Our family’s stay at Rass Mandal for a recent reunion—grandparents, parents, young children—was a lovely experience for all of us. Gathering from Washington, D.C., Maryland, Colorado, and Oregon, we found the compound to be a grand mixture: exotic and richly textured while at the same time inviting and welcoming. A serene mountainside retreat, Rass Mandal offers both solitude and a communal experience. From morning yoga sessions at the pavilion to afternoons at poolside to meals at its large dining table, Rass Mandal provided everything our family could hope for to ensure a happy and satisfying get-together. We’ll remember our time there fondly for many years.
