Namaskar from Aahana - The Corbett Wilderness, TripAdvisor Traveller's Choice Award for the 8th Best Resort in India for 2017-18!!!
Greet the first rays of the rising sun, or 'Aahana' in Sanskrit, at the finest hospitality provider in Corbett. Ideally placed between the dense jungles of the reserve and a local farming village, Aahana brings to you classic hospitality in a grand setting. Graded exceptional by our patrons across forums (Trip Advisor), Aahana has been voted in the exclusive list of Traveler's Choice Top 25 Resorts in India consecutively for the last five years ! It is a testament to our high service standards, and the ability to curate memorable experiences for all our guests. Our pride is our staff, majorly sourced from the local villages as part of our responsible tourism initiative, who offer exceptional hospitality at all times.
Mr. Kamal Tripathi and his wife Mrs. Sunita Tripathi envisioned Aahana not just to create a
resort but to create a family along with it. Mr. Tripathi comes from a family of Freedom
and from there his belief in giving back to society stems. Inspired by his upbringing he
local community in his endeavour
In 2002, as he laid the foundations of Aahana Mr. Tripathi imagined of creating a home not only for the travellers from all over the world but also for the 173 bird species, the 200 species of trees and various species of flora that live in Aahana today. With his dream come true, Aahana stands today as an ecologically responsible and sustainable retreat amidst the wild environs of Corbett.
The couple actively takes initiatives to help in the development of the region. They donated apart of the resort land where the hand pump for the village has been put up, and it has drastically solved the village's water problem. They even financially support the village school in whichever way possible. At a personal level, they offer compensation to people if wild animals cause damage to the people's property or cattle. A lot of awareness drives in the area are undertaken under Mrs Tripathi's guidance. The use of CFL and LED lights saves power and reduces the emission of carbon dioxide from the generators. The 100% waste management program also contributes to our motto of minimising carbon footprints. The last five years of love and respect from the village and continued guest patronage have reaffirmed our beliefs that we are on the right path.
