Lake Pavna Tungi Club Mahindra Resort
Best place to Visit around Lonavala
I have always admired this huge and magnificent property Tungi Lake Pavna of Club Mahindra for its splendid natural beauty. It has been one of my favourite resorts for relaxation and rejuvenation.
Tungi Lake Pavna resort is secluded from the hustle bustle of the city and is nestled amidst the Tungi mountain and is surrounded by lush greenery and serene lakes. The view here is spectacular and leaves you awestruck.
The moment you enter the reception, you will be welcomed with their profuse smile and a welcome drink. The check in process is very smooth and the staff members are polite and very kind. The view from the reception area is extremely scenic and mind boggling. After all the check in process is done the staff members will guide you through your rooms and escort you in a buggy. The property is huge and there is also a toy train that helps you to commute from your rooms to activity zone or restaurant. It is a boon for elder people and kids alike who can’t walk a lot when tired.
The rooms at Club Mahindra Lake Pavna resort are very well maintained, nice, comfortable and neat. We had stayed in a Studio apartment with a lake view. The room was well lite, and the stunning view made our stay even more memorable. The room has a dry kitchenette area, a microwave, hot water kettle, tea and coffee supplies, sofa cum bed, TV, a small fridge and everything that one needs for a comfortable stay.
The housekeeping staff were also very prompt, polite and were on their toe to offer their services. We did not have to wait for anything and our requests were taken care of very nicely. Really appreciate the hard work they all do to keep their guests happy.
Restaurants and Food:
Food makes memories that lasts for a lifetime. This is exactly what I mean when I talk about @ restaurants at Club Mahindra Pavna Resort Ripples and Amara. Please continue reading to know my experience about these 2 places and what memories I have had here at Pavna.
Food is the main part for everyone when you visit a place for a holiday as it defines our stay in terms of satisfaction. There are 2 restaurants Ripples that serves authentic Indian cuisine and also continental dishes with some scrumptious desserts. They have lip-smacking spreads for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. However one can also opt for Ala Carte options that are available in the menu section and for those who do not prefer to have a spread in the buffet.
We went for dinner on the first night as it was my birthday evening. We were not very hungry so we preferred a la carte. We had ordered paneer makhani, dal makhani, rotis and naans. The taste of the food was very authentic and delicious. We relished our dinner and guess what? I was in for a sweet surprise. Chef Siddhant and his team had planned a surprise birthday cake for me. Isn’t that something very thoughtful and a sweet gesture. My birthday evening was totally memorable.
All the meals that we ate here were lip smackingly good and I highly recommend to have meals here at Pavna Resort’s, Ripples restaurant. Chef Siddhant was very cheerful, kind and welcoming. Want to thank him for showing his kindness and warmth.
One day we were not in a mood to have any roti subzi and were not very hungry, so we opted for Hydrebadi Biryani and boondi raita. The biryani was flavorful and cooked with the correct amount of spices and vegetables. It was served with mix vegetable raita, papads and salad. We had a hearty lunch. Over lunch we met Mr. Amol Patil Head of Food and Beverage Department. He was extremely courteous and kind and we shared some conversation over lunch table. It was our pleasure meeting and engaging with him.
Mr Deepak, was extremely kind to us, prompt, alert and showed amazing hospitality. Do get in touch with him for any of your food queries or information about the resort.
Well, I want to deeply thank Manager Mr. Arun of Club Mahindra and Mr. Amol Patil, Mr. Deepak Head of Food and Beverage Department for arranging and hosting a very special dinner at Amara- fine-dining Pan Asian restaurant. Also a very special thanks to the Super Ched Anwar and Mr. Shakti for hosting me and my family that night. It will be the most memorable Birthday dinner of my life.
Now such kind of service can be expected only from Club Mahindra. I feel blessed to be a part of it.
The entertainment zone or the Happy hub is a nice place to keep yourself and kids occupied. They have games like carom, chess, jenga, ludo, ice hockey, and many more. Many art and craft activities are also held with minimum amount of cost. We had an amazing time here and kept ourselves entertained playing all the games. Its also a good place to interact with other other families.
Time to time they have activities planned out for all the members. They arrange party games, housie, karaoke, Dj night, cooking classes and many more activities.
Mr. Sushil, head of Happy Hub Department is super creative and imaginative. He was always on his toes to look out for everything related to this department. He is a nice person to interact with with an open mind for suggestions. Also, after talking with him for an hour, I realized that he has many more plans to make this happy hub even more happier and full of action. Kudos to his efforts and vision. I am sure next time when I visit this place, it will be buzzing with more and more activities.
Also the new highlight this time was 9 D action movies which we got an opportunity to see and feel. It was such a thrilling experience that we all had a fantastic time in that short span of virtual reality.
They have an infinity pool facing the magnificent mountains and overlooking the lake. It is so beautiful and one must surely spend time here. Unfortunately, while our visit it was raining heavily and was very cold, so we could not use the pool, but have used it many times before in our earlier visits. There are also other 2 pools and 1 Jacuzzi pool to chill and relax.
A comforting vibes exudes the moment I enter this Svaastha Spa. This place is where my heart lies. I am in love with the layout of the spa in such picturesque surroundings. The whole ambiance is simple enthralling and the water body that they have created simply captivates your mood. I highly recommend to indulge into the spa here as it will surely transform you to your momentarily comfort zone.
The spa rooms are very well maintained, with nice and stunning valley view. The rooms are decorated with beautiful flowers and candles. The soothing music that plays simply adds to the mood.
Miss Nisha was extremely sweet, kind and cheerful and she showed us all the spa rooms, the facilities and also informed about the different types of massages.
Overall we had a a most memorable and amazing trip at Club Mahindra Tungi resort and I highly recommend this property for a weekend getaway. Do book this property well in advance to avoid disappointment.
