We stayed at the Soulitude for 4 nights & 5 days and we cherished every moment of it. From the time of booking the room you get a feel of how well the service would be. Essential information and contact numbers are passed on before your trip starts and we even got a welcome SMS from the property manager Mr. Prithvi on the day of our arrival.
We arrived at the Kathgodam railway station in the morning and took the taxi to the resort. The taxi service (Mr. Nafees) was suggested by the property owner Mr. Manish and we found it to be worth the advice as hill journeys can be troublesome especially in rainy seasons. It took us 1 hour 30 minutes to reach the property and the route via Bhimtal was picturesque and lush green. Upon arrival Mr. Prithvi greeted us and we were transferred to our room in a jiffy.
The room - Master's Touch is rightly sized for a family with a small child and the look is exactly as you see it on the internet. This room is in the main block - ground floor and has better privacy as compared to other room adjacent. It is a Junior Suite which has a projected sit-up area that overlooks Himalayas.
There are loads of things to write about the excellency of the service level. One biggest thing that made the trip great for me was the way the team had put together a surprise birthday party for me on the eve of my birthday during our stay. I could not believe the kind of preparations done and even my wife who had asked for cake and balloons before coming was taken by surprise. The team was awake till midnight and had decorated the whole dining area so beautifully that we were amazed . The cook had especially made a double deck cake for us. You could not stop thanking them for the level of sincere efforts and service the team showcases.
The best part of the trip was that it being a lean season, we had the whole staff and main block for us to enjoy as if it was our home away from home. My daughter enjoyed every nook and corner of the property and was free to be like a child. The staff especially Mr.Vinod was a great help and he made sure we had our food with ease by taking care of our naughty daughter who would run around the property finding new things every now and then.
I did not expect the food would be of such good variety and taste. We had everything from Chinese to Continental and one night we were served crackling sizzlers that were sooo good. Since we were alone, we were tempted to have our breakfasts outside in the garden overlooking the Ramgarh Valley and under the cloud filled sky. The fresh fruit juices - some of which we never had in cities (Buransh flower) were amazing to try.
Overall we enjoyed it more than we had thought and we have a firm belief that this kind of experience cannot be matched by any other hotel property. The service and the staff are the real essence of the property and you would love to come back for more just like us.
