“Lovely!”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

We were welcomed with cups of ginger tea as we relaxed on the porch of our cottage and enjoyed the beautiful mountain views. We stayed in the deluxe cottage with bath. It was pleasantly decorated and very clean. The hot shower was a welcome surprise after taking many cold bucket showers in other hotels in India. There is a huge garden in the center of the property providing fresh fruits and vegetables to the restaurant. The food was delicious and plentiful with lots of variety. The staff was friendly and attentive. Beds were very comfortable, however our room was a bit hot as there was no ceiling fan. Coming from a cooler climate, I prefer to sleep with a sheet or a light blanket during the summer months. As in other hotels in India, there was only a heavy duvet as a bed covering (no top sheet), which made for an uncomfortably warm night's sleep. I'm sure an extra sheet would have been provided had I asked, but after settling in I didn't bother to go looking for a staff person. Although we only spent one night here, I was very impressed and would happily return for a longer stay.

The resort is situated on the banks of Indus river on Leh-Srinagar highway approx 70 Kms from Leh. The near by attractions are Alchi (~1 Hrs drive) and Lamayuru (~2 Hrs drive).

The best thing about the resort is the location. The resort is on the lap if mountains with beautiful surroundings. It was extremely pleasant to sit on chairs on cottage lobby, having cup of hot tea, with no noise except of fluttering wind.

We choose deluxe cottages for our stay as they have attached toilet and bath. Standard ones have common toilet between 2 cottages. Hot water is available as they have solar heaters installed.

Food was acceptable as it lacked variety. Many items were repeat in lunch and dinner and they are never on time. 2-3 hours of delay in starting lunch or dinner is very obvious for them and the staff will come with 100 reasons on why they are not on time and half of them will hold you responsible for the delay. It is utter chaos once the lunch / dinner starts as everyone is hungry because of delay and the barely cop-up with the influx of guests. Be late by 15-20 mins and all you will get is left-over items as they fail to maintain sufficient quantity of food. And if you still want to get food then they are very happy to serve you and will politely tell you to wait for another 2 hours to prepare and serve food.

If you are pressed for time, it is advisable to constantly remind them of your needs. And by constantly I mean at every half an hour. Morning, evening, night.

Overall the resort is on the extremes. The location and cottages are one of the best I have experienced and staff and service are one of the worst I have experienced.

Room Tip: Deluxe cottages are circles around a ground and have better views of the surrounding area.

Four of us (2 couples) did a one night stay at Ule Eco Resort during our week long sojourn in Ladakh. We halted here on the Alchi - Lamayuru leg of our trip. The cottages are located beautifully in the lap of mountains with excellent views on all sides. The dining area has a outdoor section which boasts breathtaking views of Ladakh! We sipped hot cups of tea watching the sunset! The food is good and prepared hot and fresh. The owner stays within the resort in his own cottage and is very friendly. The bathroom is attached but outside the cottage. Hot water was available at all times which is commendable in such a remote area since they had solar heaters installed. Beds were very comfortable and we slept very well without any bugs bothering us. It was a most satisfying experience.
