The Himalayan Resort

The Himalayan Resort

Built in the Victorian Gothic Revival style and perched at an elevation of 2003 metres, The Himalayan Resort 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 Resort is proud of its individuality but doesn’t scream it. Passing through the flagstone-paved cul-de-sac, beyond urn-topped gateposts, you have crossed the threshold into our world. The scorching and dusty Indian cities seem like a distant past. The Castle’s Gothic façade, with its battlements and buttresses, looms startlingly before you. Stepping inside the vestibule leading to the hall, the visitor is greeted by meticulously restored antique furnishings and objets d’art complementing the Medieval arches and wood panelling. Light streams through the atrium glass onto the Pompeii inspired marble floor intensifying the drama further. The sheer splendour and superlative style is carried forward into the other public rooms exhibiting cast-iron fireplaces and hand-carved Gothic chimneypieces. The Parlour, Refectory dining room and the Conservatory on the premier étage overlooking the rambling gardens and pool are fine illustrations of good taste and workmanship. The elaborate clover trelliswork in The Parlour epitomises feminine sophistication. In contrast, a masculine sentiment is portrayed in the Refectory with its coffered wooden ceiling opening onto a magnificent vaulted veranda. The remarkable Turret on the east houses the spiral staircase leading up to the guest chambers and the subterranean Dungeon bar. //www.thehimalayan.com The Himalayan Resort - the best aerial videos
