This place "Banasura Island Resort" is located quite distant from the the reach of the main city and traffic. And this is the reason we go out looking for destinations which is far from the pollution, traffic, tension and stress. This resort has everything that a person could find when looking out a place for leisure. We have stayed there...

We visited the resort in Oct'16 based on the reviews and photos we found online. We were very excited and looked forward to a memorable stay. However, it was a major turn down. The room they gave us was pathetic and very badly maintained. Everything in the room was an eyesore. Hard bed, no a/c, noisy fan, bad lighting, no...

I am a all for a nice Bulcony and this resort had onbe of the best balconies i have lived in. The view covers the lake, Forests and the hills. It was a delight to do armchair bird watching from the balcony. Also have nice infinity pool (was not ready when i visited) The service is good.

I had booked this place on the insistence of my wife although I was a bit skeptical after going through a couple of reviews in TA. Bookings over travel portals had sold out by the time I decided to...

Visited with family in Oct 2016. Beautiful resort nested next to the forest land. As the name says, this is a real retreat. One has to just sit back, relax and retreat into silence. Good cottages, sufficient food choices, beautiful pool. Staff r very friendly. This is a retreat located close to forest land and quiet interior. So do not...

I chose this place after researching quite a bit on Trip Advisor. There were quite a few resorts that had better rating and offered luxury stay. However, the location was truly impressive (based on the pictures posted by management & travellers). Moreover, the manager was quite responsive and I believe I got a deal for the honeymoon cottage for 3...

Banasura Island Retreat is a descent resort situated in a picturesque location. It's main USP is its location with a breathtaking view of the Banasura Dam waters surrounded by hills. However apart from this there is nothing much in particular. The money that one pays is not surely not of value. Our cottage was unclean and seemed it was not...

The view when you reach is breathtaking. The rooms are spacious and the best part is the balcony with a "katte" to just sit/lie on and gaze at the reservoir. They had a beautiful campfire in the open at night and it's thick forest all around. That said, the bathrooms, beds and kitchen are more of a homestay quality than...
