“Five Star Experience Highly reccomended”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

I spent 4 days this April in Mahableshwar 24th - 27th year 2014. The management deserves a pat in the back for doing a superb job with administration and overall care of the property.The food needs a special mention. I am a hard core non vegetarian but i loved the vegetarian fare at their Thali Restaurant Amantran, and the breakfast was amazing at The Cafe.The staff is ever smiling and willing to assist. The rooms were well mantained and the rooms were airy and clean.
I reccomend it to one and all and thank Mr.Rikhav the GM and Mr.Rohit the Fanf B Manager and also over all in charge of the place for a job well done. 3 cheers gentlemen.

Room Tip: I stayed in the room across the green house and i think i liked the location as its accessible to al...

We had gone on weekend to Saj resort and had a great time. Being a non vegetarian lover , this was my first experience in Vegetarian resort. Package offered included Gujarati lunch , World cuisine dinner and simple Breakfast.Location of resort is between Mahabaleshwar town and Panchgani town. Food was fresh , hygienic and tasty.

I would suggest following three points which are just suggestions.
1.You can add a drop facility at some major points or mahabaleshwar bazaar at some specific timings.
2.In dinner labelled as World cuisine , focus was more on chinese. These days there is a shift away from chinese and more to italian and other cuisines.
3.Package included lunch , dinner and breakfast. You can also include evening tea. Sunset view from your cafe was very good. Evening snacks were nicely prepared.

Will visit the resort after monsoons!!!

The Location is good on Panchgani Mahableshwar Road. Good space for car park. The staff is courteous and nice. Rooms were good with natural light and air. Other facilities like swimming pool, spa, sports room and gym looked good though i did not use them. In all it was good value for the money they charged with all basic amenities and cleanliness was appreciated. Food in the AP was a bit of an issue. Even though the arrangement was fine and food test was also fine one can get bored eating same type of food if you were to stay for more than two days. It would be good to have options. The dinner arrangement was at the lawn where the DJ was playing loud music I had no other option to have a quite dinner. Other than this scope of improvement its was a positive experience.

Room Tip: Luxury rooms with a balcony on the first floor are the best. Good view, quite and with your own priv...

I had recently stayed at this hotel for 3 nights with my wife and 3 Yr son and found this an excellent place to stay. My review on various parameters below -
1) Location: This resort is located midway between Mahabaleshwar and Panchgani hence all the places of interest (various points, Venna lake, Mapro Factory, etc) are located within a convenient radius of 6-7 KMs max. Having my personal car, this was very convenient as I could do the sight seeing at my own pace and convenience.
2) Room Quality: I had booked a cottage and it was very nice and spacious. It also had a small sit-out with a swing, which we liked. Only that it does not have a bath-tub which would have been a nice touch to an otherwise great room.
3) Service: Everybody is very courteous and care for your comfort.
4) Food: Only expression is "Wow". We were spoilt for choice and the food was very tasty. Options range from Continental, South Indian, Chinese, Italian, Gujarati and Punjabi.
5) Spa: We had a relaxing Ayurvedic massage and it was done very well. They have other types also including Swedish, hot stone, etc.
6) Others: We also enjoyed the other amenities including Swimming Pool, Sports (Carrom, TT, Pool, Badminton, etc) and also the Children Play area that my son enjoyed a lot.

Overall had a very nice experience and it is value for money.

Room Tip: Cottage rooms have a small sit-out with a swing, which is a nice touch. Otherwise all the rooms seem...

Had Been to Saj Resort with entire Family. It was a reunion.. To start with, the location is just like 4 kms before Mahableshwar with less traffic and noise. The food was Exceptional, tasted well and also the service attended by the staff was pretty good during food hours. The Resort is well maintained and pretty clean. The only issue i found was the slope which leads to the reception... Its not adivsable to take your car over there, can cause clutch issues and some wheel spin of tyres..

Room Tip: All the rooms are good.

1. We had visited here during Holi Festival. Hotel was fully occupied. But management managed the crowd decently.

2. This was our second visit here. Earlier, there were many Cestrum Nocturnum (Raat Raani) plants that gave 24 hours pleasant atmosphere. Now, all these plants have been cut brutally. Now we get only smell of air freshners.

3. Food was Good this time too. But may be due to crowd, it was not great as earlier. System of Thali was reduced to buffet in afternoon. Apart from this, in evening at earlier time, they used to arrange for evening snacks, now this is no more.

4. All of the above points are suggestions and not complaints. Despite above, hotel is good.

5. My real complaint for mismanagement is, there were many guests at the time of dinner who were drinking hard liquors & beers along with dinner. We had special image of this resort due to being no liquor and pure veg hotel. It is extremely disturbing to have drunkards beside your table. We had asked floor managers about it, he told that they do not sell it but can not control if guests bring the same from outside.

6. At ground floor, there was construction work going on that disturbed our noon nap many times.

7. Rest All is decent.

Room Tip: It does not make sense in visiting this in big occasion.
