The drive from Mumbai is fabulous and the location is terrific. But thats where the honeymoon ends. We were two families with three under-10 children, so we decided on taking up a 3-room cottage. The cottages in this resort are 'unspoiled'- which translated to Travelesque means a lot of basic amenities are missing. Yes, hot water runs, but there are no TVs or Air conditioners. And its proximity to nature means that as darkness falls, a lot of the surrounding winged wildlife starts paying the guests a visit. The first night, since we were clueless, we had a Jungle Safari in our rooms.
We were further depressed on seeing the unwashed sheets and mangy blankets.
The staff is helpful and the food average. But there is no room service here and we had to either drive, or trudge our way to the Canteen in the main building by the gate.
The location is terrific, and the altitude of the area means that we had deliciously cool weather during our stay there. But that was ALL that we appreciated there! And its NOT something Blue Mormon can take any credit for!
The resort charges Rs. 2500/- for the cottage and we all thought it was steep considering the lack of cleanliness and amenities. It is only monopoly that allows Blue Mormon to get away with this! Even one more half-way decent place in the vicinity will spell doom for this 'unspoiled' resort.
