“Awesome holidays”
Reviewed 1 May 2012

We had an excellent stay at krishrauni under superb care and hospitality of Kishore ji and his family. The resort has an absolutely stunning view and we were lucky to view some amazing sunrises, rainbows, misty mountains and clear skies from the comfort of our verandahs. The service is personalized and you feel that you have landed at a friend's house. Overall highly recommended.

Beauty in simplicity --- that's the essence of Krish Rauni, the tiny little homestay in the picturesque village of Matiana. You wake up to the gorgeous views of the mountains, sitting pretty right outside your windowframe. It's like facing a Van Gogh painting. The rooms are comfortable though absolutely no-frills. But that's the hallmark of a good homestay. Adding to the flavour of this homestay is the warm hospitality of the Kishores, the enthusiastic couple that runs the place. Mrs Kishore's cooking will ensure that you put on a few kilos :-) but you can always work off the calories with long walks in the hills. A great place to just be and discover the joy of doing little or nothing at all. Ideal for solace seekers, family as well as loners! There is something for everyone at Krish Rauni.

If you are looking for nature, mountains, fresh air and silence, if you are fed up with the crowds of people, this is the right place for you. Quiet, homely, hospitable, familiar, comfortable and especially absolutely clean. Ideal for romantic, relax or families with children. You can spent hours just looking on the panorama view on the valley surrounded with high mountains, either on the balcony next to your room or on the terrace in front of the house. If its 2500 m high is not enough for you, you can make a trip at the Hatu Peak (3400m) next by and enjoy its amazing Himalaya view. Mr. Kishore gives you found advice on your stay (incl. car picking you up from Shimla, Kalka) and takes care for everything, while his wife introduces you to the Indian cuisine. We spent here (with our 2 kids ) two unforgettable days and will definitely try to come again.

Room Tip: Choose "Royal" if you can....

I never experience my holidays better that this ever. It was ideal place to be with excellent hospitality, Peaceful, natural & most importantly that we met most passionate & honest host in my life. Krish Rauni is not another resort. It is running and maintained by their truthfulness, hospitality and their culture. And, i believe this is the best way to define them. God Bless!

And, homemade food cooked by Mrs Kishore was icing on the cake! You just simply go and let them take over.

It looks far from Shimla but totally worth it!

PS: Am planning for my 2nd trip. Here i come!

My visit to Krish Rauni Resort was superb, Mr and Mrs. Kishore made us feel absolutely at home. The ambiance- star covered sky, greenery, the apple orchards and especially the snow peaked mountains at the distant ends, made our 4 days just soo peaceful. Our site seeing visits and adventure trekking to the hatu peak and the Mandir downhill was also a memorable experience. The services provided were first class, they were attending to our smallest of needs. Rooms were comfortable and always sanitized at regular hours. Food was another factor, we just could not stop eating...Aunty and uncle made our new year worthwhile. This place is definitely a must visit. The scenic beauty will just blow away a true traveler.

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
