We came here with our family to spend 3 nights. It was an incredible experience. Food and hospitality was beyond 5 stars! Every small detail was taken care of by the wonderful staff and host Harkirat. Every meal was well planned and delicious. Thanks to Anup and the staff for giving us an memorable holiday.
Visited Citrus County Firdaus from 25th February to 27th February... some friends had already visited it and had said good words about it, so decided to give it a try. I will be very precise: Upside.... 1. Rooms are good. 2. Food is good. 3. Ambience is Fair. Downside.... 1. Tariff is high, given the experience being offered. 2. Pricing on weekdays should be reasonable coz, the services being offered are of lower quality. 3. Experiencing nature should not mean that you have to live without a wi-fi connection.... Mobile network is as it very poor in this area. 4. There are no sign-boards ANYWHERE, to guide you to the site.... and Google can make you travel 15 kms for a distance of 5 kms, in this region, coz the roads are very narrow and primitive. 5. If the occupancy is low... the staff becomes lethargic. 6. The rooms should have at least an intercom. 7. At least a paved parking should be developed. 8. Kindly go in big groups... otherwise you may want to escape. 9. Mr. Harkirat, the owner should be open to suggestions and new ideas... he should develop a decent library, with diverse books to facilitate solo travellers. 10. There is a lot of scope for off-roading here... but the resort offers no facilities in this regard. Not worth a second visit.…
We were there for five days, at the relatively new six independent cottage suites' Firdaus complex of Citrus County. Set amidst the Poplar trees, and Kinu Orchards, the place is a serene haven of personal warmth and culinary indulgence. From the moment we arrived to the momment we left, we were pampered by the owner and host, Harkirat Singh, his family & staff. From breafast to dinner, we gorged on different veg and non-veg delights, most often cooked in the evenings by Harkirat himself on the outdoor wood-mud chullahs. Of course, most of it was done with dollops of ghee! We didn't hold back either and enjoyed ourselves silly. Since it was early January, to keep ourselves warm, we could comfortably lounge around a couple of thoughfully lit wood fire pits in the garden. An important must do was a tractor ride through their Kinu Orchards where we were encouraged to pluck & partake as many as we wanted to. When we headed out for some nearby sight seeing to the Gurudwara Bibhor Saheb or an early to visit to Amritasar and the Golden temple, a sumptuous breakfast to our taste was packed, along with bottles of fresh Kinu juice, of course. A most enjoyable experience was that we could go Quad Biking in the evening around the estate, with Harkirat and his friends. Quite thrilling! Over all, a terrific stay - comfortable lodging, great food, and heart warming personalised hospitality - thank you, Harkirat!…
What a lovely experience! All the staff there are so accommodating and go out of their way to make your experience a good one. They organised activities such as truck tour around kino (orange) farm, walk around village and we were lucky enough to have an Indian wedding. The owner is at the forefront and talks with you often. Only downside is there tents are very dark inside but I assume it would be lighter during the summer when you can open the windows a bit. Should definitely come here. The food is sensational.
Nestled amongst acres of orange orchards this place is heaven. We stayed at Firdaus which is an extension of Citrus county (a 10 mins drive). Rooms are very well designed and take care of all necessary comforts. We visited during peak winters and there were sufficient arrangements for heating. The ambiance outside is fantastic with lawns, trees and orchards. The fireplace makes for very comfortable meals, sitouts and conversations. Staff is outstanding and take great care of all your needs. The food is top notch and Harkirat is an excellent cook. Endless orange juice and fresh fruits were definitely the highlights for us. Harkirat and his family personally take care of all arrangements and he happens to be a fantastic cook too. We enjoyed the jungle walk and cycling around the property . This is a place where you can listen to nature and soak in the vegetation and the environment. This is surely on our annual calendar now..…
We were a Group of around 10 on a business trip to Punjab. We stayed for a day at Citrus. The hospitality was very good . The rooms are tents with all modern amenities. The food was amazing , and the breakfast spread was very good . a lot of personal attention and service. Has a lot of orange farms around. Great place to stay and enjoy the nature.
We stayed here for 1 night en route from Amritsar to Dharamshala as part of a tour organised by Audley. We got an air conditioned tent(!) and a very warm welcome from all the family and staff. We were the only non vegetarians staying and had a fish dish prepared specially for us which we ate outside beside a fire pit. This followed several rounds of horsdoeuvres and was very well cooked. The owner insisted on taking us a tractor tour of his orchards and fields giving a real chance to see a quite different aspect of Indian life- rural Punjab. We enjoyed our breakfast too. Citrus County might not be to everyone's taste but we loved it.
The place to stay to experience warm hospitality Ina relaxing rural setting. Our second visit ..love the place! A chance to relax from a busy touring schedule. Wonderful food and a tour of the local village and orange groves. The lads enjoyed their bike ride and we all enjoyed the barbecue under the stars.
We, a group of 8 couples stayed at Citrus County for 3 days in the second week of January 2019. Our host Harkii and his father and mother looked after us personally throughout our stay. It was a great experience travelling by tractor trolley through the fields of Punjab. Every meal was a connoisseurs delight and Harkii was hands on in the kitchen. Sitting around the bonfire every evening, delicious snacks being served and discussions and singing was a true Punjab experience. We plan a yearly visit to this beautiful place, Citrus County.
Comfortable tents, nice ambience, good food, lots of kinnows to pluck/ eat and friendly hosts. We were a bit skeptic while planning on how warm the tents can be in late dec but we found it warm and comfortable. thanks
