A cosy atmosphere in the resort premises. Well appointed-rooms and cottages, a small lawn,greenery all round and a reception with sides opened giving a sense of space. The well-stocked bar and the dining hall form part of a separate block.
There is a spa too but I couldn't make use of it.
Two things stand out--- 1) The location in the heart of Pokara near the lake ( though the lake is not visible from the resort) 2) The ever-smiling and friendly staff who are always eager to please starting from the owner to the sweeper.
An example of their service-- As I found there was no coffee-maker in my room I ordered a pot of coffee in the cold,rainy morning.I casually mentioned the absence of a coffee-maker to the manager. Imagine my surprise, when during check-out, I wanted to pay for the pot of coffee, the manager said that he had made it complimentary since I had pointed out the absence of a coffee-maker.
It rained the whole day and in the evening as the skies cleared, the manager literally pushed us to the terrace so that we could have a glimpse of the snow-capped Himalayas. An ideal place to unwind at Pokara.
