Over an hour from the Riverside including the walk upto the bridge, Soulitude in the Himalayas was first built as their home in the hills by owners Manish and Ratna as their personal hideaway when ever the urge to leave Delhi took over. Slowly Soulitude in the Himalayas was shared with friends and family and soon it was a boutique hotel run with passion and efficiency. The concept behind Soulitude is rejuvenation and hence the location, design and decor of the rooms have consistently evolved around the idea of quietude and space. The names of the rooms and suites reflect personal journeys which extended to self discovery and spiritual progression.
As you drive past Bhowali towards Ramgarh, Gagar is just short of the town and is a spectacular mix of Himalayan views , forests and nurseries with many opportunities for trekking and walking. Just off the road through a carefully manned gate is your access to Soulitude by the Himalayas, a world of quietude. If nature is your retreat, Soulitude in the Himalayas will immediately charm you. There is a sense of precision in the lay-out of the rooms and common areas which complements the quaint decor. Every area on the property entices you to take a closer look while everything is well placed for comfort and views. Here too the little touches charm you, artefacts collected from around the world and some from the family's collection, books on various subjects, art on the wall, the colourful patch-work bed covers and embellished cushions, the sense of arty detailing and thought will surely not be missed. The ten rooms and suites of Soulitude in the Himalayas are distributed in two similar looking blocks with sloping roofs, decks and brief terraces, that seem quiet in sync with the hills around, scooped into steps for farming. The dining room naturally steps down to a lounge on one side and a terrace lawn on the other, ideal for camps fire nights and barbecues. The beautifully tended gardens - collection of climbers and flowering shrubs lead down the hill to a herb garden of thyme, rosemary and stevia. Offered as three categories, each room at the Soulitude in the Himalayas is unique and as reflected on their site, it is an interesting process of discovery to seek exactly that rooms which fits your needs through images, narratives and videos. Your journey begins at the Soulitude website and your sense of awe will continue with you as you make your way to the Himalayas.
Due to its location and concept, the two Soulitude properties are ideally combined as a 4-5 night program between the Riverside at Chanfi and Soulitude in the Himalayas at Gagar. Meditate, walk and trek, watch birds or just be.... there are many ways to discover yourself, Soulitude is one of them.
