"Listen closely to the wind. It is the sound of leaves in the trees, dancing and writing poetry across the sky."

Energy flows seamlessly just like the sweet mountain breeze when you are at a place that feels just right. A place tucked deep in nature, where everything is possible and magic is just around the corner. We have created that space for you.

Nestled on the edge of a funnel-shaped valley in a picturesque hamlet called Nathuakhan and accessible only by a leisurely ten-minute stroll down an idyllic village path shaded by a lush canopy of oak trees, Hushstay x Vayu is a serene 05 Bedroom retreat that offers the rare chance to slow-down and 'breathe'.  

Cradled by the gorgeous hills of Kumaon, at just 45 km from the popular hill town of Nainital, this immersive mountain home built almost entirely of stone and seasoned wood is the perfect place to indulge yourself in a moment of bliss and serenity.

Everything about Hushstay x Vayu has a typical "home in the hills" vibe, making it the ideal destination for those looking for a laid-back vacation in the hills.

The design and architecture of Hushstay x Vayu puts the four natural elements of Earth, Fire, Water and Air at its core. By virtue of being located on the mouth of an expansive valley, it is always breezy and wind-swept. 

The entire retreat sits over almost an acre of land. It takes up less than one-tenth of the space leaving the remaining part of the land to a variety of native trees like oak, rhododendron, deodar, winter-cherry and innumerable fruiting trees such as apple, peach, apricot and walnut. Most of the organic, seasonal vegetables are also grown on the estate.

Mornings usually see a dollop of sunshine here while afternoons could witness a bit of drama as the clouds come shrouding the sun.


The living room, bedrooms & attic have large glass windows which allow for plenty of sunlight to stream in through the day and make for the most astonishing moon-lit nights. The wooden floors, soft rugs and plush beddings, all elevate an easy-going ambience.

A brief stroll down from the cottage is The Deck - the perfect place to find your quietude. At an elevation of almost 20 feet from the ground, this wooden deck at the land’s end literally leaves you with the surreal joy of flying over the valley.

The staff yearns to make the guests feel special. Besides the mouth-watering dishes on the menu, a barbecue soirée can also be setup at an additional cost and on prior intimation.



Partly hidden by trees and the main pathway, a small flight of steps leads to the main building. The house opens into a cosy living room on the ground floor, with a kitchen and dining space. The hosts have added vibrant personal touches and plenty of nooks and corners to unwind with a book or watch birds from the villa’s large glass windows.  

There are five bedrooms here, all of which offer Wi-Fi connectivity. While four rooms have king-size beds and attached bathrooms, one room has a single bed and an attached washroom.


There is one bedroom on the ground floor while there are three bedrooms on the first floor out of which two have an attached balcony where you can sip your morning coffee while taking in the glorious views of the lush valley.
