We enjoyed our stay, the room was very spacious an extra bed was provided when requested. Bell service was excellent, restaurant had excellent choices and variety. Breakfast, as usual was grand just like other Serena locations. Though half an hour from the Skardu city center, but the drive to Shigar Fort is breathtaking.

One of the most memorable trips of my life here. Great place if you want to spend a few days away from the urban sickness. Wonderful staff and a mesmerising fort housing some outstanding rooms. Worth a visit!

Apart from Shigar Fort's breathtaking location, demonstration of Kashmiri and Balti craftsmanship with historical importance, its garden is now full of sweet cherries, homegrown salad and other veggies, of which the potatoes are used for the most tasty french fries I had for a long time. These fresh ingredients are used in the restaurant and excess fruits are processed to... More
