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. B...

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...

About the Home

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

Surrounded by acres and acres of mango trees, SaffronStays Mango Huts by the River 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, SaffronStays Mango Huts by the River 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).
