It was a sudden trip decision and we made it very fast. Our first selection was Van Vilas consider it's location and knowing that we will get a beautiful sunrise view. We had an imagination about the resort and the hospitality we may receive. But I must say what we have got from Van Vilas exceeds all our expectations. Very...

Property is ideally located on the hill adjacent to the lake with beautiful view. Well maintained, courteous staff and delicious food make your stay great. The Owners are also very courteous. Luxurious cottages are the best of the lot.

If you are looking for a place close to nature then you must book at van Vilas..the view , and the surroundings are something to die for. Enjoy the amazing view of the lake from the hotel restaurant. The food in the restaurant took time to come but was amazingly fresh

Pros: 1. Great location. Right in front of Bhimtal lake. 2. Helpful and obedient staff. 3. Reasonable priced rooms. Starting from...

I had stayed here on two occasions, both only for a day for urgent trips. If it is an unplanned trip, this is ok place to have a roof over the head. They are extremely understaffed but I found them courteous. Looks like a Van (forest) literally. Food is better avoided in house. If maintained by an established group, this...
