Rakkh is an unbelievably amazing resort. Everything about the place amazing - the location, tastefully done rooms, DIY counters, food, adventure activities. On top of it, the management and staff is top-notch friendly and helpful. Just running out of adjectives. It's the kind of resort one would love to go again and again and recommend unabashedly to everyone.

Blissful Amazingly Beautiful Everything is just perfect... Wont to say that it is close to nature... It is nature. Crafted so beautifully...a stay to visualize what we are missing in cities. Stffs are like ready for anything anytime...just to ask them what you want. No TVs n WiFi in entire area makes it more natural.

Thank you Rakh for pampering us & making our much needed break into a fantastic stay. The property is so beautiful with amazing views from everywhere, you can see the snow peaked range clearly, complete silence, fresh air to breathe, birds sound so soothing, luxury rooms with all amenities, DHAM restaurant with excellent quality of food with every request fulfilled from guests, activity zones with lot of adventure & best part was trekking which we did a lot since our was a very long stay. We had our son's birthday and they really made it special for him. Must thank the entire team - GM Swati, Ashwini, Chef, Vishal, Anil, Naveen, Pawan, house keeping n more for making our stay super comfortable & an amazing experience. Must say in the end that it was worth every penny.

Thank you so much Kanishka ji for sharing your experience, it was our pleasure to host Nupur, Vihaan, Parth and you. We are glad that you chose a 5 night stay which allows a perfect balance of being active by going on treks etc and taking it slow to soak in the beauty of the surroundings. It was our pleasure to organize birthday celebration for Parth, he is an amazing kid with lot of energy and competitiveness. You all were so easy to host and we would love to host and meet you all again. Thank you for acknowledging and appreciating efforts put by the team, it means a lot. Regards

Rakkh is not like your typical resort - you go here to disconnect and unwind. With their selection of activities (various treks, mountain biking, sports) it's the perfect getaway from a busy city life. Expect to be more active than you'd be on a usual vacation and you will have a great time!

The staff at Rakh is the standout resource of the resort. Everyone was extremely helpful, genuinely caring for making our stay special, and made sure we left with only happy memories. Above all, they made sure the stay was as comfortable as possible for my grandmother for whom movement was difficult due to the hilly terrain of the resort. Shoutout to Akhil, Sandeep, Naveen, Vishal for being the most helpful hosts and Swati for making sure all our requests were given proper attention. On the resort itself, Rooms are spacious and very well maintained. I would recommend taking the mountain rooms, but if you want to indulge, forest rooms are enormous and much more luxuriously done without really costing a bomb. They have Bose Bluetooth speakers in every room which was unexpected but really cool (no TV ofcourse). Food was nice, and they have a fully stocked bar. The activities are fun and will keep you engaged. We did air cycling, rock climbing and the night trek, all three of which were amazing. Take full board options because it’s unlikely that you’ll venture out of the resort for any meals. If you have kids, they would really enjoy the DIY stations. Overall, we loved our stay, and can’t wait to go back again.

Thank you so much Shruti for sharing your experience. We are so glad you chose Rakkh to celebrate golden birthdays of some of you and gave us an opportunity to make it special. We were delighted to be part of the celebration by making all the arrangements. Special kudos to you for being the lead in not just coordinating the entire trip for your group but also being a constant source of encouragement to the group for the treks and picnic we had planned. Your efforts in making the trip fun and enjoyable for the entire group are also commendable. Thanks for your appreciation for our team, we absolutely loved hosting you all.
