Oberoi Wildflower Hall, Shimla, Himalayas

Standing aloft and aloof on a high pinnacle in the Himalyas, Wildflower Hall is the sort of place that populates legends and, on first sight, makes you wonder if you are actually dreaming. The Hall offers stunning views – in fact, it’s part of a stunning view itself – and is surrounded by dense forest that is a fairy story, winter wonderland in the snow, and a sea of rich green pine and cedar in the summer. Inside, the Hall has been refurbished in a manner that would have met with the approval of Lord Kitchener himself. Wood panelling and original artwork abounds and complements the colonial-style architecture. Teak floors, hand woven carpets and open fireplaces complete the picture.
