This is some distance from Shimla (about 45 minutes, 20 kms) on the side road which connects Kandaghat to Dhalli. If you are driving from Delhi, Chandigarh you can either come thru Shimla, Dhalli OR take a diversion from Kandaghat go past Chail Palace ( highest cricket pitch in the world so I am told at least), past Shilon Bagh and then drive up to Kufri (and completely avoid the traffic chaos in Shimla). Set amongst the backdrop of forests and snow clad mountains the environment around the resort is serene and peaceful. On a clear day one can see the whole range from Badrinath to Pir Panjal. The accomodation has regular and deluxe rooms in the central covered dome shaped hotel complex along with separate 2 and 3 bed cottages at a level above the central hotel complex. Kufri is named after kufer or pond and has developed into a fine skiing area in winters. Right next to the resort is the great Himlayan Natural Park including birds like the Monal, the state bird of Himachal. In summers one can do horse and yak riding on the green meadows and if you are truly adventurous trek to the Mahasu peak. A delightful way to reach Shimla is to take the narrow guage train from Kalka to Shimla (96 kms by train, time taken 5 hours) and then get the resort to pick up you by road. Nearby is the amazing will flower hall mashobra now an Oberoi but sadly off limits to non guests.

Though this resort is huge and located at a nice place, it is definitely not the best place to stay while in Kufri. The rooms are not well maintained. The mattressed were old and smelly. The food quality was not good, nor was the service of the hotel staff. There was no lift and a lot of stairs had to be climbed for room at the top level.

On the positive side, there were lot of good nature walks around the hotel. There are good views from the hotel rooms. Unlike Shimla, there was lot of greenery and tranquility around.

You can stay at this resort if you don't have a better option at Kufri.

We arrived to Kufri hoping to see snow peaked mountains and there fore took a room facing the mountains. The view was amazing and we could see the snow peaked himalayas. So the rrom facilty was good.

The reception though could have been more freindly. They didn't help us in getting the vehicles for sight seeing and the help desk was also not up to mark.

You can visit this hotel just for its location
