We were initially introduced to Solace Retreat thru a friend. It's a 1.5hr drive off the Kullu-Manali highway. Since we drove from Delhi to Sojha, it was a long and tiring journey. But the moment we stepped into the resort, we completely forgot our drive.
This place is a nature traveller's heaven. As close to nature - and yet has all of the basic amenities one would expect. These guys have tried to preserve as much of nature as they could - and they've done a good job.
What I like most about Solace Retreat is the location of the resort and the warmth of the staff. The terrace next to the dining hall opens into a lush green valley with snow peaked mountains on the far right.
Manu (the owner there) and his team are "wondrfully warm" guys. Extremely helpful, took care of the smallest of the details - and that too tastefully. One thing worth mentioning here is that the quality of good is fantastic which is rare in typical hill station hotels.
Solace Retreat is a place "nature lovers" will love to be in. Each "floor" has a wooden balcony covered with glass. A perfect place to spend the day in the sun's warmth - reading a book and sipping coffee - no matter how cold or windy it is outside !!
The rooms are clean, spacious and have a very warm feeling. The entire staff is amazing - almost seems like family members to us. Added attraction is the treks and their own well informed guides (and treking infrastructure) available in the resort.
I will definetely be planning my next vacation to this resort soon !!!!
