Had booked 3 rooms for 2 nights in Aug 22. My family enjoyed the stay very much.. This place is serene and out of this world. The river Sindh flowing next to the property is cherry on the cake.. Must visit to experience Kashmir to its fullest.. Food, rooms, cleanliness, People and the location is Perfect.. The photos and videos doesn't fully capture the vibe of this place.. One must visit Villa Himalaya to be charmed for life.. 5 start rating from me and my family..

From a surly manager to unhelpful waiters to an unimaginative menu and pretty bad tasting food, there is much the owners could do to improve this property .. In fact, if it wasn’t for ever helpful smiling Sajjad, who not only waits at table but seems to take on every other job in this small hotel, I wouldn’t even have rated this poor. He was room service , concierge arranging trips and guides, advisor and friend all rolled in one! But sadly, one staff member does not a hotel make .. This place needs a rapid re-make and re staffing to make its truly unique setting right on the river more satisfying for the guests .

1. Location - simply mind blowing . The iconic Sindh river passes right behind the property . The evening tea on the river side and spending time with loved ones , just fantastic. 2. Staff - very friendly and courteous 3. Food - very homely and can accommodate different guests likings 4. Best room view is the one with the balcony , just staring at Sindh river morning and night was truly a gift I did stay for couple of nights in a balcony room overseeing Sindh river and it was definitely an unforgettable experience. It is a small boutique hotel with just 10 rooms which is well maintained and clean . I will definitely recommend for stay with family and kids.

We stayed here during our kashmir trip in june 14-16,we selected this resort bcz of its unmatched natural beauty .This resort is situated approx 15 km before sonamarg in a village KULLAN at the bank of beautiful SINDH river.Warm welcome by mr ALTAF & his team.Its a small boutique hotel so there are not many activity but its best in view of relaxation,food,natural beauty.You can spend hours besides the sindh river at any time day or night.Room service,room amneties,linen,food are up to the mark.One important thing these people are very humble,nice ,helping nature as they helped us for medical facility for one of our freind.Mr altaf,TAUSEEF,ZAHOOR every one is too good.Whenever i will get time i will definately come back.lastly i will mention name of MR. BAKSHI who helped me in bookin and made my trip hasstle free.

Actually I stade in this property twice, first in the last week of September 2021, and again in the last week of March 2022 to enjoy the white Kashmir. They always do warm welcome buy offering shawl (khada)to the customer. Homely honoured. This small boutique property is near sonmarg at kullan exactly at the Sindh river bank. So awesome Nice rooms , well hygienicly cleaned. Adequate bathrooms with all facilities. Linen qualities also best. Homely room service. There restaurant is situated in the front of river bank only also they have attached lawn with a facility of bonfire and barbecules. As per customer requirement they serve breakfast and dinner in the restaurant also and outside also you can enjoy the nature and also fresh air outside at the bank of river really it's fantastic experience. Lot of food choices is there in the menu, other than that also they serve if you required. Food quality super. The most pleasant experience to me at this villaHimalayan, when I visited the month of September on 29th and 30th September coincidentally my birthday was there, manager Altaf bhai and his team has celebrated over there it was really lifetime homely experience and sweet memories with me. In my second visit in the month of March to see white Kashmir I really enjoyed this white Kashmir from the room windows, oh God surrounding mountains where fully white covered with ice so fantastic. They also arrange personal tours for the customers For us they have arrange tour to small village on the Kargil road. It was fully covered of Ice. So lovely The Lunch was also arranged for us near the river with table chairs and everything like restaurant What a great hospitality. My personal appreciation and thanks to manager Altaf bhai and his team and also the managing group that is experience India,s directors. Kashmir itself is called heaven on the earth. I feel this property hotel villa Himalayan is certainly part of this heaven Once again thanks and best wishes for the future. At the same time I suggest who saver is visiting Kashmir, please do visit to this property don't miss it

Villa Himalaya is an amazing villa - hotel that I would highly recommend whole heartedly. The hotel is located about 18-20 km before Sonamarg. It really has a picturesque location on the banks of Sind river and mountains in the backdrop everywhere. The manager, Altaf and the entire staff is amazing. There is ingenuity and eagerness to help, in their behavior while interacting with the guests. The food served here is great with a very good spread and we liked all the food we had here. They also helped us in the local sightseeing and arranged some amazing experiences for us around Sonamarg, which made us realize that Sonamarg is not a location for a day trip from Srinagar or a night’s stopover while traveling to Leh Ladakh. There is so much for Sonamarg to offer. And for that I couldn’t find a better place in Sonamarg than Villa Himalaya. Special thanks to Sajjad and Anubhab on the staff for going out of the way to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. Also, special thanks to Tahier - owner of the place, who was very kind and helpful throughout our trip in Kashmir ! I am truly looking forward to visit this place again.

Beautiful boutique property next to the water stream, excellent staff and brilliant food. It would have been a great stay if the manager had some control and laid down rules in the property. This is a small boutique property so noise travels everywhere. Beware ! A big group checked in who was making a lot of noise until 2 in the night. I went out to raise this an issue at the reception but there was nobody there, I even tried contacting the hotel manager Altaf who did not respond. I had to personally request the other guests to stop yelling almost thrice and then the noise levels went down. We could barely sleep due to this, what concerns me is the fact that there was nobody at the reception at night, unresponsive manager and the property had no rules laid out for noise post a certain timing. On speaking to the manager - Altaf in the morning about this, he lied saying he had gone upstairs twice and went to inform the group about this noise. The guests from upstairs also came looking for him about something when I was at the reception so he was clearly never at the property.

The Villa Himalaya has everything one would expect from a dream vacation: stunning location, beautifully appointed rooms, delicious food and a very caring staff. Our most treasured memory is of the picnic they set up for us on a beautiful meadow with the swift flowing Sindh river a few feet away. Thank you Sajjad for anticipating all our needs . Taufiq , we were truly touched when you called us at Srinagar to check if we had arrived safely! Chef Rawat we are not complaining about the extra kilos you gifted us with your magical cooking ! It will be The Villa Himalaya for sure on our next trip to Sonmarg!

This place is right on the banks of the Sindhu River near Sonmarg. It is a little below Sonmarg and hence the weather was a little more favorable. It was the one of the best locations if you like the sound and flow of water. The river is simply majestic and the gardens and sir outs are brilliant right on the water. The staff is very nice and cooperative and food is extremely good basic north Indian and kashmiri food. Service is excellent and rooms are well appointed and bathrooms are nice. Try to book the balcony room if possible. This place is heavenly of you want to relax for a few days with home like food and serene ambience.
