I had read so many good things about the Himalayan and although I was staying elsewhere, I made it a point to visit the resort.... am so glad I did. On a warm sunny day having well presented continental fare by the poolside was a real treat... The views are exceptional and the service polite and prompt. Highly recommended just...

I visit Manali twice every year and as always I choose The Himalayan as my home in the mountains. It's only getting better each time I stay here. No doubt this is the best resort in Manali and possibly in Himachal Pradesh. Europeans will especially appreciate the quiet location, high quality interiors, cleanliness and tasty food. The rooms have excellent...

The Himalayan was our choice of stay on the way back from Chandratal in August this year. After roughing it out for four days in a suspensionless Rhino and then in Swiss tents pitched in the barren Spiti valley, we were longing for a warm, inviting experience. The hotel is well appointed at an elevation, rising head and shoulders above...

The Himalayan is a beautiful luxury resort built like a castle and is very well located, yet it is away from the hustle-bustle of the city! It's just a couple of kms away from Old Manali & 4-5kms from the bus stand. I was blown away by the Victorian Gothic architecture as soon as I entered the property! The Director...

Me and my wife visited the Himalayan during the diwali break. We were totally appalled by the Victorian decor and the immaculate attention to detail while building the property. So if you are someone who enjoys the charm of history and art, this is it! Your search for a fairytale stay stops here. As far as the location is concerned,...

Staying in the castle is a really nice experience. Superbly decorated and the rooms are spacious with a nice view. We stayed in the castle itself, there are also cottages available. The location is close to the center of Manali. One of the disadvantages was the shower: the temperature fluctuated and it was really hard getting the temperature right. Also...

Being extremely picky about hotels, The Himalayan didn't give me a chance to complain or feel dissatisfied. The room had lots of natural light and a breathtaking view of the valley. I was highly impressed with the staff in terms of their attitude and the prompt service. Being very accurately located in Manali, the hotel provides a great amount of...

We had travelled to Manali on a whim, without any prior research or reservations. After a nightmarish experience at another popular hotel, we found this gem and shifted here. Am I glad we did! Even with all the activities and beauty Manali offers, we always looked forward to come back and enjoy all that this resort offers. If you have...
