At this Manali estate, snuggle up with a blanket while gazing out at the snow-capped Himalayas, walk through charming apple orchards, trek the hills, and savor local Himachali cuisine. Manali, the picturesque hill station, has so much to give throughout the year, and now is the perfect time to see it in all of its winter glory. For your next vacation, we’ve compiled a list of Resorts in Manali and homestays in and around Manali.
This castle resort is located in Kullu Valley and is over 2,000 meters above sea level. The Victorian and Gothic architecture, complete with antique furniture, medieval arches, and cast-iron fireplaces, distinguishes it. The chambers, which have hardwood floors, antique poster beds, a fireplace, and an en-suite marble bathroom, or the charming two-bedroom cottages strung across the pool and orchard garden with private balconies overlooking the majestic Himalayas, are among the options.
The Taara House
This boutique two-bedroom mountain lodge is nestled on a hilltop only a few kilometers from Manali’s city center, making it ideal for a rustic mountain getaway. The eclectic vibe of this room is enhanced by the extensive use of recycled and reclaimed wood, as well as Scandinavian light fixtures and local artifacts. The glasshouse, however, is the true show-stopper here, where you can dine under the stars or simply soak up the heat. Pine, English oak and Burma Teak were used extensively in the wooden interiors, especially across the hall and in the spacious rooms that can accommodate up to four guests.
WelcomHeritage Urvashi’s Retreat
This boutique property that doubles as a nature retreat is located in the picturesque surroundings of Bipasha valley and offers suites, cottages, and villas with chalet-style interiors, ideal for a cozy winter getaway. Try the Pahari Dham menu, which features a modern take on traditional Himachali dishes such as ghat ka shorba (lentil soup), along pulao, mash dal (black lentil dal), and kaddu ka khatta (pumpkin curry), among others. The property’s dining hall, Rohtang Pavillion, also serves evening suppers and breakfasts.
You can make yourself at home at this 15-bedroom boutique resort in Karjan Village, which is an hour away from Kullu-Manali Airport. Stone, dirt, and wood from the area were used to build the rooms. Many of them have conventional wooden ceilings, and some even have private sit-outs. Each room is named after a nearby village or mountain range. The resort uses solar energy to heat all of its water and collects rainwater for gardening to reduce its environmental impact. Furthermore, to fully appreciate the charm of staying in this hill resort area, the resort organizes nature walks through apple orchards or mountain biking activities.
The Anantmaya Resort
The Anantmaya Resort, with its Tudor-style architecture and its own landscaped gardens, is surrounded by orchards and fields and has its own landscaped gardens. The hotel’s 42 contemporary luxury and villa rooms all have private balconies and plenty of space. If you want to do some sightseeing in the city, the resort is close to Naggar Castle and the Jagatsukh Temple, which are both located on Naggar Road.
Up to eight guests can be accommodated in this private three-bedroom villa. You can gather in the cosy living room with a working fireplace as you look out to the Pir Panjal mountains, or enjoy the scenery in the garden right outside your villa, which is ideal for a stay with a group of friends or family. An apple, pear, and cherry orchard also surrounds the house.
Baragarh Resort & SPA
Indulge in tranquility at this luxurious resort and spa in the Himalayan foothills. There are 33 suites here, each with a private balcony and breathtaking views. When you’re not snuggled up in your bed with a good book or simply admiring the scenery, head to the property’s heated pool, which overlooks snow-capped mountains and makes for a surreal getaway.
Apple Country Resort
The apple orchards that surround the resort-inspired the resort’s name. The accommodation consists of 39 well-appointed rooms. Butler service, bonfires, riverside lunches, and private picnics are only a few of the activities and facilities that make for a memorable holiday. If you want to get out and about and take in the sights and sounds, the resort will arrange treks for you, whether it’s a taste of history at the Hadimba temple or a stroll through the meadows at Lama Dug.
The Duffdun House
Inhale the fresh mountain air at this Manali boutique hotel. You can enjoy home-cooked meals made from locally grown ingredients, take advantage of the house’s many nooks and crannies, or simply spend afternoons reading a book under the shade of the walnut tree. This six-bedroom villa can sleep up to 20 people. From the boutique rooms to the family suite, each room has its own distinct personality and color scheme, making it a home away from home in the hills. The entire property or individual rooms may be reserved.
