The Oberoi Group recreates an 'Indian Summer. By Oberoi'

Award winning Oberoi Hotels & Resorts introduces their ‘Indian Summer. By Oberoi’ package to celebrate the current airing of Channel 4’s, ‘Indian Summers’, on Sundays at 9pm.  The new 10 part-period drama focuses on the final days of British colonial rule in India and is set against the grandeur of Shimla in the Himalayas – the former Summer Capital of the British Raj.

The ‘Indian Summer. By Oberoi’ package offers a minimum stay of four nights including two nights each at The Oberoi, New Delhi and The Oberoi Cecil, Shimla at the cost of 160 GBP, per night, including breakfast for two and a 25% discount on spa therapies.  The guest can also opt to stay at Wildflower Hall, Shimla in the Himalayas instead of The Oberoi Cecil, Shimla at an additional supplement of 75 GBP / 7,000 INR, per night for accommodation in a Deluxe Garden View Room.

The Oberoi Group’s properties are deeply rooted in Shimla’s local history.  Guests staying at either The Oberoi Cecil on Mall Road, or Wildflower Hall, Shimla in the Himalayas located 8,250 feet at the foothills of the Himalayas, can recreate an age of bye-gone glamour and enjoy personalised destination experiences. Once famed as Shimla’s social epicentre for balls and fashionable clientele on the Mall Road, The Oberoi Cecil, Shimla continues to exude colonial charm 130 years on.  Enjoy quintessentially English afternoon teas, fine dining at night, log fires and panoramic views of the Shimla valley.  The hotel is ideally located to explore the old colonial architecture and landmarks, accompanied by an expert historian.  Guests can board the UNESCO’s world heritage ‘toy train’ and ride to Taradevi or venture into the nearby Shimla valley, which reveals mystical mountains and pine forests.

The former residence of Lord Kitchener, Wildflower Hall, Shimla in the Himalayas has been rebuilt to evoke the grand style of the colonial era.  Marvel at the spectacular mountain vistas from an open-air Jacuzzi and experience exclusive massages, yoga and Ayurvedic treatments at bespoke locations around the resort and grounds.  The more intrepid can explore the resort’s private estate of 23 acres of cedar and pine forests, or delve deeper into Shimla’s colonial history with a picnic at The Peak – a bungalow built in 1863, which served as a weekend retreat to many a Viceroy including Lord Ripon and Lord Lytton.  Guests of Wildflower Hall, Shimla in the Himalayas will have exclusive access to 10 acres of apple orchards and lawn, enjoying spectacular hilltop views of the surrounding countryside.

A combination of pristine mountain air, architectural splendour and the legendary Oberoi service will make for an unforgettable ‘Indian Summer’.
