Urvashi's turned out to be the perfect escape - from Manali and in Manali. Its location is unbeatable - a few kilometres north of Manali - close enough to visit Manali for meals etc and far enough to avoid the maddening crowd and traffic of Manali. The retreat is located in the higher reaches of the valley, with atleast 5 snow covered peaks clearly visible in different directions, even in April.

Coming to the rooms - large, clean and airy, with every amenity you would possibly require.. The linens, towels etc and the room and bathroom are spotless. We had both a fan and a heater in the room - to keep our days cool and our nights warm.. Much of our time was spent in the balconies of the rooms - with beautiful views of the mountains and valleys around.

The retreat offers a large menu with dishes ranging from your standard fish and chips to Lal Maas to South Indian style coconut fish curry. The food was brilliant and I don't think I stopped eating until I was stuffed at every single meal. The room service was quick and efficient.

The retreat has a recreational area with a bar, pool table and a huge collection of movies to watch. It also has a spa as well as several hammocks and lounge chairs all around the property. However, my favourite has to be the walks around the property. Since it is located in such a quiet area, the area around Urvashis has a lot of possible walking/trekking routes that one can go for early morning or late evening.

All in all, I think Urvashi's has got to be the perfect escape from civilization in Manali, and I see myself being back there every season

Urvashi's Retreat is situated at the Great nature location. The view from room and resort is breathtaking with snow clad mountains and valleys. Rooms and interior is very good. Beautiful dining area with excellent food quality. Very helpful staff and nice hospitality. Overall I can say that i have very pleasant stay here.

No good services as far as food is concerned, property is beautiful but the retreat lacks hospitality. We were denied to place our order for food and were told to either wait for a long time or eat anything which is already made. A very sad experience. Not recommended. Staff is least bothered/concerned. It was a surprise that a hotel under the ITC group would serve so.

A nice hotel (newly built I think) with beautiful rooms and full of amenities. The hotel has a beautiful dining area above reception. Hotel staff was very supportive and always smiling. Breakfast was also very good. A very nice view of mountains from hotel room and hotel is surrounded by apple trees.
hotel location is slightly away from main city and Mall road, thus hotel should provide shuttle for pick/drop to main city.

Room tip: Aesthetic view from rooms. Any room can be selected

Dear Mr. Sachin,

Thank you for your kind review.
I am delighted to know that you enjoyed your stay with us. While I agree that my Retreat is slightly out of the city, I assure you the permanent availability of pick up/ drop-off services at a minimal premium. Since most of our premium clientele arrives in their own transportation, the pick-up/ drop-off service is provided upon request.

I hope this clarifies your doubt.

I look forward to hosting you again soon and wish you a pleasant week ahead.

Kind regards,
Urvashi

Hotel is well located, has amazing staff. At this price, it is the best hotel in whole of Manali. Cabs are easily available from this place. So whole of Manali is easily accessible from this place.

Make sure to pre-book, as it rarely has empty rooms.

Whenever I visit Manali, I prefer to stay at this Hotel, because of its location. On your way back home, I am sure you will feel rejuvenated.
