Built entirely by the Ladakhi craftsmen in 1820, the Stok Palace still continues to be a snug abode for the Namgyal dynasty. The Namgyal dynasty traces its origin to its founder –Lhachen Palgygon as early as 10th century. You are entering a historical property and the Palace stands 195 years old. The Stok Palace was opened to public in 1980 with blessings of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and since it’s been over a decade and visitors continues to pour from all over the World. It encapsulates and reflects the lifestyle and history of Royalties set in the midst of the valley of Singey Sangpo which is known more popularly as Indus River.

Atmospheric stay in a functional palace. Just 6 rooms of 70 for hotel guests. The rooms are somewhat dimly lit but comfortable. We stayed in standard room. Two people. Large. Lot of bending though while entering the room and other areas .. low doors. Tastefully appointed befitting a palace. Nice breakfast with generous proportions. We enjoyed a Ladakhi meal during our stay. Their sister property at the base of the hill ... Chulli bagh , very beautiful property with a nice restaurant in an apricot orchard would be more suitable for older people and those with mobility issues. Stok village itself is peaceful and away from the hustle bustle of Leh with grand views of the mountains and snow topped stok mountain. No wifi/ TV/ phone...this did not bother us

If you are looking for an authentic villa built using traditional Ladakhi architecture and want to stay off the beaten track outside central Leh - this place is brilliant. The service is excellent making this a great place to acclimatise or relax for those who don’t expect any WiFi or TV or soya milk. The rooms are spacious and the windows offer a nice natural cooling effect. The water pressure is a trickle but then you are living in the middle of nowhere. Hope you enjoy this place as much as we did.

The rooms are interestingly done up and a combination of old world charm with modern amenities. The location was perfectly distanced from the city, to be able to visit it but also have a quiet place to come back to. The views from the property are great and the rampart was lovely to sit out on for a few hours and watch the evening pass by. Willow cafe, by the hotel offers some amazing multi cuisine food and is located amidst apricot trees, which was a perfect setting to wind down after a two week trip before returning home.

Great staff who go out of their way to welcome you. The historical aspect of this boutique accommodation, the staff’s knowledge, a great choice of food and experiences make Stok Palace a unique place to stay in. Definitely a must if you are in Leh. Views are amazing from the terraces. Rooms design is great and cleanliness levels of high standards.

This place is amazing. Very unique and true Ladakhi experience. We stayed in the palace part. Rooms are nice. Enjoyed the dining in royal dining room and throne room. . Location is very nice. Not a typical hotel and hence not for people who would expect hotel comfort. The staff are very courteous and helpful. They did go out of the way to help us recover from our severe altitude sickness. Acclimatisation was more difficult here given the steep steps within the place. Despite this we truly enjoyed the place. Definitely a great place if you wish to steep in local culture.

A quaint property, with comfortable rooms and cheerful staff. But, be warned, it takes half-an-hour, two calls and one visit, for piped water to change from lukewarm to hot in the evening. The breakfast service is rather reluctant - with no juice, spare cutlery and insipid coffee. The restaurant serves an uninspired fixed menu dinner with brinjals and karela. The rates vary widely for the same rooms. Located rather far from Leh. Overall, it wasn't an enjoyable experience. In sum, avoidable!

Is a lovely location and fabulous view. We stayed in the royal suite which is at the top of the palace. Considering the price charged for the rooms, service could have been better. Struggled with water pressure and hot water supply. Breakfast was included in the fare but was very minimal. We were the only guests in the hotel so they could have put in some more effort in providing better food options etc.

Perfect for you if you're looking for a quiet, gorgeous place to relax and feel the calm and culture of Ladakh. An incredible place that seems to be still 'under-discovered'. Magnificient view and the rooms are reminders of a vintage era. A lovely museum and also a prayer is attached where we got to have a talk with the resident monk.

On my first visit to Ladakh I decided to stay at Stok Palace Heritage Hotel. It was the best decision I made. It is a beautiful and updated hotel. Staff is attentive and caring. Every single person working here puts their heart into doing their best. My plan was to stay there for 2-3 nights but I ended up staying there for 8 days because I felt completely at home. The food at the hotel was amazing. I had an opportunity to have Ladakhi meal at the palace as well. The best part is its location. Stok is a small village where you get to visit houses and learn about Ladakhi culture. People are very welcoming. Unlike staying in the city hotel, at Stok you feel connected to nature. Go ahead and book your stay here to have the best experience.
