    Excellent service by staff. Very good food. Rooms can do with some renovation especially with respect to ACs which are very old models and keep tripping. The steps leading into dining room are very tricky and difficult for senior citizens. Please have a look at it.

    Our experience during the stay was exceptional - right from the tranquil location, the property layout as well as the hospitality and service. Mr. Deepak and his team left no stone unturned in their service and promptly catered to our needs and requirements. The food was homely and delicious and the food prepared for the kids was also as per their requirement. Unlike other properties, there had been no need to remind any staff member again for any request. All was done duly on time to our satisfaction. There are no complaints and we surely look forward to revisiting this property in the future.

    My family and I stayed at the property for a few days and were absolutely blown away by the natural beauty that the property is nestled in. The villas are very well appointed and speak great volumes of the refined taste with which they were designed and built. The staff were knowledgeable and eager to please. They took wonderful care of us and pampered us with incredible delicacies. The pool and the tennis court along with the games room are an absolute bliss for those travelling with children. Can’t wait to revisit this slice of heaven. Best, Manan

    Foresta by the Lake is simply superb! The location is amazing.. the greenery is astounding. We loved the trek to the lake and the picnic near the lake. The food was flawless! Manisha (the cook) was exceptional, and so very warm. The children's food was also beautifully managed. The staff was very hands on and always ready to do whatever was being asked of them. The pool is also fantastic. The kids loved the game room as well, every evening after sunset we would be playing indoor games. Every night before dinner we attended the aarti at the ganpati temple on the property. Overall, we had a great time full of fun and relaxation.

    Fabbb experience.. stay, food. Hospitality all of it was par excellence. Lush green gardens, lake view picnics, carrom n pool in game room, chit chat by the lounge bar - these are some of the things as part of foresta experience. The high point is the food - lip smacking veg food to suit all taste buds! High speed internet makes work also possible.. the interiors are Very tastefully done by the owner and they indeed have a great eye for detail Super duper experience. I would rate us 7* and highly recommend Foresta to each one who wants to be one with nature, yet not compromise on quality

    We had a very enjoyable stay at this lovely property with our friends. The place is stunning with serene lake views, well landscaped gardens, lots of trees, super amenities for playing sports. Also the Owner and staff are super hospitable. The food is very tasty. We do many staycations and this one would rank among the very best.

    Loved the stay, from the private resort type feel to courteous staff and awesome food by Manisha. The lake is pretty close to make this a perfect weekend getaway from mumbai. We were 11 adults and 2 infants. I have 2 issues. 1. There are more meals that can be done instead of what is offered, we ended up requesting basic meals over a nice meal especially when you pay 2k per person per day. Nevertheless food is great qh

    We ended up being the first guests at Foresta but everything was near perfect. The Staff responded as if they've managed guests for years. They were very responsive to all our needs right through. Food was wonderful. The property itself is simply great with all games, the lake, the open areas, the simple yet tastefully done rooms & common areas. Overall our group that had people between 10 to 80 years all enjoyed. Was a wonderful break after the lockdown! Thank you to the team at Saffronstays.
