We really can't say enough good things about The Amber Vermont Estate!
We booked this Resort for our Honeymoon and we were so pleased we did!
Firstly, this is a beautiful Estate situated in the foothills of the Himalayan's, near Mussoorie, India. It was about a 2 hour Knuckle drive up some pretty steep and obstacle riddled roads, but the drive was well worth the pain.
The resort is nestled in a very private area on the mountain, just enough away from any noise of the town. The resort was finely kept, with beautiful gardens and well manicured lawns and garden area. We were greeted by a very friendly staff upon our arrival who made sure our room met our expectations.
The room was well appointed with all the amenities we needed. The bed was very comfortable and the room offered ample ventilation. Even with the heat in Dehradun exceeding 100F, it was a very comfortable 80F in Mussoorie each day and even the occasional summer shower kept things very comfortable.
The best thing we found at this lovely resort was the food and the staff who worked at the Restaurant. Each day we were met with very friendly staff who served the most delicious food! We ate like Royalty and enjoyed every meal that was presented to us! There was not a single meal we didn't enjoy and for this alone, this was worth every penny! We felt the food far exceeded our expectations and the value was excellent!
The Chambermaid staff were very friendly, very helpful and always there immediately whenever we needed anything at all.
Overall, we can't say enough good things about The Amber Vermont Estate. We loved the location, the facilities, the room and most of all, the food! We would definitely recommend this place for even the most discerning traveler and we WILL be returning here one day for our Anniversary... :)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Amber Vermont Estate is a boutique retreat in the Himalayas. Vermont Estate was originally built in the latter half of the 19th century by a Britisher and is one of the oldest estates in the Himalayan town of Mussoorie. It has been refurbished to retain the atmosphere of a traditional English cottage with the addition of modern amenities. The property is located in one of the most beautiful areas of Mussoorie. The location, and the mix of modern comfort, old English charm and personalized service make The Amber Vermont Estate a treasure in Mussoorie. In the early 1800's, Vermont Estate was part of a grand estate called Logie Estate owned by the well-known Dr. Hugh Falconer. Dr. Falconer was a Scottish geologist, botanist, and paleontologist. He was the first to discover the remains of fossil mammals in the Siwalik Hills of India. In 1832, Falconer became the Superintendent of the Saharanpur Botanical Gardens, one of the oldest existing gardens in India. ... more less
