    Highly overpriced, a nice attempt wasted due to lack of facilities
    on Jun 26, 2017
    A sudden trip planned in the evening, depart early next morning towards Himachal hills. Will not go to Shimla, can go further ahead, just one night stay. This was the brief plan we had made. A group of 7 (two families) with a dog with one night stay arrangements just left early in the morning from Chandigarh. The drive was nice with no clue of destination. After Kaithlighat we decided to take a turn towards Shoghi and just before main Shoghi town we took a steep narrow road towards village Shungal and Sura. We zeroed in on the first hotel/resort we saw – this was the Oakwood Retreat. Thankfully they allowed pets. A decent sized village resort (this is what they call themselves), you have to park your vehicles on the parking spaces (small area up hill) on the main road and walk down to the reception. We took a family cottage with three rooms and sitting areas. The package is provided on MAP (2 meals – B/F and dinner included). They have a dining hall and not a restaurant – so for lunch you need to pre-order. You don't have any place close by - so if you don't plan to go anywhere - as we did, you would have to eat out there. They have a small swimming pool but no changing rooms near it, so you would either have to walk back to your room or change in the washroom behind the reception area. The reception area has a sitting area and indoor activity area with a pool table and table tennis table. The Dining hall is located right below the reception area. One can also eat in open area in front of the Dining area. They have some activities like burma bridge, rock climbing, rappling etc. which can be enjoyed during your stay. All activities including the use of the pool is on additional payment basis. Our cottage was in one end of the resort. The rooms are on the ground level, and on the top floor probably the owner stayed with a huge dog named Peter. Each room had an attached wash room. Two rooms opened to a balcony which gave you the view of the valley below and mountains above. One room had a window which opened to the farms. The washroom in this room neither had curtains nor had shaded glass window, so you had to hope that no one would watch you. The window in this room didn't close properly and in the afternoon when a dust storm came - the room was filled with dust and leaves etc. Each room had a LCD TV and so did the sitting area or the Living room which had a dining table too. There was only one intercom in the sitting area and that too was non functional (the status was same during our entire stay). Cleanliness was an issue in the cottage - there was a lot of dust on the dining table and other areas (at the time of our check in). The TVs in the rooms were not working (thankfully was rectified). The wash rooms were clean and bedding provided was comfortable. The rooms desperately needed repair and maintenance, wall paper peeling, wall panels damaged and so on. We had all our meals - Breakfast (on reaching as we had reached early), Lunch and Dinner. The food quality wise left a lot to be desired, if you are hungry you have to eat kind. The items were many but lacked in taste. The kids did try the activities there but not the pool. In the evening there was a hailstorm which definitely brought the temperature down. It also forced a power cut and that's when we realized the major issue in the resort - they didn't have power back up in the cottage. Everywhere else but not in the cottage. There were no candles / emergency lights also in the cottage, so we were sitting in pitch darkness. After requesting them multiple times they provided us with candles but by that time the power had resumed. The charge which we paid for a night and the services which were offered were a big mismatch. The owners can do a lot as there is a lot of scope for improvement. First and foremost major maintenance work is required. Inside the cottage we were not getting mobile signals. The drinking water (they said it was RO water) had a very strong smell, we survived on Paid Bottled water. PRO - If you want to run away from the city rush, don't want to be struck up in Shimla this is a decent option. Location wise easier to access compared to Suro Treehouse resort around a kilometer away. Will not like to stay again at the prices we paid for average facilities... More

    Perfect weekend getaway
    on Jun 12, 2017
    It's a small drive from the highway, easily accessible wth sufficient parking. All rooms are valley facing with a fascinating view. Staff is very accommodating and service is excellent. If you want a peaceful weekend wth your spouse or family, this is exactly what you are looking for. Food is great! If you want to go to Shimla, it's a 40 minute drive on a weekend. 6-7 hours drive from Delhi.... More
