This was our second consecutive visit to Manali and Aveda( formerely Manali Resorts).Last year if u see my reviews,I have recomended this resort by all means.So we again decided to rebook this resort.I have read the reviews of some people complaining about the resort but I did not cared as I thought that people have a thing in them for complaining.But mind it people were absolutely right and I was wrong in rebooking this resort.Now this resort has only one thing to offer and i.e their location only.Rest all is in Gods hands.The resort has been going through an extensive renovation and God only knows that when it will ever get completed or not.The facilities they mention in their website are not at all available.No Air Conditioning, No Spa, No Gym etc. The Mountain View rooms of the resort are so much suffocated and hot that u feel like sitting in a Volcano.Their is no exhaust facility in the room and toilet.So after one person uses the toilet, the room smells like anything.So one has to keep the room open to remove the smell.Even u cant sleep in such heated room.And when contacted the staff regarding the problem, they don't have any solution and are helpless.The tariff has been increased by 50% and the facilities has been withdrawn.Now regarding the food quality and variety.Those who have been visiting this resort, khows that what kind of food quality and variety this resort used to offer.But now they have a very limited variety specially in dinner.The crockery has been replaced by steel crockery.It gives the feeling of a Dharamshala and not of a Luxury Resort.Even after complaining the GM about the problems they dont seem to have any solution.
