Te Aroha is owned by New Delhi based corporate lawyers, Sumant and Asha Batra.
Many years ago, as young travellers, they discovered Dhanachuli, a non-descript enchanting village during one of their explorations of the Himalayan foothills of Uttaranchal. They fell in love with the place instantly and a summer house came up on the top of a hill in the village no time. As they climbed up the success ladder, working round-the-clock, literally, the breath-taking view of the snow-peaked mountains, lush forests, enticing apple orchards, the meandering trails, houses on terraced fields and charming people of Dhanachuli continued to beckon him.
In 2010, at the peak of his career, Sumant, then of 45 years, took a sabbatical from globe-trotting, advising sovereign nations, multi-lateral institutions and MNCs across the globe, and basking in the glory of fame, and moved to the mountains for five years to convert their summer house into Te Aroha, their Place of Love.
In 2016, after establishing Te Aroha, Sumant resumed his law practice from where he had left off.
Asha and Sumant run a number of creative projects. To know more about them, please visit www.sumantbatra.com
