About Hotel Sakya Abode
Sakya Abode Kaza – Spiti Valley is one such place I love most that every time I am in Kaza, I stay only with Sakya Abode or Sakya Homestay or Snow Lion or Kumphen. All of them run by a gem of a person named Tsering who not only believes in cultural values of Spiti but respect the environment, tourism, and concern about doing his bit for local society, equally. Spiti Valley has its headquarters in Kaza and due to which it has a varied number of hotels or guest houses or home stays suiting to various budgeting needs. However, what makes Sakya Abode Kaza so special is that it is value for money, the locals running it are concern about their surroundings & respects it and above all the warmest of hospitality, you will receive from Tsering and his staff including motu bhai.
As you reach Kaza, keep going straight on Kaza – Losar road. Just before the Sakya Tangyud Monastery or Kaza Petrol pump, Sakya Abode lies on the road towards left. The Kumphen lies in the complex of Sakya Tangyud Monastery and Snow Lion comes first, left on the road as you are moving towards Monastery before crossing the bridge over the stream. Sakya Abode and Snow Lion are opposite of each other with water stream separating them.
I have always loved the way the dining of Sakya Abode has been setup and wonderfully done giving it to an extent a feel of an authentic Himalayan dining room of Spiti. There is a small setup of Internet Cafe too in the dining room itself. The market is also within walking distance if you know the right shortcuts, else by road you need to take your car.
Rooms in the guest house are small, basic YET quite comfortable, nice, very cozy and of course, very clean. The best thing was at such a remote location you are getting such kind of homely experience, which is a kind of luxury in itself for a person like me. Rooms are small (but can fit 3 people) with attached bathroom having hot water supply and on request room heaters can be arranged.
If somehow you could not get booking or room at Sakya Abode or his Home stay or Kumphen then first three rooms of Snow Lion (branch of Sakya Abode) are much cosy than other rooms, so prefer them over others.
In the case of Sakya Home Stay, you will need to come down to restaurant or dining room of Snow Lion Hotel for food. The quality of food is quite good and homely. The cook, especially at Sakya Abode Kaza, has a great gift to cook some delicious food. I loved the food there and in fact, we had food always in the hotel itself, sharing some gup-shups with Motu bhai or Tsering bhai. Motu bhai is just a call away and will always be present for you to take care of anything required, a bit shy but very helpful
An ample garden or lawn space is also present in Sakya Abode, good to bask in the sun on a cold day and read some good books they have available for reading in their hotels.
