The location of Brightland resort is very nice. The food is another usp of this hotel with multiple dining options. Enjoyed the veg restaurant and the italian fine dining. The spa is also very nice with some good therapies. While we did not take any ayurvedic consultations as were available there but did enjoy four hand massages.
