    The staff is very courteous and warm, the food is amazing, the view is breath taking and the ambiance is unforgettable. Only Vegetarian food and cooked only if you ordered. So foods are always fresh and good in test. Rooms are nice. Good place to bond with your family.
    Negative point is that driver accommodation is not available

    Thank you Sandeep for your kind words.
    We look forward to hosting connoisseurs such as yourself.

    In your review, you have drawn attention to our not accommodating drivers as a negative point and thus please bear with us, as we explain and respond to this.

    We shall explain why we do not accommodate non guests, such as drivers, within our premises.. Our resort has been designed for people to appreciate and connect to nature, be it within the open large balconies provided in front of every room or the tree garden terraces adjacent to the rooms. As you would have seen there is considerable ease of access to rooms and our garden terraces by anyone within our compound. There have been many guests, even single ladies, from India and abroad who have enjoyed their stay for extended periods of months at our resort. Our guests have felt free enough to wander in our gardens and walk in our driveway, be it early morning or late at night. Secured in the belief that their space and privacy would not be invaded upon.
    While we ensure surveillance and security of our common areas, we do not wish to take away from the freedom of movement our guests enjoy within our resort, by having to find drivers sleeping in the cars or sprawled on the benches of our gardens. Or facing any unpleasant encounter with a unverified non guest.

    However as we did arrange for your driver, we do arrange in a short walkable distance, cheap accommodation for drivers at Rs.400 per night. A driver, we believe has every right to a comfortable bed at night, after a long day of driving. We would have gladly absorbed this cost, but for our more than reasonable and highly competitive rates. Despite it, we give complimentary food to the driver and as you will recall, did not charge you for the same, even though you had asked us to bill you for the driver's food.
    If it were a norm for our clientele to drive up along with a driver, we would have surely increased our tariff and incorporated the driver's accommodation cost within our price.

    We also make a point to inform any of our clients who call us, prior to arrival about four things.
    1. We do not have tv in any room, as being a concept resort, we believe that watching tv robs the guests from enjoying the 270 degree panoramic view from their rooms or being in our lovely garden terraces affording them a means to connect to nature and to themselves.
    2. We have no AC in any room, as our mountain resort being 4700 ft above sea level, makes an AC redundant. Also we wish that our guests from polluted cities, enjoy the fresh and unpolluted air, a sure treat for their lungs. We do provide table fans for those who can't do without it.
    3. Our resort is built on step terraces and requires some climbing. However, our steps are very people and climbing friendly. Not more than 6" height of any step, not more than three to ten steps to climb at any time, followed by comfortably long landings. Taking a minute or two to reach the rooms from the driveway.
    4. Driver would be accommodated in nearby market hotel at Rs.400 per night.

    We thus hope that neither you nor those reading my response to your review would see our not having driver's accommodation as a negative point.

    We hope our gentle response is not seen as a rebuttal, but an effort from our side to ensure that our guests carry only a positive experience back with them. Looking forward to hosting you soon again.

    Warm regards
    P.R.Shukla

With super courteous and attentive staff, great vegetarian food, well maintained, clean, artistically decorated rooms, breathtaking view, a calming, mystical vibe, and extremely affordable prices, Satvik Resort is a must stay place for anyone visiting Bhimtal! :)

    Room Tip: Take the rooms on the third floor. The view there is breathtaking!

    I m terming this place as 'average' only coz the staff @ Satvik was courteous, & they did give me good vegetarian food at dinner time. Everything else was abysmal. The Rooms were filthy. Basic amenities were absent.

    Cleanliness in our rooms is a major attraction for our repeat clientele and so the reviewer's claim on that count is unacceptable.
    Re: Basic Amenities being not there. We provide all amenities which can make a guest's stay comfortable, except tv in rooms. This is mentioned in our website as well as other promoting travel portals.

    The reviewer's cause for this unacceptable review most likely stems from the following :-

    The reviewing client Shri Varun Agarwal had written to us on 22nd June 2015 ,directly, asking for our specialized satvik ayurveda holiday plan, but just for two nights. We had responded on 23rd June 2015 explaining that for such a plan a minimum say of 7 days is required and that it is offered only to those who book our suites.Correspondence shared beneath this response.

    The client Shri Varun Agarwal then made a booking, not for a suite but a room and that too for one night only through Makemytrip portal for July 27th 2015, however he arrived with his wife on 27th June 2015 claiming the date mix up due to his mistake.
    Despite a packed resort, we still accommodated the couple in a room category which they had booked.
    This couple then repeatedly demanded to be given a massage, which we can't give in a room but only to those who book our suite as the suites contain massage room.
    Our refusal to entertain this unacceptable request from them has most probably caused them to vent out their frustration through this poor review.

    Dear Shri Varun Kuamar,
    Thank you for writing to us.

    To answer your queries –
    1. whether or not Ayurveda Massage facility is available on daily basis?
    1. We have massage facility available on a daily basis in the abhyangam style but not for detox therapies. We have a male masseur for gents and a lady masseuse for ladies.

    2. do you have ‘spa’?
    2. ‘spa’ refers to a natural environ with fresh air and mineral rich clean water bodies in the surrounding. In that context our resort is surrounded by greenery despite being on the main road leading to Bhimtal and we have cool fresh air with water supplies to our resort coming from many mineral rich spring in the vicinity as well as a lake nearby. We offer Satvik vegetarian food unless guest demands otherwise.


    3. since you advertise yourselves as a Ayurveda Lifestyle retreat, will you provide us guidance over subjects like diet, food, exercise & yoga ?
    3. We do not advertise ourselves as an Ayurveda lifestyle retreat, but more of a romantic destination, a resort whose ambience facilitates closer bonding between couples, helpful in de stressing and good health. Our website does mention our property being a romantic destination.

Massage charges are separately payable at Rs.1200 per 45 minutes massage.
