If you are looking for something off-beat, in the Kumaon region in the Himalayas, but not the usual "Mall road" type hill station, then bingo, you have reached the right place at the Faraway Renz. We had planned a 2 night stay at Faraway Renz after a 2 night stay inside Corbett, and we feel it was the best decision as we ended up extending by one more day and we are so glad we did that. The road to the resort is very scenic and when you reach the place you get breathtaking scenes all around the place. A treat for bird and nature lovers, and also for stargazers. A special mention about the hospitality from Mr. Manoj and Mr. Deepu. Vegetarian Food and snacks were delicious and were served piping hot. The corner cottage that we had booked was a cosy place with lawn in the front where you get a 270° view of the valley and hills. The room was well provided with all amenities. On the whole a perfect stay, truly "Faraway" from the hustle bustle of the towns and cities. We give Faraway Renz a perfect 10.

I visited this resort for 4 Nights and today will be my last day here. No words to describe this place. One has to feel it and enjoy the beauty of this place. Location - Beautiful views around 180 degree. Cannot ask for better place for sure Resort - All stone cottages as it should be in hills. Beautifully designed and natural kumaon look. With sitting area in each cottage - can sit for hours and hours and enjoy mother nature. Cottage ooms - Neither small nor large - just perfect. No bricks, no white wash - simply built of stones with polish over stone giving royal natural look. It has double bed, a double bunk bed for kids, small kichennet and neat clean bathroom. Even a fridge and a TV. Wooden chairs besides the large bay window too. What else one may want? Food - This is my favourite. Though all aspects deserve 5 star rating, I give this one 5+ star. Delicious, hygienic, balanced spices and served with love. Me and my family just loved all meals. Service - Quick and with a 😊 The host is a wonderful person and it's a pleasure to talk to Rishi (owner). Manager and cook - Mohan and Prem always ready to assist and caring. Anything missed? Rest one has to feel it to enjoy it.

To escape the weekend curfew in Delhi and to liven up the family bonding , our family of 4( me, my wife Shakun , daughter Kritika visiting from Hong Kong & son Arpan , decided almost impromptu to discover this amazing place called FARAWAY Renz and left from Delhi on a very foggy morning of 21/01/2022( for 4 nights ) by our car - piloted by my longtime driver Rakesh who is from Himachal Pradesh & is always ready for such gateways ! Run by Rishi & his wife Nidhi , this property is a gem tucked away in a sparsely populated village some 30 KM before Ranikhet in Uttarakhand, overlooking a beautiful valley with fascinating view of the distant mountains and certainly a go-to place if one is looking for solace and reinventing oneself ! The views from our Cottages were mesmerizing ,with floating clouds , a reluctant Sun , the mystery Moon and pattering of raindrops over the roof of our room - some of which ,me , the amateur photographer , tried to capture through my smartphone ! The team of Prem & Dippu , took good care of us with lovely food with special mention of the Mutton Curry by chef Jaswant ! Afterall , satisfaction of the stomach is mutually inclusive of satisfaction of the soul !! Our trip got really more exciting when Rishi ( my junior from IIT Bombay) arrived with his wife Nidhi & son Chinmoy with Games , music ( played by my son - he had carried his guitar) , bonfire , stories from the past & some animated discussions ! A wonderful experience !!!

Food is awesome and cottages are well equipped and luxurious. Even the people from village are also very friendly and welcome you warmly. We had gone for morning walk & villagers invited us to the house nd offered tea also. It was worth spending ur vacations here. Loved it

This place is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited, the view from our cottage was breathtaking, the food cooked by Jaswant was scrumptious. Prem singh and Madan were always smiling ever ready to help, they also organised a birthday cake for our son. We stayed for a week at this resort, it relaxed and unwinded us completely. Ms Sangita was very prompt to attend to all our demands. The view of snow capped mountains from our cottage will stay etched in our memory forever. We wish we could pack a few clouds that came to visit us everyday…A must visit.

We stayed at Faraway Renz in Ghatti and we loved our mini vacation! The staff is very kind and helpful. The cottages are aesthetic and are equipped with all necessities. The food at this resort is delicious!!! The view from the resort is beautiful and you can gaze away for hours at end. There are several treks and trails to follow for those interested in trekking. The location of the resort is perfect as it connects you to different parts of Uttarakhand very well. I'd suggest this beautiful resort for anyone looking for a quiet and comfortable getaway.

We, 3 families of 4 each, went for a much-needed getaway and to spend the new year vacation to Faraway Renz located beyond Jim Corbett off Ramnagar – Ranikhet highway nested in the woods for 5 days. We found the property through a mutual contact and got in touch with Ms. Sangeeta who was extremely helpful and addressed all our concerns regarding travel and stay arrangements. We started at 5 in the morning and reached around 4 PM after stopping for both breakfast & lunch. The roads were smooth all along and only got a little rough towards the end. There were plenty of signs that led us to our destination in the hills. One of the owner Mr. Rishi was there to receive us with his brother. The real love started when we moved towards the rooms as we were still a little apprehensive about the whole place, but the rooms were a real surprise as all the 6 rooms were clean, spacious and had all the necessary things in place for our stay with direct view of the mountain peaks. We were all mesmerized by the location of the homestay, the view was just breathtaking. The caretaker Prem Singh bhaiya is a gem of a person, he fulfilled all our unending demands with a smile on his face even when we asked him to provide with all necessary stuff when our children wanted to make their own Chula and make food on that, even if it meant so many rounds of up and down the hill. We are a group of foodies who love to both cook and eat good food and so, were a little apprehensive about the food. But the cook Jaswant is absolutely amazing. To our surprise, every dish that he made was so yummy that we always had our stomachs full but not our hearts. Our children became a fan of his cooking especially the French fries which we had almost every day, and the Pahadi Mutton was to die for. The place is well equipped with games like Table Tennis, Carrom, Cricket, board games and so many other games to keep everyone engaged. One of the highlights of the place was the moonrise, which believe me, we had never seen before anywhere, it was the real beauty of the nature. The sky was clear for most of the days and full of stars where we sat for 2 days in a row to see the different constellations and to our surprise we could see “satellites moving” without any telescopes(never thought of that). Overall, it was a memorable holiday for all of us and we came back happy and refreshed, we will definitely want to visit the place soon again. Thank you team Faraway.

It was one of the best stays in the mountains that I had in recent times. The smell of foliage, the sound of cricket, the just right temperature of the autumn sun and amazing hospitality by Prem ji and his team made it a memorable stay. I came back wishing I should have planned a longer holiday. It was a calming soothing balm on my tired heart. I would highly recommend this stay for connecting with yourself. Do nothing. Feel the embrace.

Stayed for 2 nights at the Bungalow with senior citizens. Was very lucky that I had a clear view of the snow clad peaks for full one and a half day right from the living room and a thousand stars under clear sky at night. Located on the slopes and its a 5/5. Food is 5/5 , I was served nice homely food. Rooms (The bungalow) 4/5 reducing 1 point just because there is a room for improvement towards crispness. Cleanliness :5/5. Staff: 5/5 Dinning area: 4/5 An important thing for first time visitors, please not that this isn't a full frills Luxury hotel. Its a place where the staff tries their level best to serve your needs. Surprisingly the whole place is run by a 5 member staff team, who are always smiling. The co-owner Mr.Rishi is very helpful and cooperative person and approachable, if you have any doubts just ask him. Over all i enjoyed my stay. ROOM TIP: Senior citizens or people with mobility issues or leg problems should only choose Bungalow as it is on same level of dining and a more bigger flat area. The other type of rooms require a ramp to walk and the floor is of cemented stone.

We visited this place in a group of about 30 people in May ‘19. As our group was big, Mr. Rishi Sanwal (our host) arranged a few rooms in some private property nearby. Both places had amazing rooms with beautiful views outside. The rooms are perfectly done with all basic amenities. Cleanliness was properly taken care of. The entire property is tastefully done with different varieties of plants and trees. The staff at the property is very adjusting and helpful. They even served us at 12 midnight that also with a smiling face. The food served was really amazing.. Rishi and his wife are a wonderful host... Will definitely recommend this property 👍🏻
