5 Reviews

Our speciality

Nestled between 6 acres of mango orchards, Mango Huts is a cozy pair of rustic cottage, ideal for digital-free weekends. Just 30 minutes from Adlabs Imagica, Mango Huts is the perfect family escape!

Detailed Description

Looking to escape the bustling city with your kids? Mango Huts - a charming farmstay in Khopoli 30 minutes away from Adlabs Imagica is your answer.

Surrounded by acres and acres of mango trees, Mango Huts is a cozy pair of rustic cottages carefully designed to let guests experience life in the idyllic countryside.

Both cottages - one 3 bedroom and one 2 bedroom - have an earthy, comfortable vibe, making it ideal for those laid-back, digital-free weekends. Here’s you chance to finally challenge your kids to an old-school game of Monopoly or Snakes & Ladders.

Nestled in the majestic Sahyadri valley and bordered by a perennial river, Mango Huts is a verdant paradise during the monsoons and the cold Sahyadri winters. Walk barefoot across the fresh green grass, throw a Frisbee and disconnect from the chaos of city life. Take a tour around the orchards or a dip in the stream adjoining the property. Hire a bullock cart to scenic locations nearby such as the Padsare waterfalls or the Jatayu Ganpati temple. One can also trek up a jungle path to visit this ancient temple (roughly a 2 hour walk)

For the more adventurous souls, the new Adlabs Imagica is just 30 minutes away from the property. Spend the day at Imagica and we will be waiting with delicious home cooked food upon your return. We serve three very different, authentic cuisine options: the well-known Kolhapuri cuisine, the hugely popular Malvani style cuisine, and the lesser known Bhusawal style cuisine (to be booked in advance).

Far from the maddening city, Mango Huts is a little slice of paradise ideal for digital-free family holidays.

Less than 2 hours of driving distance from mumbai, mangohuts is ideal for a relaxing weekend with friends and family. Go to this place to unwind..away from 3G/4G world. The rooms are neat and clean with all basic ammenities available. Ms surekha cooked delicious food while mr sanjay (the caretaker) looked after us very well and made everything available. We definitely recommend this place for a spending a weekend with friends or family....

This place is different as the name suggests its a hut. Its slightly off the road and does not have anything close by. It can be very quiet. We had a two day stay, in which we really did not want to do a lot of touristy site-seeing, but good time with family. We loved it as a family as kids got to play with fish in the stream & trek a small hillock. We rarely went inside the huts. Food was homemade and freshly cooked for all meals. There were slight issues with the food as we could not have fish even once. This was a regret in our family as we love fresh water fish and can see so many swimming nearby ! I was told its difficult to catch and it being a long weekend, difficult to get in market. But chicken was great and different in every meal. Sweets could have had variety especially as jalebis of day 1 gave a stale taste, gulab jamuns of day 2 were better. Veggies were awesome in each meal. Considering it was just one lady running the kitchen, we were very well taken care of. Beds were clean, so were the huts. It was a beautiful hut with mango trees around it. AC was not required by us , but is available. Same for TV. Wifi is not available and phone connection goes off on airtel& jio, but stays on vodafone. Though site asks u to bring your towels and toiletries, both of these things were available to our satisfaction....

We completely enjoyed the stay, the location was exactly what we wanted it to be i.e. full of greenery, quietness and away from the city noise. The caretakers were cooperative too. This was a perfect holiday home. Looking forward from Saffron Stays for more such holiday homes....

This is a beautiful property located near Pali, abt 3 odd hours from Mumbai. The roads are decent most of the way barring the last few kilometers where they are quite bad (maybe the monsoon effect). The property itself is done up very well, with nice landscaping, walkways, trees & all. The kids enjoyed making paper boats in the streams. There are 4 dogs, who are quite friendly with children and happy to be patted. The rustic cottages are also comfortable with a/c and decent washrooms. Wish the lighting is brighter, as it gets bit dim after dark. The food is simple home-cooked style served hot. I think there can be some more choice to cater to fussy eaters who may want variety. Poha and upma for breakfast was nice, some eggs and toast would have been welcome. The caretakers at the property are very helpful and responsive to all requests. but it is best to stock up on wafers, biscuits etc as the nearest store is be quite a distance away The owner is very friendly and helpful, we forgot our tablet at the property and she was quite kind to have it brought back to mumbai at the earliest. Good place to relax over the weekend....
