Absolutely mesmerising location.... Must go to believe it !! Small property but very well managed. Polite and responsive staff. The only way to get there is a 20 mins trek thru the river bed and another trek to Pari tal is equally adventurous. Inspite of the location they provide everything you need.... Even the internet is good. My special thanks to Mr Dinesh, Pradeep, Manoj and also Mr Sunil and Sanjay... They all made our stay so special and comfortable. Last but not the least, my gratitude and appreciation for Chef Umesh. Never had such delicious food in my life ! Loved everything. !!

Thank you to you and your team for your hospitality at Soulitude by the Riverside. We had a beautiful time. Our kids loved the place. The location is even more beautiful and than we had imagined. Nestled between the mountains, and just the sounds of birds and the river for us to hear. Your team was just so polite and so very helpful. Always there if we lift our heads. Food as I mentioned while leaving as well was amazing. It brings you back to the roots like the place does. I know for sure I will be visiting there again, as we are still missing the place.

This resort Is a beautiful place to spend some quality time alone or with family and friends. There are so many lovely spots where people can access little chairs and tables, so you can enjoy the river flowing by in serenity. The rooms are impeccable, very well maintained .They have a kind of rustic feel but with all the amenities and comforts, though the mobile signals are not so easily accessible there. they do have Wi-fi which works fine. The staff is very polite and soft spoken. The food is absolutely delicious, every time, every meal. They show you the menu beforehand, so you know what to expect at each meal. The way to the resort is a lovely trek alongside the Kalsa river. The management does give warnings about people with mobility issues not being advised to take the trek.. but I reached the resort easily,(I'm 53 and not fit by any imagination). There's enough adventure in nature to keep the young, the old and little kids occupied I was travelling solo and everything was managed comfortably and easily buy the staff and management. Definitely plan to return with my family in tow next time.

Anybody looking to disconnect from the world and connect with himself / herself - this is the place to rejuvenate and be in the lap of nature. Just you, your thoughts, River flowing, birds chirping (and there are at least 100 different birds - saw at least 20+)... The treks deeper into the jungle, The staff is amazing, great food, amazing service and the service is prompt, the way they take care of the guests. And there is nothing to disturb you, no phone calls, no emails - recommend this place if you want peace in the lap of nature and a bit of an adventurer.

For anyone willing to get lost in the beauty of nature, this is the place! You can enjoy the bird voices sounding like music, watching the rare birds which we don't usually get to see at-least in the place I live at and the river flowing sounds very meditative! I was amazed by the beauty this place offers and it is an absolute destination for the nature lovers! Rooms are ethnic by design which suites very well with the place. Food and hospitality was great. The adventure begins from the moment you land there, with the 20 min walk to the resort. Thanks to Saurabh, Sanjay and Soulitude team for gifting us this amazing experience!

Somebody recommended this place to me and i will also recommend to people. i was there for couple of nights. conversation started with Sunil who helped us to book a travel. i have not seen such a great hospitality, i have travelled world. i am not a review guy, but its beyond my expectations, i always put a review. starting from nature pool of spring water, not deep, u can swim in nature, not risky as its not deep or there are deep places if you want to challenge yourself. Food is delicious, they change the menu everyday and inform all in advance. 10 out of 10 in food. have only 7 rooms and privacy is like you staying in your private property. i will 100% recommend this as its already done while posting pics and i will also see you guys again, thank you again. keep up the good work.

This is an absolutely beautiful place to spend three nights with family. Please note it is not suitable for elderly people and those with joint problems as they have to walk to the resort which is not accessible by car. The resort is very calm and peaceful, has stream besides it in which you can even take a dip. One trek from the resort takes you to beautiful pond with a small Waterfall which looks very beautiful. This is a must visit place for nature lovers.

Stayed here with family for two nights. amazing place and we all loved it. It might not be suitable for elderly people and people with joint problems who areunable to walk as you need to do at 20 minute walk to reach the resort. But the resort itself is amazing it’s so calm and serene.If you do a 20 minutes trek from the resort u reach an amazing view point with the waterfall which was mind blowing. This is a place not to be missed if you love nature.
