This luxury tour to the foothills offers a two-night stay at the Oberoi’s opulent Wildflower Hall in Shimla. It’s a fabulous introduction to the Himalayas, and the perfect extension to a broader exploration of the country. Affectionately known as the ‘Queen of Hill Stations’, Shimla was once the summer playground of the British Raj, and the cosy town exudes colonial charm even today. The famous and much-loved “Toy Train”, which runs on a narrow-gauge railway built in the 1920s, is not to be missed. To connect the dots back down to Delhi, we suggest a stay at The Oberoi Sukhvilas en-route in Chandigarh. A new addition and the Oberoi’s twelfth hotel in India, this luxurious spa resort is surrounded by over 8,000 acres of natural forest. It is the ideal spot to relax, recharge your batteries and indulge in a treatment at the end of an exhilarating journey through India.
On arriving at the Oberoi’s Wildflower Hall, the remainder of the day is yours at leisure to relax and indulge in your fabulous surroundings. Located at the former residence of the Indian Viceroy, Lord Kitchener, this spectacular property sprawls over 22 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens. It looks out onto a stunning landscape of rugged mountains, snowy peaks and thick forests. Inside, the rooms are cosy and comfortable, many offering fireplaces. The luxurious indoor pool opens onto a large terrace with outdoor Jacuzzi.
This suggested luxury tour to the Oberoi’s Wildflower Hall, Shimla is merely a starting point to share a flavour of the possibilities. Every aspect is flexible (from the hotels to the destinations to the length to the sightseeing). For example, you may prefer to omit the suggested stay in Chandigarh in favour of flying back to Delhi from Shimla. Similarly, we can remove the last night at The Oberoi, Gurgaon in Delhi should you prefer.
