This fairy tale luxury resort 8,250 feet high in the foothills of the mighty Himalayas is a picturesque 45 minute’s drive from Shimla, the capital of Himachal Pradesh. Set in 22 acres of virgin woods of pine and cedar it is the former residence of Lord Kitchener which has been rebuilt to recreate the grand style of the colonial era. From its vantage point, the hotel looks out onto a magnificent vista of rugged mountains, snow clad peaks and verdant mountains.
The restaurant at Wildflower Hall has a large open air terrace offering panoramic views over the mountains; guests can enjoy a range of Pan-Asian and continental dishes while enjoying some of the most breath-taking scenery in the world. For a more intimate private dining experience to celebrate special occasions, Lutyens, with its old world interiors and views of the gardens is the ideal venue. For aperitifs or after dinner drinks, the Cavalry Bar with wood panelling and original artwork, which reflects its gracious past, creates an aura of old world charm.
Trekking through mountain trails fills the senses with the scent of the earth. Thrill to the rush of water while rafting over the surging River Sutlej. Ride with the wind on a mountain bicycle through picturesque paths that go on a journey of discovery. On the other hand just enjoy the spirit of the mountains within the exclusive environs of the resort. Test skills at croquet, billiards and archery or spend an evening in the Card Room. At the end of a hectic day, relax in the magnificent heated indoor swimming pool or indulge in the exclusive Spa.
Whether in quest of adventure or an easy-paced experience, the Wildflower Hall promises a holiday full of surprises and unforgettable memories.
