Junoon in the Hills – A traveler’s paradise in the mountains!
Weekend and getaways go hand-in-hand. When we are not planning for any family gatherings at home for a weekend, family outings are the best way to take a break. And when it comes to taking a break from the inhumane heat of Delhi, the mountains in Uttarakhand are your first calling. During our trip to Almora and Ranikhet in Uttarakhand, we stayed at Aamod Resorts, a beautiful boutique villa property known as Junoon in the Hills.
This property is more of a luxurious villa than a hotel which has 5 rooms, 1 dining hall attached to a kitchen, a common area and a lounge. The best part about Junoon in the Hills is the peace and tranquility it offers in abundance due to its surroundings. The villa is located around 20kms before the city of Ranikhet and is most suitable for quiet weekend getaways from Delhi. Here’s a complete property review of Junoon in the Hills – A traveler’s paradise in the mountains!

There is a lot of storage space in the changing room for your luggage and other belongings. The washrooms were very neat and clean and had all the toiletries needed to compliment your stay.
Junoon in the Hills is a home away from home. The property has local staff who are specialist in preparing local dishes. The food that you get here is more like a home cooked food, fresh, tasty and healthy.
