The place has been made so beautifully and is so well kept. "No" word is not in the dictionary of Maini Uncle and the staff, everything you can dream of will be made available and in the best possible manner. Cottages are comfortable, food is delicious(great variety, must try the sweets), bonfire, barbecue all amenities are there. For your entertainment there are a lot of books and games along with the cutest Golf grounds spread out across the property. The view is spectacular, the snow peaks right in front of the property, and you don't want to miss the crazy starry nights. The sky is filled with stars at night. All care is taken with respect to COVID as well, everything felt safe and really amazing!

Overall , a must visit for a mountain lover like me!

we 4 families stayed for 3 days. Its a serene location with chirping of birds welcoming you in the morning. Wonderful view of mighty Himalayas. Being in right time (moon phase) had the chance to see and photograph Milky ways in night. Nice food as per ur choice, mini golf course is added bonus. Good place for Families and young couples as well.

First time I really dont want to write a review for a trip / place / hospitality / food / fun / nature etc. etc.
The reason ... I would not be able to do justice by words to the place / to the beauty / to the people who made it / to the locale / to the WORLD of dreams .....
Hats off Dr. Shivam Maini ... you made this place HEAVEN by HEART .... Loved the concept of NOT PLAYING WITH NATURE ..... The details that you kept for NATURE ... lights, sounds, trails all taking in account of NOT disturbing / troubling / abusing NATURE.
The Cottages are what I would have loved to make a House like .... The furniture . fittings, etc are all praiseworthy. The sit out ares .... The Deck .... The Log House .... The Apple Eatout ..... the Lawns and above all the most facinitating MINI GOLF COURSE .... Out of this world ......
The Only advise to people going there ..... LEAVE YOUR WORLD HERE
enjoy the HEAVEN by HEART.
Sorry didnt do justice as I had said .... Thanks Dr Maini , thank you Pawan ... All Staff , Thank you the beautiful Himalaya view .... Thank you the serenity atound .... Thank you thr little FOX , thank you the quiteness .... Thank you EVERY THING @ Maini's Hill Cottages ---- NATADOL .... Almora .... Uttrakhand

Room tip: ANY ROOM ….. Ground Floor has restricted view but the 1st floor Attic room is MARVELOUS

Dear Dr Shivam, 

Thank you so much for the wonderful break you gave us at Maini's Hill cottages. 

We absolutely loved the beautiful place and the warm hospitality. I was personally impressed with the way you've built the place. I've stayed in some of the best five star resorts in India and abroad, and I can tell you, yours can give each one of them, a run for their money. Moreover, the privacy and customised services your resort offers, can't be provided by these big hotel chain resorts...

I would also like to appreciate your efforts in maintaining the natural habitat for the local flora and fauna and using renewable energy as much as possible. 

I would love to come back to the heaven soon...

Thank you so much once again,

Hari S. Boolchandani

The Maini's Hill Cottages is a heavenly place in Uttarakhand.
I visited with my husband.In this Covid19 crisis we were really looking for a trip to someplace safe,hygienic without compromising the fun and trust me this place didn't fail at all.It was more than our expectations.And the reason behind that it's run by the most humble passionate person Dr Shivam Maini.He personally look into all the guest needs.
Cottages are super clean with all the basic amenities and luxuries you can think of.
Meals served are scrumptious and chef took special care to all our needs.
Staff is very polite and always at our disposal.
The best part was we were at our ease during this whole time of our stay...one can easily rome around the beautiful garden,pluck and eat the organic fruits directly from the trees, laze under the sun,have photography session and yeah not to mention it has Minigolf.
It was so much fun playing the minigolf.Dr Shivam personally taught us the rules.
Cottages have breathtaking views of snow capped mountains peaks.
Would like to visit this place again and would recommend to anyone who is looking for an amazing trip to Uttarakhand with super comfortable stay.
