Wildflower Hall

    Wildflower Hall’s exotic surroundings make the resort’s comforts—butler service and high tea at 4 p.m.—all the more inviting. One of the spa’s new offerings is the two-and-a-half-hour Himalayan Retreat, which includes a body scrub, an Indian head massage (a practice to keep Indian women’s long hair healthy), a full body massage, and a soak in a cedar bath. Accommodations The 83 guest rooms and three suites feature teak floors, freestanding bathtubs, mountain views, and come with the services of a butler. The Lord Kitchener Suite has two bedrooms, with a four-poster bed in the master. Recreation White-water rafting excursions on the Sutlej River. Dining Dine in one of two restaurants or have your butler serve your meals anywhere, anytime. Worthy Diversion Historic sites (Shimla is where the British made the decision to partition India in 1947) and the Mall (the town’s main street) are among the English-speaking city’s attractions. Rates Rooms from $390, suites from $625. Children under the age of 12 are not permitted.
