Winding roads, lush greenery, tall mountains with snowy peaks, crisp winter air and the feeling of oneness with nature is what makes Mussoorie the queen of the hills.
JW Marriott Mussoorie Walnut Grove Resort and Spa tucked way in Tehri Garhwal on Kempty Falls road is the perfect wellness retreat to relax and rejuvenate your mind, body and soul.
A remarkable property spread over a wide area, once you enter, you’re welcomed in true Garhwali style with an aarti, tikka and a traditional stole. Whether it’s the magnificent lobby that’s elegantly designed to make you feel like royalty or the stunningly beautiful rooms with private terraces or the spectacular spa, this wellness resort will make you want to never leave.
We stayed at one of their Deluxe rooms that were perfectly comfortable and cosy. Overlooking the mountains with its own porch and extremely spacious bathroom this made our experience even more remarkable. The room service and the staff were impeccable.
While you’re at JW Mussoorie you always have plenty of activities you can undertake. Embark on one of their guided tours around the massive property or hop on to a golf cart as you experience the traditional ‘Kachdi’ (local word for gatherings over Tea) over chai, snacks and live music in the JW lawns or stop for a game of golf at their golf course. Kids can also enjoy movies every evening in their open amphitheatre.
Experience ultimate luxury in the lap of the Himalayas as you take in the charismatic surroundings and craft-fully done interiors that take you back to the British Era. The well spread out lawns lead up to JW farms where some of the ingredients are grown fresh for you.
More than anything, JW Mussoorie offers sensational dining experiences that will leave you spellbound. With 5 distinct restaurants and even more special private dining experiences like breakfast by the stream, the food here will tantalise your taste buds and senses.
Indulge in a hearty breakfast by the mountains at JW Café, their all-day dining multi-cuisine restaurant or experience Asian fine dining with live teppanyaki grills at Teppan. Bite into a freshly baked pizza at Wisteria Deck or enjoy beautiful Indian food at Trout House Bar and Grill that comes with private bonfires & live music too.
If you’re looking for something even more special the talented team at JW Mussoorie can arrange for a private dining experience in their greenhouse where a table is impeccably set just for you as your palette is nourished with a bespoke menu made with the finest of fresh ingredients. Surrounded by this lush greenery and delicious food, this makes for an unforgettable experience.
Walk around the property or play a game of pool at their humungous game centre. Take a dip in their temperature controlled indoor pool or pamper yourself at their full-service spa. They also have a beautiful porch overlooking the Himalayas.
The Cedar Spa by L’Occitane blends together traditional European techniques and local, Himalayan oils to revitalise and reinvigorate your senses. The Shea fabulous face and body massage uses essential shea butter and oil with Balinese & Swedish technique to soothe your tired muscles. At the end of the treatment, your skin is glowing and you feel completely rejuvenated.
We also loved their signature cedar wood massage that helps to create a balance between your mind and soul.
From the food to the hospitality to the people, this property is perfect for an escape to the hills whether you’re here with family or friends. We had an unforgettable experience here.
