HOTEL SNOW VALLEY
Shimla, Himachal Pradesh
Surrounded by panoramic views of the majestic mountains and age-old pine trees, overlooking the town of Shimla are the Snow Valley Resorts located on NH-22 at Kachhi Ghate, one of the top holiday accommodations in the Shimla region. Set in a mountain village, the hotel is 13 km from Jakhoo, an ancient Hindu temple, and 8 km from shopping on Mall Road.
The design has been conceptualised on the themes of comfort and leisure. The lavish interiors and the alluring outdoor spaces are a testament to the same. Design solutions are offered by the site topography itself. The contoured site has been utilised to its maximum by the play-in levels of built blocks. The facade is adorned with slate cladding along with wooden tiles complemented with glass windows extending to the pitch of the roof.
Located on a steep hillside the design is formulated with reception and parking on the top floor and rooms on subsequent lower floors. The unique attic-styled reception with pale wooden flooring, exposed wooden rafters and large glass windows, gives the reminiscence of a vintage European hotel. The resort consists of 72 rooms and suites spread across two blocks, having local design touches with rich colours, wooden floors, plush furnishings and stunning views.
The restaurant on the ground floor of the main block flows into a spill-out space (also the terrace of the second block) - caricatured as a common relaxation spot and seating area for both buildings. The second block- residing further down the hill, houses the spa, gym and conference room on separate floors enjoying an unhindered sight of the cityscape. The double-height banquet hall on the attic floor is characterized by wooden flooring, colonial furniture and elongated dormer windows.
The comfortable and elegant interiors delving in lush splendour combined with the spectacular view of the mountains offer the perfect blend for a memorable holiday delight!!
