We stayed at the Retreat Cottages Log Hut Area ( Retreat cottages Aleo being a different location) from the 7th till the 13th of June. My first advice for anyone planning a trip to manali in peak season ie. May /June is that they must choose the area they stay in very carefully. Tourist Traffic in Peak season can really... More

I stayed here in April 2015. The weather was perfect - not exceedingly cold and not summery hot. The cottage is almost perfect. Food is great and the linen and bathrooms are very clean. Sitting bang on the foothills of the snow capped mountains, overlooking coniferous trees. Extremely good value for the kind of money spent. The not so good... More

I stayed in Retreat Cottages with my family between 25.5.2015 to 28.5.2015. These cottages are located in the city but slightly away from the madness of the city centre, thus providing the privacy. Our wooden duplex cottage was beautifully decorated and very well maintained. Drawing cum dining area with a kitchen was on the lower level and two bedrooms on... More

Small property but beautiful and well maintained. Our 3 room cottage was a duplex set with 2 bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, living and dining areas on the first floor and a lovely attic style seating area with a third bedroom on the 2nd floor. The cottage has large bay windows to let the sunlight and the greenery in. It... More

We would not have found a better place to stay during our holiday!! We stayed at the cottages at Aleo,which is quite near to the Mall road yet it was so peaceful amidst the apple orchards and could get a view of the snow capped mountains and dense forest from the rooms even. The cottages are very well maintained and... More

If you're looking for a place to come with family or friends and live like you're in a posh home with perfect service, amazing rooms, and complete access then this is the place to be. If you want amazing views and you wanna feel like you've come to India's Switzerland stay here and no where else
