THE EXPERIENCE

"Slow living isn't about determining how little we can live with – it's about working out what we simply can't live without."

In a world where life moves at breakneck speed, finding moments of stillness and serenity has become increasingly rare. Yet, amidst the chaos, there's a growing desire to slow down, to savour the simple pleasures, and to reconnect with the rhythms of nature. It's in this quest for a slower, more meaningful existence that this soulful sanctuary came into existence.

Set against the backdrop of the beautiful Parvati Valley, about 10 kms before Kasol and 25 kms from the Bhuntar Airport, in a quiet and peaceful village called Jari, Hushstay x Slow Life is a minimalistic 04 Bedroom Earthy Cottage that invites you to step off the treadmill of modern life and into a world where time seems to stand still. As you approach, the rustic charm of the Himalayas envelops you, inviting you to embark on a journey of tranquillity and introspection. Upon arrival, you are greeted by the soothing embrace of traditional Kath-Kuni architecture, a testament to the timeless wisdom of the mountains.

 

Here, amidst the rustic elegance of mud-finished walls and reclaimed wooden beams, every corner tells a story of thoughtful design and intentional living. Large windows frame panoramic views of apple orchards and the mountains of Parvati Valley, inviting you to pause, breathe, and immerse yourself in the beauty of the natural world.

In a world that never stops moving, Hushstay x Slow Life offers a welcome respite – a chance to slow down, reconnect, and rediscover the joy of simply being.

A little extra for Hushstays Guests

Walk around the Orchards

Let our staff take you on a guided nature walk through the orchards around the estate.  We’d like you and your family to connect with the farm and experience firsthand the whole journey right from plantation to pollination and then harvest. It would be our pleasure to introduce you and your family to farm life.

THE SPACE

Nestled amidst the tranquil embrace of the Himalayas, Slow Life beckons with its timeless charm and rustic elegance. Designed by Studio Nirvana, this sanctuary is a testament to the harmonious fusion of traditional Kath-Kuni architecture and modern sensibilities.

As you step inside, mud-finished walls envelop you in a cool embrace during summers and a cozy warmth during winters, while minimalist design principles ensure that every element serves a purpose. The earthy vibe permeates every corner, creating a serene retreat where simplicity reigns supreme.

The architecture, with its exposed stone walls and reclaimed wooden beams, exudes a sense of timeless beauty. Large windows frame sweeping views of the surrounding mountains, inviting you to pause and drink in the natural splendor. Bedrooms open up to panoramic vistas, offering a glimpse of the majestic landscape that lies beyond. Reusing wood and stone from abandoned buildings on the property, the architect has breathed new life into these materials, infusing each space with a sense of history and authenticity.

In the dining room, earthy tones and natural wood grains set the stage for intimate gatherings and meaningful conversations. Here, a round tabletop crafted from discarded wooden offcuts serves as a symbol of sustainability and resourcefulness. Even the console in the corridor, with its legs made from reclaimed wood, tells a story of thoughtful design and mindful living.
 

At Slow Life, every detail has been carefully considered to create a space that nourishes the body, mind, and soul. It's a place where simplicity reigns supreme, and where the beauty of nature takes center stage. So come, escape the frenetic pace of modern life, and rediscover the joy of living slowly amidst the timeless beauty of the Himalayas.

ROOMS

THE ROOMS

Step into one of Slow Life's meticulously curated rooms, where minimalist design meets maximum comfort. Each room is a sanctuary of serenity, featuring large windows that flood the space with natural light and offer breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains. Soft, dim lights create a cozy ambiance, while plush rugs and comfortable bedding invite you to unwind and relax. The attached bathrooms are meticulously designed, offering a touch of raw elegance, with their perfectly unfinished finishes.

Spread across two floors, the upper level boasts a spacious living and dining area, where earthy tones and natural textures create a welcoming atmosphere. Two bedrooms on this floor offer privacy and comfort, with every detail designed to enhance your experience.

On the ground floor, two additional rooms offer a private entrance that opens up to the apple orchard, inviting you to connect with nature from the moment you wake up. And for those seeking a little extra seclusion, a cozy attic room awaits, perfect for lazy afternoons spent lost in thought or lost in a good book.
