Remember the song ILU ILU? Remember the film Saudagar? Alright then, you must remember Raj Kumars house, the palatial building, the sprawling gradens and the beautiful environs. Remember the recent Hawa and the ambience around it. That is Manali Resorts for you.


Like many other resorts in and around Manali, this one too is on the banks of Beas and its free flow. Although less expansive than Apple Valley Resorts, it has its own charm. It is by far the most modern in architecture. Although it shot to fame with Saudagar, it has since maintained its standards with its exquisite hosting of the various festivals and playing host to many film units. Being a private hotel and first class one, it is a bit expensive but with the services provided it is not bad. Certainly among the top 10 of the area.


Here is a quick checklist:


Rent/ Charges: Rs. 3,000 to 5,000 per day for suites


Rent/Charges: Rs. 1,500 to 2,500 per day for rooms


rents vary according to season, best to visit in August September or January for snow.


Rent Includes: Stay, breakfast and dinner with one time snacks


Rooms: Well done


Architecture: Somewhat city/ business like but relaxed and somewhat spooky


Adults per room:2 only but additional beds can be put up for children at extra cost


Check In and Out Timings:Not before 5 AM and not after 11 PM


Cuisines Available:Indian (read Punjabi), Mughlai, Chineese, Continental, Himachali, Tibetian, Kashmiri, South Indian and one special depending upon the festival season.


Facilities:


Taxi can be hired by Hotel on prior request


24 hour coffee shops, doctor, baby sitting, money exchange etc.


Well furnished room with heating facility in nights and winters


Some outdoor sports and indoor sports as well


Conference room facilities mostly for film prodn. units


Drawbacks:


Service is not that quick


English is the medium of communication only


Outdoors not big enough


Cuisine festivals are rather whacko


No discounts


Usually runs into many months advance


Distance from Manali :5kms on Kullu Manali Highway


Distance from Kullu :around 30 kms


Approach:On the main Highway, so easy to access


Nearest Airport:Bhuntar, less than 50 kms. Supports only small aircrafts


Offices:Delhi, Shimla, Chandigarh or contact any HPTC office spread across the globe. Online reservation is also available, but it is best to contact them through HPTC or private tour operators.


Rating: 4 star


Overall it is a good place to stay and if you are lucky you might just bump into film unt during your stay. The staff is cordial although a bit lazy and the food usually is too cosmopoliton in nature (read diet and masala less). Still, it is famous locale and away from city but not too far.


P.S. Dont look out of the window at night, else you might just feel spooked.
