We stayed on this property on 8th and 9th nov..must say..its one of the best properties in Sonmarg..just on the river. Lovely cosy rooms, huge bed, lovely food..kudos to their chef..he does a good job. And they also arranged some amazing Kashmiri music night in the evening and bonfire before dinner which adds a warm touch and makes your stay very memorable. Only would request them to supply hot water 24hours..not just till 10am in the morning or at night only. They should understand,guest are on a holiday, they may even want to rest and get up late and have a late bath. Rest everything is excellent..their staff is also very friendly . Totally recommend.

Lovely hotel with average sized but comfortable rooms. The bathroom was small and a little dingy. Hardly any counter space as the wash basin basically covered the area. The shower is the standard plastic cubicle with curved sliding doors which don’t close too well, so water tends to leak out during shower. We were 2 couples and the other couple got a room with dirty looking flooring around the toilet. A repair job was done badly with the glue looking blackish. Definitely not something you want to look at during a holiday! Fortunately, they were able to switch to another room. The hotel is about 20 km from Sonamarg. Takes about 30 mins to drive to the town. The Sindh river runs through the back of the hotel and breakfast was served in the garden just above the river. Very lovely setting. Breakfast comes with choice of eggs, cereals, Indian choices such as Puri & Channa gravy, sandwiches. Dinner, which was included in the package has limited choice, but very good. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. Only 3 rooms look out towards the river (back of the hotel). This has the best view. So, if you can, insist while booking for one of these rooms. Unfortunately. Since we did not realize this, we got rooms facing the sides, with not much of a view. The bed was very comfortable though the pillows tend to be very soft.

Dear Sir, Greetings from Villa Himalaya! We would like to thank you for staying with us at Villa Himalaya. Your feedback is very important and valuable for us, as it helps us to do even better. At The Villa Himalaya our constant effort is to keep our esteemed guests satisfied in every manner. We would like to clarify some of the points highlighted by you: 1: Our bathroom size is standard 60sq feet and we have good space on the counter to keep your toiletries. 2: We believe you have missed out on a very important element of our hotel that we do not endorse plastic in hotel, Our cubicles are made of toughened glass and have been installed by Jaguar - a reputed sanitary brand in the country. 3: You are absolutely right that the repairing job was done in that particular bathroom and we agree it was not up to the standard of Villa Himalaya. As you are aware that the Himalayas are challenging because of ogistical reasons, and us being in a remote area it does get difficult to get the proper repairing done at a short notice. However we have now managed to fix it. Pertinently, we would like to mention here, that we were able to get you a quick room change without delay. 4: One of the prime feature of Hotel The Villa Himalaya is its location and this has been the USP of our hotel since its inception. With a gushing river running in the front, our hotel is located 13 kilometers from town and on the banks of the Sindh River. All it takes is a 20 minute drive through majestic mountain roads and nomadic encampments. 5: Handcrafted Menu: We are a boutique hotel and serve a wide range of carefully selected menu sourced with local ingredients. All our guests are served with their choice of meal options right from the traditional Kashmiri to Indian, Chinese and Continental fares. Besides we are known for our signature meals served at the restaurant all day. During your stay you can always speak with the resident chefs so that food is prepared as per your choice and taste. 6: We do have 3 Balcony Rooms overlooking the river and rest of our First floor rooms have a Mountain view and Partial River View which are equally stunning. We hope that you will make your way back to us in the future and give us a chance again to be at your service. Many Thanks Team - Villa Himalaya

Unlimited reasons to say this is one of the best property to stay in Sonmarg. Best river side panoramic view, amazing amazing food, fresh and palatable, friendly owner, cleanliness on top, trained receptionist to caretakers. Special thanks to Mr Shehzad. He was an amazing staff member thr. He took extreme care and pain to fulfill demands of not only our group, but everyone around. I can never forget a man this hardworking yet humble and sweet. NOTE: book your balcony room in advance for sure, coz this experience is something you shouldn't be missing. I fell in love with this place. If and whenever I am visiting Srinagar again, Villa Himalaya will be one of the reason.

The Villa Himalaya was absolutely magical. Excellent view of the mountains, river and very spacious rooms. The staff was very helpful, cooperative and friendly. The food was out of this world. They gave us a taste of all the authentic Kashmiri food. Hope to go there again to stay a little longer. Would highly recommend The Villa Himalaya.
