Hotel in Leh

You'd need a fairly special reason to stay in the somewhat distant suburb of Skara, and this might be it: a soaring temple-styled atrium feels like a movie-set temple and some of the rooms are treehouses built into a woodland garden that's all a-twitter with birdsong.

Other rooms are large with high ceilings and a slight art deco feel, and face a central courtyard with a curious series of linking wooden walkways. Ample parking. Wi-fi is limited to certain areas of the property.
