    We stayed at the Gardenia villa in Kihim for 3 days. It was a family outing and we were 8 adults. The reservation process was smooth and we were ably assisted by Nikhil andPranay through the planning and reservation formalities. Sachin Purao connected with us a day prior to guide and confirm on the meal plan for the first day. The villa is around 25 minutes from the Mandwa jetty. It’s a gorgeous property with a sprawling well maintained lawn garden with lovely sit-out garden seats. The villa is huge with a sprawling sitting room and elegant furniture. The 4 bedrooms are very large in size and well furnished. The attached bathrooms are large, well equipped and very clean. The dining area is well planned overlooking the well maintained swimming pool and seats eight people at a time. The food and service provided by the staff was outstanding. The quality of meals was superb and the staff takes great pride in taking utmost care of serving you at all times. We relished the Maharashtrian cuisine that was served and the mutton curry with vade, fish curry, zhunka bhakri were excellent. Batata wada, kanda and potato bhajias and kothimbir wadi with steaming hot masala chai were perfect to relish during the rainy evenings. The desserts like piping hot puran polis and ukdiche modak were out of the world. Also, there is very good cuisine variety as we enjoyed Chinese food prepared for dinner. The staff catered to every need. One of the family members cannot eat spicy food and the staff prepared each dish without the chilly spice unfailingly. We would like to thank Sachin, Jayendra, Rahul, Malti, Sushma, Vishal & Ravi for a wonderful stay

    Fantastic team at Gardenia, that goes out of their way to make sure the guests are well looked after. Food is clearly a highlight with Sachin, Jai, Rahul and the extended team, serving delicious home cooked meals through the day. We also requested for a barbecue on Day 1, which was very good. The local delicacies are a must try - ask the staff for recommendations. The villa is very spacious, functional and comes with a lovely pool. The property in itself is not very fancy but is well equipped and offers great value for money. Perfect for a short weekend getaway, especially during the monsoons as the villa offers lush green views on all sides.

    We had an excellent stay. Excellent service by the staff. Some stray dogs but that aspect is being addressed.

    SaffronStays Care Team

    Hi Pallavi, Thank you for your review. Glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Further to your constructive feedback, we'd like you to know that we've now installed a grill right below the main gate to keep strays at bay. Thank you and looking forward to host you again. :)

    Lovely property and the highlight has to be the food & the team led by Sachin, Rahul who put in every effort to put in place anything needed. We stayed 5 nights at the property and enjoyed the large pool and lawns. We spotted a snake & few dogs entered the property, apart from that our stay was safe and comfortable.

    SaffronStays Care Team

    Hi Sheetal, Thank you for your review. We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us. It was a wonderful time hosting you. We've taken immediate action on your feedback about strays and have installed a grill right below the main gate to prevent them from entering the premises. As for snakes, you can be rest assured that they're reptiles that look like snakes, are completely harmless and non-poisonous, and happen to enter the property given the current weather conditions. Thank you, we look forward to hosting you again. :)
