Stok Palace, Leh
Royal living, withstanding modernity, tradition, environment & time
The four-storied building is stately on the outside and mysterious inside, its shaded corridors and courtyards lead you into beautifully colourful spaces. Perched majestically on top of a ridge, the palace offers breath-taking views of the Indus valley from many of the rooms.
The palace exudes its traditional charm with low doorways and enigmatic corridors and affords the simple luxury of a comfortable bed, well furnished suites and elegant en-suite bathrooms. The suites are located on different levels of the palace. There are 4 Standard Suite Rooms, The Royal Suite and The Queen’s Room to choose from.
FACILITIES & THINGS TO DO
Please note that they do not have WiFi, TVs air-conditioning or intercoms in their rooms. They also discourage the use of plastic and hence are reluctant to provide plastic packaged drinking water to the guests. They do instead have drinking water available in glass bottles which is completely without charge.
The Queen's Room
The most exclusive and most favoured room, it gives one the feeling of being enclosed in history with the gorgeously adorned walls. Recreated to resemble the Queen’s quarters with curios and photographs. The balcony overlooking the Indus valley is another highlight of this suite.
The Royal Suite
Mysterious corridors and hallways lead you to this spectacular suite which also houses some of the museum’s artefacts. A colorful and lavishly appointed room with a wooden balcony that open up to the palace courtyard and the valley beyond.
Chulli Bagh Villas
Set amidst old apricot (Chulli in Ladakhi), walnut and willow trees, guests can enjoy apricot blossoms in the month of April, mesmerising autumn colours in October, a quaint dinner setting with wood-fire under a star studded sky, or experience the ethereal moon light lying on the hammocks, nature at its best. These villas are at a 7-10 minute walk from the palace.
