Travel is returning with a vengeance-as people look forward to reconnecting, exploring new destinations, and revisiting reliable favorites. Many people simply want to get away from the confines of their homes. Take in the crisp mountain air at this boutique luxury property in Uttarakhand. The estate offers many places for you to relax, eat home-cooked meals, or just read your favorite book under the shade of the decks and gardens around it. Each of these three villas features warm wooden interiors that contrast with a cool blue view. Sizeable windows look out to fruit trees, flowers, and snow-capped Himalayas.
Guests are given access to entire 4800sq ft villas, which consist of three bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, an attic room, a living room, a fully-functional private kitchen, a dining room, and private balconies. But the real showstopper here is the solarium, where you can dine under the stars or simply soak in the sun’s warmth while enjoying the feeling of being outdoors. During the day, the team can also set up local treks for you, plan a forest lunch or drive you to a nearby sunset point for an evening of soaking in great Himalayan views.
You can reach here within six hours, either by driving from Delhi NCR or Chandigarh tri-city, or by driving two hours from Rishikesh and the Dehradun airport. The Kaudia Estate offers all the amenities that a luxury boutique property can give. A stunning setting of mountains and Kaudia Forest surrounds Kanatal Tehri, offering breathtaking views and scenery. This region extends from the Kaudia range to the Saklana range, which is still unexplored and therefore intact with nature’s beauty.
