Average time to visit
Chandigarh's salubrious climate helps make it a year-round destination. Though Chandigarh has pleasant climate throughout the year, it experiences cold winters. The temperatures can drop to sub-zero conditions during the peak winter season. The best time to visit Chandigarh would be October to November and from March to May. It is advisable not to visit Chandigarh during monsoons as the place has a history of having landslides every now and then.

Oberoi Sukhvilas is a relaxing haven in the foothills of the Himalayas, and is a perfect place for a peaceful stay with stunning scenery. Stay in beautiful tents or rooms, and enjoy the wonderful spa here - a perfect place to relax after an adventure.
Located in the outer Himalayas, The Oberoi Sukhvilas is enveloped in 8,000 acres of the Siswan Forest range in New Chandigarh. An oasis that is just 30 minutes from the city center and 45 from the city airport, the resort and accompanying spa is ideally situated for exploring the highlights of the local area or a place for guests to unwind amongst landscaped gardens, Rajput and Mughal architecture and glorious views.
With its own spa offering a variety of treatments and ample residences complete with their own pools, The Oberoi Sukhvilas is certainly not short of options for those wanting to merely potter about the resort. However, for those wanting to scatter some culture and soft adventure between indulgent Oberoi service and facilities there are options nearby to explore traditional local villages, bike along forest trails and explore Sukhna Lake and the Rock and Rose Gardens of Chandigarh.
Evenings here are spent at the multi cuisine restaurant and the bar accompanied by live traditional music before guests retire to one of the rooms, tents or villas thoughtfully dotted around the 25 acre site, offering forest views and a secluded stay.
There are five different accommodation options at The Oberoi Sukhvilas: Premier Room, Luxury Villa, Royal Tents with and without private pools and The Kohinoor Villa.
