A beautiful, well designed and well maintained ,Tranquil Place with the most gorgeous setting. The view of the mountains and the apple trees add a unique charm to the independent cottage style Resort.

The Owners Mr Sahir and Ms Nilofer are passionate and dedicated to giving their guests a comfortable and memorable stay.

The manager Owais is brilliant at his job and full credit to him for running the place so efficiently.

Excellent dinning experience the chefs Mushraq, Vijay and Aasif not only served us fingerlickingly delicious meals, but went out of their way to tailor make things as per our satisfaction and personal taste.

The staff be it housekeeping or F&B is so warm and courteous taking care to make ones stay super comfortable.(special mention to rafiq, usman and javed for the service the gave us)

For the cons I would say that the food is a tad bit overpriced and the location slightly away from the city centre (but personally it wasn’t much of a con for us, infact we liked it more for the fact that it was away from the hustle bustle of the city.)

This place is a perfect mix of modern international standard accommodation, with the warmth of Kashmiri Hospitality.

I would highly recommend it and shall be back again soon.

We visited Srinagar in February and chose this property for our stay. It's a new property in Srinagar with beautifully done cottages. They have ample parking space, a big children's play area, small library, big pool. Staff is courteous and always on their toes to help u.
The cottages are very spacious with big room and bathroom. The rooms are completely loaded with all amenities one would need in their stay.
All in all it was a great stay with few hiccups Food is a bit overpriced and location is a bit off.

We stayed for 3 nights in lockdown situation as wore not able to travel to Sonmarg from Pahalgam, booked hotel directly calling from no on Google on 30th April 2021 till 3rd May 2021. As we reached we wore given excellent rooms clean and hygienic . The Resort is huge with lot of facilities for family and kids our flight got delayed so we extended our stay for a day but really had relaxed family time and didn't ever felt to go out of resort specially in a Lockdown Situation. The garden is very well maintained and all rooms and areas are well maintained to best 5 Star level . We had best family time along and in Pendamic Situation had hardly any guests . Breakfast is good and the service is extremely good as staff goes out of there way to support you and make you feel important and comfortable. Food is very expensive and also quality is not as per 5 star standard may be for Lockdown Situation as chef was out of town due to Pendamic. Overal excellent resort and staff and management is excellent . The owner personally takes care of the staff and daily visits the resort and looks for 100% excellence which is very important. The Architecture of the Resort is world class and can be compared to the best in the Word. Overall Excellent Resort for Family time and across all season's you can visit this place which is best always...

I travelled to Srinagar with my Wife and Son on 1st Jan 2022.
I had booked ourselves at The Orchard Retreat and Spa . The property is around 35 minutes away from the Srinagar International Airport by car.
It is a beautiful boutique property. They have individual cottages with very spacious rooms and all modern amenities of any star category property.
The best part of the property is the actual Apple and Apricot orchard. As we were travelling in Winter the trees were bare but the aesthetic sense of the garden was evident from the care the management has taken.
The staffs are very nice. I must mention here the name of Mr. Owais the Manager of the property who is a very helpful man and is always smiling.
The food is awesome. My package included Breakfast and Dinner, but the food was so tasty that we had our lunch as well here.
The breakfast and dinner buffets are also very elaborate and the food is very tasty.
I strongly recommend this property for couples and family and I am sure you will be happy as I am

When I dance, I dance; when I sleep, I sleep; yes, and when I walk alone in a beautiful orchard, if my thoughts drift to far-off matters for some part of the time for some other part I lead them back again to the walk, the orchard, to the sweetness of this solitude, to myself…quote by Michel de Montaigne is meant for this beautiful retreat. Orchard Retreat & Spa, Srinagar is meant for those who want solitude amidst apple orchards and explore their creative sides and also meant for those who want to spend quality family time. Spread over acres of land in the midst of apple, apricot and peach orchard the twenty attractive and cosy cottages simply blow your mind away. It is like living within Kashmir’s very famous Mughal gardens - the variety of flowering plants in full bloom is unbelievable hats off to the gardeners and care takers! Brilliantly maintained, pretty lounges, long walking trails, children’s play area, trampoline, Table Tennis tables, cycles for all sizes (which need a bit of upkeep) mouth watering authentic cuisines and amazing spread in the restaurant makes it the best place to stay in Srinagar. The property is on the road which leads to Srinagar and in a peaceful location on slight outskirt of Srinagar but not too far when one has a car at disposal. The staff is very courteous, Muddasir, Abrar, Saquib and Salman at the reception, Jaaved in housekeeping and Kapil Sharma look alike Akhtar in the restaurant….all very helpful and caring. They provide very good vehicle at a cost for short drives, Amir the driver provided was very professional. What touched our heart the most was the packed breakfast they provided on the day of our early flight return journey with a beautiful message inscribed “Wish you a Happy Journey and Hope you will come again.” J To imagine we having sleepless nights over our safety before our all girls trip to Kashmir and to come back feeling we have left a family behind…we experienced true Kashmiriyat throughout our journey. Orchard Retreat and Spa is where I would love to stay on all my future visits to Srinagar.

I was so impressed when I first arrived at the resort, the atmosphere was so peaceful, I could hear the bird singing and the water flowing through the rocks in front of the welcome door of the resort.
I came from Viet Nam and I thought that I would have difficulty having the Indian foods but it turned out it was not as I thought, the Chef at the resort designed a menu that is suitable to all people from all over the world, I enjoyed the foods very much as it tasted delicious
The servants were so friendly and enthusiastic in giving the information. They also called you to remind or notice when meals were ready. How nice they are
The room was so big for one person, the bath room was huge with modern facilities. There was also tea or coffee and electric kettle in the room so you could make tea or coffee yourself
For laundry service, you can just call the servant and they would come to your room to pick up the clothes and return them back the following day, wonderful

If I have a chance to come back Srinagar, this resort will be always my first favorite resort to stay in

Our stay at Orchid Retreat and Spa at Srinagar was very memorable. The private cotteges are maintained spic and span with individual sit outs. The buffet was very tasty. I want to make a special mention of Mr. Mohammed Rafiq , the FNB executive. He was very friendly and suggested us about sightseeing places at srinagar. He was very courteous and attended to all our needs during the morning buffet . Their gift shop collections were also very nice at a reasonable price

Our stay was planned by Mr Khalid who took extra care in making our stay comfortable! From airport pick up to the day we left every one was making sure we were enjoying our stay. Enjoyed the warm welcome with saffron kehwa to breakfast buffet and Ala carte/ buffet dinners. Resort is an “oasis” in itself, a beautiful retreat away from city hustle bustle, complete unwinding! Room service was superb, the in-house team 24/7 is very knowledgeable, kind and soft spoken. The experience of a lifetime! Going again and staying at the same place.
The one thing I would suggest is put on signs from airport to the resort that would add more essence to for drivers! Thanks to all staff members!

It was a splendid experience to have a stay at Orchard Retreat. It was our first visit to Kashmir and we got the best hotel for stay, couldn't ask for any better.
Everything right from the reception area, coffee shop, restaurant, our cottage was fabalous. There is also play area for kids, Cycle for free ride, Table Tennis. The garden area is well maintained and they also keep bonfire during winters. Every cottage has a good deck area outside for leisure.

Service was top notch, USP I must say is the location and the food from Orchard. Breakfast and Buffet was delicious. Head Chef is very attentive and responsive for his work. He will try to fulfill every request you have.

Mr.Javed from the Hotel staff was super attentive, he made us feel so comfortable. He used to be very friendly with every client. Next time If I am coming to srinagar I am definitely coming to Orchard. Have also recommended to many friends.

It's a beautiful resort situated on the outskirts of Srinagar City & it takes 45 mins from the Airport to reach here. If you are looking to relax with your family, it's a perfect place, very peaceful with lush green gardens overlooking the mountains.

They provide the service to book taxis for city tours (you can book the same from the reception) & it arrives in few minutes but best to book in advance.

We had booked 2 Bed room Luxury Cottages with inter connected rooms and they have a private patio to enjoy our evening tea. It's a perfect place to stay with kids & senior citizens. The rooms were spacious & clean and the bathroom was huge with a shower area & separate dressing area ( I would give 4 out of 5 on cleaning). We had also booked breakfast & dinner with the hotel & the food was amazing & very delicious.

The property has 2 restaurants, we enjoyed drinking our coffee overlooking the gorgeous landscape of the resort and the scenic hilly view. They also provide Hookah & serve it your room for less than INR 1400 (for all sheesha lovers traveling from Middle East).

They also provide amenities like Gym, swimming pool, recreational activities. I enjoyed cycling after many years.
