1. SaffronStays Foresta By The Lake, Kamshet

This place is a sensory overload. Should you take a barefoot walk on the lawn? Should you head straight to the lake? How about going to the study room for some quiet reading time? Or a noisy banter in the games room? A game of tennis? Shall we work from the glasshouse living room? But the pool beckons….
Any photo you upload on your social media from this home will fill your inboxes with queries. All you have to do is work up an appetite at this spacious resort-like villa, enjoy the exceptional cooking skills of Manisha didi and keep the queries for later. Her haath ka khaana will ensure you try out every item from the buffet. From the rocket leaves salad with crunchy candied walnuts to the deconstructed tacos, garlic bread which is a delicacy by itself, minestrone soup, vada pav, makai ka halwa, fruit custard to everyday food items like aloo methi, lachcha paratha, kurkuri bhindi and aloo, dal tadka, rajma among several other dishes – you can’t choose one item over the other. In this battle of tastebuds, there’s no competition; and yet, everyone wins!
