    Our stay at Kairos has been splendid and extremely pleasant. The place has a naturally scenic location but what makes it even better is the service by Saffron. Arihant along with his team took every step to make us comfortable. Nikitesh and Guffran went out of their way to take care of everything. The three make a great team of experienced professionals who know how to keep clients happy. A special mention that our pets were very happy too. We will certainly be coming back soon. As usual, thanks to Hemal for recommending yet another perfect getaway.

    The stay was very good and the location very scenic. However, there was some issue with the food as 2 out of the 5 adults got severe food poisoning and an upset stomach prior to the day of the departure. This should be looked into.

    Kairos and the location is simply amazing. The property is well maintained and the staff is super courteous and prompt. The food is great & the service is excellent. Atul and Gufran were always available for any requirements. The only glitch we faced was with the wi-if access, which faced outage intermittently. The access to Camp Max for outdoor activities just adds to the charm.

    One of the best SS properties I've stayed in. Sure, the location is drop dead stunning... But the KEY DIFFERENTIATION is the staff and their attitude. From booking time, Atul was helpful to coordinate and the execution team of Nikitesh, Gufran was outstanding. Much More than a 5 Star experience. Kudos to the team for a spectacular show and guest relationships.

    Had a great stay at Kairos. We were a mixed group of people- a 10 month old baby, a 90 year old grandmother and a bunch of youngsters but the experience and hospitality by Nikitesh, Atul, Gufran and Prakash was amazing. The food customisation, prompt service and property location, everything was amazing. Highly recommend the same.

    We stayed at this property for one night during a week day. We were 2 couples though this place has 3 bedrooms. The location of Kairos is to die for, facing the lake. It is so beautiful, serene and peaceful that you wonder if this gem is really so close to Mumbai. The room on the first floor with its balcony is the best as you get the entire view from the top. The other 2 rooms on the ground floor are also similarly laid out and opens to a patio with the lake view. Rooms are well decorated and spacious. Bathrooms are also neat and clean. The entire property is in blue and white shades and inspired by Santorini in Greece. Atul was our coordinator throughout. He was assisted by Nikitesh(Camp Max), Gufran and Prakash. Nikitesh was taking us around and arranging our meals and activities at Camp Max. Gufran was assisted by Prakash and taking care of our meals and in-house. Staying at this property also gives access to Camp Max just across the lake by boat. Camp Max is for adventure lovers and gives access to many different activities (free+paid) We had a very beautiful and comfortable stay and 24 hrs is just not enough to enjoy this property.

    Atul was very responsive and he helped with all the queries before reaching the villa. Nikitesh and Gufran are really warm and welcoming. They helped with all our requests, were always smiling and made us feel at home and very comfortable. The food options were also quite elaborate and good. We enjoyed all our meals quite a lot. The decor and ambiance of the villa is awesome and the activities at campmax was a good surprise since we didn’t expect that those would be available in this area. We really enjoyed the stay here and would definitely recommend this place to friends and family.

    We had the most ‘luxurious’ weekend ever. The villa and the view is BREATHTAKING. The entire team Atul, Nikitesh (outstanding chef) and Gufraan took care of each and every need and also helped decorate the house for our sons birthday! It’s a 10/10 getaway. Thank you Hemal for recommending this place - can’t wait to go back!
