"In a simple and a peaceful cottage with a beautiful view, you will not be dreaming about the palaces or the heaven, because you already have a perfect thing!"
Winding roads lead you to a beautiful little hamlet called Jalna: A little village, about 30 km from the popular hill town of Almora.
Tucked away in a peaceful corner of Jalna, is this peaceful and cosy 02 bedroom cottage called Hushstay x Raahat located on the same premises as Hushstay x Sukoon Homestay.
Raahat, as the name suggests, is an escape from the mundane: A place where you can let go of all your worries and just be.
At Raahat you are welcomed by lush greenery, the melodious chirping of a variety of birds and the sight of snow-covered peaks in the distance. As the sun goes down, the skies turn to shades of red, orange and violet and are later covered with a million stars.
Feast on home-made Kumaoni meals prepared by our in-house cook, take a walk to the nearby village, hike up to the hilltop to watch the sunset or just laze around and let our staff cater to all your needs with the utmost attention.
Our recommendation: Hushstay x Raahat (02 rooms) is recommended for groups of 04 -06 guests. If you are a smaller group, you should opt for Hushstay x Sukoon which is a more exclusive space for smaller groups or couples. Alternatively, if you are a group of 06 - 12 guests, you may book both units: Hushstay x Sukoon and Hushstay x Raahat.
A little extra for Hushstays Guests
Sunset Village Hike
Let our caretaker guide you through the nooks and corners of the surrounding villages. Watch the sunset from a hill top, explore the local culture and sip on a hot cup of tea at a locals place.
Hushstay x Raahat is a unique stone-clad cottage perched at 5500 ft. The place is surrounded by virgin pine, oak and rhododendron trees and overlooks the majestic Himalayan peaks such as Trishul and Nanda Devi.
From the cosy rooms with their own indoor fireplace to the outdoor dining area with views to admire, every nook and corner of Hushstay x Raahat spells peace and tranquillity.
As you walk down a little further from the cottage, you will also find Hushstay x Sukoon Homestay which you can book alongside Hushstay x Raahat if you are a bigger group. Have a look at it here.
Hushstay x Raahat consists of 02 beautifully decorated and spacious rooms with large windows overlooking serene surroundings.
Inside the rooms, you will find elements of the local kumaoni culture: The thick walls have been finished with a mix of mud and locally found stone, the lamps, as well as other decors, have been made by the locals of the surrounding villages and the roof has a wooden cladding to give the rooms a warm feeling.
Comfortable beddings coupled with an indoor fireplace provide the warmth and comfort needed on a cold winter evening and the large windows allow for an inflow of fresh mountain air on a summer day. On a clear weather day, you are able to spot snow-covered Himalayan peaks from the comfort of your bed.
Step outside the room and you will find the same old-world charm reflected in the private sit-out space which is just perfect for that evening tea or a lazy afternoon.
When you book with us, you will have the entire place to yourself. Our cook / caretaker will leave no stone unturned to make sure you have a great time.

“We had a great time at Sukoon! The rooms are comfortable, and the caretakers were very helpful! They ensured that our stay was very enjoyable. The place is located in a small village- Jalna, and away from the hustle and bustle. Our group of friends enjoyed the beautiful views from the listing. Great place to chill!”

“We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Sukoon and would love to come back soon. It is one of those places that you see only in movies but gets to experience very rarely. We were fortunate enough to see/experience/stay at Sukoon. Amazing hand cooked food from freshly picked vegetables, tremendous support from the staff, amazing hospitality, on-point communication and mind blowing location. All of it together made our trip a memorable one. ”

“We were nine members traveling for leisure. We spoke with the owner and book the place for us.
Sukoon Home Stay is located off the road. Initially, we were confused if we had made a good selection. After we reached Sukoon Home Stay, we were greeted by the caretaker of the property and were escorted to our rooms. The rooms were very nicely prepared for our arrival. The bathrooms were clean and hot water was available. The view from the rooms was awesome. The property is surrounded by fruit trees and we all enjoyed trekking down the hills.”
