Unhygienic Food and Badly Maintained Property
on Dec 25, 2017
I visited this property for a day picnic few weeks back with my family. It is congested, difficult to locate and badly maintained. Please don't form an impression based upon photos as they are misleading. The swimming pool tiles were broken and there was no life guard. Go karting was closed. Breakfast was ordinary and some of the items like chutney, idli etc were tasting odd as if they have become stale. The tea/coffee cups were not clean. Lunch was not ready even by 2 PM. Items in the lunch were okay but Paneer was clearly not fresh so we avoided it. My daughter and wife had their stomach upset after eating the food.
Apart from chess, carom and swimming pool (with broken tiles) there is absolutely nothing to entertain you in the property. When you spend 1100+ Rupees you do not expect this kind of service. Please avoid, better options are available in and around Lonawala.
Indigestion after eating food here
on Dec 24, 2017
We were group of 25+ people. We visited this resort recently for a family function and I rate the experience as TERRIBLE. There were hardly any other visitors (other than our group), although it was a holiday. We could enjoy only because we were in large group and meeting each other after a long time. You will get bored if you travel here as a small family as there is hardly any quality activity to pass your day
Now most TERRIBLE things - Few hours after eating here, 10-12 people in the group suffered from repeated vomiting, loose motions and other forms of acidity and indigestion and had to visit doctors. It may be noted that we, as extended family, came from different places to meet here just for a day and this was the only common food that we ate. So there is no doubt that the source of this indigestion was food at this resort only, and not anything else.
I would strongly advise you to stay away from this resort
A good place for a day picnic

We tried Whispering Woods Resort for a day picnic with family, and it provided us with the right amenities for the group. The package included breakfast, lunch and tea with snacks, and all the food items were good. The lunch included soup, salad, three curries - one veg, one paneer and one chicken, dal, rice and dessert. The breakfast spread was also good, though not lavish. All the items were delicious.
The facilities included a swimming pool (no life guard), an open lawn and games room with indoor games like fussball, table tennis, carrom board, chess board etc. There is ample room to hang around, sit down and relax - many chairs and tables. There is a play area for kids with slides and swings, too.
The staff was helpful, courteous and willing to please the customers. The service levels were pretty good.
The location is convenient, close to the highway, but is not in the midst of the hills or anything. The place has just sufficient parking, big groups may have a problem.
Overall, I would recommend this place for a day picnic.

We visited the resort for 10 hours which included breakfast lunch and high tea. The resort is very good and away from the city so it's peaceful.. one can enjoy the beauty sitting there.. gokarting was closed when we visited.. the spread of breakfast was good.. lunch as well.. the advantage we had is there were hardly any people when we visited.. so we were able to enjoy the entire resort.. kids enjoyed a lot as there is a Hugh ground to play.. swimming pool is ok..
Quiet place to relax.

Large resort with good service and food. Ideal for relaxing but needs improvement by management. There are no signage boards on man road to locate resort. No entertainment activity for children except swimming pool. Breakfast in dining room is a-la-carte and not buffet but unlimited and good. Service is very good by polite staff. Bit out of the way from main market but OK for vehicle owners and good for large group. Tent rooms are spacious but the deluxe rooms are too small particularly for family with a child. Extra bed for child is very small folding cushion set which is not comfortable. WiFi is available only in dining room. Tea kettle only in tent rooms.
