With the knocking of the summers here in Delhi, I knew hills will be soon knocking at my Door. It was again Mussoorie where I have been hundreds of times before & still love to return back. I had a stay at this lavishly done up luxurious Fort next to the mall road “Royal Orchid Fort Resort”. It is right in the heart of the town yet away from the hustle bustle. I was stunned to have such a drive in, in the fort structured resort.
Our welcome was with a vermilion & an amazing deluxe room with a balcony was given to us. I liked this walkway which led us to my room.
The entire room was very tastefully done. Besides, the basic necessities in the room, it was more spacious & huge, with high ceilings, giving us a comfort of staying in a palace. The balcony was also quite spacious with a table & two chairs to sit back & relax.
I just loved the view from my room’s balcony. We could also gaze the stars & the Doon Valley which was shining like diamonds at night.
What took all my attending here, were the various shades & colours of greens around me. It was all lush green wherever I looked around.
Me & my mom kept admiring the flora & fauna around us with a cuppa coffee & chatting. Plans were grown in cut-tree trunks. It was a great innovation.
There were some garden swings too, to laze around in the sunlight. The cutest thing which hooked my eyes were the birds houses in the lawns. They were at a height with a pole attached to it.
When we looked at this outstanding amplifier, “Sundeck”, we were told this area is used as a “mandap” during weddings & for parties as a “bonfire” area. This open area is vast & can easily be used for weddings & parties.
After getting ready, we went to the mall road, by a taxi which charged us Rs.100 from the hotel as this service is not provided by the hotel due to strong taxi union. One who is physically fit can easily take a walk from the hotel to the mall road (picture palace) as it is about a km.
After returning back to the Hotel in the evening, we reached to our room, only to find this small surprise awaiting us.
Now, it was dinner time. That night was cold & breezy. We enjoyed our dinner with some lovely singers singing in the dining area. This was like a cherry over the cake.
Their buffet had a great variety laid, to choose from. The resort has one restaurant “Pinxx” which serves multi cuisines for all the taste buds. It is open round the clock with a special menu
“Änytime Menu”. Here, we were served both breakfast & dinner.
Next day, I went for a Spa therapy. The spa area is separate for men & women. I was assisted by a lady called “Baby” who did my therapy. She did a great job by removing all the fatigue I carried with me from Delhi. Her every massage stroke was with the right pressure. It made me realize & forgot the fatigue we carry with us in our everyday life.
“Royal Orchid Fort Resort” also has a small gym for fitness freaks.
One most important & common question which keeps pounding on me from all the “moms” I know-”Where should we stay in Mussoorie which is close to the mall road & also have a kiddies corner?”. It is here!
It has a lot of toys for your little ones to keep them busy. This area is bright & colourful. You can leave your kids to play alone here & have your own time relaxing time.
Not only for your little ones, the resort also offers games like carom-board, badminton etc for the families too, to keep them busy!
I would like to also add, the staff here at “Royal Orchid Fort Resort” are very well mannered and hygienic. They always wear a smile on their faces with an attitude of go-getter and are always willing to help you.
Pack your bags with your loved ones & rejuvenate your holidays in this treasure waiting for you. Carry back loads of good cherishable memories for a life time.
P.S. It was an Invite from “Royal Orchid Fort Resort”, Mussoorie.
