" If you wish to master the art of doing nothing, this is the place for you" Conde Nast Traveller 2019
Set in the idyllic Himalayan countryside, Santila is an exclusive small homestay for a couple or a family of 4 (or less), who yearn for a vacation in a quiet, homely and joy-filled hillside cottage, tucked away amongst the pine-filled forests of Kasauli. Positioned along a kaccha village road, the cottage is blessed with a natural tranquility that is peaceful and revitalizing.

Le logement
Our home suite is available to only one couple/family of four, at a time. This is so as to ensure an authentic, private and exclusive experience; thereby removing potentially nasty, noisy or inquisitive neighbours from the equation.

Our cottage is a simple home, and 'not a hotel'. Santila is for the wanderers whose souls ache for peace and solitude. It is for those who have lost themselves in the inflexibilities of daily life. Most importantly it is for those who wish to reclaim, reframe and reinvent themselves, amongst the aromatic, cool and pine scented breeze that forever surrounds the cottage. Santila is for those who covet the reinvention and rejuvenation of their body, mind and soul.

Expect a no-fuss service, no polished brass fittings, no Michelin star chefs, and definitely no Jacuzzis’. Ours is an eco-conscious and happy home with a simple yet contemporary Anglo-Himachali design.

Santila - literally translates into 'the saga of being satisfied with what one has'

We are a home in the truest of senses. You will feel the comfort of home, in the care of our family, our consummate cook and our ever-helpful housekeeper.
By personally taking care of each reservation, we ensure that your experience is inimitable, and your stay is spot-on, simple, safe and secluded.

Accès des voyageurs
On the inside (Private Guest Space)
A cheerful living room with a day bed, a curate collection of books and magazines, select board games and satellite television, in case the nights get a little too peaceful for you. The day room also has an attached powder room. The day bed doubles up as an extra bedroom for a fa by night, for a family.

The adjacent kitchenette is equipped with some basics.
The master bedroom includes an ensuite cloakroom and bathroom
The homestay is easily accessible and is located at ground level

On the outside
The entry to the homestay is surrounded by pine trees and the bedroom opens onto a small sun-kissed lawn. The oxygen rich, pine scented fresh air will repair, heal and refresh you. The perfect setting for some morning callisthenics or yoga. Explore the area around on foot; it is peaceful, safe and there’s adventure to be had, around every corner. The spots around the countryside, is an ideal setting for some reading, although the surroundings can be satisfyingly distracting. Enjoy the chilled (figuratively and literally) evenings with your favourite tipple. Don’t be too surprised if the countryside lulls you to sleep.

Kasauli, HP, Inde

Santila is located on a 2-kilometer adventurous rugged village road accessible by a car with good tyres (preferably SUV) in the midst of a pine forest. There are two villages in the vicinity and a natural spring nearby.

Positioned along a village road traversed by vehicles with only ‘good wheels,’ the cottage is blessed with a natural tranquility that is peaceful and revitalizing. We are located satisfyingly away from the main town and bazaar, so that our guests can enjoy a “do nothing and get lost in nature” sort of holiday, in the immersive lower Himalayas.

Once a Colonial Hill town, Kasauli was a quintessential retreat for the British, as well as the prosperous locals, and royal families of British India. Kasauli today is cantonment town, and plays host to travellers (of every disposition, and budget) from India and across the world.

You too can do nothing by just doing nothing at all. It’s best not to plan your days when your here. Let them just flow. Hikes are very much a part of the art of doing nothing, as wandering about connects you to nature and there is something about this that is not only exhilarating but also touches your heart at some level.

Hikes - we have numerous trails to trek around with various levels; some being easy, others difficult. You can embark on full-day hikes or just short walks to vantage points that have brilliant views. A lovely 30 minute climb from Santila takes you to 'Santila's High Point' - a lovely spot in the midst of the countryside with a birds eye view of the setting around and to embrace a glorious sunset. An hour-long hike above Santila brings you to the main town of Kasauli. An hour-long hike all the way down takes you to the village stream.

Lila has been an integral and colourful part of Kasauli for decades. She literally knows everybody around and has taught many of their kids. You can be sure to hear her laugh from miles away. Lila loves to bake cakes, cook and fill you in with all the latest gossip around town. Origins of the entire family is a harmonious mashup of cultures. It was a dream to have a small home away in the countryside and villages, where one could just lose themselves in the old world that actually exists.
