We spent a nice weekend in Shimla.
The resort is located on Kufri Fagu road. It’s about one hour drive from Shimla town. Since we were traveling by our car so the location was not an issue for us.
The resort is located at the hill just on the road. We enjoyed a beautiful view of mountains.
There is nothing much to do near the resort except enjoying the mesmerizing view of sunrise from the hills.
When we checked into the resort at 8:30 pm around, so there was no view. But when we woke up in the morning, there was beautiful mountains view from our cottage windows and terrace.
We got a cottage room on the top floor of the resort. The cottage was having three rooms which were given independently to different families.
The room was small but well maintained. The room was having LCD TV, room heater, chairs and clean bedding. The room had two windows, one with mountain view and the other with a view of the resort.

The washrooms were also clean with proper toiletries.
Housekeeping & Service
The staff was very friendly. We asked for extra blanket and requested them to replace the heater. They honored our request immediately without any hesitation. Unfortunately our replaced heater was also not very effective. We did not bothered the staff again.
We ordered tea, coffee and boiled eggs in the room. We had the breakfast buffet in the morning. The food was average but not great.
The buffet included paratha, omelette, chole-puri, white bread sandwich, tea and coffee. The buffet was available to people who booked the breakfast meal at the time of room booking.
Cost & Discounts
We booked the resort from MakeMyTrip and applied a discount code MMTSPECIAL to get 1000 rupees off.
There are two prices for room – You can book just room or include breakfast (extra Rs. 500). I would suggest you to book the room with breakfast because there is no option to eat near the resort.
- The heater was not working properly in the room. We had to use double blankets and still feeling cold.
- There was a lot of disturbance from the adjacent room. The guests were playing loud music till midnight.
- The resort is one hour drive away from Shimla.
- Beautiful location with mountain view
- The room was equipped with all essential facilities.
- The staff was courteous and helping.
- Price is affordable.
The difficulties that we faced were incidental and you may not encounter the same situation. If you are looking for a resort under 4000 budget, then it’s a decent place to book.
