True to its name, that is, the Place of Love, Te Aroha is a truly romantic getaway and a perfect choice for the romantics seeking to immortalize the special moments of togetherness. Nestled on a mountain top amidst the scenic surroundings of Dhanachuli, an enchanting village in Kumaon region of Uttrakhand, Te Aroha is a boutique luxury property. Formerly a colonial-style summer house, the hotel is a harmonious blend of traditional architecture and contemporary comforts. While reconstructing the property, the original structure of the summer house has been successfully preserved to retain its original charm.  Huge decks and terraces, antique furniture, massive glass windows with breathtaking views of the landscape and the high ceiling lobby replete with carefully selected furniture can transport you through time to the bygone elegance of the colonial era. Personalized services, presented in an atmosphere of understated elegance, are sure to leave guests with wonderful memories.

Located on different levels, allocated between the two wings of the hotel and furbished thematically, all guest rooms at Te Aroha are different in their aspect and ambience. The 4 spacious suites and 6 luxury rooms offer spellbinding views of Dhanachuli’s landscape or the snow peaked mountains. The rooms carry interesting names. There is hot running water through the year in the modern bathrooms with luxury fittings. Rooms do not have television.

The stylish and enticing cottage is a recipe for romance.  Best described as an elegant crown that ornaments the Place of Love, The Long House is a lover’s delight. Composed no less than a romantic poem, an abode suited for lovers, the cottage is sure to have a seductive effect on its occupants. Comprising of a living room with a fire place, a cozy bedroom with an antique poster bed, a spacious dressing area and an elaborate bathroom, the cottage is a dream destination for honeymooners.
