“A Decent Hotel”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

We stayed at Sunny's Retreat for 4 nights in their Deluxe Room. The official price for the room is Rs.4999/- . When we called them up, we were offered a discount, and for 4 nights they were offering us Rs. 3200/- per night. We managed to book the rooms, from 'Make My Trip', which worked out at Rs. 2750 /- per night, including all taxes and fees. When we asked about the price discrepancy, we were told that, it is a special price for 'Make My Trip'!
For Rs.4999 /-, the rooms are overly priced. There is no pantry set, no toiletry kit, no mini fridge, not even a bottle of water for at least quenching your thirst when you arrive. These are standard offerings at most hotels that cost Rs. 4999/- !
The hotel is located at a convenient location, just about 3 minutes drive from center of Lonavala. Despite the location, the place is pretty quiet, with very little traffic noise.
The spacious room and the clean washroom are fitted with good quality fixtures and has a lovely large window. It was heartening to see a/c's with 5 star power rating being fitted in the rooms!
The food was very oily and spicy. For french fries, chaat masala was mixed into it!! Atleast, when doing something unusual, I feel, they should ask the guest if they would like to try out something different.
The fan too was dusty and the day we arrived garbage could be seen from our window, though they cleaned it up the next day.
So, if like us, you are going just for the comfort of the room in terms of cleanliness, relaxation and quality of sleep, it's good to go for.

Sunny's Retreat is located just 5 mins walk from the main Lonavala market. As we visited the place on the weekday for 2 nights, it wasn't crowded and we had the best time. We booked the Super Deluxe Rooms for very good discounted rate and found it to be a total value for money. The rooms are clean and spacious, the bathrooms clean and tidy and the staff very courteous who serve you with smile on their faces.

The hotel provides free indoor games like Foosball Table, Table Tennis and Carrom board. The Pool table is also available for a nominal charge. The swimming pool is quite small but kept clean. The hotel also provides car service for Lonavala sightseeing.

Overall its a good peaceful place to stay. There is little to complain about.

Sunny's Retreat at Tungarli, Lonavala is a quaint little place. A rather new location, this place gave a fabulous experience to my family and me when we visited the same in July 2013. Be it the clean rooms, the service provided by the staff, the quality of food served or the general ambiance, there is little to complain about. We enjoyed a fantastic service provided by Sunny and his team.

Hotel is nice and comfortable - room (linens, blankets) are well maintained, bathrooms are very clean, staff is very co-operative, food is good but limited options available, no bar but staff can provide drinks in room, swimming pool is extremely small, table tennis board present. Overall its value for money if you plan to explore Lonavala and do not want to stay in the hotel. Also, car rentals provided by the hotel are expensive but premium in service.

Good value for money, located near the heart of the city. The rooms are sparse though, not much decor, basic bedding, and a small TV. But its fine as you should ideally be traveling and coming back to the room just to hit the bed. No free breakfast though.
