The location was amazing with the views of the Himalayas from our room and balcony. The staff was very courteous, helpful, and the FOOD was very good. They even prepared a dish with sponge gourd upon my son's ad-hoc request (apparently sponge gourd [torai] is my son's favourite vegetable :) ). If you like trekking you can trek to the Zero Point to get more expansive views of the Himalayas (we were unlucky as there were clouds covering the views, however got a good view from our room itself). It was cold and the staff would light up the bukhari (fireplace) at night in the room and provide hot water bags under our feet! Mr. Preetam who runs the property and stays there is such a nice person, and we had some good conversations with him over breakfast, lunch, tea, and dinner! The Binsar Forest Retreat is inside the wildlife sanctuary, and you have to pay an entry fee while entering. You have to drive inside for about 6km and then the last 600m is very tricky, and that is why they transport you in their jeeps. If you love offroading and arrive in your 4x4 (proper 4x4), you should try this last 600m route in your car :)
Airtel has very bad cellular reception and there is no wifi in the rooms. You get wifi near the dining area though. Also bring your powerbanks as there are no electrical points and appliances in the room (just switches for lights) - but this was informed to us well in advance, so we were prepared.

Overall, we loved our stay. The host and and the staff are super warm and nice. Food was fabulous!
Great location amidst nature. Hospitality and food was simply out of the world! Carrom and board games in the dining room really brought back the childhood feeling!
Wish the property had better views. One charging point in the room wouldnt hurt.

This is one of the best places to get connected with nature and yourself. This resort is situated within the Binsar wildlife sanctuary amidst dense Oak and Rhododendron trees.. There are lot of amazing trails which give you a chance to explore the flaura and fauna within the sanctuary. One wakes up to mesmerizing views, fresh air and birds chirping all around you. The best part of our stay was meeting Preetam and Pallvi, owners of this place. One of the most humble hosts who made our stay a treat with memories of a lifetime. You will get freshly prepared Kumaoni food with some choices for kids. We were a family of 4 and my kids (12yr) enjoyed every bit of it. They experienced nature and learnt about the forest ecosystem, thanks to Pallavi for taking us on a 6KM trek. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a peaceful and serene stay within the forest.

Great times at Binsar
Great place if anyone wants to enjoy hills and nature from the closest. Great team managing the resort. Reaching the place can be challenging for some, but once there, then there is no issues. All things that matter all well taken care of.
Nothing as such. Rooms are clean, food is tasty and wholesome. The team managing the resort is doing an awesome job.
