A suite is slightly larger than a room, is more spacious, has a kitchenette, and comes with a seating area or a separate living area. There are two categories of suites in Rhythm, namely Cypress and Banyan. The Cypress Suite is a studio suite and can accommodate up to three guests. The Banyan Suite (also called as the Family Suite) is larger than the Cypress Suite and it can accommodate up to four guests.

Cedar Lounge & Restaurant

Head to this trendy lounge bar for quirky cocktails and delicious Mediterranean appetizers. The best part about the Cedar Lounge is that it is separate from the main restaurant (The Treehouse Cafe) keeping in mind that the children below the drinking age, are not affected.

The Courtyard Poolside Bistro

The most alluring sight of Rhythm is its courtyard. It lights up beautifully at night and is the perfect place to enjoy the night sky. What’s even better is that there is a small poolside bistro near the courtyard that serves cocktails and plays pacifying music in the background.

Final Thoughts

The Rhythm Resort is one of the best environment-friendly resorts I’ve ever been to. Their love for nature reflects in their artistic design and the general aura of the resort. There were days when I woke up to the sweet chirping of birds. And to add to all of this, the warm hospitality of the staff made me feel very special (their reviews and ratings on various hotel websites throw light on their congeniality).

The food was an absolute winner for me! After mentioning my dietary requirements, the chef veganized every dish for me without even slightly compromising on the taste. The same gesture was shown to other guests as well, where we were dining. This made me realise that they treated every guest equally, with utmost care and hospitality.

On the whole, I was extremely satisfied with my stay at this resort and would totally recommend it if you visit Lonavala.
