It’s our pleasure to welcome you to Manas. We’re a 28 year old retreat situated in the misty hills of Igatpuri, Maharashtra. Nestled amidst the green western ghats, Igatpuri is a lovely hideaway at a short 130 kms from Mumbai. Known to be a paradise for nature and adventure lovers, this quaint hill station has been a sought after destination since the British era. We discovered this peaceful village in 1989 and thus began our journey to establish a comfortable retreat that resonates with the gentle gradient of the sahyadri mountain range.
Manas, in Sanskrit, means ‘processing mind’ or ‘to think’. It also holds Buddhist references as one of three overlapping terms used in the nikayas to ‘refer to the mind’ or ‘one’s mental process as a whole’. We mention this, because that’s what we have to offer to you- to let go off the city chaos and reprocess your mind to feel refreshed. Here is an opportunity for you to disconnect and immerse yourself in the tranquillity of monsoons and denseness of misty mountains. We assure to offer you a homely stay amidst the lush green views that have the capacity to produce a pensive mood equivalent to that of joy.
At Manas, as you will gather, we’re all nature enthusiasts with abundant love for both flora & fauna alike. We’ve recently developed it to be wholly pet friendly. To us, this concept has redefined rejuvenation. As our guest, we will be delighted to host you along with your beloved pets.
