Overall it was decent trip . The Buffer dinners and Luches were yummies . Non veg preparation was best.
The resort need to improve room amenities. The bathrooms require makeover.

Overall good experiance will like to stay again!!!!

Best Experience: The Evening were really thrilling with Dj ,Magic show for kids ,Game of Tambols. Pool side drink is refreshing/

I was pretty apprehensive of the location , since most others are bang in the market.However , we realized that it was a boon, since Matheran is a red soil town and filled with tourists (noisy as always). The walk from the town is max 7 minutes. The big surprise was the facilities, activities and food. The booking people and the sales office at Mumbai somehow underplay this. They do mention these in the passing , "facilities are there", "food is available" , well , the food is lavish and the pool is spanking clean, the recreations are really there and very good, not just on the display board.We booked for a day , but rescheduled everything at our workplace and extended our stay by another day !

Best Experience: My wife is a stickler for clean linen (bed sheets , towels etc). Thus , we land up carrying these unless we are booked into a proper star hotel. You would be aware that vehicles are not allowed in Matheran , thus we landed up carrying all this in our haversack ! It is enough to say that my wife did not use any of our home stuff , the linen these people supplied were crisp and clean.

Worst Experience: Matheran is a non plastic hill resort. Not because of the police or the eco-consciousness of the average Indian tourist , but because of the monkey raj there. You open a packet of anything (even a Pepsi bottle) and your are finished. Even inside the resort , you are not safe !. Carry a local gulel (the Y shaped hand tool) to scare away these creatures !

I enjoyed my trip to Matheran. Place was good. The only drawback at Brightland Resort was the food. It was an amazing experience.

The destination matheran is a place to walk around and Brightlands gives you the opportunity to do just that. It is a short walk from the market. Prices are quite affordable, with amazing food. We stayed in the duplex type of room where kids could bunk up and we setttled down for 4 days. Lots of activities like treasure hunt, dancing and movies during season time. We had a great time and totally relaxed ourselves in the icy cold pool waters.

Best Experience: Best is the horse riding and walking. This and Darjelling is the only place in India with the toy train yet in action. Views are amazing from the train. Takes a lot longer to reach Neral though hence suggest you catch it on your way to Matheran and not the return.

Worst Experience: Monkeys are a terror, any bag swinging in your hands will be snatched out. Be it shoes or chikki, shops which are plenty in the market.
