A 4 Star Hotel , Nestled near the lush Shimla reserved forest, The Nilaya is a boutique hotel near Mashobra. Situated an hour away from the hustle-bustle of Shimla, the state capital of Himachal Pradesh, the area retains the pristine beauty of the Himalayas.

This was our second trip to The Nilaya. We really love this property, every corner has its own story. It is beautifully designed and Nilaya never fails for their hospitality. We stayed here for 3 nights and we really had best time here. Hospitality is 10/10 food is awesome. Kids zone, bar area , gazebo every corner is so lively. Expresing my stay in words is so difficult as it’s a feeling when you are there in The Nilaya. I will definitely come back 🔜. Special thanks Also we book cab through them to Narkanda and Pranav is very experienced and we really enjoyed our day trip with him.

First and foremost Travel: We went via train from Delhi to Kalka. From Kalka we took a cab. Cab reference is given by Nilaya only and Pranav was the owner of cab service. He only came to pick us up and I would suggest everyone who is going near shimla to pick him for the cab as he is super professional and sweet. He was cooperative throughout the journey. Stay: If you want a leisure trip and don’t want to go out of the hotel, Nilaya is the place to stay. We literally stayed in our room talking, playing in attic ( we played foosball day and night :p). Stay was good, rooms were spacious enough and all the accessories were available. Only downside that beds are very soft and we did not have habit to sleep on those kinds of beds and that is why we got some back pain. Food: There food is amazing, suggest you to try everything possible. We tried their himachali thali, chinese, north indian etc. Activities: We did stargazing which was amazing, we also went on a picnic organized by them, it was good but 2K cost was very high for that.

Beautiful location, away from the crowded Shimla. The food was top-notch! My personal favourite was the fish and chips. The rooms are pretty spacious. There are gazebos outside to enjoy a cup of hot coffee that look whimsical. If you’re visiting Shimla, do stay here for a few days.

This was my 4th stay at the hotel and it never disappoints. Always a warm welcome, great attention to detail and a thoroughly relaxing experience. Highly recommended for a special occasion or a weekend away from the city. The New Year gala event was an amazing way to bring in 2024 with views of the mountains as the backdrop and delicious cocktails on the terrace.
