Vaibhav Kala, Founder of Atali Ganga said,
“To be spoken in the same breath as the world’s 50 top best hotel is humbling and holds team Atali Ganga in pride. Each day from the launch date we have worked relentlessly to better our services. He further added, “Accolade and recognition is only possible if there is backing of an excellent team and guests who have always encouraged us. This announcement is a big victory for us.”´
Our property is an oasis surrounded by Reserved Forest, and it is a thorough privilege to be so close to nature. If you book, come with the purpose of living in the valley of India’s holiest life force, the Ganga, for the call of the barking deer, or the midnight roar of the leopard ; and for that lovely dull ache after a busy day in the great outdoors. 80% of the property is built on a hillside, and you will have to walk a series of steps to reach your cottage. If your group includes infants, small kids and infirm elders, do request for cottages closer to the Cafe´.
