JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts has opened its first resort in India, the JW Marriott Mussoorie Walnut Grove Resort & Spa.
“JW Marriott Mussoorie Walnut Grove & Spa is a beautiful addition to our growing India portfolio and overall global presence,” says Mitzi Gaskins, vice president and global brand manager for JW Marriott. “Each year, thousands of travelers pass through the picturesque hill station of Mussoorie to experience its temples, gardens, hiking trails and natural falls and we are thrilled to celebrate that rich history and culture with our guests.”
The hotel’s interior and exterior design was inspired by its natural surroundings. The new 115-room luxury resort is located just 180 miles from New Delhi and 40 miles from the nearest airport in Dehradun.
Among the five specialty restaurants on property, all-day dining JW Cafe serves fresh local and international favorites an open kitchen and Teppan is a contemporary, upscale restaurant serving Asian cuisine. The hotel also boasts Wisteria Deck, Perch tea lounge, and Trout House Grill & Bar, as well as the Cedar Spa by L’Occitane.
The resort was specially designed with families in mind and features the Den—an entertainment center and kid’s club that spans more than 12,000 square feet and includes a two-lane bowling alley, billiard tables, gaming consoles, a library, nap areas, and a market with fresh food and beverages.
The hotel additionally holds one of the largest meeting spaces in the city with 3,300 total square feet across the Grand Orchard ballroom, three breakout rooms, and a spacious prefunction area.
