“A big NO”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2010

Dear Reader,

A big No from my side for this resort as it is a huge disappoinment.
Everything is absolutely 180 degrees out of phase from whats mentioned in their website.
1. Its a totally deserted place on hilltop so you won't even find a tea shop nearby and not feel safe at all.
2. The staff is hardly to be find around.
3. Nothing like basket of fruits on welcome or anything.
4. The price is exorbiant.

My advice...look for a 5 star hotel in Shimla itself and don't get trapped by website.

Hi, This was our first trip to Chail and Kufri. Monsoons is a good time when you get heavy discounts and good hotel deals. And Chail was as beautiful and lush green at this time of the year. Cedar Heights is a 5 year old resort set in the foothills of Koti a place 10 kms from Chail.

Views from the place are amazing and monsoons made it very picturesque. An excellent place for bird lovers with opportunity to photograph and sketch. Cedar offers good home cooked food. You can take the trekking route as well have the option for snooker or table tennis.

Make sure you take some warm clothes as temperature dips to a low during nights. Kufri is just about 20 mins drive from the resort and makes a good option to spend a day and be back and relax with refreshing mouth watering snacks. The resort has rides for kids too. Overall a very good experience.

One must visit this place to view the most spectacular views of valleys of Himachal.
