“Nature-Nature”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

For me it is hard to believe for this location near Mussoorie. Place has amazing views of nature but resort needs a lot of maintenance Mr. Agrawal does not seem to show a proper interest for
this resort. It is recommended for traveler who are looking for a place completely away from hustle bustle and basic accommodation facilities.

An amazing experience. We stayed at one of the family suits, complete with the fire place and the works! The best part was to be able to sit inside the room and gaze out of the window and get a perfect view. I had a just pleasant experience just sitting at the window sill, with a hot cup of tea and staring out at the view, it was misty and magical. The food is great too, as simple as it can get. The dining table in the eating area is actually a log piece of a huge tree and may be a few hundred years old. Lovely lovely place.

Room Tip: the family suits works the best if you are in a group of 4 or 5!

this jungle resort is a perfect getaway from the noise and clutter of city life. situated in the middle of jungle and as the name suggests is covered by cloud most of the times, espicially monsoon is an excellent choice to spent 2 nights here.
the jungle trek around the resort is also a nice activity one can try.
early morning breakfast in the middle of cloud and mist is heart pleasing.
try out log cabins or tents if you love adventure...
food is ok here.
dont have very high expectation but i am sure you wont be disappointed if you love nature and you dont nag much about specifics...
just go and enjoy nature..

Room Tip: Try taking Log Cabins or tents if u r adventurous...or else other rooms are also nice ..

The fact that its one of the oldest buildings in the area and is 6 km away (a beautiful and densely wooded drive/walk) from the hustle and bustle of the main town are reasons enough to explore the place. The reasons for my revisit, apart from these were the nice service, the lovely log huts and the free and constant supply of scenic beauty!
However, its not for the impatient traveler who needs quick and jazzy services, since the place tends to get a bit isolated and is meant for the non commercial traveler.

Room Tip: The log huts are lovely and cozy wooden structures with a super view of the hills.

A perfect place to recharge your batteries. The location is perfect- very near to mussorie,yet tucked away in a corner. The resort also provides an opportunity to indulge in adventure activities. This is the place for people who want to be close to nature, yet not completely isolated(especially if one is travelling with kids). The owner Mr Digvijay Aggarwal and his wife are always there to help. You get a feeling that you are guest at some uncle and aunt of yours, who help you, gives useful tips,but at the same time respect your privacy.
The staff too is very helpful. Do not to miss is the opportunity to indulge in bar-be que. One is provided with the stuff one needs and then you can prepare your own meal,under the twinkling stars with the bonfire blazing next to you! My kids just loved it!
Early morning walks and the adventure sports are not to be missed! A piece of caution- stick to the trek recommended by Mr. Aggarwal.

Thomas Hardy couldn't have asked for more. A British era bungalow, beautifully preserved and in the middle of nowhere in the Mussoorie hills. Mussoorie by itself is a pathetic caricature of a hill station with crowded streets, seedy hotels and bumper to bumper traffic. But just a few miles out of Mussoorie is the quaint Cloud End, run with a quiet efficiency by Mr. Digvijay Agarwal. He makes it a point to look after his guests and makes it a truly home in the hills experience.

Room Tip: There is a newly constructed annexe building in the resort. Subject to availability the rooms in the...

We had a wonderful 2 days at Clouds end, very scenic and peacful place to spend your weekend. The food was good ( similar to home made), staff was nice and well behaved. The sport activities are wonderful experience. Mr Digvijay the owner takes special care of his visitor, he has done an awsome job to develop a place away from the mad rush of the mall road.

It is a must visit ....if you plan to go to Musoorie. Early morning walks are great time to c the flora and fauna around the hill side.

not to forget there are all basic amenities available ..and 24 hr electricity coutesy a new genset.

Cheers..

Room Tip: cottage huts are good value fr money..though for a luxury time ...you can book the heritage rooms.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Cloud End Bungalow, built by Major Edmund Swetenham in 1838, is one of the first four finest buildings of Mussoorie. Four generations of the Swetenham family lived in this estate, which the Major received as dowry for marrying a local village girl "Gulabo nee Rose". Mr D.R Agarwal, a far-sighted visionary, bought the estate in 1965 but visit it a year later after making the access to it motorable. He was the first Indian owner of this private 400 acre forest estate. His youngest son Mr Digvijay Agarwal inherited the estate and registered it as a resort in the early '90s. This resort has undergone major upgrade for over a year now.'It was pay back time!' Says Mr Digvijay Agarwal, the owner of Cloud End. A new chapter has been added to the history of the hill station with creature comforts of our times mingling gently with tradition. Our inventory includes 4 Heritage Deluxe suites in the (Swetenham block), with 6 deluxe rooms in the (annexe block), an independent log cottage with 2 cabins, and 10 huts (still under renovation). We have a forty cover restaurant Rose's Diner offers a breathtaking view of the snow capped Himalayan range to the East; the Doon valley to the south; the Winter Line to the west and the Benog wildlife sanctuary sprawled to the north. Our 400 acre private estate has numerous nature trails of its own as well as hikes all around us. Popular among these are the Benog hill ( a Wildlife Sanctuary), Dudhli village, Bhadraj temple, Everest house and the Wishing Well. Cloud End Forest Resort is a small family run business in a 400 acre private forest estate. It offers solitude, calmness, peace, closeness to nature, adventure and wildlife to its guests. ... more   less
