Soulitude in the Himalayas got almost everything right.
The location amidst the mountains with pleasant weather and splendid view. All the rooms have excellent view of the mountain range.
The hospitality was out of this world. Every member of the management and staff are ever ready to make your stay an experience you will cherish.
The icing on the cake was the bonfire on the front lawn with barbecue dinner.
In my opinion, the downside is the pricing (although I got at a discounted rate on MMT) and activities. Despite this, I shall want to visit and stay in this resort for the sheer joy and ‘Soulitude’ that one experiences. I recommend this.

We selected the property post seeing some photographs on one of the FB groups but believe you me, the property is exactly the same as shown on Tripadvisor.
The property is well connected from Kathgodam (nearest Railway Station). It has the most awesome view, well kept rooms and very helpful staff.
The on-site staff specially Mr. Bhanu & Mr. Vinod really took good care considering we were travelling with a 2.5 year old child.
The Sales office in New Delhi is very good and responsive. They upgraded our room category, which was very kind of them and added a positive impact even before the trip commenced.
The property gives you all the comfort of home. Food was awesome. The spread for break-fast and dinner was very good and total Value for Money.
Look forward a trip soon again !!!!

The biggest advantage of the Resort is the location. Every breath you take makes you feel alive.
The resort is very well maintained. Our room had porch and the morning and evening view from the porch was very soothing. Service was very good and staff was cooperative.
The restaurant has a good ambiance. Breakfast, lunch and dinner was good with lots of veg and non-veg options.
In short, it was a pleasant relaxation.

The property and the location is undoubtedly Amazing. What stands out is the exceptional care and courtesy shown by the staff and of course a special mention goes to Prithvi raj ji,bhanuji , who were as attentive during a midnight medical emergency as one would during day time. Totally satisfied would highly recommend.

We were the only guests when we stayed and the staff were excellent if a little bit too attentive ! They kindly set our meal by the open fire so we could enjoy relaxing in the warm. They attended to putting the heating on in the room and the bed warmer. Food was excellent. I would definitely recommend. The perfection of waking up to glorious mountain views on a clear day is something I shall never forget. A very special moment.

Soulitude is a real heaven on earth! This is a very late review but i had to!
If you are looking for a place to be surrounded by nature and spend time with your soulmate there would be no other place! The staff, especially the manager, Mr Prithvi Raj, made our stay just perfect. Prithvi ji suggested us the itineries, to do things and even must try local food. Since we were self driving we explored nearby places like bhimtal, sattal, mukteshwar which are half day trips! Its a cozy place to stay with all rooms of different themes, homemade food and staff paying attention to your tiniest demand. All around the place you will find tiny little somethings, unique in their own way and different from the other thing. They make the best hand beaten coffee!!

A beautifully-designed hotel in a stunning situation with distant Himalayan views, we really loved our stay in the “Secret Garden”. Every aspect of this hotel was just perfect for us. The room was spacious, warm and comfortable, with lots of interesting features. In fact, we did a walk around the hotel pointing to things we particularly liked (eg natural wood, tiling). Soup served beside the fire outside, under a full moon, was particularly magical. The barbeque was also great. Without exception, the staff were all really friendly and helpful to us, the only non-Indians there. They organised a lovely walk on one day and then, to our surprise, invited us to their twin hotel Soulitude by the River. The manager there welcomed us, showed us around and also took us for a beautiful walk. Again, quite magical. We fell in love with this beautifully-designed and characterful property and would dearly love to return and stay there. I have only praise for these two hotels. Thank you.

We zeroed on this property based on trip advisor reviews and as usual, the reviews were fully justified. If there is a boutique resort that lives fully to its name, it’s Soulitude. It definitely has a living, breathing soul that is full of joie de vivre. Meticulously built and aesthetically decorated with loving care by its owners, it is so full of delightful knick-knacks.
It is a small property with only 10 rooms, each named appropriately. We stayed at Nirvana that is a gorgeous suite with huge floor-to-ceiling glass windows and a skylight to enjoy the starry sky at night.
It is commendable that the people who man the resort are as lovable and caring. It feels more like a homestay and not a resort. The food is homely too and the chef is happy to accommodate your personal favourites.
We celebrated our daughter’s birthday and weren’t sure if they would be arrange a cake in the remote location. But, not only did they bake a cake but also put together a nice balloon-decorated birthday party, a nice surprise for the daughter.
We went on a lovely trek with Bhanuji who was kind to our city-feet. It was lovely weather, greenery, blue sky with zero pollution. After a long time, we enjoyed a fiercely competitive game of Scrabble.
We also made a day trip to Soulitude by Riverside but that is the subject of another review.
All-in-all, an excellent stay. We shall visit again!
