Radisson Individual Retreats allows us the opportunity to enable and co-create unparalleled experiences for guests in every part of India, especially in tier-II and III cities. Considering the heavy footfall of travelers visiting Himachal Pradesh and especially Manali, the hotel’s strategic location will be one of its key USPs.

In addition to the exquisite accommodations, guests can enjoy a refreshing swim with stunning views at the hotel’s outdoor heated pool. The hotel boasts a fitness center and spa that offers a wide range of treatments, from relaxing massages and therapies drawing inspiration from Himalayan healing traditions to rejuvenating facials.
