– What a place! Exquisite! The solitude and tranquility is to die for. The service – excellent! All staff members excelled. Perfect destination to unwind and be with nature.

Ashok Khosla

– The best in the Mussoorie area. The service was impeccable and the snacks and meals were DELICIOUS. The sky was star studded at night and clear. The cottage and property is very clean and no pollutants could be seen any where on the premises. A must visit destination for all nature lovers, city dwellers seeking peace, for bird watchers and all artists. The best part was that I felt so far away from civilisation and yet so close to it. I consider myself ‘one of the lucky ones’ to have found and stayed at The Dolina Retreat.”

Subhankar Biswas

– A paradise to all nature lovers that offers complete solitude. The place is on a hill top surrounded by complete greenery and is very clean well maintained. The professionalism demonstrated by the staff deserves special mention. The route to Dolina was a short 4×4 drive from the main road. Sincere thanks to the owner, Mr. Vikrant, who had come personally to ensure our stay was more than pleasant. We did a lovely nature trek above the hill. Overall experience was superb.

Aman Jain

– A beautiful place with amazing staff and the food is very good. You get a feel of Switzerland when you enter the cottage. It is a place I feel is built after a lot of research and hard-work. The rooms are tidy. A perfect getaway from the pollution and the city hustle bustle. Play sports, do archery or enjoy looking at the beautiful mountains, this place has it all. Sit besides the fireplace or sit outside near the bonfire and do a barbecue. Go to the ridge to see literally a sky full of stars and enjoying the view of Dehradun.
