#15 of 59 hotels in Kasauli
Kasauli is a small hill town full of quaint relics of the British Raj. Situated about 1950 meters above sea level and nestling in the Shivaliks. It is almost midway between the major cities of Chandigarh and Shimla. Directly below Kasauli is the spread of the vast plains of Punjab and Haryana which as darkness falls unroll a gorgeous carpet of twinkling lights. At 3647 meters the snow capped peaks of Choor Chandini powerfully dominates the lower hills and across the undulating ranges, Shimla is also visible.

Cons: We booked 2 premium rooms for one night. The images shown on booking portals are totally fake or may be the condition was similar few years back. But presently the rooms are in very bad condition. The cupboards are broken, switches are dirty, bathroom is very very dirty and broken furniture in bathroom and rooms. Rust is everywhere. The bed was not clean when we arrived, it had hair strains and ZERO sanitization in room or outside. Pros: The views from room is the best, you can watch sunrise from your bed (after sanitization obviously). The staff is also very good. The food is good although breakfast options were limited.

Location is good . There are actually no direct hotels on mall road or neat tourist pt.so this hotel is located in a ggood reach to mall road. Of u use road to go mall u can pay upto 1000 for a trip from this palce and road uses thr same gng down one hill and climbing other hill and takes time. We chose a short cuut it's a little trek one can do easily and reach mall road in 10 min walking plus it was beautiful way. This short cut is right in front of the hotel u can walk anytime to mall and save money and time. View from the hotel isvery nice and mesmerizing. U can come wnd see valley anytime enjoy brkfast and meals thr. This hotel has Mini CCD cofee that is very imp as tea and cofee tastee diff in hills mayy b due to milk .CCd coffee cmes to rescue. Food is good in taste and thy can customise as per ur level of spice and taste. . mostly all mentioned items are avbl in the menu. Staff is good and helpful. Rooms r of nice area and we'll ventilated. Washroom r fine also. One can good walk in the hotel itself spacious walking area. Now the not good parts about it They wil not let u extend checkout at any reason. I requested to extend till 1230 bt wasn't allowed , or pay half the rent. They wil keep caling u . To chek out. We tuk brkfast and dinner plan 3 days most of the things r repeated. Like if u eat dal makhani in lunch u iwl hv in dinner also . Very few choices they make. Everyday u wil get parantha and aloo or chole. That all. Menu on buffet needs definite planning. Desserts are same eveyday. These two things were not good to me else it was good place to try and stay. I can definitely come to this place if thry work on their menu options .

I recently stayed at Kasauli Exotica. My experience is as follows:- 1) A decent hotel, good food, an amazing scenery from balcony. Rooms are spacious (atleast the one we stayed in). But as I roamed around, I saw all the hotels are constructed on the hillside and facing the valley so as to give good scenic view. 2) We reserved our room in advance which was confirmed. On reaching, were told room not available forcing us to take a higher tariff room. Thereafter, the manager insisted on aadhar card and covid certificate in hard copy. Hence, opened the suitcase in reception and completed the formality. Thankfully, we were prepared. We had driven 300 km and must be tired had no impact to the hotel manager. The aspect which surprised us was that the Hotel manager declined to reveal his name and we didn’t pursue also. 3) We noticed that the WIFI is very poor. As both Airtel and Reliance mobile net coverage was also suboptimal, accessing the net was difficult. The Hotel manager said WIFI is good and gave us repeatedly wrong password and username. Sometimes, it is Kasauliexotica or hotelexotica or exotica@456 or exotica@123. 4) We asked the hotel manager how to go to the Mall road. He stated 1.5 km by road and 700 m by walk. He suggested we avoid taking our car as parking was not possible. He also demanded Rs. 500 for a drop which we thought was exorbitant for 1.5 Km. He adviced the walk as it was nearby. He somehow forgot to mention that the 700 m walk entailed 50-60 degree climb through jungle with not many people to guide you through the trail route. Hence, not only we were panting badly after getting lost on few occasions. A drizzle made thing worse. Mall road is nice place to walk around but don’t attempt the trail walk unless you are super fit and like hiking. The mall road entrance has a muliti-storeyed car park and hence parking was not an issue. 5) As we returned from our jungle –mountain hiking /mall road trip, we ordered sandwich and pasta. We had liked the lunch of rice, kadai chicken and mixed veg. Hence thought of having dinner at hotel itself. After, one hour and numerous calls the sandwich and pasta arrived as their grill machine was defective. The chicken in both the items was half cooked and we threw away the items. 6) The hotel service starts only in the morning 0800 or later. So if you want a cup of tea in the morning, forget it. The hotel also doesn’t have extra beds but provides extra mattress at additional cost.

Just checked out and writing this review. Stayed here for 2 nights in premium Valley view. Weather was great & it's the only reason I am calling this Stay ' pleasant'. I personally would never choose to come back and stay in this resort due to following reasons- 1. Rooms are extremely old condition. Beds ,doors , windows all are in pathetic shape. 2. Food from this place has no taste. They have a mandate to order before 10pm for which they will start calling/pushing you from 8pm onwards. 3. Service is worst of all. We had to call 7 times to get our room cleaned , even left the keys with them when we went out but came back to uncleaned room. 4. You would need to call room service atleast 4-5 times to get smallest of things eg - glass, plate etc. Or even while checking out to pick up your luggage. 5. Don't rely on their wifi . Out of 2 nights, didn't work for 48 hours. People choose resorts in the hills to have peaceful time, however you won't be able to find that here. We couldn't see property manager even once during our 2 nights / 3 days stay. Book at your own risk.

Nice location almost on the top of kasauli. Rooms are good. The view of the valley from balcony is awesome. Food is good. Staff very cooperative and helpful. There is a small outdoor play area for kids. Parking space is limited. Very near to Mai market around 1.6 kms.

Stunning view from balcony, lovely location. Friendly staff and their courteous service impressed us and we would love to visit again and recommend friends and relatives. Due to low occupancy we missed our buffet breakfast as they served us in room. Next time I would love to see their buffet.

This was my 3rd trip to Kasauli & my 3rd stay at Kasauli Exotica. Hotel is nestled at just the right location & one can get an amazing views of Dhauladhar ranges from its valley facing rooms. On a clear sunny day one can clearly see Shimla (on a clear night it gives even more amazing view with the city glistening under lights). Rooms are just about perfect size, with balconies in all rooms where you can sit & unwind over a cup of tea, coffee or beer. The best part of the hotel is it’s open terrace type dining area (there is an option of closed room type dining area as well) where one can sit & enjoy their meals in midst of lush green mountains. Mall Road is about 2 kms from here. The staff is hospitable & friendly, though at times lacks coordination. Special mention to Kuldeep who is always willing to walk an extra mile & help. Room/food prices are in line with similar accommodations. Bathroom sizes are a bit small, but won’t trouble much unless one wants to spend an entire day there. The food preparation is decent enough, but those expecting large buffet might get a little disappointed. The hotel allows only couples & families, which is a boon for those planning a private time with loved ones. The property is showing some signs of ageing & I hope that the owners/management will take care of it before it deteriorates. Overall a nice, comfortable & peaceful place to stay & create wonderful memories.

This is a great place for a relaxing stay. Here's what I loved about it: 1. The balconies have a sweeping view of the valley. 2. The restaurant has an outdoor terrace where you can soak the sun, read, chill out. 3. The staff is very friendly and professional. 4. There's lovely live music in the evenings: old songs that create a cosy vibe. 5. Very reasonably priced food. 6. The breakfast quality is very good (especially the parathas are superb) 7. Room service is quick; rooms are clean and there is heat. 8. It's close to the Mall, walking distance (less than a km if you take the climb route) Overall, a great stay.

Went with my friends for a 2 night stay. It was a really wonderful experience. Just 2 KM from Mall Road, you simply climb (If you can) or else just take your car or a taxi. Food is really Awesome (except aloo gobhi, however they didn't charge us for that). Staff is very nice and a special voice out to Kuldeep Ji at the front desk. A very humble guy with always ready to help attitude. He specially opened up the inventory for another room for our other friends. Valley view rooms are must to take.

With a valley view room, a deck that offered breathtaking view of the mountains and the hotel staff going out of the way to ensure your pleasure, this was my most amazing family holiday that I won't forget ever. My gratitude to Mr. Sanjeev and his team. Special thanks to Mr. Vineet and his team. Complimentary khichdi and milk for our infant daughter added to our delight.
