Important Information

  • Soulitude by the Riverside’s remote location ensures that the beauty of Nature is preserved in its wild glory, unspoiled by man. However, it is not suitable for people with accessibility issues or small children that are unable to comfortably undertake a 1.0 km (30 minute) trek to reach the property from the road-head. During rains, the alternate trek through the pine forests will entail a steep uphill climb for 30-45 minutes on the return journey.
  • Please ensure prior to arrival that you have made arrangements with Soulitude to meet you at agreed designated points (below). You will not be able to reach the location without an escort. You are requested to again fine-tune your arrival time once you reach Kathgodam.
  • Parking: Cars may be parked in the nearby village of Chanfi, in the compound of a local resident. The pickup/drop charges are to be paid by the guest directly to the local resident.
  • Our regular check-in time is 2 pm and check-out is 10 am. However, due to remote location of the property and forest area around it NO check-in and check-out is allowed after dark. We would be happy to adjust to suit your travel timings depending on our occupancy. An early check in should be possible unless the room was occupied the previous night, in which case you are welcome to enjoy the common spaces and their facilities. If you require an early check-in or a late check out, we can offer an option @ 50% of room tariff (subject to availability).
  • There are no T.V.’s in the rooms, save one in the Lounge. We have provided for some in-house entertainment for children, including books, movies and games. Please note that the forest department does not permit playing loud music in this area. The management decision in this matter shall be final.
  • For your convenience, Tea and coffee making facilities are available in each room. Tea and coffee ordered from the kitchen are charged as per the À la carte menu.
  • In addition to the main meals we have provided for a small À la carte menu with an interesting selection of snacks for those in between moments. Though the menu has been planned keeping the needs and preferences of children in mind, please feel free to walk in and request our cook to rustle up just the kind of sandwich or noodles that your kids like. A copy of the menu is available in every room.
  • All meals are served only in the dining room, during the following timings which are strictly adhered to
    : Breakfast – 8am to 10:30 am Lunch 1pm – 3pm Dinner 8pm – 10 pm
  • Though the Menus offered for the meals are fixed, we take extra care in planning them so that the guests are treated to a variety of tastes and cuisines.
