Situated in the heart of the Bipasha valley of the Himalayan Devbhumi, the ‘Valley of the Gods’, comparatively unexplored to many, Urvashi’s Retreat has been the summer getaway for Urvashi Singh, owner of the property and her family since the past two decades.


Its picturesque snow-topped mountains, rivers, wildlife, natural bounty and rich culture make it a unique destination indeed. Urvashi’s Retreat is a 6-room boutique home-stay along with a common dining room. Not only are these cottages surrounded by a panoramic mountain view, but stand on a thriving landscape furrowed by a babbling brook that meanders through the entire compound. Every aspect of the property boasts of a personalized touch that uniquely blends rusticity and splendor to create a soul-lifting getaway.


Set in a style that is partially quaint and slightly edgy, the Retreat is a luxury-centric, personally crafted attempt at synthesizing nature and premium hospitality.


Ever since the initiation of the Retreat, it has been a conscious effort on the part of the hosts to source locally. It is interesting to note that all the stones used in the exteriors of the homestay have been sourced from the very boulders upon which we stand. The wooden-paneling has been done using genuine, local wood, crafted by a team of Himachali carpenters themselves.


This locality is situated almost a thousand feet above Manali, promises a colder climate. At the same time, owing to the broadness of the Bipasha valley, Shanag is blessed with plenty of perennial sunshine, which is unlikely in several places, especially during the winter months.


The hosts are happy to extend their home, an Himalayan escape that is very close to their heart.
