Shimla-Kufri-Chail-Trip


East Bourne Luxury Hotel Shimla
                 Day 1      Last Thursday took a prestigious Delhi officials group to Shimla and Chail. Caught the Kalka Shatabdi in the morning and reached Shimla by lunch, though slightly late. To kill the hunger pangs on the way, stopped at McDonald Jabli for a burger treat (the sparse Shatabadi bfast does not lasts too long) The new bypass just before Pinjore saves time as it takes you straight to Parwanoo. At Shimla we stayed at the East Bourne, a previous Heritage property, now converted into a modern hotel with lovely rooms, excellent terrace garden restaurant and great food.

Overlooking the Deodar Forests
                    The East Bourne also boasts of a spa, heated swimming pool, bar and lots more. It is about 4 km from the Mall and quiet close to the Shimla bypass, so as we were in a bus we had to get down at bypass and took transfers in smaller vehicles which go directly to the hotel. One of the best thing about East Bourne is it's location which is a little far from the Mall and overlooking the dense Deodar forests and the beautiful green valley, giving you an impression that you are not in the concrete jungles of Shimla but some place else. Shimla had got nice rains recently so everything was so green and clean that it was a treat for the eyes. Monsoon sure is a nice time to visit the hills as it is cooler,cleaner, clearer skies and less crowds. The food too was awesome with a nice variety and good taste in both veg and non veg preparations. The huge Conference hall came very handy to cater to about 100 people for the conference and the evening dinner. People loved sitting in the open air restaurant for lunch and breakfast overlooking the green forest cover. In the evening ee arranged for transfers to the Mall where the guests were dropped at the Lift from where they could go up to the Mall and the Ridge area. The evening cool breeze and the Mall made a nice combination and the guests fully enjoyed it. It was early dinner for most guests as it was a hectic day.
