When you take a walk in the queen of hills, all you want to embrace is the cold wind kissing your cheeks and brushing your hair but well, we went during peak of summer and this is not what we experienced. :/
When we touched Dehradun, the car from Jaypee Residency Manor, was waiting for us with fresh sandwich’s and water and I must tell you, it made us smile. As the moment you land and rather than a cool breeze a hot wave touches you, it’s so not a good feeling!
The cordial staff at Jaypee Mussoorie, welcomed us with warm attitude and ushered us to our room which was heavenly spacious and moreover we had a private garden shared by other suite rooms.
Later, as we were too tired to go anywhere though they they provide shuttle service to mall road but when the property itself is spread over 9 acres of lush green hill top, we hardly found a chance to go out and as we are born foodie, we ordered for in room dining. When it comes to dal makhani and red sauce pasta, this is where your footsteps should lead you to. Not just the pasta but even our caeser salad made our tongue roll and without even a second thought, we were left famished.
Relaxing in our pretty room and getting stuffed by the scrumptious food we literally lost our track on time but a stroll in our private garden during the sunset did not make us regret any thing in this world. Later on we had our dinner at Marshal Lounge in Jaypee Residency Manor, Mussoorie. Though how much I loved Italian and Mughlai there, Chinese failed to satiate my tastebuds but you can get some awesome sauce Pasta and North Indian food here.
Jaypee Residency Manor also arranges for your small treks if you ask, and luckily we got an opportunity to track down to Lal Tibba, a view point that’s above Landour. We trekked, walked and rejuvenated by inhaling the fresh and cold mountain breeze. Amongst the trek we found quite a few spots that made us stop and cherish the beauty of the nature.
When we came back from our refreshing trek without even a second thought we headed for our breakfast at the hotel. Well, I must say that we have had brunch in various hotels, cafes and restaurants but Jaypee Residency Manor had a good amount of Indian options and our favourite Chola Bhaturas tasted so good. Best thing being, the bhaturas were made on a live counter so every time you ordered one, you got a fresh one served on your plate.
Also when we were exploring the property and having one on one with the manager of Jaypee Mussoorie, we realised how beautiful this place can be to host a wedding. They have that cute corners where you can have your dream wedding pictures, moreover the separate areas for the wedding just makes the whole thing too perfect. You know when you have that small bunch of people whom you genuinely want to treat for your wedding but are not able to find a The wedding destination place, then you must check it. As it’s a huge property accompanying a great view, we felt it can also be one of those destinations that not only would be viable for small groups but even for larger. We did witness a party gathering going on, and windy breeze on mountains, with booze and favourite DJ just made the atmosphere too perfect.

Following that day, we went to lunch in their new wing which have Cafe Manor. Have you seen those dreamy cafes where you can sit for long hours and look at the mountains while sipping your coffee? This is one of those places. We had Bombay Sandwich and it is something you should definitely try if you are here and second in the line was their wood fired Mediterranean Pizza which had all the veggies and a homemade thin crust base, well it was so mouthwatering that we even got it packed when we were heading back to Delhi!
Also, do you know they have this separate area on the terrace where you can have candle light dinner or do a separate/small party, though it comes with a price but then it’s a private space with a personal dining experience and they call it Celebrations! We had a lovely experience dining there when we ventured into some of the chef specialities starting from Tandoori Kebab Platter, Makhmalai Kofta (I loved the curry) and their very own Warq Naan (This naan was the star of the night, literally!). PS: They have some great wines too. 😉
In addition to the leisure activities at Jaypee Residency Manor, Mussoorie they have a terrace Chess, Ludo, air hockey, pool table, video games, balling alley, all of which we really wanted to invest our time in but due to shortage of time could only playing around their big chess!
Also later that day we went to Jharipani Falls that was near out resort and if you are coming to Mussoorie and you don’t visit here, you are missing onto something very big. It’s not your usual kempty fall but something bigger and better. You will hardly find people here as it’s hard to trek on with all that crossing and jumping from 6ft but it’s worth the effort!
Our stay at Jaypee Residency Manor, Mussoorie was a total delight and I guess, I have found a place on the hills where I can come back again and yet again.
