About the Home

  • SaffronStays Suvarna Sangam is a cosy weekend getaway in Udupi, situated on a 4-acre river island (almost) with the Suvarna River on three sides, flanked by over 550 coconut trees. It is a 90 minute drive from Mangalore airport, and 6 kms away from the Udupi Railway Station.
  • The home is a cluster of four river-facing cottages/rooms that are lovingly named Shambhavi, Sharavathi, Netravathi and Vedavathi. While they’re situated at an average distance of 100 meters from each other, all of them have a cohesive warm, homely vibe. 
  • Sharavathi is the premium room with an ensuite bathroom on the first floor of the same structure, and accommodates up to 3 guests. 
  • Experience a truly romantic candlelight dinner on the private deck that offers spectacular views of the backwaters. If you're lucky, you may come across a fisherman and could ask for the catch of the day! 
  • Make the most of your stay here by exploring the Suvarna backwaters in the owner's private speedboat (Irena - Goddess of Peace) at an additional cost.
  • The pristine Malpe and Kaup beaches, known for scuba diving and water sports, are very close to the home. Known for their unusual formation, St. Mary's Islands is only an hour away from the home. Only 20 minutes drive from the villa, is the Shri Krishna Mutt Temple in Udupi.

    Hi Team, The stay at Saffronstay Udupi was beautiful. Loved the vibe of the place and the view. Everything was amazing just that the care taker - Prasad was physically unavailable at the property and was coordinating from WhatsApp. There was another caretaker - Sumesh and his family but they did not understand English / Hindi that well so communication was bit of a problem (Though they were very sweet and tried their best to serve us) Moreover, the food options were very limited. In fact we skipped breakfast as the options were less and was not even complimentary. Apart from this, we stayed at Sharavati room which was AC. However, there were few windows which only had net so in the day time AC took long time to cool. Ideally in AC room all windows should be sealed and outside air should not enter. I would love to come back to this property because of the overall experience. Request you to ensure the caretakers are more serious about their job and hospitality. In short, a bit more professionalism would give you guys a 5 star. Thanks Isha

    I had a very pleasant stay. The place is idyllic, specially the early morning view from the deck. The food was decent and good quantity but very limited choice. The place is far from every tourist attraction so makes a perfect place if you looking to have some quite time.

    Property staff is really cooperative n good. Whereas by comparing pricing its too much. No swimming pool, no breakfast, 6170 rs per day certainly not worth. More over saffronstay demanding 5000rs security deposit it also unethical.

    It is a beautiful oasis which is peaceful and quiet. The villa was pretty and clean with provisions like toiletries, towels and shower with hot and cold wash. There is cute walkways through nature and two large river front decks for meals and chilling out. You can also walk through the quiet, green village. The staff is polite and prompt (especially Sukesh and Pradeep) and home stay food is local, tasty and in ample proportion. It has surprisingly strong wifi which supports video calls. Overall loved the experience and would recommend to my friends.

    It was an excellent stay. We literally stayed in mangalore home which gave us clear ‘Malgudi days’ feels. The staff was super friendly and very helpful. We did face language issues but it was good to see a different culture. Location of the place is beautiful and very peaceful. Must visit!
