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.

    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 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). Shall surely visit again and recommend to friends n family.

    Generally all very good. Good views, delicious food along with helpful and courteous staff. As an improvement, need to look at: 1. Providing a mini fridge in the room. 2. Complimentary mineral water bottles each day. 3. Breakfast should be included considering the room price charged.

    The cabin was amazing. Wonderful room, clean, view of the sun setting, an outdoor porch, outdoor shower to clean off the sand before getting into your room - all the right things in the property. And you get lots of privacy. But the experience with food was not good at all. Extremely few choices in food and everything is prepared on demand. If you want a second helping, you won't get it. Preparation of some items were very good and some, equally bad. If you order fish, you'll be charged Rs. 500 in addition to the daily 1400.

    We were at ‘Little Paradise’ for 5 days. The name of the Property does absolute justice to the unique location (right adjacent to the Arabian Sea) with serene & beautiful surroundings around. The cooperative Staff at your disposal and the delicious cuisine just make this Property amongst one of the best of SaffronStays and a perfect place to unwind. Special mention for the Caretaker (Jehangir), the Chef (Suraj) and the SS Crew (Nikhil & Gaurav) who ensured that my Family has a royal experience whilst soaking in the lap of nature. Best Wishes & looking forward to visiting again !!

    Little Paradise (Tulip) We stayed at this beautiful wooden cabin Tulip at SaffronStays Little Paradise. Loved the rustic decor of this cabin with all the facilities like WiFi setup, Gensat, etc. The food was homely and delicious, loved all the home-cooked meals by the Caretakers. Looking forward to visit this place soon.

    It is a quaint place hidden away from the hustle bustle of the city, a perfect place to unwind and waking up to chirping birds, a beautiful view and deserted beaches. The place is isolated and has only two villas and a private walkway to the beach. The meals were homecooked however found the rooms inside to be a little basic. Overall the experience was good but found the price to be a little steep. If meals were included in the price then that would be ideal and more pocket friendly.

    I had booked stay at this beautiful place for one night. We drove from Mandwa Jetty to the place. It is about 2 and a half hour journey. The chalets are cosy and cute. The place was well maintained. The location is superb. You wake up to beautiful sea view. Special mention to the caretaker and the cook. The caretaker Jahangir was really nice and made us feel safe and like we were at home. The food was amazing too. They even gave us a complimentary cake as it was a birthday celebration. Will surely recommend to friends and family.

    The location of the property and view from the room and patio is just amazing. But I think the property is now a bit old and needs some renovations nonetheless you will enjoy your stay to the fullest. The staff will definitely pamper you with extraordinary food and the help and caretaker on the property Surajit is very polite and cooks really well.

    The location is heavenly! A few steps to the ocean . We are vegetarians and the cool took lot of effort to whip up scrumptious meals. The dum aloo was the best I have eaten! Since we were traveling with a 3 year old, his less spicy meals were also catered too. I do find the room a little small for the price but otherwise it was perfect

    This place is amazing to relax and rejuvenate yourself.. very calm and serene..Food is prepared and served with very much cleanliness..nd its very yummy..staff is very courteous..The place is bit away from the Murud and road is bit bad. But the place overcomes these drawbacks.. It is very well maintained.. my kid loved the premises so much thet he didn't want to come inside the room. We missed the private beach in front of the property due to some construction activity..But overall the experience was very much supreme..Thank you..

    We had visited the Little Paradise on the 19th of Feb and greatly enjoyed our stay at this awesome property that has an uninterrupted view of the ocean. We had a great time at the small private beach that is right in front of the cottages. In addition to this there is also a lovely secluded beach just 10 mins away from the property. The caretaker and entire staff of the bungalow are very courteous and went out of their way to ensure that our stay and also the stay of our pet Mowgli an indie was super comfortable. The food was delicious and the fish was lip smacking yummy. We had a wonderful stay and would recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.

    Tranquil and serene is what describes this place the best. One of the best pet friendly stay we have had so far. The hospitality provided by the staff is remarkable and the food was delicious too. We stayed there for 3 days and it was really good experience. Our pet had blast during the stay, he had so much place to run and a good beach to swim. This is an ideal place for couples as well as big groups. A must recommended place to take your pooch for a vacation (especially if they love swimming, like ours does)

    A beautiful property nestled amidst coconut trees, a lovely garden and a hidden beach. It was a relief to find peace and close contact with nature after months. There are enough safety measures and very few people around. The cottage is simple and restful with a gorgeous sit out where meals are served individually. The staff is genuinely caring and the food wholesome. I especially loved the little beach, it takes a small climb over rocks to get there, personally it wasn't a problem but for some people it could be. The reward was a gorgeous contained beach, chairs were put out and snacks served there on request. Enjoyed walking on the beach and spending morning and evening hours sitting there. There are places like the Murud-Zanzira fort very close by to visit. If you re looking for a safe, cozy place close to nature, where you are lovingly taken care of, look no further. A beautiful experience, would love to come back!

    The location is very pretty. The sun sets exactly in front of the property ..perfect place for that cup of coffee to watch the sunset. Isolated cottages so easier in covid as well. The staff is really good and helpful. They take any requests for special food items and are very humble. Both Salman and Alameen are great hosts and Sharad is an amazing cook. The negative side of this place is the structure and condition of the cottages itself. It’s a pretty old construction because of which there are rats in the walls. As the place is next to the water there are a lot of insects and mosquitoes; it would be easier if the property owner adds some mesh for the windows or insect killers for the evenings.

    eautiful scenic location with comfortable and cosy cottages .Sound of the waves that soothe you & calm your mind- what a lovely property. The beach is almost private & clean. We loved the gazebo & the banyan tree & nice little swing. The food was homely & tasty. The owner of the place called us & checked upon our comfort & also suggested us things to do. The caretaker & his family were cordial & made us food according to our requirements. Overall it was a very peaceful & refreshing stay which brought us home lovely memories to treasure

    Excellent caretaker. Food was very homely though limited in options. No direct access to the beach, as shown on website, was a let down. We had to contend ourselves by waiting for low tides to be able to go to the beach. Tons of lizards on ceilings of verandah and rats running around all night under the bathroom false ceiling.

    Fantastic location and nice property. Great service by the staff and delicious food for every meal. The only sore point was the bathroom, which requires a major renovation. Without an exhaust fan, the bathroom was stuffy all the time. The tiles looked mouldy. Apart from the rain shower, there was no tap fitting to get water from. The overall interior of the bathroom seemed tacky or unfinished.

    It's a nice getaway and quite different from mainstream. The room was cosy and neat. A nice porch overlooking the beach. The outdoors ( garden) was a little disappointing, a little unkept and under maintenance. But the location of the property right next to beach totally makes the place worth visiting. Meals though simple were delicious. Staff and service was generous! Overall loved our 2 night stay and felt safe especially during the pandemic.

    This was our first experience at a Saffron Stays property and to be honest it was very underwhelming. They positioned the property as a luxury getaway and it definitely fell short of that claim. I would not recommend it to anyone as I felt that I was overcharged and Saffron Stays did not deliver.
