The location of Brightland resort is very nice. The food is another usp of this hotel with multiple dining options. Enjoyed the veg restaurant and the italian fine dining. The spa is also very nice with some good therapies. While we did not take any ayurvedic consultations as were available there but did enjoy four hand massages.

Nice location if you like to stay away from the main town, good food, clean rooms. The Maple room was excellent, good decor, very spacious with a equally nice bathroom, while the Poolside deluxe where we stayed on day 2 was very basic. Valley view from most rooms. Decent gym. Friendly staff. Its about 15 minutes walk from Kates point.... More

Hotel Brightland is a very good hotel in Mahabaleshwar. I have visited this hotel many times, first visit being in 2007. It has very good buffet, especially the breakfast. Staying options are also good and wide. The best part is the quiet relaxing atmosphere in the edge of the hill bar. A wide drinks menu. You can sit there, relax... More
