About the Home

  • Travelling back in time and connecting to one’s roots have one thing in common: they help us savour every moment around us. At SaffronStays Asanji Wadi, a 3-bedroom private villa with a plunge pool in Alibaug, experience the art of slow living.
  • With modern amenities, one of the three bedrooms is on the ground level with an ensuite bathroom making it perfect for senior citizens. The other two bedrooms, with ensuite bathrooms, are on the first level. 
  • This nature retreat in Alibaug has a plunge pool perfect for a quick dip.
  • Find a piece of sleepy Bhuj at this villa near Mandwa Jetty, which is ideal for a family retreat. Get a taste of being at an ancestral home in Gujarat where every corner is steeped in history.
  • A beautiful staircase sourced from the ancestral home acts as the fulcrum of this villa. Each of its stairs has alphabets that complete the homeowner’s grandfather’s name. 
  • Many items from the Bhuj home have been converted into something of utility. Old windows are now kitchen cabinets, old grills have been used to build skylights, two other grills have doubled up as a stand for the dining table and the coffee table was originally a cupboard. 
  • Various family portraits and paintings adorn the home given the family’s inclination towards art. While a copy of Italian artist Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio’s Jesus Christ artwork hangs in the living room, paintings by the homeowners’ daughter and other artists grace the other spaces.
  • The estate is dotted with several fruit trees and vegetable plantations including mango, coconut, banana, starfruit, chikoo, guava, kaffir lime, galangal, brinjal, bitter gourd, snake gourd, and jamun among others.
  • The Table tennis set up, pachisi board, cornhole board, darts, battery-powered monopoly, and hula hoop will ensure you keep your phones aside and bond over games with your family.

    A nice quaint bungalow with lot of architectural character. The housekeeping staff were very courteous and welcoming. It was nice to see cleanliness being maintained and not just advertised.

    Saffron stays Asanji Wadi is a unique experience. It takes one back in time. An experience of a lifetime especially in these times of the pandemic. The staff is cordial,polite and helpful. A highly recommended place for some time of solitude and solace with family.

    Asanji Villa is very homely and the staff is really lovely ... food is homely but yummy. However the property is very old - bathrooms are very old fashioned with no hand shower. Pool was not really a pool but a very dirty looking thing that was not even the size of a jacuzzi - should not be called a pool. Internet was horrible - need better connectivity for sure. Liked the table tennis table and games. Overall was comfortable but definitely not worth the price!!!
