About us

The idea of Urvashi’s Retreat was envisioned by Urvashi’s family earlier in 2014. After two decades of savouring the Himalayan delight as tourists, they envisioned paying the Devbhumi a homage of their own, but this time, as hosts. Nestled in the Bipasha valley, this vision of their materialised in the form of a boutique estate, wherein they fused local rusticity with luxurious living to craft a soul-lifting getaway. And thus, Urvashi’s Retreat was born. 

Classified today by the prestigious ITC WelcomHeritage group as one of their Nature Resorts, Urvashi’s retreat is a personally-run enterprise by Urvashi Singh and her multifunctional team. Set in a homely style with state of the art facilities, it is a luxury-centric and personally-crafted attempt at synthesising nature with premium hospitality.

The Logo

The Brand

Setting our logo in the particular colour scheme holds as much symbolism as it does aesthetic beauty. Green- dark viridescent in particular, primarily symbolises the natural abundance that has been bestowed upon the Himalayan Devbhumi. In addition, it is the colour of balance, harmony, renewal and tranquility. Embellished upon this viridescence is our logo in gold- the colour of perfection, luxury, quality and abundance- both, material as well as spiritual.

A crown above, and a set of keys below the centre jointly connote the supremacy of the Retreat in terms of its hospitality, quality and service as a boutique hotel. More specifically, golden keys are known to symbolise emotional warmth and contentment, which we believe are delivered through exemplary service. Dominating our logo, at its centre, is our mascot- the rather stylish and wellgroomed butler- Magenta.

A French Bulldog by breed, Magenta’s quirkiness, hospitable nature, and a general dislike towards the heat and everything mundane, highlights a great deal about the collective ethos of Urvashi’s Retreat. Small yet substantial, exhilarating yet relaxed, Magenta indicates a unique appeal offered by the Retreat to all its forthcoming visitors, and promises you a memorable experience.

ZERO SINGLE-USE PLASTIC WASTE with KAMA AYURVEDA

Urvashi’s Retreat is very proud to uphold ITC’s values of sustainable luxury through multifold conservatory and eco-friendly initiatives, out of which the idea of minimal house keeping waste is one.

Every year, hotels churn out astounding amounts of waste as a by-product of their bath amenities that are usually packaged in disposable plastic bottles. Not only does this amount to a wastage of bath amenities in the form of half-used bottles that are bound to be disposed, but also a very large amount of non-degradable plastic.

At Urvashi’s Retreat, we are honoured to partner with KAMA Ayurveda in an initiative that bottles genuine KAMA Ayurveda bath and beauty products in indigenously-made and environmentally-friendly terracotta dispensers. This newly devised method ensures minimal wastage and a drastic reduction in plastic use.

EV CHARGING STATION

Homepage
Urvashi’s Retreat is proud to count as Manali’s first-ever hotel enterprise to open its gates to an exclusive Electronic Vehicle (EV) Charging Station. In adapting to the increasing need for sustainable transport, we at Urvashi’s Retreat join hands with all forthcoming visitors who are committed to decreasing their carbon footprint. Venue: The EV Charging Station can be found in our main parking lot, right next to the security shed.

REUSEABLE GLASS BOTTLES WITH ISO CERTIFIED FILTERED WATER

Homepage
Every room and dining table is equipped with re-useable glass bottles which we fill with our iso certified filtered water. While we encourage guests to say no to plastic bottles, they can exercise their prerogative to opt for plastic packaged mineral water as well. Should one wish to assess the quality certificate of the water being bottled, a bar code is attached to each bottle’s neck.

PROMOTING LOCAL BRANDS & INITIATIVES

Homepage
Wherever possible, we opt for local manufacturers of jams, preserves and honey. This ensures that the livelihoods of smaller families are supported as opposed to larger corporations that already have high profitability.

PROVIDING LOCAL EMPLOYMENT

Homepage
Urvashi’s Retreat opts for local residents to work as its staff members. Skilled, semi-skilled or unskilled, we take pride in assimilating a diverse mix of personnel and train them to fulfil your hospitality needs. After all, hospitality knows no language, and is an emotion that is inbred in a person, regardless of their educational qualifications and expertise.
