Drink in the sight of the rising and setting sun or just enjoy the clouds gliding over the Himalayan peaks from your room at Himalayan Darshan Resort.

Annima Bahukhandi: This resort is not for those who are simply looking for a hotel to crash and prefer to stay near the markets. This resort is an experience in itself, 5 km away from main Kausani market, it offers peace and quiet, decorated with malta and lemon trees around. Wake up before sunrise and witness the gorgeous sunset, play badminton, gorge on some in-house malta's, take long walks, if you cycle, then take the bikes from the hotel and cycle to the nearby village, talk to the locals there and if you are lucky enough you'll get invited to a traditional Kumaoni meal at their home. A special word for the owner of the place Mr. Manoj Arora, who made our stay beyond what the finest hotels can offer.

2. Sleep under millions of stars while listening to barking deers in the distance at Binsar

Sleep under millions of stars while listening to barking deers in the distance at Binsarsource: binsarforestretreat.com

Go on long treks amidst the misty mountain trails or spot leopards, deers and migratory birds while you are at the Binsar Retreat.

Raginee Baruah: Tucked in the forest area of Binsar, this retreat is worth a visit! The hotel runs on solar energy, but this does not seem like a handicap at all, on the contrary, it makes the visit even more memorable and unique when one sits under the star-studded sky, listening to crickets and gazing at the sky waiting for shooting stars to pass you by. Spot a barking deer while sipping your cup of tea sitting in your tent! For a great view of the snow-capped himalayas in the morning stay at Tent 1.

Take in spectacular views of snow-covered peaks or pamper yourself with hydrotherapies with mineralising salts from the mountains at the Terraces. "Terrace stays"  is definitely a concept that will capture your imagination.

Gaurav Kumar:The resort is beautifully located and the view from the room is enchanting especially sunset view. Mesmerised with the view when city came to light, all over it was orange with pitch dark background of sky. Go for morning nature walk. I was busy admiring sunrise with a cup of tea in my hand. Weather took a fold when clouds started passing through the resort. Within minutes sky turned black from bright sunny, with clouds around us.

Ever take a spa amidst locale-facing Snow clad Himalayas?

Stress pots and workaholics - The Retreat is the perfect rehab for you.

Sandeep Arora: The estate house is an old colonial bungalow, which has been maintained really well. What's impressive is that it conveys that old rustic charm and impressed even us who have stayed in these colonial bungalows for the greater part of our childhood.
