We travelled in a group of 16 people and stayed there for 3nights. The resort was fantastic. Big rooms with superb furnishings, furnitures, heating arrangements, excellent toileteries and so on. Food served was fantastic. There was snow inside the resort and had lot of fun. Had a day trip to Tehri dam. Everything about the resort was fantastic. Friendly people. etc
A great experience rejuvenating your body, mind & soul. Perfect Getaway from the city life with a drive of around 8 hours from New Delhi. The journey was tiring so we decided to rest and relax for few hours after the lunch. In the evening we enjoyed bonfire and a live musical programme. Good show altogether. And then there was DJ who played some good tracks.
The rooms are very tastefully done and every room has a different interior. The only resort where I could find an operational fireplace in a room.
Day 2, was more adventoures as we started for Surkhanda Devi (a soft trek) after an early morning breakfast and then had a jeep safari which took us deep inside the Jungle. With a group of 15 people it was a good picnic inside the jungle. There was some live cooking and the arrangement was exceptional.
Now a days they say one can even enjoy activities like rock climbing & rapelling, flying fox & valley crossing etc. in the vicinity of the resort.
We had a galla time and now plan to explore the place during the snowfall in winters.
Best Experience: The best experience, I would say is the Day Picnic we had inside the forest and this is one hill resort, which is well managed even at this kind of height (8500 ft').
We visited The Terrace for a weekend on 20th June 2015. It is a Timber Trail property parwanoo is in between Chandigarh and Kasauli, approx. 35 kms from Chandigarh towards Shimla. From Gurgaon It took us 9 hours to reach at the property with 3 major stopover for breakfast, lunch and tea. Breakfast we had at methyl and for lunch we stopped at Jagpreet dhaba awesome food at both the places. They prepared food for kids too as per my requirement. To reach the property you have to travel via cable car. Guests get the preference over other tourists. For guests one time to and fro is free, else charges for the cable car is Rs. 770. 00 per person. We reached at 4:00 pm and at the reception it took them almost an hour to handover us our room keys. The resort is beautifully located and the view from the room is enchanting especially sunset view. Mesmerized with the view when city came to light, all over it was orange with pitch dark background of sky. Parwanoo is at the foothills and main hills starts from there onwards. Since it was peak summer, you can't expect a hill station kind of weather, but the view is definitely like the one. The balconies with the rooms have good seating space with beautiful modern design Jhula to relax and feel the nature. Rooms have large and clean washrooms. In our room the shower has a glass wall without a curtain, opening towards the valley. That presented quite an excitement and challenge to have a simple shower. The resort has maintained indoor and outdoor game area. Kids can enjoy indoor games and daily activities like tambola. There is a descent park and one can go for morning nature walk. Can't really comment on it as I didn't go for walk, I was busy admiring sunrise with a cup of tea in my hand. They have indoor and outdoor restaurant. The spread for breakfast is average but decent enough. However, the bar area is good, in terms of ambience, view and food options. In one of the mornings, thankfully weather took a fold when clouds started passing through the resort. Within minutes sky turned black from bright sunny, with clouds around us. It was one of the most instant change in weather I saw till date. Overall, its a nice place, especially for those who just don't want to do anything apart for relaxation in the lap of nature.
It was by sheer luck that we stopped by at Natal to get a glimpse of the Himalayas. Since there was an abrupt fire down the hill, the smoke almost took away the charm of the beauty, that Himalayas is famous for With dampened spirit we took a u-turn for Mussoorie but something was edging us to find a place where we could get a view for capture. Some higher a place and there my wife saw The Terraces We thought of giving it a go and to our surprise it was the best decision to follow our instinct Such a beautiful property, with such amazing people and top class facilities We enjoyed the whole afternoon as we had our lunch, moved around. There was a disc, a cafe, a bar (which we don't use), the play area, all beautifully done Though we did not stay at this place, but the time spent was worth Overall, a perfect place.
I stayed in the month of May 2013. I booked through online and they provided good drink on arrival. Overall service was good and the hotel owner was very good. The hotel was maintained good and the food was good with good quality and many varieties. The location of the hotel was good but it is in the ideal spacious. They had good activity facility and trucking fishing facility. They had a good library facility and they also have play room. The hotel is forty kilometre away from the city. There was no any delay in check in and out. The room was spacious, neat and clean but not too spacious.
