Booked this place after seeing such wonderful reviews but it's a big let down . This was the first time for us to book a private villa and it has left a bad taste never against n for that price I would rather book a hotel .
Far of from the main Lonavla centre you get nothing near it , its 2.74km far from Kumar resort
The bungalow doesn't look like the photos in fact the lawn n pool are very small
The pool is so small that if you try to swim just one stroke n you reach the other end I fail to understand how 35 ppl accommodated in that pool as said in previous review ..
The whole bungalow has walls which look like they have severe leaking problem ... They tried to brush it saying the reason for such walls were fog but mind u I m a regular at Lonavala and I have never found any hotels with such walls ..
They have cut off electricity for all the point in the house just the fans and they hv put a CFL bulbs in every room for us , after charging such high amount u didn't even trust ppl to use your light that was downright insulting
Mr Rizwan and his wife are very polite people but this is not a sign of polite and humble nature ,if your so scared that ppl will spoil your lights rather don't rent it out .
Just wondering what if the hotel industry starts doing all this ..lights only for show the guest can't use it ????
The food no doubt they r tasty and fabulous but my group has a very small appetite even after paying 8000 for 8 ppl I didn't find it worth the money
but then again Lonavala has always been expensive on food part ...
The worst was the pool . My daughters were using the pool from morning and when we joined them latter and realised that there was a very high content of chlorine did the cleaner inform us that he had added chlorine in the morning and we shouldn't use it ...how could he add such high amount when he knew we were stil aboard and he didn't even have the decency to inform when my kids went in , only when we entered he feared he wud complain so he tried to warn us .. My daughter was ill for 2 days after that incident I don't understand how come ppl praise the hospitality so much
If you ask me never again . If this is what private villas are I m better off with hotels ...
Villa has 4 bedrooms, a large drawing & dining hall with excellent sitting & sleeping arrangements. 3 bedrooms with attached washrooms are on 1st floor, Villa has fully operational kitchen, Flat TV, Refrigerator etc etc.
Highlight of this Villa is its Spacious Lovely Green garden, excellent landscape, cute privte pool . Owner Rizwan Patka's eye for detail n fabulous customer centric approach makes it more pleasing .The place was excellent, beautiful views, , kind staff, very helpful, supportive, and 24 hours service. Food was really great, a large spread, Rooms were extremely clean and luxurious. What puts it apart is its hospitality, great staff and everyone treats you like a King. , Thank you for giving us an opportunity for staying with you guys !! Sudhir Kunder
