Without doubt, the best physical property in Pokhara is Fishtail Lodge. To get there, you walk down to the lake, climb on a small raft, and are pulled across the water to the hotel by the raftsman. Climbing up, you come upon spectacularly beautiful grounds lined with fragrant, multicolored flowers and lovely trees. There is a nice pool and rowboats... More

Fish Tail Lodge was recommended to us by our local tour guide. The highlight of our arrival would have to be being pulled (or rowed) across the lake to get to the hotel, this was unique and brilliant! With only one night of stay and fishing being our intention, we could not have asked for a better location. Upon arrival,... More

The hotel is set in a beautiful location and is accessed either via a raft pulled across the lake or a row boat (this can be a trick if your in a hurry to get out or in so do leave time) Food here is in one resturant and was pretty good, will recommend the local dishes as very tasty.... More

This is a very quaint hotel accessible by a short row boat ride across the lake. It feels like reaching an island oasis when you land. All of the staff are very charming and extremely helpful form the bell boys to the reception staff and dining staff. The rooms are little lodges and although the beds seems slightly uncomfortable at... More

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... More

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.

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... More
