5 Ho Ho Ho-tels for a Magical Christmas Vacation!

There’s a new swing in your step, the air is suddenly smelling sweeter and you catch yourself smiling for no reason..no, it’s not love and no, you aren’t sick either. It’s December and it’s time for the number one thing we ALL think of when it comes to December — Christmas!

While we cannot go to the North Pole, there are some hotels that are located in locations that look straight out of our Narnia-fuelled imaginations!

No seriously, one look at these postcard-perfect properties and you’ll be imagining Santa casually walking out of them, preferably with Rudolph at his heels. Don’t believe us? See for yourself:

The Khyber Himalayan Resort & Spa, Gulmarg


The untouched, heavenly beauty of Kashmir is enough to mesmerize anyone, but if you’re going in December, you MUST stay at this iconic property as it looks straight up like a winter wonderland! All modern amenities are to be found here, but what truly seals the deal is the uninterrupted views of the Affarwat peaks of the Pir Panjal Mountain Range in the Himalayas.

Book Your Stay

Wildflower Hall, Shimla


Okay, so maybe not all hotels will give you Narnia vibes..because some, like the Wildflower Hall, will give you Hogwarts vibes instead! 😀 Perched atop a hill, this gorgeous property is the very picture of luxurious tranquility. Take a refreshing walk on their garden trails, or admire the mountains from the posh, mountain-view rooms—you’re bound to have a magical experience! 

Book Your Stay

Solang Valley Resort, Manali


Ready to sleigh? 😀 Solang Valley Resort, located on the banks of river Beas, has the foreground of Beas Kund glacier and the Dhauladhar range. You can certainly have a very merry Christmas here by making the most of the snow-clad ranges while skiing, snow-tubing and snow scooting.

Book Your Stay

Cliff Top Club, Auli


December and January mark the best seasons to visit Auli, the skiing haven of Uttarakhand, and one glance at this property makes it clear why: located in the Garhwal Himalayas, this adventure resort offers a clear view of the Nanda Devi, Dronagiri, Kamet, Trishul, Neelkanth and Mukut ranges. Granted it is located at an altitude of 10,000 feet, but the joys of heli-skiing and cross-country skiing more than make up for the long drive.

Book Your Stay

Soulitude in the Himalayas, Ramgarh


With 12 fine rooms constructed faaaaar away from the hustle and bustle of Nainital, this tasteful homestay is where you should be headed to if a peaceful and private celebration is what you’re looking for this Christmas! The heavy and unpolluted snowfall that this place receives is a view to behold! (But then doesn’t the picture speak for itself?)

Have a Merry (and safe) Christmas, ya’ll!
