As mentioned, the retreat of Woods At Sasan is the ideal venue for select gatherings, especially weddings. Our speciality is hosting and organising Biophilic Weddings. With environmental awareness on the rise, an increasing number of couples would like to ensure their weddings are memorable but still environmentally friendly. A typical wedding can generate an enormous amount of wastage both in terms of physical material as well as a large carbon footprint.
That’s where Woods At Sasan in a pathbreaker with the Biophilic Wedding. Our open lawns, natural landscaping and abundance of trees are the perfect venue for intimate gatherings of friends and family. We ensure that every aspect from the wedding pavilion to decorations is exquisitely crafted, locally sourced, recyclable and 100% sustainable. We also offer a completely organic, customisable, farm-to-table menu for the occasion.
How is your hotel an ideal location? Something about the actual location? In a forest etc?
Woods At Sasan is situated in the Sasan Gir forest and offers a refreshingly nature-rich environment, a breather compared to city venues. There are plenty of open and green spaces, thickets of shade providing trees and a host of birds and insects for a nature immersive experience.
The retreat is well connected by air, train and road from airports at Ahmedabad, Rajkot, Keshod and Diu. Depending on which airport guests fly in from (Keshod is the nearest), the retreat can be reached after a scenic drive.
In terms of design and architecture, Woods At Sasan is built using local, natural, non-toxic, reclaimed and re-usable materials selected to minimize concrete use and carbon-footprint. Spread over 16 acres, the 38-key property has ~280 mango trees of six different varieties. The retreat has 11.5% of the building footprint, and 30% of the total built-up is a semi-open area making it an ideal place to host comfortable open-air and energy saving gatherings.
In addition, we offer nature and historical expeditions and help curate the event from pre-wedding parties to the honeymoon making it a one-stop wedding destination.

The menus at the 4 restaurants at Woods At Sasan offer a diverse range of dishes as well as culinary experiences. Swadesh, for example, offers a delicious Gujarati thali, while Terracotta features pan-Indian dishes as well continental food and a selection of South-east Asian dishes. The open-air Alfresco offers wood-fired pizzas, antipastos and sandwiches while the poolside Mango bar is the place for smoothies, shakes and health drinks.
In case a guest has a specific request for dishes from a particular culinary tradition, the team at Woods At Sasan will arrange for a curated meal to fit the request.
We also offer the first-of-its-kind Sattvic nutritional meal-plan making us India’s 1st nutritional retreat based on sattvic lifestyle principles. The multi-sensorial nutritional plan promotes food habits that are pure, essential, natural, energy-giving, conscious and honest, synergising our energies and resonating perfectly with our circadian rhythms. Wholesome, bountiful and life-enhancing, each dish on the plant-based Sattvic Meal Plan is made from fresh, seasonal, locally sourced, and organic produce, with most of it grown in-house in the Edible Garden.
Customized and curated packages for weddings as per client’s choice is a must these days. How do you manage and strategize to fulfil each and every wish of your guest?
At the time of booking Woods At Sasan for the wedding, a member of the team liaises with the guests to understand their requirements for the event and explain the full palette of curated experiences that Woods At Sasan offers.
We help the guest connect with event organisers and can also liaise with them to create the type of wedding props, decoration and mandap that they require. For sustainable biophilic weddings, we use locally sourced products and services to reduce packaging and travel costs, lowering the carbon footprint while also helping the local economy grow. For example, using local arts and crafts or textiles for the wedding décor. We facilitate venue specific events – for example, a wedding in the wilderness could include an early morning safari in the forest as the highlight, followed by a sit-down Indian dining experience on local earthenware, and performances by local artisans for wedding ceremonies. We help our guests curate a bouquet of experiences that suit the mood, the people and the event.
