A beautiful suspension bridge... a narrow path through apple orchards laden with ripe fruit and we were home! An amazingly beautiful property - more home stay than hotel - for the sheer comfort it offers, was unlike any place I had stayed in through my travels across the country. Beautiful rooms, lovely bathrooms, endless hot water supply, the cleanest and softest bath and bed linen... We were Bikers being spoiled silly :) The best was yet to come.... the terrace cafe!! The huge terrace and the little cafe - done up so creatively with motorcycle spares and parts had us riveted. The views in every direction was stunning.. The snow covered ranges of Dhauladhar in the back yard, the foggy peaks of Solang and Rohtang to one side, I could sit here all day and soak this in...then the super hot mugs of tea arrived :) Godwin and Sneh's labour of love - Ride Inn isn't for bikers alone.. It's for people who love the hills and love the peace and quiet there. Its for people who appreciate warm, unobtrusive hospitality and generally dislike maddening crowds and crowded places. Dinner was from an a la carte menu and we chose Thai curry and rice... I am a chef and I say this.. It does not get any better in most gourmet restaurants in Mumbai. Hot vermicilli payasam at the end of it all and Luka, their few weeks old pup snuggling up at my feet, Bliss :)
Thanks Guys for everything... we'll be back soon!
RIDEINN is a motorcycle themed cafe and boutique hotel located across Nehrukund Bridge, 5 km north of main town Manali en route to Rohtang Pass. RIDE INN nestles amidst apple, apricot & cherry orchards, with a 360* stunning view of the snow capped mountains and the Beas river flowing right beside our property. While it is quietly tucked away in serene natural surroundings offering peace and solitude, it also provides easy access to main town Manali.
Designed to enhance comfort & the feeling of personal space - the exteriors of the resort have been inspired by old Himachali Kathkuni architecture. Attention to detail in design, layout, furniture & lighting will be evident as soon as one steps into the resort. The interiors are classic and provide all the modern amenities one expects. Open spaces have been landscaped into lush, green gardens that are full of flowers. A designated bonfire area is present to keep you warm on colder nights.
The added attraction is the roof top cafe furnished out of old motorcycle parts. The cafe serves a comprehensive menu for varied palates. Our staff is ready to serve & strive for your satisfaction.
