This is a long overdue review. We visited Kashmir last year and were stranded in the devastating floods on the day of our scheduled return date. The grim memories of that experience were the reason to keep on delaying this review. We visited Phalgam first on our trip and had a scheduled stay at Almond villa for the last 4... More

Last June we were in Srinagar Kasmir. After visiting all the other places of interest in the valley,the last 4 days of our vacation were reserved at a very quaint homestay called Almond Villa. It is situated right on the main promenade parallel to the Dal lake. This road being the arterial road, always has a lot of traffic and... More

We were travelling to Srinagar mid of August ’14 and I had booked Almond villa for 3 nights. The villa is very well done up with wooden interiors, art work and paintings adorning the walls. The rooms are also quite spacious with windows opening out to manicured lawns, view of the dal lake and hills. We opted for dinner buffet... More

This is a beautiful property right on the Dal boulevard. It's away from the city chaos, has huge gardens and lawns to walk and laze. The host Jyoti as well as her staff are warm and helpful. You get the best view of Dal lake and the entire mountain range from Lotus Room. This place makes for an ideal place... More

We were informed on arrival that the room we had booked and paid a deposit for had been allocated to someone else. There was zero apology or seeming care for this error and it was only when we complained to management (in Delhi) that we were given a discount to compensate. A stressful start and we ended up instead in... More

We stayed 3 nights and travelled as an extended family with 2 children aged 11 and 9. The location is fabulous off Boulevard road and is nestled amongst Cherry, and Apple trees. The best part of our stay was spending evenings in their well manicured garden which has lovely view. The worse part of our stay was the lack of... More

Stayed here with my family, and had the most wonderful time. The place is tranquil and serene. Blooming flowers, lush green landscaping, orchard farms and natural beauty. We stayed in the main house on the ground floor wiTh the view of the dal lake. The set up, especially in the evening is breathtaking. The rooms are huge,extremely well maintained, with... More

I stayed here with a friend last weekend, and we both thoroughly enjoyed! The house is stunningly beautiful, right across from Dal Lake, on a massive orchard/garden with acres of lovely green all around. We were so warmly welcomed and quickly shown our rooms, which are HUGE with lots of space, nice bathroom, very comfy bed, and other appointments. The... More

I was apprehensive booking this home-stay. Never done that before- we always end up at a 4-5 star place when we travel with our children (who are adults now). This time, the trip planning was left to me and I wanted to try something different. We all just loved the place. From the charming hosts, to the food, to the... More
