“A great get-away.”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

Great place for a quiet & peaceful get-away from city life. Rooms were spacious and clean. The swimming pool (which nobody used while we were there due to the cold weather) looked very tempting; an indoor games room assures that you keep active. Service is good for the most part. Staff are willing to go that extra mile to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Food was delicious with a varied menu. Breakfast was the best meal of the day-a vast choice on the menu- we just loved it. The overall environment was very conducive to comfort and had a feel-good factor about it. Only drawback is its size as & we missed long walks inside the resort as we had experienced in other hillstations before.

We travelled to Saj (2 nights) as two couples, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The resort has a fair number of activities, and these were truly to our liking. We played TT, foosball, pool; did a fair bit of drinking and dancing on the floor, got massages done and met fellow travelers, with who we enjoyed a housing night. The USP of the resort is its location, giving a lovely view and the mix of crowd which it enjoys. The rooms were decent and cozy. The resort also covered meals, which was something which we really enjoyed. It seems that the place is owned by a Gujarati/Marwari, because the cuisine was heavily influenced by the two places. Again, we found the same to our liking, and it worked out well for us.

All in all, a very good resort with value for money written all over it.

We spent our new years at Saj Resorts and we enjoyed ourselves. One thing that we would like to highlight is that all the staff was very cordial and nice. The rooms were spacious and very clean and we also enjoyed the specific room dedicated to show movies. There are also quite a lot of places to visit around Saj. We particularly enjoyed the Mapro and Mala outlets. A few things of things:

• Make sure that if you are travelling here, that you have your own vehicle. We came here by cab and felt handicapped, since it’s impossible to walk on the narrow roads outside bustling with traffic, and cabs charge ridiculous amounts even for short rides.

• The buffet spread was lavish and the food was tasty. However, we felt that quite a few dishes could have been done with lesser oil.

• A lot of work had gone around the New Year bash and we could see guests having the time of their lives. However, as a couple who do not primarily listen to Bollywood music, we did not enjoy ourselves as much and left early. We would have liked it if the party had been tailored to a more diverse audience.

• Room service could have been better. Although I had called housekeeping, had to wait for quite some time and also follow-up, to ensure that our room was cleaned.

• Our snacks could have been more prompt. At around 4, we ordered for a plate of pakodas and 2 coffee’s. This took approximately an hour to reach us.

• Near the playground, we saw a dog that was sleeping in a tiny enclosure. The enclosure was so small that the dog’s head was sticking out and it was obviously very uncomfortable. Being avid animal lovers, this made us very sad, and the dog was also not responding to our calls. Request you to please take good care of the dog, if you are unable to, kindly give it up for adoption.

This was the first visit to Mahabaleshwar as a family trip.

Picked up Saj from trip advisor but were skeptical as a good or bad property can make or break the visit.

We were overwhelmed by the experience :
- friendly and warm staff
- good vegetarian/jain food
- Clean ambiance/lighting etc
- Spa is an added attraction
- Daily evening events during weekends/Season time adds new activity to your trip

Would certainly recommend Saj to vegetarians planning to stay few days at mahableswar

Room Tip: Cottages look better than luxury rooms

I was looking for a relaxed holiday with family and my decision to choose Saj resort for this year end excursion proved to be just right.

It is a very well maintained property, spacious and ample activities at the resort. I loved Gujarati dishes the most and kitchen menu has great spread. Staff was very courteous and I really liked the overall service at the resort with hassle free check in and check out service.

I was not interested visiting various points in Mahabaleshwar, you would find ample in house activities to keep yourselves entertained. There's a movie hall, spa, swimming pool, evening activities, separate kids playing area at the resort which would help in keeping kids engaged.

I would also appreciate help extended by reservation desk staff who helped me move my schedule to visit resort by a day due to personal exigency, would surely love to return at this resort once again next year.

Would surely like to visit with family once again.
