Dehradun’s Garden Villa Dehradun, Uttarakhand
A sprawling colonial villa with terraced gardens, state of the art bedrooms and living areas and a delightful swimming pool
Up in the hills of Dehradun is a slice of paradise in the form of a beautiful colonial villa that offers spectacular views of the hills and valleys beyond
How about a hot cup of tea at the verandah?
The verandahs are gorgeous extensions of the living areas and perfect for hours of chatter
The main living area of the villa, furnished beautifully with period furniture and decorated artistically with framed photographs and artefacts, reeks of elegance, understated grandeur and a space that’s utterly warm
Pick a book that piques your curiosity and make yourself comfortable by the fireplace - the best way to really relax and unwind.
The mezzanine level has been converted into the owners’ library - a space where their much loved collection of books and DVDs line the walls
Spend hours relaxing in the swimming pool/ jacuzzi or rejuvenate with a therapeutic massage.
Be welcomed by flowers in full bloom that colour up the much loved terraced gardens
The master suite comes with a luxurious bathroom with overhanging lamps in the dressing area and a fabulous glass-marble sunken bathtub
It also has its own state of the art living area

The beautifully done up semi open verandah where one can spend hours relaxing and soaking in the beauty of the surroundings
The open verandah is just what the doctor would have prescribed for those low on Vitamin D! A great place to enjoy an al fresco breakfast too!
The food is scrumptious and the presentation is visually immensely appeasing, making dining here truly an all sensory experience!
Watch the clouds pass by as you stroll bare feet on the perfectly manicured lawns of the villa
When rivers make their way through mountains
The sal tree forest makes for a great walk in the woods and provides an excellent opportunity for birdwatching
In the evening, relish a serving of ‘bhuna ghosht’ or the local 'shikaar’ prepared to perfection by the local cooks who even find mention in the chapters of travel guides!
