“Tranquility and Fantastic Vistas”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

If you enjoy tranquility and natural beauty then this is “heaven on earth.” Upon first sight, I cancelled my commitments so I could stay longer at one of the most serene, picturesque places I’ve ever seen or imagined. I highly recommend for anyone wishing to escape from the urban chaos. Be ready to put on a little weight as Shobhna creates delicious food, and generous portions. The hospitality, food and views are excellent. You may arrive as Kishore amd Shobna’s guests but you will leave as part of the family.

Room Tip: I think the corner room, (Royal?) is worth the few extra rupees as you see both the sun rise and the...

We had plan of visiting Shimla and decided this hotel based on the good reviews from tripadvisor. When I called Kishore (proud owner of this beautiful place), based on my plan he started explaining both advantage and disadvantage of the stay in Matiana, which hardly any business minded resorts do.

From there, it was totally warm experience all together. He made follow up calls and took total responsibility in organizing cab for pickup, local sight seeing and evening our Manali transportation arrangements. We are frequent travelers and confidently say that, it is the best place to stay.

Even before our arrival, everything was in place (hot water, cookies, tea and breakfast) so that we don't waste our precious holiday time in waiting for these. They suggested the best places to visit and organized Christmas celebrations (wasn't part of our package and neither they charged us), you can never find hotel which serves dry fruits as snacks along with other mouth watering dishes.I can keep writing about them but I wish all my fellow travelers to experience.

All the best "Krish Rauni" and continue your good service

“GAR FIRDAUS BAR RUE ZAMIN AST, HAMI ASTO, HAMI ASTO, HAMI ASTO”
“IF THERE IS HEAVEN ON EARTH, IT’S HERE, IT’S HERE, IT’S HERE” - FIRDAUS
If Heaven be on earth, it is here,here here at Krish Rauni. Under the direct care and concern of motherly Shobhna Bhabhi and more than brotherly Kishore himself. I loved the place,the peace,the tranquility so much that I have turned up again like a proverbial bad coin.The whole family loved the place and the experience so much that my Son chose Krish Rauni as his Honeymoon destination.
This New year 2012 was ushered in great style and elan by the lady of the House.We enjoyed the NY party thoroughly.It's gr8 that the Jr. Kishore - Vineet has joined his Ma & Pa to take the Home Stay concept ahead.I am eager to revisit the place.... nay the experience.
An out of the world experience....in this very world. Thanks Kishore_Shobhna & Vineet.

Room Tip: All rooms are good, overlooking the valley.But sunset is visible from Royal Deluxe Room only.

I stayed there with my wife and my 3 month old daughter. The first thing that you would like here is that of homely environment. Whether its the food or the Mr. Kishore's family. Sometimes you feel as if you have visited your relatives house. Matiana has a rustic charm to it. You can almost hear birds chirping few kilometers away. The best view is of sunrise. You can enjoy right from your bedroom. You can see the day light spreading through the ranges. At one point you would see that one side its day and other side night (dark) still there. A very good place to re charge yourself. Enjoyed the stay throughly.

This resort provided us a true holiday, a time away from work and mess of civilization. It gives one of the best combinations of location, environment, view, food and weather upwards to Shimla. I highly recommend this resort for its calm and peaceful environment and amazing view of the valley. The family that runs the hotel is extremely accommodating to all our needs and are very friendly. Food is homely, and the hotel is equipped with all things necessary, they even have swings for kids to play, Table Tennis etc. I am pleased that they don't have TV in the room, it gave us those precious moments to spend with the family and the beauty of Himachal.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
It's a home away from home – since it's managed by a family. Krish Rauni Resort is situated at a height of 8,000 feet at Matiana in Himachal Pradesh. Himachal is a part of the Great Himalayas of India. It is on the Hindustan Tibet Road (NH22) – only 45 kms. ahead of Shimla. As the name suggests it is set amidst an extensive Apple Orchard overlooking a vast valley. It's surrounded by Apple trees, lush green fields of cash crops like potatoes, cauliflower, peas, cabbage etc. Stay at Krish Rauni Resort offers a very different experience altogether. Being situated on the ridge one can enjoy the view of rising sun one side and the grandeur of the setting sun on the other side. There is a huge terrace overlooking the valley. A perfect place to enjoy breakfast under the umbrella and spend hours of leisure sitting under the stars during dinner time. During full moon the valley offers an awesome view under the spell of moon light. Food is cooked and served on order. ... more   less
