About the Property:
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 and heavenly views of the Himalayan Peaks.
A world away from the ordinary, Khyber 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. Speciality restaurants, a Sheesha lounge, a well-appointed spa and a heated swimming pool 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.

NOUF – Roof top Dining:
Our deep, covered deck has views from every direction and is a lovely spot for guests to converge and relax over casual dining. In the evenings, the fragrance of pine from the forest mingles with aromas of freshly grilled meats, cooked just the way you like on traditional coal-fired barbecues. Nouf is ideal for catching a few rays by day, stargazing by night, reading, dozing or just partying with friends and family.
Chaikash – Tea lounge:
Named after the Kashmiri word for soaked tea leaves, Chaikash is a space as refined as the chais, coffees, tisanes and kahwah that may be enjoyed here. Our Tea Lounge and Terrace is part elegant patisserie, part private club and wholly irresistible. Enjoy serene views, delectable finger food, and tea the way it is drunk in Kashmir – and well beyond. The Tea Lounge opens on to a terrace which flows further down to a series of cascading terraces, ideal for al fresco dining and mountain-gazing. An abundance of fire pits add warmth and charm to every level.
Calabash – Sheesha lounge:
Calabash, our sheesha lounge, has fine carpets and seating, designed to invigorate lounging for hours on end and floor-length windows that look out to forests of fir and the Himalayas. This is indeed, a cosy nook, which stimulates you to share your trekking tales and skiing stories.
