Quick Trip to Beat the Heat; Aamod Bhimtal Review


When the scorching heat in the NCR is hard to handle, it's exactly the time when hills and chill breeze of the mountains is fondly remembered and we start planning a vacation to the hills. Is this what your state of mind is right now considering the temp in the capital city is soaring high, then this feature will interest you for sure...

We were recently (last month) invited to Aamod Resort, Bhimtal for an experiential, and no wonder came back fresh and rejuvenated, in an apt way. How about you taking a look at our experience, and then plan your quick trip to this beautiful resort, aka hills which is so close to the NCR...

Aamod Bhimtal is Tucked-in & Gives a Great View of the Hills


Pathway that Goes to our Suite....


Where Comfort & Greens Welcome You!

If you have been to any of the Aamod properties earlier, then you certainly have a fair idea of the lovely concept, which Aamod resorts are based on. The resorts are usually tucked-in, and are a revamped version of the already existing properties in that particular area. And, that's exactly what the Bhimtal resort is all about. We reached this property on a fine afternoon, from Delhi. While the summers had all set-in in the capital city, reaching this hilly destination turned out to be a soothing respite from the rising temps. The moment you enter the resort, you are greeted by some cool greens around, with pines trees posing high midst the modern-day construction. We in no time headed straight to our suite, which was super-comforting and cozy. The picture in your right is just the glimpse of the trail that lead us all the way to our suite...

It was time for lunch now, and we simply couldn't wait to check out the chef's creations for the day and thus, headed straight to the dining area, which turned out to be an impressive size!



The lavish luncheon on Day One...

Bhimtal is a laid-back town, and pretty close to the famous tourist spot Nainital. So, if came as a surprise to find such a great size dining area. The food served was amazingly fresh, and why not, after all, it was prepared post our check-in. It was a perfect Indian cuisine that we enjoyed that afternoon, post a tiring road journey.
Some local Flavours....



When you are at Aamod Bhimtal, it's hard to ignore the food that
they serve. Be it the typical Indian cuisine, or the regional one (see pic in right), the sources are local, and so is the team of chef. That's one of the USPs of Aamod resorts that they make sure to hire local staff, and we did check with two of the women employees who hailed from Haldwani.
The day later was all about relaxation and exploring the property. We simply loved the view that each and every room of the resort offers. Not just rooms, the pool-side was fun, though the dip in the temps didn't allow us to take a splash...

The resort had arranged some fun activities for the next day, the glimpse of which we are sharing right next to this text. That's one of the best things about such travel destinations as the town apart from the historic places, like Bhimtal lake, Nal Damayanti Tal, or a couple of old temples doesn't have much to offer, and that's when you enjoy Aamod all the more. The resort has perfectionists when it comes to activity trainers, be it Rappelling, rope climbing etc. The package comes at a pocket-friendly prce, and you can't afford giving it a miss.

The Spa With a View!!
It's not easy to say goodbye to this amazingly comfortabe resort, especially when you realize that they resort also has this cutesy spa area, and some decent services to offer. While we decided to give it a miss as the food kept us busy throughout, the spa experiential is a must when you are in hills, as the view that you get from your therapy hut is just surreal!!

We may be back to the scorching head of the capital city, but if you are set with your next travel, then make sure to check out this paradise in the hills...
