"if there is a heaven on earth, then it is here, it is here, it is here!!"
Neeralaya is superfantabulous. It it unbelievable that a place so nice and people so lovely exist!!. we stayed there for 7 nights and had an unforgettable experience. We holiday quite a bit - but this was one place where we did not want to leave.
The cottages are all so charming, the sound of the river so relaxing, the food was so tasty, the staff was so friendly the weather so perfect.....we are surely going back again and with friends!!!
Munir is an outstanding host, giving personalized attention to each guest, never rushed and always helpful. His knowledge of the local area is amazing - he organized a 'visit to the snow' for us which included a super guide, a 3.5 km trek (one way) and snow in the wilderness - where there was no other tourist - what an experience !!
My wife was so impressed that she wrote a short verse about the place,,which sort of sums up our experience of the place.
A page out of time
A poem of sheer purity
Sanctity shines forth from every atom...
Happy trees beckon you
Chirping birds make this paradise home
Time reflects the strong and consistent Beas of yore
A poetry so simple and pure
Sanctity, please stay here forever.....forever
Thank you Neeralaya,
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Surrounded by orchards and beautiful landscapes, Neeralaya offers villas and suites by the river "Beas" located between Kullu and Manali in Himachal Pradesh, India. The villas are equipped with modern amenities but are built with recycled timber, stone and slate, using the traditional methods of timber bonded architecture of the Western Himalaya! Being sensitive to our local environment, a lot of thought and actions have been taken to minimise our carbon footprints in each and every aspect of our enterprise. All meals served in Neeralaya are freshly cooked with most of the produce procured from our organic farm that is on the premises of the property. But having said all this, the real crowning glory of our labour of love is our local staff that needs special mention as they make you feel so welcome, that you never want to leave! ... more less
