The Indian Hotels Company Limited has expanded the Taj brand in the Indian State of Himachal Pradesh with the opening of Taj Theog Resort & Spa, Shimla. Positioned amid thick cedar forests and spread over two hectares, every nook and corner of the hotel offers mesmerising views of the mighty Himalayas.
Taj Theog Resort & Spa is the first mountain resort for the brand, and its design and architecture echoes colonial charm reminiscent of hill station appeal. Surrounded by deodar forest, with pathways through apple orchards and terraced gardens, the resort is the quintessential luxurious home in the hills. Each of the 99 rooms, with warm wooden furniture, traditional rugs and tall French windows, offers spacious balconies overlooking snow peaks and quaint villages.
The hotel is conveniently located a comfortable drive from the two key cities of Shimla and Chandigarh.
“Taj Theog Resort & Spa is a sanctuary amidst conifers, cedars and tiny hamlets with the stunning skyline of the Himalayan range as a backdrop. It serves as an ideal location for guests seeking a mix of adventure and relaxation coupled with Taj’s legendary service,” said Naveen Barthwal, GM Taj Theog Resort & Spa, Shimla.
Guests have a choice of culinary options that includes an all-day diner – Tragopan – that serves the robust Pahari cuisine along with global cuisines and comfort food, and Peony, the oriental restaurant offering Sichuan and Cantonese cuisines. Theog Junction, the pub, is an imaginative tribute to the classic narrow-gauge toy train that chugs from Kalka to Shimla.
The resort also houses an expansive Jiva Spa, Taj’s award-winning spa brand that is deeply rooted in India’s rich heritage of wellness; a temperature-controlled pool with a sun deck and curated local experiences to ensure a memorable stay.
