You’d never expect to find this eco-conscious, 10-suite design haven in Uttarakhand’s bohemian Kasar Devi village, high above the historical city of Almora. Inspired by the Kumaon region’s traditional architecture and built from bamboo, copper, pine and stone, the paired-up minimal-chic suites are the work of Sri Lankan studio Zowa Architects. Himalayan views flow through floor-to-ceiling windows, and bedding includes blankets crafted by Almora artisans. Top-level rooms have private terraces. The dramatic cantilevered glass-and-steel restaurant throws farm-fresh and foraged ingredients into divine Kumaoni creations, such as millet flatbreads and soybean dal. At the spa, bespoke treatments feature cold-pressed local oils – just the ticket after a morning taking on the trails.
