Ramgarh Bungalows is not exactly a hotel. It is a collection of bungalows old and new which makes it a different experience altogether. It is a collection of old and new structures with the oldest one dating back to the late 19th century and the newest one to the 21st. A varied experience.
We traveled as a group of 4 and booked the Cliff House. There are a couple of rooms on the first floor, Ram Kumar and Gaitonde, both excellently done up. The living and dining area is on the ground floor. The living area has excellent views.
I loved the food especially the Indian cooking. The manager Mr. Shailendra SIngh is extremely helpful and a nice person to talk to. He showed us around the old bungalow area which houses their office and a place where they make jams and marmalade. This area is part of Uttarakhand's fruit belt and hence the great supply of fruits throughout the year. The fresh juice s that they serve during breakfast were superb.
You can drive to Mukteshwar which is an hour away and on a clear day you could be able to see the Nanda Devi range.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Own up the Himalayas from colonial British bungalows with bay windows, verandahs and terraced gardens. In the foothills of the Himalayas, The Old Bungalow (1830) and The Writers’ Bungalow (1860) are located in the fruit basket of the Kumaon region. These heritage structures once housed the British – and later the Indian officers as well as their wives – who travelled on horseback and palanquins. The Ashok Vatika was a guest house for outsiders as visitors weren’t received at home, while the Cliff House is a designer’s delight. Vista Villa offers breathtaking views of the valley and Rose Cottage with its private terrace is ideal for a cosy hideaway. Neemrana’s six cottages in Ramgarh offer their own views of the sunrise and sunset, or both – and a new look on life too ! In season, the orchards adjacent to these bungalows, hang with apricots, plums, peaches, pears and apples throughout the summer. Natural Neemrana jams are made here – without preservatives – so that they preserve your health too. Enjoy the company of birdlife and butterflies in the fruit basket of the Kumaon. Sleep that deep slumber which irons out all stress. Live on a peak, or by a cliff or simply in the middle of an orchard. Fireplaces tingling with pine cones in winter. Snow flakes around the New Year. Short strolls to reconnect your legs to your planet. Or longer walks with a picnic basket. Heave your chest, muscle your calves, take all the oxygen back in your lungs. Return when it runs out again. ... more less
