Feature story on Sterling Corbett
at the foothills of the Himalayas


Situated at the foothills of the Himalayas, the resort gives you a panoramic view of the Jim Corbett National Park and the Ramganga river. Sterling Corbett is the perfect escape for nature lovers – you can wake up to the birds singing, langurs calling and the river gurgling. A walk around the property is ideal for bird watching.



The resort has 42 well-appointed rooms and additionally, cottages that offer scenic views. If the weather gives you an all-clear signal, you can watch the stars come out at night. Come feel the rhythm of the jungle by spending a few days at Sterling Corbett - the wildlife safari is something we don’t want you to miss.

We also offer Sterling ‘CARES’ - a 360-degree comprehensive sanitization and hygiene program in association with Apollo Clinics to ensure the highest standards at the resort. This includes (and is not limited to) protocols designed around guest safety and hygiene - covering all public spaces and digital menus, for example. Safety, reinforced by contactless welcome experiences and a fully vaccinated team.

Stay with Sterling Corbett and you will come back for more. It is also the ideal choice for meetings, reunions, weddings, conferences and events. Our spacious venue options, large lawns and pre-function areas ensure adequate social distancing measures.

Highlights from the dining experience

Tree House, the multi-cuisine restaurant at Sterling Corbett offers a unique dining experience amidst the wilderness. The resort also provides contactless menus with a QR-code-enabled interface that can be used for room service, or at the restaurant. Guests can use their phones to scan a QR code, view the menu and place their orders on the phone itself. Multiple guests from the same table can also place orders individually and track them. Guests can make payments digitally, without any physical contact to ensure that high touch-points such as menu cards, bill folders and other surfaces are largely avoided.

Mini buffets can been laid out where only associates wearing masks and gloves serve food - with every table laid out as per social distancing norms, and extended meal periods.

The restaurant offers an à la carte menu, as well as breakfast & dinner buffet options. Do remember to try the delicious Pahari Bhuna Gosht and Gobi Adraki here.
