Memorable Trip, Warm Stay
on Dec 25, 2017
We struggled for months to get a booking here. But the wait was worth it!
Nestled high up on the foothills of a hill & close to the banks of the lake, is the beautiful Malhar Machi. The resort is beautifully set with cottages either overlooking the lake or placed higher up near the hill. Apart from the regulars - swimming pool, spa & indoor game facilities; there are special attractions like farm animals, fruits & vegetable plantations & a massive nature walk. A tractor ride or a horse ride is also available for the guests. Hi-tea amidst a soulful sitar & tabla performance + the gala dinner with singers, karaoke & a bonfire; make it a cherishable experience.
The buffets have more than a decent spread & the taste is quite good.
But what makes the stay warm & comfortable, is the never-failing hospitality of the staff! Every member of the staff makes you feel so special, that you truly experience ‘atithi devo bhavo’ like nowhere else!
very upset with their booking

I heard a lot about this place... I was following them since last 15 days to book 2 rooms on feb 2018. Initially, they said there is 1 whole resort booking inquiry going on if that doesn't go ahead u will be our first preference. I called them every alternate day just to check the status. Today when I called them again then I got info.. all premium rooms are already booked by someone else. If i was on the first preference on what basis they have given rooms to other people.
They, don't have professionalism. no courtesy to inform us. I have wasted 15 days by contacting them. I will never go to this nonsense place again.
Very shabby service

We had gone here as a couple in the midst of monsoon after hearing a lot. We arrived a little early and expected to wait for some time before getting our rooms. We were however asked to wait 10-15 mins since the room will be ready soon. After this began our very disappointing stay,. We waited for well over an hour and a half to get the room- in between we were not told at all that there will be a delay, or we would have easily explored the property till then!
We went in for lunch- the first ones to get in the restaurant. We took buffet and after serving the starters, all the windows were closed and a person came in with some fumigation to 'drive away the flies'. This left a horrible stench during the middle of our lunch! I complained about this and left the dining room in disgust. We returned half an hour later to finish our lunch. The spread was good, but the taste was strictly average,
We had stayed in a valley view room. The door bell resembles a jungle at 3am and the staff will not hesitate to ring it two three times if ur in the wash room. The bathroom had absolutely NO HOT water for the two days we were here. The rooms are so close to each other that noisy neighbours can be heard and so can the tv!
In the evening (The view is awesome!) we sat out around 5pm to have a nice cup of tea facing the valley. To our dismay there was some kind of arti going on in the village (using speakers at full blast) which would completely destroy the atmosphere for the next two hours.
Luckily I had got my firestick along (and hoping the free wifi will do the rest). The wifi is a joke- I had to stream through my mobile! And the televisions do not have a remote! They will only give u the satellite remote not the tv remote! This is the first time I saw something so ridiculous. I had to call the reception to ask for a remote and at first they just repeated that yes there is no remote after insisting that I need one, they followed up with one.
The food gets repetitive after the first two meals. The dinner loud orchestra is not wat u want in a place like this!
It was good that we had just booked two nights (the initial plan was for 4!) Otherwise we would have checked out in 2 nights anyway.
This is a overhyped, overloud and noisy place! Strictly avoid!
Extremely beautiful with lush green surroundings

I would highly recommend this place if you wish to relax and enjoy some great meals. We were a group of 9 and had booked the dormitory. It was spacious and well planned. The staff is good.Special mention for the Hi-Tea. They served freshly baked cookies and biscuits and they were yum. I loved everything about this place. Looking forward to visit again.
Serene place, comfortable stay, pleasent weather and excellent property and service

Been here with friends for 1 night stay, stayed in dormitory and was very impressed with everything of here. Awesome property, courteous staff, superb hospitality, yummy food and in midst of pure fresh greenery and nature. I must say very well maintained property and worth every penny. Staff is very helpful and kind and courteous. Food has lots of variety in all meals. Property is in midst of nature hence feels very relaxing and unwinding. They have bonfire & DJ in night. Karoke with beautiful singers singing your requested songs. Very clean and neat rooms. Very good for family with kids also and couples too.
