It's a wonderful property, nice location and excellent staff. Each and every staff you meet during the day greets you. Food is okay however they need to add more variety to the buffet breakfast. The resort is located at other side of the lake and you have to board a platform which is towed by a person on the other... More

This has to be the most enviable location in Pokhara. The Fish Tail Lodge offers guests spectacular views across Phewa Lake and the natural forest. This Pokhara Hotel is in a league of its own when it comes to locality. Access across to the Fish Tail Lodge is by boat. Expertly handled by the hotel staff the short trip just... More

We spent 5 days at this wonderful hotel - 3 days before our trek and 2 days after. Our kids enjoyed the pool and the garden and we enjoyed the quietness and the world class view. Breakfast was good and could be enjoyed outside looking at the mountains.

We have plenty of good memories while staying here. We learnt a lot about Nepalist people, food and culture. From the gardener to our concierge, they are very attentive and resourceful. We met our boatmen that took us from the hotel to the nearest temple, then to our jungle trekking to see the World Peace Pagoda. There was zero minute... More

I was staying at Fishtail lodge when the earthquake struck. I decided to stay until I managed to get a flight out. The staff carried on with their normal routine despite the quakes continuing however nothing was too much trouble for them. This was welcome as it eased the stress of an extremely difficult situation. The lodge is in a... More

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
