Reviewed 28 July 2013

This place situated away from the hustle and bustle of Lonavla is the place to be in when you want to relax and enjoy the simply amazing view of the countryside.
I have made almost 30 trips to this place and the aura and the ambience keeps bringing me back over and over again.
The staff is ever so courteous and willing to assist with a smiling face that you just dont feel like leaving!!

The personal attention of the management ensures that every trip is definitely a harbinger of the next one.

Kudos to the staff and management of Govindas..... its been 4 years since i first came in here and every time i wish to take a break from the mundane routine you keep reminding me that's its time to come back over and over again !!!!

The place is very good, peaceful and has beautiful surroundings. The staff was helpful and were co-operative when we reached late night.. They also gave us a late checkout without charging extra.. The food was good. The pool was clean and rain dance was cool.. The rooms are spacious and bathroom clean. They adhere to the standards. Place to be close to nature.. lot of greenery.. good breakfast..

Well they dont serve non veg and no bar.. But then there are lot many places around..

Loved it.. will be back soon..

First and foremost location at the highway if u have ur own transport then u can think if all the hotels and lodges there are booked and have no other choice. Lonavala station and bus stand is 12 to 14 kilometer away. All falsely written that a distance away. The rooms were clean but bathroom stinks and u cant enter the washroom. The service is bad.staff there are rude and have no courtesy. As we had choosen this place unfortunately our car broke down we asked them to arrange for auto but they denied and asked us to search by ourself. Then we ask if they can arrange car or cab to Mumbai that too they cannot. Atlast we went on highway to search auto but we were disappointed no auto available till half hour we came back and had argument then all of sudden they got number of auto. I wI'll always suggest do go ever.

We stayed at Govinda Resorts in July 2012. It is just on the outskirts of Lonavala on the Old Mumbai Pune Highway. We found the place quite decent, with spacious & well maintained rooms, Since Lonavala is always booked most of the weekends, one has to bargain and try for a better rate than what's quoted (we went in a group of 4 families)

Govinda serves only vegetarian, but Madhuban Dhaba which is just outside the Resort serves a variety of Non vegetarian food.

The breakfast was quite disappointing as the Menu was very limited, the food was cold & the guest were struggling to help themselves as there was a shortage of waiters .

We went to this resort last weekend. It is located on the old mumbai-pune highway, so locating this resort is not difficult. It is a good place to spend a calm weekend but lacks basic facilities and service is really poor. The roooms are ok but very average when you consider they charge 4500 per room. Even no hot water from the wash basin. The bed sheets are not clean and I could find small cokcroaches. However the balcony is nice and you get good views from the room balcony. Room Services can take ages , complimentary dinner for my parents took about an hour to reach. The veg restaurant is good but their associated non-veg place outside the resort is ridiculously poor. There are some great dhabas in 2-3 km , so better to have your food from these places. Only go for this place if you get something within 2000-2500, otherwise absolute waste of money.

Basic hotel, good for a 1 night stay. If you just need some place to stay overnight worth it...else in summary do not expect much. Rooms are spacious, view is nice(especially in the rainy season), bathrooms are average. Upkeep of the hotel is bad otherwise it would have been fabolous place to stay.If only the management spent some time and effort in maintaining what they have..i think it could have a brilliant property to stay(there is TT table but the racquets are broken, carrom boars is there but board is soiled, walls have plasters peeling off in some areas..) Staff is helpful...Food is veg with a non veg counter just outside. We had the morning breakfast..again don't expect much on the spread!!

All in all if the hotel management spends a little amount in upkeep/maintainence this would be a wonderful place to stay.

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor would be better
