Koti was built in the early nineties, by a family whose roots are in Shimla, and who envisioned the place as a retreat that was a vestige of the old world charm and hospitality of the Shimla of yore. Koti Resorts is an ode to the childhood summers spent in Himachal on family holidays.
The estate is outlined like a Swiss Chalet, to capture vistas of the sights and surroundings. The Koti Resorts family has been part of the community of Mashobra for the last three decades and has built a strong team made of locals and residents. We take pride in our role as custodians of the culture, community, and environment of Himachal
Designed to provide comfortable and private indoor and outdoor spaces for all of our guests. We have a selection of attractively planned rooms spread across the property. Our five cottage wings flank the central lawn, with rooms on each block offering breathtaking views of the snow-capped Himachal hillside. The cottages are perfect for those looking for a more private stay, while our west-facing block is suitable for larger groups.
Our staff lives locally and are well acquainted with the region, so please feel free to connect with our team for insights on the local flora and fauna, or to ask after hidden gems, nooks, and treasures of Mashobra and Shimla town. We love sharing our favourite haunts to visit with our guests. We also have several curated experiences for you to explore. Contact the front desk for more details.
Witness breathtaking views from the open seating to make the most of the mountain breeze and the memorable sights on either side. We have majestic views of the Shali peak on the east and tranquil views stretching down to Naldehra on the west.

Koti Resort’s two beautiful lawns are the perfect vantage points from where to watch the setting sun while enjoying snacks with a delicious cup of tea. There are plenty of deck chairs out in the garden for you to spend languid evenings. Our resident gardener takes pride in making sure the flora at Koti is blooming throughout the year. We have a variety of garden blooms gracing our lawns and you will always find fresh flowers placed in all our rooms across the property.
