Lonavala MTDC Review

Location : Karla, Lonvala.. Nearly 3 kms from the centre of Lonavala..
If travelling via the express highway, its better to get out of the 2nd exit to lonavala.  If you take the first exist, there is a possibility of getting stuck in the traffic heading towards amby valley.

Ample parking space for Cars/Bikes.

The resort also has facitilites for boating as it has a small river flowing right behind the resort..
This location is also a paradise for birds.. especially KFs.. I saw Pied, Common and White breasted KF.
Other birds sighted : Minivet, Tits, Egrets, Cormorants.

Tarrifs : Change according to season. I paid 1300/- for a Garden AC cottage (double bed) in July'11.
There are a lot of cottages/suites over the vast spread of the resort.
But if visiting in monsoon season, its better to pre-book online.

Room service : non-existent. But we had a problem in the geyser at 9.30 in the night and it was fixed at that time.

Restaurant : This is the pathetic part of the resort. Though the food is really good, the service at the restaurant is really pathetic. On any day, the food wont arrive before 30-45mins of placing the order.

attaching some images for reference :)
