Much has been written by other travellers, and most of it in glowing terms, about this haven in the hills, so I will confine myself to a few finer elements which make it what it is. First, it is the unrelenting passion of Manish, the owner, whose commitment to ecocological discipline is rivalled only by his near fanatical obsession with detail.. it is this which shines through every square inch of SITH, be it the faux antique faucets, the cast iron fireplaces, the embellishments in the doorway, the anger painted furniture in the dining room… and much more.
At the same time, complete comfort has been virtually guaranteed. Shower pressure, water temperature, sleep quality, toiletries, all will satisfy the most finicky of travellers. We stayed in the cottage, which is higher up than the main house, and the extra altitude plus the seclusion were both very welcome.
My wife and I were fortunate to have experienced SITH and its very personalised services. It is as if the owners have opened their home to you. Hence, if you are a guest at SITH, perhaps you could suspend, for the duration of your visit, that stuffy five star guest attitude and revel in the wholesome warmth of this wonderful place.
