Atul Madan - Antilog Vacations Manali Review AVB0097522
I was scheduled to go to Himachal Pradesh for a couple of weeks for my plan visit and client presentation and hence I decided to tag my fiancé along. Manali was one of the first on our list of places to visit because of its scenic beauty.
We decided to make our official bookings through the travel portal of Antilog vacations and they arranged for everything – right from cabs to flights to our holiday bookings. Located at around 250 km north of the state’s capital, Shimla, Manali nearest airport was the Kullu - Manali Airport (located in Bhuntar). The cab was waiting for us at the airport and the road from the airport to the Hotel Snowcrests Manor (our abode in Manali) was quite pleasant and thrilling.
Located near Log Hut Complex, the hotel is around 2km from the Mall Road. Snowfall had started happening slightly as we reached and this made the road slightly treacherous. The driver was apt and we did not face any major hassles. However we understood that because of the hilly terrain the resort could become very difficult to reach in times of heavy snowfall.
Some construction work in front of the hotel could’ve slightly hampered the view but our rooms on the posterior side still retained its tranquil charm and snow capped sights. One minor deterrent is the unavailability of lifts and consequently we had to climb our 3rd floor room☹. The room was very clean and orderly though. It was around 400 sq ft in area and had provisions of 24 x 7 geyser, room heater etc. The hotel as such was centrally heated to combat the chilly conditions.
The hotel was also popular for organizing theme parties during Christmas and New Year and hence these would be the best times to visit the Snowcrests Manor.
