Almond Villa is where I have enjoyed one of the best holidays of my life...

The occasion was a family reunion, in our ancestral land, now war-torn. Most of us were meeting after many years, with kids/ spouses et all. The older generation had significant childhood memories they were contending with. So suffice to say - emotions were erratic and high.

And it was in this beautiful villa that we all came together, harmonised, found our roots & built deeper bonds.

Almond Villa nurtured us, with its various charms. The "no entry" gate, just off the Dal Lake - keeps it well hidden, as it sits magnificently on the most prestigious Boulevard Road. The Apple orchards we drove through to get to the villa, melted away our urban-busy--life stress.

Spring descended into our senses, as the adjoining gardens were ablaze with a multitude of flowers & scents & bees & dragonflies. The Shankracharya mountain made a perfect backdrop, protecting & blessing this villa & all of us who had come to enjoy its comforts.

The villa inside is old elegance and riches...With its wooden flooring, huge ceilings, vast bedrooms and the most stunning carpets, durries, kilims, sofa covers, artworks adorning the walls. The living room upstairs was a great space to spend the long chilly evenings, over spirited conversations.

The food catered to a north indian palate, rather than local-Kashmiri (so we ordered from outside restaurants when we craved that). The staff was quiet and very helpful. They were up really early when we requested for packed breakfast prior to departure.

I am surely going back, with those I love.

Room Tip: Choose from Rose, Lotus or Sunflower room on the 1st floor...

Almond Villa is located between the Dal and the mountains which made it a perfect spot to relax and do nothing and read that book that I had been meaning to read for a while. The rooms are large and airy and very comfortable. The food is very good. The best part of the villa is the back garden where I spent an amazing afternoon just reading while my daughter blew on dandelions and chased butterflies and bulbuls.

Room Tip: The room at the back is close to the garden but also close to the kitchen. The front rooms and the first floor rooms have more privacy.

Our stay at Almond Villa in Srinagar was amazing. The villa is beautiful with a huge backyard and the front of the villa is facing Dal lake. The staff is extremely helpful and courtesy. This place is absolute value for money. Do pick up their jams especially the mulberry jam which is full of mulberries. The food is simple and wholesome. Everyday we ate breakfast in the backyard which is picturesque. If you get a chance you must stay here as you will not be disappointed.
