5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

I checked in for 2 nights around end of march and had a great time . It's location is great with excellent scenery around . My wife n me r pure non- vegetarians but we enjoyed the veg food out here so much dat we didn't miss non veg at all . So if u give it a miss just for the veg food then think twice . No hotel in mahableshwar can Offer such delicious veg food . And the staff will do things out of their way jus to keep you happy . It also has a convinience store inside the premises . I didn't c a single thing missing at this resort. just a perfect weekend getaway .

I made a trip along with my wife to this resort on 15th September 2012. Guys 1st thing you will notice about this resort would be the courtesy & politeness of its staff. You will be amazed to see the service time taken by its staff. Just give them a call or tell them to do any task, You can consider that it will be done in minutes. Crowd in the resort was also descent. It is well maintained & lies in mahabaleshwar panchgani main road calm/quiet surrounding. You need to travel by your own conveyance so as mobility wont be an issue. Food in the restaurant was delicious but prices were slight above average.

Rest you are gonna enjoy this resort. if you need any other tip about this resort or mahabaleshwar you are most welcome to contact me.

Room Tip: You need to travel by your own conveyance so as mobility wont be an issue.

Went on a week-long driving trip with wife through Maharashtra. Mahabaleshwar was our first stop. Both of us were coming out of some intense work activity so wanted to relax in a nice cosy place. I chose Saj purely based on tripadvisor reviews and am glad I did so. We stayed there for two nights.


Pros: Great food: We are very selective about food. We have strong restrictions (pure veg, no onion , no garlic, no green chillies), at the same time we want food to be very tasty. Due to this we decided not to go with standard food they offer for nominal price with room rent. We asked them to customize many of there dishes according to our needs and we were satisified almost all the time. Of course we ended up paying much more for the food as compared to what we would have paid, if we had gone for their "food inclusive" plan but when it comes to food we do not compromise.

Good service: We were there in middle of the week during off-season so the hotel was quite silent. We chose a room with balcony, room was maintained to good standard and overall service was pretty decent. We always like hotels which give little personal touch to what they offer. During check-in while talking to the reception guy we were not satisfied with his response and suddenly a lady who seemed like senior manager / owner appeared from the inside room to address our concern. The way she addressed it it felt she was somehow keeping a close eye on how the reception team is handling guests.


Cons: Somehow I felt they are very skeptic with their customers when it comes to check out. During the check-in itself their T&C"s spell that if guest do not vacate room by check out time they reserve the right to move the luggage out to their cloak room. Then a day before we were supposed to check out, a member of staff rang the room bell (even though there was a "Do not disturb" tag outside) and handed us a strong letter reiterating the check out time and ofcouse their right to move the luggage to cloak room. When we were checking out, before we moved our luggage out from the room, a staff member came and checked all the things from mini-bar to the tv/AC remote as if police investigates a crime scene. To be honest it was quite pushy to say the least.

Overall would not mind staying again at the same place in future.

Room Tip: The rooms facing balcony are little more expensive but we found them worth it.

The Hotel was not inside the main town so personally i prefer that kind of a place. The people over there are really friendly and take great care for your comfort. Very few rooms though have the damp smell but they are ready to shift you to any other room which you find comfortable.

PRO
1. Excellent Food (only VEG) but really really brilliant
2. Excellent Staff

CON
1. The indor play area is open only till 11 thats was sad. Ideally you should allow the guest to
enjoy when he wants.
2. The Family Rooms can be little better.

I would so if you go to Mahabaleshwar just stay here & enjoy

Room Tip: Go for the New blocks...The rooms are better there.

Real test of the hotel/resort is when you stay there in off-season , I have experience that in off-season majority of hotels donot give more attention to their guest and room service and food remain very bad But for Saj Resort this is not the case.

They provided excellent quality food and no menu repeat during our stay, Saj Resorts food is comparable to any top class restaurant. Staff are so trained that they give individual attention each guest.

Room Quality is very good, accessories provided is neat and clean and in adequate quantity.

Location is also very Good 80% of the Mahabaleshwar's tourist point is nearest to this resort like kates point. Monkey Point and Mapro Food Court etc. And above that this resort is located on main Mahabaleshwar- Panchagani Road so very easy to access.

Lot of parking space for your car and for drivers they provide facility to sleep and bath, Security is also very good.

Children enjoyed lot of indoor games (like table tennis, carom) pool and lot space around the resort.

I will say a real place to relax.....Once you are in, leave everything on them....

Room Tip: If you are traveling with Family of four or five and children are above 12 then I will recommend to...
