“Luxury and solitude in the hills- an unforgettable experience!”
Reviewed May 18, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Crosswinds is located in Gethia, off the main road to Nainital, thus it has a quite hamlet location and is perfect for people wanting to stay at a special place away from the hustle and bustle of the regular hotels. The property is built without expense and the fixtures and fittings are simply of top notch quality. All areas are squeaky clean and there is a lovely deck overlooking a small valley with comfy seating and outdoor music. Food is another hallmark of Crosswinds with the chef preparing scrumptious breakfast, lunch and dinner. The pasta, the salads, the Indian cooking, the breakfast, all of it was special. The staff are unobtrusive and always willing to go the extra mile. The best part about the stay is that you will have the place to yourselves with no other guests, so no unpleasant interruptions! This place is a must-visit and is a year-round best kept secret of the Nainital hills!

“A perfect family vacation”
Reviewed May 18, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

When one plans a vacation the biggest challenge is to find a place that excites all the members of family. Now that is easy to get when you are planning to visit a beach but does not come easy around the hills. This place a very close to Nainital yet is away from the rush of the city. The rooms are spacious and very well equipped. We were 3 couples with 6 kids and I can easily rate this amongst our best holidays. There are plenty of places to see around besides the multiple lakes, some of them are truly fascinating, paragliding was super fun for all of us. Early morning and evening walks will rejuvenate you. The place is big enough for kids to play indoors as well as outdoors. One thing which beats everything lease was the quality and variety of food in the villa. The cook has a class and managed to delight each one of us. From Chinese – Awadhi – Mughlai – Italian – Continental everything was scrumptious. Good to read some books, this place has a good collection of books, spend some quality time with family and forget the chaos we live in.

“Fantastic Experience”
Reviewed May 17, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We had an amazing four days stay at Crosswinds. It's a lovely villa with six bedrooms and looks even better then the pictures. What truly delighted us were four things: the huge elegant living room with great sitting areas, the outside deck with awesome views of the valley, the sooooperb food and service (kudos to the excellent staff) and the fact that the owners made us feel so welcome, in our interactions over the phone. Pack your bags and head to Gethia. Strongly recommended!

“I recommend Cross-Winds BIG time! :)”
Reviewed May 16, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

I am glad that Neha, my wife, chose Cross Winds as destination for a brief holiday in month of January. I must say that there are a few things magical about the place. The moment we checked-in, the place felt like your own home and not a hotel.

Second best thing about the villa (first being the very tastefully done comforting interiors) - is the very homely yet professional staff. We were always left at comfort of no one ever intruding our privacy while being well aware that there are people around to take care of all our needs at all time ensuring optimum level customer service. This too was purely magical!!

Our stay was less than 48 hours and we had the whole villa to ourselves so we spent a lot of time lazying around, chatting, quarreling, watching back to back movies, eating and drinking. Then there was a great variety of music and books to choose from. Am sure Cross Winds will be even better fun with larger groups.

For a Punjabi like me nothing can a better start to the day than being served a perfectly brewed tea and rusks that we enjoyed sipping sitting on clouds covered deck over seeing the hills. Sandwich stuffed with fresh shrubs grown in the compound for breakfast and chicken for dinner were to die for. The chef Bhagat ji, made even the very basic snacks like peanuts taste wonderful. We discovered more and more of magic in his hands over meals that followed.

All-in-all it was a very relaxing trip where we fully indulged in ourselves and ended up doing things to pamper & comfort us that we would otherwise do in weeks.
