This is a place to go when you want to get away from everything that takes away your privacy.

This is a completely private resort without TV, newspapers or internet and offers you the break we often need from our hectic lives in big cities or from the very high AQI's like in Delhi.

There are 12 cottages offering great accommodation - all well furnished and in the midst of a forest of fruit trees setting with great views of the Himalayan mountains on a good sunny day. If you are lucky you may also be visited by a friendly leopard. But we did not have that luck. But we had the opportunity to take walks in the forest and through villages which gave us the opportunity to understand how the people in this region live - the women seem to toil more than the men. You are amply compensated with great home style cooking supervised by Ashish and his equally charming wife, the owners of the resort. They become friends immediately upon arrival and offer the warm and genuine service throughout the stay. Everything is done with a smile by Ashish and he seems not to know the words "no" or "sorry cannot be done". It is a very modestly priced stay but in terms of the service, food and accommodation you get it falls within the five star range of resorts.

My husband and I went to Sonapani in December 2015 and it is tough to identify what I miss more - the place, spectacular views or the food. Both Ashish and Deepa are fantastic hosts and their staff is extremely courteous and always ready to help. The food is yummmmmy and since they make their own breads, jam etc., it is also extremely healthy. You can laze around, read a book or if you are feeling a bit adventurous one can go short day treks.

I stayed at Himalayan Village in Sonapani for two days and was quite pleased with everything. The rooms made like individual cottages are made of mud and stone, with intimate warm light and wooden bathrooms. The staff was very accommodating and everything that they served in food was delightful. The owner's kids Vanya & Aru helped me in picking fresh local berries from the trees and Jhumru, the dog who is a part of the family at Himalayan Village is the cutest. Hope to return again someday.

Surrounded by plum orchards, that drop ripe fruit at your feet, home made jams and preserves and cakes, family dogs, hammocks and bonfires, and even a resident leopard; Sonapani was right out of an Enid Blyton. It gives you as much privacy as you need with no two cottages infringing on each other's space. It also gives you company with a warm bonfire in the evenings and a drinks counter where those who want can share their poison. Owners Ashish and Deepa are around mixing up with guests and sharing stories and anecdotes. Pets are allowed.

Room tip: Rooms higher up the hillside have better views
