Hotel Colonel’s Retreat Kashmir- The Ideal Destination For Leisure Travellers
After landing at the Satwari airport, we were left speechless by the unique beauty of the state. It can’t be described through words and is definitely a must visit place if you want to see heaven on earth. Since it was summer, we didn’t face any problem due to fog or any such thing. We were really excited and wanted to start our exploration but then we realized that our bodies were too tired to do so.
We had booked our stay beforehand at one of the best hotels available in the state and they had arranged for a car to pick us up outside the airport. The ride to the hotel was a great one. The roads were a bit bumpy but the beauty of the surroundings had made us go crazy. Finally, after travelling for a while, we were standing in front of the Hotel Colonel’s Retreat Kashmir. It is said to be one of the best in the business and extremely popular among travellers from different parts of the country. They greeted us with a warm welcome and took us directly to our room. It was designed in a manner to give you an idea about the age old tradition of the state.
I must say that the rooms were extremely unique in terms of design. It was tailor made for leisure travellers. We were very tired and so decided to get a good sleep and get out of the jet lag. We freshened up and didn’t realize when all of us fell asleep. I woke up after Subho, one of my children, woke me up. It was already getting dark and the beauty of the place in the lights was awesome. We were also feeling a bit hungry, so all of us got ready for a stroll in the premises of the hotel. We could feel the freshness in the air and were very impressed with the cleanliness of the roads and pavements. The local people were very interactive and helped us in gathering solid information about must visit places. We returned back early to the Hotel Colonel’s Retreat Kashmir since we didn’t want to be late for the trip planned for the next day.
