Luxury travel is defined less by money spent and more by the experience you seek or get. As traveler myself, I don’t like traveling in one particular way. If it’s rough-tough travel one time, then I might just like exclusivity, slight indulgence and pure comfort the other time. The way people travel these days has changed entirely. We have myriad choices and myriad ways to experience luxury while traveling.
Luxury travel is no longer confined to just first class stay or business class flights. Its focus has now shifted on how exclusive your holiday experience can be made. There is no dearth of services, trends, packages or itineraries, but there is always dearth of good suggestions.
Plentiful options exist today, and there is no way you can know each of it. In order to know them you need experienced travel operators, who have first-hand information and knowledge. It’s all about leveling up the experience and bringing out holiday ideas that are out of the box. If you are traveling to Shimla- Himachal and want an out-of-the-box travel experience then I would recommend these four splurge hotels. More than luxury, they offer a refined holiday experience.
Wildflower Hall is a fairy-tale retreat tucked in the Himalayan Mountains – serene and calm. There is no lack of amenities, but each suite of the hotel overlooks a vast expanse of gorgeous valleys and absolutely stunning azure sky.
Clarkes Hotel, “an oasis of calm on bustling promenade” is one of the oldest hotels in Shimla from the colonial era. It is from this hotel that the Oberoi chain of hotels was built. It is rightfully categorized as Heritage Grand for its baroque architecture. The dining hall of the hotel is unique because it is built without any pillars. Besides, the hotel has a glazed conference hall, a bar, close proximity to The Mall and rooms that offer special views of the distant vistas.
The Cecil, Shimla evokes the colonial grandeur with beautiful wooden floors, tasteful interiors, fireplace, rejuvenating spa and a very inviting ambience. The indoor heated swimming pool, highest among the world overlooks the spectacular view of snow-capped mountains.
Radisson Hotel Shimla is filled with a very contemporary feel and is a league apart with ageless beauty, world-class hospitality, aesthetically designed rooms, scintillating forest landscape and breath-taking views of the mountains.
Truly, Shimla is not just abundant in natural beauty but have luxuries that indulge and pamper you as a refreshing break from monotony of life.
