Serena Shigar Fort – Guest Comments

Professional Service

“I do appreciate my stay at this marvelous hotel. The Hospital service and beautiful environment made my stay a memorable one.”

CZECH Ambassador to Pakistan


Extremely fascinating and exciting experience

“It was extremely fascinating and exciting experience for me to visit this residence. I should also appreciate the warm hospitality of the management and staff. I will come again”

Mr. Shin Un

Ambassador of the Republic of South Korea Islamabad


Beyond Expectations

“The Phrase “handle with care” is most appropriate for a place like this. How difficult it was to unearth the beauty of this old palace, only those can appreciate who have been in this business of having a love for heritage. Recreating history is much easier task than to preserve the old page of historic interest. An effort beyond anyone’s imagination and a symbolic expression of zeal, zest and dedication.”

Oraya Malboon Jan

Director General Sustainable Development of Walled


Shigar Fort is truly Remarkable

“Many thanks to the fine staff here who gave us the warm hospitality that any hotel could offer. The restoration of the Shigar Fort is truly remarkable. Credit to the Aga Khan Foundation and all the people of Shigar who contributed. The location of fort is unbeatable, all the best.”

H.E Timothy George

Australian High Commissioner Islamabad


A Superb Restoration and a Unique Holiday Experience

“A superb restoration and a unique holiday experience – especially as a treat at the end of a tough trek from Askol to Concordia and back via Gondogoro La. Next time we will combine Shigar Fort Residence with a few nights at the new Khaplu Palace.”

Ronan MC Dcrmott & Shigo, Ireland


Perfect place to spend holidays

“It’s a perfect place to spend holidays.”
