About the Home

  • “Let the sea set you free…”, a philosophy that best describes SaffronStays Athaang is situated right on the ever-serene Konkan coast and is a 6-hour drive amidst the Sahyadri ranges from Pune, Alibaug and Mumbai.
  • Dotted by the scenic Sahyadri ranges and bordered by the Konkan Coast, this home, thoughtfully spread across a 7-acre plot, overlooks the vast expanse of the Arabian Sea and is ideal for a family holiday, a couples getaway or large groups looking for a reunion or a corporate offsite.
  • As you walk into this estate, structures roofed by Mangalore tiles of crimson, traditional pillars and the sea breeze that evokes a sense of belongingness will woo your heart within the first 15 seconds (it’s a challenge).
  • A standalone cottage, SaffronStays Athaang (Megh) (Megh meaning ‘clouds’) with its own garden, welcomes you. This cottage comprises 4 bedrooms (each with an ensuite bathroom and 2 more bedrooms in another cottage) and a common patio for some evening chai and gupshup.
  • Beside this cottage, is another cottage that consists of 6 bedrooms (each with an ensuite bathroom). 2 out of these 6 bedrooms offer the garden view and are a part of SaffronStays Athaang (Megh). The other 4 bedrooms (2 on the ground level and 2 interconnected rooms on the first level), that we lovingly call SaffronStays Athaang (Trishna), have massive common balconies that open up to breathtaking views of the sea and the opposite shore.
  • The front yard that lines SaffronStays Athaang (Megh) and SaffronStays Athaang (Trishna) extends further into a ‘viewing deck’ that is just the perfect spot to ‘seas the day’ or indulge in some yoga, meditation or a workout. The sea view from here will win your heart over and over again and this is definitely going to be your most favorite spot!
  • Right beside the ‘viewing deck’ is an alfresco sitting area which again, can be your ultimate evening chai spot. A change of space for every meal? Possible! That too, in style.
  • The ‘Athaang Restaurant’ is just next door where you can relish a plethora of Konkani dishes, cooked by the people of Dapoli using locally sourced ingredients, fresh fish and fiery spices along with Chinese and Continental.

    Stay was very good. Staff took good care. Processes are too stringent though, the local management should have more flexibility. Also a-la carte menu instead of an inflexible food package would be useful

    My husband and I had an absolutely wonderful stay here. The location of Athaang is incredibly good, I think this place it’s a treasure of Dapoli and has the BEST VIEW EVER. it is so very peaceful and tranquil out here. We went there to destress and the outcome was even better than what we expected.. The mornings here are so beautiful, but the sunsets are just extraordinary.. The hotel is strategically located and you can sit out on their benches overlooking the ocean and enjoy the night sky and stars… The kitchen and the restaurant and the service is one of the best things at Athaang after the view. The Pomfret and the prawns were really fresh and we loved the bhakri, along with the dal and and other food which was so tasty wholesome and homely… the rooms are clean well maintained and to be honest we only went in to sleep because the property is just beautiful! Thank you saffron stays and staff at Athaang for bringing me peace. Can’t wait to return

    We had a amazing experience at this lovely villa. The food here is delicious and worth mentioning. Kudos to the chef! We had traditional Konkani dishes and Mr. Pranay who works in their restaurant, provided great service. Mr. Anup, the manager, ensured that we have a pleasant experience and upgraded us to the sea facing room on discovering air conditioning issues with our original room. The view from which was beautiful. Overall, a great option for a weekend getaway!

    More amenities needs to be provided. Garden view rooms are not worth of the cost that is charged. There is no proper view from room.
