We stayed here for 4 nights from 17th Oct to 21st Oct . This is an amazing place that offers complete solitude . The place is on a hill top surrounded by complete greenery and is on the lap of Mother Nature . We were taken very good care by the entire staff members of The Dolina .The place is very clean and all the facilities were well maintained . The professionalism demonstrated by the staffs especially the manager , Sunil Thapa deserves special mention . The route to Dolina was a 4*4 drive from the foothills, a small and interesting hike . Sincere thanks to , the Owner , Mr Vikrant , who had come personally from Dehradun and ensured that our stay was more than pleasant and also enlightened us with many useful information about the place. We did a lovely nature trek above the hill . Overall experience was superb and its a paradise to all nature lovers .
a. Pleasant experience interacting with Vikrant
b. Good location within a farm, Even better if you go in a group and book the whole property
c. Good food
d. Good service by Sunil and team
We come with a family of 10 every year to Mussorie at least since the last 6 years in Summer vacation. We have lived in a lot of spaces in and around Mussorie in this time, hence I am writing this review. 9 of us stayed there for 7 days.
This cottage is in Mussoorie and Mr. Lohan the owner has acquired all the private lands around this place to maintain privacy of the guests. He also came down for a chat and explained us the meaning of the word Dolina (you must hear it from him in person) he has passionately developed this property, by making roads, electricity, water (fresh spring water which one generally buys for INR 100 but its free here right from the tap) is you insist I'm sure they will arrange you a walk to the spring, they did for us too.
The property is neat clean and very well spaced. we had also put an extra bed in our drawing room without any extra charge. The place behind the Oak cottage is the best to sit and have a drink even in the afternoons.
The Food is amazing not even once the NRI family members felt any kind of rumbling in their delicate stomachs even after drinking the same water. I suggest you let them know the menu before your check in till your check out as arranging things may be a little difficult especially for us as we were there on the typhoon days the weather was damn bad for the rest of the world But for Dolina Guests it is awesome all the time.
The Chef is amazing Mr. Tejpal, he will cook everything you want. Must try his pakodas for evening snack and his Mutton Rogan Josh for Lunch.
All meals are included in the package and one must take them.
we also had 2 Jain people and 4 hardcore non vegetarians and 2 vegetarians and 2 were kids. so no spice good fresh food nothing was repeated from the Menu expect Bread Pakoda with pudeena chutney on request.
There is a wallnut orchard right on the foot of this property which also belongs to Mr. Lohan. We played football and cricket there even Badminton (all sports equipments provided by Dolina)
Mr. Lohan also sent a masseuse male and female for a massage on request and billed seperately.
There is a driver and ATV especially for the guests if they want to roam around you just have to inform the chauffeur in advance.
It was a blissful experience we just went to Dehradoon Pacific Mall which is the closest and the best mall in Dehradoon. in 7 days we climbed down only once to get our urban supplies like BnR Icre Cream, KFC and Dominos. (It can be arranged on request)
