#2 of 20 B&Bs / Inns in Khandala
Hotel Girija threw open its doors in 1986 with a vision to provide its patrons with a truly memorable experience. The level of service has evolved with the changing times along with the infrastructure and facilities available to our guests. In keeping with this strategy, the property has seen several revamps and facelifts over the last three decades. Because we believe that while there is something eternally special about nostalgia, it’s also essential to constantly offer something exciting and innovative to our holiday makers. Our beautifully decorated and exceptionally comfortable deluxe rooms are equipped with all the modern amenities expected by today’s travellers. A special children’s playground within the hotel gates has also been quality checked and refurbished to ensure that your little ones can run around to their heart’s content without you having to worry about their safety. We also understand that while Khandala has become increasingly accessible from major cities like Mumbai and Pune, it has also become overcrowded and prone to traffic snarls, especially going towards Lonavala. Precisely why our in-house restaurant serves up an expansive menu of pure vegetarian cuisine to satisfy every appetite so you have everything you need within the property. A lot has changed since we welcomed our very first guests but some things are still the same and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Our rooms might be upgraded but the valley view from our fabulous location is still just as breath taking. Enjoy uninterrupted views of the Western Ghats at all times of the year with a unique flair for each season. Crystal clear in the summer, unbelievably green in the monsoon and splendidly foggy in the winter, you’ll never tire of looking at the endless expanse. Our contemporary restaurant has added Indian fast food staples like Pav Bhaji, Vada Pav and Paneer Makhani, but the Gujarati Thali is still unbeatable. So visit us today and we promise to make your stay with us full of exhilarating new possibilities with just the right touch of old world charm.

Great hotel in a perfect location, with a breath taking valley view. Spotlessly clean rooms and amazing amenities. Great breakfast and staff couldn’t do enough. Doesn't matter if you go with group of friends or with family there is something for everyone. Will highly recommend this hotel if you are in Khandala or Lonavala. :)

Interior design could be improved fir more user friendly. Need to improve a lot in maintaining rooms and food facilities. Room service needs to be more attentive. Location is really beautiful and facing valley. Cost is too high compared to the facilities.

We stayed for 3 days here. Everything went well from check-in. On our special request, they upgraded our room as it was my husband's birthday. Manager and staff were very co-operative and helpful. We also had food in their restaurant and I must tell you that food was very authentic and homely. Loved staying here.

PITHALE BHAKARI is a must try menu item if you want to taste authentic maharashtrian food. Location is also good. Further don't forget to tryout Thalipeeth. If you like pav bhaaji is also a good option.

Booked 2 cottages at Girija for a surprise birthday celebration for my husband with family in January 2016. we were 10 people in total and had good time here. celebrated the birthday with personalised bonfire at cold night on the edge of valley in khandala. staff was nice. although the set-up and amenities are little outdated but it has its own old world charm which we all liked. tried food for lunch which was very home like and nicely prepared. recommended for nice family outings and small fun.
