Really a well maintained and looked after property. Every part if tastefully done. The property has at least three different restaurants. The small cafe by the pool has the best views. It has a huge open seating overlooking the mountains and jungle.
Prana spa was really good. The place is amazingly done inside. Is the oldest spa in Mahabaleshwar.
There is small gift shop. Has several handcrafted items.
The staff is ample and well trained. Very co-operative.
There was a surprise cake waiting in the fridge when we got to our room. They did make our anniversary a little more special
Over all the owners really have attention to detail and hence is really a well maintained and well staffed property.

It was an impromptu plan as my wife and I decided to visit mahabaleshwar for new year. The first resort that came to mind was Brightland since we had stayed here 2 times before and was praying that we get avalability which we did.
Special mention and thanks to Ms Bharati at the reception who had attended our enquiry and confidently told us to visit and accomodation will be done. The gesture was just awesome on her part.
We stayed in our usual 'Lavender Deluxe' room and loved every bit of it.
The food and ambience created was lovely and the very welcoming staff made the atmosphere warmer.
What I noticed is they didn't over crowd to make money (my biggest nightmare for 31st night) but rather focussed on quality and service.
The morning buffet was brilliant and we congratulated the chef Mr. Abhijeet for it.
Also had a chance to catchup with Mr. Vijay - the owner, who was downright humble and courteous. I had reported an incident to whom where a guest had asked money from me for sitting on a chair on his table (poor guy spent too much I guess) for which Mr. Vijay assured me he will take corrective action.
The DJ was a let down but nevertheless the other things made up for it and can be forgotten.
Thanks again for having us, hope to see you soon

This was though the first time we had been to Brightland but it has been a very comfortable and a luxurious stay as well.

With a world class amenities offered in the Orchid room and tranquillity at its best, brightland also has more to offer.

Food was excellent and you can also try some sumptuous sindhi breakfast here (only if its on the menu of the day for breakfast).

We were also lucky to catch a glimpse of the owner Mr Vijay Sewakaramani, a true gentleman, who also has nice collection of books in the library.

Ms Bharati Chandiramani - special thanks to you for making our stay unique and convenient...:)

PRANA SPA - good products and the spa was good.

Cheers

Overall, we had a very nice stay and we look forward to come to Brightland in future..:)
