Stayed here for 2 nts of 5th & 6th October on way to Narkanda. Idea was a slice of peace away from the din of city life. Everything was much better than expectations, but only till evening. Come dinner time & the entire complex was blazing with loud Punjabi songs with a group of men & women smoking, drinking & dancing in full public view & in centre of dining area as if others privacy doesn't matter. Hotel management was a party to the din. So inspite of a wonderful place I reserve my opinions. The word professed is "Enjoy the Silence". But Sir, you spoiled it. Thanks.
This lovely eco-friendly resort is about13 kms away from Shimla's over crowdedness. It's a paradise tucked away in a peaceful hilly/mountainous area amidst tall oak and pine trees. From the parking below, their own vehicle takes you up a narrow road to the resort entrance. Quaint little cottages are spread all along the mountain slopes. You need to climb a lot of steps if you happen to get one in a higher elevation. Our cottage was cozy and furnished with modern amenities, had its own balcony and hammock. The view from the cottage was mesmerizing. You are nestled in a forested area taking in fresh mountain air and listening to cooing sounds of birds and noises of other nature's critters, instead of noisy vehicles and people. You do get to catch an occassional glimpse of a train winding thru the mountains. The resort houses a lot of facilities to entertain you. I particulary enjoyed the outdoor adventure course (zip lining, burma bridge, tire swing) and a relaxing massage in the hilltop spa. One can also lounge around in the open air jacuzzi. Meals were terrrific. They offer all types of cuisine. Room service takes a bit of time but the sevice is good. This place is a pleasant respite after a day of vigorous sightseeing. One needs to keep a day or two to just hang out at this gorgeous resort and chillax!!
Thoughtfully set cottages are clean and connected to nature. 20 to 30 mins drive to Shimla makes it convinent to roam around yet stay away from the crowed Shimla traffic.
The staff was very helpful and prompt to take care of all needs. We were a group of 25 and their service was very professional.
The resort is excellent.. par excellence.. great hospitality... Great staff.. very good amenities.. and the best of all - amazing location! In the woods, away from all worries.. away from life as we know it.. to top it off, a great resto with amazing cooks... A must visit if you want to be just away from everything and want to revel in great hospitality..
When staying at I discounted prices, the facilities provided are much more but same rooms at discounted prices do not offer the basic in room facilities and toiletries unless specifically asked for. A marked distinction. The staff is always friendly and very pleasant, no doubt and genuinely look to make you comfortable.
