Oakwood Hamlet Lodge



Location: Oakwood Hamlet remains an oasis of tranquility in the heart of Himachal Pradesh. Just 20 Kms before Shimla and at an altitude of 5900 ft, It is a beautiful private hide-away open to guests throughout the year; a place of total peace, where you can experience the warm, generous and gentle hospitality which Himachali people love to offer.

About: Oakwood Hamlet is set on the lines of traditional working village cradled on the one side by mountains and Oak Forest, and on the other by tiny village with terraced fields. Our focus, at present, is on the restoration of an ageless agricultural way of life including bio-diverse organic farming and reforestation of the land and its immediate surroundings.

Guests are welcome to Oakwood Hamlet and those who come will find a natural sanctuary of exceptional mountain beauty where the main activity is simply relaxing in its remarkable atmosphere of peace and calm.

Accommodation: Oakwood Hamlet features a mix of four village style (wattle and daub) mud cottages, Four single bedroom bamboo huts, four luxury tents , and striking open Thatch dinning overlooking the valley. All laid out in a whimsical and intriguing mix of the traditional and the new. The food is generous and delicious local fare and the staff is graciously hospitable and unobtrusive.

Our Cuisine
It is our desire to use only regional and fresh foods from local markets. All dishes are carefully balanced and prepared with love and dedication. Our cuisine offers a fine selection of light and tasty dishes.

There is no menu at the Oakwood Hamlet. Every evening a different dinner and ever morning a delicious breakfast is prepared. Let us surprise you with all the different treats our kitchen has to offer! The choice of meals is always in accordance with the requirements of our guests. With this concept our guests are "liberated" from the usual decision making that accompanies our normal lives.

The main attraction at Oakwood Hamlet is the rare opportunity to see wild pheasants in their natural habitat. You can go out in the early hours of the morning, as the improbably calm forest under the gently rising sun, to search for playful pheasants.

Adventure sports on offer include Rappelling, catwalk, hiking, simulated river crossing and overnight camping.

For those who wish to explore the land around them, a visit can be made to the summer capital of Shimla or Chail. These vibrant towns provide an interesting mix of historical buildings from its eventful colonial past apart from modern day shopping options.
