It was a great stay. Wonderful space. We stayed in a poolside superior with loft. Very clean and well maintained. Friendly staff. The food choices were limited but of good quality. The best bet is to go mid week when the prices are bit down. Liked the location- away from the crowd. Its ideal for a few days pure leisure... More

If try and reach this place using google maps, it may direct you through a bumpy forest path but the actual approach to the hotel is from the other side. The hotel has a fantastic view! The entire area on which the hotel is spread is huge. Here's... More

Had visited this in April 2015 and was welcomed by a smiling security guard not-so-smiling receptionist. We were given a room choice of Lavender which does not have valley view but we had to settle for that as the resort was full. Also given a choice to upgrade the next day., as we were staying for 2 days. The lavender... More

Brightland is an absolutely brilliant option in Mahabaleshwar. Spectacular Vistas, immaculate service, fabulous food, clouds ingressing into your room and balcony on a rainy day - along with a very very good spa and a wonderful pool with fun chutes for kids - so just go with it if you are planning for a family trip to Mahabaleshwar. Its interesting... More
