Crosswinds is an awesome place to stay for a weekend getaway. We were there for a weekend with 10 adults and 8 children.

The first thing that strikes you when you enter is the Modern look & feel of the place. Very well built, with a large drawing room area, dining area, a sitting area, a business area and even a Library; a garden and wooden courtyard. The villa has 5 big sized Rooms with Bathrooms and 1 big Bedroom without an attached Bathroom (though there is one just outside its door). Not to forget the balconies with lovely views There are additional Guest Loos on both the floors (you don't have to enter a Room to go). The decor across all rooms are very modern.

The villa location is near the Katgodham railway station (40 min ride and I believer an hours drive to the Airport as well). Its nestled between some high mountains in front and lower hills at the back. The views you get are fantastic. We experienced Sunny, Rain, Chilly weathers all in 3 days.

They have facilities like Cable TV, Music System, Portable Bose Dock system for outside, a Guitar, a Telescope, Table Tennis table, Turnball, Badminton, Darts, Chess and a fantastic collection of Books. You can even go down for a Trek to the nearby hills. Rest assured everyone was busy with some activity during the day.

The most important part of the stay and the best part of the stay was the Service. It was simply 5-Star. The people managing the place and cooking and maintaining the place are doing an excellent job. Here are some highlights:

- The food was sumptuous (the cook is multi-talented as i discovered later)
- The cleanliness was amazing (bathrooms were spick & span)
- Courteous and willing to help (one of them even accompanied us for a Trek)
- Late nights was not an issue (They arranged a Campfire & Barbeque for us which went late into the night)
- Attention to detail (Every night they would light candles in strategic places even if we were not sitting around that area)

Its their people who made this amazing place a memorable stay for us.

Proof of the pudding: I have already planned a stay in October with my extended family here.

Just Awesome Awesome Awesome !!!

“Home away from home”
Reviewed January 26, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We rented the entire Villa to bring in New Year's with a bunch of friends. The property is done up beautifully with all amenities that one could think of. The staff is very well trained. Given that we had 6 children in the group - age ranging from 3 yrs old to 15 yrs , they all had a super time and kept busy with the number of games, books, outdoor activities put up by the owner Manish (who by the way makes sure he calls a few times to ensure all is going well). A must mention is the food - the cook is well trained and I have to say he made special effort to cook amazing food for my Gluten Intolerant husband. It's a must visit if you are looking for a really chilled out time in the hills.

“Luxury in Hills!!!”
Reviewed January 10, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

One of our most memorable holidays has been at crosswinds. I am extremely lucky to have visited this place twice in the last six months,once with my family and again with friends. Although , I love the ambience , the view , the food and courteous staff who are all out to make you feel at home, the highlight of this place has been the various treks , I have done from here.
Since I travel with my family , my husband and kids love the various excursions that we do around Crosswinds. We did forest walks and had a picnic inside the deep forests . My kids also enjoy the para gliding which happens near by.
Nothing beats the fresh organic salads and delicious barbecue the chef organizes in the evenings with a bonfire. Even though , I am a vegetarian , I got a wide variety of dishes to chose from. The special care by the staff is overwhelming . They make sure every personal detail of your choices are taken care of . I definitely feel over -pampered here. It has the luxury of a five star hotel and comfort and warmth of home. Can't think of a better place to begin my New year.

“Opulence & Serenity In One Package”
Reviewed January 8, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

The property is a true gem in exceeds expectations from all aspects. A world class villa which is very tastefully and thoughtfully designed. Truly world class and much ahead of its time for vacation options in Northern India. The place has such openness being constructed in an wide open space with full glass wall windows on the front providing amazing views of the hills and Nainital around. Beautifully manicured and landscaped garden he with a 360 deck and outdoor seating area gives you amazing views during the day and a cozy bar be que during the night. Don't miss the background music being pelted out from a BOSE sound system and playing classical music to anything of your choice as you sit and relax. There is even a well stocked library with books of varied categories for your relaxing needs. To top it all the villa is serviced by amazing hospitality and an extremely attentive staff that will cook up the best gourmet food that your desire and arrange for bar be ques of the freshest meats available in the organic produces of the hills. Totally recommended and a must stay option for a short weekend trip or a long vacation. Many activities are possible within a few hours like kayaking, boating, para sailing, trekking etc.
