Sitting on top
of the Potohar, nestled against the pristine Margallas, and
looking over the plains of Peshawar and Lahore, the brick
and mortar of Islamabad may be modern, but its culture and
traditions are embedded in the centuries of our history that
have unfolded between the ranges of Khyber and Bolan and the
valley of Mehran.
And in many
ways, The Monal – named after a pheasant of rare and
exquisite beauty dwelling a little further north – epitomes
this amalgam of the modern and the ancient. The resort is a
touch of modernity set in pastoral idyll. Situated at a
height of about 1173 meters above sea level, it is equipped
with the latest facilities, but offers an ambience
cultivated by heritage.
At The Monal we
take pride in offering an authentic Pakistani cuisine that
is as rich and diverse as our legacy. It has been produced
by the fusion of indigenous flavors and aromas with culinary
bequests from Arabia, Persia and Central Asia, as the many
tribes, people and cultures blended over centuries across
the valleys and plains of the Indus.
The road to The
Monal undulates along the thick verdure of the Margallas as
if etched in emeralds. It opens up both to the local and
tourist a panorama of Allah’s glory. The Faisal Mosque and
the white rise of the Constitutional Avenue melt away
picturesquely into the bucolic horizons of the Punjab and
Merely driving up to The Monal is an experience that the
heart cherishes long after. Whether you choose to begin your
journey whilst the sun shines down on the hills, or whether
you prefer the romance of a moonlit drive, your experience
shall remain unforgettable.
DRAMATIC VIEWS & SUNSETS
Sunset at The
Monal offers some of nature’s most glorious moments. Crimson
skies over the rapid shadows of a hilly dusk; the rustle of
leaves in a gentle breeze; soft calls of birds as they climb
to roost; and if the day has been warm, an occasional
chirpings of crickets. Finally, twilight settles in the
valleys against the backdrop of Islamabad’s golden radiance.
“spirals and wood” the architectural splendour of The Monal
blends unobtrusively into the natural beauty surrounding it.
And yet the building is designed to offer luxurious dining
in a sophisticated environment. Awaiting you are four
spacious parking lots that can hold up to 250 cars, with
reserved parking slots for persons with disability. Once you
enter from any of the two entrance, one of which is ramp to
facilitate prams and wheelchairs, our executive staff
receives, guides and serve you with the courtesy and
hospitality that is an-old tradition of the region.
