“Decent property strategically located”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

I was here with my office collegues one of them a French National. So my comments .....

Location: Strategically located between Panchgani and Mahabaleshwar. Which means you can plan out your sight seeing perfectly and also match it with the lunch and dinner timings of the hotel. The flip side is that you always need a vehicle at your service. But i preferred this for a serene environment , away from the main market chaos.

Rooms: Were neat and clean....(look much better in the website photographs though!!!) but nothing to complain about.

Food : Fantastic !!! nothing more to add than this.

Staff : Good and friendly...(we were given bit more attention probably because of our French Colleague :) ) ..... I would give a thumbs up to them.

Value for Money : Hmmmm !!! i think that is where the issue is....i would rate this place a bit expensive....

we visited this resort for 3 nights and 4 days from 19th April to 22nd April. It was a great experience. we enjoyed the stay in every aspect. the staff was very courteous and helping. the parking place was adequate. the food was delicious. But they serve best vegetarian food. But if you wish to enjoy the non veg food there are so many good food places and hotels to serve you. It is situated just about 2 Km before venna lake. and entry point for Mahabaleshwar.each and every day there are some events arranged in the resort. Like Magic show, DJs, Some good films, Musical and cultural programs. It is on some what on hilly site and you can see the valley and the scenic views. The swimming tank is also clean and well maintained. My self and our family really enjoyed the stay.

Room Tip: if possible and rooms are available choose a room that gives a view of the valley.

You feel out of this world the luxury rooms in white give you a feel that you are in Athens which is shown in Hindi movies all white wash with a sit out.I give 10/10 to this resort.
The room is spacious with tea coffee maker, 2 bottles of mineral water & cookies baked from their bakery on arrival is given complimentary but bathroom is small compared to room size but all the modern amenities & basic needs are sufficed.Opposite to these rooms are cottages which are also good cottage have mini fridge.Choose their all meals plan which is really good as they serve lots of variety in food.all the staff is courteous,smiling & helpful.
Dinner is organized at their coffee shop or at a Big Lawn which is Royal Garden with d.j & magic show for kids.They also have Spa,small gym,recreation area with games.swimming pool is small but they say that they are going to make a new swimming pool .............

This was my first visit to this resort but would surely love to come back in monsoon as mahabaleshwar is beautiful in monsoons........

I have visited Saj Resort last year in November & planned to visit again family & friends for a weekend for three nights.Very nice resort with flowers around to relax after hectic March.
But to my surprise from my last visit they are upgrading themselves in each & every aspect of hospitality.
Everything is to perfection from their rooms to the courteous staff & food served.....(During lunch they serve yummy aamras in their signature Gujarati Thali).

Dinner too has large spread with Italian/Mexican/Chinese & fast food ..........

Good Team work...............Definitely when in mahabaleshwar it has to be Saj
