I don’t think that we have ever had such a cost-effective trip with so many amazing facilities and amenities, and that too in such a beautiful location! Highly recommend anyone who's looking for a new refreshing vacation to come visit this place.
Our small family of three stayed in the premium room and we were very satisfied with the entire experience. The staff was courteous and the rooms were super comfortable.
Naukuchiatal Lake may not be a very famous among the tourist but it is worth a visit. Serene and calm. We accessed the lake in like 5 minutes of walking from the resort. Food at this place was the best part of my stay.
Excellent
Great value for money at this place, and we found that the care and hospitality provided here are much better than what we got at any other big hotels! Will definitely try out more of the Thrillophilia tours!

An away resort has most scenic locale in terms of mountains and forest, pretty well laid out over 17 acres
We were a family of four and booked the Family Suite, which fit all of us quite well. The rooms were nice and clean too. For this kind of price, I don’t think that I have ever gotten to stay in a place that looked this good before and therefore I'm more than happy with how the trip went. The kids had a lot of fun activities and games to play, both indoor and outdoor, and the whole weekend went really well.
Though not that famous, the Naukuchiatal lake is actually very beautiful, and we are glad that we chose to stay at this place for our weekend getaway. The stay was easy to find and we found the place to be very cosy and comfortable too, with great staff and yummy food that was served to us. We took a walk to the lake and spent some time there too, which was really nice.
Booked a premium family suit for my family. It was my mom and dad's anniversary and they were so happy to be living in this British style house. The fruit orchard around is ideal for morning or evening walks.
Staying here at this undeniably pretty white house made me deny the fact that it is a hundred year old property. Really hats off to the management here.
It is a two day one night trip where I got to stay in an old colonial house. Th experience was so amazing.. we stayed in family suite and it was a packet of fun staying with my cousins and family. The food was nice but it could have been a little less spicy. Overall nice trip.
