Reviewed April 24, 2014

I went with my family in March 2013. we stayed for 2 nights and our stay was very good. We stayed in the Cottage. The view is amazing specially in the night when the surrounding area is all lit up. Mr. Thakur and his staff made us feel very welcome. The food was also good. Would love to visit again preferably in the fruit season and see the trees come to life.

Thanedar was the first of our halt on the trip organised for us by banjaracamps.com. Our tour was Thanedar, Kalpa, Kaza and Sangla. So it was that we went to Thanedar from Chandigarh. The location where Banjara Resort is located is absolutely spot o beautiful. When we reached the resort, on 8th October 2013, we realised that we were the only guests at the place. Since the trip was already reserved earlier, we were put up in a room on the first floor of the resort. We actually had a choice of sleeping wherever we wanted The whole resort was openh to us. We were warmly wecomed by the staff. As we walked down to the resort, we started falling in love.

Immediately on reaching the place, the manager welcomed us, and arranged for hot tea n biscuits. This erally refreshed us after the journey. After checking into the room, we freshened up and started towards the dining room. Even though we were the only people, just me n my wife, the buffet spread was quite good. There was plenty of apple juice ( fresh) , The staff is the epitome of courtsey.
They were alert enough to our needs, and very helpful too. Mr Bittu Sharma - The manager then gave us tips of what we could do, the local trek that we could do , what little sight seeing can be done etc.
We were there only for one day, but we wished we could haqve been there for a couple more days just to relax a little more.

But on our next trip to HP, Thanedar is very much on our list. More importantly - Banjara Resorts.

Room Tip: The log room is a good option. Else, you can take in the suite on the first floor for a better view...

Stayed here in August and have been wanting to write a review for long...this is a place which will surely make u feel at home..if I were to showcase to the world what Himachal or himachali hospitality is then this will be my choice in HP...having stayed in Oberoi Wildflower and properties similar I can certainly say this, though both are two different segment properties and am not putting them in comparison..what a high quality food..you guys really made me eat so much...I am not able to put my experience into words..but let me assure you as avid traveller..one will love it 100%..all the best to the team at banjara..

First about the place: Thanedar is located 20 Kms from Narkanda on a road so quite that you may not find another vehicle for few KMs altogether but the roads are all good and are in excellent conditions. It's a very small village with population no more than 400 people. Very few shops are there which sells almost everything of daily needs.

Banjara camps @ Thanedar are situated amid the apple trees. When we travelled there last week, apples were still on the trees and we were actually surrounded by apples. This is a very nice place to be in if one wants to enjoy the nature and its beauty. Our idea of vacation was to relax and do nothing and this was the perfect place for it. There are some 80 steps which one would have to take down before reaching the place.

Though there are activities to do at the hotel but we chose to sit idle, relax, read few books, and play few games like chess, Table Tennis and Ludo!! There is good collection of books available in the library. I could even find a Nat Geo magazine from year 1960!!

The rooms are spacious and provide an excellent view of the valley. We stayed in the log hut which has a nice balcony to sit in and enjoy the tea/coffee. It also has an attic which both I and my daughter enjoyed the most. The rooms are clean and well maintained.

The food is homely and the service team there would not hesitate to walk the extra mile to delight its guests. Mr. Bittu Sharma is a soft spoken guy and guides one well about the sightseeing options. Mr. Thakur, who owns and manages the property is a nice gentleman and ensures that guests have an excellent experience

Overall I would say that this is an excellent property with all the amenities available at an excellent location.

Room Tip: The Log Huts are the best option as they provide an excellent view and are spacious

We stayed here for one night en route to the Banjara camp in Sangla Valley. The views were amazing and the food (breakfast, lunch and dinner) was fantastic. All meals and afternoon tea are included in the cost of the room. They have a bonfire in the evening and serve delicious soup while you enjoy the stars coming out. Because of the limited number of rooms, the atmosphere was very cosy and quiet.

The service was impeccable. The host came out to greet and talk to everyone, eating in the dining area and sitting by the bonfire. The rest of the staff were extremely helpful. Everyone was busy sunup to sundown, but there was never any trouble getting someone to help you.

I loved my stay at Thanedar!

Room Tip: Try to ask for an upstairs room, which has slightly better views.
