One Word.. Just Awesome!
I was planning my family trip to Himachal Pradesh (Dalhousie/Khajiar etc)
Searching on the internet i ran across their website http://jamwalvilla.com, send them an email about my proposed HP trip, was pretty much surprised to receive their detailed reply
Mr Manish Jamwal of Jamwal Villa in email was very detailed and thorough with all of my questions, he designed my trip itenary and recommended me 2-3 options
3 quick email exchanges and 1 phone call later, i had my trip booked (including bookings at dalhousie/khajiar and all taxi arrangements) which include (of course) wonderful 2 night stay at Jamwal Villa Chamba
After spending 5 nights in hustle crowded Dalhousie and Khajiar, i needed a quiet place to relax
Jamwal Villa is perfect place , its about 7 kms of Chamba town (@Village Mehla) and the wonderful Jamwal family welcome us with lot of smile. We never felt we are in a hotel,its a perfect homely atmosphere
They have a lovely garden full of beatiful animals like pigeons, parrots, rabbits, ducks etc. My daughter keeps them busy :-) and she enjoyed a lot
and the BEST of the lot is their FOOD which is just fantastic, served in typical Chamba homely atmosphere, nowhere you will feel you are in a hotel
If you are a non-veggie, enjoy the "Khatta Meat". We certainly enjoyed it.
Mr Manish/Family was a delighful host talking to us, spending time with us explaining the place/surroundings, made our local taxi sightseeing arrangements
Again whevener i am in HP - i will surely again visit this wonderful homestay

While, first we were apprehensive about our very first home stay... but indeed the owners go with their words / commitment towards hospitality... one always feel that they are in one of their relatives home...

for obvious reasons pls do not look for any star rated facilities, but at last you will only be appreciating the efforts put in by the owners (Jamwal Family) in developing the homestay... the best part is the landscape developed by them where the kids can enjoy with presence of rabbit, duck, birds and a lovable dog...

The food prepared by the owners is also worth a try and one is going to feel the homely touch in the same...

To enjoy your stay more, pls try early morning trek to the river side and other nearby areas... the family extend all required support the same...

Rooms are spacious, bed linen and mattress quality is good... however, management may take a call to improve upon the bath towel

While, the location is a little off way (7-8 KMs from Chamba), but it is all worth to stay at such a natural place (nearby a river and mountains all across)...

If you are driving for the first time on the hills, the approach road to the hotel may scare you - as it is quite narrow and only one vehicle can pass through it, but it is also an adventure in its own way... the other thing which may trouble you is presence of spiders etc., but being a home stay in nature, all this is expected

The best part was enjoying the breakfast in the open area with river view...

All thanks to Jamwal Family and we wish all the best in their journey...

Surely plan a 2-3 days stay at the homestay in near future...

Firstly, words just cannot describe the inner and outer beauty of this place. still here goes. The most gracious and welcoming hosts, the ever respectful Mr. Jamwal and his family, welcomed us into their home and Hearts with warmth. The simplicity and the sheer beauty of their home just cannot be described. They have a very colourful garden, filled with varied flowers and fruits! Thats right! The rawness of Nature is everywhere and its ...its just pure. The room was very cozy and comfortable, filled with charming furniture and accents, with all amenities you could ever wish for. A special mention of Uncleji, who was so gracious as to serve us with whatever that needed to be served. Thank you, Uncleji. OK, the view is something that is just right out of a beautiful imagination. The ferocious yet magical river, the Snow peaked and the heavily forested Mountains, the Trees and the sweet songs of the birds. May God truly Bless you, Mr.Jamwal and family, for welcoming us. Thank you, truely, Sir. The authentic and delicious local food and delicacies they served us was very wholesome yet exciting. The beautiful walk down to the river was enchanting. And amazing.

I've been meaning to write a review about this place, ever since i experienced the sheer beauty and peace that it has to offer. So greatly has the phantasmagoria of the mountains, the river, the rocks, the cottages etched itself in me, that i literally never wanted to leave. It started with the great reviews on tripadvisor....and since ours was a week long trip to dalhousie khajjiar and dharamshala, i thought of giving this place a try, albeit for one night. I was both glad and sad about that choice...glad coz we did make it here...and boy was it worth it! and sad coz we couldnt stay longer.

Starting off with what strikes you the most....the warm, cosy, homely feel that the beautiful family (and i mean this literally and figuratively.....coz they are stunning people...especially the hostess....Mrs. Jamwal) brings to the place. The whole set up is very tasteful, close to nature and just the thing you need to unwind. All the elements you look for in a holiday....the mountains, the river, hammocks, swings, a comfy room...this place is a one stop shop. I categorically remember the evening spent lazily lounging around the hammock, just staring into the nothingness of the mountains above...until it was dark and dim lights began to flicker from the cottages....THAT was something! I really got me thinking....what precisely do we city bums get out of life??? Life was right here! It crackled, murmured, moaned and dispersed, all in a flash.

And then, there was the FOOD! We had not expected such a mouth watering display of local delicacies... It was an authentic affair....with some really amazing dishes prepared by the hosts (a special vote of thanks to auntyji for the lovely khamiri puris and the kasrod ka achaar.... it was my personal favourite). Mrs. Jamwal made for excellent company at the dinner table, walking us through the local customs and her life there, as we saw it...

The room reminded me of my own bedroom back home...clean and very homely. The interiors were almost entirely handpicked by Mr. Jamwal, who, we learnt, is an extremely creative person. Kudos to his marvelous effforts, that we have a place like this....

A stone's throw away is the river, gushing its way through the rocky landscapes below...making for a soothing sight. We enjoyed chilling alongside the river, in the evening. The locals are friendly, beautiful and very interesting. i particularly enjoyed observing how they went about their routine, their peculiar, rustic ways.

The climate was the icing on the cake.... although it was quite sunny on the day we reached, it rained early the next day, magically transforming the weather into just the kind that one looks forward too... it was cool and breezy....totally awesome!

Glady (i am afraid i am misspelling the name), the pet dog is so cute and friendly...! He loves cuddling, jumping at you....and the works! the rabbits, the ducks and the caged smaller birds make for an endearing sight too!

All in all, this is an experience you do not want to miss... We left with a heavy heart, promising Mr. Jamwal and ourselves, that we would be coming back soon...and this time...for a longer duration, so that we may take in the entirety of what the place has to offer. According to Mr. Jamwal, there are some excellent trekking options and scenic spots nearby, that would make for great outings.

We are definitely going back there. Soon! :)
