This resort is marketed with a tagline switzerland in India ... And it truly is...

We went in Jan 2012 the entire resort was full of snow . The valley view from the resort was very beautiful.. if you visiting with family take their duplex room ... The rooms are very clean .. Room service is also good... Mostly staff is friendly baring their f&b manager...
In terms of facilities resort needs renovation.... Need to buy new tt table and snooker table....

Bar and food are just about average....

But this place is a must visit for it's location...

Just 8km from kufri the Ideal resort to enjoy winter weekend getaway...

We visited this resort with an extended family in a group of 25 people. The resort has a lovely view and almost all the room balconies open up in the valley.
This resort is actually in middle of nowhere so do not expect any mall road nearby.
Special mention for the food, we stayed for 3 days on a package and each day we were served a different menu.
The service is very courteous and efficient. They can even arrange for special activities like DJ nite and bonfire for groups.
Must say it was money well spent and we will definitely visit again.

June 2010

We stayed at this hotel for about 3 nights. This hotel is a bit away from Shimla town - about 20 km and hence we were a bit apprehensive about the same. However the moment we were approaching the hotel in our car, all our apprehensions got dissolved. Great location, nicely built.

Receptivity at the hotel however was not very great. We had to walk to the reception and wiat for sometime before we got our room. Service/ courteousness was decent. Rooms were good. View from the room was amazing - Independent cottages, very spacious, luxurious feel in reasonable budget. Completely surrounded by nature - hills & valley. Just one more resort nearby.

Food was also good- very wide variety. Depending on occupancy, hotel might arrange some programs, etc. Discotheques, etc hard hardly any people.

Location - suitable for travel to Kufri , Chail, etc. While going to this hotel from Shimla station, the taxi people at station might insist that you book return taxi since there are no taxi's available/ or about some some taxi unionism. However there is no such problem. Taxis can be easily arranged by the hotel staff.

Key attractions - Apples trees (apples within reach) inside & around the hotel, peaceful location. Must visit once.
