'Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.'
- Albert Einstein
In the faraway lands of the mighty Himalayas, the mountains grace the tranquil greens, silence speaks a thousand words and nature appears in full glory. In such mystical lands of peace and solitude, lies FARAWAY Renz.
Things that are unique to this place - Himalayan Range view from the Porch of the Bungalow. You don't get that so easily, trust me. Local food prepared by the cook ( we had the liberty to choose anything we would like to eat. Board games to play by the fireplace, yup that's right, indoor fireplace. We went to nearby trek, watched sunrise right from our rooms, there is a friendly dog who is quite interested in selfies . Overall if you are looking for a peaceful break in the lap of beautiful Himalayan mountains, Far Away Renz is a must.

If you are planning for a peaceful vacation with your loved ones, then faraway renz is the place to fall in love with, it is as simple as that. Take a break, and do go to Faraway Renz.
The resort has 6 cottages and an opulently rustic bungalow. The rooms are are superb example of masonry with stone blocks and pinewood roofs and panelling, with modcons. The cottages, interestingly, are all named after famous single malts of Scotland- Mactavish, Grant, Mackenzie and Bowmore! The view of Kumaon Himalayas, from Trishul to Nanda Devi et al is to die for! The picnic table on a ridge overlooking the valley takes the cake. The Kumaoni cuisine is simple and mouthwatering. There is even a children's play yard with slide and a sand-pit!
We visited Renz during January 2016. It was one of the most tranquil, rejuvenating and memorable stays in a long long time. The views from the cottages was breathtaking during the day and nights were even better with the clearest sky - unbelievable view of the stars in the sky - something one does not get to notice in the polluted Delhi air. Run by Rishi and his wife Nidhi who took great care of us... they have good facilities, serve some delectable food and even accompanied us to some short beautiful treks. They also arranged for us to cook over a small barbeque in the evening - great experience!! But the best part is the silence, it is almost therapeutic for city dwellers. Plan to visit again very soon.
The stay at Faraway Renz was one of my most memorable holidays to date. Everything about the place was far ahead of our expectations. The rooms, the views, the food, the service and the peace and silence of that we so badly wanted. The facilities are as good or better than some of the best resorts I have been to. The food was customized to our liking and the service was personalized to give us the privacy and the experience we wanted. The views from the resort are breathtaking, use a cliche. Fortunately for us the skies were clear and we got beautiful views of the snow-peaked himalayas by the day, and the stars by the night. I have never seen so many stars in the sky from anywhere before. The trees and the treks around the place are very good, and unspoilt by crowds and pollution. Want to go there again and again.
