“Actually stayed in 'True Leh'”
Reviewed 31 July 2011

I was there for 5 nights with my wife to celebrate my first anniversary. First word when we entered the room was 'Beautiful' . The cherry on cake 'Mr.Lotus' who owns and manages this place. Let me rate it more specifically:
1. LOCATION - Away from the city, we didn't mind because that was the idea, beautiful location
2. ROOMS - Are actually Huts, which might look ordinary from outside but is really beautiful from inside with attached bath and good facilities in the room including a 40'inch LCD with TATA sky.
3 FOOD - I am not exaggerating but the food was superb, surprisingly in a place like Leh, where you won't get good food in the city restaurants, food in this hotel was really very very hygenic and tasty.
4. STAFF - Really very helpful and humble, pure pahadi attitude which makes you feel what sort of people we are missing in cities. Especially Mr.Lotus was really helpful throughout. He was very effortlessly humble and helpful, really appreciate all of them and thankful too.
ALSO attaching photos of the HUT i stayed in with surroundings, hope it's helpful to all.

Room Tip: ask for rooms which are on the lower deck they are better and have really good huts

I with my friends( a group of 15 pax )went to this resort and spent 3 nites and had a real great time, u name anything u ll get in this resort. Excellent food - south/north/italian any kind of food was served tasty. Hospitality was world class, owner Mr. Rigzin was very very helpful and always kind enough to help us in the middle of the nite when 1 of our friend got sick, he personally took us to hospital and helped us with his contacts @ hospital.
Staff were very helpful and cooperative.
I definetly recommend this resort and would love to visit this place in future. While im writing this i still breath the freshness of my visit and cant forget each and every moment i spent @ this resort.

My wife and myself stayed at Ladakh Sarai -Saboo for our honeymoon. It was really great and the best of all that I like was their hospitality. Starting from the manager to the housekeepers everyone was helpful and super friendly, something I have never seen in any hotel. The location is a great place to begin with. And the food was extremely delightful. One aspect which bothered my wife was that the power goes off during the daytime and will be available from evening. But you still get plenty of hot water coz they use solar panels.
I was happy though, coz I always wanted to engage with the nature and wanted to stay away from technology.
I would definitely recommend this for someone who enjoys nature/ newly wed couples or some one with grownup kids..
This was a perfect vacation!!

Room Tip: Feel free to ask the manager (

Ladakh Sarai is the perfect getaway for those who wish to stay within a short distance from Leh Town and yet be away from the hustle and bustle / traffic. The hotel is an Eco-Compatible resort, naturally merging with the surroundings , providing a beautiful view of the Snow-clad mountains.
The owner of the resort Mr. Rigzin Namgyal is a very proactive and hands on person, easily accessible for the guests at all times. Mr.Lotus is a resourceful person who looks after the guests and Mr. Gobind is very versatile in the catering food & drinks to the guests. The food served i.e. breakfast, lunch & dinner was simply superb and pan Indian. It had south Indian specialities like Upma, Kandha Poha, North Indian items like Roti, Chapathi, Dhaal, Chaval and even Italian Pizza, pasta and Ladakh cuisine like Momos, Butter Tea,Noodles and varied desserts.
Our stay during June (22nd To 28th), 2011 was fantastic and the local sight seeing trips such as Leh town Sightseeing, Pangong Lake visit, Nubra valley stay, Magnetic hill and rafting in Indus river, were well planned & arranged by Mr. Rigzin.

Overall we would rate the resort very very high with regard to food, accommodation, comfort & service. If at all if there is any grievance, it would be the frequent & prolonged break down in power supply to Leh town in general. Mr. Rigzin is advised to go in for a standby Generator at the earliest to make the resort impeccable.The resort is comparable with many international chain of resorts we have visited in Kenya, Tanzania,Egypt, Maldives, Mauritius, Australia & New Zealand & Europe

The experience of stay with the nature in the tent is excellent. On top of that very friendly staff which serves you form Indian to continental cuisines, which not only excites you but the kids.
Friendly owner Rigzin is always there to greet and treat you.

Room Tip: During summer get the tent near tree
