The quintessential jungle-book like setting and all the five-star luxuries you could hope for—these are just a few of the things you get when you come to Paatlidun Safari Lodge on the outskirts of Jim Corbett National Park. Paatlidun is located in Bhakrakot, at the foothills of the Himalayas, enveloped by the scenic views of the Shivalik ranges. At Paatlidun, every day would be an experience on its own- be it the early chirruping of birds that seem obsolete in the humdrum of city life or napping on the deck getting sun-kissed.
This boutique resort is inspired from the local language of Lahul. La signifies that which is above, Ri, the mountains, and Sa means the earth. And everything at LaRiSa, high in the mountains, feels like it’s come from the earth, just like its name. Orchards stretch out in seemingly endless waves of apple trees. Cottages of stone and wood blend seamlessly into the landscape. And a bounty of flowers, vegetables, beans and herbs grow in the garden beyond. The basil-scented air tempts everyone, and you find yourself picking vegetables for your next meal even if you’ve just finished one.
Set in a tropical garden, barely 200 metres off the beach, the villas are designed as inclusive, barefoot retreats, each with their own infinity pool looking out to the sea. The houses sit in complete harmony with the local landscape and cultural milieu, to provide the discerning traveller with a romantic retreat—a place of privacy that nurtures a sense of balance, much needed in the hectic lives of today.
So, what’s your pick this season?
