“Perfect Relaxing Weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

"Soulitude by the Riverside". Name explains all.
Beautiful location, fresh air, peaceful and calm. Rooms are really nice, much higher than my expectation of "Village or Rustic Setting".
Washroom with a natural rock and artificial water flowing over it is just fantastic. You would love to spend a good amount of time in Toilet itself :-)
Fresh farm food, reminding my childhood, loved the self plucked Strawberries and walk through the mountain and Stones to reach Parital.
Everything was absolutely fantastic. A dream vacation home for people who are tired of City Life and Pollution"
Manoj you are a good host and Manish has done a wonderful job. Will surely visit again.

Room Tip: Choose Mukt (Suite) or Sahaj (Village Home) i.e. Go for the best of best.

An adventurous walk of 30 min to reach the hotel. No words can define the experience we had. Mr. Manoj was an outstanding host. The food was delicious. Partial, a place worth dying for. Never imagined a place like this, not even in my dreams. Not enough for a day break. Mother nature please call us back.

When we last visited Riverside, it was under construction. We knew it would turn out to be a something special but what we saw was much better than what we had imagined. Manish had taken care of every detail and created a luxurious experience in the most peaceful surroundings on the banks of the river. Manoj did a great job of making us feel at home and showing us the property. The food was outstanding and the service was impeccable. We just had to go back to the breathtaking waterfall and experience the peace and calm right in the midst of nature. We regret not spending a night at the Riverside. But there is always a next time!

Soultiude by the riverside!No words to describe this wonderful property!Me & my husband were here on a 3 night stay at Soultiude by the Himalayas!The manager at SITH had suggested that we should take a half day trip to their 2nd property around 18 kms below in a small cute village called Chanfi.We wondered what lay in store for us on the day!After a lovely scenic drive & a 1km trek to the resort Soulitude by the riverside (as there is no provision for vehicles to go in) there will be a lovely stream of water following u to the property.Once we entered the property we were welcomed whole heart idly by the staff & the I must say the best & the most friendliest manager ever come across Mr. Manoj Latpate.Initially we had a stroll along with Mr. Manoj in the beautiful property among the serene nature.Must say Mr. Manish Chandra & the whole team of Soulitude has a gem of a property in this wonderful location.There are 7 rooms allocated in the property each divided in 3 houses with each room wonderfully setup with an ambience to die for!Mr. Manoj then took us to the properties as called their 'natural swimming pool' .Its a lovely stream of water & a waterfall which runs across the property.One can spend hours sitting & lazing in that area!The property has a wonderful farm where they cultivate their own fresh vegetables!After taking a stroll along the property Mr. Manoj had setup a lovely lunch for both of us & must honestly confess have travelled in most parts of the world but u will be served with the best & the most delicious meal ever!The food served here is yummy & finger licking gud!Thumbs up to the chef!After some rest Mr. Manoj took us for a small adventurous trek a few meters away from the property a place called 'Paritaal'!Am not a trek enthusiast but must say this adventurous trek was worth it!Paritaal is another gem of a place.Once you complete the trek you will come across a large waterfall gushing down from the hills & you can spend hours gazing at the wonderful nature in front of u!You can enjoy your sip of tea at this wonderful place gazing at the waterfall which was served by us by Mr. Manoj!After returning back to the property we were presented a lovely marriage anniversary gift from Mr. Manoj Latpate (one of his lovely creations) which will be preserved in our hearts forever!The whole staff made us feel at home!
There is surely no drawbacks from the property!The only complaint I have is Why couldn't we stay here 2!I am still missing the property once back home!Hope to back here soon :)
No words to thank the whole staff of Soulitude by the riverside & a big thank u to Mr. Manoj Latpate for the wonderful hospitality showered upon us!We will cherish these memories forever :)

We were at the Riverside Soulitude for a day trip but it was so wonderful that we can't wait to get back for a longer stay! The walk along the river is so soothing and when you get to the property it feels harmonious with nature and Mr. Manish is so fortunate to have found it and developed it with love and care.

After the walk we dipped our feet in the river and for a very long time just sat with the sound of the water rushing by with our eyes closed. Then we had a very delicious lunch and then rested for a bit before heading out towards Paritaal - a gorgeous waterfall jutting out of a mountain in the middle of the forest which has created this deep pond, aptly named!

Mr. Manoj is the very dedicated manager who has a smile for everyone and makes sure that each and everyone is being taken care of and gave us a tour of the property and saw us off.

We hope to go back there for an extended time and soon.

On a day visit after a great stay at Soulitude in Himalayas, we set off on a difficult but enjoyable 30 min walk crossing the streams. And the view that awaited us cordoned off all doubts. Nestled in a valley with stream by its side , this one was a sight to behold. Rooms, reception, dining hall, all places have the village theme mixed with south indian feel with contemparary bathrooms. Mr Manoj, an enthusiastic horticulturist cum manager was friendly and took us upstream to "paritaal", most beautiful place i have ever seen.
One word of caution, this place needs physically fit guests.
