After reading a few reviews we decided to book our stay at PAUSE... Though we didnt have very high expectations from the place but just wanted it to be comfortable for a family which included our parents & 3 year Son....But PAUSE turned out to be the best part of our trip... nice view, good n friendly staff, neat n clean rooms, good home style food, good location.... what more one can ask for....
at first we booked for 3 nights but by the end we didnt feel like leavin the place ... so we extended our trip by another night...
Manu it was great meeting you and thank you for making our stay so comfortable...
we will see u soon....

Arriving in Manali from a long hard road trip down from Leh, Ladakh - we spent the first night in a small hotel by the bus station. Moved into Pause @ Manali the very next morning and what a great choice it turned out to be.

Located half-way up the hill - a short distance from the heart of the busy Manali town centre - Pause gives truly panoramic views and the only real sounds are those of the fast flowing Beas river down below and the odd tuk tuk winding its way slowly up the hill..

We stayed in late July - the property is set in it's own orchard and the trees were full of apples & pears.

Manu the resident partner hails from an F&B background and it certainly shows. We arranged a small dinner party from friends made on the way - and my young son - two weeks later - still refers to it as 'awesome'.

There is much development going on it Manali - I would recommend the rooms on the top (2nd) floor facing the valley - with private balconies and the amazing views. The first floor also has great rooms and a huge shared balcony great for interacting with other guests.

There's a great 'downhill' walk right from Pause, down to Manali, going through the woods. About 30 mins and you are in the heart of town - highly recommended even for couch potatoes like me. Coming back we took tuk-tuks (autorickshaws) that take about the same amount of time to wind slowly up the hill.

You get both cable & satellite TV and they have a good internet connection, piping hot water, great beds, excellent food and caring staff - combined with the location it is one of THE places to stay in Manali

Room Tip: It's a small place with 9 rooms I think. The rooms are large and very well appointed - I feel th...

It was a terrific experience staying at PAUSE , away from the maddening crowd , on the top of the hill....overlooking a breath taking view.....making you speechless as well ! Coupled with majestic location is the warmth of the hospitable staff who are very courteous and child friendly ! Thoroughly lived every moment of my stay at PAUSE ...the incessant sound of the Beas and the crisp fresh air that you wish, one would live in forever.........
A place worth visiting indeed.....
Thankyou Pause.

We stayed at manali for 4 nights. Its located at a height from the main road which on hindsight turns out to be a much sought after blessing. Pause offers an outstanding view of Manali - the hills and the river. Very peaceful and spacious accommodation and an ever courteous and helpful staff. Food can be cooked on order or of your liking. IN A NUTSHELL VERY PEACEFUL AND VALUE FOR MONEY HOLIDAY.

We stayed at Pause for one night in June 2012. On the way to Pause, we realised it is literally on the hill-top! The location is indeed a great asset. The view from the common balcony is awesome. One can actually hear the sound of Beas river flowing down. At night, sitting in the balcony (which had very comfortable bean bags to sit on), we have a great view of the entire valley with lights twinkling...it was very peaceful. The staff is very warm and friendly - Sham, Jatin and not to forget Manu, the owner. He was most gracious and helpful. We had a very engaging chat with him about he came about the place. Pause is just two months old, I am sure it will rise to great heights in the coming years. The food was also good and home made. The only negative factor about the place was the common balcony, which I thought invaded our privacy, but with management's help, it could also be sorted out. Thanks for a great stay@ Pause!

Room Tip: Try to choose the upper rooms (2nd Floor)

Firstly the name says it all, but did we really manage to 'Pause' ...YES ! This homely and picture perfect place is perfect if you are looking at taking a break from your hectic lifestyles, smell the fresh air and grasp the majestic views of the Himalayas. A drive away from the regular Manali traffic on top of the hills, created a perfect holiday for us this summer. You never get tired of mesmerizing the 360 degree view and enjoy the warm hospitality of the homely staff. This is definitely the best buck for your money when you are looking at spending 5-6 days in peace and serenity. This is incredible India in its true sense ! We truly had a superlative experience. Strongly advised for people looking at getting away for a unique getaway (unlike the hectic ones) to take a REAL break and ....Pause !
