Dining at Cloud9 Hills Resort Lonavala

The restaurant at Cloud9 resort is spacious and comfortable with a large screen wall TV. There are a few flies though which are kept at bay when the fans are switched on. 

A corner of the area is a kidz zone for toddlers. A TT & Billiards table is on one side and doors from the restaurant lead out to the pool.

Staying at Cloud9 Hills Resort Lonavala

We stayed at Cloud9 resort for 3 nights (arrived on a Sunday morning and departed early on Wednesday morning). We got a discount as we had booked for 6 people for the 3 nights, so do ask about special discounts when booking. The tariff was extremely reasonable & included breakfast, lunch, tea and dinner.

Cloud9 Hills Resort Lonavala review

We discovered Cloud9 Hills resort via the Tripadvisor site. While the older reviews were mixed, the more recent ones were good and hence we decided to stay there for a short break (13th to 15th April 2014). Also, the tariff was a big attraction for us, since it included not just breakfast, as is the case with most hotels & resorts, but all meals.
