What our guests wrote about us …

While The Satvik Resort’s  (colloq Satvik Sadan)  ownership and management has remained the same, The Satvik Resort has been offering various plans since its inception in 2004′. Thus the appreciation shown below reflects the sentiments of the guests availing the plan prevalent at that time and not necessarily those currently on offer. However their views do show that irrespective of the plan on offer, the high satisfaction of our guests by their stay with us.

Deborah Baker – Austin Texas USA  Frequent guest – My most recent stay at The Satvik Resort was every bit as relaxing and enchanting as I had hoped. I am a repeat customer for a reason. I find the accommodations to be quite pleasing and welcoming. I especially enjoy the indoor – outdoor living feel that you get with the expansive windows. And each room has more than generous terrace space that provides expansive and beautiful views of the foothills of the Himalayas. The morning sunrise is inspiring and the night skies can be breathtaking.

The terraces of The Satvik Resort have one of the best seats on the planet for watching the heavens. The way the resort is designed – it feels like you are living outdoors among the mountains in day and stars at night.

I found the peacefulness and privacy perfect for relaxation and contemplation.

Also notable is the food and  the overall accommodating atmosphere. The owner Pulak Shukla and his wife, Samrita were very welcoming and handled things like arranging for taxi from Delhi, and special dietary requests with generosity and grace.  They are also quite knowledgable regarding the surrounding area and are more than willing to provide information to help their guests.

I am especially impressed with the food served at the Satvik resort, as it is very tasty and healthy. The variety is quite nice and I am particularly impressed with the freshness. I always feel healthier leaving than arriving.

I have to mention the staff and how appreciative I am of their friendly and accommodating nature. I found then attentive and willing to please.

I would not hesitate to stay here again, should the opportunity arise and heartily recommend to anyone looking for a delightful experience.

Many thanks and hope to see you all again soon.

Stayed at Satvik Sadan, resort in Bhimtal, Nainital. May 27th to 30th 2014.
The stay at Satvik Sadan was exemplary. We enjoyed each moment of our stay here. The room décor, the hygiene and especially the ‘aangan’ (balcony) in front of rooms, are really good.
Food at Manipur (the restaurant at Satvik Sadan) is awesome. You can really feel the love and affection with which it has been prepared.
The housekeeping staff and all other staff are very generous, humble and caring.
The shiv-ling (in an area of the resort) is mesmerizing & so is the picturesque beauty of hills from the terrace.
Thanks for the wonderful say & memories

This place is to me a portal for humanity. I came here with my partner to reconnect and deepen our yoga-asana practice and knowledge.
I am deeply grateful for what happened in these 6 weeks. I feel I grounded myself, coming back to reality. At all times I felt looked after and safe. As a couple it was a great experience, we shared the learning of a language/code together.

The food was incredibly amazing, the room beautiful and harmonic, the staff polite and friendly,  The place is easy to access, we took a train from Delhi and we had a taxi (arranged by the Satvik) waiting for us at the train station. But you can also get a taxi from the airport.
Words really don’t make up for it, but they give a hint. In few words> my heart opened with this experience.
I am happy to be contacted by anyone wanting to come to the Satvik,Sadan just ask Shukl’acharya and Samrita for my email.

Satvik Sadan is a resort of rather surprising comfort.
The place has been built with a lot of love and detail to support the well being point of focus.
Rooms are equipped with everything you need and well designed to create a warm atmosphere. There is house keeping which allows you to really focus on what you came for without getting distracted.

We spent only three days in this gorgeous place.

The food was absolutely delicious, naturally prepared without much oil or spices,. We enjoyed every little bit of it. We learnt a lot about Ayurvedic lifestyle from Samrita & Shukl’acharya, the founders of Satvik Sadan. Both took very good care of us and we felt like at home.

I recommend this place, Satvik Sadan, to everyone who wants to find their inner peace and experience a beautiful part of India.

Nino Margvelashvili Bates, a journalist by profession, is widely travelled and from Calhoun, Georgia USA.
“India is a fascinating country, but a first time visitor can be discouraged and frustrated by the prevailing chaos on the roads and markets. But the view of the magnificient Taj Mahal and experience of living at The Satvik Resort, Bhimtal, Himalayas will let those first impressions fade away.
If Taj is a must see, so is the experience at Satvik Sadan for every visitor to India..
The Retreat is clean and has an unusual construction, thanks to one of the many talents of its founder , Shukl’acharya (Shri Pulak Ranjan Shukla.)
The staff is amazingly friendly and makes you feel right at home.
For my future trips to India, Taj and  The Satvik Resort would be the only two spots on my travelling list.”

“My wife and I stayed for one week plus, and I can truly say that the Satvik experience is truly unique. It is a combination of 3 separate experiences but interlinked experiences, and it is their harmony and inter flow that make the total experience special. These 3 elements are the food, the wellness/healthcare and the overall ambience. …..

We found the food excellent, tasty and nutritious, and the yoga regime, was refreshing and rejuvenating.

……We would most heartily recommend a week (or more) here. You won`t regret it, infact it would be a turning point for your well being”.
