This is a fantastic place , in the lap of nature and away from the crowds . The location will blow you away. It is a great property perched on a hillside with great views of the valley below and set amongst Apple orchards and Pine and Deodar forests. The staff is courteous and helpful and the food is great.... More

The place is no less than a small heaven...dense forests, apples orchards, green mountains, snow clad peaks, river - all together make a perfect scenery. The place is so peaceful that we forgot the hustle and bustle of our daily lives. There are several roads one can take to reach this place. Better is to go from Shimla-Theog-Kharapattar-Mandhol-Shelapani, the road... More

I had been to Dwarika Residency on October 2011 along with my husband. We had stayed there for 3 nights. We reached there through a long car journey starting from Kalka, as unfortunately our tickets were not confirmed in the toy train. Such a long journey through roads which were really pathetic, made us doubtful about our journey. But the... More

Travelled Nov 2012 We stayed for 2 nights at Dwarika Residency and must say its really a small hidden heaven. Mr. Sudhir Khimta had arranged a taxi for pick up from Shimla railway station and the driver was very polite and friendly. When we stayed at Dwarika, nobody else had booked any room. So it was like me and my... More

This is an absolutely extraordinary experience: has almost five star amenities but with a homely feel. The setting is gorgeous, the house itself is thoughtfully designed. And the hospitality is unbeatable. The proprietor, Mr. Khimta, attends to every need himself--and his gourmet cooking is better than anything you will encounter at the top end hotels in Himachal. There are good... More

My husband found this place online after some research and we were both hoping it doesn't turn out to be a disaster. The night we reached was stormy and raining heavily and some hailstorm. We were really tired and hungry and worried. Mr Sudhir Khimta had helped us book a taxi to pick us up from Shimla. He was very... More

We love to travel in off-beaten trails where we do not expect any luxury / great service or similar things. Shelapani is not a popular tourist destination in the maps of Himachal so we decided to stay there in Oct 2012 for its wonderful location. And I've seen some recommendations in indiamike (India Travel Forum). Kudos to his recommendation....... It... More

This October was a fourth trip to Selapani in four years. This time it was a short stay of two nights only, otherwise earlier we always stayed here a week or so. Once you reach Village Mandhol, there is a mud road of about 2 kms going through beautiful pine and Deodar forest. The cottage is big and contains five... More

Just came back from Dwarika residency in Shelapani last Sunday. It is a beautiful place right in the middle of apple orchard. Since it was apple season, we were lucky to enjoy the trees loaded with the fruit. The place is very homely with all the facilities for a family even a small kid. The staff is excellent. The thing...
