  1. I have a Club Mahindra Membership and I booked my holidays in Binsar through them. It was a lovely experience. The club Mahindra resort is well-designed and well-maintained. The resort is crescent shaped and very beautiful. The resort has all facilities that would make your stay comfortable there. It even has a small grocery store that sells locally made products. The resort has a well-maintained garden which attracts many species of birds to the garden. If you are a nature lover, you will surely enjoy this. The staff at the club Mahindra resort is very well-trained and efficient.Food there was delicious but a bit expensive, yet it is worth the money spent. The rooms of the resort are spacious.

    We also had the option of walking up to the adjoining village and eating out and shopping. The beautiful Himalayan peaks visible from the balcony made my stay at the Club Mahindra resort worthwhile. It takes about ten to twelve hours to travel from Delhi to Binsar by car. You could also take a train to Kathgodham. On the whole, my stay at Binsar was good, the staff was courteous and hospitable and everything there was just good. I wish I could have extended my holidays at Binsar. The beautiful Himalayan peaks, the lovely flaura and the wild life sanctuary all say one thing Binsar is worth visiting a second time.For more info visit Club Mahindra Reviews
