We have visited Kasol last month and as we searched we found out that the Himalayan village would be the best choice even with the higher room rates. The owner Mr. Aman Sood was very helpful to us as he took care of every single unusual request we hit him with. In the front desk there was Mr Kamlesh and... More

Had gone to Kasol to celebrate my fathers birthday. The check in was smooth and the rooms were spacious and cozy. You can hear the Parvati river gushing through the valley which is music to the ears. The food is alright though the choices are limited. Very beautiful lawns and the general upkeep is excellent. The cultural program in the... More

An absolute beautiful property. Definitely not managed from the couch. The attention to detail was very visible whether it was the property, the staff or the well manicured gardens. So different from the concrete structures you see in our beautiful mountains in India. This property had the traditional touch by the way it was constructed and kind of blends with... More

A good place to stay,bit expensive,food was good, must try kava( Tea), at the breakfast the service was very poor, we waited for around an hour to get the breakfast. They should have buffet breakfast instead of Ala carte. Overall the stay was good as there is no other good option around.

I stayed first in the Chamba Cottage and then in the Kullu Machan. Perfection is the word that comes to mind with the layout of the resort. The private garden adjacent to the cottage stole my heart as did the smiling faces of the staff. I felt like a king from yesteryear while the monsoon clouds had taken us to... More
