The first experiential resort under Radisson’s recently launched Radisson Individuals Retreats has debuted in Palampur – Himachal Pradesh, India. Rakkh Resort is a mélange of traditional ambience and barefoot luxury set against the pristine backdrop of the Dhauladhar snow-capped ranges. The ethos of the resort is built on sustainability and community engagement, reflected at every touchpoint of the resort from no-plastic zones and responsible waste management to reviving mountain streams and hiring local staff. Guests are encouraged to drink from the on-site natural spring which provides mineral-rich water throughout the resort. The five-acre resort houses 24 cottage-style rooms and suites that take inspiration from their surrounding with interiors reflecting the culture and beauty of the land.
Curated experiences which encourage a sense of community and bonding are at the core of Rakkh’s offerings. Enabling guests to appreciate a simpler way of life, activities range from rejuvenating spa treatments, yoga, village walks, weaving, and traditional cooking. Nearby guests can try paragliding at Bir-Billing, visit the hilltop ruins of Kangra Fort, or marvel at the rock-cut Hindu temples of Masroor. The resort’s culinary philosophy promotes regional flavours with a strong emphasis on local Himachal food. The resort also has an infinity pool complimenting the panoramic views of the valley along with a game room, meeting space, and common living room.
