Reviewed 10 June 2017 via mobile

Our visit to Ayush Guest House in May 2017 was for three nights but we ended up spending 5 nights at this beautiful place. The guest house is a mini sanctuary in itself. They don't boast of luxury hotel kind of service but you get almost everything that's required. Fresh towels, soaps, tissues, bed linen, neat rooms, hygienic bathrooms and a very homely atmosphere. No TVs and limited mobile networks. In short, perfect place to unwind your stress. This place is not for people who have difficulty climbing up and down since there is a steep uphill climb of about 500 meters to reach the parking venue. But a great place for families like ours who love trekking. We took one of the rooms from the Nest area and we had a lavish valley right in front of our rooms. The weather didn't support much else we would have had the pleasure of watching the Himalayan range right outside of our room. I am an avid bird watcher and I happened to click almost all of my Himalayan birds inside this Guest House. The best one being a Tragopan and a Khalij Pheasant. The staff is very hospitable and the owner Raju Bhaiya and his family are such warm people. They make sure to provide you almost everything that you need. They have independent cottages, double decker rooms to normal twin sharing rooms. We have already decided to visit them once again sometime soon and spend at least a week in this quaint little piece of heaven in the hills. All in all, one of the best places to stay in Almora on Binsar Road.

I salute to his customer delight service, his thoughtfulness & vision. Name the thing or service & it is available .... a real ginnie - "Raju Bhaiya".
Amazing experience it was! to get something the best you need to take some pain reaching till resort, this could be little difficult for few as U need to walk down the hill for almost 800 meters & uphill to approach the tar road. but I would say this is the most unique , enjoyable approach to any resort & that's truly makes it special. Well thought room design, Small garden & sitting area for every room, common dining with small interesting library. The food is cherry on the cake. Meals served with dome diff variety, salads,Indian food parathas, pizza ( freshly baked base), pasta, Apple pie with vanilla ice cream......& what not. dining table it full of various pickles, chutney, jam & herbs.

Tea time menu- Variety of green tea, coffee the way you want just fabulous.

This is the best nature resort have ever visited. Basically the location makes it more unique not very far from Almora yet isolated. Lovely Himalayan birds chirping is the alarm, morning tea with sunrise gives an exotic experience.
I found my heaven to be there at least once a year.

We stayed two nights at the guest house in April 2017. What we savored the most is that this place is not over engineered. Raju has retained the rusticness of the place without compromising on the comfort. Not much to mention about the rooms, as they are basic, value for money. However, Raju offered extremely customised services to ensure we enjoy our stay. All the food was cooked by Raju & his wife, with a lot of ingredients sourced from his own land. We went a little off track enroute Almora. Raju called us every few minutes to ensure we are safe. Would have loved to stay there longer.
PS - It's not at a very high altitude, making it a little hot during summers.

Room Tip: Though there are cottages with kitchenette, would suggest staying in individual rooms as they have a...

Stayed their from 26th Dec to 30th Dec 2016 - "home away from home" are the correct words to express the experience. Throughly enjoyed the hospitality of Raju and his team. Look froward to visit the place again.

Raju's guest house, Ayush, tucked in the (Kumaon) valley at the base of the Himalayas, is a beautiful gem. The architecture is unique and creative, blending in local life (farmers and their cows!) with tiny little homes for rest and shelter. Raju is a wonderful cook and host - even though the space feels a bit remote, you are in touch with all things in the area - and he'll easily get you a driver or connection to wherever you need to go. The two things I would say are on the challenging side are: the lodgings are only accessible by foot for about a half mile's walk through the surrounding hills (though he and his staff will transport you and your luggage when you arrive) and some of the spaces can get chilly in the winter. I think all in all if you want a down home feel, with a canny, cosmopolitan flare, this is your spot!

Room Tip: Choose the smaller rooms in winter (for warmth).
