    We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful property. The interiors are aesthetically designed with glass facades on three sides which allow you to enjoy the views of the outdoors whichever way you turn. The meals were delicious. The staff was amazing - polite, helpful but unobtrusive. Made us feel very comfortable and welcome. Ganesh is a wonderful cook and Arvind is very helpful. Even Saffron Stays staff (Lohit) kept in touch all throughout offering useful suggestions. Good family break in very calm surroundings. Suggestions: Can keep a few indoor board games or even a table tennis option.

    Good Villa but i feel its bit overpriced as it’s compact from inside and only two King beds with two bedroom so practically comfortable for 4pax. The staff is amazing and very supportive they serve u great food as per your choice and are always on toes to serve the guests. My car had battery issue which too the staff fixed it. 5-star for the complete staff. The pool area is fabulous and the garden area too. View from the villa is awesome. Note: please be clear with the generator charge in advance as after paying such huge amount for stay and meal they expect us to pay for generators fuel too, and if it is a small amount then it’s ok but during my stay as electricity was issue the charges were calculated to 8000rs for fuel and saffronstay was asking owner to manage and owner was asking the staff to manage with guest. This was something very weird. And staff were in awkward situation with guests.

    The caretaker's attitude wasn't correct and he denied everything in first go. When we pay 80-85k for 2 night.. Least we expect is proper food and polite n helpful staff. It was very disappointing. Also, if there is no electricity, how can saffronstays expect guests to pay. It was shocking that after paying 85k, we are expected to pay separately for generator. Saffronstays doesn't care about their service level and is running only for money. Horrible it is. Will never opt for saffronstays again in future.

    we did have a wonderful time at the villa .The cook Ganesh was rude to us few times since he didn’t have his help in the kitchen as they were on a leave so that approach was not correct , they should have hired more ppl or not taken our booking...
