We had fixed my Nephew's wedding at SAJ on the 29th of April 2013 and had booked the resort almost completely to accomodate all our guests and to conduct all wedding related functions at the various beautiful locales well within the resort.
The Common areas in the resort are beautifully maintained and the room interiors are modest but neat and clean.
The linen provided is excellent and the hospitality is also good. The resort manager Mr.Rikov is dynamic and responds quite well to guests' needs.
The best part is the Food - This resort is a pure vegetarian's delight. The taste, quality and variety of the food here truly titillates the taste buds and makes us feel wanting to head for the restaurants again and again.
The few negative points that I felt were:
1.) When I needed to use the resort's computer and take out a few print outs, the front office guy's response was very unfriendly and he said "Printouts are not allowed" - which is very impractical.
2.) The entry to the resort is a very steep incline and I would definitely suggest the management to have parallel steps on the side-walk.
I would definitely love to be at Saj for its Food whenever time takes me again to Mahabaleshwar :)
