We spent 3 nights in a 3 bedroom Retreat Cottage, Aleo from 13th-16th Dec. The moment we entered the cottage, we were overwhelmed by its beauty and cleanliness. Outside view of snow-clad mountains from the cottage was also great. At that moment, we knew that we were at the perfect place. Our package included breakfast and dinner in the cottage... More

Some time we ordered our food n some time we prepared our own. The view from rooms was great. Rooms were so well furnished and cosy.... More

One and a half month have passed but I still feel the warm glow on the face of my son when he plucked an apple right from a tree in the lawn, I still hear in my ears the chirping sound of mynah and the soft whisper of winds blowing through the curtains of the bedroom… Even today I yearn... More

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

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
