    It's a very good property with real good staffs. Food is good and can be a little better but nothing to complain. We had an amazing time as a family and our kids had the best time with so much open space. It's very specious and good for family as well as a group of friends.

    Great villa with wonderful staff and excellent food. On cleanliness, while the accomodation was very clean, the open areas had garbage strewn around - a few additional staff and some training can easily fix this.

    The staff was courteous and available when required. Only faced one issue where we had repeatedly asked them to keep the property gates closed at all times as we had a puppy with us. They forgot to do it a bunch of times. The meals were decent. We like most preparations except the misal pav, which was extremely watery and not prepared well. The property was safe and clean. Only feedback would be to make a better aproach for the cars. We ended up with a puncture because of the gravel path.

    Staff was very helpful and the location and the house is just fabulous Just a Couple of suggestions 1. If something could be done to avoid flies ( we didn’t see any flies on the first day but on second and this day they did bother ) 2. Esp in winter months if soup could be added in the menu

    It’s an amazing place. There are many activities, one big court is there wherein you can play badminton,cricket, basketball any other games.. plus there’s a carrom broad inside the villa, other indoor games are also available like uno cards,chess. We didn’t have meals at the villa as there is no A la Carte menu and food is a bit expensive. Rooms are clean. Care takers are helpful. Great view. Overall a very great experience!! Must visit.

    The house is really good and best is the open area. Staff was cooperative and really good . Only improvment required is cleanliness . Considering its saffron stays property cleanliness, hygiene shud be managed

    This place has the best Panaromic view any property can offer.. Excellent staff .. lovely services provided by Sandeep, Somnath n the entire team . They took care of us and provided very good variety of food. However, the property itself is very basic and it's done up in a pretty ordinary way.. room and bathroom cleanliness could hsve been better in a few ways.. the furniture provided is very minimalistic as compared to the serenity bunglow ( right next to it ) which has the same view . The rooms could have been done up much better to give a better feel like Serenity bunglow Overall great experience coz of the view from the house and the excellent staff and great food . Thanks

    The staff is very hospitable and helpful. They made food as per our requirements and we enjoyed the meals. The property is also beautifully located with amazing views. However the overall maintenance needs to be improved. And the cleanliness also needs to be better. We saw a few cobwebs around. The frames of sockets are loose. The sliding glass door of the living room doesn’t shut fully. These are minor issues but need to be fixed. Overall we had a good experience

    Sudipta (3.8)

    The Zen is a very uniquely designed house with a stunning view. Sitting in the living room with the glass walls, or on the wide porch (which surrounds the building) sipping tea, you see the lake on one side and the hills on the other, woth paddy fields stretching to the horizon. Very, very relaxing. The meals are very simple, and rather overpriced for what you are served. The staff is very sincere, though please do not expect professionally-trained people there. In summary, if a family is looking for secluded relaxation in a modern house nested in a hillside village, Zen it is.

    Very helpful staff. Extremely enthusiastic. Were very kind to the elders in the family. Lovely view and property. One tiny suggestion - addition of a barbecue set-up may make it more fun.

    Great balance of modern architecture with rustic vibes and minimalism. The open surroundings and the airy feel makes the property even more aspacious and comfortable. The food had good variety and great taste. The staff was very helpful and ensured we were comfortable. The place has splendid views of mountains and the lake. Our group and pet enjoyed and had a relaxing time. Thank you!

    Whilst the property was wide and spacious, and boasts of beautiful views, following could be improved upon 1. Cleanliness levels were not up to the mark of the rooms and common areas 2. The pathway leading up to the property has loose gravel and therefore our car got stuck in the sand and gravel. This could be paved and made accessible 3. Lack of availability of proper cutlery during meals (no knives, even not for butter) 4. A kettle/ microwave could be made available so as to be able to heat water/ milk etc. 5. The board game area was messy and cards/ contents were on the floor 6. Hot water is not properly available - at best hot water flows for a couple of minutes and that also after spending 15 minutes adjusting the knobs of the shower.

    Had a good stay, thank you. Certain parts of the villa need detailed cleaning. All Door locks are a pain, please replace for ease. Hot water needs to be checked, not working in one room. Staff boys are good and prompt service. Thanks again for a reaxing time, my family enjoyed.

    The place is amazing, very different from the regular stays. As it’s a new property certain things are missing, like it’s really hot in the afternoon and none of the rooms have an AC, good to visit in Dec -Jan can’t think about visiting in summers. Basic toiletries also kept are non-branded, just kept in plastic bottles. Please improve the basic as the cost you guys take, we at least expect basic stuff. Lastly, the staff is really amazing, polite, & very helpful and the meals cooked by them are very nice, home style.

    Absolutely great stay. We visited Zen for the second time. Sandeep and his team took great care of us. They are amazingly helpful and are great caretakers. The only feedback is that a microwave in kitchen is a must since the food or tea/coffee gets cold due to high wind and hence can be warmed up much easily. Microwave in kitchen is a must.

    Sandeep was a super host for us - Very friendly and helpful. The house is bit far but the travel is totally worth it. View is scenic, weather is chilly/windy and the architecture of the house is awesome. We loved our stay at Zen and would definitely recommend. Just one small issue - no good restaurants nearby.
