Nestled in the Kumaon hills, hidden midway between Almora and Kausani, this resort is an absolute delight for nature lovers. I stayed here along with my wife and parents in May 2014, while on our way to Chaukori. We got two floors of beautiful wooden cottage with mud plastered walls and a secret stair connecting the two levels. We enjoyed going up and down this narrow, squeaking wooden stair.
The staff was very courteous and helpful. Mr. Francis, the manager called us a day before and gave us directions. The way he greeted us, we felt as if we were being received by an old relative at his house. His cute dog was such a darling, he played with us and accompanied us when we went for sight seeing. The hotel staff even provided food for our driver at a nominal cost of Rs. 200, which is important as there is hardly any place close by where a driver can eat.The food was signature V resort style, simple, healthy and delicious.
We got to see a lot of birds in the resort. They also have a selection of indoor and outdoor games. Like the other V resort locations, this is great resort at reasonable prices. I would definitely recommend it to others.
