“Amazing Enperience!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

We went here last week to celebrate out 1st year Anniversary. We took a river facing balcony room and it was amazing. We can hear the sound of the water flowing through the river and it feels amazing. The staff, cleanliness and everything was just perfect. Best is they have a lot of parking space there which is tough to get in any hill station. Overall, i guess its among the best properties in Manali.....WOrth the stay!!

Room Tip: Go for a river view facing room!

We went there last week.. After a lot of searching on the Internet and visiting the place personally, I must say it is one of the best properties in Manali.. We booked a river view room and it was simply amazing to see the scenic beauty from the balcony. One can actually hear the noisy Beas.. And see the snow covered mountains.. Soothing it was.. We went for the MAP plan.. And we enjoyed the breakfast and dinner buffets. We enjoyed the variety they served all three days that we stayed.. The staff at the coffee shop was quite attentive.. The live music adds life to the dinner buffet. They sing amazing romantic numbers and you can actually feel cozy in the arms of your loved one in the cold breeze listening to them around the Bon fire.. The only disappointment for me during my stay was their housekeeping.. Wish they could be more attentive towards the cleanliness of the room so that I don't have to check them next time during my stay.. Overall I loved my stay at this property..

Room Tip: Go for the river view room with a balcony..

We stayed here in December, 2013. The weather was super cold and the central room heating was working fine. The only not so good part of this hotel is that it is around 6-8 Kms away from Manali so you cannot just walk around at your leisure.
Food is OK, and service is fine, not so good, not bad.
We stayed in the ground floor room which has a sort of private garden and the river is just a few steps away from it.
The sound of water at night is specially a treat for the guests !!

Stayed there for 2 nights. Hotel is around 6 Km from the main Mall Road of Manali. The Room was modern and comfortable. We got the room with River-view. The room and the lawns were nice. Restaurant food was good but service is less than desired. A little more training to the staff can do wonders. Overall a good place to stay.

Dont use the SPA! I had to take a Cold shower after the SPA!

Dear Guest,

Thank you so much for sparing some valuable time and making an effort to give us your feedback which will motivate my chefs with your kind words. We understand our service need to be improved and certainly we will make it happen through our rigorous training methodology. We apologize for this and it’s quite disheartening for us that you had to take a cold water shower in the SPA due to an emergency situation cropped up and had no alternate solution rather than upgrading the services.

We have taken a note of this and ensured that this does not recur.

We look forward to welcome you back and appreciate again for your feedback.

Warm regards,
Shyam Chaudhary

We had been there in January 2014 and spent 3 nights there. Though i visited twice earlier also, but it was our first visit after the renovation of the resort. Rooms of the new block were very good with the mountain and river view.The plus point of the resort is the access to river and the beautiful lawn, where you can spend the time with your family and loved ones in the lap of nature. Food and restaurant service were excellent. Resort has big and tastefully developed lobby where they offer complimentary WI-FI to their guest.We took local site seen package from there travel desk at very competitive rates. We enjoyed the snow fall at mall and solang valley as well. We did paragliding . it was again an awesome experience. We will loved to come here again and again..Next time we will visit manali in the month of july when apples are on trees.A big thank to Mr. Rajeev ahuja - GM of Manali resorts, for arranging our holiday..
