This is an amazing place to stay. Ladakh Sarai, Leh is about 15 minutes from Leh Airport and is away from the hustle of the Leh downtown. This is a resort, with a beautiful view of the snow capped Himalayas; almost from every room in the resort. The atmosphere is very relaxing and enjoyable. The staff literally pamper you with...

Ladakh-Sarai is truly a large-hearted host in Leh. This was my second visit to Leh and both times I have stayed at Ladakh-Sarai. A very short drive away from the main city of Leh set amidst gorgeous lush green Willow & Poplar plantation, Ladakh-Sarai is a truly Royal Host. As this was my second trip I was looking forward to...

We were two couples with children and stayed there for 5 nights. Initially we saw some renovation going on and were disappointed. Mr. Tsetan gave us an option to shift to another hotel but we stayed there since we liked the scenic place with wonderful views from the windows. It was a great decision to stay back looking at what... More

I was looking forward to staying at the Ladakh serai but as I reached the property I was shocked to see that they were in the process of renovating the property. It was nothing like I had seen in the website. They led me to a room ,a small cottage style room and then to a big newly constructed room... More

Amazing experience here. I've never had such generous service, the rooms are really nice, and the food is fantastic, a real nice mix of traditional Tibetan and Ladakhi cuisine with Indian and western dishes just when you feel like some comfort food. They organized some excellent excursions and an incredible trek that was exactly what I asked for. I can't... More

This was my fourth trip to Ladakh and third trip staying at the Sarai. When I chance upon the Sarai researching for a unique experience for my group of friends I wanted a place that is not a typical 3-5 storey hotel. I was enchanted by the yurts and mud houses of the Sarai. What sets apart this exceptional property... More

For the price that you pay for this place, it goes way beyond expectation. The place comes with lovely cottages set in a beautiful green compound with a fantastic view of the mountains, a pool table, a yoga room with an instructor and such great food! We were staying for just one night but the hospitality made us wish we... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Come live as nomads do!Perched above the raging Indus River and resting quietly below the massive Ladakh Range exists a peaceful green oasis - the serene grounds of the Ladakh Sarai. The Sarai is Ladakh's premier eco resort, a tribe of 16 yurt-style bungalows and 6 mud hut cottages nestled in a beautiful grove of willow, poplar, apricot and apple trees. The Sarai is situated comfortably apart from bustling Leh town, just a 10 minute (7 km.) scenic drive away through winding streets, quaint bazaars, and desert stretches. The Ladakh Sarai was created in 1978 by the British adventure travel pioneers, Tiger Mountain. We have maintained the rustic and unique feel of private, cozy yurts, while adding the comforts of attached baths. Each spacious yurt has 2 twin beds and a small sitting area. ... more   less
