Welcomhotel, part of the ITC group, has opened a hotel in the beautiful city of Shimla. Welcomhotel’s first property in Himachal Pradesh is an ideal getaway destination for those wanting to reconnect with nature. It is located in the sleepy town of Mashobra, which is half an hour drive from Shimla.
The design of the hotel is modern and has minute elements of the old world charm. The property offers a breathtaking valley view from all its 47 rooms and a 25-hour check-in / check-out (all Welcomhotels give an additional hour to explore more). Aligning with ITC Hotels’ Responsible Luxury philosophy of conservation of resources, all greywater is treated in-house and used for horticulture, non-carcinogenic wooden materials are used around the property and intelligent controls have been built in the elevators to maximize movement efficiency.
There’s WelcomCafe Cedar, an all-day dining restaurant that offers fresh seasonal specialities from the region along with a holistic menu with signature Indian and international dishes; WelcomSthalika, which offers an assortment of popular regional dishes that come laid out on a single platter; and the Swizzle bar that overlooks the coniferous flora and serves great cocktails and wine.
“With domestic travel and wellness experiences regaining popularity, we believe it is the perfect time to launch our latest Welcomhotel outpost in “Devbhoomi” Himachal Pradesh. With stunning 360-degree mountain views and striking architectural and interior design, we aim to attract discerning leisure and business travellers with our heightened safety measures in place and the quintessential Welcomhotel hospitality at the forefront,” said Nakul Anand, Executive Director, ITC Ltd.
