One of the most beautiful properties in the abode of nature we ever stayed at. 'Shivaya' is now a feeling to us rather than just being a name for a homestay. Have witnessed wonderful snowfall, rain and sunshine here!
A beautiful place with a welcoming host who becomes a good friend in no time, hardworking and polite staff, good food with amazing view and to top it all, three playful furry friends to cheer you up.
Love - Barfi, Max, Simba ❤
Thank you Saurabh Bhai & Shivaya Yall made my 10th Special

Six of us stayed for over 4 days hoping we could extend it indefinitely! The location is at a cliff which guarantees beautiful views and serenity, weather is beautifully unpredictable and the stay was beyond comfortable. Deepak and Pankaj are skilled cooks of amicable nature. Though the suites don't have enough ventilation, we'd mostly sit outdoors. Saurabh, the host, is friendly and has interesting stories to tell.
The best part? Ladoo and Barfi, the fluffy and friendly canines. And I hear more are going to join the gang!
Definitely worth a stay!

Tip: carry newspapers to wrap used clothes you'd want to reuse as there's dampness inside the rooms. Not a dealbreaker though.

We (family of 3) stayed in Shivaya for a week in the month of May. The home stay was so comfortable that we did not want to leave.
The best part about the property is it’s location - turn around the corner from KMVN Corbett bungalow and 2 mins walk down a quaint trail takes you to this vintage property surrounded by the forest. It is right next to a school, a temple, a health centre - yet so isolated, serene and peaceful.

We enjoyed simple yet delicious fresh cooked food in the open dining area along with the awesome unobstructed views of mighty Himalayan ranges. The best sunrise and sunset points in Mukteshwar were hardly a 5 minutes walk from this place.

Rooms are small and cosy but do provide all the comfort. Full marks for Clean good quality bed linen and well equipped bathrooms with running hot water.

The hosts are a young couple - very friendly and being natives can help you with recommendations for hikes and nearby drives. They are ready to play along, go for nature walks or give you your own space as per the guests.

In all, highly recommended. Good value for money.
You may want to carry some supplies of chips, snacks or fizzy drinks as the place true to its theme is completely ecofriendly and organic.

I am just so glad we finally decided to go to Mukhteshwar and chose this beautiful homestay. Shivaya is everything warm, welcoming and wonderful. We stayed in the mountain view room and woke up to beautiful mornings. The rustic vibe , the structure and the make of the room was absolutely lovely. But more than the property, we fell in love with its people. Sundar, deepak and pankaj are the cutest boys who will make you feel at home. The food is just yummm. Please please try the chai, the maggi, the aloo paranthas, the pakoras and the Apple toddy(carry rum ;). Saurabh and Kriti have built this beautiful homestay with a lot of passion and love and it shows in the way they interact with every guest. We stayed back a day extra to spend time with them and explore the nearby hidden architectural gems that saurabh so warmly took us to visit. Saurabh had given us a list of everything we needed to know about the place and his reccos were spot on. Do try the authentic kumaoni thaali at chandi maati and do not miss the stunning sunset at chauli ki jaali which is literally next to Shivaya. How can I not mention the cuties- barfi and jamun. The property is pet friendly and has the sweetest doggos who shower you with all the love. Shivaya has an amazing energy and I would highly recommend it to everyone who likes things raw, rustic, and is looking to find peace by being close to nature. Cannot wait to visit this place again.
