Big House, great view but poor service

3.9/7
Posted 24 Oct, 2017

We had been to Lavasa for 2 nights and 3 days post Diwali in a group of 11 people (8 adults and 3 kids) Given below are the pros and cons: . . Positives:. 1. Timely check in/check out 2. Big house 3. Great view 4. Soft spoken staff Negatives:. Towels not replaced the second day The house did not look very clean. Felt dusty all the time. And even the mopping and sweeping of the house happened in the afternoon (second day) after requesting the staff to do so Kitchen has very limited utensils/plates. If the house can accommodate so many people it even needs to have more number of plates The care taker's kids were roaming around in the house giving us a feeling as though we have come to stay in their house. Did not give us enough privacy 5. The utensils/plates used by care taker and the guests were the same. There were no separate plates kept for the guests and it all looked old and worn out 6. As we are not quite satisfied with the cleanliness and kitchen hygiene we decided to eat our dinner out on Day 2. As we came back and were parking the car we saw that the care taker's kids were being fed food in our living room while watching television. As we entered the house the entire ground floor was stinking of Fish that they had prepared for themselves. We being vegetarians could not stand the smell at all. And we were shocked to know that they prepared non veg in the same kitchen using the same utensils in our presence. I understand they have their preference of food but would at least expect them to use a separate kitchen to cook their food. Especially being a vegetarian it was so difficult to stay in there. We asked them to open all the doors and spray room fresheners so that we could enter in 7. The washroom had dirty footprints of kids when we checked in. Has to be the care taker's kid's or could be the previous guests which points out that cleaning standards have not be maintained Suggestion to the owner:. Such a big house but no entertainment options. Could easily accommodate few indoor game like fuss ball, carom, board games, ice hockey, etc Have stayed in many properties in the past in India and abroad and this stay was definitely not up to the mark.

Saffron stay review

3.9/7
Posted 9 Apr, 2017

Location is too far from main city road to reach destination is very bad condition. Rooms are good but do not expect any hotel kind of service. Location is difficult to trace not suitable at night time journey. Kids get bored go only if you are not with kids and only couples as kids will get bored.

5.1/7
Posted 27 Nov, 2016

Amazing view. Complete chill. Good vibes. Good time guaranteed. Highly recommended. More the number of people, the better Staff (caretaker couple) was polite and cooperative. I am surely going to book more weekend stays with saffron stays going by this experience.

Best way to experience Lavasa!

6.9/7
Posted 20 Oct, 2016

The villas are nicely done up, the caretakers are very polite and hospitable. They make simple, homely food. But the best part is the absolutely stunning view! You can see the lake and lavasa city below. The sunrise is breathtaking and the best way ti enjoy that is a stroll through the foggy roads with waterfalls trickling down the mountainside.

This villa screams "chill"

6.4/7
Posted 28 Jul, 2016

This is one of the most chilled out places to be at in Lavasa. The planned hill station is exceptionally clean and serene to be. Apart from its water sports activities and nature trails, the one thing we enjoyed the most during our two day stay was this villa. It is on a hilltop and therefore, the drive is slightly difficult, but the view is worth it. You can see the whole city from its first floor. There'd be due in the garden, clouds around you and you'll face a breathtaking sunrise in the morning with birds chirping all around. The four bedrooms are spacious and have ACs. The bathrooms also have geysers so you don't have to worry about warm water or anything. The housekeepers are amazing people and take care of you very well. They have huge windows all around the villa and it's just cherry on the top. You'll feel relaxed as soon as you enter this place. They also have board games stacked over there, so that you can have fun all the time. We spent the whole night playing twisters and UNO.
