I was on a break after 2 yrs with my wife, and was looking for a place which would offer a special experience - almost a 2nd honeymoon. That's when I came across- Pause@Manali at tripadvisor and after going through their website www.pauseatmanali.com, there's only one word that came to my mind - Passion. I was not disappointed when I visited this place, and i am happy I chose Pause for a vacation.
The location, the thought that goes behind the arrangement on every floor, the common balcony from 1st floor, the bean bags, the rocking chairs, dining tables on 1st & 2nd floor, PS2 setup on ground floor in the common seating area.. everything has been done very very tastefully. You get a feeling that the owner could have squeezed in some extra rooms, but they didn't do so just so to maintain the charm of the place.
We had bit of a problem as the room which we were initially offered did not get much sunlight, and were promptly shifted to another room, which had ample sunlight! The staff is very friendly and courteous, and the food was really good. We initially had a booking for 3 nights but ended up staying for 4 nights here. Though the hotel is a bit far from the Mall Road, the beautiful property and lovely views more than make up for it.
The owner Manu - is a very pleasent person to interact with and a very helpful adviser for someone visiting Manali for the first time. It does seem that he is into this business for more than just making money - read Passion.
I would highly recommend Pause for anyone looking for a relaxing break, and look forward to visiting Pause again in future!
