Situated at a motorable distance of 65 km from Srinagar Airport, The Khyber Himalayan Resort & Spa is a sprawling estate that is perched above the ordinary.
Surrender to an unrivalled all-season experience at The Khyber and witness the valley undergoing metamorphosis. Summers are lush with green meadows and the brightest blooms, while fall will have you enveloped in splendid sepia hues and autumnal skies. But nothing prepares you for the spectacle, that is a snowed in Gulmarg. An experience so sublime, that one is almost disappointed when a gorgeous spring finally arrives, bathing the entire region in a brilliant shade of lavender.
As custodians of a land whose striking external beauty is the stuff of folklore and romantic poetry, we want the world to know that what one sees in the valley is only a fraction of what lies beneath. We have built the Khyber as a microcosm of all things Kashmir – which translates into us preserving its heritage in meaningful ways. Khatambandi ceilings, remarkable expressions in wood and stonework, and landscaping that is reminiscent of the state’s fabled gardens – our honest homage to the unique architecture of Kashmir is felt as soon as you walk in.
At Khyber, we curate every detail of a cherished heritage that contributes to Kashmir’s moniker of “Jannat” or heaven on earth. Journey with us to discover a Kashmir beyond the obvious via the hotel's extensive art collection, a stunning display of photographs, textiles that capture the colors and complexities of the land, and culinary masterpieces that have been crafted out of family recipes.
Guests and members at Khyber experience familiar destinations in a whole new way through the insider expertise of our sophisticated hoteliers whose passion for hospitality is obvious in tangible and intangible ways. The service is discreet and unobtrusive, but available at a distance when you want your privacy.
Think world-class hospitality that is polished, professional, and warm, but never stuffy – with a dash of beguiling Kashmiri informality.
