Katra, Jammu and Kashmir, is the location for Marriott International’s landmark 150th location in India. The location is especially significant as it lies at the base of the Trikuta Mountains and near Vaishno Devi, a holy Hindu shrine. The Katra Marriott Resort & Spa aims to target pilgrims and visitors to the holy destination looking for a premium luxury experience.

Katra Marriott Resort & Spa’s prime location is one of the biggest advantages of booking a stay there. Located only 50km from Jammu airport and a little over 200km from Srinagar Airport, it is fully accessible for travellers. Nestled between hills, the views of Vaishno Devi, Mansar Lake, Krimchi Temple, and other local attractions are unparalleled. Katra Marriott Resort & Spa is also a stone’s throw from the local Katra markets, an added benefit for those who wish to experience Katra’s local cuisine, art, and culture.

The Katra Marriott Resort & Spa is truly the epitome of indulgence and luxury. Featuring 100 luxury guest rooms, the Quan Spa with five therapy rooms, yoga sessions, guided walks, high-tea, a Kid’s Club, fully-equipped fitness centre, and a blend of local and international vegetarian cuisine, can be found at Katra. From mandala-themed benches to ancient inscriptions, there is no doubt that Marriott is leaning into the spiritual energy of the location to provide its guests with a mystic healing experience.

It is evident that Marriott India is ready for more expansions and advancements, with more hotels in the pipeline for the international giant. Until then, guests can immerse themselves into Jammu and Kashmir’s unique cultural and spiritual landscape with a stay at Katra Marriott Resort & Spa.
