About the hotel
In this magical location stands LaRiSa, the boutique resort. The name is inspired from the local language of Lahul. La signifies that which is above, Ri, the mountains, and Sa means the earth. And everything at LaRiSa, high in the mountains, feels like its come from the earth, just like its name. Orchards stretch out in seemingly endless waves of apple trees. Cottages of stone and wood blend seamlessly into the landscape. And a bounty of flowers, vegetables, beans and herbs grow in the garden beyond.
Every place tells a story and the four Premier Luxury Suites at LaRiSa tell a tale of leisure and discovery. In every room, there seems to be something to marvel at. The glowing, walnut wood of the desk beckons you to pick up a pen and find the poet in you. The balcony invites you to stretch out on the recliner and cast your gaze towards the misty mountains on one side, and the verdant orchards and swimming pool on the other. And the glass walls surrounding the Jacuzzi ensure that you have Nature within your sight, even while lingering in its gurgling waters.
The mountain air builds up an appetite and the restaurant at this boutique resort offers a variety of food to satiate it. There is local Kullu cuisine, full of energy, barley and maize. It tastes like Tibet, Punjab and Europe, all at the same time and fires you up on cold, windy days. Authentic Kullu food is a treat that is hard to find anywhere else so youll want to stock up while youre here. Continental food like pasta, pizza and other dishes that were adopted along with European settlers have also been put on the menu (and our chefs fingertips).
LaRiSa also has many excellent spots to curl up and read, so weave put together a library to match. Weve got a mixed bag of books that will go wonderfully with cups of hot chocolate and freshly brewed tea. As will the collection of films lined up in the mini-theatre. There are enough titles to make you wish you were staying forever. Just like the kids, probably only leave the playroom under the spell of the mountains, where they can plant a tree to call their own, and visit it as it grows.
