Reviewed 27 June 2017

Stayed at this Resort for a day , nice place . But only difficulty we got was they do not allow driver's to stay at the resort nor do they allow the driver to sleep at the car in their premises due to lack of security on the premises as explain by the management . As they don't want to take any risk with outsiders like drivers therefore they have some alternatives for the drivers where they need to pay for it. Disadvantage because as the place is 5-10 mins away so everytime you need the car you need to call the driver and wait. The view from the resort is beautiful. Seneric view of the mountains but please keep in mind you can not see the lake from this resort. The resort is around 3-4 kms from the lake. Rooms were good but the walls are thin so one can easily hear the conversation happening on the other room.

Room Tip: if you have joint problems take the lower floors as 4 storey building.

Thank you Mr. Chandan Baruah, for providing feedback, regarding your stay at The Satvik Resort.
Normally, I make it a point to meet all guests personally and ensure that they are comfortable. However, as our records show that within 20 minutes of check in at 3.45 pm on 25th June, your small group, occupying two rooms, left for sightseeing and returned only post dinner and then checked out by 6.30 am next morning on 26th June, thereby my missing the opportunity to meet up with you.
However as just in your overnight stay, you have raised important points, I shall thus respond quoting from your feedback, to make the response coherent to the diverse points raised by you.
CK Baruah –“Stayed at this Resort for a day , nice place. “
Management response - Thank you.
CK Baruah -“But only difficulty we got was they do not allow driver's to stay at the resort nor do they allow the driver to sleep at the car in their premises due to lack of security on the premises as explained by the management . As they don't want to take any risk with outsiders like drivers therefore they have some alternatives for the drivers where they need to pay for it. “
Management response – Sir, it is not for lack of security, seems to have been a misunderstanding of sorts. We have sufficient technological as well as manpower cover for that. We shall explain why we do not accommodate non guests, such as drivers, within our premises.. Our resort has been designed as a destination resort, 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 time 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, do not charge guest for the same, even though guests have asked us to bill them 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. But as less than 10% of our guests come with a driver, usually by informing us of the driver in advance and working out the arrangements beforehand, we do not think it right to increase our tariff and penalize the 90% guests who drive themselves or come by public transport such as train or plane.

Ck Baruah “Disadvantage because as the place is 5-10 mins away so everytime you need the car you need to call the driver and wait.”
Management response – That we certainly accept that for a driver to arrive in the morning, the guest would have to allow for a 5 to 10 minutes of wait time for the driver to appear from his accommodation. We are really very sorry that this makes it not possible, for a guest with a driver, to drive out on the spur of the moment and that guest has to plan a few minutes in advance.

CK Baruah – “The view from the resort is beautiful. Scenic view of the mountains but please keep in mind you can not see the lake from this resort. The resort is around 3-4 kms from the lake.”
Management response – Sir, we never do advertise our resort as being lake facing, but having a 270 degree panoramic view of the mountain range. Regarding distance from the lake, we beg to differ from what you mentioned as the distance our resort is from the lake. As the gps clearly shows, that The Satvik Resort is only 0.7 km , 10 minutes walk from the lake and only 1.6 kms 5 minutes drive from Daat (lake end)

CK Baruah – ‘ Rooms were good but the walls are thin so one can easily hear the conversation happening on the other room. “
Management Response – We wish to state that all our inner walls have the standard 4" thickness as per construction industry norms and are certainly not thin by any measure. Regarding your being able to hear conversation happening on the other room – Contrary to the saying that even walls have ears, science tells us that sound does not travel through solid wall in any case. It travels through air. We provide great facility for cross ventilation with two wall length large sized windows on eastern and western walls of the room. If someone wants to block sound, all one has to do is close the windows from where the sound can be heard.
We thus hope that neither you nor those reading my response to your review would see points mentioned by you as negative, but a bonus to visit us.

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

Great resort in midst of nature, a perfect escape from busy life . Location is great with super host and staff who will take care of every need.
Food was awesome in fact one of the finest in region . I ordered special kumavani food and it was exceptionally good. Food is prepared then & there which is fresh and delicious.
Location is also great near to bhimtal lake which is a major attraction.
Special mention about host and staff , very polite and take care of every single thing.
Highly recommended.

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
