The staff made my visit one I’d never forget. Anamika was very welcoming and made my stay her personal mission to be great. Her recommendations advice and attention to my desires were met with the highest respect. I definitely recommend the Yak & Yeti for any travel need. They offer a personalized experience at the travel desk and spa. They offer space for events personal or professional. On site dining consists of bar, buffet and fine dining. Enjoy your stay! I did!!

8/10 Very good

Yak and Yeti would be so much better if they -like good hotels around the world - would adopt 'green' policies. Give guests the option to NOT have bedsheets changed every day. And PLEASE have an alternative to using so many plastic water bottles! This has to end for guests to not feel guilty about their excessive use of plastic while staying there. Every thing else was great, appreciated the design and aesthetics in the building.
