#3 of 20 hotels in Gulmarg
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.

An out of the world property facing Gulmarg Snow capped peaks . The inside of the hotel is luxurious and staffed with friendly employees. We have booked in a Himalaya facing room and we can actually see the peaks from our bed !! The serenity of Gulmarg along with the Khyber resorts will make your visit a memorable one

There breakfast starts at 8 AM in the morning . However we wanted our breakfast at 7 AM because we had a flight to catch. We had informed the management about this in the night itself and they had promised us breakfast at 7 AM. However, once we went to the restaurant at 7:15 AM for breakfast, some lower staff behaved very rudely and asked us not to have breakfast before 8 AM. He said he has no information about early breakfast. Highly disappointed with Kyber. Food is also mediocre , not a class like other 5 star resort spas. Guys working here are inexperienced and highly unprofessional , low in their behaviour . Not a Kashmiri pride at all. Please stay in some other resorts in Gulmarg . This kyber resort is not worth the money and connect. It is absolute crap.

We were at Khyber from 6th - 9th October and had an overall pleasant experience at the hotel. The service was fantastic, particularly the staff that took care of in room dining and the restaurant staff. The hospitality is fabulous. We were taken care of quite well particularly by Mr. Irfan Husain. My aunt had a fall and fractured her wrist - the hotel staff went beyond the call of duty to ensure that she was comfortable - they arranged for quick transport to the nearest hospital as well as had their resident doctor come and check on my aunt regularly. The entire staff asked after her health constantly - truly one experiences the beauty, kindness, selflessness, hospitality and goodness of Kashmir!!!. The restaurant staff and the chef paid a great deal of attention to all my meals as I have diary and gluten allergy - the chef personally curated and prepared my food - which was excellent. The yellow dal and guchi pulao are one of the best meals I have had. They made fresh almond milk and vegetable juices for me for breakfast. It was a disappointment that the pool was shut due to covid. The gym is fantastic. I think the hotel would be more stunning and value for money in winter when it is covered by snow.

Dear Sir/Madam, We'd like to compliment a few of your staff members - Aamir, Firdaus, Abdul, Aijaz, Waseem, Irfan at Cloves and Deepali and Imtiaz at the for the excellent service that they provided us during our 5 night stay at the Khyber. Right from the moment we entered the hotel, we were greeted with ear-to-ear wide smiles from the staff that already made us feel at home. All the staff members at Cloves recommended some of the best dishes to us and went out of their way to ensure we had the most delectable meal. What impressed us the most was their attention to detail as we saw them take extra efforts to ensure that the table was clean and that we were hydrated properly by filling the glasses with water every time they felt that they needed to be refilled and bring us fresh hot food refills from the kitchen at regular intervals. Since it was our anniversary holiday, they even decorated the room for us. We had heard a lot of amazing reviews about Khyber. However, the warmth, affection, and hospitality showed by your staff in addition to the fabulous meals and spa experience that we had truly exceeded our expectations and made our experience even better. Such a commitment to customer service is to be commended. You can rest assured that we will be frequenting Khyber very often. 
 (We had a few additional waiters at the table serving us but we were unable to thank them on our way out as they had left for delivery. Please do convey our heartfelt gratitude to every single member of the team) From the location to the service to the hospitality to the cleanliness to the hygience to the kindness - All in all, it was hands down one of our best trips. Your happiest customers, Priyanka Shah and Rahil Shah.
