Being the number 1 hotel in Kasol isn't quite a challenge, to be honest. However this hotel will easily make it in the top 5 all over the Indian Himalayas. During all my previous experiences in this region, I haven’t found anything that comes close.

The hotel seems to be brand new. My room was very spacious, so was the bathroom. They managed to combine traditional interior design with state of the art amenities.

The location in the Parvati Valley, ca. 6km from Kasol is great too. When you wake up in the morning the first thing you see are snow covered mountains and the wild Parvati river. I used the hotel as a base for some trekking in the mountains around Kasol. All was organized by the hotel, so was transportation to Shimla. I always had the feeling to be in good hands and if you are on a tight schedule, it is good to know that there are reliable people who can arrange guides, taxis etc. in advance, so no precious time of your vacation get’s lost.

Regarding food: Only when I arrived there I realized that I booked a breakfast/dinner complimentary package. I guess I’m a difficult guest when it comes to food, as I don’t eat animal or white flour products. It happens often in India that you ask for the ingredients, but once the food gets served you realize that the waiter gave wrong information. This was however not the case in this hotel and the people in the kitchen proofed to be very flexible. On top of it food was delicious!!

I can’t wait to come back to this hotel. For serious trekking March turned out to be a bit too early, even it was great seeing cherry blossom in the valley. Next time I will try to make it in September/October. Nearby remote villages like Malana or Rashol, with their tribal inhabitants, was some of the most impressive things I've seen in the Himalayas so far. The Parvati Valley is definitely a top destination in the Indian Himalayas and the Himalayan Village the best place to explore it!

This hotel is one of the best I ever stayed in last so many years !
Great architecture, ambiance, food, staff, location, rooms, bathrooms, every, every thing is just great. The location is far from maddening crowd of Kullu and manali and from here you can visit sites of these towns and come back here.

Room Tip: choose cottages.

Must stay at place! The owner is a really nice person! The place is so beautiful and close by to famous treks. The only issue is since its a little far away from kasol (5 min drive) you do need transport to get around. But still the place, the food, etc is all of top quality!

It was a wonderful experience stay at the Himalayan village property. Everything was great (Food, Service, Location & Staff). The nature walk on the last day was a great stuff. Looking forward for another stay soon.

The resort is very beautifully crafted and maintained. Staff is very helpful, courteous and friendly. The restaurant has a good variety of food to choose from.
We stayed at the Superior Machan, it has stunning view of the river and overlooks the entire property. It is surrounded by trees on the other three directions, enough distance for the nice chilly breeze to flow. Which reminds me the room gets quite cold after dark.

Room Tip: Superior Machan has the best view, although a bit expensive. Note that there are no elevators one has to ascend steep steps.
