We stayed at Himalayan from 15th to 19th August and to say that it was a really good experience would be an understatement. Although it was a really tough journey by road from Delhi (specially from Kiratpur to Bilaspur) specially in heavy rains, the beautiful location of The Himalayan mesmerizes you. Tucked away in soltitude just off the road to Hidimba Temple, the place in its truly Gothic Style is really scenic. We opted for a family room which had great views and was modern in all aspects. They also have fully equipped cottages around a swimming pool which are a better bet if you are traveling in a group of two families. The manager Mr. Sunil was very cooperative and friendly. The staff however was slightly laidback although there was not much of service required at this place. This is because The Himalayan only offers room packages without including any food which is probably the only slightly negative point. The food is only available on a la carte basis which is tasty and actually allows you to savour lot of delicacies at lot of other good places in Manali. Coming back to the Himalayan, these were one of the most refreshing 3-4 days spent in the hills. The long walks, the beautiful location, the fresh air, the cool weather and the peaceful atmosphere make Manali a must visit holiday destination and The Himalayan a near perfect host.
