Travellers' Choice
Woodsmoke Resort and Spa is a boutique property 13 km short of Shimla. Situated atop a forested ridge at 6200 ft, it is a place where butterflies dance up from the valley, rhododendrons line the winding trails and the air is fragrant with heather and pine. It is a place where there is birdsong and breeze. It is a place where you bookend your day with a misty morning and a blazing sunset unless a thunderstorm comes growling by. Have fun and adventure with yourself! In addition to 22 well-appointed rooms - an interesting mix of stone walls, ceilings and wooden floors - the Resort also has a spa, conference and banquet hall, business , games room, children's activity cum play area, reading lounge, restaurant and bar, making it an all-season business and holiday destination for family, friends and colleagues. The Resort is 20 km from the airport and 5 km from the railway station. There is ample private parking for guests who chose to drive up.

Away from the noise and craziness of Shimla crowd, this was the perfect resort for family vacation.Mr Lucky at reception was a perfect host.Soft spoken and always eager to help.Food was really good.House Keeping and room service was great ! The resort was very quiet and at great location with great views from the room. I would recommend this resort if you want to stay near Shimla but away from the crowd. A special call out for Mr Sandeep Sharma, who was recommended by Mr. Lucky as a guide for local sight seeing. Sandeep is very professional and soft spoken.He took us for sight seeing to Kufri ,Shimla and Chail.He knows the place very well and was very courteous throughout.

I usually do not write reviews, but this one was really required. Quiet place, amazing view from the room and lip-smacking food, unparalleled service, staffs are just too good. Really took good care of us. Just look no further and book this property in a quiet and calm place with the beauty of nature, without any hesitation. I always recommend Woodsmoke Resort to all my friends and family as it is truly a top benchmark in hospitality amongst all local and global competitors!
