Newly Added Almora Experience
Excellent
We traveled to Almora with my 3 year old and I am glad there wasn't any extra charge for children of such age. I found it really reasonable and up to the mark. The manager was a polite young man who even asked us about our preference in breakfast.

Almora was on my bucket list and this tour by Thrillophilia made it possible. The amenities were nice and the surroundings of this place were so good that I wished I never had to come back. With views of the mountains, this place is a fantastic getaway in the hills.

The resort is lovely, overlooking Almora town and the valley. Mornings are especially beautiful. A nature walk in the Almora woods was refreshing. I liked my time at the resort. Well, spend 2 days.

If you are looking for a fantasy place than this is a must-try. The way this resort is designed is worth seeing. I have visited with my family. We liked our accommodation-spacious and clean. At the evening we have enjoyed a lot with bonfire and played the indoor games which were well maintained. I really appreciate the staff for that. Booking it from Thrillophilia has given me the best deals with discounted prices as compared to all the websites.

Me and my cousin were on a weekend getaway and one of my colleagues suggested me this property. She has tried it the last winters only. And we have decided to book it through Thrillophilia due to the best deals with activities offered on this platform. We really had a lot of fun there. Their chef is amazing though everything was very delicious I woul suggest to must try their pasta. We have visited all the nearby attractions. Overall a good break from the hectic schedule!

I booked this beautiful resort from Thrillophilia at a very decent price and visited here with my friends and we really had a great time at the resort, along with delicious food well served and presented. Loved everything about the resort. The staff is very helpful. The view of mountains from the room is really breathtaking. It is very good to see Himalayan snow from the hotel itself. The complementary nature trail was worth it.
I just love this homestay!!! I would come back and recommend more friends, the service there was excellent and appreciating.
