Zircon Valley (Deluxe Rooms)

locationNainital, Uttarakand

About the Home

  • A set of twin private villas with a swimming pool in Nainital, SaffronStays Zircon Valley is a 100-year-old home in the hills. The 12 bedrooms here, all which can be booked individually, are distinct, beautifully crafted and elegantly furnished.
  • Located in Gethia, one of the most beautiful unexplored places in Uttarakhand, the home sits by the edge of a cliff. Twenty minutes from Mall Road, it overlooks Kumaon’s verdant valley. 
  • While one of the bungalows has 8 bedrooms and common areas including the dining area, and a bar set-up, the other one has 4 bedrooms and a common sitting area. There are 6 deluxe rooms and 6 standard rooms, all with an ensuite bathroom. While the deluxe rooms have private sitouts, lofts and are perfect for family getaways near Delhi, the standard rooms are ideal for friends and couples looking for a place to stay in Uttarakhand.
  • Enjoy a plethora of views from the rooms. While some of them offer soothing views of the valley, some have a small lawn right outside, Deodhar Trees sprawling right below the room or a lavish show of sunshine.
  • One of the best places to stay in Nainital, it is ideal for a couples getaway in North India, as well as an intimate celebration near Delhi
  • Owing to its legacy, the home is part of several legendary narratives. It is said that in 1890, the wife of a British officer fell in love with Gethia and chose to build her house here. After her, the home was handed over to her descendants. It is said that Gandhiji had tea here in 1936 when he was on his way to visit Kamala Nehru at the Bhowali Sanatorium. Hunter-conservationist Jim Corbett was also friends with the lady of the house and often visited this space. Be part of the glorious history. 
  • Relish hot, home-cooked meals prepared using fresh ingredients in the cosy Dining Room with a huge community table and a fireplace.
  • For leisure, there’s a dedicated reading room, a separate space for games like pool and ping pong, a pool deck when you plan on doing nothing and a swimming pool between the two bungalows.
