    I would like some help in finding out what options I have for 5-star hotels in Dehradun. I need advice for some good 5-star hotels. You may be thinking that all 5-star hotels are good, but it's not true, as previously I have had a bad experience at a 5-star hotel when traveling to Jaipur.

    My main concerns are good service and polite staff and a hotel in a good location with some nice views.

    Hello, welcome to the forum!


    Nestled on the foothills of the Himalayan, located on the Doon Valley, is the city of Dehradun. For many, the city is just a gateway to reach the further hill stations of Mussoorie, Landour or Kanatal. For some though, this city cum hill station offers tons of affordable shopping experiences and quirky cafe options. Dehradun itself is home to many staying options, like resorts and hotels, as well as guest houses. Thus, the city is a great stopover on the way to higher hill stations or on the way home from any of these hill stations, providing one with an almost city like atmosphere, with added bonuses of mountain views and scenic natural forest views. However, five-star hotels are not available in the city, the most luxurious hotel options are four-star ones. In this guide, we would highlight the best luxury hotels in Dehradun, showcasing their good points and bad points.

    Luxury Hotels in Dehradun ✰✰✰✰

    1. Vishranti Resort and Spa - Touted as one of the must luxurious nature resorts in the country, the Vishranti Resort and Spa hailed the first spot on this list. Originally, the resort was a private estate owned by Mr. Michael Dalvi, which was then converted into a heritage luxury resort. Enveloped in lush sal forests, set amidst lush organic plantations owned by the management and with views of the distant Himalayas, this resort is not just a simple getaway, it's where you can be closer to nature. The resort even has its own aviary, where guests can enjoy spotting the wide diversity of birds in the region. It is every bit idyllic but also quite adventurous, as guests can embark in nature trails, bicycle tracking, picnics and various activities to keep them occupied. Onto the facade of the resort, it is largely colonial-era style, with a stone-like exterior. The interiors are colonial-era style too, with eccentric lightings and furnitures. The rooms are very lavish, with oversized couches, Kashmiri carpets and Burma teak-framed beds. The bathrooms are spacious, featuring boldly coloured showers and bath tubs. Everything in the resort transports you back into the bygone era. Even the two in-house restaurants cum bars feature the same interiors, namely, the Brigadier's Bar and Holdy's Pub. Both dining areas has this fireplace, yes, an original one, where you can relax and sit around while enjoying the natural warmth of the fire. Equally enticing is a massage at the in-house Rudraksha Tree Spa, whereby all herbs used for the treatments are grown by the management. Other modern facilities like swimming pool, gymnasium, indoor games, outdoor games and a mini golf area are also available in the resort.
