Saj Resort Mahabaleshwar – A Great Way To Rock In The Cradle Of Mother Nature!

Travelling is one of the major aspects of any photographer’s life, and the same rule applies to my life as well. Hey everyone! I hope you are all doing fine. This is your blogger cum photographer, Siddharth Kaushik, and this time I am going to share few things about my stay in Mahabaleshwar. Mahabaleshwar is a city located in the Satara District of Maharashtra. From the beautiful Mapro Garden to the enchanting Venna Lake, I captured every single beauty of this city in my DSLR.

I would definitely admit that my stay in the Saj Resort played a pivotal role in making my Mahabaleshwar trip a successful one. Without the comforts of Saj resort Mahabaleshwar, it would have been really difficult to experience the beauty around it. From the moment I checked into this 4-star resort’s room, I felt an amazing sense of relaxation and absolute peace. Located in the serene environments of Metgutad Village, this resort can really impress you with its excellent services.

Saj Resort Mahabaleshwar: Impressing You with Excellent services!

Spread across a huge area of 5 acres I believe, this resort is a perfect way to spend few days in the cradle of Mother Nature. No doubt, being a photographer I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in this resort, because of its natural surroundings. The shutter of my camera never came to halt, and I was really excited about the whole thing. From the Pune airport, the resort is around 123 Kms, but the manager of the resort was really helping in guiding me over the phone, about how to reach saj resort.

Since I am totally into adventurous activities like trekking, paragliding, and bungee jumping, for this reason I never missed an opportunity to get my adrenaline level rushing through the brain. The adventure spot was quite close to the Saj resort Mahabaleshwar, and therefore it was quite convenient for me to return even after the sunset.

When we talk about adventure sports there are plenty of things to do in Manali. The most prominent being river, rafting, hiking and mountain biking! I have already gathered a lot of information on all the three activities so that I am well prepared when I reach Manali.

In case of water rafting I have options of White water rafting at Siyal which is priced at just Rs 500/- .Rafting at Vyas river on Mall road is also very famous. It has multiple timings but I have read that it is a little expensive.

I have also short listed the hiking adventures at Solang Valley. The final thing on my list of things to do in Manali is mountain biking. My best buddy has suggested that I go to Ram Bagh or old Manali for the purpose.

A Wonderful Stay in Hotel Nahar Niligris Ooty: Exotic Views and Great Amenities!

While planning my trip to the Nilgiri Hills, I also decided to stay somewhere which was located amidst good views. I was particularly looking for a place or a hotel that would be close to the blue mountains and had gone through numerous sites looking for the same. As I was browsing through the list, I came across hotels that were a bit expensive for my budget or some were located far away from the Nilgiris.

Then I came across this hotel named Hotel Nahar Nilgiris, Ooty that surprisingly was offering me all the services I needed at a very affordable price. Hence, I finally narrowed down to this hotel and booked it for my trip to the Nilgiris.

The place was just 2 km away from the station at Ooty and was a bit far from the Airport. But the beautiful location amongst this valley did not let me feel a bit of tiredness.

As I arrived at the hotel, I was welcomed very warmly and immediately escorted to my room. I was stunned to see how beautifully the rooms were decorated and cleaned. The hotel provided the perfect ambiance for me to relax and enjoy my stay amidst the beautiful landscape.
