Typical client reviews

Living like a king!

After a challenging journey through Manali and Ladakh, I treated myself to the Queen's Room—an experience fit for Ladakhi royalty. The bed, modern and comfy, offered the perfect retreat. The 'terrazza' unveiled breathtaking views of the valley and peaks, creating a serene backdrop. The washroom, modern and tidy, added to the comfort. The food was excellent, and at dawn, I joined the morning prayers serenaded by a local monk.

Royal treatment at Stok Palace

Feeling like royalty here is an understatement. The vibes are unmatched, with the palace's beauty and layout stealing the show. Picture this: rooms scattered amidst the museum, providing a 360° view, and a sensation of time-travel to the glorious past. Service is top-notch, prompt and accompanied by genuine smiles. The team is just lovely, and let's not even get started on the food, it's downright impeccable. Already planning to return for a lengthier stay. Can't wait!
