" If you wish to master the art of doing nothing, this is the place for you" Conde Nast Traveller 2019
Set in the idyllic Himalayan countryside, Santila is an exclusive small homestay for a couple or a family of 4 (or less), who yearn for a vacation in a quiet, homely and joy-filled hillside cottage, tucked away amongst the pine-filled forests of Kasauli. Positioned along a kaccha village road, the cottage is blessed with a natural tranquility that is peaceful and revitalizing.

Indawo
Our home suite is available to only one couple/family of four, at a time. This is so as to ensure an authentic, private and exclusive experience; thereby removing potentially nasty, noisy or inquisitive neighbours from the equation.

Our cottage is a simple home, and 'not a hotel'. Santila is for the wanderers whose souls ache for peace and solitude. It is for those who have lost themselves in the inflexibilities of daily life. Most importantly it is for those who wish to reclaim, reframe and reinvent themselves, amongst the aromatic, cool and pine scented breeze that forever surrounds the cottage. Santila is for those who covet the reinvention and rejuvenation of their body, mind and soul.

Expect a no-fuss service, no polished brass fittings, no Michelin star chefs, and definitely no Jacuzzis’. Ours is an eco-conscious and happy home with a simple yet contemporary Anglo-Himachali design.

Santila - literally translates into 'the saga of being satisfied with what one has'

We are a home in the truest of senses. You will feel the comfort of home, in the care of our family, our consummate cook and our ever-helpful housekeeper.
By personally taking care of each reservation, we ensure that your experience is inimitable, and your stay is spot-on, simple, safe and secluded.

We only accept bookings of couples, families or friends where a lady must be a part of the guests travelling.

Ukungena kondwendwe
On the inside (Private Guest Space)
A cheerful living room with a day bed, a curate collection of books and magazines, select board games and satellite television, in case the nights get a little too peaceful for you. The day room also has an attached powder room. The day bed doubles up as an extra bedroom for a fa by night, for a family.

The adjacent kitchenette is equipped with some basics.
The master bedroom includes an ensuite cloakroom and bathroom
The homestay is easily accessible and is located at ground level

On the outside
The entry to the homestay is surrounded by pine trees and the bedroom opens onto a small sun-kissed lawn. The oxygen rich, pine scented fresh air will repair, heal and refresh you. The perfect setting for some morning callisthenics or yoga. Explore the area around on foot; it is peaceful, safe and there’s adventure to be had, around every corner. The spots around the countryside, is an ideal setting for some reading, although the surroundings can be satisfyingly distracting. Enjoy the chilled (figuratively and literally) evenings with your favourite tipple. Don’t be too surprised if the countryside lulls you to sleep.

Ezinye izinto ekufuneka uziqaphele
You may order your groceries through our local grocer Rocky. He will organize for them to be delivered at the doorstep and you may pay Rocky, directly as per MRP bills. Not only are they fresh but also mostly organic. Guests love the fresh milk and pure ghee that the farmers around get straight from their farm.
Kindly keep some cash during your stay as most villagers do not have Paytm or Card
machines.
Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner will be cooked by Renu (Santila's private house cook) in your kitchen. Renu is also a hill woman and is skilled in cooking good simple fresh home food. Food and drink is important in the hills as you can have the freshest food cooked in your kitchen while you sit back and relax. You may discuss your preferences with her on arrival. In case you fancy to cook, then Renu can help doing the pre-prep, chopping and washing up.
Renu is not available post 2130 hours at night.
Drinks – Please carry some Wine and Spirits of your choice as Kasauli has a limited selection. You can also pick up some rum, beer and Himachali wine at Garkhal Market (20 minutes away).
The kitchenette can be stocked up on 48 hours advance notice (costs as per bills and transport fee.


We have limited power backup upto a few hours. Generally, hill stations do not have power failures and even if there is no electricity, you won’t miss it.

Indawo

Kasauli, HP, India

Santila is located on a 2-kilometer adventurous rugged village road accessible by a car with good tyres (preferably SUV) in the midst of a pine forest. There are two villages in the vicinity and a natural spring nearby.

Positioned along a village road traversed by vehicles with only ‘good wheels,’ the cottage is blessed with a natural tranquility that is peaceful and revitalizing. We are located satisfyingly away from the main town and bazaar, so that our guests can enjoy a “do nothing and get lost in nature” sort of holiday, in the immersive lower Himalayas.

It’s best not to plan your days when your here. Let them just flow. Hikes are very much a part of Santila as wandering about connects you to nature and there is something about this, that is not only exhilarating but also touches your heart at some level. On arrival, you can seek the advise of Lila to plan your days ahead.

Hikes & Picnics – We have numerous trails to trek around with various levels; some being easy, others difficult.
You can embark on long hikes or just short walks to vantage points that have brilliant views. A lovely 30 minute climb from Santila takes you to 'Santila's High Point' - a lovely spot in the midst of the countryside with a birds eye view of the setting around. An hour-long hike
above Santila brings you to the main town of Kasauli. An hour-long hike all the way down takes you through lovely farmland and the village stream. Its good to pack some snacks and
refreshments for the journey. Every walk and picnic in the hills, is an everlasting memory.
If you do feel like going for a full-day guided farm tour with organic lunch at the farm (2 hour hike each way), that can also be organised on special request. (Minimum 02 guests, minimum charge for lunch/walk applicable)
Flora and Fauna - There is a wide variety of Himalayan bird species including the jungle fowl, the western spotted dove, blue whistling thrush, chesnut bellied nuthatch, red billed blue magpie and others. Pretty often one can hear the barking deer in the pine forest above and occasional talk from the villagers of the elusive Indian Leopard.

Lila loves to bake cakes, cook and fill you in with all the latest gossip around town. Origins of the entire family is a harmonious mashup of cultures. It was a dream to have a small home away in the countryside and villages, where one could just lose themselves in the old world that actually exists.
