It must be my 6th stay at this property. This time we were 20 family members. The service, food , rooms are same as I can recollect from my first trip. The standard is still well maintained. Good Job.
My sister and I arrived at the Himalayan Front on 03 Jan 2021 for a week long stay. Making the most of the new work from home (anywhere) model, we decided to park ourselves for a week in Pokhara. Without thinking much, we booked the Himalayan Front on a strong recommendation. Since we had to be working during the week, I had informed Saurav (the Booking Manager) in advance about our stay format and he very kindly offered us the option to select a room of our choice upon arrival. (Saurav has been an instrumental part of making our stay pleasant and convenient; he went out of his way at times to help us.) We received a warm welcome at the Front Desk, and decided to pick the corner room on the 5th floor to the extreme left. The room was spacious, with a comfortable work space, decent sized balcony, a pleasant bathroom (with bathtub) and in-room heating. The views from the terrace, the balcony of our room and in fact from the bed itself were marvelous. The Annapurna massif, with the Matterhorn of Nepal (Machhapuchhare) standing tall at its center, is quite a feast for the eyes, amidst the luxury and comfort which the Himalayan Front offers. The first week went by quickly, and we truly indulged ourselves in the facilities the hotel had to offer. I used the pool-side dining space each morning for my workout; the hotel does not have a fitness center, but they pre-arranged a yoga mat for me. We enjoyed our delectable meals prepared by the talented kitchen staff. Being a vegetarian and limited for options, I often requested the Chef to whip up something interesting, and eventually discovered my fav - Mushroom on Toast, with freshly baked butter croissant and black tea. One Friday evening, we requested the Chef for a bowl of loaded nachos; I was pleasantly surprised at his willingness - he patiently noted the recipe down, which I had downloaded from a YouTube video, and soon after we had the best evening binge to go with our glasses of red wine. We initially struggled with the Wi-Fi, but the hotel staff very kindly attended to us each time we suffered an outage. It is recommended to buy a local sim if you intend on staying longer, which we later realized we should have done right away. But then, we had not intended on staying for as long as we did. Over the weekend, the tour partners of the hotel, arranged a day long trip for us to the temples, the Gupteshwar Mahadev cave and the Fewa lake. We had a nice lunch at the sister property, called the WaterFront, situated by the Lake. Tip - watch the sunset over the lake, and do make sure to explore the lakeside market, it's very hip, has best of the cafes (Juciery Cafe - my fav) and other Greek, German, Italian, and local cuisine restaurants. The market is a trekkers paradise - Columbia, North Face have authorized showrooms in the market. On Sunday, we soaked and slept in the sun on the terrace, with the giant Himalayan Eagles circling over us in their calm flight, a few adrenaline-rushed paragliders in the distance (jumping from the Sarangkot tower), goats trotting and feasting on the leaves hung out by a local goatherder close to the hotel, and mountain dogs barking for attention of the passerby. We eventually became friends with the dogs and the goats. Extremely pleased with our week long stay, we decided to extend our trip by another, which was easily handled and accommodated by the hotel. At the end of our two-weeks sojourn, we left for Kathmandu by road with a heavy heart. Our flight got cancelled a day before because of bad weather, and Gaurav and Mr. Kiran Khadka (at the Front Desk) came to our immediate rescue and arranged everything for our return, including the cab to Kathmandu and an overnight stay at Maya Manor. I would have liked to keep this gem of a place safely guarded and lesser known, but I was drawn to write this review in fond reminiscence of my short (two weeks' long) stay at the Himalayan Front.…
My family & I stayed here with some family friends and we had a lovely time. The hotel is very peaceful, being a short drive down the hill to lakeside Pokhara but very near to the paragliding jump point. The views were absolutely stunning from all directions, even from your bathtub! The rooms had everything you could need and the beds were so lush - what a great night's sleep! The staff were friendly and very accommodating to our large group. The food was delicious and met all of our dietary requirements (a vegan, pescaterians, vegetarians and meat eaters). We couldn't ask for more, thank you to the KGH Group!
This property offers excellent hospitality, good food , luxury room and amenities, attractive pool and garden and hotel staff are very helpful and friendly. Moreover, we can enjoy the panoramic view of annapurna range in the North,
Hotel is located on the way to Sarangkot, it’s about 5-6 km from Phewa lake, however we didn’t regret that we have book Himalayan Front. So peaceful place with spectacular mountains view. We were lucky to see such a stunning snowy Himalayan picks from our room. All personnel are helpful and kind. If you want to get to lake side, airport the price approximately by taxi 1000 NR. We booked Mountain View with balcony and stayed on 5th floor. As well you can observe mountain eagles which are living around hotel area. Hotel has main restaurant which is offering great breakfast,ala carte options as well available, roof top bar with light snacks. Food and service was great. We have really enjoyed our time at Himalayan Front Hotel.
