ITC Hotels has announced the opening of WelcomHotel’s latest hotel, WelcomHotel Tavleen Chail in the North Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. This is the 2nd WelcomHotel to open in the state after WelcomHotel Shimla.
Located in the Shivalik region of Himachal Pradesh, Welcomhotel Tavleen Chail is set in the heart of a beautiful hill station that is 37 kilometres from Shimla via Kufri. The closest airport is Chandigarh (120 kilometres away), and Delhi is an 8 hour drive. Spread across three hills – Rajgarh, Sadh Tiba and Pandewa – the Chail region overlooks the stunning valley of Sultej, offering panoramic views of the countryside and Shimla.
Spread over 6.5 acres of woodland and nestled amidst oak & pine forests, the resort offers glorious views of the Himalayan peaks.
The hotel consists of 65 elegantly appointed guest rooms, including 18 fairytale cottages and a luxury suite. Each accommodation comes with a private sit-out with breathtaking, panoramic views of the pristine mountains and the Shivalik Range. Set amid a magical oak forest, the cottages are ideal for those seeking their ‘very own cabin in the woods’.
WelcomCafe Monal is an all-day dining restaurant that serves the best of international, Indian and local Himachali cuisine. The traditional Welcomsthalika serves an assortment of authentic regional dishes on a platter. The ingredients are seasonal and locally sourced, supporting the farming community of the neighbourhood.

Nakul Anand, Executive Director, ITC Hotels, said:
With the Indian tropical summer approaching, we believe it is the perfect time to launch another Welcomhotel outpost in Himachal Pradesh. For those who love to take the road less travelled, Chail makes for the perfect destination. With the new ‘work from anywhere’ concept gaining popularity, Welcomhotel Tavleen Chail is the perfect bleisure destination for work and pleasure. The heightened WeAssure hygiene and safety measures ensure travelers peace of mind as they enjoy the destination. Collaborating with like-minded partners who bring unique hospitality experiences has further strengthened ITC Hotels footprint across the length and breadth of the country.
This is the 3rd WelcomHotel property to open in less than a year. In December last year, ITC Hotels announced the opening of WelcomHotel Shimla of which I have a full tour on my YouTube channel and which also features in my Top 10 list of 5 star hotels in Himachal Pradesh.
In March 2021, the chain opened its 2nd hotel in Gujarat, WelcomHotel Ahmedabad. With the addition of the premier mountain resort at Chail, the Welcomhotel brand currently boasts a portfolio of 19 properties across India.
