We spent 2 nights with family at Fish Tail Lodge in April 2015, and absolutely loved the experience. The lodge sits in the lap of the Himalayas, offering breathtaking sights of various snowcapped peaks of three ranges, Machhapuchchhre (or Fishtail), Annapurna and Dhaulagiri, the 2 latter being 8000-ers. Our first morning, we rushed out at 6.30am for a glimpse of... More

This hotel has by far the best view in Pokara! The small boat over the water is a fun way to reach the hotel. The rooms are clean and adequate and the staff helpful. The location is just perfect. Only negative feedback is breakfast is expansive ( for nepal prices) $15 per person and the wifi should be free. It... More

After a week or so in noisy and dusty Kathmandu we went to Pokhara. It was a wonderful spot, situated on an island (at least we arrived by boat), it was peaceful and meditative. We saw no tigers, neither mosquitoes, and we were well taken care of. The spa was great, perfect after trekkeing. Remember to sit on the right... More

Super experience and the view is awesome, the rooms are big and very clean. Huge property, the staffs are very polite and courteous. the only connectivity to the hotel is either a boat or a hand pulled raft kind of a thing. A must visit place. I totally loved my stay here.

My parents stayed here in the 1970's as part of a cultural tour, it was always on my list. From the moment you arrive its like stepping back 50+ years a rope drawn ferry to a island with incredible views across the lake to Annapurna and Fishtail. I have stayed since the 90's many times, what makes this hotel is... More

We visited Pokhara from Lumbini during our recent trip to Nepal. Frankly, we were quite unprepared for the scenic setting of the hotel. Every one from the staff was very courteous, friendly and helpful at all times. The dining area offers a view of the Annapurna Range of the Himalayas. One can opt to sit outside the dining hall to...

Fishtail does not even bask in the shadow of the Fisthtail peak but nevertheless it is perhaps the neatest and the cleanest place in Pokhara. We loved it. The staff are fussy and the management is greedy, but the place is an island of peace and calm. There isn't much in Pokhara apart from the sites, the Tibetan shopping and... More

I have been visiting Nepal since 1969 but only recently stayed at the Fishtail (2013 & 2014). It is without question the best hotel I have ever stayed in Nepal and the only one (in my experience) that has local ambiance combined with great location, great food and service for a reasonable price. All considered, this is one of the... More
