Tree of Life Grand Oak Manor is nestled in the Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary in the Kumaon hills (Uttarakhand), 25 kilometres from Almora. It was in 1856 that the then British Commissioner of Kumaon, General Sir Henry Ramsay, cousin to Lord Dalhousie, the Viceroy of India, acquired this piece of land and built his private home. In 1931, the property was purchased by Rai Bahadur Harkishan Lal Sah Gangola and has stayed in the family since.
Valley View Hideaway Room 16,572/- per couple per for 2 nights
Done in an old-style charm, the 9 Hideaway Rooms are 350 sq.ft each, laid along high ceiling corridors. Teak wood furniture, bright bedspreads and rugs, and cosy fire-side armchairs - all reminiscent of a genteel age. The accommodation is simple, yet comfortable. Set on ground and the first floor, each room comes with a balcony or porch for that morning ‘cuppa’, with an amazing view of the mountain ranges. The attached bathrooms have running hot and cold water. Being in a forest reserve, electricity runs on solar power which could be kept off for certain parts of the day. The individual heating system and the hot water bottle in the bed ensure that you are warm during the nights. We do not provide for televisions at the Manor.
