Itmenaan Estate is a charming lodge which enjoys a tranquil rural setting near Binsar in the Kumaon Himalayas. The property spans some 10-acres of forested highland including virgin pine, oak and rhododendron, terraced fields laden with seasonal fruits and vegetables, and a small year-round natural spring. Accommodation is within a 100-year-old traditional Kumaoni stone house, which has been painstakingly restored and offers 3 tastefully-designed en suite bedrooms. In and around the resort are abundant places to unwind and relax - the courtyard overlooking the mountains and verdant valleys, the semi open-air dining area, plus numerous nooks and corners perfect for reading or enjoying the views. The cuisine is local, North Indian and continental, prepared using fresh produce from the resort's gardens or sourced locally.
