You can say it a luxury hotel where you can spend a very good quality time with your friends and loved one. The property is locate far away from the hustle of city where you can forget everything and just enjoy the serene beauty of the mountains.
The complete 180 degree view of Himalayas from your cottage decks with beautiful sun beds in place will never allow you to leave the place anytime. The exquisite rooms of this wonderful property is specially designed to enjoy every single detail of the snow covered mountains in winters and lush green mountains in the summers & monsoon.
Walk down the road to the village and explore the colors of this beautiful location. In winters, mainly in December to second/third week of January you will find a good amount of snowfall there. The roads & the property itself gets sometimes covered with snow which makes it an unforgettable experience for everyone. This village has very less tourist traffic and hence it is a perfect destination to get into an unstressed, calm mode. The renowned poetess Mahadevi Verma lived in Ramgarh (2 kms from Gagar Village) and her home is now converted into a library of her works.
The cottages roofs are specially designed with beautiful skylights to provide an memorable experience of every night you spent at this ultimate property. Just relax in your room and enjoy the perfect view of stars in the night and also with an early morning wake up light to get you ready for another wonderful day at Soulitude in the Himalayas
You can also go for a small day trip to Mukteshwar by asking the resort guys to arrange a paid cab for you. Mukteshwar is 27kms from Soulitude and is a very good place to visit. There you can do many activities like flying fox, trekking, rock climbing. If you are lucky enough and got here in winters then you will find good amount of snow to play with. The views are spectacular from Mukteshwar to get an awesome photoshoot with a lots of selfies….;)
Relax on the beautiful decks of Soulitude Cottages and inspire yourself to do something creative. It is one of the best place to invent the creator inside you. Just feel the beautiful nature all around you and get lost in the scenic beauty. The natural beauty of the surroundings has been a source of inspiration to great writers and artists including Rabindranath Tagore who, it is said, wrote one of his most famous works ‘Gitanjali’ from a hilltop in Ramgarh, where he lived off and on for six years. He planned to set-up Shantiniketan here, but eventually chose his home state, Bengal.
