Bless yourself with the scenic view of the mighty and beautiful Dhauladar range by heading to Dharamshala. It's a city full of culture, cedar forests, beautiful temples and monuments, and even more beautiful people.
If you're looking for a place to stay at, check out the new Hyatt Regency property here. From their hospitality to food, and even the location, everything will ensure that you have an awesome stay, and can enjoy Dharamshala (and Kangra) in the best possible way.
Located almost 19 kms away from the Kangra (Gaggal) airport, the route to Hyatt Regency, Dharamshala is absolutely beautiful. A big shout out (and thanks) to the hospitality staff as you're welcomed with a cup of local infused tea (Anandini - Himalaya Tea).
Hyatt Regency Dharamshala Resort has 80 guestrooms, including 10 Regency Club guest rooms and three suites. The guestroom I stayed in was spacious and had a balcony with a view of cedarwood trees and the snow-capped Dhauladar mountains. I absolutely loved their bathrooms, which had a really cool (and huge) mirror, and no matter how hot a shower you're taking, these mirrors NEVER get foggy. The rooms are also well-equipped with modern amenities, so you won't have to worry about anything at all.
The resort also features four deluxe villas, ranging from one to five-bedroom properties. So, if you're traveling in a bigger group, you can check out their private properties. The tariff starts at around INR 13,000 per night and can go up to INR 48,000 per night for a two-bedroom residence that has a living area, dining area, a functional kitchen, smart TVs, a minibar, and a lot of other stuff, including a butler service!
However, my favourite thing about Hyatt Dharamshala is that no matter what room you choose, you will definitely be blessed with a beautiful sunrise and a sunset. And trust me, Dharamshala sunsets are to die for!
The hotel also has a thoughtfully-designed bar and restaurant called Thym. It's open 24-hours and features a delightful range of dishes prepared with fresh, organic ingredients from the hotel’s herb garden. If you're in the mood to drink some of the finest alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, you can head to 2082, which is a modern, cosy bar with a fireplace and a library. Fun fact - the bar gets its name from its location which is 2,082 meters above sea level.
You should also check out their signature bakery - McLeod & Co. which offers sweet and savoury items along with retail essentials and regional souvenirs like tea.
If you're seeking rest and recreation, Hyatt Regency will be more than happy to conduct yoga sessions, meditation sessions, photo walks, tours to local attractions including the tea gardens and sunset points. To unwind after a long day of touring the city, guests can head to the Shanti Spa for a relaxing massage therapy. For families traveling with kids, the resort offers Camp Hyatt, a space designed for children to enjoy games and fun activities like pottery sessions.
