    Few pointers Ur website shows they are senior friendly but the steps to the cottages are not good for seniors vry difficult to climb up n get down The beds in the cottages are too high not easy to get on them, not only for seniors but for everyone The bathrooms are too small, less spaced out The mattresses on the beds very hard Iv gvin my feedback which you shd definitely look into

    It was a wonderful time-off at Mango Huts. Based on the reviews that we had read earlier, the expectations from the team there were high and they exceeded even those. Jhanvi, Pallavi, Sanjay and Bhaskar (not to forget Toffy) did a wonderful job with the food and making our stay very comfortable. One thing to mention though is about the pool there. The pool is just outside the 2 bedroom cottage but the 3 bedroom cottage is given preference to access it. The size of the pool (smallish) and the depth (4ft) is ideal for kids. So if you are a family travelling with kids who would like to have some pool time it is advisable to first check if the 3 bedroom cottage is booked. Because if it is, you will not be able access the pool even though it is just outside the 2 bedroom cottage. Overall a great experience.

    SaffronStays Care Team

    Dear Nilufer, It was wonderful to have you at our property. Thank you for taking the time to write to us. All our meals are home-cooked by the staff with fresh produce, and in this case prepared in keeping with the ambience. As a rustic farm stay, Mango Huts is defined around the concept of simple, village style living while and offers a unique experience by itself. We ensured that our rooms and bathrooms were cleaned and well sanitized for the entire duration of your stay. However your feedback has been taken and we’ll work on putting up signages that lead the way to this beautiful property. Looking forward to having you with us again and thank you for your patronage.

    This property is heavenly in monsoons! Surrounded by lush green mountains dotted with waterfalls and low floating clouds, landscapes with all shades of green that you could imagine, and a beautiful rivulet... The views just soothe your soul and rejuvenate you. The cottages have a rustic feel (which I loved). The staff is courteous and helpful. Rooms were clean and tidy. The property has a nice outdoor badminton court which we enjoyed. Also has a small swimming pool. It has nice gazebos where you can sit and chill; and also a cute swing. Food was average. We had a good time. You can also visit the Ganapati temple in Pali and the historical spot of Umberkhind.

    The Positive: Amazing food and catered to our needs throughout our stay. The caretakers (Mr. & Mrs. Waghmare) of the property took great care of us as well. Special shoutout to the owners for giving us fresh mangoes from the property itself. The Negative: Need to work on cleanliness of the property. The common areas like the dining room were never cleaned! The rooms were cleaned onl at the floor level but everything from floor above wasn't. Cobwebs everywhere, dusty sofas, etc. Room was cleaned only once after requesting twice. The pool needs some infrastructure upgrade since its in a forested area. Pool was infested with frogs and crabs almost all the time, we never used it because of that. Would definitely recommend this place for a nature retreat and relax for few days away from all the hustle bustle of the city.

    This is a lovely homely place for small families and couples. Very green and verdant. One can take long walks and enjoy long mornings /evenings in their many gazebos. The cottages feel rustic and cosy. We really enjoyed our meals as jhanvi is an excellent cook. Must have her Gulab Jamun and seviya kheer. Enjoyed the fried chicken as well. The staff kindly loaded our cars full of Mangoes before we left. We're still enjoying them. Points to note 1. This place works well for adults looking to escape Mumbai for green surroundings. It has a farm like feel. Kids tend to get bored unless they're really into nature. The pool looks larger in the images than it is in real life. You should plan on how you will keep kids occupied especially during the day when it's too hot to be outside. They have a badminton court and some games but good idea to bring some as well. Secondly, driver acco was not up to the mark so i had my driver sleep n our cottage living area. This was not ideal so I recommend that the property upgrade the driver acco.

    We had a wonderful stay. The property is beautiful and great for weekend relaxation. All staf members and specially Sanjay are very sweet and offer great hospitality. The approach road is good now. There are network issues but wi fi is good. The pool is well maintained and clean. The only thing I wished was the beds to be a little wider. Loved the property and stay, we should be back here whenever in Khopoli.

    SaffronStays Care Team

    Dear Deepika, Thank you for taking out the time to review us. We're glad you had a memorable stay and would love to stay with us again. We have noted your suggestion. It is guests like you who help us grow, one stay at a time. :)

    27 Feb 2021

    We loved how far flung into the wilderness this property was! Save the lack of soundproofing in the cottage which didn't allow privacy in the rooms, we enjoyed everything else - the food, the warm hospitality, lots of space walk and lounge around. The amenities are very basic, but clean. There were no other guests and it definitely helped to have the entire place to ourselves.

    The place is too good. Must b more scenic in monsoon. Caretaker santosh n janvi very friendly. Always pleasant smile on face. Food was tasty . Little bit lonely for a Medical emergency . One vehicle must be parked in the property for emergency with proper person who can drive. One suggestion the big trees can be named with a name plate by making proper landscaping. Enjoyed a lot leaving aside the regular hustle bustle.

    Overall a good experience but this property scores very low on 'value commensurate with cost'. Given the very modest infrastructure and basic surroundings, the prices need to be cut by 30-40%

    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. B

    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
