Hyatt opened its 12th Hyatt Regency property in India and first mountain resort property in Himachal Pradesh State earlier in the month. Hyatt Regency Dharamshala Resort sits in a mountainous forest region and provides travelers with a stress-free, immersive getaway.
On top of more than 50 guestrooms, the property also offers 10 Regency Club guestrooms and three suites. Four villas are also available, ranging from one to five bedrooms. Each guestroom offers views of the Himalayas, gardens and forests.
On-site dining is available at the 24-hour restaurant Thym, an elevated, healthful restaurant serving meals created with organic ingredients and fresh items harvest from the hotel’s own gardens. A cozy, modern bar, 2082, offers mountain views in a fireplace-lit, library-like atmosphere. The bar serves tea and snacks during the day. A bakery is also located on the property, serving both baked good and souvenirs.
Immersive experiences available to guests include monk-led yoga sessions, temple meditation sessions, guided photography walks and local tours.
