“great stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014

the wilderness is an EXCELLENT place. The rooms are looong, very comfy. very clean . Love the end of the room- a closed balcony- with glass windows- gives you a feel of being right in the wilderness. The food is awesome- no menus- more like a home meal buffet spread. We were asked what we would like to eat- and Rajesh would even take trips all the way to chandigarh to get us chicken. The best part was the evening bornfires. We went in May- but was very cold up there. Every evening there was a born fire lit up for us- snacks served before dinner. The wilderness can be very quite- if you like that-its perfect- serene , peaceful, beautiful view. It can also be a super fun place with friends. Just sit around the bornfire - drinking, eating......... Rajesh was very very hospitable, and he had a battallion of staff- who were also hardworking, courteous boys. We had so much fun. we had gone as a family- with our 2 boys and parents.........this time we will go with friends- and it will be a blast.

Room Tip: all rooms have a great view

As a couple we wanted to go to some offbeat location,far away from that 'city' factor which you may feel even in a place like shimla.so we came across this very interesting place called "Wilderness" on some website.it took us more than an hour to reach there from shimla..
And shall i say that we were sooo right in choosing this place??!! It justifies the fairytale tagline. The lovely view,spacious rooms,welcoming staff and the facilities they provide will give you the value for money which you gonna spend. Its amazing and surprising to find such good quality food far away,in the lap of mountains! Personalized service was a pleasure. They were very concerned about making us feel comfortable. Its an ideal place for friends and family.
We actually did spend the best part of our one week trip in those 24hours! Cant wait to come back again with our friends. An excellent place to visit,trust me. :)

An unplanned trip lead us to The Wilderness. Excellent service, rooms and personalized service by Mr. Rajesh. Right place to relax, enjoy beauty, walk by the lake, pine trees and open sky with valley. Rooms are great and customized service makes it icing on the cake with cherry being location.

Room Tip: Suites are the best.

We visited the resort from 26 to 28th May 2012. First of all the location struck, close to Shimla, within hills and still such serene place. more than an hour drive from Shimla, the place Narkanda mesmerizes you at first sight. Moreover, the resort the wilderness, located at the bank of Tannijubbar lake is treat in itself. The wilderness is very personalized small resort of 5-6 rooms, owned and managed by Rajesh. From off location resort perspective, we were impressed by the personalized treatment at the resort and we hope this remains like this only.

Not having managed a room at Narkanda earlier this month, The Wilderness came across as a savior in monsoons. We stumbled across their board, spoke to the owner Meenu who gladly accommodated us in her hotel. We reached at night amidst thunderstorms but were quickly shown own room. Despite having no prior information about us coming, they cooked a great dinner for us. The room was huge and divided into 3 different parts: a small living room, the bed room and a look out facing the hills. It had the largest bathroom I have even seen.
The real beauty struck us in the morning with the breathtaking views of the hills surrounding the resort. Lush green hills bearing apple trees; what a view. In fact the resort itself has apple trees in plenty and plucking them and eating them fresh is a feeling nothing can beat. Breakfast again was a decent spread and we enjoyed every bit of our stay there courtesy the staff and the owner. Highly recommended for a nice relaxed outing with family or friends.

Room Tip: All rooms offer breathtaking views

Wow. This place is heaven. The route:- Chandigarh - Shimla - Narkanda - The Wilderness. It's about 9 Kms beyond Narkanda and located at a place untouched by the rat race of modern life.

Visit it to relax and enjoy the company of the lovely owners who treat you as family.

If getting away from the maddening city life and relaxing in the lap of nature is your idea, then this is the place to be!

And Yes, the cook can whip out a variety of cuisines, and they are all very delicious.
