We are Mr & Mrs. Saklani from Palampur, Himachal Pradesh, India. We run a Holiday Home, which is registered with Himachal Tourism as a hotel and complies with all the standards, rules & regulations of a hotel. However, we prefer to call it a “Holiday Home” rather than a hotel, since we live here too and we take great pleasure in looking after our house guests personally. I, Thakur Sher Singh Saklani, am a 1965 and 1971 Naval war veteran and later joined the Merchant Navy. My combined Naval career spanned over 35 years with numerous port of calls around the world, many times over. Shakuntala, my wife, also had the opportunity to accompany me on worldwide voyages for five years, which have been most memorable. Together, we raised a family of three children, who are married and settled in their respective lives. Two of our children live abroad and one in India.
Back to our roots in picturesque Palampur, we first offered the spare accommodation of our large family home to the visitors and latter added an additional wing, set in the secluded, quiet and scenic setting of a forested ridge on our land, facing the majestic Trans- Himalayas. We run our home with the help of our foster family whom we adopt, train and make efficient and employable. And of course, our Headmistress Shakuntala Ji keeps us all on our toes. We simply like receiving interesting people and entertaining them. We welcome you, your families and friends to our home on your holidays to Palampur. We offer you a “home away from home” with the efficiency and cleanliness of a well run hotel. And indeed freshly made, healthy & tasty home-made food and personal care. We are always ready to offer local assistance for your excursions and sightseeing programmes.
Looking forward to receive you,
Mr & Mrs. Saklani.
