The service of the staff is so good that it's impeccable. I stayed about 4 days here in October and cried on my way out, the staffs at the hotel for house keeping, butler, the service staff at the breakfast buffet area made us feel at home all the time.

We stayed at The Monk in Kalpa around the end of October 2016. In one word, the stay is described as A-W-E-S-O-M-E. Mr Rawat - you are an exceptional host and are always taking the extra step to keep the guests comfortable. Your specialty is not just the amazing "Apple Curry" or the "Apple Paratha" or the "Apple Kheer" delicacies,...

Our stay at 'The Monk' in Kalpa was splendid. The staff was very hospitable. The location of the property was surreal. Thanks to Mr. Rawat and his team, we enjoyed our stay thouroughly. The only negative was the food, which could have been a bit better. Overall,we really loved our trip to Kalpa.

If you want a memorable experience stay at The Monk (in the apple farm, there is a lodge too). Everything is Super. Care extended by Rawat ji, his food, the location of the property, the cleanliness and uniqueness of the tents, mud houses etc..etc..

Recently we have visited kalpa and stayed in the monk tent. It was a fabulous experience. Thanks to Mr. Rawat and his team to feel us in a home away from home. In future we will again visit this place where we can meet with God .

We stayed in a tent at The Monk and we were not disappointed. The owner and staff are friendly and very helpful. The view of Kinner Kailash range and the Shivling from the tents is spectacular. This place deserves all the accolades it's been getting and I hope they keep it going. Food is simple, but very nice. Thank you...
