It’s easy to see why the owners decided to build Nepal’s first villa resort here. Set on a working farm and surrounded by rice paddies and forest, with a backdrop of the Himalayas, the site is spectacular. The designers worked with local materials and incorporated Nepalese art to create a luxe resort that never forgets where it is. All 15 villas feature floor-to-ceiling windows and a terrace with mountain views and start at 861 square feet. They’re decked out with hardwood floors, elegant drapes, hot tubs and colorful Nepalase fabrics and rugs. Because of its size, the resort never feels crowded and allows you to enjoy genuine Nepalese friendliness from staff who end up on first name terms with guests. The infinity pool takes center stage and is surrounded by sun loungers and daybeds and the Club House is home to a restaurant that serves Nepalese dishes and a small spa, which works local products into its treatments.
In the Area
Pokhara is a serious adventure hub. Most visitors head here to explore the hills and mountains. The third largest city in Nepal has three of the world’s 10 highest mountains within a 30 mile radius. Beyond hiking and climbing, the resort can arrange gliding and white water rafting. Guests more interested in spiritual rather than the physical activities can seek enlightenment at one of the many meditation centers nearby. The Garden Yiga Chozin Buddhist Meditation Centre offers free introductory sessions and longer workshops and retreats.
How to Get There
I stayed three nights at one of the Chalet rooms which are huge and equipped with all you need. Especially nice is the terrace which offers views towards the surrounding landscape including some mountains. Breakfast and food were very good. Food is prepared from local ingredients, partially growing on the resort compound with an international touch of the recipes, very tasty. A drawback for some might be the distance to Pokhara, the poor road for the last few kilometers and that you need to be picked-up (or walk across a bridge) by the hotel Jeep to cross a river and get into the compound. Yet, this again is also the plus of The Pavillons Himalayas as you are more or less alone within the nature and no busy tourist crowds are here. Staff was always extremely attentive and helpful arranging anything one needed. Would have been a good place to enjoy a little bit longer then three nights. Thanks to all!
Went to stay here for couple of days. Love the fact that this is on the middle of nowhere and it's so Tranquil.
The food here is grown in their organic farms and they have their own cows too produce their dairy. You can actually taste the freshness of the vegetables in the food.
They have a beautiful pool which overlooks the forests, which is exceptionally quiet.
I also liked the fact that they are entirely self sustainable as a resort and the fact that a huge portion of their profits goes towards education for local children.
Great and comfortable rooms. Good service
It was the best choice to stay at the pavilions Himalayas. While Reaching katamaundu you need to internal flight to reach to Pokhara and from the airport there it takes you 15 min to reach the hotel
You cross a lovely river into the wilderness and the lovely rice fields while you the hotel pavilions and it is for sure something unique. Amazing view for the Himalayas when the weather is clear and lovely pool from clean sweet water.
The food is from the small farm of the hotel and the taste fruit and rice dishes is wow
Fresh bottle of milk once u open ur room door every morning. It was a outstanding stay and experience
I will for sure visit again the lovely hotel and the lovely staff working there they were all amazing from the chef to the waiter to the housekeeping to the reception to the security and a big thanks to the GM
