It has multi-dimensional aspects of spirituality, wildlife, culture, and wellness.

Attention to every detail makes Van Serai an ecolodge that fits into the local surroundings seamlessly and provides utmost quality and comfort to our guests. We, at Van Serai, leave no stone unturned to make sure our guests have the most comfortable and enriching stay with us. 

A grueling six years in the making, Van Serai has truly been a labour of love. The architectural inspiration of Van Serai comes from the traditional Kumaoni style of construction. All the rooms and common areas have been designed keeping in tune with the local architectural feel. Big verandas in the front and back have been specially created to let the guests enjoy the greenery and make the most of the warm sunshine bathing the lodge.
