The architecture of the Radisson Blu Resort, Dharamshala, blends the trendy with the traditional.

If a mountain getaway is what you’re craving, Dharamshala in Himachal Pradesh’s Kangra valley has so much to offer. In the foothills of the Dhauladhar range of the Himalayas, surrounded by fragrant pine forests. Populated by Himachali locals as well as the Tibetan population whose spiritual leader His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama lives in McLeod Ganj (also known as Upper Dharamshala), the place still retains its rustic charm even as it attracts tourists from all over the world.

With the Radisson Blu Resort Dharamshala all set to open there on 15 July, 2021, a comfortable stay with amenities that you can count on is sorted too. The luxurious property owned by the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association enjoys independent access from the Khaniyara road, connected to National Highway 503, and is only 16 km away from Gaggal Airport.

Nine acres, 120 rooms and suites, three F&B options, and a host of activities add up to a holiday destination that promises the perfect mix of comfort, adventure, recreation, and entertainment, all in a setting that’s guaranteed to take your breath away with its untrammelled beauty.

Italian Crust, the pretty pizzeria, radiates a Tuscan patio-like charm.

The pizzeria called Italian Crust, and all-day restaurant The Edge, which serves global cuisine, offer a wide variety of options and special menus for children as well. All Out, their cosy lounge bar does small eats with their selection of wine and spirits.

The Edge is cutting edge when it comes to both, design and menu.

Radisson rooms are all about contemporary comfort. Although the design in this resort does bring in a feel of the fabulous location with pine wood walls or floors across the different categories too. And anyway, no matter whether you’re in a standard room or the presidential suite, the crisp mountain air and swirling mist enter through the windows to whisk you away into a happy Himalayan reverie.

The deluxe rooms have the option of a beautiful view from the balcony.

The gorgeous infinity pool overlooks the valley and the perfect way to relax on a sunny day. And in case you crave more than nature’s best, you’re welcome to step into the resort’s family recreation area, which has a well-stocked library, card room, outdoor kids play section and even a meditation room. A contemporary fitness studio, equipped with state-of-the-art cardio and strength-training equipment, and a well-equipped spa complete the bouquet of experiences you can enjoy at this Radisson Blu resort.
