The Sanctuary- Serenity, peacefulness & the brook

6.1/7
Posted 12 Jun, 2017

SANCTUARY - STERLING RESORT AT Dharamshala. Capt. Clapson Carvalho. May 15th to 21st 2017. Guest Rooms 302 & 304 . . The Sanctuary, a Sterling Holidays Resort in Dharamshala, is on the Nor bowling institute Road. A quiet serene place with a brook, of melting snow from the mountains running behind the resort. The sound of the brook clearly audible at nights, calming the senses. The waters were cold and refreshing enough for a dip. On the front side is the road Our stay at The Sanctuary felt like a home away from home, all because of the extremely friendly nature of all the staff at the Resort. To start with Chef Rajesh, very efficient Chef and very accommodating and friendly too. My son is fond of Chicken Schezwan Fried Rice, but the menu only had Chicken Fried Rice, Rajesh made the Schezwan sauce, so my son could have his favorite dish. F&B Manager Chetan, brings all his rich experience in Goa to his Cocktails and his Mocktails. He was very much restricted because of the non-availability of quite a lot of ingredients required for the Cocktails/Mocktails, very friendly and co-operative. The Restaurant 360C waiters Devraj and Rangeel always cheerful and friendly and made you feel at home. Housekeeping Manager Kamlesh, provided us with plastic chairs when we brought to his notice that the room did not have chairs to sit out in the balconies. His Assistant Ms Poonam too was very friendly and kept asking about our welfare. But the housekeeping staff though friendly again sometimes had to be told to replenish items in the room. The Front Office Incharge too was very friendly and co-operative My wife had two sessions at the Wellness Spa. She was all praises for the lady masseuse Krishna. She had quite a lot of relief from the stiffness in her joints My kids had a good time at the activity centre. The incharge there too was friendly and accommodating. They opted for embossed paintings and rock paintings. Besides they have a badminton court, TT, Carom, Chess, Pool and Air Hockey (the latter 2 being chargeable) One major drawback being the limited room inventory, as a result the Resort is overbooked. Later found out that this is a leased property and that Sterling is in the process of developing its own property closer to the airport which should be ready in a year or two. The second being a Corporate drawback, the menu being very measly. Expected a wide range of dishes on the menu for a Resort of Calibre. The menu was the same in the room and in the restaurant. Usually the restaurant one is more elaborate. Overall the menu (being standard at all the resorts) has to be drastically improved ASAP. Thank you The friendliest staff of The Sanctuary for your good hospitality at Dharamshala Clapson Carvalho and Family

Excellent hotel for spending family holidays

5.6/7
Posted 14 Jan, 2015

The location of hotel is very I stayed twice between long backpacking trips to rest and enjoy some relatively affordable luxury. Rooms are big, comfy and customer service is excellent, they dbeautiful and quiet, and located on the bank of a river, water flow sound can be listen in the river view rooms. It is far from centre of Dharamshala. Room on river side have beautiful view. The room service is very good and staff of hotel are very friendly. We did not use the restaurant, because of the non-veg food. But atmosphere of restaurant looks good and people were enjoying the food. SPA facilities is good Negative Points:-. No adjustment for fan or ventilation in the toilets and bathroom. Toilets and bathroom floor is on same height, due to this floor remain always wet. Few holiday activities are fee only. (Table. Karaoke was not working. Cycling and billiard are chargeable, and charges are very high (Rs 83. 00 for half hour).

Sanctuary was quite enjoyable/comfortable.

5.1/7
Posted 31 Jul, 2013

Our 5-day stay at The Sanctuary was quite. We took the opportunity of our Anniversary to enjoy nature and culture at leisure. The Resort left a good impression on most counts. We also were surprised to learn of some Indian history and Tibetan culture in the Kangra valley . *The Amenities: The basic amenities were as described, except for the Conference Room. Also it looked as if construction was still going on the top floor, as we heard repeated hammering sounds on 25th May. Later we moved to a Room on the First floor, and the disturbance ceased. One observation about the Activity Room at the Basement: An internal access from the lobby to the Activity Hall will be convenient . At present all the guests have to go thru' the parked cars to the Basement *Services Offered: Some maps and tourist literature about Kangra Valley; some details of religious shrines &locations;a few leaflets about Tibetan Culture/ Budh -ism and an Album of Scenic Spots(e. G Lakes, Water Falls, Kangra Fort, Gliding) around Dharamshala, as also about the Neighbouring Sterling resorts (e. G. Manali, jim Corbett Park) will be most welcome . Also a van to visit the Town and McLeodsganj twice a day can be provided for the guests . Above all, the potential of the Resort needs to be understood & conveyed.

Excellent Stay

7.0/7
Posted 18 Nov, 2016

The hotel is suitable for family. The restaurant offers excellent menu. The staff are very helpful. Also I remember the restaurant team was too good. They make awesome dosas and a la chart is also good. One of the day we had been for sightseeing came back around 4 pm and the restaurant closes at 3 in spite of that they went out of the way to prepare hot lunch as I was not well to eat from outside. Every day the housekeeping in charge would make sure that we were comfortable and the chef made it a point to interact to find whether we were happy with the food. Our room was facing the river view. Good place to have a relaxed holiday. We meet with Resort General Manager and he guided us sight seeing for Karmapa Monastery and Norv Lanka Handicraft, my wife really love that. After that we visited McLeodganj and we visited Dalai lama temple and bhagsunag water fall. Once Again Special thanks Mr. Anurag Dhiman and his entire team for their hospitality and we will come back again.

Good location but Small property

5.3/7
Posted 12 Nov, 2014

Dharamshala property of Sterling resorts was a small hotel at a very good location with river on one-side and mountain on the other side. Rooms are average with good river view. We did not like the concept of activity centre on the other side of public road. Restaurant was average and due to low occupancy, does not serve buffet on most of the days in non-vacation period. Service from staff were good and they guided us with local sightseeing .
