I spent three amazing weeks here with my partner and son and a friend who joined us. The setting is spectacular. The Kumaoni food is amazing, and the cooks are very inventive, changing the menu often. The highlight is the dessert, which we waited for, mouths watering, each meal. A close second is the organic bread, baked fresh every day... More

We stayed with our 21 month old daughter for 3 nights at himalayan village( now we feel its too less days). We are a frequent traveller and trekker. This was one of the best stay we have ever had. The place is cozy and full of warmth. Ashish, Deepa, Vanya and Aru (Jhumroo too.. ) are like family now. In... More

I stayed with friends for 9 days at Sona Pani. Ashish & Deepa welcomed us like family. Top notch food & service from Sundeep and the rest of the boys. The walks in the area are enough to keep you amused (and fit!) for months. Be sure to visit the 11th century temple to Shiva when you have a day... More

This is a place tucked away in a heavenly mountain which is trying hard not to be a thought of, as a typical resort or a hotel. Everything at the property tries to communicate that to you. It's strictly for lovers of nature and more so of Himalayan mountains. Its a large undisturbed green patch of mountain surrounded by excellent... More

Don't get frazzled by the narrow access road - it's wide enough, just about, for a Tavera, but call ahead to ensure there is no vehicle coming from the opposite direction! And anyway, this is just for the last three odd kilometers before you reach Sonapani. Ashish and Deepa run a very charming resort, but dig deeper and you discover... More

Sonapani experience is difficult to put in words! You have to be there to feel it! it is more than a beautiful, reclusive, tranquil place. Guess, it is a state of mind! right from the view to food to jungle to countless nature walks, it is an amazing experience! it will make you think whether you were really made for... More

Calm, Quiet, Serene, Beauty, etc are the perfect words to describe this excellent property nestled in the lap of Kumaon region. We stayed here for 3 nights and the property itself had enough to offer with nearby treks, Almora view, food and nature. The Owner, Mr Ashish makes it a point to give personal attention to his guests and is... More

I dont know where to start from. Tucked away in one corner of Satoli, this place is sheer bliss. There is an energy in this place that can only be experienced and not explained. Sonapani is not for those looking for a luxurious holiday with a TV, butter-chicken or a bar. Or Room Service. Or a Hair Dryer in the... More

This is a long overdue review...13 months back when my husband and I wanted to get away, along with our then two year old, from the hustle bustle of Delhi we chose Sonapani for our small holiday. At that time we hardly had an inclination as to what it would be like. However, what it turned out to be was... More
