I visited Banjara Retreat in the first week of August’14 along with my wife & my 5.5 years old daughter & stayed for 2 nights & yes we were the only ones at the retreat/hotel during the stay. This hotel is located amidst the nature in a small village located just 5 kms before Jalori Pass on SH 11 &... More

Spectacular drive just short of the Jalori Pass on a bend of the road overlooking a vast green valley lies this place almost hidden from the main road. Four dozen steep steps(appear eighteen dozen when climbing up) lead you to charming property surrounded by cabbage, potatoes and apple orchards. After a drive of two weeks through Kinnaur, Spiti, Lahaul valleys... More

Pros Banjara is at a great secluded location with amazing views. Hospitality by the Manager Rishi is outstanding. They try their level best to make you feel at home. Food is decent. Cons There is...

It is two hill homes, in the midst of a himachali village, just as you drive off the Jalori pass coming from Kulu. There are irises and daisies - the rooms are lovely and the balcony outside begs dreaming. You can sit and gaze at the mist in the valley, the trees outside, the sun on the hillside and sketch...

This was our first experience with banjara Shoja. After really long drive from chandigarh airport - this quaint little village made it look all really worthy! Overlooking the green expanse of tall deodhar trees, this property is located in absolutely non touristy area - making it retain its rustic and original himachali village charm. we stayed at the room down...

Hi, This is place is very strategically built in a valley overlooking awesome views. Sojha is a sleepy village with probably 5-6 shops. The population board depicts ~40. We went around Mar 30 last year while it was still snowing. En route to Jalori Pass, which is beautiful during winters with snow, this place would come, but one has to... More

This retreat is at a heightof 8000 feet. Which tells you about temperatures even in summer.Its tucked away on the mountainside, about 100 feet down from the bustling village of Shoja with a huge population of 35!!!! Go to this place to simply relax in lovely sunshine on the green lawn, falling asleep on the garden chair halfan hour after... More
