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
Had a great time with the family, conveniently located to explore the city and also go for the wine tastings . recommended for a quick gateway from mumbai . Service was superb . a huge garden for a nice evening walk
My 1st visit to this Taj property in Nashik. Truly lives up to the famous Taj hospitality..... neat spacious rooms. The higher category ones have balconies too, so do ask for them
The pool is big, the spa and salon also very good. Huge lawns, ideal for morning walks.
The breakfast , high tea and dinner spread was good. Excellent food where taste is concerned. Pintu In the restaurant took great care of us.
One bit of advice for senior citizens.... lots to walk especially if u don’t get rooms in the old wing.
One suggestion to the management.... please have someone to show us to our room.... we were left to ourselves, looking for the elevator, searching for our room and overall wasting a lot of time.
Otherwise , an memorable stay!
The Taj Gateway Nashik is very conveniently located. The moment you enter the gates; it feels like a different world! Taj courtesy starts from the gate. The way the security staff let you in tells you how well ingrained the courtesy is in Taj. Check in was swift. A long corridor with a artistic rendition of the vineyards and the experience keeps you occupied. Rooms are spacious, well appointed and everything is in its place. Wifi access with no fuss. Breakfast is at two locations starting at 7:00 am. However; even if you land up at 6:30 they welcome you and cater to you. We had a 3 day conference in the Grand ball room. It is large and can accommodate 300-500 people easily. Food is good and arrangements efficient. There is a Zen garden for those morning walks and a kids play area too. Check out is quick and efficient. Wonderful experience overall!
The whole experience of the hotel was amazing, would highly recommend to anyone! It was our wedding anniversary during our stay.
