WOW was the first word from our mouth as our car entered in this resort,we stayed here for 4 nights in its royal suite & sunny side cottage,while booking a made a difficult choice between Mannu allaya,Holiday inn & Rock manali & i have no regrets.its a luxury resort with beautiful & excellent location,surrounded by green & snow clad mountains.royal suites is the ultimate luxury with big bathrooms.resort has everything inside lawn,swimming pool,jym,courts,mini zoo etc.staff is courteous,food is good.location is fantastic,what as you need for a wonderful holiday.Thanks to manu allaya.only one suggestion they should arrange for the Bone-fire in the evening,which we miss there even when they have space for that & its peak season time,must recommend to the persons going to Manali.

Almost one year back I stayed at Manu Allaya as a part of the film crew of Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone starrer "Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani" which is releasing tomorrow ! The main crew and the stars of the film stayed in Manu Allaya. It was a fabulous experience.
I was the fitness trainer to the stars in the film. I used the huge and beautiful hotel to make the actors do yoga, running and other atheletic exercises. The hotel staff was very supportive in assisting me to choose different indoor and outdoor spaces in the hotel to train the actors.
The stay in this hotel made my trip to Himachal very special. The property is in a great location, at a height from the main Manali market. All one sees from the hotel are trees and snow capped mountains. The area of the hotel is huge and I absolutely love the garden area which is great to practice yoga/walk/jog.
The staff in the hotel is very warm and helpful. They helped me plan a lot of treks around Manali and gave valuable suggestions which helped me explore Himachal in a much better way. The food and service is exceptionally good. The rooms are comfortable and spacious and have a great view. Since it was a long stay, by the end of it I felt quite at home and have very fond memories of my stay.
Just walking distance from the hotel is a hot water spring which I highly recommend. From there one can trek further to a nice waterfall.
Post monsoons, I am really looking forward to going to Manali again with a group of my friends and some people I train in fitness. We will make Manu Allaya our base and go for treks around Manali. I very highly recommend Manu Allaya to anyone visiting Manali and wanting to experience true Himachali hospitality ! :)

Room Tip: The view from the higher floors is better..
