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!



My stay at Van Serai was just magical the place was surrounded by stunning deodar trees, because of its proximity with the Himalayan Shiva Temple I could easily take a walk the temple complex. Inside the vicinity one can see the beautiful sub Himalayan birds making their nest. I would say it a perfect place to stay if a person is looking for tranquility and spirituality.

Van Serai is beautiful gem I discovered at Jageshwar. What striked me the most over here is the Veranda from where I could easily peep into the dense forest.The food was delicious, the taste of which is still affixed into my memories. I will come here once again only this time my friends are going to accompany me.

It was my first visit to Van Serai and I loved it thoroughly from its architecture to its ambiance, during my stay all the staff were very polite and helpful they took special care of my needs and comfort they also suggested me places I should visit and made the arrangements for it. The amazing part about this place is it has its own yoga room and is located just 10 min away from the Himalayan Temple Complex. I would recommend this lodge to all those for are looking for a spiritual trip .

Last summer we planned a trip to Jageshwar and booked two rooms at Van Serai with Asian Adventures. The entire tour of the Kumaon region was spectacular. The highlight of the Van Serai Lodge in Jageshwar was the location, surrounded beautifully by deodar trees and being situated just a short walk away from the ancient Shiva temples. The rooms were spick and span, Delicious Satvik food was served . The Lodge has its own Meditation Room – great enery. I would like to applaud the staff for their kind service, the manager of the lodge took us for a local village tour and birding.  I must say his knowledge for birds was commendable we even spotted a flying squirrel on the trees near the lodge. Our stay was excellent we are planning to come back again very soon.
