Come to think of it , it’s an expensive resort not for backpackers or budget planners.
But then to feel it – it’s an abode built with love and maintained with passion … the wooden poster beds, the rustic fireplaces , the bright yet subtle upholstery , the lazy study in cottage … the cheerful sunroofs …… are all a breather for the soul .
Food is ok , cud have been better . Hospitality by Prithvi and group ( suraj, bhanu, dinesh to mention few) has personal touch right from calling u up about arrivals and road directions to bading good bye..
Of course the views of Trishul and Nanda Devi on a clear sunny day are the initial attraction that brings u to this European cottage with Indian soul !
If in a group , best is combination of joy, delight and celebration . The only thing I disliked was confusion about max occupancy and chargeable occupancy. Plus the microwave in cottage should be functioning as we had kids asking fr Maggie at 12 in night with a closed kitchen .
Icing on cake – make sure you visit ” soulitude by riverside ” on day visit at least and be amazed at the idea of a stay in wilderness . Manoj at riverside is an earnest horticulturist cum manager at his best . And “Paritaal” is out of this world .
This owner guy Manish is worth admiring n this one is “Soulitude for the starved souls ”
