We visited the resort on the new years eve of 2012. Before starting the trip, the main attraction for us was the road trip from Delhi, leading through Merrut, Rourkee, Dehradun, Massourie, Dhnaulti and then Kanatal. One the way back, it was Chamba, Tehri (a bit off the route but worth vising because of Tehri dam), Hariawar, Rourkee, Merrut and Delhi (around 1,200km). All our expectations were from our road trip and somehow our expectations from the resort took a backseat.
We indeed had a very good time reaching the resort through this beautiful route and we thought we got our money worth till we reached the resort.
We were welcomed at a big reception area, leading to a huge dinig room, a small well done smoking room/bar with a small library. Also from the same area, you can get the elevator which leads to the other portions of the resorts (the guets rooms, the game room, gym, spa). We had a warm welcome and were lead to our room which was very spacious and well done. Though this was good enough, I wished there was a vallet to take care of my parking after driving so long.
Through our stay of two nights they hosted two difgferent parties and both of them were pretty good. The last party was a lunch hosted at an apple orchard which was a kilometer trek through the biodiversity area and it was wonderful. Their regular lunch/dinner/breakfast was also pretty good. The dining area overlooked the hills and its a beautiful view from there. Though the resort is on the other side of the hill from where you can see the Gangotri range, but itss just a walk away so I didnt missed much.
Also, I have heard that these guys specialize in spa therapies which I didnt take any. They also have a heated indoor swiming pool but I found it too overcrowded since everybody wanted to be in it.
In all, I think its a good resort, with a good service, great food and a very nice location. If you get a chance dont miss on this one.
