We had a very comfortable stay at Manuallya resort Manali. The staff was really very friendly.Wonderful interiors,very good service & excellent dining.The accommodations are modern,very clean & up to date.Wonderful view of snow capped mountains from every room.The hotel is well managed & maintained , i definitely recommend it for stay in Manali.Very good indoor swimming pool along with well equipped gym. So many other fun filled activities for children.Live music is awesome in the evening. Vashist temple & main market is hardly 2 KM from hotel.Once you stay at Manuallya you will definitely want to come here again.My best wishes for the staff & management for coming days.Thanks.

Made a trip to Manali in June 2014 for 4 nights, summer vacations in school in gurgaon were coming to an end, and I made last minute decision to visit manali. Reserved manu allaya via yatra.com and they offered better price including breakfast and dinner. Manu allay is ideal for family getaway, my two son age 6&12 were happy spending time at the hotel vs side seeing. Staff is children friendly and Punnet (GM) was helpful in planning exotic lunch in old manali. Food in hotel is indian it's good, opportunity to further improve to be a 5 star.

Room Tip: Ask for view to Tibet temple.

It was fun to be at Manuallaya.. The best one is sitting in balcony with breath taking view of mountain and the river. Simply good place.

Kids enjoyed a lot with variety of swings and indoor games. Imagine my 3 year old daughter saying that the place is good

I don't know how this property got a 5 star rating. The room we were given was old and depressing. (However they did say they have a new section with newer rooms). We made a booking of 2 rooms but they give us rooms which were far away from each other. The staff was indifferent and slightly rude. Food was average. We had to wait for 20 mins to get a bartender for the main hotel bar. Since we had to check out early the person at the reception told us he will pack breakfast for us but there was nothing in the morning. We lost our key card but the receptionist told us he cannot give us a new card immediately. The location is very close to main manali town but since it is on rohtang road, in the evening you will face a lot of traffic if you want to go out for dinner.
