With this glimpse of hope — homestays, boutique properties, hostels and luxury hotels are all geared up to make your stay a comfortable one in the state. Today, we have handpicked a few luxury properties in Himachal for some much-needed breather.
Scheduled to open in October, right in time for a festive getaway, Wildflower Hall looks nothing short of a picture out of Hogwarts. The garden trails will be perfect for a leisurely walk to breathe in fresh air or have the most sumptuous breakfast of 2020. Designed for a luxe experience, they have a detailed Corona update on their website that you should check out before making those reservations!
Their deluxe suite and premier mountain rooms offer views that will make your heart skip a beat. And, they have an infinity pool too!
Known as the castle resort, The Himalayan is your chance to stay like a royal. When you’re done picking up your jaw from the floor, enter halls that honour the historical significance of art and culture, and crash into the softest bed in the chamber room. It cannot get better than this. Bookings start next week onwards.
They also have private cottages that are ideal for long staycations with a well-equipped kitchen, writing desk, Victorian-style bath and a view that’ll keep you motivated.
Being the first mountain property of the Hyatt group, you can expect some brilliant attention to detail in every corner. Situated above Mcleodganj, close to the village of Dharamkot — if you’re craving a secluded vacation, your search ends here. The hotel is resuming occupancy from this weekend onwards.
Their room types include plush villas, majestic suites and clubrooms. Pack some warm clothes as the lush Deodar forest always keeps the temperature there lower than the rest of the region.
Most of their rooms have serene valley views that will instil a sense of tranquillity in you. Theog is a quaint valley village, 1.5 hours away from Shimla. This makes it a perfect location for couples who need a quality getaway!
Elgin Hall is a luxury property that sways between a homestay and a hotel, but it has to be on the list. With room names like — the tea room, ocean teal, sunset grey, french white, etc. — sipping on a hot cup of tea with a plate of cookies, will be a whole new experience here.
