Van Durga has a wonderfully calm & serene atmosphere which is perfectly in line with the satisfaction that Maa's darshan brings us. The main view of this place is that of the Vaishno Devi hill. Their location is just outside of Katra & they offer services to take us back & forth from the main town. From the time one... More

I really liked the villa I stayed at. It had a gorgeous view of Vaishno Devi, could see the helicopters as well. It is somewhat away from Katra, which can be both good and bad. On the positive, it is away from the crowd; however it is also away from any civilization at all. The food was good, and the... More

Van durga is a wonderful hotel/resort. Placed suitably 3 km away from Katra - the hotel is professionally managed, staff courteous & food just like home. There was not single issue of discomfort. It has beautiful surroundings & makes you feel that you are not staying in Pilgrimage accommodation. I would give a thumbs up to this place. Tip: If... More

We stayed in this place for 2 nights during our trip to Vaishno Devi Temple. Located at about 5 kms from Banganga, this place is off all those hotels crowded in the Katra Market area. Most/All rooms face the Tirkuta mountains and this is really a sight! We were welcomed by very courteous staff who also gave us loads of... More

Wonderful is how I would sum it. My villa had a straight view of the Bhavan hill. The food and room service was excellent. I have small kids and was fasting for Navratra's and the team at Van Durga was most helpful in providing customized cooking. The people in charge (Mallika, Vidyanand, Ramakrishna) are warm and helpful and so is... More

Since it was our first trip together, I and my wife were really excited as soon as we reached Jammu airport. But our taxi driver from Jammu airport to Van Durga put a wet blanket on our excitement. As soon as we told him that we had to go Hotel Van Durga, he started giving discouraging reviews about the hotel... More

I had very good experience every second here. Though far from katra, you dont feel that as manager helps a lot. He drops to hill with basic fare.Rooms are excellent. Greater view of vaishnodevi hill. Interiors and exteriors are excellent. Everything is very fabulous. Food is made fresh here,but can be bit tasty here.
