About Hotel

Owner Holiday Home Palampur


I, Thakur Sher Saklani and my wife Shakutala welcome you to the website of our home in Palampur, Himachal Pradesh – India. Holiday Home is registered with the 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 take great pleasure in looking after our house guests personally.

I am a 1965 and 1971 Naval war veteran and latter joined merchant Navy. My combined Naval career spans thirty 35 years & numerous port of calls around the world many times over. Shakuntala also had opportunity to accompany me on world voyages for five years, which have been most memorable ones.

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 forested ridge on our land holding facing great Trans- Himalayas.

We run our home with help of our foster family whom we adopt, train and make efficient and employable. And of course our Headmistress Shakuntala Jee 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

Thakur Sher Saklani & Shakuntala Saklani
