Located on Wai-Jor Road, we planned for a weekend stay with my Co-brother who had come from US with around 30 other relatives. Anandvan was selected for its economy as well as experience. The Gulmohar facility from the listed 4 was chosen with a card rate of Rs. 1750 for 2 persons and Rs. 500 for extra bed.
However, while checking out the next day, we were surprised to find these rates inflated to Rs. 2200 for 2 persons and Rs. 600 for bed (under the pretext that they had provided us a AC) and which was not the case in our initial telecon. We tried to reason him about the website offering only to get a reply that they were not updated. We had but little choice and paid the amount knowing that it would lead us to no-where.
The food was average, and one of the staff was drunk when he delivered extra bedding in the night. The stray dogs litter freely and it takes a while before someone cleans it up.
The monsoons made our stay bearable, but the parting shot was very poor.
Wai, is situated in the foothills of scenic Panchgani, Mahableshwar. These famous destinations are crowded and such little known resorts offer you best value without been too crowded.
