“Love the calmness and peace”
Reviewed 26 June 2014 via mobile

Ekaant is always my favourite place in Lavassa. It's so calm and peaceful. And I love staying on mountain top. Sunset view is amazing. Their breakfast is also very good. Servicing and on demand food is also of high quality.

You can always hire a private cab from Mumbai or Pune to reach there. It takes about 4 hours from Mumbai in a cab. It's advisable to keep cab and driver there otherwise it's long walk down the hill from the resort.

I had been to Ekant Retreat in last week of May along with family for a short break. The location was excellent and the view from the room was breath-taking. Try to get the rooms at upstairs to get the awesome view. Also the rooms are well-maintained and clean. Food is bit costly but it's same everywhere in Lavasa. They have a Buffet in their restaurent called 'Vedant' but we ordered in the room itself and enjoyed our Dinner in room's terrace (by looking into colourful fountains in waterfront at night).
Also we played all indoor games after a long time (like badminton, carrom etc). Kids also enjoyed as they have a small garden inside.

Overall it was a very nice ambience..pleasent stay. (like it's name Ekaant).
Highly recommended...............

A visit to Lavasa was long pending. And when started searching for a hotel we stumbled on to this one...The place promised a lovely view and we were not let down. Infact this hotel gives the best birds eye view of the lake and the mountains.

Check in was without a fuss...and although we checked in late we were served lunch promptly (they had closed the restaurant by then)... One of the hallmarks of a good quality hotel...customer service.

All the 3 rooms we took had a balcony for sit outs and the weather was just right (in the month of march). The resort has well kept garden and play area.

In short, excellent rooms, restaurant, service and view... Must stay place while in Lavasa.

Room Tip: Select upper floors. Has balcony with a view...

I visited Lavasa in start of the monsoon with two other couples. Lavasa is indeed getting developed as a little Portofino in India and Ekaant is really the place to stay. Following are the reasons why.
-Excellent stay and ambience with cleanliness.
-Polite and always helpful staff.
-Excellent food quality and taste.
-Awsome view of the lake, hills and the town from every corner of the hotel at the top of the hill.

I will definitely visit again and stay here only.

Excellent hotel and amazing view of the lake and mountains . Away from the main lavassa hub. Went in May 2014 for a night. Chilled out place if you r looking to unwind away from city life. It was the Fame 2014 festival that weekend . So got to see some of the artisans and performances

Hi,

I stayed in May 2013. the location and view of resort is amazing. The rooms are nice & well maintained. The service is also good but food is average. Staff is very co-operative. Overall very nice experience. I would suggest visit this resort at least once.

Thanks

Location & View: Best 5/5 - It has the best location in lavasa
Rooms: Great 4/5 - Has a great balcony but shared with another room
Food: Great 4/5 - We only had breakfast. The chutney was out of the world. The view from the restaurant is worth a see.
Amenities: 2/5 - However amenities is not the reason you stay here. It has a small garden and they offer badminton.

This place is unique in lavasa. It is situated away from the other hotels. It gives a birds eye view of lavasa, it is quiet and scenic.

We were let down by the manager. He was unfriendly. While paying the check I asked him for a pen so that I could write a review and he was least concerned. We found him impolite.

The staff at room service and also the restaurant are very good.

Overall recommended but don't expect favors or a friendly talk from the manager.
