Once the most exclusive hotel in Shimla during the times of the British Raj, the Oberoi Cecil in Shimla oozes classic elegance and colonial charm. This Heritage Grand Hotel has a wonderfully warm atmosphere, with a grand atrium lobby to welcome you, glowing fireplaces to cosy up by and fantastic panoramic mountain views.
The hotel restaurant still resembles the popular ballroom it once was, which hosted dances for its grand clientele. Gaze out on magical views across the Shimla valley whilst feasting on international, pan-Indian and local Himachali dishes. The lounge and bar offers English-style high teas, freshly brewed coffees, premium alcoholic beverages and snacks, along with classical piano each evening, all under a huge skylight.
Relax and unwind in the heated indoor pool, workout in the fitness centre, or treat yourself to a session in the Oberoi Spa. This oasis of calm nestled in the mountainside is exclusive to guests and offers a range of Eastern and Western-influenced treatments.
The lavish rooms at the Oberoi Cecil feature classic furnishings, teak wood floors and garden or valley views. You can also be waited on by your own personal butler offering round the clock service. Rooms feature:
