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...

Spent a couple of very peaceful days of our lives at a place which is far from the madding crowd, where you can smell the fresh morning air while listening to the chirping of all kinds of birds. The resort with its serene beauty is just out of this world. This historical famous Estate is made of sandstone, built in... More

Visited Uttarakhand last month with family and stayed in Khali Estate - Binsar. I must say, it is an excellent place to tranquilize in nature's lap. As of now this is the only establishment in sanctuary where you have electricity connection (which is sometime essential if you are travelling with kids). The estate is very well maintained and clean with... More

Nestled right inside the Binsar sanctuary but tucked away from the main road, this is one heaven!! Pandeyji is never tired in explaining the history- right through Mahatma Gandhi and Nehru's time who have lived here for years!! You get close to 180 degrees view of the Himalayas from here! The cottages come in two levels with the spy route... More

The stay in this property has been better than any other stay in any other hotel / resort anywhere! The perfect peaceful getaway in the lap of nature, with no disturbance of means like TV or radio. This is the only private resort station inside the sanctuary in Binsar, while all the other properties are well over 7-8 kms away... More
