This place was an amazingly beautiful and comfortable stay. The food was excellent and curated to our taste. The stone cottages have a lovely view of the Himalayan peaks of Uttarakhand. The staff are genuinely helpful - they guided and accompanied us on treks and also helped our 4 year old son climb up the mountains. When my son was tired , the guide Shivraj effortlessly carried him up the mountains! Come here if you are looking for great views, amazing hospitality and delicious food!

It’s rare that one can say, “they really got that right”! Tucked into the hillside a score of miles away from Jageshwar, you drive 3 klicks through a rough unmade road and then climb down from the car park to the Estate. Roses of all hues in clusters welcome you. The chefs are excellent and the service superlative, goaded on by Amit K the GM. A sharp shower and the Nanda Devi showed herself, almost to reward you. With every last detail looked after and the delightful interiors done by the promoter's wife, it was really special. Thanks!

Itmenaan has been beyond wonderful in experience for me! The locations (I stayed at Itmenaan Estate and Fredy’s) are gorgeous. Service and food customised and delivered with care and love. I am coming back in October. PS totally safe and supportive for solo travels. The managers on site Amit (Itmenaan Estate) and Anand (Fredy’s) saw to every detail and listened.

My friend and I spent 3 nights at Thikalna estate and 3 nights at Itmenaan. It was a most exhilarating experience. The two estates offer differing experiences with 2 common elements - great food and excellent service. Itmenaan: the estate is in a beautiful location overlooking the valley with step cultivation as well as rolling hills as far as eye can see. On a clear day the ice capped peaks of Trishul, NandaDevi and adjoining peaks are rivetting. The rooms are extremely comfortable, the service is great and the food excellent. Guests must be aware that the resort is located on a hillside, so climbing up and down to and from dining area is a given. Amit is a superb manager! You can walk and hike peacefully in the surrounding hills - its very safe with very less traffic.

It has been our absolute pleasure & delight to spend time at both Itmenaan Estates & Freddys Bungalow. Our guide/host Amit & all staff went above & beyond to welcome us, make us feel at home & give us a truly memorable experience. We chose to eat the local Kumanoi food which was delicious & so plentiful !! Accommodation was wonderful, with unique historical styles. So much to do & see. We asked to go birdwatching & our host arranged this for us. We were taken to local village homes & drank chai with local folk which was a very special time for us. Thank you so much for helping us to experience your beautiful areas of Binsar & Bhimtal. Mike & Mandy Cooke

My wife and I stayed at Itmenaan, Chalnichinna for 4 nights and it's been the most delightful and amazing experience. The beautiful and captivating property and the surrounding Himalayan view just uplifts your soul. You can hear a calming and soothing silence here. The staff and kitchen defined hospitality and went beyond throughout our stay. The amazing food, most welcoming and accomodating nature of all the staff made it a truly delightful experience. Special thanks to Govindji he made us feel truly at home and conjured up any special requests like a charm! Please do let them know if you are fond of dogs, then they let them roam free around the property and do say hello to Jojo from us, he spent most of his time in our room! We stayed at more aggressively advertised

My wife and I spent 3 nights at Itmenaan Estate staying in Deodar cottage which has amazing views (when clear) over to Nanda Devi and surrounding mountains. Deodar is made from local dry stacked stone for a rustic yet still luxurious place to stay. The craftsmanship is amazing and we had a wonderful time. Yet the most impressive part of our stay was the service from Amit and his team. We had come a long way from Australia and had stayed in some nice 5 star hotels along the way but all of them could learn a lesson from the staff at Itmenaan. They are always smiling and nothing is too much trouble. From bringing a cup of tea in bed in the morning, to guiding us on hikes through the area, to packing and serving picnic lunches or serving delicious meals, everything was done to a
