We stayed at Soulitude in the Himalayas for 3 nights. After an initial hiccup with our room, Bhanuji – the manager was quick to respond and change our room.

After this, it was a very smooth and comfortable stay here. The rooms are nicely done up, makes you feel at home. They’re spacious and have common decks with great views of the valley. Unfortunately at this time of the year you may not see the Himalayan range but we managed to get a glimpse of just the top peaks on our last day.

The staff is prompt and helpful and always available for all your needs. I must give a big thank you to the two team members [i forgot their names] who served us meals and also took care of the housekeeping. Very warm and friendly.

The property also has a good tie up with local cab vendors. They will help you arrange for local sightseeing. We had taken the cab from Madhusudan. Apart from being a good driver he also took us to some lesser crowded and lesser commercials places.

They have a buffet for lunch and dinner, the menu for the same are shared with you in advance so you can give your feedback as well. You may also order a la carte snacks menu in case you want to have a small bite. The food is good.

In the evenings they have a bonfire set and guests can sit out in the open and have their meals. They don’t have an operational bar so guests can carry their own alcohol. Kindly get your alcohol from your destination as getting alcohol around is difficult and getting the brand that you may like will be a bigger challenge.

Bhanuji is also very helpful with guiding you about the places to visit. Each day he gave us a hand drawn map of the places we were planning to visit – Nainital / Sattal and around. It was very helpful. He also recommended places to shop / eat.

Soulitude is a great option for people who would like a have a comfortable vacation with great service and good food. It’s located centrally so you can keep this as your base and visit Nainital, Bhimtal, Sattal, Naukuchiyatal and probably even Mukteshwar.

I would recommend staying at least 3 nights here to cover the above places. All in all a great location and a comfortable stay.

The decor at Soulitude is breathtaking. So many artifacts and all so appropriately chosen to reflect a mountain get away.
We stayed at Nirvana. It’s the best room at Soulitude for sure. Spacious for four of us couple with two teenage kids.
However there’s some construction activity going on at the adjacent plot to the cottage which can get noisy. In addition the generator is also near the cottage which again is on quite a bit and makes noise.
Excellent views. Also loved the sky visible roofs at places.

Food is excellent. Though price of 750 per head for dinner is a bit steep.

Wifi connectivity is poor.

Coming to the staff which is just so warm, courteous and helpful and the real stars of this place. Led by the ever available Mr Prithavi and his team. God Bless you all.

There’s nothing much to do around. Nice food at the local dhaba at Ramgarh market. Not just the samosas. In fact the food kadhi pakoda, paneer, etc was better and really tasty. You can get a local taxi to go to Ramgarh, not really walking distance. Market is barely ten shops.

From Delhi airport its an 8 hour drive incl 30 min halt.

We visited this place in May 2017 with family.

Location – This place is around 8 hours drive from Delhi, 20 kms before Nainital.

Property – The property is huge, with cottages and rooms. Every room is different in its name, decor, furnishing, etc. It all depends on your preferences. Awesome hill views from the rooms.

The Website – Their website contains all the room details along with videos, making it easier to take your pick.

Food – The Buffet spread was limited. We had breakfast and dinner. We found the food to be bland. Also, certain dishes were not properly cooked. I suggest they should add more variety to their spread. The Chef was helpful in customizing the food for the kids.

Staff and Service – The staff was courteous and helpful. The service was OK, though usually delayed at dinner time.

Activities – The property has a garden where kids can play with a ball, etc. Also, they provide badminton rackets. They have a wide collection of books for avid readers and a huge collection of Movie DVD’s for movie lovers. Board games are available for kids.

Parking – They have a limited parking space, with a very steep incline at the main entry. Need to be careful there.

Overall, a pleasant and refreshing home stay in Himalayas.

This is a beautiful property with thoughtful attentive staff, great food and well appointed rooms – the one where I stayed had a brilliant view of the Himalayan ranges – the room was called The Master’s Touch. Stayed for 3 days – wish I could have stayed longer!

The hotel has such a nice view and best hospitality. Stayed here for 2 days and had a gala time. We stayed at the cottage and we were only ones, so we could enjoy the privacy. Food was good. Ambience of all the rooms is simply good. Except for the 8 hrs drive from delhi, I would go there many times a year

Soulitude is a beautiful property in the Kumaon range. We stayed there for four days, and it was truly an amazing experience for us. As soon as we reached Soulitude, we were treated to rhododendron juice, which was made on site & was very refreshing. Then we were taken to Delight, which was a comfy room with a brilliant view of the Himalayas. The friendly staff took us on a tour of the place and we were absolutely ecstatic! The food was on point, as many cuisines were offered, and each time we had more than enough to eat! The house is very well designed and very well maintained. You can see that a lot of care & thought has been put into each aspect. It has the personal touch of a home away from home coupled with excellent service. We loved the reading room, the spacious balconies and with all the skylights & huge windows we felt one with nature! The early morning views of the Himalayas was to die for! Waking up to the amazing view always ensured an amazing day, and overall our experience will stay in our hearts forever.

We recommend this place to any traveller who loves a comforting sanctuary as well as a great outdoor experience.

Location is extreamly beautiful. Rooms are located at different altitudes. Main building has five rooms ( plus one room at below level) and the dining- so preference should be given to get any of those rooms according to budget. I stayed in Delight (room no 9) which is not in main building. Room was very nice. Service and Staff behavior is excellent. Food quality is good. Only problem I faced was going back to room in night – one literally climbed around 4 floors. Also TV is in common area around room nos.7,8 & 9 and not in the individual rooms. My experience says it is better to stay in either of rooms in main building. Lots of trekking can be done in surrounding areas. Nainital is just 22 km away. Paragliding is also not too far away. Do experience Soulitude….

This is our second stay within one year at the appropriately named Soulitude Resort. We joined the celebrations of a friend’s sixtieth birthday. All sixteen of us revelled in our well appointed rooms and the fine food served to us with great flair. Each room has its own distinct decor,thanks to the creativity of the owners.
The staff were always very courteous and attentive to our needs… and of course the great attraction is the fabulous views of the Himalayan range ,dominated by Nanda Devi and Trishul,all beautifully snow clad… a feast for the eyes !
We are bound to visit Soulitude again and highly recommend it for either a retreat or a celebration
