The Kumaon, Almora
Our rating: Premium | Property style: Hotel
Located on a ridge above the historical city of Almora, the stunning Kumaon is a peaceful retreat in the heart of the Himalayan foothills. This high end lodge attracts artists and nature lovers, philosophers and historians, set along the ancient route between Tibet and India and surrounded by endless forest and magnificent mountain views. The 10 spacious suites are spread along the hillside, with floor to ceiling windows and outdoor seating areas to maximise on the surroundings. The spectacular vistas continue from the property's one restaurant - the Amaranth - beautifully designed and offering a taste of the local cuisine as well as international dishes. Guests can enjoy an abundance of activities, including numerous hikes along nearby mountain trails, visits to the historic hill station of Almora, or early morning leopard-spotting in the Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary, and much more. There is also an on site spa offering a range of treatments using organic products made from local apricot-oil extract, as well as the opportunity to salute the sun as you enjoy some yoga overlooking the peaceful valley.
