“Gr8 Place.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

The staff was very friendly, helpful and polite. The food was simply awesome, not even once during the stay,the menu was repeated.We had everything from Italian to bbq.The little trip to the sister property was really nice and fun.I stayed in the room called the secret garden, which was large and spacious,it looked right at the small lawn and was next to the sitting and dining area.The steep road from the main gate to the parking can be a challenge if arriving with a vehicle.The overall experience was amazing, the property is defiantly the best in the region.

Believe me... Soulitude will exceed all your expectations... It's a homelike five star boutique hotel -the best hotel I have ever stayed in, no doubt. We stayed in a suite called Bliss which was HUGE in size and really nicely done with a lot of cute details. It had big windows with amazing views to the surrounding mountains. It even had a skylight so you can actually sleep in your comfortable bed under the stars.... The bathroom was also great with a barrel basin and all. Another nice thing was that there was a separate area where you can store your luggage. We also saw other rooms -and every single one of them was different from the others. But one thing in common; all of them were just great.
The whole hotel is built in a way that you really feel like arriving home. You can watch tv or dvd's or just hang around in cozy common areas and borrow books or board games.
The manager and the rest of the staff is also great. Always available and ready to make your stay perfect.
And the food... words just can't do justice to it, you need to taste it! On our last night there the hotel organized a really mouth-watering barbecue party on the terrace (instead of a normal buffet dinner). All the guests got together and I think everybody made a lot of new friends.
The hotel grows their own organic vegetables and fruits and you can roam around and actually eat plums, peaches and apricots from the trees.
The only word to describe Soulitude is AMAZING.

'One of the hottest summers in Delhi' screamed the ToI headlines in June 2012, things got so bad that even the schools extended their vacations for a week. So we did what any brain fried dilliwaala would do - packed our bags, strapped in the kids and drove out for the hills really early on a weekday. 7 hours later we were at 7000 ft above sea level turning into the quiet entrance of Soulitude in Gagar, Ramgarh. My wife actually thought the descent into the cottage was not motorable! It's just a little steep for the usual city driver.

The beauty of the cottage and hillside took our breath away, not to mention the crisp mountain air and moderate temperatures. To enumerate some of the delights of our 4 day stay - good food, barbeque on the deck one evening, wonderfully done up rooms - Master's Touch and Bliss, fresh peaches and plums from the garden, a village walk and the very hospitable staff. You don't need to carry your own books, music or movies, the library is stocked with all kinds of literature and books and magazines on travel, interiors, management, finance and the like. There's a large contemporary DVD collection sitting by the side of Video Cassettes from the old days and an IPod loaded with more songs than you'd care for!

The well decorated theme rooms have magnificent views of the Himalayas, though you do need to be lucky with the mist to get a clear sighting of the peaks. It's a good idea to leave the blinds open in the night, not only can you see the stars very bright and clear, the sunrise in the morning is great as well.

The manager Prithviraj took good care of us, he even assigned one of the young staff members to watch over our toddler as we enjoyed the meals served in the dining area. The Chef is capable and enthusiastic, served us a good range from the old delhi home cooked meal with tasty achaars and chutneys to pastas and sizzlers.

Downside - none, go for it!! We'll probably go again in the winter to experience the snow.

Room Tip: 'Bliss' has two views, one of forest, one of the hills and couple of skylights for star gaze...

Recently i visited Soulitude with my wife for a two night getaway from delhi. Usually it is my wife who writes reviews for us but this place and the experience... compelled me to post a review on Trip advisor... In a word this place is 'awesome'... The rooooms... ahhh... those roooms... Each and every one has a breathtaking view... and the attention to details would put a top 5star hotel to shame... gorgeous to say the least... the beds are comfy and the bathrooms will not disappoint even a seasoned hard nose traveler. Food is served in a common dining area and is much like home cooked food if you employ a full time chef... If god is in the details then he surely resides in soulitude... To elucidate... the day i was checking out i saw my car was being cleaned by one of the hotel staff... Initially i thought this was a special courtesy for my because i knew the owners... but then i realised that all cars belonging to guests checking out were being cleaned as matter of courtesy... now anyone with a passion for road trips understands the value of the freshly cleaned car at the beginning of a drive... Now need i say more....

a big thanks to all of the team for a wonderful time at Soulitude. We couldn't have been looked after any better. The location is wonderful, truly in the middle of nowhere and beautiful views. The staff very attentive, the rooms gorgeous (we stayed in the Master's Touch) and it really is a lovely place to go and do very little except relax. The food was very nice although we did have to ask for more Indian food but nothing is too much trouble.
The only very slight downside for us was that we were the only guests staying at the hotel and for us, the attention of the staff was a little too much. We were around a lot as my boyfriend was not feeling well but being watched while you eat can feel a little weird and I think because the staff are lovely, they don't need to try quite as hard.

As i try to descibe my visit to this amazin place, the thoughts and the wonderful memories outrun the words needed to descibe this experience. Soulitude is a home away from home...rather a dream home for me...!The complete place is so thoughfully done up with beautiful artifacts all over....The toad welcoming at the door, beautiful wall paintings, awsome lamp shades, the colourfully done up ceilings, the brightly tiled washrooms....every room special in its own way. I loved the library and the internet sitting room with its quietness and serenity. The skylights captured the sun in the daytime and sparkled the stars in the room at night. The food was equivalent to a home cooked meal which my kid enjoyed so much that my happiness grew manifold...I think i must have clicked every colourful potted plant outside the dining area and the toads around and have them saved as beautiful memories. When i could make myself come out of the extraordinary interiors, there was this beautiful landscape view awaiting....the trees laden with fruits, the trek down to the ramgarh market.....all so amazin...a relaxin yet an engaging vacation....and last but not the least, the people around who take care of every small need and make the stay so very comfortable. Plan to repeat this wonderful experience soon..!!!!
