This 3,500-square-foot Manali homestay in the serene village of Pangan is a testament to the art of blending local Himachali craftsmanship with nature's inherent beauty, offering an environment of subtle charm and minimalist luxury.
Thoughtfully designed by Tharbus Designs, this Manali homestay is a manifestation of harmony with the surrounding landscape. Throughout the homestay, one encounters a symphony of natural materials, including rugged stone walls, rich wooden accents, and handcrafted furnishings.
Boasting mud and stone walls, wooden furnishings, Himalayan motif rugs and locally sourced artefacts, the space exudes character and elegance. With five bedrooms, a spacious ground-floor common area, and a warm host family, the homestay encourages unhurried mountain living.
The structure is seamlessly spread across three levels. The ground floor presents an open design concept, featuring a spacious common living / dining area with scenic windows. This unique layout beckons guests to enjoy leisurely conversations and quiet moments of contemplation. The upper 02 floors house five charming bedrooms, each offering a cozy sanctuary. Dipped in a palette of natural colors and enhanced by wooden flooring, the bedrooms ensure restful nights while offering uninterrupted views of the Himalayan landscape through their oversized windows and private balcony.

Hushstay x Hunzuru's five bedrooms, consisting of 04 similar rooms and 01 master suite, are each infused with natural materials that merge meticulously with the Himalayan outdoors. The thick mud walls, crafted through an age-old practice of mud-plastering transport you back to a time-honored way of life.
Himalayan motifs grace the rugs, and wooden flooring resonates with the rustic charm of the region. Handmade lamps cast a warm, inviting glow, while large windows and balconies frame breathtaking mountain vistas, allowing the Himalayan sunlight to dapple the interiors. The muted color palette, inspired by the earthy tones of the rich soil and weathered rocks, imbues the space with a soothing presence that grounds you in the natural surroundings.
The master suite stands out with its stone and wood-dominated materials, featuring a four-poster bed thoughtfully positioned to maximize panoramic views. The calming greys of the local stone and the mossy green accents drawn from the surrounding flora create an ambience of pure tranquillity.
