No doubt that the property is good,but the entire staff is on strike since June 2016.We reached on 13 august 2016 and were surprised to see their staff shouting slogans on top of their voice, this got worse when around 50 staff members entered the resort, occupied the main reception and started shouting slogans that continued for 4 hours.

Me and my wife visited resort nearly a month back, and I have to say, that resort saved our vacation from getting totally ruined. We had pre-booked some other resort in vicinity which proved to be a nightmare due to ventilation issues in rooms, and consequently, within an hour of check-in, we had to scurry off back on road, leaving...

Hotel Rooms, location and house keeping are excellent !!! Behaviour of the attendants was very good. We stayed there during July 3rd week, 2016 and at that time, there was no chef in kitchen hence the food choice was not available. You should avoid staying in hotel between 4 PM to 10 PM due to heavy noise by protesters. They... More

This is a new property with all the amenities. Good choice if you are travelling with children. There is a play room which keeps the kids . Considering that we are in the hills where getting that proper taste is difficult I would say the food here is good.

If you are looking to getting away from the enormous crowd of people swarming Shimla, this could be a really good option. Located inbetween Mashobra and Naldhera, this is a resort of the Sarovar Group. We chose a family room that had two double beds. The room was spacious, clean, equipped with regular amenities (LED TV, minifridge, tea/coffee maker, in-room... More
