Stayed two nights in this hotel on our motorcycle tour of the Spiti Valley. The food, accommodation and hosts were excellent. The rooms were comfortable, clean and the place was well maintained. The hosts were more than friendly, organising a trivia night and tour of the Kalpa area for our group for no cost. Nothing was too difficult for staff...

I arrived here for a lunch that this hotel hosts for the local Ashram Girls. The overwhelming and sincere hospitality that motivates them to such community service was immediately apparent. I then spent most of the next week there every evening. The food is fantastic and the chef will go out of his way to prepare food to your requirements....

The traditional welcome and complimentary apple juice from the adjacent orchard was a pleasant greeting but the room I got to stay in was absolutely out of this world. With the most beautiful views of the Himalayas from a picture window and my own private balcony the décor was true to the area and wonderfully colourful. Unfortunately on the way...

Disadvantage is the place doesn't have lifts so to access library or the rooftop lounge you need to climb 5 floors. It is little expensive for the kind of food,stay and ambience they offer , however the...

It is a cost little family run hotel that provides a great view of the Kinnar Kailash range of Himalayas. Upper storeys have better views though it needs a bit of endurance to the higher floors. Best part of hotel is its aesthetically designed Attic with a skillfully curated library - with a great collection of books on Buddhism and...

My boyfriend and I stayed 3 nights at The Grand Shamba-La in June 2015. My boyfriend visited the hotel two years ago and it was great for him to come back again. The rooms have beautiful views facing the mountains and it's very quiet. It's great to sit in the library at the top of the hotel and watch the...

After a long 7-hr drive from Narkanda, we entered the hotel to a warm welcome. Over the next 3 day Prithvi (the owner) and his team took care of us like his family and addressed all our needs to the best of their abilities...be it food, sight-seeing, trekking or anything else. The suites we stayed in were richly done up...
