Set on 11 tree-studded acres of landscaped gardens, the Gateway Hotel Ambad Nashik is an elegant heritage-style retreat. The cream and terra-cotta exterior harks back to India’s golden age of marble-clad havelis, and the lobby strikes an opulent tone with polished floors, high vaulted ceilings and a glittering chandelier. The grounds feature impressive sports facilities, including a large, palm-fringed pool, tennis courts and a cricket pitch. The 70 guestrooms feature dark wood floors, indigenous artworks and chunky colonial-style furniture. The toffee and chocolate marble bathrooms are similarly swank, with oversize washbasins and walk-in rain showers. For extra space book one of the three Executive Suites; they come with large living rooms overlooking the pool. Sample Maharashtrian cuisine at Panchratna, then round off the evening with a gin-and-tonic at the buzzy Somras bar, open seven nights a week.
In the Area
Demand for Indian wine is rapidly increasing, but Sula Vineyards, just nine miles from the hotel, is one of the few vineyards set up to receive visitors. The 1,800-acre estate features a state-of-the-art tasting room, a top-notch restaurant and an open-air amphitheater for parties and special events. For a window on the region’s rich history, head to the Pandav Caves, a series of 24 intricately carved grottos dating back to the 3rd century BC; there are Buddhist statues inside, and many of the inscriptions on the walls are still legible. Don’t miss a visit to Kalaram Mandir, in nearby Nashik; this beautiful black stone temple was built in 1788 using 32 tons of gold.
How to Get There
We have been visiting Gateway Ambad for over 5-6 years now. Its a beutiful property with very friendly and helpful staff. The food is great and the facilities are very good.
We as a family look forward to every visit to this property.

what a heritage building. excellent exterior, beautiful in night. interior is superb. Food is great. staff is courteous, a little on lower side, but manageable. rooms are clean but furniture is old. needs replacement.
We were there for our 10th Anniversary. The hotel arranged for a wonderful cake. An excellent stay. Very courteous staff. Excellent service. Wish to see more activities within the premises. Breakfast could have been more Western. Kids area could have been bigger
The Gateway at Nashik doesn’t only spell Hospitality it all stands for luxury and courtesy personified!!! Our trip was made memorable by Sutapa at the front desk, who gave us the perfect time to remember. The location of the hotel was superbly placed, away from the hustle of the city and at the same time being a stones throw away to the Highway, making it the most convenient place to stay. Perfectly well maintained premises!
Sutapa rocks and the Taj Group of hotels must recognize what a perfect gem they have working with them 👍🏻
