Le Meridian Mahabaleshwar puts off opening by another month

There are two resort properties I have been very interested in recently. One is the JW Marriott Mussoorie Walnut Grove Resort & Spa, which I visited the last weekend, and the other is the Le Meridien Mahabaleshwar Resort, which was due to open March 1, 2015. The reasoning is the same, these resorts are the first entries of these marquee brands in the luxury hill station resort segment in India, and I’d love to figure out how they bring a difference to the earlier experience.

Anyhow, I was very excited to go to over to the new upcoming resort in the coming month, however I then received the dreaded email yesterday:


You see, I had reservations there, and there is nothing the hotel even did to make it good except send a bland email saying they were moving the opening.

The bottomline is, don’t make plans here at this point of time. I’ll come back when the hotel really really opens!
