This was my first trip to Dhanaulti and Kanatal. I was a bit skeptical about the facilities. However, my apprehensions were laid to rest the moment I entered the property and experienced warm hospitality and smiling faces of the courteous staff. It is a great destination for sure - a peaceful place and a must visit destination for true nature lovers.
The service was quite good, our tent was comfortable. The staff was friendly yet professional and special mention to Mr. Govind who took personal care to ensure that the trip was memorable.
