Our speciality

SaffronStays 9 Palms is a quiet and charming villa set in a sprawling 6-acre estate with 5 spacious bedrooms. With a private pool and landscaped gardens, just fifteen minutes away from the Mandwa jetty, it is the ideal getaway for a relaxing family time-out.

Detailed Description

With a lovingly curated and eclectic decor inside; six acres of lush green lawns and gardens, and a private swimming pool outside, SaffronStays 9 Palms, is a perfect country home. We know you will fall in love with. The five spacious, each with its own character, encircle a sprawling living room that invites you to spend time together, and is rounded off with a kitchen with an in-house chef.

All bedrooms and the living room are air-conditioned. All bedrooms have a bathroom ensuite, except one, which has access to a powder room outside the bedroom. Have your food on the rustic wooden dining table inside or in one of the three pergolas outside, on the lawns. The villa has plenty of board and indoor games, for you to disconnect from the rush and reconnect with family. Or take a walk inside the home, taking in the beautiful, and often exotic artefacts that make this house a home. In the evening, laze around the pool, to catch a stunning view of the sky that a city seldom permits.

A Peaceful property where we felt at home away from home. The food was awesome (special mention - Basant's hospitality & Cooking) The staff was courteous. Ample of space inside and outside for the kids, they enjoyed the pool. Can enjoy birds chirping..star gazing at night. The house dog, Tommy was fun, the kids enjoyed his company....

Incredible property, tastefully done and supported by a very courteous staff. Great stay for a family vacation of 10 or more, provided all you want to do is lounge around the house and the pool. Beaches in the near by vicinity aren't great....

9 Palms is a very spacious Villa with extremely well manicured surrounds . The Villa looked outwards with all rooms facing the green lawns . I preferred the room with a poster bed and a jhula as it added a very vintage character to the space . The central space was apt for gathering around ,playing board games or just generally having a chat . The approach was comfortable as saffronstays got us in touch with a trusted local rickshaw guy .The staff were very welcoming and helped us settle in for our mini vacay. The food was to die for and Basant, the cook ,deserves a special mention . The facilities were well maintained and hygienic. I look forward to making another visit to 9 Palms and recommend it highly to all reading this ....

The stay was amazing! the property, care takers were excellent. The villa, pool, surrounding areas are very well maintained. Would definitely recommend as a must visit. however, below are the few areas of concerns: 1. Care takers number, required details which were asked for from the host were not provided post multiple followups over email, text messages and calls as well. 2. Directions to the venue need to be more precise. Overall, it was a good experience! ...

The Villa is a really beautifully designed place, good ambience and excellent hygene levels. It is also well maintained. Only drawback is availability of Food at short notice. although A/C microwave and refrigerator was provided, they were not working most of the time possibly due to power fluctuation. All in all, this is a excellent place to visit with your family and we have a memorable time. ...

Hi. I just came back yesterday from here. Celebrated my Birthday during the weekend. The house is absolutely fantastic. We went WOW as soon as we entered and were in the pool within 15 mins. The caretaker Naseem was very polite and helpful. Ask for the person who can provide you home cooked meals. It was very tasty & not expensive. Cons: 1] Cooking wasnt allowed in the premises [We wanted to do BBQ in the night] 2] Out of the 4 huge rooms 2 didnt have AC's, but it was fine with us since we used only 2 rooms and 8 of us easily slept in one room [Yes !! it was that huge] but incase if there were more that would be a problem. 3] They charged for minimum 13 people. So if there are less people you still end up paying for 13 people. Since originally we were suppose to be 14 people but ended up only with 10 + 1 kid. But we still had to pay the whole amount. They should make it per person or the no. of rooms used kinda thing. But its not a deal breaker because the villa is worth a weekend stay with family & friends. Thankyou Saffron Stays for lovely & memorable birthday weekend !!!! :) Manoj Mathew. ...
