The Oberoi Wildflower Hall, Shimla


A luxurious mountainside retreat, set within 23 acres of secluded cedar forest.

Formerly the residence of Lord Kitchener, the spectacular Oberoi Wildflower Hall is set on a pine-scented mountain, only 45 minutes from Shimla. Towering 8000 feet above sea level, this glorious retreat occupies an exceptionally unique setting, and has been luxuriously rebuilt to recreate the grandeur of the area's rich colonial era. Take advantage of the secluded location, and refresh with a yoga session or nature walk through the aromatic cedar forests. For an afternoon of respite, the Oberoi Spa is the perfect place to relax, offering a range of exclusive spa therapies and massages accompanied by majestic views across the Greater Himalayas.

At the hotel's main restaurant, sample Pan-Asian and continental cuisine whilst viewing the spectacular surroundings from The Restaurant’s terrace, or sit inside to enjoy a colonial ambiance within the charming glass conservatory. For an aperitif or nightcap, the welcoming Cavalry Bar is the perfect retreat after a busy day.

Within this spectacular hotel, the guestrooms all afford unparalleled views across the Himalayas, unique amongst other luxury resorts in Shimla. Each room enjoys a vibrant interior and large living space, and is luxuriously furnished with a generous king-size bed and a luxurious marble bathroom.
