We, 3 families of 4 each, went for a much-needed getaway and to spend the new year vacation to Faraway Renz located beyond Jim Corbett off Ramnagar – Ranikhet highway nested in the woods for 5 days. We found the property through a mutual contact and got in touch with Ms. Sangeeta who was extremely helpful and addressed all our concerns regarding travel and stay arrangements.

We started at 5 in the morning and reached around 4 PM after stopping for both breakfast & lunch. The roads were smooth all along and only got a little rough towards the end. There were plenty of signs that led us to our destination in the hills.

One of the owner Mr. Rishi was there to receive us with his brother. The real love started when we moved towards the rooms as we were still a little apprehensive about the whole place, but the rooms were a real surprise as all the 6 rooms were clean, spacious and had all the necessary things in place for our stay with direct view of the mountain peaks.

We were all mesmerized by the location of the homestay, the view was just breathtaking. The caretaker Prem Singh bhaiya is a gem of a person, he fulfilled all our unending demands with a smile on his face even when we asked him to provide with all necessary stuff when our children wanted to make their own Chula and make food on that, even if it meant so many rounds of up and down the hill. We are a group of foodies who love to both cook and eat good food and so, were a little apprehensive about the food. But the cook Jaswant is absolutely amazing. To our surprise, every dish that he made was so yummy that we always had our stomachs full but not our hearts. Our children became a fan of his cooking especially the French fries which we had almost every day, and the Pahadi Mutton was to die for.

The place is well equipped with games like Table Tennis, Carrom, Cricket, board games and so many other games to keep everyone engaged.
One of the highlights of the place was the moonrise, which believe me, we had never seen before anywhere, it was the real beauty of the nature. The sky was clear for most of the days and full of stars where we sat for 2 days in a row to see the different constellations and to our surprise we could see “satellites moving” without any telescopes(never thought of that).
Overall, it was a memorable holiday for all of us and we came back happy and refreshed, we will definitely want to visit the place soon again.
Thank you team Faraway.

It was one of the best stays in the mountains that I had in recent times. The smell of foliage, the sound of cricket, the just right temperature of the autumn sun and amazing hospitality by Prem ji and his team made it a memorable stay. I came back wishing I should have planned a longer holiday. It was a calming soothing balm on my tired heart. I would highly recommend this stay for connecting with yourself. Do nothing. Feel the embrace.

Room tip: All the rooms have great views but with room 6 you get a small patch of land to sit out, exercise :)

Stayed for 2 nights at the Bungalow with senior citizens. Was very lucky that I had a clear view of the snow clad peaks for full one and a half day right from the living room and a thousand stars under clear sky at night.
Located on the slopes and its a 5/5. Food is 5/5 , I was served nice homely food. Rooms (The bungalow) 4/5 reducing 1 point just because there is a room for improvement towards crispness. Cleanliness :5/5. Staff: 5/5
Dinning area: 4/5
An important thing for first time visitors, please not that this isn't a full frills Luxury hotel. Its a place where the staff tries their level best to serve your needs. Surprisingly the whole place is run by a 5 member staff team, who are always smiling. The co-owner Mr.Rishi is very helpful and cooperative person and approachable, if you have any doubts just ask him.
Over all i enjoyed my stay.
ROOM TIP: Senior citizens or people with mobility issues or leg problems should only choose Bungalow as it is on same level of dining and a more bigger flat area.
The other type of rooms require a ramp to walk and the floor is of cemented stone.

We visited this place in a group of about 30 people in May ‘19. As our group was big, Mr. Rishi Sanwal (our host) arranged a few rooms in some private property nearby. Both places had amazing rooms with beautiful views outside. The rooms are perfectly done with all basic amenities. Cleanliness was properly taken care of.
The entire property is tastefully done with different varieties of plants and trees.

The staff at the property is very adjusting and helpful. They even served us at 12 midnight that also with a smiling face. The food served was really amazing..

Rishi and his wife are a wonderful host...

Will definitely recommend this property

Amazing destination to relax. Very well kept, neat and clean rooms. Mr. Rishi and his wife were warm and courteous.
We were a huge group of around 20 people, well taken care of all our needs. We all relished nice home cooked food and evening snacks. Bonfire at night and lovely cool weather made our stay even more memorable.
