We all were quite astonished when we reached the hotel as we had payed a lot and had very high hopes from it (7000/night for 3 persons). The hotel is not completely done and there is still some work going on. Rubble, bricks and cement bags can be seen lying around. The hotel too is located in a very remote... More

A bit disappointing experience in exotica. Rooms are not clean. Bathroom built in such a way that Toilet gets drenched while having a shower. Spiders sprawling in the room!!! They need to work a lot on service also. Food and tea were served cold. Staying in Exotica was like a compromise. Thanks to Vikram Ji for trying to make us... More

Warm comfortable cottages and the courteous staff make the stay very pleasant. Mecleodganj being jus 10 km away leaves a lot ov options for exploration. I would recommend Tibetian kitchen for a tasty and economical meal. The swimming pool at the resort Facing the deodhars gives a spectacular view. The staff arranges for bonfires for you putting a cherry on... More

Room was good, staff good, excellent food and for breakfast Vikramji coordinates very well and you are served all the items fresh. Really satisfied with the service. Little difficult to find if your driver is not aware of the area, so please contact hotel and ask them to explain about logistics once you enter Dharamshala.
