    Loved our stay at Raanwara. Pool was the best part at the location, one of the best. The place is well maintained and clean. Whatever was required, was arranged promptly. Vignesh has been a good host. Food was decent, they can try to add few varieties though. But limited menu was good one. Location is quite inside, make sure you’ve loaded the maps, as the network Is not there around the property Just one suggestion, there should be a sign board saffron stays on main Road.

    SaffronStays Care Team

    Thank you for taking out the time to review us. We're glad you had a memorable stay. We have noted your suggestion about the sign board and will look into it at the earliest. We hope you give us another chance to host you and your loved ones.

    Lovely place. Truly pet friendly. The staff was very patient with pets being around and helped with special meal requests for them. Avinash who manages the property ensured we were comfortable at all times. Highly recommend the place - will be back soon. Thankyou to Ravi at the resturant.

    If you want to be have a comfortable stay in the middle of nowhere then this is the place. Scenic view from the deck of your room or from anywhere in the property, birds chirping early in the morning, greenery all around, kind of old fort like charm created with stone arches and a stairwells and chiku and mango trees all around.

    Staff was very friendly and helpful. Our overall stay was pleasant. Just one complaint I.e there was big communication gap between saffron stays booking team and on duty manager and our requirements were not clearly communicated to staff. (Ex. Kitchen access for infants food). Also, need to do something about insects entering in rooms.

    We had a wonderful vacation at this property. Ravi and his staff was extremely helpful. Vinod the chef here prepared lip smacking food. However, I feel with the amount of money they charge bbq should also be included in the meals.

    We would have liked a bit more flexibility with the food. One suggestion , along with kettle and tea/coffee in the room, please provide for milk powder. Most of us like our morning cup of tea/ coffee with milk. Other than that our trip was fabulous. Had a very happy pre Diwali vacation :)

    Lovely stay, especially if you have the place to yourself. Great views from the property and the lake is a short trek away. The pool was amazing! Staff was friendly and helpful, the place was clean and felt safe. Food was decent but could use some improvement.

    The villa Raanwaara & Aranya which we stayed in was superb..... In this COVID 19 time, special measures were taken for our safety and precautions by the staff and caretaker and the villa was properly maintained and especially the taste and quality of food was really very superb my whole family including the kids really enjoyed the food, rooms, view and all the staff. Will surely recommend to others whenever needed.

    Raanwaara is a lovely property 3 hrs from Mumbai but completely cut-off from the city. It's quiet, peaceful and perfect for a digital detox. The staff is polite and resourceful. We had an issue with the Ac and they were very prompt in identifying and fixing it. Food is decent; we preferred the regular Indian food to the Chinese cuisine. Good weekend break!
