Here are top 5 reasons to visit Club Mahindra Mahabaleshwar Sherwood
1. The very large Resort
The resort is huge and theres. e are many activities and the sign boards that guides you to the different place. You can walk around the beautiful resort at leisure, soak in the stunning view or enjoy a cup of tea at the sunset point overlooking the beautiful scenery. You can also take a dip in the swimming pool or just laze by the poolside flipping your favorite magazine and sipping on Mojito.
This is the beautiful sunset point overlooking the deep valley which is covered in mist which just adds more beauty to it. You can stay at this point for hours together, get cozy with your spouse and click some stunning pictures. Below is the view of the small field where they grow their own strawberries, brocolli and few other vegetables. It’s so refreshing to stand here and just feel the breeze and breathe fresh air.
While visiting any resort or holiday, accommodation and rooms play the vital role as the whole experience of your vacation is based on the comfort and luxury of your stay. While with Club Mahindra you are always spoiled by choices. There is a different class of rooms as per your membership and you are entitled to select room according to it. But nevertheless there are options wherein you can negotiate for a particular room if you want to experience their grandeur and luxury.
Chef Aditya who gave us the tour of the entire property showed us one of their best luxury room which is allocated to the privileged members of Club Mahindra. This West View room is situated a little far off from the main gate of the resort and involves a little bit of walking, but worth it once you reach the room. It is a 1 Bed room apartment which has all the modern amenities and also has a Jacuzzi bathtub and a shower area with a view of the mountains and forest. Now this surely rings the bell for the frenzied hearts!!
There is a magnificent view of the green landscape and hills from the balcony where you can soak up the sun in the morning and enjoy the view in the evening.
The guests are welcomed with fresh fruits and some goodies that are specially made by Chef Aditya. Overall this room with a view is something I really crave for making my holiday special. I am surely going to visit this resort again very soon for experiencing all of this.
3. Scrumptous Food
We were in food haven when we first saw the sight of the elaborate and scrumptious buffet at the Saddle Back restaurant. This restaurant is is located at a higher level which offers amazing views of lush green valley. The dining area is spacious with leather sofas and colorful glasses that gives a vibrant look. The buffet spread was an absolutely delightful in all its means. It had so many variety of dishes from their special Brine Pickles, to soups, salads, starters, mains and desserts.
The spread was delicious and they had dishes from various cuisines, North Indian, Italian, Continental and Maharashtrian Cuisines and few more. Desserts were good and the kheer was simply delicious. There were enough options for vegetarians as well as non vegetarians. This is the best part of Club Mahindra, when it comes to food they pamper you with so many options and uber delicious food.
They also have an A-la-carte menu, that includes all the cuisines, as well as fresh and authentic dishes. Chef Aditya was delighted to serve us some authentic Maharashtrian dishes that he cooked specially for all of us. He made Thalipeeth, Baingan raita (one of a kind), pitlu and bhakri. This authentic Maharashtrian dishes made our experience a notch higher and the warmth and hospitality shown was indeed memorable. Food and Beverage Manager Mr. Vivek Kumar was nice, humble and interacted with us and explained us few dishes that were new to us. The way they all treated me and my family was remarkable and will always be memorable. The staff members were also on their toes to offer their services and served us hot rotis, parathas and naans. They catered to all our food needs and gave us an excellent service.
The Activity area is the most sought out feature of any Club Mahindra resorts. They arrange nice events at regular intervals, plan creative and interesting activity for kids, conducts cooking sessions with the chefs, dance sessions with the experts, game sessions and not to forget Housie games for everyone in the house. They also have ice hockey, pool table, video games for those high on adrenaline.
They always see to it their members are entertained, occupied and never get bored. Karaoke sessions are also held to hone your singing skills or probably just to screech and yell on top of your voice. Well who cares as long as one is having fun!!
5. Free Zone
Free Zone is a total chilled out place to sit and play indoor games. You can play as many games for as many hours you want and just chase away the boredom. Games like Carom boards, Jenga, Ludo, Snakes-and-Ladders and many more are kept to play where you can bond with your kids while playing with them. You can also grab a bicycle and go for a ride with your loved ones and enjoy looking around the property.
The whole concept is to be with your family, interact with other families, and acquaint with new people. The experience gained and shared is something that you will cherish for your life time-that’s a promise!!!
