There are a lot of hotels which are very good but very few which end up leaving a lasting impression after we’ve left. Soulitude was one of the latter.

Five entrepreneurs redefining the boutique hotel landscape

Manish Chandra is a small-time hotelier. He runs two hotels with 17 rooms. He addresses all the pre-booking calls himself — at times up to 50 calls a day.

Anniversary special – Part 2 (Soulitude by the Riverside)

‘Cookin in pajamas’ After about one and half hour of trek, we decided to walk downhill crossing some local homes and smiling women doing their daily chores.
