Room was average looking at the rates they charge. Food was also average :). Go for a la carte. But customer service is good. And views from the hotel is very good and at night it looks great to see the mountains with lights. Good point is they provide complimentary ride to the lake and back. We stayed here for... More

I had the good fortune of staying at the Naini Retreat recently in July as part of the art of living advance course. I found the place aesthetically brilliant, food awesome and the view fantastic. The most remarkable feature of the property was the complete absence of mosquitoes and slush, which despite the torrential rains made movement very easy. The... More

Visited Nainital for 4 nights for a Silence retreat at Naini Retreat- an amazing old world heritage property, probably the most quiet and mind blowing location in Nainital. The luxurious rooms have breathtaking views of the Naini lake and the Himalayas, and are well equipped with modern amenities. The hotel staff is welcoming and made our stay memorable. The buffets...

After lot of research we finally booked this hotel through Ibibo (got 25% off) for 3 nights. We were 5 couples (with kids) and this was a perfect place for a peaceful vacation. Deluxe rooms are pretty spacious, in fact bigger than superior room (which has a better interior). Food quality was decent but very limited variety, needs improvement on... More

We had an amazing stay at The Naini Retreat. The staff was extremely cordial and helpful in all aspects. They organized a specil dinner for us with a spectacular view of the Naini Lake. It was a brilliant first evening. The breakfast is a superb spread. In addition, the lake and Boat house club are 5 mins walk from the... More

Overall the stay was very nice, v good hospitality. Just that the bed provided in the superior room is very small in width, so small that two normal people would fit in very tightly... Choose deluxe room, they are cheaper and also have bigger sized bed Rest all was great.. Would stay again

We had a company conference for 3 nights at Jim Corbett, where we stayed in a hotel owned by the same group - Corbett Hideaway. We had an excellent experience there, and had scheduled a day trip to Nainital, where we were supposed to have lunch at Naini Retreat. All bookings had been done 6 months in advance, and this...
