About Pool Retreat Ranikhet
Ranikhet meaning “Queen’s Meadow” is a jewel in the Kumaon Himalayas of Uttarakhand. Located at a comfortable altitude of 1700m, this was one of the popular summer retreats of the British Raj to escape from the scorching Indian summer. Home to the Kumaon Regiment of the Indian Army, this idyllic hill station is ideal for a relaxing holiday with ample opportunities for long walks, cycling, staring at the Himalayan peaks, soaking in the sun and much more. There is many a sight to drive to and for the more activity-inclined there are a number of soft adventure activities to see you through the day.
The Pool Retreat is a cosy hotel located in Majkhali, 10 kms from the Mall Road of Ranikhet. It offers a beautiful view of the surrounding fields and small villages in the distance. The hotel offers rooms with all the basic amenities and is an ideal getaway for guests looking to enjoy the natural beauty of Ranikhet.
Along with the natural beauty this place also happens to be the centre for travelers seeking to indulge in wildlife safaris and not just in the national park but a real venture in the deep and dense forests of Kumaon, giving you a thrilling sensation- listening to the sounds of wild animals. And only if that was enough, Pool Retreat gives you the experience of living in the valley under the majestic embrace of the Himalayas, the steep flowing rivers, the green lush step-fields and the Kumaoni hamlets with slate roof tiles along the curvy -winding roads. This magnificent view of the region from the bottom of the valley to the top of the grand mountain peaks is nothing short of an unforgettable time in a dreamland.
