Recommended and Best Hotels in Spiti Valley

by Vargis.Khan

Where to stay in Spiti and best hotels is one of the most frequent questions I get asked so thought to put together this information on one page. Below is a list of some good hotels in Spiti valley; actually on the entire circuit. Name and feedback was provided by other fellow travelers who went to the region and were kind enough to share feedback.

Recommended and Best Hotels in Spiti

Hotels at Kalpa
  • Hotel Rakpa Regency – Contact person is Rajkumar @ 080453255038. Room rent is around 800 (whatever he say just bring him down to 800 bucks). They have hotels in Chitkul , Nako as well (rate same . ask rajkumar to call Mr. Negi at Nako )
  • Kinner VillaClean, comfortable, well located and great view of Kinner Kailash. Little expensive for facilities provided.
  • Hotel Parvati – Great place to stay with a great view
Hotels at Kaza
  • Hotel Delek House – Contact Person, Shirling @ 094597 03488
  • Hotel Deyzor – An excellent place, and the food is incredible (even grown in their own greenhouse). Well located, with good amenities, and high attention to detail. Karan, the proprietor, is a great guy & friend.
  • Hotel Spiti Valley – Owned by Mr. Tanzin Rabgay and is located right opposite Kaza Monastery. Very awesome host and very friendly guy. Highly recommended to everyone visiting Kaza. His phone number is 9418927312
Hotels at Rampur
  • HPTDC Bushar Residency – Clean & reasonable.
Hotels at Chitkul
  • Samaa Resorts – Run by a warm couple. Very nice location, good food, homely feel.
Hotels at Nako
  • Kinner Camps – Swiss tents. Great location (above lake and near viewpoint), good food. Can spend time with Sangha the friendly Tibetan Mastiff.
Hotels at Tabo
  • Tashi Khangsar (same owner as Tiger’s Den). Clean, comfortable, good lawn & location (behind town center and monastery, but not on main road either).
Camps at Chandratal
  • Jamaica’s Camps. Best place to stay at Chandratal. Other camp sites may have slightly better tents but they have no idea on how to treat their guests. People staying at some other camp sites were complaining of bad food and other problems. One camp site owner was even so drunk that he did not cook for his guests at all. At Jamaica however, you will be treated royally and will remember the evening spent.
  • Parasol Tents – If staying at Jamaica’s did not work and he was completely full then you can try Parasol Camps. Nice hospitality and food. Bishen, the proprietor, is a warm & humorous host.

These are just a few to mention. I will continue updating the list as I receive feedback from other travelers. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask in the comments section below; or at our Community Forum and I will be glad to answer.

Kinner at Nako is hardly ‘Swiss tents’ – it’s a regular tent, low for anyone more than 5’, with a very poorly setup toilet and bath. Very cement, with leaking sink. The compound of the property looks like a dump with random plastic, wire fences, bottles etc strewn all over. We stayed on our way back from Kaza, they had just completed setting up our tents anew, it was dusty and the toilets of both our tents were simply terrible. Don’t recommend staying there, though Ramesh and the other staff are quite wonderful. The owner hasn’t taken a look at his ‘Swiss tents’ for sometime obviously.

Ankur Bansal July 5, 2019 - 12:56 am

Hi Vargis, I am planning spiti circuit in last week of July 19. Me and my wife do we need to book for chandraral camps beforehand or can it be booked just after reaching there.
July is monsoon season and chances of landslide and as recommended we will be having one buffer day. What about advance booking at Manali or nako or mud village. What do you recommend.

Vargis.Khan July 5, 2019 - 1:10 pm

Hi Ankur,

You will accommodation on the spot in Spiti and Chandratal as well. You may want to book at other places en route though.

Is this tour plan too hectic?

Vargis.Khan May 28, 2019 - 12:09 pm

No it is not hectic.
When you are in Kaza and if the road to Manali is open, you can exit that way as well rather than coming back to Shimla.
