“I Need b Break : I wanna go bk here!”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

This place came as a great surprise to me and my husband who desperately wanted a relaxed weekend... With no expectations in our hearts, we went out to this property which is located at about 250 kms from Mumbai...the road to the resort after you take a right for Wai is great... the resort falls to your right and has a beautiful and welcoming entrance. Resort is huge and has great rooms. We stayed in Gulmohar and were quite happy. The rooms are kept very clean and tidy. Rooms are cozy and extremely comfortable.. Bang outside the rooms is a huge sit out place, which in the evening, under the stars will become your fav chill out place.... the staff is courteous and always ready to help... U would get veg food, but on your request, they do prepare lip smacking chicken :) .. remember to place your order well in advance.... A view of mountains, in the mid of huge farms, with a quiet road leading to farms, and spectacular location, we couldn't have asked for a weekend more relaxing than this...

This is one of the best places we have visited in recent past! A perfect weekend getaway from Mumbai. We went there just to relax and what a place it was. Surrounded by farms and mountains, this place is perfect for anyone who just wants to relax and enjoy the natural beauty. Also it is economical and close to Mahabaleshwar. Most rooms are good and it is a big property.

I stayed here for a evening. On arival at 6:30 pm we asked for tea I was told it won't be possible..surprised I said please try what can be done..in no time tea appeared ...and it was good...but in paper cups...inexplicable considering we were staying in the costliest suite they have.
Same intrigue continued at dinner to...food was cold...when asked I was told cook had left. Some how the experience is incomplete when hospitality does not match costly decor..

Anandvan Holiday Home is Located on not so busy Wai - Dhom Dam Rural Road. It is 5 Kms. From Wai, 20 Kms from Panchgani & 35 Kms from Satara. Ideal Place for those looking for nice, decent, peaceful countryside stay with not much hustle bustle.20-25 Rooms hotel spread in 2.5-3 acre of land with lots of greenery. We had stayed in Non AC Cottage. Room & bathroom where little old style though neat & clean & spacious enough. Cottage had nice backyard where you can seat under tree & read book for hours. Front yard has remote view of Mountains.Could not miss AC even in afternoons.
Food was simple, Marathi style freshly prepared meal. overall good in taste but In vegetable curry gravy was same for all meals only vegetable inside was changing.Food charges felt little higher but at such remote place you don't have much choice.Not suitable for persons who require frequent room service or choice in foods. Room service was very poor but will like to mention one staff Dharam. Like god is everywhere this Dharam was everywhere from room service to house keeping to restaurant service to behind the reception sometimes. Owner Mr. Anand was nice person to meet and suggested some good travel options around.
Our request for hot water in afternoon was point blank rejected left me with question I am staying in hotel which owner tries to sell it as high end resort or some dharam shala where such strict rules are adhered. Also felt little non transparency in billing which could have been avoided with clearly informing while dealing or checking in.
Overall I enjoyed my stay at Anandvan & will go again whenever I need a peaceful stay.

After a long time, our big family (18 persons) planned a Diwali trip together and were looking forward to it. I was recommended this place by my friend- Hiral Desai and once we reached there, we loved the place. They have 4 types of rooms - AC Suites, Indradhanu, Gulmohar AC Cottages and Non AC Cottages. We had booked 9 Gulmohar AC Cottages. We had paid Rs. 2750 per cottage per night inclusive of breakfast and dinner. The location is very good and you are surrounded by sugarcane fields. The food and service is also good. Dhom dam boating point is just 4km from this place. Also, Balkawadi dam is only 20km from Anandvan. The owner is also very friendly and gave suggestions regarding sightseeing points. One of the advantages is that Panchgani and Mahabaleshwar are very close to Wai. Overall a good offbeat place where one can unwind and visit the nearby places/points as well. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Gulmohar Cottage no 1 is the biggest room among all Gulmohar AC cottages. Also Indradhanu NON AC roo...

We had couple of night stay at Anandvan in Nov. first week. We were 4 families. This place is very near to Panchgani/Mahabaleshwar. We had chosen 'Indradanu' rooms. Rooms were quite specious and wel maintained. Staff was polite and Service was good. Food was just above average, but nothing really to complain about. Ideal place for bigger groups to relax and have some good time. Also checked other rooms, they were little congested. But overall it was very good experience.

I've stayed at Anandvan Holiday Home 4 times in the past 4 years. I bring groups of American college students to Wai for a service learning project and we're a needy bunch. The proprietor, Anand, always goes out of his way to help make our stay lovely and to take care of us. We take most of our meals at the place and he makes sure that we have a good variety of tasty and healthy foods prepared carefully. He gets to know the group members and truely becomes friends with his guests. The resort is lush and green with a great variety of flowering plants and fruit trees. It's located amid green fields and we enjoy the sounds of birds and frogs in the morning and evening. It's nice to have a few pets on the grounds as well. All of the smiling staff are eager to please, be it delivering wake up chai to our rooms or helping the students to put on their new saris. The accommodations are simple and rustic, nothing fancy, but comfortable. It's the service that really shines here.
