Dates we were in Mandi – April 19 to 23
Hotel – Visco Resorts, 3 Kms before the Mandi bus stand.
Rooms – One word for the resort – “stunning”. We stayed in the family suite which is basically two rooms with attached bathrooms and a large balcony. The resort is located in a scenic place with the river at the back and the service folks are just awesome. Even though all the rooms were full the day we checked in due to a wedding, we never had to wait for the food or room cleaning services. Visco Resorts is definitely recommended for stay. Just don’t be scared of small spiders that appear every now and then – it’s set amidst trees and shrubs, they come with the territory. There are also a few monkeys around but they don’t come near the rooms.
Food – a must eat is the “pahari kofta”, Krishnan and I ate it all and just gave mom a spoonful :):). The vegetable and onion pakoras are also very good.
Wi-Fi – Airtel 3g works really well and is superfast. The Visco Resorts wi-fi also works well, when it does. It’s a little inconsistent but much better than having no wi-fi.
