Travelers' Choice
8,825 feet above sea level in the Pir Panjal range of the Himalayas lies a higher order of luxury. The Khyber Himalayan Resort & Spa is spread over seven unspoilt, fir-laden acres, with majestic views of the Affarwat Peaks. This 85-room resort is framed at every vantage point by nature at its most spectacular. The world’s highest ski lift, the Gulmarg Gondola – which takes you to Kongdoori Mountain, is only a short walk away. Meadows and forests that have enchanted travellers for centuries wait to be explored by trekking enthusiasts and undying romantics. Clad in locally sourced pine and slate, the resort is built in a style true to the architectural heritage of Kashmir. In every way the indoors mirror the beauty of the outdoors. Specialty restaurants, a cigar lounge are amongst the necessary luxuries in place. Add to these other thoughtful additions like our children’s club, a mini theatre and a dedicated Activities Concierge and you will find The Khyber is a resort at par with the best in the world.

The hotel is courageous, the location is breath taken, and the food is delicious. But most important are the hotel staff, including everybody; guards, reception, porters, cleaners, back and front desk staff, security ...etc. Thank you, Mr. Irfan Rashid, who was kind enough to escort me to my room and explain about hotel facilities. I highly recommend attending the tea testing. Thank you, Mr. Tajamul. The Italian restaurant, Brava, is a must. Good food, nice decoration, and good vibes. Thank you; Mr. Varun, Mr. Aamir Javaid, Mr. Arif, Ms. Nissa, Mr. Sahil, Mr. Mumish and the kitchen team. A big THANK YOU goes to everyone in the hotel 🙏🏻😊

We stayed for two nights at the Deluxe Suite of the Khyber with 2 Adults and 2 Children. We were completely floored by the truly rich and culturally conscious appointments across the hotel and going into the rooms and even into the luxurious and thoughtfully carpetted bathroom! The staff was very polite and courteous and explained every detail to us. Unfortunately the hotel doesn't have lifts or elevators and so steps will need to be taken to get to the rooms on the first floor (where we stayed). The food breakfast and lunch was delicious and was an international spread with once again friendly waiting staff at your every request. We feasted on traditional Kashmiri dishes and sumptuous breads and rices. Our chilling spot was the Calabash where the Shisha experts prepare international level shisha mixes for you. We were always assisted by the terrific Mr Avinash at Calabash who made sure our time was well spent with great conversations and ideas for food and drink. We witnessed Gulmarg's snowfall at the start of our arrival at the Khyber and the magic never stopped for us. Thank you The Khyber!

4 seasons resort We talk of Gulmarg, we talk of Khyber. We clubbed it with Tulip season and a period which is in between seasons . which turned out pretty well as depending on the weather , which oscillates every hour , we had a taste of winter and summer both. Glad the resort is centrally heated . Property - Excellent location ,stones throw from the Gondola and a kilometre from the market . Kudos to the architect for the beautifully planned and executed property . Almost all rooms have a gorgeous view of the snow capped himalayas , and there are numerous exits at all levels  if you would want to venture out. open spaces could have been more .. though it may be a geographic limitation. There was snow all around at this time of the year, a photographer's delight . Rooms- Spacious, well lighted and heated . We got a south facing one, sunlight streamed in on a day or two. Food- Seven Star chef ...All meals have a very go od variety and superb preparation. Chicken Dosa in breakfast is a must. Never miss the evening tea at Nauf, don't miss the Kahwa and Brownie . Wazwan is a must in dinner .Coffee is excellent, strong and hot . Alcohol is not served,but you can carry your own and sit in a well designed and luxurious space just next to the reception . smoking areas are designated. Activities- The heated pool is superb . well maintained,  plush interiors , huge glass windows , perfect water ,open 9 to 9, and attached with a Jacuzzi, steam and sauna- complimentary for guests . I was very happy with the maintainance. I didn't get a Chance to avail the Spa.Try trekking to nearby mountains,  it's very very scenic ,with multiple routes, but it's outsourced, so carefully negotiate the prices , inclusions and exclusions . local taxis are very pricey but negotiable. Gulmarg is full of ice related activities, so you can be as busy as you want to be . Staff- Very hospitable and polite  . Dominated by handsome young Kashmiri fellas with a smile ...Varun was one who was very very forthcoming and a sweet laden accent. Logistics - Check in and check out is smooth, baggage transfer streamlined  , good parking area , and you can almost ask for anything you need. Live instrumental music is notable and adds to the authentic feel . Room service is very quick . Caution- never leave property without a jacket and an umbrella.  Always negotiate with outsourced facilities. have a great holiday
