Star-Rating-5   Official rating
Star-Rating-4-5   Distant Journeys rating

Shimla’s heritage as the summer capital during the days of the British Raj is seen in its many fine examples of Victorian architecture, including the famous Vice Regal Lodge, the former summer residence of the Viceroy of India. A short walk away is The Oberoi Cecil; a Shimla landmark that exudes colonial charm and classic elegance unchanged throughout its long history.

A warm welcome awaits as you enter the grand atrium lobby, with its rich Burma teak floors, glowing fireplaces and stunning mountain views. The Oberoi Cecil’s rooms are beautifully furnished with wooden floors and Indian rugs and are equipped with a satellite TV and DVD player, free WiFi and en suite bathroom with shower.

The hotel’s private Oberoi Spa offers a range of Eastern influenced therapies including their signature Oberoi massage, perfect for soothing away any travel-weariness while drinking in the beautiful views across the Shimla valley. There’s also a heated indoor swimming pool to enjoy.
Dining options

Formerly the hotel’s ballroom, The Restaurant is open for all-day dining in grand style and serves everything from continental breakfast to Pan-Asian delicacies and speciality Himachali dishes from the local area. The Lounge & Bar is located in the atrium lobby, and is the place to go for morning coffee, a traditional afternoon tea, a pre-dinner aperitif or a nightcap. A classical pianist plays each evening, adding to the elegant ambience of The Oberoi Cecil.
