“A Peaceful Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

To begin with, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful throughout our stay. There infectious smiles and sweet gestures made our trip more pleasant. This is a place for the nature-lovers and the ones who enjoy a serene environment with the sounds of chirping birds and the sight of trees all around. The room were really good and matched the surroundings. Low lighting and the wood-work added to the romantic ambiance. The organic farm in the resort is a treat. They have a grand collection of birds, which add to your experience. A must visit place for those who want to take refuge in the lap of nature, away from the hustle bustle of the cities.

The resort is situated far from the ever increasing maddening crowd and hustle bustle of the city of Dehradun, Uttranchal on way to Village Bidhauli (Off Chakrata Road). Has variety of spacious well appointed rooms set up ad mist a jungle environment. Thou the roads while approaching at times are narrow and at times rough but are forgotten when you finally arrive at the resort.

The place is full of greenery and you can hear and see various kinds of birds. The resort has its own mini zoo housing certain rare bird species. You are sure to get up in the morning (only if you are a nature lover) hearing various birds chirping. Food served is home like and of your choice if you request in advance. It has a common dining area, a well appointed bar, spa with, sauna and traditional Ayurveda massages by trained male and female masseurs from south. lot of open space to sit around and enjoy in the lap of mother nature Staff are friendly and genuinely keen to serve you.

Room Tip: Visit this place only if your love nature, want to unwind and relax. Any room will be fine depending...

The environs of Vishranti were always a panacea to the soul...now gourmet Continental Food and freshly picked organic salads from the home nursery are a panacea to the body! The newly installed heating facilities made January a rather warm experience! Nature's lap just got even more comfortable and welcoming.

I made to Vishranti during the late evening at around 5.30 p.m. and the sun was settling down, The lights of the whole area was being lit when we arrived.

We were greeted by very sweet and welcoming staff who showed us our room to be precise the room of the the king title Araam which had a huge bathroom with a Jacuzzi fitted in it, although could not make use of it during this time of the winter but would surely love to be there during the summer.

This place is ideal for people who want to run away from the every day running around of our lives. No horns no pollution just pure nature and the voices you hear in the the jungle as this resort is located far from the concrete jungle.

I did not get a chance to meet Mr. Mike who has been very dedicated in developing and decorating this place. A great restaurant and a wonderful in house dining experience. Brigadier's bar and Goldy's pub are once again very delicately decorated with old artifacts and the mix of the west.

An amazing collection of international birds at least I have not seen so many together at one place.

A whole area dedicated to an organic farm with the aroma of fresh vegetables growing around you.

The restaurant service needs a little reformation as preparation time in about 45 mins of which we were prepared as were told by previous visitors.

Be prepared to be welcomed into a place which has a blend of the royals as the rooms proudly speak of the same.

Room Tip: The room by the name of Araam connect to the the restaurant downstairs so I felt it was quite conven...

Wow! That's the way I would like to begin. An unexpected treasure awaited us. The stay in the vishranti suite along with the serenity of the place was truly calming. With the gentle chirping of the birds, it was a real treat to experience the surroundings. And what to say of the decor!! So tastefully and meticulously planned. The 19th hole pub was a visual treat. The staff are extremely kind and informal. The food is good made to your taste. It is a great place to take long walks. Do not expect the typical service of a five star hotel . It is a different experience and a star in its own right. At least a two night stay is recommended.

Room Tip: Stay in the suites. They are very stylishly made.

We, 2 families, drove from Gurgaon early morning in 2 cars with an idea of reaching there in the afternoon as the total distance to be covered is approx 250kms. But it took almost 10 hrs to reach there due to road condition and location map was not clear. Once we reached there, it was an unforgettable experience. A soothing calm and relaxing environment away from the noisy and polluted cities. Since there is limited mobile/net connectivity we were able to spend our time in a very relaxing atmosphere. The personal property belonged to Mr. Michael Dalvi former Cricketer and the place was beautifully done. The staff were very friendly. The cuisine was not elaborate and the food choice was limited . The room and attached bathrooms and toilets needed lot of makeover and repairs. The electrical points were burnt and dangling dangerously and hope they have fixed by now. The spa experience was good and we would love to visit the place again. The organic garden, variety of exotic birds and gerberas garden are a treat for the guests staying there. Overall a good experience.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms are better in every sense.
