Waking up to the breathtaking view of mountains and forest, sound of river rapids, the chirping of birds and luxurious accommodation – a stay at Tarangi Resort in Jim Corbett, Ramnagar makes a perfect weekend getaway !
It’s not that before this time we haven’t been to a place nestled in the midst of the mountains and forest but after reaching here we felt we reached more closer to the nature. The series of mountains and the sound of river rapids was declaring loudly about the gracefulness of the nature. It’s just rained when we reached and the weather was very pleasant. I have been to Jim Corbett few years back with my college friends but this time it was his birthday and we wanted to celebrate it at a place far way from the city chaos where we could sit, relax and rejoice moments together.
Tarangi resort is located right in the arms of Jim Corbett National Park and the river Kaushiki/ Kosi flows alongside the resort and abundant wildlife around made our dream of a perfect holiday resort come true. The resort offers 44 mod air conditioned rooms, including river valley rooms, pool side villas and a bridal villa.
We opted for River valley room and the view from the room was actually mesmerizing.The room was spacious and well equipped with comfortable double beds, luxurious toiletries, wifi, digital lockers, flat TV screen, cupboards, tea-maker, an ironing board and other basic daily use items. The interior of room was modern and minimal, the color was in neutral tone and had a work desk too, two royal chairs with table and a sofa cum bed. There were gorgeous cage lights beside both sides of our bed and a beautiful lamp was placed between the two chairs. The room had attached balcony with sitting arrangements.
The resort has its own in-house restaurant which offers an expansive multi-cuisine buffet breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks.The eco friendly environment and usage of fresh vegetables make the food sumptuous. If you need anything else, apart from the buffet, it can be served on a special request. Also, if you are a person who doesn’t like to involve yourself in buffet and want to relish your privacy, the food can be served in your room as well.
SWIMMING POOL, SPA & OTHER AREAS
The property has a beautiful swimming pool in between, surrounded by lush green flora where you can swim, relax and have breakfast by the pool. Also, they do have many activities and kids zone where you and your kids can play and enjoy a lot! There is also a gym, spa and small library at reception area.
We took train (Ranikhet Express) from Delhi and reached Ramnagar at 4:30 am in the morning. Tarangi resort is around 8 kms away from the railway station, we hired a cab and reached the resort. When we reached we welcomed by a staff with a pleasing smile and he took us to our room. As we entered the resort, we were amazed by beauty of the resort and lush greenery all around. The short jaunt from reception to our room was marvelous. The room was spacious, neat & clean and had big glass window, the view of mountain, river and forest from the room and the balcony was gorgeous. We rested for few hours, got fresh and went for buffet breakfast. The breakfast was grand and mouth watering. It was raining on the first day and it was his birthday too, we decided to stay at our room, sit in the balcony and enjoy the moment. When the rain stopped, we strolled around this spectacular 15 acre property, met General manager, Manager and few staffs, had lunch and got some stunning photos clicked. There is a place in this resort from where you can get down near the river, so in the evening we decided to chill and relax by the riverside. We enjoyed each other’s company, the sound of water and cool breeze. We came back, decided to have dinner in the room only and guess what came along with the dinner….. Mr. D Thyagin Menon, General Manager of Tarangi resort sent a surprise cake for him. It was a real surprise for him and he cut the cake again. Oh, I forgot to tell you, we celebrated his birthday at midnight in the train too.. 😉
We woke up late as we were in no hurry, got fresh, sipped a cup of coffee gazing at the beautiful view. It was again raining in the morning so we ordered the breakfast in our room only. We sat in the balcony, had our breakfast with the sound of rain and fresh cool breeze. Those moments are inexpressible. When it stopped raining, we went to the swimming pool, had bath and drinks. After that we again went down near river, played and enjoyed there for few hours, sorry… we both are water babies, we can spend hours sitting and playing by the riverside. We came back to the room, had lunch, rested for few hours and then we went for an evening walk and again guess what happened when we returned….. a surprise candle light dinner was waiting for us. We truly felt as if we were in a wonderland which is full of surprises. We had candle light dinner by the river and mountain, it was pitch dark by that time, we could see each other only in that light and hear the sound of river rapids and wind. The dinner was so romantic, just like a perfect movie scene.
Our experience at Tarangi resort was extremely wonderful, it’s like the perfect weekend holiday dream came true. The time we spent there will cherish forever and will never ever forget those surprises. The courteous staffs with happy face and warm hospitality made our stay amazing. We really thanks them a lot for making our stay so comfortable and unforgettable. Many thanks to Mr. Menon, Mr. Qamar, Mr. Ghosh and all humble staffs for giving us such beautiful moments which we will remember forever.
