It was our first visit to Mahabaleshwar and we went straight to Saj. Property itself is very good with greenery, huts, benches, spa, restaurant and everything you expect in a four star property. Staff and management were very friendly, responsive and serious toward any feedback since we needed Jain Food. Located at very good location between mahabaleshwar and panchgani. Its close proximity to various tourist locations & points like kates point, etc... makes it a preferred choice. Would definitely recommend to everyone out there.

Room Tip: Great Choice for couples who wish to spend time together

Recently, we had been to Saj Resort, Mahabaleshwar and found it to be upto the Standard. We had taken a Family Luxury room (2 bed rooms with 2 attached bathrooms), which is good enough if you are going with grown-up kids or parents. The rooms were comfortable and so was the entire stay. The staff was quite helpful and courteous all thru' our stay (3 nights). The meals were very satisfying, with a wide spread and variety each time. Highly recommended, if you are looking for an economical but a luxury stay in Mahabaleshwar.

Room Tip: Though the place does not offer any view, any room is ok.

We had gone in the monsoon season. The resort was VERY well maintained. The service was really very nice. We had opted for buffet meals. The food was delicious and they had a great spread. We could not decide which one to not have.

Parking was not much of a challenge. There was movie room as well where on request movies could be started.

Though the view is very limited, the location of the resort is nice. It is very near to Mahabaleshwar and away from the hustle of the market. Quiet place.

Had checked out Keys resort while staying in Saj. Keys looked grand and had great view but taking in mind the cost factor, Saj was nicely priced at the amenities being provided.

Would definitely recommend a stay at Saj.

This is one of the good resorts in Mahabaleshwar, on main Mahabaleshwar Panchgani road and close to Venna lake and market area.. Food was excellent , so also were rooms.. ambiance is nice . rates are okay .. The main problem here is that of parking ... parking space is not specious and is inconvenient. Well , apart from this small inconvenience , I recammend this resort

I spent a quality time here. It really made my trip wonderful. It’s a beautiful and well-maintained property. The best part is the quality of food. It was very tasty. Even my 19 months old daughter liked it :-). They also give you the option of Jain (w/o garlic etc.) food with the same menu. Children Park was there. It was very clean and well-maintained. They also show movies, puppet show, magical shows etc. The staff was very friendly. They have enough parking space. They have Spa and Gym facilities also. Overall, I am very much satisfied with the amount I spent to book this hotel.

I'd say staying at Saj was a delightful experience. Great food, comfortable stay. It was Wifey's first b'day after we got married, hence the place had to be special. We had a 2 day 3 night plan.

I was shooting for Keys and Saj, but some how Keys had no rooms available for my dates. Plus, Keys is like right in the middle of Mahaby town, so might feel busy during the day. +1 for Saj!

So the reviews about the food, proximity to tourist spots and reasonable distance from the City were the things that made be go for Saj.

I had booked for a Luxury Ac Room, but they offered me an upgrade to Cottages Ac. I checked the cottages, definitely bigger and better that the Luxury Ac Room (who doesn't like a spacious hotel room) at no additional cost. So went ahead with the Cottage.

Food, food and food (I am a non-vegetarian), but believe me, the all veg food at Saj was really special. Next time when going to Saj the reason would be just for the food!

Saj is very strategically located in Mahaby, all the major tourist attractions are fairly close by.

- The staff tries there best to be courteous!
- Next time i visit Saj, I am going to ask for there chef and salute him/her (the food is indeed that good). Now don't have unrealistic expectations, not every dish could be god made, but you win some and you loose some.
- Avoid if you do not have your own means of transportation.

Overall we were completely satisfied with the trip! Yeah it was slightly expensive but I got the worth of what I spent for.

Suggestions to management:
- Breakfast could have been better. (I am an egg person, when I am not at Home, breakfast=egg for me, hence the nitpicking!) But I respect your vegetarian ethos.

You guys have a great thing going! Keep up the good work!

Room Tip: - Insist on checking your room before getting it on your name - Opt out of a room, if you have the...
