Away from the town this place is truly heaven on earth. This is must see before you die. People who are travelers should definitely visit this place. The drive to this place is beautiful. The cottages, the over all experience, the food I must say is very different too. The view is just perfect. You will know when you wake... More

This may be a dated review, but the only thing I would write up would be WOW. You have to experience this place to admire the solitude and the wonderness of this amazing place. The trek from the parking lot to the cottage area is pretty and well worth the effort. This is an ideal place for team outings, team... More

I've been searching..for a lot of things..a long time. Being an avid traveler there aren't many areas that I've not yet explored. More than that, I'm a traveler who picks out nuances. I don't crib but I hold a strong opinion if things aren't right. I wondered if there was anything I could fault this place with & can only... More

This resort is a complete alternative to anything one has been to for holiday earlier. Several Indian style cottages, each at some meters from others, with minimum "modern" facilities, set amidst high mountains, trees laden with ripe fruits inviting visitors to pluck and eat them as much as one's tummy can take, air at its purest, staying here is an...

My husband and I and our young daughter discovered Sonapani off the internet 3 years ago, and have been back every time we have been in Kumaon. Located about 50 km/2 hours from Nainital, you have to drive through a relatively secluded region, before you turn onto a small motorable track. Then it is a 30-minute walk through orchards: the...

What a breathtaking view. WOOOOOOOW Simple place with home made food ... yummy. Staff is really warm. Night they used to... More

I visited Sonapani 2 summers back. I can still close my eyes and go back to the place. I hope the Govt. is never able to complete the road leading to the resort and the last kilometre or so remains a walking track. The lack of road, sound of motors and horns and smoke was a high point of my... More
