Manu's hospitality is commendable... His idea of providing comfortable accomodation in off-beat Himachal has really taken off very well... Clean basic rooms, great location & friendly staff make this place worth every penny spent...
For first time trekkers like us, Manu made a great arrangements that left us with memories to cherish...

Room Tip: Would recommend Valley side rooms on first floor..

We had gone for summer vacation from Bangalore with visit to Manali ,Kullu and finally Sojha. The Drive from Manali is about 3 hrs . The solace retreat was recommended to us by a friend who likes nothing else than to revert back to Solace retreat, so we were very curious to see this place. the first thing that hits your senses after the hustle bustle of a normal tourist place is the complete silence ,we are so used to city sounds that we have really not known what silence means and how energizing it can be . On arrival we were met by Mr. Manu (owner) who had organised a lavish tea knowing about our arrival beforehand. The first impression you get of the property is back to nature as the management of this property have tried to keep it as near to nature as possible w/o really compromising on the comfort of the guests. Sipping tea with pakoras and sandwiches in the dining hall which is on the top floor and watching green mountains right in front is an experience which cannot be described in words. there are rooms on two floors each floor having a glass balcony which have been tastefully decorated and you can a clear view of mountains around you .On a clear day you can see five mountain ranges right up to snow clad dhauladhar . The climate is cold and as such you require warm clothing. The staff especially, jogindar and mamu took special care to see we were comfortable and kept my kids entertained. We also took a trek to serolsar lake alongwith kids which is about 10 km from resort and includes 5 km drive to jalori pass and 5km trek (comfortable hike) and made night camp in tentage at serolsar lake which was arranged by manu (owner) which was a gr8 experience for us and kids also. Next day we went for picnic to the banks of Tirthan River which is famous for fresh water trout, we were provided with packed lunch by the retreat people. Final two days we relaxed at the retreat reenergizing and distressing ourselves and enjoying the hospitality of the retreat staff. The exception of the trip was the great food and homely atmosphere that the retreat could provide us being so far away from home. Finally we bade good bye to the staff whom my kids had become very fond of with the promise to come back next year.
If you are looking for shopping, discos, movies then the place is definitely not for you, but if you are looking for peace, connecting with nature, yourself and quality time your family or friends then i would definitely recommend solace retreat.

We were introduced to Solace Retreat by a Travel Agent. The location of the retreat is perfect. A gr8 place for relaxation, away from hustle and bustle in the laps of nature. Nature is at its best. Not at all a fancy place but rather more on the cosier and homely side. The food served here is the best i ever had in a hill station. Very friendly staff, goes out of the way to make your stay comfortable and memorable.......................
The owner Mr. Manu is a gr8 guy to sit and chat with, very knowledgeable abt local culture and nature, a very lively guy. Sham Singh (Mamu) is another gem in thr team who knows almost everything abt local herbs and traditional medicines. One must take him along on treks or nature walks. Very difficult to find such humble peoples......................
A must must place to visit, Full endorsements.................

Travelling from Manali to Shoja was a good experience. We had a warm welcome by Manu and his team! The food was awesome! Sham did take us for an evening walk. And it was all fun! The next day trek to the lake was great! All in all it was a memorable stay at Solace.
