A long hectic drive through the chaotic states of UP and Uttrakhand is not what I'm looking at when I plan a relaxing holiday; however, upon reaching 'Junoon in the Hills' you're likely to forget what real world is like. This beautiful property situated amidst the hills and valleys of Ranikhet will surely entrap you in its calmeness and serenity... More

If I imagine my dream home and then put it on a hilltop on remote Himalayan countryside I'll probably still fall short of what the team Junoon has created! If you are looking for a place to spend weekend with friends and family this is one offbeat but serious contender. Very well appointed rooms and living room, great vistas, excellent... More

So this comes as a very pleasant surprise, once you have put in the time to take a drive. The place is completely awesome and the care that has been put in getting this up and running is evident from the landscaping and naming of each of the trees to thinking of most of the stuff that would be required...

Finally visited Junoon in the Hills that we had heard so much about. We went with friends and rented the whole place for the weekend. The property is outstanding. Right from the rooms, sitting area, gym, kitchen to the beautifully landscaped gardens all around, everything is just perfect. The food is to die for...the kadhi chawal and lal maas was... More

Okie, the disclaimer comes first.. I am SOOOO impressed with the property that I may tend to go overboard with the review so reader discretion is advised. Also this place is NOT in Ranikhet, but rather high up in the hills in Dharmani village in the middle of nowhere, so if you want to go for outdoor excursions then look... More

Built out of " Passion"( the Urdu word being " Junoon") this place fulfills any dream of a sanctuary in the hills.Peace & tranquility, yet all the comforts of modern living. Privacy is guaranteed by the owner ( obviously through commercial sacrifice) by refusing bookings/ disallowing other parties during your stay! Overlooking the snow range ( Nanda Devi, Trishul, etc.)... More
