Raison D'Etre is the only private riverfront home between Kullu & Manali that's open to guests. We have our own little river beach and an infinity pool overlooking the Beās.

Your cottage sits in a riverside orchard where we grow plums, peaches, nectarines apricots, apples, persimmons, strawberries & kiwis. Also, many of the herbs & vegetables that go into the food we serve - which could be Asian, European or Indian, depending upon the ingredients available and the whims of the resident chef.

Tempat
The guest cottage is separated from our home by a garden. The entire property sprawls across one acre and features an exclusive 250 foot riverfront with mountains along both banks.

To ensure there's lots of space and privacy, guest accommodation is limited to just 4 ensuite bedrooms over the entire 40,000 sq ft spread. The Spring Room is one of two on the ground floor.

There are fish ponds and water features all around, fed by the Spring at the centre of the orchard.

THE ARTESIAN SPRING
At the heart of Raison D'Etre is the property's raison d'etre - a perennial source of some of the purest spring water on earth.

By a happy accident, because we are deep in the bowl of the valley, the forces of nature conspire to push up crystal-clear, mineral-rich water from a Himalayan aquifer that's hundreds of feet below us, but stretches halfway up the mountains.

This is the water we drink; and there's so much of it naturally welling up, we use it for practically everything else - including the gravity-overflow infinity pool we swim in. Down the road, a top mineral water brand sources and sells this very water across India - by the bottle!

THE ACCOMODATION
The four bedrooms in the guest cottage, two on each floor, open into cosy living and dining areas.

Though similar in size, each room has a distinct character shaped by its decor - an eclectic mix of vintage & modern furniture, and art, collected over the years we spent living in different parts of India.

Bombay Parsi, Calcutta Zamindar, Delhi Art Deco and discarded antique pieces from the family haveli in UP rub shoulders with modern designs in mango, sheesham and railway sleeper wood. The locally crafted iron & brass wood-burning stoves are a special highlight.

Original paintings, numbered prints and ceramic works, some by well-known artists - many friends and colleagues - brighten up the walls.

More than the decor, though, we've tried to ensure that each room is designed to be practical and comfortable. Thoughtfully crafted spaces, airy and filled with light, are fitted out with ergonomically placed fixtures and fittings.

For the beds, especially, we've traded character for comfort. After all, a good night's sleep is necessary to truly appreciate the beauty, action and adventure Manali is famous for.

The bathrooms have been paid special attention to. They're designed to be cosy and free of drafts, even in winter. The fittings are Grohe, Jaquar or Vitra. There's plenty of solar-supplemented hot water on tap. And we've created our own line of indulgent bath products and toiletries, inspired by places around the valley. Everything is placed in environment-friendly dispensers, completely eliminating single-use plastic.

In addition to electric kettles, the living+dining spaces are equipped with microwaves and refrigerators. There's cutlery, crockery, water, wine & whisky glasses and a dish washing station. Board games are available on request.

Lokasi Anda

Manali, Himachal Pradesh, India

Raison D'Etre is located down a village road, just 250 meters off NH-3, on the right bank of the river Beas. We are roughly halfway between Kullu and Manali, either town being less than a 30 minute drive away.

This central location means easy access to not just the best of what both places have to offer, but to almost any other noteworthy spot in the valley. It also means many of the other beautiful valleys and Himalayan passes close by - Lahaul, Spiti, Parvati, Sainj, Banjar, Rohtang - are easier to visit for day trips if you are staying with us.

If you're looking, instead, for a destination to get away to and unwind, dare we say, Raison D'Etre is it. We should know: we spent close to 2 years on the same search before stumbling upon this location; and almost a decade building it!

Our village, Raison, is the only one along the valley floor that has remained untouched by the ravages of commercial tourism. That's because the sheer size of the land holdings here, with most of the land given over to large fruit orchards and country homes, has kept the mushrooming of ugly little hotels and shops at bay.

Unlike Kullu or Manali, where the weather is prone to extremes of heat or cold, Raison is located in the exact sweet spot of the valley, the truly temperate zone where the weather is perfect all year round. Other than the very few rainy days, there is no season when we do not spend our days outdoors.

The neighbourhood is peaceful, with quiet walking trails up the hills or along the river, and to villages nearby. It is a short walk to NH-3, the main Kullu-Manali highway, and to the tiny Raison market and bus stop.

Selama kenangan saya terbentang, saya dengan terobsesi menggambar satu adegan berulang di kelas seni: sebuah rumah kecil dengan atap merah miring yang terletak di tengah padang rumput yang bergulung, dikelilingi bunga matahari kuning raksasa. Keluarga 'hum do, humare do' yang sempurna yang terdiri dari tokoh - tokoh tongkat berdiri melambaikan tangan ke pemandangan di seberang sungai biru yang berkelok - kelok di latar depan. Lompatan ikan dengan senang hati. Jauh di kejauhan, matahari keemasan, dengan sinar panjang dan pendek bergantian, mengintip di antara pegunungan yang tertutup salju. Awan bunga kaul terhanyut dengan malas oleh...

Lalu, di sekolah seni, saya bertemu Nigher. Salah satu hal yang membuat kami tertawa adalah bagaimana dia melukis pemandangan yang sama selama bertahun - tahun. Siapa yang tahu, suatu hari, bahwa suatu hari kami akan menghidupkan fantasi itu di sebuah desa tepi sungai Himalaya bernama Raison, dan dengan senang hati menyebutnya Raison D'Etre - alasan keberadaan kami. Secara tak disangka, saya kira, inilah tujuan kami sepanjang hidup kami.

Saya dan N Bibi telah menghabiskan waktu mendekati satu dekade merancang, lanskap, dan membangun Raison D'Etre, rumah kami di tepi kanan sungai Beas, di lembah yang telah menjadi rumah bagi keluarga Nigher selama hampir dua abad.

Dan sepuluh tahun bahagia itu tidak termasuk delapan belas bulan yang kami habiskan untuk menjelajahi seluruh bentangan kaki bukit Himalaya barat, dari Kumaon hingga Kullu, untuk mencari lokasi yang sempurna untuk pensiun. Tempat dengan cuaca yang begitu baik, Anda bisa menghabiskan 360 hari dalam setahun di luar ruangan. Di mana kita tidak perlu menukar keindahan untuk praktis, petualangan untuk kenyamanan, atau kegembiraan untuk kedamaian.

Dengan senang hati, lokasi yang sempurna menemukan kami. Satu hektar tanah berharga yang hampir datar, dibingkai oleh perairan putih kristal di Beas di satu tepi, dan pegunungan Pir Panjal yang tertutup putih di luar yang lain. Perwujudan hidup dari impian masa kecil kita!

Beberapa saat yang lalu, kami membuka Raison D'Etre kepada pengunjung, dan ini adalah perjalanan yang menyenangkan sejak saat itu. Kami telah menjadi tuan rumah bagi, terinspirasi oleh, dan, dalam beberapa kasus, terinspirasi, banyak orang yang luar biasa. Mereka semua telah membuat kami merasa bahwa rumah yang sangat istimewa ini telah bernilai setiap saat dan upaya yang telah dilalui.

Saya berharap Anda akan berkunjung.
