On a chilly morning, I jumped out of my cosy bed to greet the birds that beckoned me with their song. But they were all camouflaged in the dense trees, probably shying away from travellers like me. At Vayu Retreat in Nainital, nature was playing a game of hide and see with me.
Vayu Retreat is a Hidden Gem in Nainital

This nature lover couple found their inner calling in their true 'pahadi' spirit, and decided to curate a cosy retreat for conscious living in the hills. In fact, you will be happy to know that not a single tree was cut while the making of this beautiful estate.

What makes this retreat special
Vayu Retreat in Nainital is ideal for birdwatching or relaxing with a book in one of the many bright corners of the estate. Vayu is designed by keeping the four natural elements of Earth, Fire, Water and Air at its core. Welcoming breezy spaces, spacious bedrooms, dining rooms for long lunches and large windows in the attic make the space faultless on moon lit nights and sunny days.
The villa comes with four bedrooms named after the primary elements of nature.

Connect with nature in paradise
The outdoor deck overlooks the Mukteshwar valley, only about a hundred metres down from the main house. The property does not provide alcohol but you are allowed to carry your own. I would say BYO's are always money savings schemes. Watch the sunset as you sip on your drink enjoying some picnic time with your loved ones.
You can also enjoy a picnic by the Kashiyalekh stream only a kilometre away. Keep a day for some adventures with a day trip to Mukteshwar. You can visit the popular temple by the cliff or opt for zip lining and rappelling. For nature lovers, you wont be short of nature walks and serene sunsets as Vayu lets you enjoy the ever so referring breeze, staying true to it's name.
