Surrounded by plum orchards, that drop ripe fruit at your feet, home made jams and preserves and cakes, family dogs, hammocks and bonfires, and even a resident leopard; Sonapani was right out of an Enid Blyton. It gives you as much privacy as you need with no two cottages infringing on each other's space. It also gives you company with... More

Lovely in the spontaneous spiritual ambience were four days (September 24 to 27, 2015) of rejuvenating, spent at Sonapani Himalayan Village. Wouldn't over-spend words to appreciate the most convenient and homely comforts extended to us during our stay at well laid-out wooden cottages sans glamour of modern hotel trickeries, by our hosts - candid couple Deepa and Ashish - and...

We stayed at Sonapani for three nights, and were rewarded with a fantastic view of the Himalayas! It's incredibly peaceful up here with not much else to do but enjoy the views and the mountain air. The hosts were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. And the home-cooked food was a particular highlight...

Tucked away on a rugged road behind the Satkhol Ashram gate, is this gem that offers ecologically built and beautifully decorated cottages in a forest carefully nurtured by Ashish and Deepa. The meals are sumptious and they often organise cultural events like the 'Mafia' I recently participated in - a three-day festival in which film makers and poets expose their... More

Very good place to visit for a holiday. I visited it for a film festival, and stayed at Da-naantin resort, where we were served good food, three meals a day, with comfortable accommodation.I enjoyed the serene beauty of the hills.

Visited Sonapani in the beginning of July with a group of friends. I fell in love with the place immediately. Everything of the resort had a personal touch of the extremely hospitable and friendly hosts. The small landscape details made with used bottles etc. is really appreciable. The whole resort was full of fruit bearing trees. The location is great,... More

Whenever I look for places to stay during my vacations, I always have this thing in mind that it shouldn't be very crowded but at the same time, it should be very clean. Until I visited this place, I always used to be disappointed. I totally cherished each and every minute I spent here with my parents. I am really... More

There are very rare properties or home stay in India which are true reflection of it's owner. Sona Pani really leads in this category. This 5 star property is in the heart of himalayas, away from the rush of cities. One of the most amazing fact remains that ashish (owner and resident) has spent little on advertising or marketing and... More

Great relaxing place with wonderful hosts like Ashish and Deepa. Well appointed rooms with scrumptious healthy food in the lap of nature.....couldn't ask for more. My kids took an instant liking to Jumroo (their very friendly dog) and spent most of the evening playing with him. All in all an ideal place to relax
