1. The Himalayan
One of Manali’s most comfortable options, this elegant, plush hotel is set in immaculate grounds. Built in striking Victorian Gothic Revival style, The Himalayan is complemented by the option of attractive two-bedroom cottages complete with antique furniture and private gardens. The buildings are set amongst cherry and apple orchards overlooking snow-capped mountains that cry out to be explored – though with a gym, spa, pool, bar and restaurant serving excellent continental and Indian cuisines, you might find it hard to leave the immaculate grounds.
