This is a large sprawling resort on a hillside with a spectacular view over a valley. Has good nice rooms which are big enough. They need to work upon the conference Hall which is big but looks little old fashioned. Overall the place is decent and food quality is good. Staff is courteous and helpful. Prices are slightly higher than... More

We went in the off season monsoon weekday period. A tad bit slow service. Food tasted well but lacked options. State of our room was average. Kinda old. Overall an average experience compared to the cost.

Spent 4 days here in the month of May this year and thoroughly loved it. The hotel is really pretty and staff very courteous. The food is a bit on the steep side but overall great food.. Loved the Italian restaurant. Our room was average, we stayed in the pool rooms above the old block.. It was comfortable but basic.... More

A great place with awesome view and peaceful environment. A little away from the market place, but if you have a personal vehicle, then that's not a problem. Great restaurants to dine. The breakfast was awesome.

It is a nice place in mahabaleshwar, where anyways you don’t have any luxury properties (especially for non-vegetarians). Rooms are decent, service is good. Food is also nice especially breakfast spread. the only thing that I would highlight is that probably the price they charge is quite more than what this place otherwise should deserve. Location is awesome, my strong... More

This was our second visit to this lovely resort. It's a huge property and without doubt one of the best in mahableshwar. We stayed at the maple room...the room is big with a large bed and a lovely sit out. The bathroom is pretty big too and has a open to sky bath tub. The maple rooms are relatively new... More

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
