Mahabaleshwar - Accomodation Suggestions Required
So I will be taking my first self driven vacation in India after a long time with the family of 3. Plan to take my MJD E+ to Mahabaleshwar (and Panchgini) for 3 days.
After reading many posts here narrowed down on
Route: Bombay-Pune (via Expressway)-Shirwal-Wai-Panchgani-M'War
Plan: Siteseeing but also a lot of indoor activities with kid. To sum it up
- A couple of points (2-3 max)
- Venna Lake + Boating Activities
- Mapro Factory
- Sherbaug @ Panchgani
- Table lands visit
- Swimming, Tennis and activities @ hotel for a couple of hours daily
- Pratapgadh fort (if time permits, perhaps when we leave from the destination)
Stay: Here's where I need the cost effective suggestions
Called the hotels, and the two most likely candidates were Brightland and Dreamland
They have no packages only daily rates; where I think Brightland is the most expensive. But Clear Trip has a 2N/3 day stay with only breakfast at 11K
So I thought this was a good deal since I may not have all the meals at the hotel.
- Dreamland (~15K with all meals)
Pros: Decent hotel.
Cons: Decent hotel. Brightland clearly has a lot more to do. And with cleartrip discount, this one's more expensive although all meals are included.
- Saket Plaza
I can use feedback and suggestions?
Edit: And suggestions where I can get a medium sized thermocol based Icebox (like the ones they use for icecream delivery)? Would use this to carry water and chill other fruits for the journey.

2 nights and 3 days are sufficient for mahaby and panchgani.
no need to stay at panchgani.
@sherbaug, better if avoided, waste of time and money.
pratapgad, must, don't skip it, better if you do it in the morning or evening.
aurthur point, bombay point, kates point, kshetra mahabaleshwar and elephant head point should be done.
while coming back from mahaby to pune, you can do mapro garden and panchgani tableland[ tableland should be done in the evening].
i always recommend hotel dreamland.

on Valley view. We stayed there last summer. Nice clean place. Good pool. They have a few indoor games as well for the kids. The food is good as well. Plenty of varieties and spreads for the buffets. The only problem i had was with the access to this place.
