Tropical Modernism Meets Vernacular Charm in this Striking Himalayan Refuge

Hovering 1,600m above sea level, near the picturesque town of Almora, Uttarakhand, The Kumaon celebrates the mesmerizing landscape and vernacular architecture of the Indian Himalayas.

Clad in granite stones, natural pinewood, and exposed concrete, the hotel’s interiors are a study in tropical modernism, balanced by cozy rustic touches and fabled views of the valley below.

In addition to the 10 soothing suites, you’ll find a library, a sun lounge, and a gourmet restaurant – all crafted from natural, locally sourced materials and graced with rotating glass walls framing spellbinding mountain vistas.
