Each of the 5 large bedrooms sparks off a conversation of its own, welcoming you with queen-sized Takhat beds, cosy fireplaces, handmade wardrobes and comfy furniture. Chintz lamps, cotton durries, patch-work quilts and side-tables made of tree stumps spell love for heritage. Private sit-outs lure the gaze with mountain views.



The Dining Room is the place for togetherness and conversations over hearty, wholesome food. Order authentic Indian meals, local Kumaoni delicacies or international dishes from the vast array of options. Experiment with the untried or indulge with all-time favourites. Everything in the kitchen is homemade with fresh, organic ingredients and spices.

We came for a short break to Bara Bungalow and it was wonderful, to say the least. The team made sure it was one of the most memorable trips. Thank you for making it so beautiful.

We came here for a short break from our daily hectic WFH IT life and this short break became the best memory of our life thanks to Bara Bungalow. The hospitality is so good. This place is worth a second and third and fourth visit.

Thank you so much for making us feel at home. Must compliment the chef, helping staff and organising staff of the property. Amazing food, homely atmosphere! Few discrepancies were there which when discussed were well taken off. Appreciate it. Keep up the good job. See you soon!
