The Kumaon

Almora, India

Perched intimately in the treetops 1600m above sea level, this unique minimalist mountain design was the brain child of Sri Lankan architects, Pradeep Kodikara and Jineshi Samaraweera; an ethos of tropical modernism resonates throughout the buildings, with an abundance of natural light blurring the boundaries between man and nature. Open your eyes to surreal frames of forests, terraces and mountain peaks and embrace the beauty of the locally sourced interior materials that surround you, for a rustic and authentic experience.

Minimalist Splendour in the Himalayas

Formed of 10 luxury chalets, a library, a sun lounge and a gourmet restaurant, The Kumaon offers plenty of immersive spaces to soak up the intimate atmosphere. The Almora city is famed for its esteemed history of attracting artists, pilgrims and scholars, from DH Lawrence to Bob Dylan.

The Location

Situated near the historic city of Almora in India, the area around the Kasar Devi ridge is highly sacred and full of rich heritage, as well as a thriving leopard population. Local village trails allow guests to experience its full potential and why the hoteliers decided to make this the location for The Kumaon.

The Rooms

Graced with a natural theme that flows from room to room, neutral linens, wooden floors, large windows and log burners create a space of calm and tranquility with which to envelop the surroundings. Guests can choose between the Terrace Chalet with a perchsunken outdoor terrace or Garden Chalet with a private garden.

Nibbles & Tipples

Offering a decadent cantilevered restaurant, The Amaranth is located on the top floor of the main building, with soaring views across the mountainous range. Minimalist furniture and delightful local delicacies are the main focus here.

It doesn't matter where you decide to rest at The Kumaon, every space is one in which you can entirely disconnect from the trivialities of everyday life and sip on a beverage of your choice, amid pure serenity and bliss.

God is in the details

From the sky-high restaurant to each perfectly placed suite, every space provides idyllic views of the Kasar Devi ridge and the accompanying mountains. Each glassed space maximises views as far as the eye can see, offering prime photo opportunities.
