This is probably one of the best places I have stayed in the Himachal. Everything is done to perfection. The property, the rooms, location, food, hospitality, and what not. The architecture of this place deserves a special mention. It is done so well that it is an out of the world experience. Parvati valley itself is really beautiful, but it... More

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

Awesome experience! Resplendent ambiance amid the verdant greens, our stay indeed has been an exceptionally great experience. The place is a must visit for every trekker and nature lover. I stayed at The Himalayan Village which is situated just on the outskirts of Village Kasol. The resort is the best in terms of ambiance, hospitality, proximity to nature, food and... More

The resort is beautiful in practically every way... The cabins, lawns, greenery, scenery, ambience, construction quality, etc. But then it stops there... The service levels are perhaps some of the worst I have seen... The food is extremely ordinary and overpriced. All the staff need more training and professionalism. The quality of toiletries belies logic. As a perspective, we paid... More

One of the most peaceful places I have ever been to- the only sounds that filled the air were the wild river flowing and birds chirping (and maybe the rare honking by buses as they pass- barely 4 times or so through the whole day). The property has modern amenities in the middle of nowhere. The kitchen churns out some... More

We stayed for 2 nights in mid June. This was a family trip (me, wife, two young kids - 6 and 8). Our first trip to Kasol and in fact first trip to that part of Himachal. THV is a place of unexpected luxury in such a remote location. Very spacious and luxurious rooms, with Tata Sky connection to boot.... More

food is expensive, but overall experience is very good. only 8 cottages, thus for a group of 8 couples, best place to go for. 5 kms away from Kasol town. its just a place for relaxing . activities one has to got to kullu which is 1.5 hrs.' drive.

We spent one night at the Himalayan Village, Courtesy a close friend who made the reservation for us. The location is beautiful, and the cottages very well built. If someone wants peace and quiet this is the place - But Beware, eat out at Kasol. The prices are ridiculously high - it just didn't make sense. We were informed, not... More

Great property complimented with great service. The resort is nicely built with great views from all rooms. The lush green forest on one side and river on the other really compliments the property. Staff is very courtetous, no one can have any complaints. One suggestion though, the price of bevarages and wafers etc. should be kept at MRP. I dont... More
