“It was a memorable stay”
Reviewed 15 June 2012

I could not get reservations in Wildflower Hall. Looking for an alternative was stuck to find KrishRauni at #3 In Trip Advisor list, and so cheap.
It was a gamble, and that too going another 45Km ahead of Simla.
Reading the reviews made me pick up the phone and Kishore was very helpful.

We were warmly greeted by the hosts Shobhna, Kishore and Vineet, at the lovely resort located in the serene and tranquil Himalayas.
The road on which it is located is free from traffic and pollution, and offers excellent LEVEL walk with dense trees and foliage and beautiful valley views of Apple Orchards.
We had a sumptuous Candle Light dinners on Mr Kishore's dining table so thoughtfully prepared by Shobhna.
And to top it Kishore arranged a visit to an orchard down below his own orchard, where we plucked and ate Cherries.
Must say that Valley view from the glazed Veranda is beautiful, rooms are bright, airy, neat, clean and of good size.
After a visit to Rauni, am happy that we had been refused reservation in Wildflower Hall.

Being a Homestay owner at Varanasi,my views may say a little more than just a traveler.

I would like to start with the booking,excellent response to my emails and absolutely selfless solutions to all my travel arrangement request for transport etc.I would suggest future travelers to use experienced and honest help of Mr.Kishore,the owner for all your transport needs.

Location,excellent views of the mountain valley from the resort,exceptional mornings and evenings to enjoy at this place.

Rooms,simple,well appointed,clean.

Food,We tried only simple vegetarian Indian food and we enjoyed it.Breakfast has good choices,that one can inform the staff in advance.
Having Food at terrace is an excellent experience to remember.Though i wish owners would pay attention to increase the size of their closed dinning area as it is too small, if one feels too cold to eat in open,on the terrace.
Sightseeing,i would say again every traveler should follow suggestions and experience of Mr.Kishore,we were 02 couples with our 04 children,and,we used his knowledge of the area and i can say,we enjoyed each moment of our time in the area.

I wish every future traveler to know,apart from these above described professional qualities,this resort has a very special touch and generosity of hospitality of Mrs.,& Mr.Kishore and their son,and,they will make you feel at home , and you will get a feeling,if you are staying with your own friends and family.And this positive energy of this family is visible in the entire property,that one feels at peace,immediately after you reach there after a long travel,like we did.That positive energy is felt while you sleep in the rooms,while you walk in the property,or while you just seat out in the study portion of the 1st floor rooms,this spiritual feelings follow you every where.

I wish to thank Mrs.& Mr.Kishore and their Son,to have opened their house for all of us like,if we were their friends or family.Thanks you very much for sharing these 02 days with us and surely this is just the beginning of our romance with KRISH RAUNI RESORTS,we will surely comeback for more.Malika & Harish Rijhwani,Kanchan & Ajay Singh,and all our children from Varanasi

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent and facing the valley.

We were warmly greeted by the hosts Shobhna, Kishore and Vineet, at the lovely resort located in the serene and tranquil Himalayas. Every small detail was taken care of, to make our stay comfortable and memorable. A homely atmosphere, interesting chats with the family, the delicious meals cooked under Shobhna's expert supervision, never let us miss our home yet allowed complete relaxation in a wonderful setting with lovely people! A visit to the cherry orchards and a steep climb on the mountain trek with Vineet as our guide & team leader took care of the adventurous aspect of this trip.
The place is such that one never gets bored...one could sit for hours reading a book pulled out from the well stocked mini library or play carrom or table tennis in the recreation room or just sit on the swing on the terrace enjoying the cool breeze and the sight of beautiful mountains.
On the whole the experience is really great & was enough to pull us back to Krish Rauni as this was our second trip here!

Reviewed 28 May 2012

Encouraged by strong reviews on tripadvisor, we decided to go to Krish Rauni for a short break from the summer heat of Delhi, & we were definitely not disappointed. The positives are many, the most important being the tremendous hospitality of Mr. & Mrs.Kishore, which made us feel right at home. As mentioned in many reviews, the food was excellent. The location was terrific, overlooking a deep valley. Sitting out on the terrace at night in front of a comfortable bonfire, watching the stars twinkling in the sky above and the lights of distant houses twinkling in the valley below was a close to magical experience. Thanks to the game room with the TT table and TV, our 10 year old son was kept well occupied too.
Other than relaxing in the homestay, we did take a couple of walks up and down the surrounding hills through a pine forest and an apple orchard, which was a pleasant experience. The other interesting thing was a drive to Hatu Peak(altitude 3400m), from where one gets a good view of the snow covered Himalayan peaks. Hatu Peak is about a 20 km drive from Krish Rauni. The last 7 km of the drive, from Narkanda up a very narrow road where one jostles for space with buffalos intent on getting to one of the meadows for grazing, is an experience not to be missed.
Overall this was a great trip. If I have one crib, it is about the room that we got on the ground floor, which became very cramped with the addition of an extra bed for my son. I wish we had managed to get one of the rooms on the first floor, which looked to be much more spacious.
That aside, Krish Rauni is a place that I would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a relaxing break in a very picturesque part of Himachal Pradesh.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the first floor.

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
