Reviewed August 11, 2014

I was planning a weekend with my wife and son for a long time in june. I wanted it to be very peaceful and as the school was starting i wanted to go out with family as i had not spent ME time with wife and son. After looking over at least 100 resorts and spending over 2 days pondering , i came across the website of Brightland Resort. I got a feeling that this is the place that i should go to.
The big question was would i get a reservation last minute. Somehow i got the Mumbai number and got in touch with Ms. Sneha Shettigar, who was in head of reservations. Sneha did tell me that it was difficult at the last minute but she promised to check and get back. I was not expecting a call, but she did call , and she told me that Mr. Shrremanto would connect from Brightland resort , Mahabhaleshwar. Sneha was very helpful and i was constantly in touch with shreemanto .

I took the bus and landed the next morning at the resort. I was greeted by Shreemanto, Reservations and Ms. Bharti, Guest relations. This was all like a chance that i was talking, because most of the time, what is shown on the website and the realities is all different and heart breaking. From the time i landed till i left was the most beautiful and peaceful experience which i will cherish always.
A resort so well planned with keeping in mind needs of all age groups was amazing.
an Elevator, in a not a usual area, so senior citizens don't need to climb the stairs after a hearty meal, is an example. 5 restaurants( chinese , ittalian), a Bar , a Pub, a Pool etc and many other things . They had a in house store for pool outfits etc.
Restaurants a little pricy but Overall a very nice and peaceful experience. I took the Duplex room which was very nice , except the bathroom was a little too compact.

Special mention of Ms. Bharti and Mr. Shreemanto who made this trip wonderful.
Thanks and keep it up.

It is a nice place in mahabaleshwar, where anyways you don’t have any luxury properties (especially for non-vegetarians). Rooms are decent, service is good. Food is also nice especially breakfast spread.
the only thing that I would highlight is that probably the price they charge is quite more than what this place otherwise should deserve.
Location is awesome, my strong suggestion would be to opt for a valley facing room. Open BAR, swing pool etc are neatly maintained. Restaurant is quite nice. The approach to the resort is a bit hazy. We got choke while our way up. Road is just to narrow to let cross two mid-size vehicles.
Overall all a good place if you are not one of those who would always want to maximize value (return on investment).

Room Tip: Choose valley facing room

This was our second visit to this lovely resort. It's a huge property and without doubt one of the best in mahableshwar. We stayed at the maple room...the room is big with a large bed and a lovely sit out. The bathroom is pretty big too and has a open to sky bath tub. The maple rooms are relatively new and one of the best in the resort. Food at the olive was good with a variety of veg and non veg items. The staff are courteous and helpful. We loved sitting on the deck at the pavillon. The activity centre has carrom ,table tennis to keep one busy. The prana spa is one of the best resort spas I have experienced...the ambience,the service is fantastic. Also bought a few products from the spa shop. Overall highly recommended. An excellent monsoon relaxing destination.

Room Tip: Maple rooms are spacious and good. Upper poolside are good too. They offer a better view of the hill...

This was my second stay in Brightland. Last year I went with my wife and really liked the resort. So I decided to go back this monsoon with my parents and sister. Booking a super duplex cottage through their Mumbai office was smooth. We reached the resort around 4:30 pm and the check-in was super fast. The room was stunning with a superb view of the valley. Throughout our two days stay, the service was prompt and efficient. We had taken the AP plan and all the 3 meals served in the Olive Garden restaurant were great. The breakfast menu were extra ordinary. The resort is in such a beautiful location that one wouldn't want to go out much. Heavenly rains combined with excellent service of Brightland made out two days trip really memorable. I have already booked a couple room for me and my wife on 15th Aug weekend...and looking forward to it. Hope the monsoon lasts till then :-)
Keep it up Brightland...

This Resort is spread over a huge area in Mahabaleshwar, certainly a good resort if you plan for friends/family get together. This encompasses enough amenities within, to go elsewhere in Mahabaleshwar. Costlier but worth if you succeed in booking the room with hill view. Staff is not very great. Restaurants within are very good, advisable is to eat within this resort than elsewhere in the city which offers least options. There were many friends group that had come over, playing music on their balconies(duplex rooms \ apartments) and having gala time. So if you are looking for best time in Mahabaleshwar (than to be fooled on monkey/table/suicide points) you know where to head to.

Room Tip: Duplex Room is an awesome choice for gang of friends/family.

We had a good experience except the initial hassle of being allotted the right room. Food was good but the service was little slow. However, on the whole a decent experience provided you are not expecting too much from the facility

Room Tip: Facing the Valley
