We stayed there from 19th March to 23rd March ( 3 adults one child and one infant). It was by far the best hill station holiday we've had so far.

The resort is made keeping one thing in mind , that is ' we need to connect with each other.' The term family time really meant that.

The rooms are well appointed and clean . Beautifully done up. Great views. We stayed in the family room, which has two interconnecting rooms and a living area, so it was great for the kids to run about

The weather was unreal, coming from Bombay we really enjoyed the 11-17degrees climate. Cool clean and crisp air.

Food is also great. The chef takes care of all your requests. They have amazing local food nights, Himachali dham.

Outdoor activities, trekking, tent pitching, wall climbing, going to the near by streams and drinking fresh running water, are few things offered at rakkh and something we city dwellers long for.

They also have a great spa with very affordable prices.

We visited Dharamshala, McLeod Ganj and dharamkot . Ate the amazing carrot cake at the Trek and dine cafe and also got blessings from the Dalai Lama.

A special thanks to Rajat ( the owner of rakkh), moka the main man at rakkh who took care of everything, the head chef and his entire FNB team our trekking guide Sandeep and ofcourse Talli and Tina the most lovable dogs.

Highly recommended!!

Dear Abhir,

Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are so glad you had a memorable stay and enjoyed everything Rakkh has to offer. Activities make you spend time together as a family, go outdoors, get close to the nature and feel every bit it has to offer. We would definitely love to have you back with us whenever you wish.

Thanks again. Take care.

Best Wishes
Rakkh Team

In short, I did not spend enough time at this place to justify what this place has to offer. I would definitely come back. 3 night minimum is my recommendation but one can easily spend upto 7 nights here.
From the moment you enter the resort, you see a beautiful setting with a backdrop of Dhauladhar range. The staff is extremely courteous and makes you feel very special. The food was amazing with lot of options. Very calm and peaceful atmosphere. I would definitely recommend the mountain cottages for a better view, even though hill side cottages are a little more secluded and have a fire pit. The chef is very accommodating in case you have certain dietary restrictions. The attention to detail at this place is spot on!
The best thing about this place? They insist that you disconnect from the outer world, experience all the activities inside and outside the resort, and be hands -on.
PS: Thank you Moka for your amazing hospitality!

Room Tip: Mountain cottage for views, hill cottage for a little more seclusion and a fire pit.

Dear Rajat,

Thank you for such a lovely and detailed review. We clearly remember it was a quick getaway for you both post marriage and ceremonies that follow after. We are glad that you loved everything and spent quality time together.

However, next time you are not getting away with just one activity. As we always insist disconnect from the digital life and cultivate relationships offline, so people can enjoy small things which are most valuable, like talking and bonding with each other (unlike online).

Thanks again for the kind words. See you soon. Take care.

Best Wishes
Rakkh Team

Being at the foot of the Himalayas it is needless to mention the amazing nature around the Resort.
The heart of this place is the staff working here. They made sure whatever we needed at whatever time we had it. The kitchen is amazing, the programs are really charming. I would go back gladly anytime.

Room Tip: rooms from nr 7 up have hill views

Dear Lici,

Thank you so much for the lovely review. Actually we undermined you for your physical activity skills but to our surprise you crossed our expectations. Next time we would like you to compete for the Rakkh challenge.

Dhaam has the authenticity and Sufi singing has its own charm, and we are glad you enjoyed it. I have passed on your kind words to the whole team.

It was pleasure spending time with you, and now look forward to see you again soon. Take care.

Best Wishes

Its very good resort for honeymoon couples, but not for families..food, staff, rooms , everything is excellent. Scenic beauty is average. Its little bit expensive as we saw the facilities. Self help counters for preparing maggi & eggs is very good idea.

Dear Munish,

Thank you so much for your review. We are glad that you liked the concept of self help counters of maggi, juice and tea which are the new addition to engage guests in several activities.

I remember you went for cycling and hiking during your stay with us and was offered other activities such as wall climbing and games for kids. It was unfortunate that you couldn't enjoy all the activities; going onward we will proactively engage guests in more activities which a family can enjoy with kids (also, we are adding more activities for kids).

Talking about scenic beauty; It changes with the change in weather, season, temperature, also we cannot change nature to suit our eyes. Rakkh has its own beauty and I hope you'll see it when you are here next time, and like its said "we cannot challenge nature, we can only compromise with it". (Believe me, it's better than the metro cities where people are complaining to get fresh air).

Thanks again. Please give us a chance to host you again and we will show you the difference. Take care.

Best Wishes
Rakkh Team

If you are in search of a real off beat , less explored destinations somewhere tucked away in the mountains your search ends here at RAKKH.Beautiful visuals of snow covered mountains,rich natural beauty, beautiful Buddhist Monastaries,flowing rivulets,stunning landscape combined with the best comforts makes this place an ideal location to spend some days of your life rejuvenating and connecting with nature.
Besides nature lovers and holiday seekers, Rakkh provides activities for the adventure buffs (adults and kids) who come here to indulge themselves in mountain biking ,trekking ,rock climbing and nature walks .
Set with the backdrop of breath taking Dhauladhar Himalayan range, the cottages are spacious ,beautifully designed with luxurious 5 star facilities and each with a sit out opening into the stunning Kangra valley.
The staff at Rakkh is extremely hospitable, courteous and helpful .And would go out of the way to make the guests feel comfortable.
The kitchen at Rakkh serves delectable food with some Himachali cuisine specialities like Dham.
Driven by warmth and hospitality Rakkh makes a perfect and one of the best laid back destinations to visit .
A big 'Thankyou' to Rakkh and the staff for it has been our most amazing experiential holiday !I highly recommend the destination for a stay with family and friends.
