The writer visited this gem in the first week of July with her gang and here are the highlights of the short-but-memorable trip:
Food: Delicious and sumptuous. All the meals and snacks are freshly made with organic ingredients, sourced from their own farm, which you can also visit if you make a request in advance. We had their cheese platter and vegetable for snacks, baked vegetables and kadaknath chicken (prepared on special request) for dinner and everything tasted heavenly. But what took the cake for me was their breakfast. Seasonal fruits and hot aaloo paranthas. What a soul-satisfying combo!
Decor: Simple and elegant. Everything from the hand-picked mirrors to paintings to the wooden bookshelf add a very rustic yet modern vibe to the place. Be it the little Buddha statues or hanging dreamcatchers, they all give a calm and spiritual feel, and why not? House of Kapaali also hosts plenty of yoga and meditation retreats for its guests. They have a beautiful terrace too where you can bask in the winter sun and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea.

The host: House of Kapaali is run by Mansi Mahajan, a transformation coach, internationally celebrated yoga and meditation teacher, an impassioned entrepreneur for over a decade, but most important, a warm and welcoming host. She was there to receive me and my friends personally with refreshing lemonades and beautiful cupcakes knowing that it was my birthday. She even had a special present for us from their in-house brand ‘Manaste’.
final word: Just go guys! Don’t give it another thought. Pick your gang or fam or bae, pack your bags and head to this lovely place for a wonderful little stay. You can thank me later!
