“Nice service apartment hotel on the lake front”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 December 2011

Nice hotel in the beautiful area of Dasve village in Lavasa. All happening places are around this property including boulevard, promenade adjoining lake and all major restaurants in the area are just below this hotel. The property is like service apartments as it has kitche and gadgets ,utensils . Rooms are well decorated with nice wall paintings but very basic, nothing special. The biggest plus is its right in front of the happening place in Lavasa.Its quite an experience to take a walk across the promenade on a chilly evening and have your food outside the restaurant on the promenade area. The restautrants around offer a very wide choice of cuisines.

Room Tip: Look for lake facing rooms which are mostly 1 and 2 bedrooms as studio rooms are all at the backside...

Its a lovely place to hang out and maintained well. Once in a while the uncivilised biker crowd does walk in and litter, which is very shameful, but the management has succeeded in keeping the sanctity and cleanliness nonetheless.

Also a great place with lots of eateries and sit-outs. Great view of the waterfront - lovely breeze - and picturesque sunsets...

Great place to relax and spend the day! Food at most eateries is reasonably priced though the portion size and preparation does need some improvisation.

The Waterfront provides a lovely experience and gives you a feeling of being in a completely different place. The atmosphere at the waterfront is serene and beautiful. Having said all this, we found the rooms very small & claustrophobic for the amount we had paid for them. Also food was on the expensive side. But a good place for a weekend getaway if you do not mind a bit expense.

We visited in Monsoon in lavasa and stayed in this and fortune proerty. though this property does not gives you the feeling like another 4 or 5 star hotels as they have concepts of apatment but service quality, staff courtesy and customer understanding are world class.
they have 5 to 6 restaurant option to chose from. they provide you x-box & bicycle.
Only thing they don't have their own swimming pool & gym but they have Tie-up with Dasve Club which is around 1.5Km from property.

Rooms are spacious, couple of good surprises like in eve special choc were kept in our room.
Next day morning I found my car cleaned and few more which does not have much monetary value but will delight you.
Property is located right at the lake

Room Tip: Choose for Lake facing apartments. if you have big family can opt for 2BHK apartment
