A Kumaoni pearl
by 239saifm on
A shining pearl in the heart of Kumaon, Nayalap turned out to be quite a find. With its classy well-spread luxury tents, amazing food, beautiful walks and an almost abandoned postcard village round the corner, the property ticks all the right boxes. The USP of the place is surely its exceedingly hospitable, warm, generous and knowledgeable owners -Tanuja and Anindya- who go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. You'll come back leaving your heart there and the friendly neighbourhood furballs will keep it safe and beating.
"Nice retreat from hustle & bustle"
by DineshPradhan123 on
we spent 1 night here but could easily spent 2 weeks. This stay was like a homestay, as we had the place to ourselves. This is definitely the place for nature lover & for those who want quiet, remote retreat. the staff were very friendly.....specially Tanuja Shah - The host, she took us for village walk. it was great experience to knowing about kumaoni culture & there habitat. we were served some amazing kumaoni food. I would definitely recommend it to all my friends and family. go there guys , such places are very few in India , you will love it.
Rediscover yourself in peace, quiet and fresh air.

We discovered Nayalap through a friend's recommendation. My wife and I decided to stay there and were pleasantly surprised by the experience. I was slightly hesitant to stay in tents but on reaching the property, I discovered that they are well equipped and cosy. The rooms have large beds with comfortable bedding, a lounging area and separate dining space. Each tent has an attached western-style toilet and shower attached to it. The location could not have been better. Easily accessible, with free parking space. The property is located away from the noise and pollution, yet provides all things of necessity. It offers picturesque views of the Himalayas, ample space to roam around, a jungle road strip to jog or walk in the morning and the evenings, forest hikes and trails etc. The owner Ms Tanuja is an excellent host and is happy to offer guidance to explore the surrounding villages too. She took us on trails, hikes, a small creek and took us to show abandoned Kumaoni villages in the valley. If you desperately need a break from noise and pollution and love nature, this is a place to glamp. I assure you you will not regret it. This place has the capacity to rejuvenate souls and spirits.
Charming glamping experience in Kumaon
by SBahl on
Nayalap is a set of 4 luxury tents and a common dining area set on a relatively flat surface near the top of a mountain. This itself makes it a somewhat unique experience because there seem to be hardly any glamping options in this region. The tents are neat and clean, spacious, comfortable and tastefully done, and the grassy exteriors calming and easy. The lean staff is hospitable and efficient. The food can be a hit-and-miss, but its not bad at all. The owner, Tanuja, is sweet and helpful, and shared a number of good tips from walks to discovering local craftsmanship and food. The road to Nayalap (from the Ranikhet side) is one of the nicest drives I have experienced in the Kumaon regiom. Shitlakhet itself is just a small village, but the entire area is beautiful and charming several kms of plateau-like land with beautiful roads and trails winding through dense pine forests. Overall, we had a very pleasant trip, and have no reservations about recommending Nayalap. Tips: do visit the Sun Temple at Katarmal not far from Nayalp - it is one of the few living sun temples in India, and is worth a short visit for the architecture. Take a walk down to the old village area where there many beautiful abandoned Kumaoni houses. Try the two famour local sweets - bal mitahi and singori.

Last trip was my 2nd and will keep on visiting this wonderful resort and wonderful location. Well connected from the nearby market and Ranikhet. Amenities, food and staff are just fantastic. Very good place for cycling, trekking and meditation. You can also see the wild life around the resort. Surrounded by the dense forest mostly by the pine trees. Hear whistling of pine trees, chirping of birds and orchestra of crickets whole day. Highly recommended!
All rooms are good, but I will prefer the two near the large open area on the upper side of the property.

The upper most tent is the best for the view, the middle-level tent if you want to get the sensation of being in a wide open area.
