This is a very late review. We had visited the Mountain Resort or popularly known as Khali Estate a couple of years ago. It is still etched in my mind. The wood and concrete cottages are perfect. The decor is simple yet classy and gives a warm feel. The huge glass window gives one of the most beautiful views of... More

Beautiful Resort, with full amenities - thank goodness, no telephone and no television! We loved the place. The staff was very eager to help. Food was outstanding, cooking staff was willing to provide whatever we wanted. Our special food needs were provided with pleasure. Took guided tours for bird watching early morning- with knowledgable guide. Also did the hiking for... More

The place has an aura, and reminisces of its history of Gandhi Ashram and Nehru Family staying here. The place has no commercial exploitation and so if you are one of those who need a DISCO and TV to survive on all vacations, this is not the place for those. Being in the Forest Region, the place has only beauty... More

Stayed here at start and end of a trek with villageways. The welcome was warm and the service friendly and efficient. It is like stepping back in time to the 50s, so go with it and don't expect super wifi! It's not just for trekkers, seems popular with Delhiites seeking some respite from hectic city life. Special mention must be... More

Tucked away in Binsar, about 30 kms from Almora lies this beautiful property inside the Binsar Sanctuary. Built during the colonial area , it gives a great view of the Himalayan range when the sky is clear. Service is warm and friendly and food excellent, homely but vegetarian. If you want a place to unwind, go for walks and just... More

We stopped there for 2 nights as part of a Village Ways tour, and were very impressed. The staff bent over backwards to meet our every need - being very friendly and efficient. There is a certain 'colonial' feel to the main house, with a lovely open fire warming chilly evenings. The rooms were comfortable, and no 13 allowed us... More

An excellent property middle of the Binsar Sanctuary, it has a history going back to early British times. The place is in somewhat bad state and needs restoration, yet, the place is run with care and the service is top notch. The food, vegetarian only, is fantastic and service betters any five star resort. Definitely a place to unwind in... More

This is great place if you want to get away from the crowd and just relax with beautiful views. The service was just terrific with the staff willing to help in every way possible and go the extra mile. The food though simple was delicious and they will customize it according to your taste and prepare what you want. There... More

We returned to this lovely place for a second time. Last time was with Village Ways, this time just to stay at the resort. We were lucky to spend time with the owner, Mr Pandey, and so got to know about the history of this charming resort, and its association with the Nehru family. Mr Pandey, Keval and the other...
