The Exotica is a well maintained hotel, quite neat and clean. It is away from the main city of Dharamshala and also away from Mcleod's Ganj.

a perfect place to spend sometime with yourself. Away from city. Close to nature. Staff is good. Abhishek at reception & Elton (F&B Manager) was very friendly. Big rooms. Clean bathrooms with good toiletries. Nice swimming pool. Table tennis. Only drawback - its not easy to locate. And Bar facilities is not available. They serve beer only.

One of the better destinations to stay in Dharamshala. Rooms are spacious and clean. Service is good esp. Mr Rajesh in front office and Mr Elton who manages F&B. The quality of food is good and one can order food of your choice. We enjoyed our visit thanks to the staff.

Stayed overnight with a group of 18 persons,all family members.Reaching the resort; It was not easy to locate the resort as locals could hardly guide us.My son could reach through GPS navigation. Staff was courteous and made us comfortable after we reached at 10.30pm and attended us well past midnight. Morning was very pleasant and enjoyed the morning tea watching... More

This lovely place is tucked away ,well off the beaten track. Staff are lovely, can't do enough for you. Breakfast was pretty good, dinner menu a bit limited but considering the location it was fine. The views are absolutely out of this world!! There is a pool, I swam in it, it was absolutely freezing, but it is early in... More
