Newly Added Bhimtal Experience
Anal Dwivedi Cottages In Ranikhet
I don’t think that even the best 5 star hotels in Ranikhet would have offered the kind of view that we got right from our room during this stay! Just no words, it felt like the mountains were right in front of us. We loved the peace and quiet here, especially having come from Delhi, where there is so much noise and traffic, so this was definitely a relaxing experience for us, and I definitely recommend everyone travelling to Ranikhet to try out this stay!
Great experience, well priced. The service and hospitality of Thrillophilia was commendable. Thanks to our camp guide Jagan, who was very attentive to all our needs and very patient. He also tildes amazing stories at night, stories about the local temples and mountains and some myths and folklores of the region. The mansion is breathtaking, a true colonial masterpiece. There’s also a lot of history to the mansion. The view from there is very pretty, with tall mountains everywhere. It was lush and green all around us, with chilly nights. It was the best weekend for my family and me - 11 of us. Thank you.
We had such a nice time staying in Ranikhet last month. Out Thrillophilia agent, Rani, handled all the booking and we didn’t have to do anything. We got there and we just fell in love with the place. The rooms were super authentic and the entire surroundings of the area were so green and fresh. We went on a 16km river raft which was super fun and we also took a dip in the clear river near our stay. We ended the day with a nice dinner. It was truly a beautiful experience.

Love the hospitality and friendly nature of the owner and the caretakers which was extremely kind and helpful. Must-Stay...
Without a doubt, this has to be the most beautiful place I have ever stayed in. Right from our room, we had a great access to the view of the Himalayas and it was better than we even imagined it would be. Everything from the hospitality, the rooms to the food was well arranged too, and our manager Yash made sure that every need of ours was catered to.
