Gorgeous infrastructure with excellent ambience. Staff hospitality at its finest and very much welcoming. Amazing Experience! Recommended to all my friends and family. Scenic beauty of nature added more to the spectacular atmosphere created by the Staff. Perfect for anyone who feels the desire to be in Nature's lap yet in their own comfort. Perfect!

Stayed with family during the week of Holi for 5 nights for a ski holiday. Visited last year during the same time as well. Nothing has changed from our last visit. Getting to and fro to the hotel is a nightmare! After a long day of skiing this is extremely stressful. The ski storage room has been made much smaller...

The hotel is outstanding, with great facilities and an incomparable view of the mountains. The decor is tastefully done up. The big let down is the service. From room service to the cafeteria to the kids room, everything requires multiple reminders and follow-ups from guests. Else the staff just doesn't seem bothered. This is in stark contrast to the warm...

Value for money - not worth Rs 23,000 per night. This is what I paid in April 2017. This is a 5 star hotel but they do not operate by the ethos of a 5 star property. It would be better stay at a 2-3 star hotel and not expect any service than staying here and paying more than 5x...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
