i had visited manali in feb with my wife and stayed in manu allaya, the location of the hotel was very good, we had opted for a balcony room and the view from the room was awesome, the hotel staff was very friendly. one thing i wished, the hotel should be centrally heated specially during peak winters.

Its one of the best hotels in Manali with a fantastic view ! I only had a small issue with the Wifi which I couldn't use during my stay. The food was not great though and probably they need to include more non-veg choices in the buffet. But overall it was a very pleasant experience. Overall, the rooms where very... More

We were 2 families including 4 Adults n 4 Children and stayed for 3n/ 4d from 03 Jan.This was our third visit to Manali. The location of the hotel is somewhat uphill which gives an edge to it as against other hotels. The campus is huge. We stayed in balcony rooms overlooking mountains which is breath taking.

The hotel has a very pleasant feel to it. It's welcoming & warm. We stayed in room 208, which had an excellent view. This room was in the corner, giving an even wider view. The balcony/deck was the most relaxing place - we would have our morning & evening tea here. And for the morning tea, 4/5 different types of... More
