Kasar Rainbow Yoga Retreat
Ranked #2 of 36 Almora B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 19, 2013

The Kasar Rainbow Resort is a 15 minute drive from Almora.. and there are local buses as well as shared taxi / personal taxi conviniently available to reach KasarDevi.

The resort is located down the main road.. calm and quiet the place is beautifully done with simple interiors, nothing loud... and soft international music in the background..The rooms are so clean and what I love personally is the no frills and fancies in this resort.

The place is mostly full with firang guests.. I found this place best suitable for solo travel or with a bunch of friends..
Don't expect too much noise in Kasar its a very peaceful and calm place. That is the beauty of it. You'll hear the birds chirping all day long.. the music of the rains.. comes and goes.. there is no dull moment.

I was happy to have the local food which was really awesome and ginger lemon honey tea is the utmost favorite of all the guests here.

A walk down the lane Rainbow has a seperate restuarant and they serve a variety of dishes. For a lively evening with friends its a real nice place. I love the choice of music.. the owner Mr Sabu Mehra has been a solo traveller and collected the music of different languages throughout his trips.

If you need time away from your busy schedule.. and mad corporate life.. please don't miss out on Kasar Rainbow Resort.

Our stay at Rainbow Guesthouse could be well described in one word and that is "AWESOME" .This place is located approx 6-7 kms away from Almora. Rainbow is located amidst pine and deodar trees and has fresh air all around the day.It's very peaceful place. The rooms are very clean. Has wide variety of cuisines. The staff is friendly and well behaved.loved my stay at Rainbow.

The Kasar Rainbow Guesthouse is a short, easy walk down from the road sign. The rooms are bright and colorful with many windows. The view is magnificent. From your bed, you can wake up and see snow-capped Nanda Devi, Trishul, etc...
All rooms have recently been remodeled and are spotlessly clean and...there is 24hr hot water, super white bedsheets, a good mattress, soft towels. I stayed here for about 10 days and as a solo female traveler, i felt really welcome and at ease here.
The restaurant is also very pleasant. There is a huge library with great books and magazines.
Service is great and always with a smile. Food really delicious. Upon request they can cook Kumaon specialities with maïze flour, bonda's etc....The owner Sabhu and his wife are very knowledgeable. They can organize village walks, 4 day trekkings with overnight stay in traditional Kumaon villages and excursions by car to nearby temples, wildlife sanctuaries etc... The lady of the house is a great artist. She did all the decoration in the restaurant and the paintings on the wall. The staff is always cleaning, joking and smiling. It's also walking distance from the peaceful Kasar Devi temple.

I arrived late one night in rainbow but i knew straight that i will like this place. The rooms are big with an amazing view on the himalayas. The bed was the best i slept in in india. The food of the restaurant is delicious. The owner can organize everything and the manager is a pearl!

First visit at the Rainbow was followed by friends recommendation in August 2012. The second time was in May 2013. Each visit was for 5 weeks.
Family friendly. Amazing staff and amazing views. Beautiful and large rooms. After a makeover, all rooms now include running hot water, towels and linen are provided. Wifi available (!). The food is great and a very good service. A perfect and most amazing place in India.
Sabu Mehra, the owner, is a very skilled travel agent (he actually had traveled and is most helpful regarding different destinations). Rate is fair for the facility you get.

Room Tip: The guesthouse has four rooms on top and 4 rooms on the bottom. All are nice.

Very peaceful and beatiful guesthouse on the ridge. Great view, great rooms, great personel (very very kind without being culturally awkward, down to earth people). The food is great, but it depends on who's chef that night :) We've had the best food, and mediocre food!

The best place ive stayed during 2 months of India.
