    House is as beautiful, if not more, than what the pictures promise. Nestled on a hillside away from the crowd, to enjoy the serene beauty of the hill station. Compliments to the home owners. Food was delicious, learnt great tips to make a scrumptious Biryani from Chef Ranjit Singh. Staff was warm, cooperative and professional. Thank you Anita maushi, Rahul and Mahesh. Overall wonderful experience.

    The stay at aatman was very relaxing. The staff was very welcoming as well as helpful, and the food by their chef was mesmerising. The only problem that we came across was with our network signals and their weak internet connection; other than this our stay was amazing.

    Lovely place with massive “repeat value” Great getaway during the pandemic as this place is nicely secluded away from the crowds and noise. Staff - Shantaram, Ranjeet and Anita - perfect combination that ensures the stay is very comfortable with smallest to biggest requirements being well taken care of.

    Kshitij Shah and his family who visited our sojourn at Mahabaleshwar were great guests to host. They were all friendly and courteous to the staff and kept the place neat and tidy. They followed the house policies. Would love to host them again.

    Great property. Very well maintained. Good food. Lot of open space. Only issue is too much negotiation required for small things like any food item or fruit to be added which is really petty as compared to what the meal charges are. And it's tough to make online payment at the property so that also needs to be looked into.

    SaffronStays Care Team

    Sundeep and his group were excellent guests to host. They enjoyed themselves and the property. They were courteous to the staff and kept the place neat and tidy.

    Had a wonderful stay at Aatman, the property is fantastic with green surroundings and serene silence. The care taker Mr shantaram along with his team was prompt to attend to all our requests and made sure the stay was comfortable. The cook and his team ensured we got homely food with all requests accommodated. The property is clean and well maintained. Kids also enjoyed the company of dogs. In all a wonderful experience and would love to visit next time soon.

    We had a fantastic stay at Aatman. The property is 10 mins away from the Mahabaleshwar market in a secluded yet cosy location. The villa is beautifully done up with a huge garden offering the best sunset views. Coming to the staff, Shantaram, Ranjeet & Anita Tai were extremely polite, courteous and catered to our each and every need. The food is brilliant especially chinese cuisine which is simply sumptuous. They also have a dog called Tipu who is extremely playful and friendly. The villa was extremely clean and very well maintained. Our entire family had an extremely memorable stay and we look forward to coming back and staying at Aatman again on our next trip to Mahabaleshwar.

    This is a special time of the year for us, Xmas, New year & 2 birthdays in the family & we love to spend this time with friends in ambient locations....Aatman in Mahabaleshwar was exactly what we were looking for to enjoy this time of the year. The Villa is huge, spacious, well maintained & the highlight is really the huge open lawn spread out on the backdrop of amazing sunsets.... The staff followed all Covid protocols & the service was outstanding. Special call out to Shantaram, who took every effort to meet our asks...never heard him say no. Must mention, that this place is a foodie’s delight. The cook Ranjeet is seriously good at his art. The barbecue with bonfire under a moonlit sky is an experience to soak! Overall we had a great time with family & friend & wish to thank Team Saffron Stays & Team Aatman for this experience.

    SaffronStays Care Team

    Mr. Pradiito Dey and his group were very particular about the hygiene and other protocols for COVID-19. We tried our best to fulfil his requirements. Glad they were satisfied and enjoyed their stay at Aatman. Wishing him a happy and healthy New Year and would love to host him again.

    5 stars are too less to describe the experience of staying at this beautiful gem of a villa. Shantaram the caretaker, truly made our stay a memorable one. He was super accommodating to all our needs and the attention to detail from sanitisation, everyday cleaning everything was spic and span. We’ve stayed at plenty serviced apartments/ villas before but this place is the perfect blend of the service of a luxury hotel yet with the comfort of a cozy home! Lastly the food, Anita tai & Ranjeet cooked up the yummiest meals for us everyday. Thank you to all of you’ll for making our stay super safe and comfortable!

    SaffronStays Care Team

    Simran Gandhi and her group were an adorable lot of guests who were friendly, fun loving and enjoyed themselves at Aatman. They were affectionate towards the staff and kept the place neat and clean. Would love to host and welcome them at Aatman!

    The villa is beautiful, including the outdoor and the indoor areas. Such a well thought out planned property and everything is taken care to the T. The caretaker, Shantaram is exceptionality hospitable and warm and has made our stay comfortable at the villa in both our visits. We are so in love with the ambience, food and the hospitality and I recommend this to each and every person if you need a getaway from busy city life and want an opportunity to reconnect with nature. The meals are very well cooked and each and every need is taken care of by the team. I have stayed at several home stays but this is the best by far in terms of everything you look for especially the caretaker Shantaram.

    SaffronStays Care Team

    We were very happy to host Shashank, this time with his family, once again in a span of 1 month! As was our experience last time Shashank and his family kept the property neat and tidy and all of them were very courteous to the staff. Happy to host Shashank and his lovely group whenever he wants to visit us again. Cheers...

    A gem in Mahabaleshwar - on the road to Mahad - 10 minutes from the market by car. Appears to be newly renovated with modern bathrooms, large garden and open spaces all around. The staff was extremely enthusiastic and responsive to all our needs. The food was a revelation. Highly recommended.
