Nayalap in the summers is a whole different feeling. Relax in the shade of the large oak trees. Enjoy some of our delectable fresh juices and cold soups. Take hikes into the forest of to villages. Laze around in the hammock or on your bed. Spend the day in the lounger reading a book. Nayalap, like Kumaon, is perfect for the summers.

Nayalap is situated the tranquil Kumaon region. The drive via Ranikhet is scenic and mesmerizing. We spent the whole day lazing around listening to brid songs and chasing butterflies. But what really takes the cake is the amazing hospitality and locally sourced food. It was refreshing to munch on these local delicacies prepared to perfection. Would definitely recommend visiting this amazing place. We had a nice little surprise waiting for us on our dinning table. Visit Nayalap and find out.

If you are looking at a place with all the comforts and as close to nature as it can possible get then don't think further and visit Nayalap. If we were to sum up our stay in one word it would be "blissful". The tents are comfortable, the food is simple homely but delicious ( our kids chose this food over pizza which they can organise during our stay there), the service standards of Chandan, Prem and babloo are nothing less than Taj, we were told yes for everything with a smile and both Tanuja and Anindya are really warm host who have put their heart behind creating this heaven... It reflects in every corner of the property. There are many day activities like treks picnics they can plan which are really good or else even if you were to just venture out of the property in the pine forest it's beautiful. And if you are a dog lover they do have resident dog Romeo and Elsa who literally made our trip even more worthwhile !

Nayalap is a beautiful, restful place to be. One can sit outside the tent for hours just watching the trees, the valley, listening to bird song, just being with nature. There are several walks/ short hikes around, for those who are interested in exploring the pine and oak forests. The accommodation itself is very aesthetically designed with natural materials and is super comfortable. Both Anindya and Tanuja are welcoming, prompt and very accommodating hosts. Their love for the place is palpable. The team, especially Chandan ji, was extremely hospitable. He generously served us delicious healthy pahadi meals, and always enquired about our preferences. All in all, a truly recommended experience!

A wonderful and unique experience at Nayalap made our trip a special one. The serenity of the place makes everyone capable enough to search the innerself and ofcourse an introspection. Nature at its best there make you feel like heaven. Everything is so pleasant there. Thank you so much

Luxurious tents ,beautiful place Shitlakhet , amazing food , nature at its best and peace of mind. Tanuja is a great host and the boys team is equally good. Highlight of the stay was celebrating my birthday at the lovely riverside place which Tanuja organised. Picnic lunch between the valleys. Food served at the picnic was tasty pahadi khana. Hope to visit this place again which is surrounded by the great Himalayan mountain range . Very good glamming place . Should go for it 👍🏔⛺️💃

My boyfriend and I visited Nayalap for my birthday trip this November and had the best experience ever. From gorgeous views, tastiest meals, most friendly and helpful hosts (Tanuja and Anindya) , super comfortable luxury tents - you will get it all. They also do special picnic lunches and candle light dinners. Our car broke during the stay and Tanuja and Anindya went out of their way to help us with mechanic, car pickup, transportation back to Delhi and what not. Wish I could gave an extra star for the hosts themselves :) We recommended the place to all are family and friends and looking to visit again soon :D

We had a fabulous experience. Thanks to the fantastic, ever smiling Chandan and the cook Prem who fed us delectable pahadi food! This is the place to go if you want to be surrounded by pine forests, birds, butterflies and the mighty Himalayas. Also, special thanks to Tanuja for taking us for a rejuvenating walk through the mountain forests. The view of the meadow was worth every heavy breath and aching muscle.

To start with, i would first like to appreciate the exceedingly warm and hospitable owner of this wonderful nayalap experience,tanuja , who goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable and at home. now coming to nayalap,  so pleasantly surprised by the whole tent experience. we travel a lot, but this was a first and one of a kind experience for us.. the tents and so well equipped and cosy, with comfortable bedding and separate dining area, which gave us picturesque views of nanda devi and trishul, and we took a few stunning forest hikes too . .amidst the greens, this is a perfect place to rejuvenate your mind soul! very cooperative staff who ensured all our needs were well taken care of. with breathtaking views all  around the tent, amongst the oak trees and the pine forest, and the blue magpies, we enjoyed the silence and it was indeed a pleasant break from the noisy city life.. ease of ample parking and a hi speed wifi for people who want to work from home, being away from home.. the best part was the non manicured lawns,which were left the way it's supposed to be in a himalayan forest. perfect place for people who like solitude. i definitely recommend people to visit this place in shitlakhet, who like offbeat and quiet places and i could easily stay there forever, and i mean it.. keep up the good work.. highly recommended

Nayalap is a small tastefully done set up 30 kms from Ranikhet. This place is perfect for people who wish to stay low , enjoy nature walks, trails, village visits and avoid any kind of city hustle bustle. We visited with our 7 year old son and it was such a relaxing experience. The food in the place is all local kumaon food so if you are someone who like to explore their taste buds, you will have a blast! For fussy eaters, there are less options within the place but mainstream cities like Ranikhet, Almora within 1-2 hours drive. Our best experience was the walk through the jungle to meadows on top of a mountain and a village visit. The views of nanda Devi from the place are mesmerising and made for beautiful morning & evening views. The tents are definitely better done up than most of the hotels and every comfort is well thought of - Spacious , comfortable, Heaters, proper table for 4 to eat etc ! The sit out area is also amazing specially in the sun. I would love to go back and this time with some friends and family!
