About the Home

  • SaffronStays Little Paradise comprises three sea-facing couple-friendly wooden cabins - Lotus, Tulip, and Orchid, overlooking Murud Beach and is a 2021 Travelers’ Choice Award Winner by TripAdvisor. This pet-friendly home is a 4.5-hour drive from Mumbai and Pune. 
  • Tucked away from the city chaos - private and safe - the wooden cabins at this beach-facing villa in Alibaug are equidistant from each other, each with their share of the sea view and an inflatable pool that can be arranged upon request. Imagine being here during the golden hour - an experience nowhere else to be found! 
  • This villa in Alibaug stands surrounded by jungle greens and is full of newer, unique experiences. 
  •  We recommend visiting Murud Beach to try some adrenaline-rushing water sports. Do all-things-touristy and set out to explore the beautiful town of Agardanda, which is only a km away. Guests can catch a ferry and visit Dighi Port or Janjira Fort.
  • This cosy wooden chalet has a porch facing the sea where delicious Konkani meals with a Bengali twist prepared by our in-house cook can be served. Don’t forget to request for his Masala Baingan, which is finger-lickin' good.
  • Our caretakers will be more than happy to arrange a candle-light dinner and/or a movie-screening night for you and your better half.

    Great: * Great staff to coordinate booking arrangements. * Great Property garden & Cottage exterior * Very nice Caretaker (Jehangir & Fatima) * Food was very good. Very disappointed with - Would not recomend this place basis below * The beach is fully blocked out by a 10 foot wall built over a year back- not mentioned at all on your website. Infact your video says 'walk straight onto your beach". Very misleading & HUGE disappointment as beach access was the USP for us & the kids. The 10 foot wall has only half the steps built. Fix it, and I can recommend this place further 2) Security - The place may have a low crime rate, but the wooden challet only has a full glass door as protection from an intruder at the doorstep, which is scary at night. Ensure well designed grills on the door which could solve that. Till then, it's a concern. 3) Menu - your menu link says chose one nonveg portion of 'prawns fry', 'fish fry', from the menu which is included in the 1,400 rate. However it required to be paid extra. That should be made clearer on your link, which fish dishes are inclusive. 4) Room interiors are average and don't go with the beach cottage feel - eg. A large black bottle cap as a decor item does not go in sync.

    Very nice. If you want a quiet getaway with a great view, and a good book that you've always wanted to finish, then this is it. Walk the dog on the (almost pvt) beach, contemplate, meditate etc. Unfortunately, there's nothing much else to do. Murud beach is about half an hrs drive away and a bigger beach. We had a relaxing time there.

    Overall good experience with pleasant breezy climate, good hygiene food and polite staff. In terms of disappointment, the curtains in the rooms are short compromising privacy and there has been a new road built in by the Indian coast guard, acting as a hindrance to directly reaching the beach. Youngsters can still manage to reach the beach but it can get challenging for aged people.

    Had a pleasant stay. Quite a peaceful and serene location. The staff esp. Jahangir and family were very polite and took good care. The place is slightly difficult to spot. The logo on the gate gets missed, adding a correct google marker or prominent sign outside would help. Exhaust fan in washrooms should be added.

    The Little Paradise property is a good destination for a quick vacation. The staff who stayed there were extremely sweet and caring. Catered to our every need and gave us the most delicious meals. We were traveling with a 10 month old baby, and they made the most good food for him and were very accommodating about our requests. The view from the stay is gorgeous. But the beach is not accessible from the property; You’d just be looking at the sea from a paved road. You’d have to drive to more popular destinations if you wanted to go to a proper beach. The drive around the place is very beautiful. There were two things that really bothered us about the stay. 1. The boiler in our cottage had very little capacity. So we’d have to switch it on for 15 mins as was advised, and the water would cool down in less than a minute. This meant that we couldn’t take a proper shower, and would have to otherwise fill the bucket with hot water in parts and was very time consuming. 2. Saffron stays sends a lot of emails and messages right before and during the duration of the stay. Even if you send your meal preferences or add the total number of guests, it will keep on sending these messages to update your information. This definitely needs to be looked into as it is a major mood killer. And to top it all, this information is not even properly conveyed to the staff at your stay. They would anyway call you to confirm your food for the day you arrive which we thought was super sweet. Overall lovely stay

    The little paradise is truly as the other reviews have described it to be - quaint, peaceful and tucked away. We went in late August and our trip has mix of sunny and rainy days. It's fun in both weathers as the view of the sea and the greenary from the cottage was always beautiful. The food is really good. Our favourite preparations were Pepper Chicken, Chicken Biriyani and cutlets. The breakfast was usually simple but tasty. We had samosa as evening snacks which was again perfect. The beach is accessible during low tides. It's a nice stretch and mostly clean. There is alot of greenery around. The place is perfect for a two day trip

    Overall this is definitely a place I would go back to, provided the concerns (cons) mentioned below are addressed. Pros: Staff - The staff was extremely courteous, honest and polite and our requests were being timely acknowledged. Meals - The food was amazingly delectable, so much that we even wanted to ask for a recipe of one of the dishes. Food here is definitely one of the highlights of this property. Cons: Safety: Covid related - Staff was not consistently wearing masks, some of them didn't wear them at all. We were shocked to get to know from one of the staff members that they just recovered from Covid. Body Temperature and Oxygen levels were not checked at all during check in. Mosquitoes: There were too many mosquitoes right outside the door and there was absolutely no remedy for this. The best they could do was light an incense stick which hardly made any difference. Also the view outside the room is peaceful and enjoyable. But we couldn't just sit outside and enjoy the view as there was not even a fan connected due to some ongoing renovation. And the mosquitoes just added to the trouble. Cleanliness: Room Cleaning - Towels weren't changed during room cleaning and we had to remind the staff multiple times about it. Geyser - The geyser was not fully operational as even after keeping it on for 20 mins with the tap shut, it was only pouring hot water for less than a min. Dead insects - We know that this property is in the middle of a kind of a jungle and is very prone to insects. There were a few dear insects in the room as well as the bathroom. These were eventually cleaned by the staff during the room cleaning.

    Brilliant Staff! So humble and always ready to help Staff. Took care of smallest of our requirements with a prompt service. Big 3 cheers to Jehangir, Fatima ji, New guy forgot his name and Alamin. Fatima ji’s Food just Finger licking. No extra Oil and taam jaam but top notch taste! From Breakfast to Dinner all 8 meals in 2 nights stay was spot on! Thanks a lot for this amazing delight. Also Special mention to Tejasweenee for accommodating/resolving the problem i had faced with a large heart. Thanks team SS. Even the owner Brahma ji had enquired twice during my stay.

    The stay was truly awesome and the staff (Jehangir and his wife Fatima) have been really amazing with its service and lip smacking food. The support staff (Alamin and Mujhi) too were working effortlessly and were always smiling. Thanks for letting us experience such a lovely property with a beautiful view of the Beach( 100 meters away). Although Beach Access is not advisable for Sr Citizens as it is through the rocks. Shall surely visit again. Thanks.

    This place is rightly named as little paradise. The staff is very welcoming and warm. All safety measures were followed. Caretaker Alamin and Salman know more about hospitality than any other 5 star hotel. The views are terrific. It’s almost as if you have the Agardanda beach to yourself. Pretty secluded, if you are looking for a soothing place to relax close to Mumbai, go for it.

It's just the kind of the place you want to go to when you need to get away from the chaos in the city and relax, recharge. I wish there was an easier access to the beach because I was actually thinking of bringing my elderly parents the next time. But no point if they can't visit the beach.

    The place is superb, Me & my wife just loved it. We have been there for our Wedding anniversary and Choosing this location was the best decision, It made our anniversary memorable. The caretaker of the cottages was so helpful, he beautifully decorated our room and made fantastic candle light arrangements for us. The food was awesome, we felt like we are eating at home; Although it was a bit expensive but worth the money we spent. We were mesmerized with the beautiful sea view from the cottages & the greenery. The place is so peaceful! exactly the way we wanted. The property Owner was so helpful, he nicely explained us the route to reach the location and also guided us about nearby places which we can visit. He was so helpful throughout our stay. We just loved the place, it is a must visit location....We would definitely visit it again.
