“A river runs through it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

This is a stunning property just a few minutes away from Manali, so you get to enjoy the peace and tranquility, and yet should you desire the hustle-bustle, the town is right around the corner. The staff is amazing...helpful and friendly and the rooms are very comfortable and cozy and spotlessly clean. The beautifully maintained grounds lead up to the river that flows through the property and for city slickers like me, it felt like paradise. We generally ate our breakfasts by the riverside, and spent a major portion of the day outdoors enjoying the beautiful lawns by the river. The resort has a fully functional spa, swimming pool , jogging track and a host of other activities, so is a fab option for people traveling with kids. The hotel has a very well stocked bar, a multi-cuisine restaurant and a Chinese restaurant, and the staff are very happy to cater to individual taste preferences and those of little kids, which adds a nice warm touch. To conclude, Span resorts would be my only choice in Manali.

Outstanding property with a river flowing through it. Not just that the river flows just thirty feet away from your room!!!

The staff is amazing. The Indian food is good( although the Continental and Chinese are dodgy).

The bar has one of the largest whiskey selections you ll ever see. In fact people come from other hotels to only drink whiskey at this bar.

Swimming pool, tennis court and Spa.

Twenty mins from Manali. If you really want to have a good holiday don't risk it and try anywhere else because it isn't going to get any better.

Room Tip: Ask for the river facing rooms.

Can't believe a place exists like this in our own Himachal Pradesh. Stunning beauty. Very good food. Rooms are excellent. Premier and elite rooms are the best. The staff is very helpful. My advice is to travel with family or a group of friends as this would be even more fun. Too many activities in the Resort itself. Overall SUPERB expperience

This place has it all when you want to just get away for a few days from the hustle bustle of the town. Amazing lawns backing onto the beas river tops it all. Behind the river are the hills.The view is breath taking and makes you want to stay at this place for longer. I simply loved the place.

Room Tip: Ask for the independent elite cottage.

The moment we landed in Span Resorts, we all felt very reassured that our stay in Manali would definitely be great. This resort and its cottages are quite beautifully made and situated amidst the mountains and the Beas river. It gives one a feeling a complete serenity and of being completely one with nature. The rooms are nice and tidy though the washrooms are tiny in space. But we would definitely like to recommend this property to anyone who is planning a trip to Manali. The resort has a lot of activities options especially for kids of all ages right from swimming to cycling to other games. A good property for the complete family.

Room Tip: We opted for a river side view room however the river beas is pretty far from the room and there is...

It is the best place where I have stayed. Quality of food is excellent, you'll not miss home food here. Lot of activities to be done like cycling, river crafting etc. Night bonfire. In short, even if you don't go outside this resort, you are not going to get bored for atleast 2-3 days but prefer this with group of people.

Room Tip: Bestest best..

The minute we landed in Manali we knew that this trip is going to be special. But, we had know idea how special and we found our answer at Span Resort and Spa. Beautiful, serene, picture perfect location. Service was of top level. Food was great. There is not much to do and at that point of time the Spa was not functional which was a bit of a disappointment. But then we were looking for a complete all in all relaxing trip and the place was well worth it. We liked having our lunch by the river so everyday they used to set it up for us. We were served the freshest seafood and the best of the meals. I would love to go back there sometime in the future. Definitely one of the best resorts i have visited.

Room Tip: River adjacent elite rooms are really nice :)
