The resort was beautiful and the staffs were very helpful and friendly. We stayed their for 3 nights and was not disappointed. If you are looking for a peaceful stay then I recommend this resort but its quite far from the mall road and everything else.

Great location, away from the hustle bustle of town, it's a luxurious hotel cum spa. The view is perfect. Everyone is courteous and the food is very good. Special mention for the food and beverage staff for food presentation and hospitality. Ms Neena Rana was the best host ever. Front desk/ reception, bell boys and house keeping did perfect job.

" For starters it's not the same group as the manu maharani of Nainital so don't get fooled by the name! The property is well made but not well kept. The sporting area shows signs of not being kept well and can do with a thorough renewal for the outdoor activities. The rooms are well made but the heater system...

I spent 2 nights at this hotel with my wife and two young daughters. This hotel needs some real revamping. It's aged, rooms feel out dated, food options are not great, staff are very lazy and slow at everything. If I had a chance to visit manali again, I would definitely avoid this hotel.

This is the 2nd time we stayed in this hotel. Our experience is even better than earlier. We celebrated 31st night. Great arrangement. Rooms are very cozy with antique furnitures. I think this hotel has best views of the river as well as snow clad mountains. Little far from the high traffic area. We enjoyed a great food and hospitality.

Visited this place in March and stayed for 3 nights. From the time we landed here till we checked out, we were in awe of this place.
