Nepal’s first luxury tented eco villas have opened in Pokhara, offering stunning views of surrounding cascading rice fields and the Annapurna Himalayas. Accessed by paddleboat across Phewa lake, the new tented villas provide guests with a back-to-nature experience, yet the contemporary comforts and high-end service from which Pavilions Hotels are renowned are ever-present and the villas have been carefully crafted in local materials with handmade furniture. From the villas, guests can take in the landscape and enjoy a unique selection of Himalayan wellness experiences complete with mountain botanicals and a natural spring pool. For something a little more active, there are trekking expeditions, kayaking on the lake as well as nature walks.
Dedicated to supporting local and to sustainability The Pavilions Himalayas employs staff from the local Pokhara community, runs an organic community farm that provides for the property’s farm-to-table dining, and is dedicated to investing 50 per cent of net profits into opportunities for the disadvantaged in and around the area.
Equally suited to those looking for a relaxing, meditative escape amidst the beauty of the Himalayas as it is to those keen to trek and kayak and enjoy the great outdoors. Combine the two and indulge in the best of both worlds.
The Pavilions Himalayas Lake View is boutique hotel group The Pavilions Hotels & Resorts’ second property in Nepal, following award-winning The Pavilions Himalayas - a beautiful five-hour trek lies between the two properties.
