“Awsome food and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Awsome food, great service and decent rooms... overall great resort with good ambience unless you want a resort with spectacular valley view (the only missing thing). Overall, I loved the place and food is the USP. ?I would say my visit for a day was indeed a value for money.

We visited Mahabaleshwar in October 2012 when we stayed at this resort. The place is clean, calm, quite and good for a comfortable holiday. The food they provide is of best quality. I am sure any Gujarati will just love the food. They also had best preparations for Jain Food. I recommend the all meals included package and I gurantee you will gain at least 3-4 KGs.. :)

The staff is very cooperative. Always ready to help. They also arrange for the taxis on a daily basis. The complimentary DJ disco night was awesome. It was a great surprise for us and we had great fun. The rooms are OK, not so good and not so bad, with all the basic amenities. Still I suggest the rooms with balcony in spite of higher tariff. it is slightly away from the town, but does not make much difference as it gives out so many things in the resort it self. The swimming pool is worst and noone will use. They do provide the tea-coffee suppliments in room. The tarriff is a bit on a higher side, but it is worth paying considering the food, location, rooms and overall services. They also allowed us early check in without any extra amount. For jain people, the best place to stay as the owner himself is Jain..

Room Tip: Try for the rooms with balcony. They are newly renovated.

We had chosen this resort for our sisters' reunion on 24th Jan 2013. All 15 of us, some from overseas, had the best experience at this place. Kartik Sir is a gem of a person. He made our stay memorable and personally saw to it that we were most comfortable. We have stayed at many other fancy hotels before, but this is one of the best so far. The food was most delicious with elaborate menus at all times. We had a gala of time. The rooms were very spacious and spotlessly clean with a most efficient staff. The property surroundings were attractive with lovely colourful flowers. There were also many other facilities like a spa. We sisters spent time playing games on the sprawling lawn. We all hope to visit Saj again.

Room Tip: Luxury room with balcony are great

The resort is situated right on the highway between Mahabaleshwar and Pachgani. We stayed in one of the the luxury rooms with balcony, which faces the highway. The highway proximity is an advantage when it comes to locating the resort, but a disadvantage if you stay in the luxury rooms with balcony, since the noise from the vehicles does reach the room throughout the day. We were a bit disappointed by this, but to the credit of the management they offered to show us alternative rooms the next day. Ultimately we did not change rooms, but you must remember this if you choose a luxury room with balcony.
A note to the management : as if the road noise is not enough some people (the large noisy group from Rotary club) stood below our rooms just outside the lunch restaurant talking and laughing loudly for almost an hour and half when we were trying to get some rest in the afternoon. This was a low point during our otherwise nice stay. Please ensure that such people are discouraged.

The resort itself is really beautiful with amazing flowers all through and a nice layout. The swimming pool is as large as 2-3 bath-tubs but since we visited in winter we were never really going to use it. The rooms are nice and well maintained - they give you the feel of a business hotel like say an Accor group hotel rather than a resort, but we liked it. The bathrooms are really nice but with a flip-side - they have a men's urinal (the standing type) inside the bathroom (for what reason I do not know) along with the usual western-style commode and it gave off a stink quite often. I would request the management to either make sure that the urinal is immaculately clean or to get rid of it completely.

The food at the resort is absolutely brilliant. Some of the dishes we had were the best ever in our opinion. Lunch is served as a thali in their restaurant, while dinner is served in an open function area with bonfires, music and other entertainment (there was a magic show too). We would suggest booking rooms with A.P., which includes 3 meals a day in the room booking cost as the a-la-carte menu is very expensive - 2 sandwiches and 2 cups of tea set us back by almost Rs 300.

The star of the resort is undoubtedly the service. All the staff are well trained and courteous. Some of them are quite friendly and will help you out with directions etc. If you want to buy strawberries we would suggest that you talk to some of the service staff in the dining areas, since they have a good rapport with the surrounding farms and will get you good and fresh strawberries at a reasonable price.

In summary, we would definitely recommend this resort, but choose your rooms carefully if you do not like noise. Also, marriages and other large functions are held at this resort (although we were lucky to avoid them) so please make sure you confirm with the hotel if you are the peace loving sort.

Room Tip: Avoid the luxury room with balcony if you want some peace and quiet.

Stayed at the resort on a AP plan during 29-Sep to 2-Oct 2012. The place is clean, calm and good for a comfortable holiday. Its slightly away from the town, but we didn't have plans to visit cities much as we had a small kid and had see it before. The food choices is excellent (atleast on weekend when crowds are more) Although its only veg and predominately gujarati (during lunch).
Overall i like the place and would recommend for 2-3 days of vacation.

I stayed over there just for 2 nights to celebrate this new year.
I went to the resort on 31st evening without any prior reservations and Fortunately as well as Unfortunately only Deluxe non ac room was available. Fortunately because I got the accommodation in mahabaleshwar and that too in very good resort without having any prior reservations for 31st Dec Night and Unfortunately because I am impressed with their basic deluxe non AC Room; however I did not get a chance to stay in their Luxury Room or Cottages.
It was my first visit to Mahabaleshwar and I wanted to explore mahabaleshawar along with the New Year Celebrations; however we got so much of comfort and enjoyment in the Resort itself that we hardly ventured out of resort for any sightseeing. I would keep that one for our next visit to Mahabaleshwar and SAJ Resort. After that visit I would come out with an updated Review about SAJ Resort.
To mention briefly about the Resort, I would say it’s a spacious, clean Modern as well as a nice Family Resort. Room was neat and clean. The Resort is full of Flowers and greenery. Staff was honest, Excellent, well trained and polite.The 31st Night Bash and Gala Dinner was handled efficiently and correctly. Food was excellent. I have nothing extra to say about the Resort as everything is mentioned in other Reviews about the Resort. I would say yes All the positive things mentioned in the other reviews are correct and just to mention Bedsheet and quilt quality in the room can be improved.

I would definitely come back to Mahabaleshwar and SAJ Resorts. Thank you for making my New Year Celebration memorable.

Room Tip: I am sure one has to go for the cottages..
