A very beautiful property which offers the best cosy rooms with a view of snow capped Himalayas. We stayed there for a week and had a great experience which made us feel warm with all the love and efforts they put by the management. Highly hospitable and room service was excellent. We are a family of 4 looked for a peaceful stay away from the crowd and we have striked the correct place. Food served is just delicious both Indian and continental. Freshly served has one of the best quality. Lunch is my favourite as they tempted me to have a full fledged meal. Staff is another favourite part of our stay. Whole staff especially Amit and Bhavna are very sweet and loving. Amit took our family to guided walks around the property, showed the view points, waterfall and the naugoan village. He was extremely helpful to all our requirements and handy whenever we need something. Staff was continuously checking on us and literally like pampered us throughout our stay. I feel they offered more than what we have given for the whole staycation, the amenities, service, food which made us feel so special to have a peaceful holiday.…
I travelled with a small group of friends to Itmenaan Estate in April 2022. The location is magical. Yes, it's worth the long ride getting there. Rooms are simple yet comfortable. The bathroom is really beautiful. Morning tea with the mountain view is really amazing! All the meals were very good, the local Kumaoni dinner was exceptional. Meals were served at different beautiful locations around the estate, one dinner was under the star lit sky... The staff are exceptions - very attentive, very obliging, And we were treated to the majestic beauty of Nanda Devi during our stay. The icing on the cake! Can't wait to get back. Thanks Itmenaanlodges for your wonderful management of our booking. And thanks to all the staff for the pampering!!
This is an absolute gem of a place, and the pictures can't even convey even half the vibe of this beautiful property and the hospitality they provide. The rooms are great too, with all the modern amenities you can experience in a 4 star hotel. I stayed for three nights during a bike trip - relaxing and unwinding. Had a peaceful and overwhelming stay with such a incredible view of the Himalayas, the food was fabulous and the staff was very helpful - Amit and his team were always ready and available at our disposal when we needed anything. Highly recommend to go and explore Itmenaan Estate once whenever you go to Uttarakhand.
We stayed at the property for 3 nights towards end April. We were received very well and were well cared for. The staff at the resort are very nice and go out of their way to attend to your needs. The Indian & Kumaoni food preparations are very nice. Chinese and continental dishes are best avoided. The resort provides you with a dongle for wifi surfing which works reasonably well. However, the facilities, for the price charged are totally inadequate. We stayed at the Pine Cottage. There is a ramshackle cupboard without hanger arrangement for clothes. No hooks to hang clothes. Furniture, though adequate is of poor quality. All in all we were disappointed. The stay is good for trekking. There is little else to do.
Without doubt one of the favourite Estate, I stayed during my time in Uttarakhand! Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by the staff and manager. The staff was extremely friendly, the restaurant very flexible (appreciate this!) and the restaurant supervisor deserves a special thanks. We had two great evenings here, which obviously also added up to the experience. The majestic view of Himalaya especially the peaks (Nand kot and Nand khat) from rooms was so mesmerizing. The second day we did a village trekking which was guided by Amit, who works as a manager in the hotel as well. Amit is such a warm personality, highly motivated and enthusiast person I have ever seen. I truly enjoyed walking the three of us through the village. The scenery was beautiful, and it was a relieve to walk in such a quiet and peaceful environment. Note, this is not a 4/5-star hotel or so, but the atmosphere is so special that it really felt like home to me. All respect for the manager who does a great job here, a true sample of excellent hospitality! Staying in Itminan Estate is such a divine experience that can only be sensed, words are too small to describe. The sky, adorned with stars and sun The world, full of so many lives Within this glorious vast expanse Here I am, with a place to be, a role to play I am amazed and wondering, I see my song find itself here… ∼ Ravindra Nath Tagore…
It is the most amazing experience we ever had. This place is extremely beautiful, quite and located in kumaon himalayas. The property, food and hospitality were just astonishing. The himalayas view from the window is simply awesome. The food has variety and each and everything was finger licking. Property manager Amit took very good care and attended to every request. What differentiate Itmenaan from others is the genuine care and attention of each staff member, their hospitality was beyond words. Totally, calm and quite with best experience away from the daily hustle of life. If you want to relax and rejuvenate in nature's lap, this is the place.
The most perfect experience & the most perfect hospitality you can imagine! The place is beautiful beyond words & so is the small lovely hamlet it's situated in .. Away from all commercialisation! It's ok definitely-recommended list! But just ensure people traveling are fit enough to do the trek to the estate and back.. Senior citizens & kids not recommended for this place.
We stayed at Itmenaan Estate late last year and have been meaning to review them since then. It was certainly a good experience at Itmenaan! The property, food and hospitality were on point and the vibe of the place is very nice. We really appreciated the cleanliness and hygiene of the place in particular. I have visited many hill properties and Itmenaan will always stand out and stay a good memory.
What caught my eye most was the uninterrupted & astonishing valley view from our cottage Deodar. It's breathtakingly beautiful in many ways. To be able to see the infinite range, with the various gaon on top, which lit up by night is just picturesque! The night sky brings with it the 'little bear' and other constellations making each night special. The food was finger lickling local cuisine. The meats fresh (on request) and staff/service benevolent. Property interim manager Bhavna took very good care and attended to our every request warmly. Faithful canine friend Chintu kept my 4 year old company throughout. Only thing that was inconvenient was the walk to the property due to construction reasons which should be solved in some months it seem. So we stayed put at the property and enjoyed short treks instead. Goes without saying we ll definitely return, once the car route gets made ofcourse! PS: since the property is middle of nature be prepared for lots of bugs/ large insects…
What stands out for Itmenaan is the genuine care and attention by each member of the staff. A friend and I stayed at the property for 6 nights in July 2021. There are a total of 5 rooms, all well maintained and clean. The staff is warm and friendly, customising all experiences as per your need. There is a 20 min downhill hike to reach the property and the approach road is in construction. This was a bit of a dampener, as it meant hiking uphill for almost 40 min everytime you want to step out. Overall a totally calming and beautiful experience, away from the hustle. Do try the many hikes in and around the property - the waterfall one was a stand out for us.
