We had decided to stay in Kasol to embrace the peace and tranquility of the Parvati Valley. Our group consisted of four families and totaled eight adults and six children ranging in age from twelve to nine. We arrived in Kasol after a two day trip that started in Ahmedabad and went via Delhi - Chandigarh and Nalagarh. We left... More

A great resort......the quiet is disturbed only by gurgling Parvati and sweet chirping of some exotic birds. A place for relaxation of mind and soul. I stayed in Lahaul Machan. The balcony, though a bit small, is great place to look out at the nature and relax. Quality of room and its accessaries was very good. The quality of food... More

Stayed here with family for 5 nights in May 2013. Overall, a very pleasant experience. This is a small family-owned 5 star property. The owners - Mr. Aman and Ms. Rashim are warm and affectionate folks and made us feel we were special guests in their home. When Ms. Rashim realized we had not packed enough warm clothes, she lent...

We stayed there for 1 night during November end of 2012. We took bus from new delhi to bhuntar and the hotel is near about 25 kms from bhuntar bus stand. The hotel provides the pick up.

Location - Average The property is located in the Bhuntar - Kasol road. The resort has grown from being a highway restaurant. That legacy shows as the resort is in a slightly noise road(and dusty in May). There are tall cliffs all around the resort which do not provide views that i like (rocks). The road separates the resort and... More

We stayed for 2 nights in the Himalayan Village during the first week of May. The location is a bit outside Kasol and Jari, so you don't have to deal with any of the annoyances of crowds (such as pollution etc). The rooms are stunning. Each cottage is a work of art furnished beautifully. The use of Pinewood in the... More
