The hotel will be located in Kangra Valley, 2400 meters above the sea level. The property will be situated in a picturesque place with the Himalayan Mountains and beautiful forests surrounding it. The hotel plans to attract visitors by its health programs and the key role here will play a large 2,500 sq. m Spa center specializing in Ayurvedic procedures.

The owner of the property is Kamakhya Hospitality Services Pvt. Ltd. The company tries to use the maximum of local materials in the production of this hotel. When it starts operating, the energy will be produced using wind, hydro, and solar power. The fruit and vegetables for the hotel will be grown in the organic farms nearby.
