Sterling Shivalik Chail is a charming boutique mountain retreat consisting of 32 rooms, situated 24 kilometers from Shimla.
The rooms, which feature contemporary décor, are crafted from deodar and pine wood to reflect the local architecture and also features seesham and walnut wood for style. The highlight of each room is the private sit-out that provides guests with a stunning vista of the picturesque Shivalik valley, which is home to a lush array of deodar and pine trees.
Chail, once the summer capital of Patiala, is a hill station that is easily accessible and enjoys pleasant weather all year round. Visitors can engage in a variety of exciting experiences, such as a tour of the Chail Palace, a popular location for shooting Indian movies; relaxing by the pristine Sadhupul Lake; exploring the alluring hiking trails in the vicinity; catching a glimpse of flying squirrels at the Chail Wildlife Sanctuary, or marveling at the breathtaking panoramic view of the snow-capped Himalayan ranges at Kali ka Tibba.
Guests of the resort can indulge in the unique flavours of ‘Pahari’ and Himachali cuisine at ‘Tibba’, the on-site restaurant.
The hotel also offers unique curated experiences, such as the ‘Pahari Village Tour’ where guests can immerse themselves in Himachali culture by observing traditional village houses, chatting with locals, sampling local cuisine, learning about farming, and even participating in apple harvesting, including the picking of fresh apples with local farmers during the season.
Speaking on the inauguration of the property, Vikram Lalvani, Managing Director and CEO of Sterling Holiday Resorts, said, “Holiday seekers prefer the mountains to beat the heat, and in line with this demand, Sterling has a strong portfolio of 18 mountain resorts in both popular and new-age destinations.”
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Shriram Thakur, owner of the resort said, “I am thrilled to include Shivalik Chail in the Sterling bouquet of resorts. Sterling has the reputation of taking unexplored destinations and making them popular using their strong network and operational resources. I am sure they will make Chail a prominent destination on the tourism map of the country.”
