    We had a wonderful stay at Urja - we were six people, two kids, a cat and a dog and everyone had a good time. Pros: - Beautifully designed villa, especially the ground floor and penthouse bedrooms - Two swimming pools, one attached to the ground floor bedroom and a common one in the open area - Property is enclosed from all sides so it's safe to leave your pets to roam free across all floors - The food cooked by the in house cooks is very good, though we had some issues (see "Cons") - The massage was amazing Cons - Unfortunately we had a to face a very long power cut in the area and the inverter also couldn't work beyond 7-8 hours so we had to spend a night with no power - One of the cooks didn't show up on one of the days and we had to arrange food deliveries Although we faced the issues listed above, the caretakers at the Villa (Vinod, Anil, Sunil) and the support team at Saffron Stays (Ashish and Yash) were available to provide help whenever needed and they even refunded part of our stay afterwards to compensate for the inconvenience we faced. Hence, despite these hiccups I would highly recommend this Villa and hope to visit this or another SaffronStays property in the future.

    Our stay was great, the property interiors are amazing we loved it however from the outside it does look a but non inviting, the care takers are good and son is the cook 😀 the villa by itself is great with 2 pools and each room gets their private space. We enjoyed our stay though the surrounding is still developing. Perfect if you wanna spend a quality time with family and friends and you don't care about the outside view. We had a fabulous family get together!

    Had a lovely experience at Urja with our family of 5 and our fur baby. Been there for only one night but came back home completely rejuvenated. The delectable food, relaxing spa experience and a refreshing waterfall with an aesthetic decor of the house was worth it! Shall surely go back for a longer stay…
