“Heaven on Earth / Exemplar for Service Delivery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2012

We arrived at Te Aroha around 12 pm and where immediately brought to the room. All rooms are beautifully furnished, no unnecessary luxury but with a lot of taste. The lobby and the new Cafe Flashback are just stunning.

I have never experienced a better service as in this place. Tips are not favoured only at checkout for the whole team if you wish to do so. Therefore all the service is included and you can perfectly relax why the staff is spoiling you with there amazing ginger lemon team with fresh baked cookies, snacks or a hot water bag for the cold nights.

The food served for dinner in the restaurant was very delicious!

We were making a roundtrip through India and I booked the place to escape the rush and heat of Delhi for sometime. Best decision I have ever made, I would love to come back if it was not so far from Germany...

The only thing we found difficult was the weak English skills of most of the staff. However, there strength seems to be to read your wishes from your eyes so this was after all not a real issue.

All in all, it is a place where you find peace and tranquility. I would have loved to meet the owner Sumant Batra and to compliment him on this great place he has created.

I had read a lot of good reviews about Te Aroha and was desperately waiting to take the plunge myself which happened this month. Barring my journey to and fro from the property there was not a minute thing which was out of place !! A fairy-tale house set in the picturesque and serene hills far from the madding crowd is what awaited me and my wife and the place will make you fall in love all over again !!! Excellent rooms, views, fabulous food, awesome service...I can go on and on about the wonder Sumant Batra and his team has created. Everything was perfect and not even a small thing went wrong during her 2 days stay. Its one of those places wherein you go to fall in love and forget all your worries ...I could live there forever and still can if Sumant employs me ;) Jokes apart, Te Aroha deserves every bit of accolades its got and this can only be experienced by going there. Just to reiterate what I said Sumant, Achieving Excellence might be easy but maintaining it is the real test. All my best wishes to Te Aroha and the team for making it a memorable trip and leaving us wanting for more....Like Arnie....I will be back !!!!!

Room Tip: All rooms are unique and have their own characteristics !!! We stayed in the Front Room and it had i...

We were desperately seeking the cool of the hills in the summers of 2012 - each year we spend a few days away from the crowd and in the hills. Te Aroha was suggested by a friend and business colleague. We left Delhi at 0545 hours and after an endless journey (due to weekend traffic) reached there by sunset. The place is well located on a hill with a view of the peaks.

The lodge/hotel is a ten room property with each room being different and offering different levels of comfort, view etc. The rooms are very well appointed with oil heaters, hot and cold water, comfortable beds, reading material in the sit out rooms, cookies and fresh fruits etc. The staff are simply superb and the Sumant Batra an ex lawyer and his friend and partner Vivek were superb hosts.

We spent two days enjoying the luxury, the hills, birds and the food - the village walk to the old Dhanachuli village was a sheer delight. I am happy to recommend this place to all those who like a comfortable yet simple lodge in the hills. Te Aroha is truly a lovenest,

Room Tip: All the rooms are good - but to enjoy the best of Te Aroha - a montain view room is a must.

We visited Te Atoha with a Belgian couple. Right from the moment we stepped in, we were bowled over. The staff was very courteous, the welcome drink, the decor of the room, the dinner, everything was outstanding. The jungle walk & the village walk was again just amazing. We had been travelling with our friends for about 2 weeks, to different places, staying in different hotels. Sincerely Te Aroha stands out among all. Our Belgian friends share the same views.

It was a lovely, peaceful, beautiful getaway destination. Te Aroha is tastefully done with an eye for details, excellent food, very warm, friendly and courteous staff. Lovely weather, good for quiet walks up the lane, and the view is superb from the hotel. Truly a boutique hotel. It is commendable of the owner Mr. Sumant Batra, to get this lovely haven done up so well in the quaint and peaceful place called Dhanachuli. Thankyou for a lovely holiday.

Picked the hotel as it was in the neighbourhood of our friends house ...and there were a bunch of us tarvelling with kids. Were pleasantly surprised ... lovely location, nice rooms (each one is different), choice of cuisine... but as always for us it was the service that was the real differentiator ... the team led by sumant himself made every effort to take super care of us and to customize every moment to what we wanted. We had a great time and would go again for sure. Its a great place to go to enjoy the weather , the location , quiet walks and the peace and quiet

I have been falling in love with the Te Aroha at the first sight. I have heard about Te Aroha project since August 2010. And now, I have had a chance to spend some days there. My vacation at Te Aroha is truly memorable. Staying at Te Aroha ... I feel love is all around .... I feel peaceful with amazing view from Morning Sun Room.... I am experienced excellent services from Te Aroha Team.... They are caring, well -trained and very friendly.

Te Aroha has a lot of places for yourself.... You can sit in the Swing in the garden.... to feel the wind, the sunshine every morning or every afternoon, to drink a cup of coffee or an India tea, to listen to your own romantic music and to read your favorite book.... Those moments are very special if you come to Te Aroha to escape the busy life in cities....

You can sit in the Swing alone.... Then you can have A minutes Yourself.....

You can sit in the Swing with your beloved one.... You can feel your beloved one in your arms.... and you will respect all moments you have with your loved one....

If the weather is a little cold ... You can come back your room.... There is also a place for you to sit and see the sunset every late afternoon and the lights staring shining on hills in the evening..... You can also stay at Tea Lounge.... or Coffee Lounge.... All those places are very beautiful and peaceful....

If you want to go to some places for tourist.... You can ask Te Aroha team to arrange for you.... During my short stay, I have a lot of village walking.... And I saw many local people in Dhanachuli.... They are very open and friendly.... I tried to use a few Hindi I have learnt from Te Aroha team to talk to them.... And it seems they are happy with this.... They bring me memorable moments

The design of Te Aroha is excellent.... I can see the meaning of every single detail..... They tell me the story of love........... The two trees in the Breakfast Restaurant ...., come out from the Yellow Roof and you will feel they are the one tree if you look at them from the Morning Sun room.... The Blue Sky.... The Yellow Roof..... The Green Trees ....... and the White Wall are perfect color combination..... Those are Te Aroha....

Te Aroha is A Must Visit Place.... and you will fully enjoy your holiday
