What's on your mind? A vacation or should we say "workation" in the hills? With secluded getaways gaining popularity among travellers, the newly launched Welcomhotel Tavleen Chail by ITC boasts being a perfect destination to soak in nature and work with a view. A short drive away from Shimla and Chandigarh, it is nestled in the midst of an oak forest and offers stunning views of the Himalayas and the surrounding landscape. Be it business or leisure, you can expect a luxurious stay with all the peace and calm you need at this offbeat destination.
For a stay at the hotel, you can choose from rooms and suites that are aesthetically designed, incorporating modern design elements. Every room has a private balcony with views of the mighty mountains. For your very own cabin in the woods, the hotel also has on offer luxurious cottages.
In dining, the WelcomCafe Monal (named after the Himalayan 'Monal' bird) serves the best of both global fare and regional Himachali cuisine. The traditional Welcomsthalika serves an assortment of authentic regional dishes on a platter. The ingredients are seasonal and locally sourced, supporting the farming community of the neighbourhood. The Swizzle bar overlooking the pine trees serves signature cocktails and an international wine menu for those idle evenings by the bar.
Experiences To Watch Out
Those who love the outdoors can go paragliding, off-roading and snow driving (in-season). The hotel organises picnics at the woods and meadows around the property or by the stream a short drive away. For some "me-time", you can lounge around at the in-house library, the temperature-controlled pool or book a rejuvenating experience at the K by Kaya Kalp spa. You can also join guided yoga sessions and on-site trails like the Oak Trail and Pine Trail. Kids have their own little haven in Ollie's Corner that has a host of outdoor/indoor play areas specifically designed to keep them creatively engaged and entertained.
