Kash­mir, In­dia

Emirates Bride - - HONEYMOON -

Po­ets and nov­el­ists have long branded Kash­mir as “heaven on earth” and the Khy­ber Hi­malayan Re­sort & Spa el­e­vates the outof-this-world ex­pe­ri­ence in the Hi­malayan hide­out.

Worlds apart from the ba­sic wooden huts or the house­boats usu­ally spot­ted in the re­gion, that drift be­tween lilies on ethe­real Dal Lake at the foot of Pir Pan­jal, the lux­u­ri­ous re­sort is ideal for those look­ing for a ski­ing ex­pe­ri­ence like no other. Sprawl­ing across seven acres, Khy­ber houses five-star restau­rants that of­fer au­then­tic Kash­miri cur­ries and mezze, a deca­dent cigar lounge, an Ayurvedic spa and an In­sta­wor­thy heated swim­ming pool. Nes­tled in Gul­marg (Road of Roses), the ho­tel is rich with the scent of its wal­nut and teak­wood floor­ing, heav­ily em­broi­dered re­gional fab­rics and lo­cally spun silk car­pets.

Con­ve­niently lo­cated next to the world’s high­est gon­dola, guests can opt for a he­li­copter ride up to some of the most charm­ing ski slopes in the world. To know more: +91 99066 03272
