Planned a family trip to Manali and stayed there for 3 nights. I would recommend to all that whenever they visit Manali just plan your stay at Manu Allaya. Amazing hotel, rooms, view, services and especially the hotel staff was an extra top up. Will plan a tour soon. 👍

This Hotel is best stay one could have in Manali. Staff is Humble & Co-operative. Rooms are Clean and spacious. View from the room is breathtaking. Food is yum. Though there should be more options for Dessert. I would definitely recommend this Hotel to anyone who visits Manali.

Great experience, good hotel and good food. Overall the experience was great considering an official get together. The location is good and surroundings are scenic. The food served was good, but advice to have steam rice plain at all times and also Yellow Dal (Dal was always black) to go with the right variety.
