Nestled in the foothills of the majestic Himalayas 7,000 feet up, the Oberoi Cecil in Shimla, India, stands at one end of Shimla's main promenade. This hotel has been restored to its original stature, reminiscent of the days of the British Raj. Activities around Shimla include walking or hiking on the mountain or to historical sites, treks in nature reserves, visits to ancient monasteries, trips to colorful markets and short road trips to ski destinations.
The Oberoi Cecil reflects its European heritage with English teas, fine dining and wood burning fires. With a heated indoor pool and panoramic views of the mighty Himalayan ranges, the hotel presents an understated sophistication as exemplified in classic furnishings, parquet flooring, roaring fireplaces, Persian carpets and rich fabrics. The lobby lounge and atrium bar's relaxing ambience and hotel's classic charm are enhanced by the changing light of the mountains.

For rejuvenating, the hotel features a spa, whirlpool baths, and indoor heated pool with mountain views. Visitors enjoying billiards, board games and bridge are found throughout the hotel, before dining on Asian and European cuisine in the hotel's restaurant, which exudes an old-world ambience accented by wood paneling and chandeliers.

Other amenities include on-site car rentals, a business center, banquet facilities, conference rooms, and Internet access in public areas. Parents traveling with kids can arrange babysitting and child care. Children can enjoy an activity center stocked with games, computers and toys.

The hotel's 79 air-conditioned guestrooms feature Burma teakwood flooring, satellite television, VCRs, Internet access, minibars, bathrobes and safes.

Built in 1887, the Oberoi Cecil is a perfect base from which to explore spectacular mountain scenery, cedar forests, ancient monasteries and ski slopes.
