The guest agrees to be held responsible for any and all charges incurred during the stay and agrees to settle all his account on the demand. The guest authorises the hotel management to charge his/her credit/debit card for any charges not settled upon departure.

    • All our rooms are adorned with blue pine panels without chemical coatings.

The management does not take responsibility for providing its guests any fragrance-free rooms, since it is a natural characteristic of blue pine wood.

    • Urvashi’s Retreat is located amidst apple orchards in the upper Manali region of Himachal Pradesh. Along with pristine Himalayan beauty, the region is inhabited by several other living species of nature. While the management supervises the routine pest control protocol, our guests are requested to bear with us should they encounter rodents, insects or geckos in or around the premises. Should they require assistance, our guests are welcome to contact the management or house keeping staff, who will assist them in driving the species out of our premises.

    • The hotel is also home to our in-house French bulldogs, Cleopatra and Tsarina. While they mean no harm and are not ferocious, their playful traits might repel some guests who prefer to stay at a distance from dogs. Cleo and Tsarina reside in the owner’s private residence (Brooks Villa), which adjoins the property and are fortified within this estate at all times. However, in case they happen to stay into the hotel premises (highly unlikely without supervision), we request you not to panic and to contact the nearest staff member, who will take them back to Brooks Villa. We repeat our genuine commitment to avoid any such undesirable encounter between them and our guests, and assure you our highest attention in securing your comfort. On the contrary, for all dog-loving guests, Cleo and Tsarina enjoy making new friends and will gladly visit you for a small play session under our staff member’s supervision.

For guests who wish to smoke, ashtrays have been placed in the hotel’s various balconies and outdoor areas. Kindly refrain from discarding your cigarette stubs anywhere outside fireproof bins or the hotel’s ashtrays. All rooms are equipped with fire alarms, and thus, guests are requested once more against consuming cigarettes in the hotel’s indoor premises. In case of such an occurrence, the hotel’s fire alarms will sound off, causing disturbance not only to the hotel staff, but also to your fellow guests. Most importantly, given the hotel’s extensive use of wooden construction, smoking indoors stands as a major fire hazard and is likely to cause irreparable damage to the property, which is likely to entail legal discipline being expended against the violating guest, as well as a financial penalty that might run in multi-folds of the material’s original cost and labour charges.

    • All guests at Urvashi’s Retreat are entitled to availing bonfires as a premium service upon prior request and subject to the weather conditions.

In both cases, this is thoroughly justified as to avoid any risk of burning / damage to the hotel premises or foliage. All guests seeking a bonfire setup are therefore requested to comply by the horticulturist’s discretion.


    • Urvashi’s Retreat has been constructed using very high quality gradings of wood. Thus, all guests are requested to kindly refrain from using the hotel wood frames, railings and furniture for the purpose of drying / sunning their clothing.
