We started our journey back in 2001, with 1 luxury cottage. Over the years, Sojourn has become a household name when it comes to hospitality in Manali. From a cottage with 3 bedrooms, we now offer 3 cottages, 2 apartments and a boutique suite. How did this happen? Sojourn has continued to furnish unparalleled hospitality, ever since we started out. We gave you personalized and efficient service, and made your experiences exclusive, and unforgettable.
But it’s you, our guests, who eventually become our friends, that are ultimately credible for our growth. We want to thank you for trusting us for your hospitality experiences. You gave us the opportunity to serve you, and we thanked you with our sincere efforts.
Sojourn Homes & Cottages is a 10 minutes drive from the town of Manali. We’re situated at Kanyal hills, in the wilderness, on an area of 1 acre. Sojourn is run by a couple, viz. Sarabjeet Singh ‘Shabu’ and Ritu. Shabu also runs the popular restaurant ‘Sher-E-Punjab’ in Manali, while Ritu is an artist. Together they have planned and designed Sojourn and have put their heart and soul into it, and it has been designed for maximal relaxation, so you can completely let go, and just be, without a single thought in your mind.
