I with my wife and child stayed at heevan retreat in the month of April 2013... As suggested by trip advisor I asked for a River facing room and luckily got one. room no. 205. The view from the room was breathtaking. snow capped mountains, lush greenery and the lidder River flowing below. . it was like a beautiful painting. One can spend hours just sitting besides the window and listening to the gushing of the River. The room needed renovation as the plug points were Coming out. the bathroom roof was leaking and the wallpaper peeling off.I talked to Mr.Basharat khan who is the corporate manager food and beverages,AHAD hotels and he told me that it's very difficult to even bring a brick into pahalgam for renovation as d rules r very strict.
Anyways the service by the staff was excellent. everybody was ever smiling and trying to please everybody, even guests who did not get River facing rooms were told they would b adjusted later. The food was also good especially the tandoori Chicken and kashmiri pulao.As I stayed there for three days the menu got repeated on the third day but it was not an issue for me as i m not that fussy. breakfast was good and they also Serve complimentary evening tea. The place was packed with group tourists but d staff was managing well.
They also have free wifi which kept me connected even in my room on the second floor. overall I had a great time and I would recommend this place in pahalgam. keep it up.
