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.
Homestays in Almora are known for their beautiful architecture and fully indulgent cuisine and manners that reflect all colors of Kumaon culture and traditions and Sukoon does complete justice to this.
Spread out in 3 acres of land in the Himalayas and surrounded by virgin pine, oak and rhododendron trees with seasonal fruits and vegetables, Hushstay x Sukoon celebrates Kumaon in its truest sense – the spirit, the architecture and the revelry.
The inn breathes tranquillity and offers you the essence of authentic India: her friendliness, hospitality & serenely balanced lifestyle.
At Hushstay x Sukoon, we have refurbished the interiors of an authentic Kumaoni house to match the existing surroundings. The slate roofs are made of locally found stone called "Pataal" and big chunks of stone make up the thick walls of the 02 rooms thus keeping the home warm in winters and cool during summers. The old-style stone and wooden architecture adds more ground to earth ingredients to the beauty of this place. The serene, simple and comforting interiors soak your soul deeper into the silence and solace giving you reasons to forget the stressful life and embrace a new and rejuvenated self.
The bigger suite room is located on the first level of the house and has an ensuite bath and toilet. while the smaller room is a converted goat room, with a low ceiling height, that is usually found on the lower level of a mountain home. The ground floor room while being smaller in size is much cosier and has a private bath/toilet outside of the room. Each room has its own private entrance and both rooms overlook the majestic himalayan peaks such as Nanda Devi and Trishul in the distance.
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 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.”
