Nestled on a quiet hillside in Gagar (near Nainital), Soulitude, as the name suggests, provides complete solitude for the soul. Face-to-face with the mighty Kumaon Himalayas, instills within an all-pervading quietude that transforms and transports one into the world of ‘Soulitude’. The experience of just being at Soulitude with spectacular 180-degree snow views, fresh mountain air, long walks, good food and warm hospitality will rejuvenate your mind, body & soul. Soulitude has just the right ambience for rest, relaxation and fun. It is ideal for those looking to get away from the clutter of the city….. to slow down….. rejuvenate….. and simply be ! Soulitude offers a bouquet of 10 exquisite rooms with all the luxuries of a fine mountain retreat. We hope the Soulitude experience will be one that you will cherish and want to come back to for more !

We had an excellent stay at the Soulitude, Himalyas. The property is perfect for couples, families and friends who are looking for relaxation in the midst of mountains. We had booked a cottage which had 3 bedrooms, living area, study and kitchen and was perfect for us. The rooms are done up very tastefully. The views of mountains and snow covered peaks from each deck is simply breathtaking. The manager Bhanu Pratap Singh and the entire staff was very courteous & helpful. He organised an evening bonfire for us and also organised a trip to their Riverside property (which is equally beautiful) where we went for lunch one afternoon. We really enjoyed our short break at Soulitude and wished we could have extended our trip and spent couple of more days. Highly recommend and would like to visit again 👍

No doubt solitude riverside and Himalayas are in one of the best location & one of the best infra in Gagar and chafi near Ramgarh. The idea of solitude design is unbeatable at times it make & still now. BUT ...now today it lacks in all aspects of management and ownership.... They are just overhyped............. I make my booking directly through hotel website for me and my family with small kids....but surprised when we reached there ,,,they said your booking is now cancelled.......and we booked ur room for other people who required three ROOMS...!!!! ... they paid full money............shame........ After many request room was available......surprised....!!!!! why such a situation ...because there is no MANAGER at riverside solitude....all is look after by lower staff............all they get all direction from solitude Himalayas.. SO "YES "...….YOU ARE ALONE...…. Then next day we moved to Solitude Himalayas.....as they had availability there .........as they said...... But next morning when i said we were moving outside and please clean our room.... at that moment only MANAGER Abhy run after our car ,,,& said you have to leave our room as rooms were booked by groups again and they paid full........ DISGUSTING.................... now after check out you are not suppose to stay at hotel anywhere not even you can have LUNCH......EVEN NOT FOR POOR KIDS YES.....You are ALONE again............. As we have kids with us....still Heavy loud music and drinking going on in garden all day...and no one bother...after many request... "YES "..... YOU ARE ALONE........ The food available is just ok and limited menu. GIST : NOT AT ALL GOOD FOR FAMILY TRAVELLERS, best suited for groups ,couples and DRINKERS '

Response from Manish Chandra, Owner at Soulitude in the Himalayas
Responded 1 week ago
This guest never had a confirmed booking at Soulitude. Room was initially blocked for him but he refused to confirm the reservation in advance and did not pay the deposit, and the block on the room was released after intimating him in writing. He nevertheless reached the property without reservation. Despite our policy of not accepting any walk-in guests, he was allotted the only room available for 1 night at the Riverside and another room for 1 night at the Himalayas. He had an enjoyable stay at both locations and did not raise any service related issues during this visit. The rest is pure fiction. We do not accept any guests without a confirmed reservation, even more so due to our Covid protocols. We are surprised at this review.

Soulitude is true to its name, as it offers outstanding views and extreme peace in the property. the rooms are beautifully done and all the rooms have a unique thing to them. we had gone for a family Vacay so had a beautiful time here. Nirvana is the best room there with best views and biggest too. its perfect for couples to stay here but would not recommend anyone with toddlers as its a climb from the main house. the only thing i would like to mention is that they should add more variety in food as its far from the main city so would prefer more options for different taste buds. though the food they served was outstanding,

Soulitude in Gagar, Ramgarh, is a beautiful set of cottages and villas landscaped into the hillside and overlooking lush green valleys and snow-capped peaks in the distance. We stayed in the 3 bedroom cottage which we took entirely for our group. This made for a particularly comfortable stay as we had the run of the 3 rooms, the living room and dining area, the beautiful sunroom which is a great place to work out of, as well as the huge deck right outside. There is a large kitchen as well but it has no supplies so there isn't much you will be able to cook for yourselves. I've knocked a star off for the food, which was pretty uninspiring - mostly paneer butter masala and chilli chicken type of fare, which is unfortunate when local pahari cooks are capable of so much more! There is a set menu for lunch and dinner. We went for two very nice walks: one short, easy 7km return stroll into Kuleti forest reserve from where you get great views of Bhimtal. The other was a 6km return short and steep climb up to a Devi ka mandir on top of the hill. The walk is through a beautiful forest and the views from the top can apparently be spectacular though we ran into some mist. Took us about 40 mins up, but it is pretty steep. If we had stayed longer we would have gone for several more walks in the surrounding area. The driveway to Soulitude is also super steep but we made it! There is also no sign at all visible from the main road so do keep an eye on your phone map.
