Travellers' Choice
8,825 feet above sea level in the Pir Panjal range of the Himalayas lies a higher order of luxury. The Khyber Himalayan Resort & Spa is spread over seven unspoilt, fir-laden acres, with majestic views of the Affarwat Peaks. This 85-room resort is framed at every vantage point by nature at its most spectacular. The world’s highest ski lift, the Gulmarg Gondola – which takes you to Kongdoori Mountain, is only a short walk away. Meadows and forests that have enchanted travellers for centuries wait to be explored by trekking enthusiasts and undying romantics. Clad in locally sourced pine and slate, the resort is built in a style true to the architectural heritage of Kashmir. In every way the indoors mirror the beauty of the outdoors. Specialty restaurants, a cigar lounge are amongst the necessary luxuries in place. Add to these other thoughtful additions like our children’s club, a mini theatre and a dedicated Activities Concierge and you will find The Khyber is a resort at par with the best in the world.

I would like to give my special Thanks to Abhishek, Amir Bashir, Aliaz and Junaid, they served us with their smiling faces and politeness through out the stay.

We would like to thank everyone for the amazing Service and mention a few names that we remember. Muzamil, Junaid, Iqbal, Tanzil, Varun, Avinash, Raees and all the others. There were many more team members who really took care of us. Please convey our best wishes to all.

Our recent 2-night stay at The Khyber Himalayan Resort & Spa confirmed its reputation as the pinnacle of luxury in Kashmir. The resort boasts expansive rooms with breathtaking views, impeccable service, and a fantastic heated pool, all of which elevate the guest experience to extraordinary heights. However, while the resort excels in comfort and amenities, it falls short in integrating the natural allure of Gulmarg into its offerings. Visitors looking to engage in outdoor activities such as ATBs, skiing, or the Gondola ride will find themselves needing to arrange these externally, as the hotel does not provide these services. Despite this, the hospitality shown by staff members like Aijaz, Aamir, and Rayees in the restaurant was remarkable. Their professionalism and attentive service greatly enhanced our dining experiences and deserve special recognition. The Khyber is indeed a sanctuary of luxury, though a few more in-house outdoor services could make it truly unparalleled.

The hotel is courageous, the location is breath taken, and the food is delicious. But most important are the hotel staff, including everybody; guards, reception, porters, cleaners, back and front desk staff, security ...etc. Thank you, Mr. Irfan Rashid, who was kind enough to escort me to my room and explain about hotel facilities. I highly recommend attending the tea testing. Thank you, Mr. Tajamul. The Italian restaurant, Brava, is a must. Good food, nice decoration, and good vibes. Thank you; Mr. Varun, Mr. Aamir Javaid, Mr. Arif, Ms. Nissa, Mr. Sahil, Mr. Mumish and the kitchen team. A big THANK YOU goes to everyone in the hotel 🙏🏻😊
