I visited and stayed at Aranya Virasat with my family last week and our experience was absolutely lovely. Aranya Virasat is located in Pangot, and has an extremely picturesque view. The route to the property is beautiful, and if the weather is right, you can get a lovely view of the Himalayas on the way. The property itself is lovely. The cabins are well designed, clean and cozy with all the required amenities. The photographs and paintings in the cabins just add to the beauty of the place.
The staff are extremely polite and courteous, and very helpful! They ensured that our stay was memorable. The food was extremely tasty and service was prompt. The best part of our stay was sitting outdoors in the evening and enjoying the view and peaceful surroundings. The staff was kind enough to organize a bonfire for us as well. My thanks to the entire team at the property for such a lovely experience. I would definitely recommend staying here, for a memorable holiday experience. The views, the staff support and the overall experience is truly unparalleled.

I recently visited Pangot and stayed at Aranya Virasat. It's a beautiful place to stay with wooden cottages and clean washrooms. You will have to walk around 250 meters to get to the parking. Reaching from Nainital to Pangot is tough as the traffic is mostly jammed by local taxis at Snow view points.
Road is just fine and u need to drive cautiously there.

It's open place to relax with family n friends. Food is fine, I would rate 3.5/5
Service given my Mr. Bhuvan is nice and his behaviour is good attending the guests. The staff @ Sanjay attended us well.
Cons - Amenities like if u are expecting any activities, those are missing here like Burma bridge, trekking etc.

Good place to stay for a day n chill out.
Thanks @ Aranya Staff.

Regards,
Himanshu Gupta

Awesome experience at this awesome place and Aranya Virasat made it even better with their hospitality.
At no time we felt we were away from home at this beautiful resort which has 8 wooden cottages and 4 regular rooms. Nestled deep in the forest, right in the middle of nature's lap, this place gives a majestic view of the mountains.
Ideal place for bird-watching the resort itself so don't forget to carry your binoculars.
Now a special mention for the staff. Bhuvan and Vijay (cook) served is the most authentic and delicious kumaoni food. They went out their way to make us feel at home and ensured we were at our comfortable best. They are the best.
Pangoot is not a place for children and holidayers who want to enjoy the city life. It's strictly a place for nature lovers, wildlife lovers and bird watchers.

Location is ideal for nature lovers. Cottages are newly build of only wood. No complaints from the point of view of hospitality. Price is also reasonable. Car parking is also available. Based on all the above factors we decided to select this hotel after intensive search of 2hrs.

Just visited Pangot. Approximately 18 to 20 km from Nainital through a jungle drive.
Pangot is birders' paradise. In this respect staying at Aranya Virasat is really enjoying. Their wooden cottages are really worth staying. You can see many birds are coming in the front lawn. You can enjoy the sight of vast valley from the lawn even from your rooms. We saw the clouds are coming as if to meet us from the valley and went away leaving the crystal clear view of the valley and deep blue sky. Sight of the Sunset is of spell bound beauty. Changing colour of the sky and floating clouds upto deep orange will really astonish you.
You can have trekking trails through the jungle where you can spot many types of birds.
Foods are good. Cheff is very good. Staffs Ricky and Sanjay are very friendly and always ready to help.
Rooms have geysers, room heaters and electric kettles. Wifi is strong. I got both Vodafone and Jio connectivity.
One point is that they don't have a good entrance. Entry is through other property.
