Realizing the fact that Shimla is crowded already, Hotels & Resorts are finding more hills around Shimla to house their hospitality projects. This idea is sure to get the tourists flooded in these areas. One such place is Theog which is a mountain village, also chosen by Taj for their premier property. Now, Club Mahindra has also found a place near Taj.

I was close to the Taj location for one of our project-setting-up when I encountered this property which is my prime focus in this article. The property signboard read - Daafi. The Architecture was captivating & could not resist requesting the manager to allow me to go around and take pictures. The property has Vernacular Architecture looks- high stone walls and lined with wooden spars. I even noticed the spars extruding out of walls so as to provide the real Vernacular Architecture looks. Kudos to the Architect & Owner, who hail from Himachal itself, for finalizing such a design. More than the architect it's the owner who has to have such kind of liking.

The property seemed clean & well maintained. The luster of the property was intact, window glasses were clear & transparent. The approach road is narrow & dusty. The frontal of Daafi is outstandingly scenic. Apple orchard in the close proximity and view of crisscrossing mountain ranges make Daafi a good choice to enjoy your holidays.

Staying close to Shimla (not in Shimla) could prove out to be a good decision. Daafi is a property away from Shimla, at Theog where you can unwind and breathe fresh air. While staying here you will be forced to venture into outdoor activities. I am sure you are going to enjoy the stay.
