JW Marriott is currently expanding in many countries around the globe. One of the most amazing openings of the last year is the JW Marriott Mussooire Walnut Grove Resort in India. Located in an area where civilization is dozens of kilometers away, the resort offers an intimate and calm atmosphere and great views on the Himalaya.
Luxury resorts in very special landscapes are also something unique. The JW Marriott Mussooire Walnut Grove Resort definitely is unique as well. When international travelers think of India, they usually think of large crowds, cities with a lot of hustle and at times maybe also about pollution.
The JW Marriott Mussooire is the complete opposite of all these prejudices. Located in the calm and natural Himalaya area, a little bit tough to reach for international travelers, it’s a real oasis that’s perfect for some days off.
JW Marriott luxury hotels usually are large and may house hundreds of guests at the same time. The JW Marriott Mussooire is something completely else with just 105 rooms.
All got great views of the valley or the lush green around the hotel. Each room got a size of at least 37 square meters (410 square feet) and got features like a balcony, air-conditioning and a large modern bathroom.
The Valley View Rooms are the second lowest room category, however already offering great views of the beautiful valley. Typical for natural resorts, the suites of the hotel got a nice, but not unreasonable size.
Studio Suites at the JW Marriott Mussooire Walnut Grove got 54 square meters (600 square feet) while Executive Suites got 74 square meters (820 square feet) and a seduced living area.
Many options for stylish dining
The JW Marriott Mussooire is pretty different to the also newly opened JW Marriott Mumbai Sahar in regard of dining options.
With six different dining outlets in total, the JW Marriott Mussooirse Walnut Grove Resort has real resort character. Guests can enjoy breakfast at the JW Café, the all-day-dining outlet of the JW Marriott.
For lunch, there are two other options: Wisteria Deck is an Italian restaurant offering pizza and more Mediterranean cuisine while the Pool Bar offers light dishes from all around the world.
Afterwards, guests of the JW Marriott Mussooire Walnut Grove Resort may enjoy an Afternoon Tea at Perch, the perfect choice for a great cup of tea with views of the Himalaya. For dinner, guests can choose between the JW Café (International cuisine), the Trout House Grill & Bar (Indian cuisine) and “Teppan” (Asian cuisine).
Staying at the JW Marriott Mussooire Walnut Grove does not only mean great dining and luxurious rooms, but also relaxation. Therefore, guests can enjoy the large indoor pool that is offering brilliant views of the Himalaya.
Like the views out of many rooms, the pool area of the JW Marriott Mussooire Walnut Grove may offer the best views of the Himalaya that many travelers have ever seen. Another great feature is the Spa that is offering massages and all kinds of other treatments, also with great views of the mountains or the lush green around the hotel.
However, also a more active lifestyle may be lived while staying at the JW Marriott in the Himalaya. Hiking in the mountains, working out in the gym or guided tours through the Himalaya add even more value to a stay at the JW Marriott Mussooirse Walnut Grove.
In its early days, the JW Marriott Mussooire Walnut Grove Resort got many positive reviews. That may encourage many more travelers to spend a night at the lovely mountain resort in the Himalaya. Room rates for Marriott’s newest pearl in the Himalaya start at 12.500 INR (~ 180 Euro / 200 US-Dollar) excluding taxes on selected dates. Be aware that the rates for rooms may be higher on several dates due to the high occupancy the hotel got since its opening.
Rooms with a view of the valley are available starting from 14.500 INR (~ 210 Euro / 230 US-Dollar). Rates with breakfast usually cost 1.000 INR more per night (~ 15 Euro / 16 US-Dollar). Even though the room rates are relatively high compared to other luxury hotels in India, the JW Marriott Mussooire Walnut Grove Resort should be on everyone’s itinerary. All around the world, there are just a bunch of hotels that offer views that are that amazing as the ones at the JW Marriott Mussooire.
