We were pleasantly surprised by this small property just off the busy Shimla highway.....quiet once inside the resort. Ours was just a one night stay on our way to Sangla. Built on the slope of a mountain, comfortable & spacious pine cottages in a thick cover of pine trees... was very relaxing to sit on the balcony, drinking tea & just chilling. We did a couple of hikes ( they offer with guide ),we were good on our own. Dinner with trout, dal subzi was quite good. Breakfast wasn't . Service was decent. The place was peaceful if there are no noisy groups on the tiny zipline etc. We were lucky there werent too many people when we visited.Could be difficult for people with mobility issues.
this property we choose to stay for our 2 days holidy and wanted to stay in a quiet and relaxed place and don't want to move out. This is situated on the highway going to shimla and just take a left turn and you will be in the parking lot. From parking till resort you will have to go by their small cars as road is so narrow that a big car can't go. You can also walk till the report as distance is juts 300 meters.
Rooms are made of woods and in btw of pine trees. If you are allergic to walk or issue walking on hills than this resort is definately not for you as rooms are on high attitutde and you would need to walk towards your rooms. restaurants are on below. So be prepare for a short hill walk or trek :-)
Rooms were cozy and have all the necessary things required. beds are too soft. bed linen are of good quality.
Food is average but you can give a try to local himachali food.
Small activity area is there for adventure activity for kids and adults that can be done in 10-15 mins.
Morning will start with the chirping of birds,
They have jacuzzi on the hill top ( thats chargable ) and you can enjoy the scenic beauty.
Over all we enjoyed our stay in mid of the nature.
Absolutely a bliss to stay at this property.. While driving en route to Shimla and Narkanda, i decided to spend the night at this wonderful resort. It is very carefully (nature friendly way) developed and just a walk-through brings up several little things that are enchanting for city dwellers like myself. The spa at the hill top calls to you and has been tastefully designed.
The essentials are all positive. Individual cottage rooms are comfortable and have all the necessities stocked up.. Food in the restaurant is delicious and the staff is kind and prompt. The room and the bathroom are both very spacious and hot water wasn't a problem at all.
There are a lot of areas for activities as well as for relaxing and lounging. sounds of birds is the most dominant, interrupted sometimes by a truck horn for the nearby highway.
Overall a very positive experience. Would love to visit again.
The property is widespread on a hill slope and has staircases and sloping walkways that cannot be avoided. I advise checking up in case of any issues with climbing stairs etc.
I visited this place in April 2019 with my husband on our impromptu trip to HP. We like to stay mostly in cottages/huts and not concrete hotels during most of our trips. So Aamod was the perfect choice for us. It is a beautiful resort in Shoghi just a few kms before Shimla,nestled between trees like Pines,Rhododendron and Oaks etc. with natrual scenic beauty all around. It is a beautiful property to stay when you want some peace and quiet , away from the maddening city life. There are a variety of birds that you can spot during the stay. We enjoyed listening to the chirping of the birds while sipping our morning tea in our balcony. The cottages are at quiet a distance from each other.
The cottages are very clean with clean linen , clean toilets, air- con , hot water and tea coffee. The food they serve is very tasty. They have a spa as well.
For dinner we just had a few drinks and a non veg kebab platter which was served with naan and dal makhni. It was scrumptious. The bar is also well stocked. For breakfast we had adrak tea, poori sabzi , toast with omelette and sausages which was again filling and quite tasty.
I would highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for some quiet and peace. However, not to someone who is old or has knee or walking issues since the cottages are build on the hill side and you have to walk a bit.
The staff is very hospitable and warm and take good care of you. We would like to go again.
Aamod Hotel Shoghi is not at all a reliable hotel. I had made a booking for 4th April initially, but had to postpone the booking as someone expired at my home. So we requested the hotel on 30th March to update the booking and we were told that the booking was finalized for 3rd May. Accordingly we got our trains booked, and made rest of the hotel bookings in Shimla. On 3rd April, the hotel called me saying now the booking has been cancelled.
Basically they got a corporate booking for 3rd May, hence they do not give preference to couples or any other family travellers. The hotel do not consider any persons time or money, they only run after money. Hence when they saw a big corporate fish making a booking, they didnt even think of my booking for even a second and cancelled it.
