    The property is well managed and is indeed one of the best property I have stayed. The flora and fauna around makes your trip a memorable and enjoyable. The quiet and serene ambience makes your holiday a perfect one. The caretaker team is so well mannered and are at your service round the clock. The head caretaker cum cook is best of all. The variety of food he prepares of your choice becomes the icing on the cake. Overall a perfect holiday with perfect set of team. This property is worth staying and exploring

    We had an amazing 3 night stay at Masaya. The cottage is set in a 100 acre property set in nature. The pictures a don’t do justice to the actual place. We wanted a break amongst nature in a quiet place. And we couldn’t have asked for more. Excellent hospitality by the team led my Mahendar ji. The food was amazing and the team took care of all our needs .This was my first experience with Saffron stays and needless to say that I am sold on to the concept. Definitely coming to stay at Masaya again.

    We had a very relaxed and enjoyable break. It was as per our expectation before the trip. Mahendra and team welcomed us and ensured we were comfortable throughout our stay. Food was tasty and healthy. Rooms, baths and outdoors were clean. We enjoyed the quietness and the surrounding nature - the hills, greenery, waterfalls and the flora/fauna. We enjoyed walking in the heavily wooded unpaved road as well.

    Had a great stay at Masaya. Mahender and his team were great. The food was fantastic, every meal, every time! Two points of improvement would be more focus on cleanliness and hygiene and also the electrical circuits of the villa need to be looked at, many of the lights, plugs and AC’s tripped numerous times.

    The staff were all very good, took care of us well, food was absolutely to our liking and taste with some initial feedback. It took quite a bit of off-roading for us to get to the villa, but maybe due to the rains the condition of the roads were bad, overall very pleasant experience
