Built in the Victorian Gothic Revival style and perched at an elevation of 2003 metres, The Himalayan is the premier luxury resort in Manali area of North Western Indian Himalaya. Our Castle and Cottages are set in the midst of apple and cherry orchards, overlooking resplendent snow capped mountain peaks and waterfalls plunging down rock faces. In this privileged backdrop we find inspiration, whilst looking towards a vibrant and propitious future. Here grandeur, elegance and style have conspired to create intimacy and warmth without pretension. The Himalayan’s fine blend of inimitability and characteristic eccentricity will find appeal with connoisseurs of tradition, looking for a difference. Like the gentleman who sports jauntily-coloured braces beneath his conservative tweed suit or harbours a penchant for embroidered silk pyjamas, The Himalayan is proud of its individuality but doesn’t scream it.

Set back inland in Mandrem, is the oasis, that is Wigwam Goa. Nik & Tanya have created an idilic spot, surrounded by hundreds of native trees and plants. As the name implies, there are eight, six meter wide Tippees or Wigwams, all with ensuite outdoor shower, as well as two stunning octagon structures, made from local materials. There is also the option of one and two bedroom Apartments, with kitchens & air conditioning, for those who like their creature comforts. The cafe offers local based organic food, great coffee, Kombucha and a long list of Nic’s cocktails. Serving Rotisserie chicken and veggie burgers with music and dancing every Saturday night, has become a local legend.
