The hotel’s signature heated pool, overlooking the Western Ghats, is one of the features that makes the property so popular with residents of Pune and Maharashtra. We enjoyed an early morning class of aqua aerobics at the pool and relished the view, but our favorite part is the view from the balconies of the rooms at Hotel Lake View. Stunning views over the Western Ghats and occasional visits from the resident monkeys made the experience of waking up here truly memorable. Other than that, rooms are extremely spacious and equipped with all creature comforts you could possibly expect from an upscale hotel – bath tubs, chandeliers, indulgent shower cubicles, and comfortable beds with luxurious linen.
There are a number of dining options available to guests. The breakfast buffet is expansive and à la carte options are available for lunch and dinner. For these, we’d suggest sticking to local Maharashtrian or Indian food as continental food can be a bit hit and miss. If you’re celebrating a special occasion, we would recommend consulting the staff as there are a couple of gorgeous destination dining options. We really enjoyed our al-fresco Italian dinner by the fireplace.
Do not leave the hotel without booking yourself a spa treatment (or two). The minimalist spa, furnished in shades of white, induces a sense of calm the second you enter the building. Treatment rooms are extremely spacious and reminded us of ones we’ve seen in Mauritius and Maldives! As you know I’m really picky about massages but the treatments here are thoroughly relaxing and you are bound to leave feeling pampered. In fact, we’d go so far as to say the spa is the best part about Hotel Lake View Mahabaleshwar .You can book your stay at Hotel Lake View Mahabaleshwar here. It is ideal for couples and families. However please note that the hotel is not disabled friendly.
