A Staycation in Shimla

Posted by Seema Gurnani | Posted on August 3, 2018

Thanks to decades of Yash Raj movies, we have come to romanticise the idea of sipping on hot coffee or chocolate in front of a warm fire with snow-capped mountains as the backdrop. While not all of us can travel to enjoy the breathtaking beauty of Switzerland, we have no reason to complain, with the mighty Himalayas in our backyard.

A staycation is a perfect option for those who love to travel but who also love to relax on their holiday. A staycation in Shimla not only gives you stunning views and vistas far removed from anything you have seen before but also amenities and luxuries that are top notch. Book a Chandigarh to Shimla taxi for the best travel experience. Here are some of the best places for your staycation in Shimla.

 

Wildflower Hall

Without a doubt, this resort located in Chharabra is one of the best on offer in Shimla. Located 13km from Shimla, this resort is built to give you the experience of staying in a luxury mountain chalet. With stunning views, an infinity pool, an indoor heated pool, spa, and customised meals, there is nothing that could hamper your indulgent staycation. The resort also offers activities like mountain biking and archery, and you could also surprise your loved one with a riverside picnic.

 

The Oberoi Cecil

The Oberoi group of hotels is well known for its world-class amenities, and the Cecil is no different. Located more than 2000 feet high up in the mountains, the hotel is the perfect place to bundle up and enjoy the stunning views. The Tea Lounge and Bar welcomes you with a roaring fire, and you can enjoy a cup of steaming hot chocolate and a book while snow falls outside. Other activities in the hotel include a spa, activity room, fitness room, and an indoor heated swimming pool.

 

Seetalvan Orchard

This staycation will prove to be different from any other holiday you have been on. The hotel is located on a working apple orchard, though the USP of the place is the view it offers. We can even go so far as to say that it is the best view in the world. The hotel offers double rooms and a bungalow with four bedrooms. So, you can go with your extended fam. The balcony overlooks the orchard and the rising mountains where you can load up on amazing photographs. The hotel is remotely located and is far from the hustle and bustle.

 

Woodsmoke Resort and Spa

This resort is all set to make all your Enid Blyton induced dreams to come true with their Attic rooms. The room has a low sloped ceiling made from wooden rafters and also comes with a balcony for you to have a private viewing of the mountains. The resort will be more than happy to arrange for activities for you and your family should you be able to pull yourself away from the relaxing therapies on offer at the spa.

 

Shimla’s ethereal beauty should not be missed and is luckily very easy to access. You can hire a car rental in Chandigarh to make the easy journey for a memorable staycation.
