An ideal place for a peaceful getaway in the serene Himalayas
A perfect getaway from our busy lives. It is located just a few kilometres away from the Ramgarh market. You wake up to a beautiful view of the hills. The staff is extremely helpful and polite. The food is amazing, we had breakfast and dinner on all the days and it was freshly cooked and delicious. We stayed in the butterfly room located in the Writer’s Bungalow. It is about 100M from the old Bungalow and just a walk away.

Home away from home!

As we have stayed at other Neemrana hotels previously we knew that this too shall be surprisingly enjoyable.
We stayed at 'The Cliff House', which is one of the properties of Neemrana’s Ramgarh Bungalows above Nainital. Having two spacious rooms with balconies and a common sitting area it felt like home for our family. The staff pampered us with delicious local cuisines for dinner. The breakfast too was amazing. Specially the natural Neemrana Jams that are prepared fresh using local organic fruits.
The staff gave us a show around of the complete property which were in proximity to each other., all were walking distance.
The area is dotted with old bungalows and it's a pleasure walking around exploring the region. Coming back to the comfort of 'Neemrana Hospitality' in the evening.
We would love to go back for a relaxing holiday.

A true sample of excellent hospitality!

Without doubt one of the favorite hotels I stayed during my time, Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by the staff and Manager Mr. Shailendra. The staff was extremely friendly, the restaurant was very flexible (appreciate this!). The staff deserves a special thanks. We had two great evenings here, which obviously also added up to the experience. The scenery was beautiful and it was rejuvenating to walk in such a quiet and peaceful environment.
But the atmosphere is so special that it really felt like home to me. All respect for Mr. Shailendra who does a great job here; a true example of excellent hospitality!

"We just returned from a 4-night stay at Ramgarh from 5th to 9th October 2018. It was indeed a wonderful experience. We were really impressed and touched by the immense love and hospitality shown by the team at Ashok Vatika and Cliff House.

Thank you to Shailendraji, Anandji and Basant for making our stay very memorable. Your help and ever willing to help attitude made the difference. Right from guiding us throughout our journey from Binsar to Ramgarh to taking care of every smallest need, the entire Ramgarh team did a splendid job to enhance our experience. Though we had initially planned to stay at the Green room at Ashok Vatika, we actually divided our stay equally between Ashok Vatika and Cliff House. Both cottages had their own charm and character and we liked both as much.

The fabulous views, excellent food and beautiful interiors at both the bungalows were very commendable. We noted and appreciate that Neemrana has taken great care to retain the original aesthetics and heritage charm of the properties. We enjoyed every moment at Ramgarh and wish we could have stayed longer.

Also a word of thanks to the Reservations team, especially Amit Singh Parmar who has been very cooperative in helping us get the desired rooms for our Ramgarh stay. Thank you once again for a great experience."

''We have had an amazing four days, in this uniquely beautiful location. The property is a magical place to escape from the heat and hassle of Delhi. We could not have enjoyed ourselves more – or be better looked after. A marvellous advertisement for the Neemrana group and their marvellous staff.''

“The Ramgarh Bungalows not only exhibits hospitality, but also flaunts the beauty of mother nature. Especially our stay in Cliff House was inexplicable, the view of the quintessential nitty-gritty’s of the Kumaon hills was breathtaking. Thanks for making our special moment so special.''

''Thank you for such a wonderful introduction to India. This was our first ‘hotel’ during our stay from London and what a happy time we have had. The beauty of the surroundings, the gracious and welcome service of all your staff have made us feel very welcome. Your care and attention was so appreciated. All that helped our stay be so wonderful will be remembered. Thank you so much and we are looking forward to visiting the Glasshouse on the Ganges next.''

We are frequent visitors to Ramgarh, and are impressed and delighted with the property every time we come here. The ambience is beautiful, the rooms are lovely and the staff is very caring. Last time we had brought our Labrador Simba who had a very happy time! A wonderful experience. The serenity is very special. Thank you.

''How much we have appreciated this property can be judged from the fact that we have repeated a destination for the first time. We came here last time and this time we had to get our extended families so that they too could enjoy and savour the experience that we had last time. Wonderful place for elders, for children and everybody. Extremely hospitable staff!''

“We ran away from Delhi for some peace and quiet. And we couldn’t have come to a better place. Even though the resort was full, the rooms are contained in different properties. So we could enjoy the peace. The little sit outs are beautiful, the rooms are gorgeous and the service makes you feel so special. The entire staff took care of us well above and beyond the call of duty. We love it here and hopefully will be back soon.”

''We love this place. It’s quaint, charming and completely wonderful! The food was excellent (Peach pie!! Brilliant!). They outdid themselves at dinner every day. The service is good, the staff is extremely sweet and helpful. We are definitely coming back, with friends, family, and alone. Good luck with all your endeavours and thank you for a wonderful time!''

''How much the 4 of us have enjoyed staying here! We have been spoilt and felt protected from monsoon rains in the courtyard, sitting in the easy chairs……We look forward to coming again, when it is possible…."

''This has been the most relaxing holiday/weekend ever. Just the right distance from Delhi. We came for just one night but going back completely rejuvenated and recharged. They take wonderful care of you feel right at home. Personally we prefer The Old Bungalow as it still holds a bit of the old world charm. If you care for a home away from home, long walks, quiet evenings, and peace you couldn’t find a better place. We thank you.''

“The attention to detail was like never before. Each room was distinctive and truly well appointed. The service was understated and unintrusive yet always attentive and on time. Overall the experience is worth repeating over and over.”

''My mother and I spent five delightful nights at Ramgarh Bungalows. We stayed in “Iris” in Vista Villa which is special because of its location and view. The Bungalow itself is quiet and serene, and the profusion of flowering plants, fruit trees and myriads of birds and insects make it all the more charming. But most of all we enjoyed our stay thanks to the care, courtesy, attentiveness, and affection with which we were treated here. It made the stay that much more pleasurable; we felt as though it were home, and not guests at a hotel. I shall certainly return again! Thanks.''

- Arunima, India

''As always with a Neemrana ‘non-hotel’ hotel, we leave refreshed & charged up to face the daily rigmarole of our lives. We stayed in Ashok Vatika (Pink room) and each day was an enriching experience. Right from the early morning sunrise from behind the peaks, to early morning tea with fruit laden trees and birds chirping all around we experienced something different. Our nine year old son had a wonderful time playing in the gardens and trekking down to the Writer’s Bungalow and The Old Bungalow.
The staff were hospitable and made sure that we never felt that we were in a hotel. The room décor, the fixtures, the open terraces – all ensure that the old world charm remains intact. Thank you Neemrana for giving us this opportunity to relive 18th century life.
A special word for the cook who continually churned out great food. Special mention must be made for “bhat ki churkani” and “pasta in white sauce”.
This is our fourth stay in any Neemrana ‘non-hotel’ and we eagerly look forward to the next destination. Thank you to the entire Neemrana staff for this wonderful experience.''

''We have thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing, peaceful stay in an English country garden following a mad 5 weeks sightseeing in Northern India. Thank you.''

“This is my first visit to Ramgarh and a Neemrana property. The whole meaning of ‘The Writers’ Bungalow” falls into place when one experiences the stay. Maybe I’ll need to come back and write a short story or a longer story.”

- Patrick Kerr

''We had a wonderful stay at Ramgarh Bungalows at the Writer’s Bungalow. Bird Suite is excellent. The service is very good. All the staff are very cordial and humble. They give a very warm welcome. The best thing about the place is that there is very much care but no interference. I wish all the best to Ramgarh Bungalows and wish to come back very soon.''
