My husband and I chose to spend two nights at this amazing hotel this week. As we are familiar with most of Manali, we were pleasantly surprised by a place that felt completely away from everything we had experienced of Manali town. The most impressive aspect of The Himalayan, aside from the natural beauty of the mountain setting, was the attention to detail. Every piece of furniture, every stone staircase, each window casing was well-planned and beautifully crafted. It reminded us of the bed and breakfasts we are accustomed to visiting in the US, though even more grand and luxurious.
My husband thoroughly enjoyed the swimming pool, which was kept clean and fit beautifully into its flower garden and cottage environment. I will definitely come prepared for a swim next time!
To the owners: Thank you for a truly delightful stay and for your warm hospitality. We feel refreshed and ready to go back to work.
