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.
