A short flight from Delhi and a two and a half hour drive up the mountains of Uttaranchal brought us to this Oasis in the Hills. “Te Aroha” means mountain of love in the Maori language. The owners of the hotel have taken that to mean “abode of love”. This love is clearly seen in the attention to detail in the construction and furnishings of the hotel by the owners.
On arrival we were served a lovely and refreshing welcome drink and were taken up to our room the staff who were very polite and well-trained. Our room was called the “Master’s bedroom” and was exquisite! It had a separate living area with a large glass window wall leading to a balcony from which one could see the Himalaya range on a clear day. The room had a beautiful antique four poster bed which was very comfortable.
We had opted for the full board package which included all meals with morning and afternoon tea. The meals were excellent and of the highest quality. We stayed 3 nights which we felt was too short. We went trekking and visited the nearby lakes. However the hotel in itself is a destination. One could just relax and enjoy the sumptuous surroundings and service. We will definitely be back!
