Resorts in Naukuchiatal

Frankly, Naukuchiatal came on the tourist map as late as 1993 when Mr. Mahendra Verma thought of coverting some of his lake side land into a resort. When The Lake Resort was opened to public in 1995 it was the only resort in Naukuchiatal with only 12 rooms. Infact the road leading to The Lake Resort or Naukuchiatal at that time was not cemented. Slowly, all the efforts paif off and people started getting to know about The Lake Resort and Naukuchiatal.

Today, there still arent too many resots in Naukuchiatal but better than the situation in 1995. The roads are perfect and there are two more resorts apart from The Lake Resort:

1. KMVN Parichay Resort: Parichay Resort is situated by the lake and neighbors The Lake Resort. The resort is run by Kumaon Mandal Vikas Nigam Ltd., Uttarakhand Govt. undertaking. The rooms are okay (first floor rooms are fine) but the service standards can disappoint you like any other State Tourism Guest House.

2. Vasudha Resort: This is a small guest house and does not qualify to be called a resort. Good for backpackers (if it is...I doubt), the rooms arent cheap either.

3. Deja Vu: Deja Vu is a small house in the hills and offers a good lake view. You can take up the entire house which has 2 Bedrooms and a drawing cum lounge. Suits small families and a good option for those who prefer a long stay.

We have heard that some more resorts are coming up in Naukuchiatal but as of now The Lake Resort is arguably the best in terms of Lodging, food, service, etc. With excellent lake view and all modern amenities, this is a perfect abode by the lake.
