“Don't stay elsewhere in Pokhara”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Visited in early June 2014. Undoubtedly the best hotel in our Nepal Trip in terms of service. Mr. Hasta at the dining room, Mr Tiwari at the front office were always smilingly helpful. There were a few unpleasant faces but majority of the staff just personified brilliant service.


This lodge is very unique with its ambient, picture perfect, true to nature surroundings. Forest, hills, lake, snow capped Annapurna, beautifully maintained garden. One is right amidst nature. Their raft to reach the hotel itself started of a unique experience.


Coming to their rooms, they had very bad damp smell in some of the older non renovated rooms. With their electricity on and off the air conditioner would take ages to switch on or would remain completely off. Our first night was a nightmare. On the second night we shifted to a newer room which one can figure out by the new air conditioner. This room had no issues and even with the fluctuating electricity the air con worked perfectly fine. Both the rooms we stayed at were classic . Renovation for the rooms is underway. The deluxe rooms, very few in number, they somehow were reluctant to give them with many excuses. They do not provide kettle in the room. View from the rooms - there is none. You have to be around the dining area or in the presidential suite for the spectacular views. Wifi is free at the dining area and is chargeable at the rooms.


We had breakfast, lunch and dinner at the property and all our meals were excellent. The staff just made the whole experience more enjoyable.


Paragliding and ultra light flight are two not to be missed activities for those even little willing. On the way to Kathmandu the Manakamna temple cable car should not be missed.

Room Tip: Ask them to give renovated rooms. Don't stay in the old rooms with damp smell and not proper air...

A great location and an even better approach to the resort via the Fewa lake. Ideally located from all places of interest in Pokhara. Tastefully done rooms. Warm hearted service along with exceptional food quality in the in-house restaurant. Worth the price & time.

We stayed in Fishtail Lodge in Pokhara from June 11th-June14th, 2014. It is an idyllic location with complete peace and serenity in the surroundings. Access to the resort in also only through a tug-ferry , which makes it quite private and protected. The resort's rooms are slightly old and in heritage style, but they are well maintained and clean.
The service in the resort was also exemplary and we enjoyed our stay thoroughly. Our kids also enjoyed the swimming pool, which though small, was clean and well maintained.
The best part about this resort is its ideal location in Pokhara which I would say is the best compared to any other in Pohkara.
It is an oasis of peace and very serene. Fully recommend this resort to others who are visitingf Pokhara with family.

I with my family stayed at the Fish Tail Lodge, Pokhara, Nepal. The place was beyond what I had thought or imagined it to be. The place gives you an experience beyond words. It was just what I needed to relax. The staff is very prompt and curtious and the food is great. I loved it.

Accessible only by rope-pull raft, the Fishtail Lodge in Pokhara offered a few days relaxation and comparative inactivity at the end of a busy tour of India and Nepal. The location is amazing; on a lake with a view of the Annapurna range from the garden and breakfast area. And whilst it is easy to relax in the seclusion of the lodge there are also things to do if you feel like being more active. There are things to do on the lake, there are places to visit and the mountains are accessible. Pokhara town is also worth a visit and compared to the cities in Nepal are lightly populated and tranquil. It was the perfect way to end the trip and I would return to Fishtail Lodge if I happen to be in that part of the world again.

Fish tail lodge has a pleasant, warm and wow approach to hospitality. I visited earlier this month with my mother, being flower lovers, we both enjoyed beautifully manicured gardens and lawns. Being able to admire the snowladden Annapurna mountain range from the hotel patio is breathtaking. Rooms are clean, cozy and chic. Staff are amicable and helpful. Food is tastefully prepared. Definitely will be going back...
