guess the autowala just made a fool out of us as he understood we are outsiders) to reach the resort. The resort's from view was great. We were given a garden view room(as per booking). The room was splendid. I was a bit more concerned about the room than my other trips as my idea of this trip was to just relax in the middle of cloudy weather. The room was spacious, well-furnished, nicely decorated and filled with all the amenities a person needs during a trip Coming to the service - Room service was good, but the restaurant service was really below expectation. The guys were busy serving the people who checked in on AP basis and others like us had to wait for a long time for them to take our a-la-crate orders. And the food choice and quality was also very much average My advice to travelers travelling to this part of India is, set your food expectation very low because apart from great deal of chikkis this place has nothing else to offer. But be prepared to get amused by the serene beauty of the place I would suggest the hotel to make their kitchen much better. May be arrange for different types of cuisines. Because for me an idea of relaxing trip is Beautiful Weather, and serene beauty clubbed with great stay, good food and definitely awesome service by hotel as well as restaurant staff.
Hotel was good. I traveled there by car. Parking and lift facility was available. Staff behavior was professional. Services were fast and on time. Appearance of the hotel was fabulous. Rooms were neat and clean. TV, AC, geyser and other basic amenities were available. Food was tasty. Veg and non-veg all varieties were available. Any view was not available from the room. I faced no problem during check-in and check-out process. Swimming pool and other activities were available. I went there with my family in July month 2014. Hotel was value for money. It is a recommendable hotel for travelers.
The BAD part--. Rooms received during the stay were on ground floor, 103 and 104 which was near a horse stable and the whole gangway smelled of horse **** and poop . WiFi services are okay, there are like 4-5 options all word with the same so speed . Food in the buffet or the ala-carte are really not worth the price at all, bad, overpriced food, and being a bong I love my dessert and 120 bucks for 2 pieces of rossogulla which does not even come close to the real thing is really sad . Breakfast options are very few and again bad food :(. Rooms have A/C but my room AC remote did not have batteries and the battery lid was taped . The TV in my room had no subscription so therefore no channels . What the. Gangway was a tad bit poorly lit, some of the lights did not work . Pool time is from 9am to 6pm . Eee . And the reason mentioned is that they have to switch on the pool lights and because of this the electricity sometimes is felt in the water, that is kind of crazy . And not safe. The GOOD part--. For the food RamKrishna hotel is nearby in Lonavala which has all sorts of Indian cuisines and has really awesome food . LIKE AWESOME . And easy on the wallet. The staff is helpful in a way, but still kind of cribs to get drinking water to the room .
I am very happy to visit at Zarah Resort at Lonavala. This is really very good plac and Rooms provided by Manager were good and neat and clean. We enjoy a lot. We also visit to Khandala and other places. It is hilly area and atmosphere is very pleasant and cool . . The services provided by Room boy and Manager were very good. The staff was good and there was not any problem at all I would like to advice to the travelers that the restaurant is just near the lobby of Manager. Veg and Non veg food is available at all times or by giving order The time is important to visit restaurant for refreshment, lunch and diner. So be prepared and visit once at Zarah Resort at Lonavala. Cost of Rooms are reasonable and affordable for middle class people
