We were on a packaged tour of Kathmandu and pokhara. But Lake Begnas was always on our mind. Searching and researching we tweaked our itinerary and included our stay at Begnas lake resort. And oh boy were we happy and it was bang on what we dreamed of. Booking ourselves to a water front cottage, we were into a pleasant surprise where the General manager Mr Arjun upgraded our stay to the premier room. Our room was overlooking the beautiful and serene Begnas Lake. The resort is a welcome move away from the hustle and bustle of the city life, calm and serenity is just the beginning. Very well maintained nature resort I would say.
The resort caters to predominantly European guests and the walk around the resort with stone steps all around was a very good cardio exercise.
The following points sums it up
Breakfast served is basically American. They have a larger than life Ayurveda menu with huge selection. The fresh water Begnas grilled fish for dinner was awesome.
The staff are very polite and friendly and cater to all your needs, but room service can be sometimes slow.
Hot water availability is in two slots 6 hours every day
Very eco-friendly and most of their produce is home grown
Twenty minutes boat ride( provided by the resort) to the resort you get to enjoy the ride for free. We took an additional boat ride early morning at 7:00 which was arranged by the resort using the local people and the price was very reasonable ( 250 rupees for half hour)
The food at the resort restaurant was not spicy since they were catering to western/european guests)
The inhouse Ayurveda massage center is nice, but would prefer if they used white sheets instead of bottle green( one can then tell the sanitisation of the linen)
Was mentioned that the power cuts at 10:00pm but there was no such cut, a welcome surprise.
Not a place if you expect loud noise and pollution
Pictures say a thousand words
