Designed for large family get-togethers or even a small reunion with your college buddies, SaffronStays Hobbes allows you to spend some much-needed quality time together away from the big city. Relax, unwind and let the picturesque backdrop of the mountains and charming lake views soothe you.

Round up the kids - both young and old - for a smashing game of paintball down at XThrills (a gaming extravaganza complete with paintball, rappelling, rock-climbing and indoor golf). If you’d rather take in the sights, you could also rent cycles from XThrills and discover all that Lavasa has to offer on wheels.

Whether you’re looking for a relaxing vacation up in a hill station or an action-packed weekend of adventurous sports, Hobbes has something special to offer you!

P.S - If you’re travelling with a larger group, we have a twin villa right next door - SaffronStays Calvin - that guests can book.
