We have spent an excellent Christmas day at the Snow King retreat in Fagu today. We arrived there by chance because we have been staying in Kufri for a week and were especially avoiding Shimla on Christmas day because of it's infamous crowds. We headed to Fagu, further away from Kufri today afternoon and reached this resort after visiting the potato research farms. The place was decked and lit and warm but almost deserted. We ordered some pakodas and chai, left our napping preschooler with my mother in the restaurant and brisk walked up 300 steps to a famous temple called Deshu temple. Again, there was hardly a soul there, just us, the mountains, tress, chilly winds, some monkeys and of course blessings, because we did feel so blessed to have an entire mountain side almost completely to ourselves. Upon our return we were grateful to find out that the kitchen staff was waiting for us to come back to serve us hot pakodas and chai. The restaurant and the resort are over 20 years old but made of wood and that lends them a lovely warmth. It is overflowing with the owners souvenirs from everywhere and looks homely and welcoming. The staff is polite and accommodating. We spent around 3 hours there, visiting the resort, clicking pics, lounging and finally having our dinner. The food was tasty and the portions huge. We ordered Pahadi chicken with spinach and Dal makhani, both the dishes were flavorful and yummy. The food is very decently priced too. Our drive back down the mountain at night through a dense deodar forest was also beautiful. We highly recommend this place for it's food, ambiance and the drive. The staff and the accommodation too are worth recommending for their welcoming nature and warmth.

This is very old property and at great location. Easily accessible and absolutely peaceful. Considering its old, some maintenance is required. Need more lights in rooms and better amenities. We stayed for 2nights, 1 night in pine cottage and another in villa. Experience of staying in cottage is very nice but again it misses the morden amenities. Villas are lower category than cottage however have more space. Cottage has its own experience however villas are better. View from rooms are amazing. Food is good, but can be much better. Staff is very helpful and courteous, best part of our stay. Overall great experience staying here

Good location Room size is small. Rooms are clean. Staff behaviour is very rude, specially the hotel manager who spoke like he is doing a favour to us by offering a room and didnt show a sign of support.

Room which we had chosen was good and big. Food quality/taste not good. There were a group who were drinking and dancing in restaurant only. we requested them to have our food in rooms but they completely denied. They don't listen to your request even though if you are requesting a genuine thing. Never go in winters especially as you will face service issues. Heaters were available.

Last week on an unplanned trip to Shimla, we reached this paradise called Snow king Retreat,Fagu. The road which lead to the hotel was all covered with snow, initially we were scared but after talking to the staff on phone we drove to the hotel easily. We took a 2 bedroom cottage for 5 of us. Rooms were properly heated and the beds were comfortable with electric bedsheets, which we liked the most. They'd a beautiful revolving restaurent and a cozy bar. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and the service was prompt.Special thanks to Mr Parkash for making our trip so memorable. Highly recommended.
