Overall an excellent experience. We were a group of four families travelling with our kids. Initially we were little apprehensive about spending our vacations at lesser known destination of Chakrata but one of our friend strongly recommended the place. One thing which touched our heart was the involvement and hospitality of people from nearby village of Korwa. We enjoyed the local folk dance and music organised exclusively for us. We were even accompanied for village visit. One of the kid travelling with us wanted to try horse riding and the staff immediately arranged few horses from the village. We tried our hand at rapplling and flying fox too. There is a small shooting range at the resort where they are teaching the art of shooting to girls from local vilage, we also tried our skills at shooting. The food quality was amazing and the housekeeping of tent was one of the best we have encountered so far. Best part is the team which look after the resort. One of the thing which people should keep in mind when considering this resort is that they have utilized minimum area of land. (On my talk with the proprietor, an IIM Ahmedabad alumnus, I came to know that they are working on a unique concept of "less is more" where they are conceptualizing minimum usage of natural resources and maximum development of shared community resources to provide the most exceptional experience to their clients. We definitely feel that they have succedded in it to large extent. We have strongly recommended them to all of our friend and we ourself plan to visit them many time more.
Note: Staff doesn't allow DJ and any other music system. Though they are always game for organizing local folk dance and music.
