Dear Ms Kadambari, Warm greetings from all of us at Brightland Resort and Spa, Mahabaleshwar. Firstly, I would like to thank your friends for choosing our resort to celebrate their birthday. If we are aware of the birthday, we would have arranged a complimentary cake for them anyways. This is our usual practice. I know you are feeling upset about not being allowed the opportunity to surprise your friends, but the rules of operating a hotel do not allow us such liberties as you were requesting. We are also not supposed to disclose to you whether any guest by any name is actually staying in our resort. These are strict privacy laws adhered to by all reputed hotels. Unless we have permission from the guests themselves, we cannot send any package or a simple cake with your name to the room, even if you were paying us for that service. We value the privacy of our guests. Please understand and respect our decision in this matter. I would appreciate if you would write to trip advisor to remove this review because your one star has brought down our ranking by one notch. In any case, we look forward to serving you and welcoming you as a guest to our resort in the near future. With warm regards, Vijay Shewakramani

Dear Mr Mody, Firstly thank you for choosing to stay with us. I hope you enjoyed your stay. I am extremely sorry that I did not get a email from trip advisor about the question you have asked and I have just seen your question while responding to the reviews. We had a 10% offer on food for guests who booked on our (the Brightland) website. Taxis are available on call through the front office. We look forward to your next stay with us. Warm regards, Vijay
