Good property, very good staff and excellent food! Had some issues with the power/generator backup on and off, but a very refreshing stay overall
Too well maintained place and very peaceful stay
Very beautiful place
The lounge/common area was smelling and the sofas were filthy. AC in the lounge was also not working and the standing AC sent as replacement was also not cooling at all. Additionally there was not even enough seating in the lounge for 6 people, considering there are 4 bedrooms the lounge should seat at least 8 people comfortably. The pool had a layer of white fungus on top of it.
Staff. Wet courteous and food was awesome. AC’s not working well and we were not allowed to use living room AC at all, which made our stay little difficult due to summer times. Housekeeping was also not done daily.
Nice place for a private get away .. a swing in the area may help
Amazing weekend at the Forest! We had a lot of fun and we’re able to enjoy a good break from our daily grind. The staff is really helpful and friendly! Enjoyed the food a lot as well. Specifically the bhakri for dinner and the pakodas in the afternoon
Very good stay. Very courteous care takers. Well maintained property. All spaces were very comfortable and quality of materials used is very nice. Good for family gathering and the cute little pools was amazing
It was a fabulous stay indeed. The property is indeed surrounded by nature . Stay here feels refreshing. The staff - Dinesh Mhatre and family take superb care of us and fed us awesome meals of our choice. It was a memorable new year for us. Thank you Saffron Stays ! You always deliver the best.
Hosts Divya and Dinesh took very good care of us. Divya is an excellent cook, all meals were delicious. Kids enjoyed the pool thoroughly. Overall an excellent experience at the property
A big thank you to Divya and Dinesh for the enjoyable stay we had at The Forest. They went out of their way to ensure that everything was perfect for us. The rooms and the entire villa were well maintained and spotlessly clean. It was also very thoughtful to have a lot of sports equipment, board games and books for recreation. We made the most of it. A couple of points that we felt could be improved; a. The directions given by SaffronStays were inaccurate and made us go in circles. I am sure you'll could do better by leading us from the Step Inn bar to reaching Sadhana Dairy and taking a left turn from there. There could also be a few boards of The Forest placed enroute from the time we take a turn from the dairy. b. The kitchen is a bit too distant from the dining area to allow seamless service during meals. These are just some points for improvement. All in all we had a great time. Thank you! Vaibhav from the bookings team was also of immense help. He went out of his way to share various options and helped us shortlist this one. Greatly appreciated, Vaibhav!
We absolutely loved our stay at the Forest. The property was so clean and the help Divya & Dinesh were so helpful. The food that Divya made was delicious. Overall it was great and we're already planning our next trip at the Forest soon.
Clean and Hygienic. Food taste and quality is really amazing!!
This is a nice cozy place. The hospitality of the staff and the meals were outstanding. They also recommended a smal trek that led up to a pond at the top of hill which was a fun and unique experience!

Had a superb stay . Loved the place . Caretakers are awesome
Hi Sweta, Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and we look forward to hosting you again.
Nice place but no hot water Small cockroaches unfinished rooms inconvenient dinner table tv very few channels someone should be there at night as this is a quite a secluded property
Very happy with the staff, specifically dinesh and divya. Courteous, helpful, and great home-cooked food. Don't feel the same about saffron stays. Unjustified amount for the stay, meals separately charged, pet fee separately charged (which wasn't communicated to us), 20k deposit what for? Unjustified. Deserving of praise are the staff who works hard to make the place comfortable for guests.
Excellent place, we really enjoyed the hospitality & our vacation. Specially coaprative staff Dinesh & his wife.
Hi Vivek, Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and would love to host you again.
Villa: Villa is similar to what is depicted in pictures. Rooms are bit small. Location: it is difficult to find property on map. However Care taker dinesh came to main road to pick us up.It is better to call him at main road then exploring insides of village 30 mins simple Hike to mountain close by villa offers breath taking view of whole alibaug.Special thanks to Dinesh for leading us there Meals : options are limited for veg but food is delicious. Divya took special care for all our meals..special thanks to Divya for making us feel home away from home Saffron stay staff: Prathamesh ,ensured we have smooth check in and check out... Safety: As property is foot of mountains surrounded by forest, there are lot of insects..adviceable to stay indoor after sunset. Pool doest have railing, families with kids running around need to be careful with kids accidently tripping in the pool Roads : roads leading to village last 1.5 km is bad ,not adviceable for pregnant female ( however she can walk it up to the property) or car with low ground clearance.
Loved the place. Staff was excellent. Took very good care. Food was very tasty. Its a nice place. In the midst of nature. Peaceful.
Hi Krupa, Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and we look forward to hosting you again.
Prathmesh helped coordinate everything well along with caretaker Dinesh and his wife
Hi Dhvani, Thank you for this review. Visit us again, cannot wait to host you. :)
We stayed here for two nights and it was a very pleasant stay. The weather was really good and all the rooms were clean and tidy except for a few small issues which were immediately rectified by the caretaker Dinesh. He and his wife took utmost care of us and ensured everything went smoothly. The meals were also quite good. Special mention to Prathamesh for a transparent communication. Hope to visit some time soon again!
Hi Priti, Thank you for taking the time to review us. Glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Please book with us sometime soon, cannot wait to host you again. :)
Lovely hotel in an excellent location. Rooms are spotless & cleaned daily, breakfast is plentiful. Staff are very helpful .
Hi Narendra, Thank you for this happy review. Visit us again, cannot wait to host you. :)
We had a relatively comfortable stay. The villa is surrounded by lush greenery, which helps disconnect from city life. The only downside to location is that it’s quite interior with no proper roads. So traveling by sedan is not preferable. The house itself was nice and clean, and we enjoyed the pool and the games provided. The main hiccup was the meals since the cook and caretaker had to leave due to some personal emergency. However Prathmesh helped coordinate meals from outside and the refund of amount paid for Saffronstays meals. Overall it’s a nice retreat for a weekend.
Hi Yash, Thank you for your feedback. We apologize for the inconvenience caused. The roads are now in good condition, thank you for your kind cooperation. Looking forward to hosting you again :)
A perfect place for a getaway. The caretakers Dinesh and Prathamesh are very welcoming and warm. We had an amazing time at The Forest. Thank you!

Hi Samir, Thank you for this happy review. Visit us again, cannot wait to host you. :)
Hi Murari, Thank you for your review. :)
The property was exactly how the pictures showed it to be. Very nice and quaint. The pool was excellent and the garden was nice as well. It is a new construction. The negatives were:- 1) The approach road was very bad, our cars almost could not make it (no warning was given for this) 2) The Beds are too small for 2 adults even. 3) The tiles around the swimming pool are very slippery and hence without the Mat you are bound to fall. 4) There was a very bad smell in the common room which did not leave us till the end of our stay and the staff could not do anything about it. Otherwise the holiday was excellent. PS: Saffronstays should inform about deposit cash well in advance as most of us don’t carry cash anymore.
Hi Rushin, Thank you for this feedback. We're looking into your review immediately.
The stay was very pleasant. Care takers were really caring and took utmost care of all our needs. Arihant was also very helpful in guiding us to the property. Well kept property. Food was very tasty. Very good place for getting the furry friends. Keep up the good work
Guest were very cooperative & Polite. Thank you for choosing The Forest ðŸŒ³ for staycation.
Overall the villa is quite nicely done and the care takers are both lovely people. The food was good. Some of the issues we faced were as below: 1. Villa is difficult to find through google maps- this is manageable so not much of an issue 2. Lot of volatge fluctuations, the ac in one of the rooms was not working properly on 1st day and the ac in the hall was not working properly on the 2nd day. A technician had to come to repair the same. Given the temp. Were touching 40c and the price we paid for villa, this was unacceptable. 3. The wifi stopped working from late night on 2nd day, dont know if it was a one of issue - with poor mobile network, wifi is needed 4. Some days meals were inadequate, when you are paying a good amount for it, you would not want shortage of good food. 5. Barbeque was not up to the mark. Snacks were burnt and not worth the price charged.
Hi Kunal, We apologise for the inconvenience caused. Please be rest assured that we've taken care of this and our team is working on it.
Very good property, well maintained and clean. Helpful staff

Hi Arun, Thank you for this review. Glad you enjoyed your stay with us
Keep up the good show!
Hi Anurag, Thank you for your review. :)
Hey, our stay at the forest villa was very good, but the network there is very bad and the wifi is not strong enough. The caretakers are very nice and they make you feel homely . The cleanliness and other arrangements are excellent . The food prepared by the caretakers is very tasty and homely . The only problem is navigating to the villa can be tough and it’s not easily accessible. But overall the stay was very nice.
Hi Dhvani, Since the location of the home is such, mobile network tends to get patchy. We've worked on the WiFi speed too. Thank you for this constructive feedback. Book with us some time soon, cannot wait to host you again. :)
Wonderful place to stay. Away from the crowd... inside a forest type area...it's the last plot on the road. The approach is a khacha road but beautiful. Fields nearby & trek to the lake on the hill top added to the experience. Would definitely recommend!!
Hi Bhoomika, Thank you for you review. Glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Visit us soon. :)
The property is neat, but access road to locate is difficult.Google GPS for property is incorrect. The rooms are clean but small. The room with twin beds is good for family of 4. The linen and towels provided were clean and overall hygiene was great. Meals were fulfilling and quantity was awesome..both veg & non veg options and they even provide local delicacies. The caretaker family is extremely helpful..they grow their own vegetables so you can even buy some. If going with kids..the overall feel of farm nearby is something they will enjoy
Hi Nauzad, Thank you for this review. We've fixed the GPS and are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. Book with us again, cannot wait to host you. :)
Schedule cleaning of rooms every morning with change of toiletaries should be done. Call bell/alarm should be placed to call the staff
Hi Sanjeev, Thank you for this feedback. We've informed this to the relevant team.
Just had a wonderful 2 nights at 'The Forest' with family. Considering it was our first outing post the lockdown, we were really looking forward to the break, but were also apprehensive about the sanitization and cleanliness. To our surprise and joy, the place was more than we had asked for. Divya and Dinesh had kept the villa spotless and sanitized before we arrived. The serene surroundings, the no noise experience amongst the calm nature, the hot, local food served by them with a smile, it was simply amazing! Would recommend this place to anyone travelling to Alibaug and wanting a private getaway amidst nature away from the crowds! Would only suggest them to learn a little more variety of cuisine so theres more choice for everyone!
Hi Resham, Thank you for this happy review. So glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Book with us soon, cannot wait to host you again. :)
Nice experience. Feedback added in private
Hi Aditya, Thank you for your feedback. :)

My family and I had a super holiday at The Forest, Alibaug. Quaint Villa and serene environment, added with super hospitality and local delicacies dished out by Dinesh & Divya, the two caretakers at the property. Served us through out with a smile and warmth. Great experience. Thanks a ton team Saffron Stays for a memorable holiday.
