Enjoy Your Stay in Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary

The Tree of Life Grand Oak Manor is nestled in the Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary in the Kumaon hills (Uttarakhand), 25 kms from Almora. It was in 1856 that the then British Commissioner of Kumaon, General Sir Henry Ramsay, cousin to Lord Dalhousie, the Viceroy of India, acquired this piece of land and built his private home.In 1931, the property was purchased by Rai Bahadur Harkishan Lal Sah Gangola and has stayed in the family since.

Today, we have reopened the doors of this exclusive hotel for guests to offer them a taste of our old world charm and hospitality.

“A delightful mountain-top retreat deep in a forest reserve, with nothing but solitude for miles around. This is a 150-year-old mansion, but quite well-maintained. The chef is superlative, the food excellent, the service very old-world, complete with monogrammed cutlery and period furnishings, retaining the British colonial flavour of the establishment.”
