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.

This is a wonderful retreat in the most beautiful mountains in India. The Khyber has been successful in capturing the stunning view, beautiful weather and combining it with the lord like hospitality and tasty food The palatial rooms with a balcony with a view, outdoor evenings and the warm swimming pool overlooking the scenic mountains were the cherries on the cake My best moment was to sit in the early morning hours in the giant lobby with the mammoth Venetian window and watch the ice clad mountains glow in front of me. What more does a poet need! If you have a weekend and some cool cash to spare, this is where you can head to

Our trip to Khybar was a truly a incredible one. As described on the hotel’s website “Heaven in Heaven”. The view from the property is simply breathtaking. Along with the property and the location, the service too was top notch. All in all, a memorable stay. A special mention for Miss Nelofer from the hospitality team. Not only did she take really good care of us and personally show us the entire property, she also gave us a lot of information/insights about Gulmarg. Truly an asset to your organisation.

I address this communication with a feeling called happiness . The main reason for this feeling called happiness is this beautiful staycation experience, which me and my family had at this beautiful place called The Khyber Himalayan resort and spa. It is often believed that bricks and walls make a house, but it is the feelings which make a house a home. The feeling of ‘being Home’ is the feeling of being taken well care of. I can make a confident statement that I felt home at this beautiful aforementioned property because my family and myself were taken care of beautifully. The following categories of services are a special highlight of this beautiful property which make this property the best one : 1) hospitality and service 2) food and in-room dining 3) heating and ventilation 4) amenities and activities 5) rooms and planning 6) ambience and quality I take this opportunity to make a special mention for the people that made an impression with their outstanding skills and overwhelming personality (in order of interaction at the property) : 1) Mr Mohammed Rafi (Duty Manager) 2) Mr Imran Hussain (team leader) 3) Mr Gautam Chauhan (Sous Chef) 4) Mr Satyaprakash Mishra (executive Chef) 5) Mr Mukammil (team leader F&B services) 6) Mr Arif Hussain (Breakfast team) 7) Mr Firdos parry (Breakfast team) I must appreciate the way, all of the above mentioned gentleman have assisted me with all chivalry and grace. A special mention for mr Mohammed Rafi Who despite having a busy schedule was available whenever assistance was required. Mr Imran has been most helpful when it came to local and property guidance. It is rather believed that an empty stomach can lead you no where. Mr Gautam Chauhan made sure that we have the tastiest meals. On special request from my family mr Chauhan and Mr Mishra made delicious deserts, which I must say have still left me finger licking. Mr Mukammil, mr Arif, and Mr Firdos are the quickest when it comes to getting the order on the Table. Despite a hall full of guest the trio made sure that orders reach on table in absolute punctuality and in top order of freshness. The property is very well planned and is a must visit. If you are in for a long and lovely staycation The Khyber Himalayan resort is the place to stay. The property makes sure that you are rejuvenated and fresh for years to come. The indoor swimming pool and gymnasium is a must visit if you’re staying here. I personally had an amazingly good workout and an energising swim. -paras sukhwani

Holidaying at Gulmarg and staying at Khyber was on our to-do list for years. It's a dream come true. The entire experience was top class - from making our reservations to our stay, checkout and even some refunds - Mansoor of Front Office was most helpful especially in also supporting a cancellation of my friend's booking....the staff was very very helpful for making our stay truly a dream holiday.The Khyber management gave us a room on the first floor that had an amazing view off the Apharwat snowclad range and top... We had dinner in our room as the balcony is wide and spacious - room' service is prompt... bed linen is world class 600 count linen even better than luxury seven star hotels......bath tub in room has a great view too ..well planned for a resort experience......the breakfast is international standards and well spread out though the dining room you'll find is always packed with guests as this property is mostly 100 percent booked.....the Khyber spa and pool are extremely beautiful and tops of the tops ... a warm sanctuary. Suggest staying in a room on the first floor as it comes with balconies facing the snow side view.... they're a bit expensive but totally worth it. There's no lift to the first floor but it's not a problem as the stairs is easy to negotiate. All wooden alpine style construction smells and feels very nice.....The property is right in the centre of Gulmarg so it's easy to walk down to the gondola ski lifts and for taking a horse ride to the golf course and the temple in the meadows or take a stroll through the small town to the stream.....we wished we could've stayed another day for exploring the place. The GM is a cordial person and is managing the property well. Khyber without double is a dream place and with definitely the finest hotel view.

We stayed for 2 nights from 02/05/22 to 04/05/22. The most shocking thing was cockroach at the buffet table. I immediately reported this to the staff and restaurant manager. Also spoke to GM Mr. Chabbra. They promised that they will look into this and get is pest controlled immediately. This I am sure must have been done by them but to find cockroaches in buffet table for such an expensive high class hotel is unbelievable. The next day my wife stayed home as she was not feeling well. She even skipped her breakfast. She requested housekeeping to clean the room so that she could sleep. Inspite of 3 calls, noone attended the room. At the end at 3 pm she went to reception to complain and then the rooms were cleaned. What I realised was that there is lot of arrogance set in the staff. The Hotel is fully packed for next 6 months. They have increased the rates to crazy levels and still the demand is very high so they do not seem to be bothered about customers. I made a written complaint to the owner from the Hotel but am yet to receive reply. Mr. Gautam, restaurant manager and Mr. Mohammad Rafi Bhat Duty Manger did try their best to pacify us and correct the mistakes. Even GM called my wife but all this after two unpleasant experiences. It was more of a fire fighting after blunders. The best thing for them is to bring new people who are humble. Ideally, they should give the Hotel to someone like Taj to manage. I have been to several Taj luxury properties and nowhere arrogance is seen. If a mistake happens they go all the way to correct it and the system ensures that it is not repeated with other guests. I found many small maintenance issues like balcony handles not fully functional and dustbin covers are not operational which all are due to lack of supervision and the attitude. Well now the good thing. The Hotel is located at beautiful place with very good view. It has heated swimming pool and spa. The gym has lot of Equipments. It is just 5 minute walk from the Gondola. The rooms are spacious. The buffet spread is good (minus the cockroach). They need another restaurant as people have to wait to get place for dinner. I hope my views are taken in right spirit. I usually never criticise publicly but a genuine feedback is a must so that other guests do not suffer.

Dear Guest, Greetings from The Khyber Himalayan Resort & Spa! It has been our privilege to have you stay with us at The Khyber Himalayan Resort & Spa once gain. We have always been earnest in our endeavor to extend the very best of Hospitality to our guests. At the onset please accept my sincere apologies for not standing up with your expectations this time. Being located in colder region, fortunately we don’t have any rodent or cockroach menace. Still on pointing out to chef and our restaurant manager , as a precaution we thoroughly did the pest controlling of the restaurant area. While we at Khyber relentlessly strive for the excellence, and work on every feedback as is considered the step closer to next level. This is very much acknowledged by you as well in your feedback when mentioned each Team member from the Top to bottom met and put efforts to make sure you are comfortable after the incident. Trust our Staff has been the real strength since the inception and have really helped us a lot to make Khyber, what it is today. And this is the reason so many advance bookings throughout the season. Trust this is not the excuse and just a little acknowledgement of their services which I believe have been given amiss in this particular case. I would request you to consider this a very thin human error and not the regular practice which is maintained at The Khyber. Considering your feedback on food utmost, had a brief meet with my Chef, F&B Manager, and the Executive Housekeeper to discuss the area of concern to avoid the reoccurrence in future. While thanking you, we all of us at Khyber Himalayan Resort & Spa looking forward to welcome you again on your next visit to valley and assure you of our excellence in services. Warm Regards Vinit Chhabra General Manager
