We are repeat clients at the Divine Hima and always look forward to the next trip here. On our recent trip it was all personalized service from a welcome drink to an escorted goodbye. Our room was immaculate and surroundings most calming with well kept flowers amid stone walls. The halls decked with photos and captioned poetry by Sanjay that make your heart sing! Bonus was meeting Auntiji (Sanjay's mom) and reminiscing about our families. Did I forget to mention the delicious food with home made pickles not to be missed. It's hard work and we wish you continued success Sanjay!

If you want a bit of seclusion but at the same time like good food, personalised service, room with a view, great collection of pickles to sample from, home brewed beverages and want to experience what it is to live inside an art gallery then this place is for you!!

Sanjay mate, please thank your team for me!!

Beds and rooms are very comfortable, staff is very approachable and helpful just give them the time they need sometimes.
They have enough options on the menu for vegetarians and clean very good quality food.
Just opposite the Norbulinga Center we found the position excellent. (the walk to the house is only too long for real couch potatoes)
Sanjay the owner was a great help, after 10 days retreat in the Punjab we appreciated the quiet of the Divine Hima. We could not extend our stay there because it was booked out. Sanjay advised us in where we could go and we followed his advise and had 4 wonderful days in Bir at the Colonel's Resort.

We stayed at The Divine Hima with friends for a couple of days of getaway. We hoped to explore the surroundings by doing some hiking, visiting local cultural institutions, and to generally get a break from the often times quite intense beat of other Indian cities.

Our stay at The Divine Hima far outstripped every expectation. Everything from location of the place (right beside the wonderful Norbulingka Institute), to the rooms, the food, and the service was excellent.

The owner and the artistic director of the hotel/art gallery/café, Sanjay, deserves a special mention here. Sanjay and his team of associates made sure we really got a chance to experience the true gems of Dharamsala. With a prepared list of proposed activities and locations, we could choose what to visit according to our wishes, and Sanjay helped us plan the best possible routes and also arranged affordable transport with a local driver.

There are too many good memories from Dharamsala to mention them all, but here's a selection: visit to the Gyotu monastery with full Buddhist ceremony including incredible throat singing, the vibrant market and streets of Mcleodganj, and a mountain hike at the foot of the Himalayas with eagle sightings and tea with a local goat herder.

Also, if you do visit The Divine Hima, make sure to try Sanjay's homemade pickles! They are some of the best pickles I've ever tasted.

Thank you Sanjay and your associates for some unforgettable days in Dharamsala!

The five day stay in the hotel was serene. Mr Sanjay played the perfect host with added impressions of his photography and poetry. The rooms and the overall atmosphere of the Hima was overwhelming and calm at the same time.
