The Orchard House by Aamod, Manali, Himachal Pradesh
We’re all familiar with Manali. And we all have probably been there too at least once in our lives. And yet, we still recommend revisiting for various reasons. This time when you go, let it be for The Orchard House by Aamod.
Ideally located in an apple orchard not far from Manali’s attractions yet distant enough from the town’s busyness, it is a seven-room private villa that offers all things idyllic. By the look of it, it comes across as a beautifully rustic cottage with sloping roofs, surrounded by gazillion apple trees. Inside, comfortable rooms with huge windows offer stunning views of the mighty snow capped mountains. But your stay here will go beyond the ‘luxurious’ amenities in your room and it is your experience of Aamod’s unique services which will be the highlight.
Let’s start with food. Although the resort serves delicious multi-cuisine dishes, their traditional Himachali delicacies are highly recommended. There’s also the choice of ‘fishing’ your own dinner and the culinary team will have it prepared for you. Relish your meals in the comfort of your room or have a table laid anywhere you like – in the gardens under the sun or around bonfire under a starlit sky – the team at Aamod will happily serve you.
Then comes ‘sightseeing’. Anybody would suggest you go to the Hidimba Devi Temple, the Mall Road, Solang Valley and Rohtang Paas of course. But would you not like to go for a village walk instead? Get an insight in the lives of the locals, their cultures, their stories. Aamod will curate a beautiful experience for you. Their staff, most of them being locals themselves, would generously guide your way through a Manali you’d have never known.
This private villa is delight to stay at. More than anything else, The Orchard House by Aamod comes with a great sense of tranquility – something that is rare in a town as popular as Manali.
