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

We have been meaning to visit Sonapani for almost the last 7 years after hearing numerous reviews from friends and family about the place, but finally managed to stay there only in June this year. A slight detour from the highway leading to Mukteshwar brought us to Sitla which is a quaint little Himalayan village. The narrow driving/ walking track... More

First the bad....nothing really, but if you are faint of heart behind the wheel then the last 2 kms drive to the place is very narrow. Sona Pani is not a place for your average 'tourist' looking for a crowded mall and punjabi dhabas. It is a lone property deep inside an orchard near Sitla, looks almost like the Shire... More

I would love to come back again and again to savor the indescribable holidays we had in this heavenly peaceful abode in the Himalayas. I salute Ashish to have conceived and created this amazing place. Regarding ratings if there was something above excellent, I would have given that too. Added highlight is pet of the family - jhumroo who became... More

Sonapani is like a second home to me. I've been back there eight times in the last ten years. I was there when they were a few months in to operations and I was there in May 2014 ten years later. So much has changed! And all for the better. The forest has regenerated all around thanks to the owner... More
