    Amrai - is a wonderful property and even nicer is the experience from the entire team at the property. They are so warm and friendly. The yummy food cooked by the cooking staff is truly the highlight. They are so infant friendly that they accommodated all my wife’s request on food for our twins. The property is massive and most of the veggies are grown within, which they serve you. The walk through the property shows you how various fruits and vegetables are grown. The gardener even gave us a tour of the nursery which the kids absolutely loved. In the evening, you can take your tea at the gazebo and gaze at the sunset. The pool was well maintained and WiFi around the property was strong. The owners also have furnished the property really well with a Smart TV which helped us unwind and stream so content as well in the evening. Weather at Pawna is amazing in the rains and the view from the terrace balcony is just wonderful. Special mention for the Caretaker Dinesh in making our stay special.

    Amrai.... A perfect hidden gem surrounded by six acres of lush green fields and it stands mighty just above the peaceful pawna lake!!! The location itself is so much soothing and peaceful and is much much away from the concrete world. The passion with which the home is built and the vision to provide the best to the guests by the owners is highly commendable ⭐⭐⭐ The hygiene in these trying times, the hospitality, the warmth that the staff greets you with and the last but not the least.... The Food.... steals the show! Be it bonding with the family, re union of friends or just a rejuvenating holiday, the stay here is worth every single second. You can take a tour on your personal buggy to the soothing organic farms that grows a variety of organic fruits and vegetables, sighting a host of flora and fauna or the grand gazeebo that opens up to the lake with your cheese and wine 🍷.... Memories made beautiful ❤️❤️❤️ The staff adds up to the party and the warmth with which the whole team treats you, with special mention to Mr. Dinesh who is the caretaker, does try and make every passing moment a memorable experience to come back again...... ⭐⭐⭐ The owner's does make sure that each and every guest does not feel less then an owner itself by the means of readily available best of facilities, zero compromises on quality of the property and a warm hospitality.... Home away from home ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐.... Amrai was worth all the wait.... Must on a bucket list once atleast in every six months to.... Celebrate Life..... Huge appreciation on maintaining such a lovely home and making it available for us to cherish all the memories..... Keep going... ❤️❤️❤️

    The management, meals and the entire experience was really nice...slightly disappointed by the per the pictures, it seemed that the river was a stones throw away, but in reality, it was much further. Infact, from inside the bungalow, you could hardly see the river.

    A beautiful property. We were a group of 5 families who had booked it for 2 nights. Loved the whole experience. Kids loved to run around and the parents enjoyed a cool time by the pool. The property is well maintained, the green house and the trees around are a treat to the eyes. The food served each time was out of the world. Would definetly recommend this property to anyone.

    The property was brilliant and the staff was extremely helpful and polite. The home made meals were delicious and hygienic ! A must recommended. Negative - The support by Saffron was pathetic. It took around 30 calls from 9 am to 9.45 am during checkout for Ms Pinky to revert with assistance
