The Himalayas are not only the home of the mountains but mine. Ever felt like staying in the hills? Experiencing the peace and calmness in the surroundings there? I am sure most of us have that feeling once in every few days that we just want to move to the mountains and get a small home there for ourselves. A place where we could be amidst nature and feel the serenity. One of the hidden gem like this is Neeralaya. Known as the house by the river, this 4 acre sprawling property by the Suris can definitely be your home when you get the mountains calling. We visited Neeralaya sometime back and could not have asked for a better place to stay in the Kullu valley. Located in the Raison Village, 15 ;lmkms from the main town of Kullu, Neeralaya stands on the banks of river Beas and has been tastefully crafted.

As Neeralaya is located on the banks of the river Beas, the sound of the river makes you feel at calm instantly as you reach the place. The location of Neeralaya was specially chosen by Muneer Suri, the founder, as it used to be his play ground during his childhood. It was his dream to keep the place as it is along with providing an exceptional stay experience to his guests.

Neeralaya is a house by the river which offers peace and tranquility in abundance. Built majorly from the old houses in and around Raison village, this place is tastefully done to meet all the requirements of a perfect getaway in the mountains.

The cottages are built so artistically that they offer complete privacy and seclusion when it comes to spending some quality time together.

Waking up to the sounds of the water flowing in the Beas river is one of the best days to start your day. As you sip your tea sitting in the balcony of your cottage and watch the birds fly over the river the sun comes up and greets you good morning.
