The Exotica Dharamshala

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 February 2016

It has the most amazing view from the hotel rooms.
Behind at the top is nature , full of trees .
Problem is that its situated far from city access , atleast 3-5 kms away for any kind of shops and it has cottages and deluxe rooms at higher level (floors) from road.
Rest everything is fine.
Hospitality is good.
Food is nice.
Prices are bit high for a 3 Star Hotel.
I was told 4000 for cottage and 5000 for deluxe rooms in off season.
and higher in peak seasons.

Room Tip: Take Cottages if you can walk up.

I stayed in Exotica for 3 days. It was a pleasant and refreshing stay. The resort looks very good from outside also. The huts are spacious and clean. Since its built on some height, the steps can be a little pain but its totally worth it.
The staff was courteous and helpful. They even arranged for a bon fire for us on request. We were 2 couples staying there and had an amazing time.
Food was good .. not great but still good. Every day, we would have sumptuous breakfast and then roam around places in Dharamshala. I would recommend this to everyone .. It could be a little bit of a trouble for elderly since there are a number of steps and some of them are a bit steep. So be mindful of that.

The location of the property is amazing. Honestly, I wont say that the property is new or high tech...nor does it spread across huge spaces of land.....however what it does have is a fantastic home away from home feel.
Though its a nice property, one is surprised by the upkeep and comfort it provides to its guests.
Staff is good ....food is nice...those who want to spend time in peace..it's a nice place
Overall a pleasant and comfortable stay.....

The Exotica is a distance away from the main town of Dharamshala with no other houses or hotels nearby . If you are in group than its fine to stay as otherwise its becomes hard to stay longer than a day. Hotel lacks in terms of entertainment apart from pool & a TT table.
Rooms are spacious with all facilities.

Room Tip: Rooms are better than cottages
