Ziro was our second place to visit on North East India trip and we decided to book our stay at Siiro resort as it had such a good review on every travel website we had looked in to and trust me it’s all worth it. If you walk around the Ziro village you will notice that houses are build using wooden logs and the resort follows the same culture and the entire resort is made of natural logs of Pinewood which will give you a feeling of home away from home. We cannot call it a resort or a hotel it makes you feel more like a homestay.
The staff is really friendly and helpful. The Manager arranged us an auto-rickshaw to go around a village for site seeing, the driver was really friendly, he was explaining their culture and traditions, we really had a good time on the first day but for some reason he didn’t show up for the second day, we were travelling back on the second day and we were left with few places to visit, so we had planned to see those places in the first half but the driver didn’t show up, we hadn’t paid him yet so we gave the amount to hotel manager and asked him to pay him.
The hotel’s location is a perfect getaway from everyday’s mundane life, offering peace and serenity. The resort is located at Siiro village on the way to Talley Valley around 2kms away from the main Ziro main market, you may have to take an auto-rickshaw which will charge you around 250-300rs, The resort is surrounded by scenic grassland and natural forests with full of grown blue pine trees. please note that you may not get proper mobile network at the resort.
Siiro resort offers Standard, Deluxe, Super Deluxe rooms, and Pine suit. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. hot water is available, they do provide a room heater. We stayed in a standard room, the standard room is built of bricks and bed is made of wood, the other deluxe and executive rooms are completely built with fully thick log natural of pine trees including the bed which work as energy conservation benefits of thermal mass and slowly release heat overtime where the heating system is working well and can feel comfortable in winter.
The resort does have a library and we had a bonfire during our stay.
The room we stayed in dint had a TV, there was no wifi option available and you may also have trouble with the network.
The resort has an in-house restaurant, we had all our meals at the resort restaurant as the main village is quite far from the resort so we didn’t get to try any other restaurants. Food was really good, but the service is very slow, you may have to wait for an hour after you order your food, so make sure for breakfast you order beforehand.
