The Khyber Himalayan Resort & Spa, Gulmarg
The Khyber Himalayan Resort & Spa in Gulmarg is located in the Pir Panjal range of the Himalayas, covering seven acres of a coniferous forest. The 85 key resort is a beautiful showcase of architectural heritage of Kashmir. Nestled in the Himalayas, 8,825 feet above sea level and ensconced amidst pristine nature, The Khyber Spa by L’Occitane offers luxurious and holistic well-being experiences.
Guests can soak in stunning views from their treatment room and pamper themselves with treatment protocols that incorporate the best of the west and the east. The spa brings to life the changing seasons of Gulmarg with signature treatments where guests are encouraged to choose from a repertoire of home grown seasonal flora which are mixed with natural L’Occitane products and fresh Himalayan water to create fusion recipes for the treatment. Treatments include Deep Tissue Intense Relief, Shea Nourishing Scrub, Revitalizing Aromachologie Massage, Re-Energizing Sun Stones, Signature Lemon Balm-Sandal Wrap, Almond Silhouette Reshape, Area-Focused Treatments, etc. The well-being baths provides a relaxing prelude or finale that leaves the skin and the mind perfectly prepared and truly receptive to the benefits of a treatment.
The resort also has a well equipped gymnasium, and the stunning views from the floor-to-ceiling glazed windows ensure that the guests never miss a moment of the surroundings. There are separate sauna and steam facilities as well as jacuzzis for ladies and gents. The heated indoor swimming pool area has double-height windows, and a swim is particularly magical when there are blankets of snow outside.
There are many invigorating activities for guests – the Gulmarg Gondola is only minutes away, making The Khyber a ski in–ski out resort. The property is also a great starting point for treks and walks.
