What we love
- This cosy Irish mansion, reminiscent of the colonial era, is tucked away in nature’s lap while being a stone’s throw away from the charms of Manali. Be welcomed to a lawn strewn with colourful alpine flora in full bloom, the mellifluous chirping of the songbirds, the verdant valleys and the lofty snowcapped mountains - a setting that instantly ferries you to a simpler world where nature and those you’re in the company of are all that matter.
- The charming bedrooms with wooden floors and beams, although modern in style, have beautiful elements of colonial design. The bedrooms have large glass windows and a balcony from where you can enjoy the sweeping panorama of the spectacular landscape of the mountains, forest and the valley!
- The possibility of lazy meals out on the sprawling lawns amidst flowering trees while delicious food is served. Order your favourites from the Indian cuisine along with the Himalayan trout curry and the sole fish dishes that we highly recommend! In the evening, just as the sun dips into oblivion, cheery bonfires light up the sky - an enchanting setting that’s bound to create lots of happy memories.
- The ever friendly and extremely warm staff are ready to make your every whimsical wish come true - from packing breakfast for those checking out really early to creating some of your most memorable times in Manali.
What to know
- From a small hill station frequented only by backpackers to one of the most populous hill stations in India, Manali has come a long way! Many who came here as tourists, fell in love with the place and set up simple establishments in the form of lodges, inns and world cuisine restaurants. Here you can get wood-fired pizzas as well as gourmet French cuisine. And while all this is on offer, don’t forget to experiment with the local cuisine - a dham that’s an elaborate traditional fare with rice, a variety of lentils, chickpeas and topped off with khatta (sweet and sour sauce made of tamarind and jaggery) or khadi-chawal, another staple. At different times of the tea, relish the local blends of tea served at tiny kiosks and for those who’d like something stronger, try the local beer, lugdi!
- Go on nature walks, fascinating treks and trails, picnics or day excursions to explore the breathtaking surroundings of Manali. All of these can be organised with ease by the staff here. Just nudge them with what you’d like to do and they’ll take care of it.
- Relive your younger days by playing a game of basketball or badminton at the courts within the property.
