At a 90 mins drive from Kathgodam, Soulitude is a boutique property that offers visitors a chance to get close to nature, with breathtaking views of the Himalayas, fresh (pollution free) air, backed by some warm + personalized service. A package that has earned it a well deserved No. 1 rating at TripAdvisor. The service is fantastic. We stayed at the Cottage section, not the main building.. While the two are a few steps away, but with small kids (infants) or old people, I would recommend people to take up rooms in the main building. We were a group of 6, so took up all the rooms in the cottage and had it exclusively to ourselves.. The views are breathtaking, service on the food is great with the menu changing daily. The last night we had kumaoni local food and were pretty impressed. On all other days, we had a fair mix of cuisines ranging from Indians, Chinese, continental etc.. Their Kinnoo squash was a bit naturally bitter and I used to love gulping it down with my breakfast. Their other property (Riverside) is about 40 mins away by road and another 30 mins trek thru the Dried up river bed and its an experience that I would highly recommend. Spending our new year here was the best decision of 2016. Quiet, calm, peaceful, exotic birds chirping away every morning, in the lap of purity with some family time was just what I needed to start this year. The staff deserves a special mention as they make you feel at home, and definitely go the extra mile to ensure that the guests are well taken care off.
