Food was okay
This property has no maintenance whatsoever . No water in bathroom. No cleanliness , rooms were gloomy , frequent power cuts . Water in private pool was dirty . To my surprise it was quite contrary to what online reviews has to say . This property is almost double the price as compared to other 5 star resorts and half the service . Food was okay . Long story short if you want to have a pleasant stay kindly stay at some other resort with some brand value . This place is insanely expensive with no maintenance ,it's not a 5 star resort by any standard .
We stayed at the luxury cottage for 4 nights in Jan 2020. We had selected this resort based on its reviews and pics, and it turned out be a great choice. The resort is part of the forest itself, with the backside open to rest of the forest (only front side is fenced). You can see a variety of birds within the resort, with frequent visits by elephants (during nights) and monkeys. Leopards are occasionally sighted around the resort, with a rare sighting of tiger in the valley below (few days before we arrived). The cottages are of the traditional variety, with all comforts and facilities associated with 5 star luxury, and well spread out in the spacious resort area. We went for the a-la-carte option for the food, and it worked out pretty well for us. We even opted for the 'Kumaoni thali' for a night, which was a great culinary experience, and the staff made it to be a candle-lit dinner for us. There was a family-like affection when it came to serving or even customizing food, and the taste was always amazing. We even bought their lovely cupcakes and fruit cake (their own bakery) to take back home with us. The highlight used to be the evening 'chahapani', a cozy get-together place where they serve different types of chai and snacks. We had many interesting conversations with the staff and fellow visitors. We went for the full-day hike which was quite tiring but the birds, villages, forest and the final mountain views made it worth the efforts. We also did the Kosi river picnic (saw comorants, kingfishers, etc) and Corbett safari (unlucky to miss a tiger sighting). Coming to the staff, our focal point was Ganesh (one of the naturalists) who became more of a friend than staff. The F&B team (Avinao, Binod and others) was great, and so were all the others, including Santosh and Imran. All in all, a memorable stay for us, and we are already recommending it to our family and friends.
Nothing much to say, can't control the weather (chilly in Jan) or chances of seeing a tiger during safari :)
Staff attitude,location,other activities and need to mention imran naturalist who took very good care of us during the whole stay.will definitely visit again.
Paatlidun is one of the best safari lodge I have ever stayed. They have taken care to see that is nature is preserved as much as possible and at the same time provide luxurious comfort for the guests. The staff there is quite friendly,welcoming and caring. The best part of the stay was the nature walk with Naturalist Imran.
With a stay at Paatlidun Safari Lodge in Ranikhet, you'll be in a national park, within a 10-minute drive of Corbett National Park and Dhangarhi Museum. Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services and luggage storage. Guests may use a train station pick-up service for a surcharge, and free self parking is available onsite.
