JW Marriott Mussoorie Walnut Grove Resort & Spa has a unique location, not too far from the populated areas, yet seemingly within touching distance of pine forests

Are you impressed already? I was! However, the master stroke of the Mar­riott Walnut Grove’s palette is The Den. Parents with young children will be absolutely delighted with this entertain­ment centre and kids’ club spread over a dizzying 12,000 sq feet. This incredible space houses a two-lane bowling alley, a billiards table, gaming consoles and a very well stocked library where they plan to hold reading sessions for kids. I haven’t seen this much attention paid to a kids’ area in any hotel, and surely this would be a major draw for families plan­ning a royal reunion.

The hotel also has one of the largest meeting spaces in the city, with the Grand Orchard Ballroom living up to its name. It features as a spacious pre-function area for a wedding or a cocktail gathering, with three adjoining rooms. A dedicated and experienced events team is in place to coordinate off-site programmes or conferences, likely to become a big part of the agenda over years to come.


The Viceroy may not be in residence, but the holiday season should be in full swing — summer or winter — at the JW Marriott Mussoorie.
