Hotel Facilities & Highlights


Cuisine: The village style dining room is decorated with traditional artefacts. Most of the vegetables, lentils, fruit and herbs from the organic garden are used in the recipes. Weather permitting, meals are oftentimes cooked outdoors on wood fired “chulhas” and “angeethis”.


Farm: Set on five acres of terraced land, this organic farm produces fruit and vegetables (tomatoes, potatoes, onions, garlic, peas, beans, cabbage, cauliflower, corn, cucumbers, turmeric, limes, lemons, capsicum, chillies, aubergines, gourds, zucchini, lentils, strawberries, oranges, various citrus, peaches, mangos, lychee, and guava) and herbs including mint, spearmint, coriander, lemongrass, rosemary, marjoram, and chives.



Dhaba: This traditional eatery is situated in the middle of the farm, and the place to start the day with tea brewing over a wood fire. On good weather days, fresh ingredients and herbs are picked from the farm, and used to prepare breakfast and lunch either on the woodfire or solar cooker.


The river: A beautiful glacial stream flows through this property and transforms itself into a brilliant emerald pool with its own waterfall. A few riverside shacks are located along the river’s edge that are ideal for bird watching, reading a book, or simply relaxing and watching the river flow by.


Your Host & The Team


“During a holiday to Ramgarh in 2003, I found a perfect piece of land overlooking snow-covered Himalayan peaks. Together with my wife Ratna, we named it Soulitude to express solitude for the soul. I love to explore new places, and whilst on a trek along the Kalsa River, I came across a farm with an emerald rock pool and waterfall. I wanted to grow my own food and draw natural mineral water from our springs. That is how our second property, Soulitude by the Riverside, was created. I believe that you don’t own property... the property owns you.”



“Surrounded by pristine nature in a remote location, this 7-room rustic style property requires guests to be fit as it is a 1.2km trek from the road, making it unsuitable for people with accessibility issues or small children.”

Kim, the discoverer.
