I spent my Christmas holidays at The Exotica and it was the most amazing experience. The direct view of the sunrise from the bedroom was breath taking. The staff is super duper helpful as soon as we entered everything was catered for. In all it is an awesome experience.

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
