These Resorts In The Hills Offer Some Of The Most Breathtaking Views

If you’ve been looking for an excuse to take a break, let these resorts in the hills offer further incentive. By Harini Sriram

1. MAYFAIR Himalayan Spa Resort, Kalimpong:

The quaint hill station of Kalimpong in West Bengal beckons with its Colonial-era buildings set against panoramic Himalayan views. Tapping the best of what this little town has to offer is this sprawling resort, which was formerly the over-a-century-old Himalayan Hotel. The past still lives on here, especially in heritage rooms that have hosted the likes of Edmund Hillary and Jawaharlal Nehru, to name a few. Stories abound in every corner of this resort and the David’s Museum Library (named after the founder, David MacDonald) is a good place to get yourself acquainted with the town’s rich history. Unwind at the spa, or chill with a drink at John’s Tavern; the possibilities are endless.

2. Polo Orchid Resort Cherrapunji:

This rustic resort set in the lush green Cherrapunji valley offers spellbinding views of the Seven Sister Waterfalls and is close to the top attractions in the region. With a variety of rooms ranging from a log cabin with plunge pool to cottages with private walk-in balconies, the resort is sure to appeal to every kind of traveller. It also offers some fun activities such as zip-lining, cycling, cave visits, birdwatching, treks to the living root bridges and a slice of local Khasi lifestyle.

3. Kohima Camp Nagaland, TUTC:

The Kohima Camp promises luxurious accommodation amid verdant forests and mountain brooks. With four-poster beds and a personalised butler service to boot, these tents make glamping an exciting experience. The camp itself comes equipped with a well-stocked library and has an excursion specialist to help you plan your day. It coincides with the 10-day Hornbill Festival that takes place just 20 minutes away; soak in Naga culture, walk to villages in the vicinity, feast on local cuisine and wind down with campfires and camaraderie.
