“A memorable family holiday ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

As the title says it all, it was indeed a memorable & wonderful holiday for us as a family. I had heard enough about this property & the services they provide but what helped me make up my mind was its location. It is situated approx.14 kms. before the town of Manali in calm & serene surroundings. The main attraction for me was the proximity to the Beas river. It is flowing right next to the resort with a private access to the clean & fast flowing waters. Perching on one of the big boulders on the river & letting the mind go adrift, well, that really cleansed my mind & soul. The service is good & the food excellent.
And how can I forget the smiling face of the restaurant service manager Mr. Hari, who did everything to make us feel at home.
Would love to go there again.

I stayed at Span Resorts in first week of July 2014. I had heard a lot about the property and so already expected it to be good but was still spellbound when I reached there. The rooms are furnished and set up beautifully. The resort in itself is a treat given the lush green gardens full of trees, ideal sitting spots next to the magnificent river beas. There are plenty of acitvities you can enjoy with family and the staff too is extremely courteous.

A perfect place for people who are looking to have a peaceful, laidback vacation admiring the views from the hammock.

Stayed at the span resorts & spa in july 2014 & simply loved the location of the Resort . The room was spacious & luxurious. The pool was heavenly. By far one of the best Resort we have stayed in India. Would definitely recommend staying at span resorts & spa on your next visit to manali.
The best part of the stay we felt was the interaction with their room service staff. There was always a smile, and even a few calls to check how our stay was. Restaurant had a good selection of food - buffet with wide selection of veg and non veg food. The Food was also upto the mark and had enough choices available the best of the lot was the morning breakfast specially the breads which were perhaps baked in house . We found the food simply delicious.. do try the pasta bar, just couldn't get enough of it. (I still dream about it!

Room Tip: river face (114,115)

We Loved staying at span resorts & spa because it delivered what it promised ! The Rooms were lovely large spacious and the resort graciously provided accommodation for my maid as well. They were airy and well lit and we had a lovely view of the river and hills . It was lovely to wake up to a mellow sunrise on the hills. Special mention needs to be made of the executive chef who went out of the way to ensure that we get the type of food we wanted. The chefs were both responsive when it came to ordering for my 2 year old's son meals. The personally ensured that the food was customized as per our instructions. Meals were plentiful with a wide variety for adults and children. the staff were helpful with requests

Beautiful ... Is the perfect word for the location of the resort and then its all downhill. Though the staff is all eager to help but the stinky varnish smelling rooms not at all worthy of hefty charges they take. Food also does not measure upto the standards of a five star resort at all. The saving grace for this place has to be its wonderous location and nice lawns .the views are awsome ,they could seriously do something about food and the rooms

Room Tip: Ask for the room facing the river coz nothing else matters.the rooms are so closely placed that inva...

Dear Guest,

Thank you so much for your very kind feedback.

This comes as a surprise that rooms were in a bad condition as thats what the biggest USP of Hotel is, however we would still appreciate if you can provide your room and reservation details separately to info@spanresorts.com, so we can look into the matter deeply.

But the food concern is taken under serious considerations and we will ensure the highest quality with new varieties immediately.

We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future

Best Regards

Situated right on the banks of the river Beas, Span resort and spa offers you an out of the world experience. The staff is extremely hospitable, the food is delicious and the surroundings are oh my god breathtaking. The rooms have recently been renovated and are an epitome of luxury. Breakfasts on the banks of a flowing river surrounded by the imposing himalayas, it seems like another world.

The only place I recommend when in Manali, it actually makes all the Taj and Oberoi's seem unattractive.
