Kalmatia Sangam is an oasis of peace in the hills. Once there after the long drive from Delhi, one can immediately begin to relax and unwind – welcomed by cool moist face towels and chilled rhododendron juice. The beautiful and comfortable rooms, which are exceptionally clean, are only spaces to retreat into during the dark hours and rains. Other than that, the lovely surroundings and the many places to sit and walk around under the pines and cedars within the estate keep the visitors entertained. The meals are good enough to look forward to and add a dash of excitement and adventure. Those of us, who have grown up on the staple diet of jeera aloo-peeli daal-anda bhurji of hill holidays of yore, can’t still quite accept that one can get full-on Lebanese and Italian meals at such hill resorts these days. And with delicious desserts to boot! The staff is very friendly and courteous. And Narendra and Imogen make it feel a bit like visiting good friends in the hills -- which doesn’t help because then you either don’t want to come away or are planning the next visit by the time you are having your second breakfast there. The spa is the cherry on the cake as Imogen’s expert massage and advice loosens up many a tight muscle and problematic lifestyle practices.
We visited with our elderly father and the people there were amazingly helpful and attentive to his needs. You can check with the management for rooms with easier access if you are travelling with older people. This was out second visit, and we intend to go back many more times.
For those who want to explore the nearby areas, there is Jageshwar, Bageshwar, Kausani, Almora, Binsar, some shopping to do, some village walks to be taken, some temples to be visited. Whichever way you are looking at it, a visit to Kalmatia is going to be a great break from your city life.
