The property is very beautiful and has an awesome view. The owner is full of life and his hospitality is amazing. The food is to die for.
So if you are looking for a fun filled an relaxed holiday i suggest you try out JAWS.

“Amazingly hospitable B&B in a spectacular setting near Sattal (Nainital)”
Reviewed 17 September 2016 for a stay in April 2016

I have been to Jaws at Sattal every year since 2013, and have never been disappointed. Jaws is a gregarious and gracious host, a passionate foodie, excellent cook, and a great storyteller. His cottage is perched on a hillside with a view of Bhimtal in the distance, a few minutes drive or a 20 minute walk from Sattal.

The rooms are well maintained, spotlessly clean, and have premium linens and toiletries. Food is home made, by Jaws himself, a self taught chef who specializes in regional Indian cuisine, but also does some great continental dishes. Every evening, especially in the cooler months, he organizes a cozy campfire in his lawns under the stars, where you can bring your own drinks or share his never ending stock of rum and stories.

If you want to do more than relax and eat, then you can try some of the nearby adventure sports like paragliding (I prefer to watch from the comfort of my room), boating in Sattal or hiking in the nearby forests.

“Not so far from Delhi, yet cool and beautiful”
Reviewed 17 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

It's a beautifully run place with a charming host who's a master chef. The rooms are spacious, neat and clean, tastefully done up with a kitchenette and attached toilet. If you are looking for a great view, great food and a great time, Jaws at Sattal is a must visit. We have gone back a few times and have come back refreshed and wanting to go back again.

“A small piece of heaven”
Reviewed 17 September 2016 for a stay in September 2015

Visited JawsatSattal last September when I visited India. I had never been to that part of India before and was looking forward to the holiday in the hills.

Getting to Sattal is very easy. Overnight train to Kathgodam and then taxi to Sattal. The drive is very picturesque.

Jaws' place is a beautiful setting with a glorious view of the hills and the valleys below. The cottage has a well kept garden where you can relax with a drink and admire the view. The accommodation is very luxurious with very well furnished bedrooms and helpful staff.

The best part of the holiday, apart from the locale, was definitely the food, cooked with care by the host who is extremely friendly and gracious. Made our trip very memorable.

I definitely plan to visit again on my next trip to India.
