Dear Guest, We thank you for choosing Polo Orchid Resort, Cherrapunji (Sohra) for your upcoming visit and we are super excited to welcome you to the Resort. The Log Hut is an enigmatic wood cabin built on the top of the hills. The cabin offers breathtaking views of the valleys. The cabin is built of Canadian Spruce Wood and dressed up in eclectic furniture which adds to its old world charm. The cabin also comes with a private outdoor plunge pool where you can enjoy the serene and have some drinks. Since its outdoor (but attached to the room only), we prefer not to keep the water filled and we fill it with the fresh water as per guest’s request and the other reason for keeping plunge pool empty is many times guests do not use the plunge pool due to cold weather here and since we try to save water from our end as much as possible, we do not keep it filled. Please be rest assured of fresh water in the plunge pool which will be filled in front of you given certain time to us or can be kept filled before your arrival. Please reach out to us, in case you need any other assistance. Sincerely Yours, Team Polo Orchid

"Check the description of their cottages and select the ones with a view."
"Check for a room with a good view. Some are great and some can be disappointing"
"Log hut with private plunge pool was definitely a unique concept"
"Misty Mountain Villa - they are situated at the corner of the mountain offering a uninterrupted view of mountain"
"All cottages are good but avoid room number 501 to 504...too close to entrance."
