This was my second stay in Brightland. Last year I went with my wife and really liked the resort. So I decided to go back this monsoon with my parents and sister. Booking a super duplex cottage through their Mumbai office was smooth. We reached the resort around 4:30 pm and the check-in was super fast. The room was stunning... More

This Resort is spread over a huge area in Mahabaleshwar, certainly a good resort if you plan for friends/family get together. This encompasses enough amenities within, to go elsewhere in Mahabaleshwar. Costlier but worth if you succeed in booking the room with hill view. Staff is not very great. Restaurants within are very good, advisable is to eat within this... More

We had a good experience except the initial hassle of being allotted the right room. Food was good but the service was little slow. However, on the whole a decent experience provided you are not expecting too much from the facility

Brightland Resort is lucky to have beautiful surrounding but is just an average place to stay. It lacks hygiene value even in restaurant. Ambience outside is decent owing to natural beauty and locale. Staff and management of Brightland Resort can do well by improving on aspects of warmth, courtesy, cleanliness and room comfort. I don't recommend for someone going to... More

The resort comes on the way to Kates point in Mahabaleshwar, so keep an eye when you drive up from Panchgani to Mahabaleshwar (it comes before you reach Venna lake). So, as we entered the hotel, the reception incharge was quick to give the keys and ask the helper to guide us to our room (near second gate). Before that... More

While receptionist gave a text book answer exhibiting his reluctance, it was Mr. Menon who came to rescue. Since there was no booking on sunday he promptly... More

Despite all the praise for it, I wasn't expecting this from Brightland. When I entered Brightland, I saw a typical 3 star reception and lobby, you'd expect at a hill station resort. But I was blown when I entered my room. It was a huge room with all the 5 star amenities like a comfortable king-size bed, big TV, huge... More
