Shivani Sharma on behalf of Sharma family June 2018
As promised, on behalf of my family I am sharing our experience of staying at Van Sarai, Jageshwar (June 22-24).
Our family (my in-laws, husband and our daughter) are frequent travelers when it comes to brief vacation/ weekend trips. Staying at Van Sarai has been one of our best short trips in recent times. From the ambiance at the property to hospitality showered by the staff- everything was par excellence.
The minute details that have been taken care of while making the property- rooms, dining area, meditation room is fantabulous. It seems the inspiration is from the Isha Foundation at Coimbatore, which in itself is heavenly. We were at ease and enjoyed the beauty of the place beside nature!
The staff at Van Sarai is extremely humble. They truly understand how to provide comfort to the guests. From the way they interact ( so respectfully) to the individual attention they give to each family, is beyond comparison. The food served by them was fresh and of very good quality… something which travelers usually miss!
I appreciate how we were warned, warned and warned about the steep entrance to the property by Ms. Indira. As she was aware that we were traveling with our parents, she reiterated to me a couple of times and simultaneously made me at ease that there will be staff to help us while entering and leaving the place. She knew the number of steps leading to the dining room further to our room… I truly believe she is doing a great job as I come from a service-oriented background and understand that sharing minute details with the customer beforehand makes a lot of difference! Kindly pass on our compliment to her.
The only thing which we felt was not necessary was paying for the driver. Though it was a nominal amount, drivers’ stay is usually complimentary.
Overall it was a great experience and we all have been referring Van Sarai to our family and friends.
We look forward to visiting other Asian Adventure properties as referred by you.
It was great meeting you and spending quality time with you. Hope you do well in your endeavors.
Good luck to you. Good luck to Asian Adventures!
