Nice hotel, clean rooms with nice view if you get balcony rooms. Nice pool with good facilities for kids. Only drawback was the way to hotel, quite steep and you got to have a vehicle. And yes free wifi was missing

Manuallaya has one of the best views of Manali. The snow peaked mountains look majestic in the distance and you wake up to that amazing view. The food is great, the buffet is well balanced with vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. The staff is very friendly and helpful too. All in all, it was a great stay at this resort.

Manu allaya has the best scenic beauty of snow mountains, waterfall sound, from it's rooms than any other hotels of manali or even you may say India after you visit here. Food was super delicious specially the buffet dinner at the lawn and lunch at the kibber restaurant.
