The Pavilions Himalayas Lake View has debuted as the first eco-villa luxury tented concept of its kind in Nepal. The second Himalayan property from the Pavilions Hotels and Resorts brand, the retreat is accessible via paddle boat across the idyllic Phew Lake.
Embodying the laidback spirit of Pokhara, the resort comprises eight tented villas that embrace their natural surroundings. The unique, open design of each villa frames landscape views to foster an unbroken bond with nature without sacrificing luxury or comfort. Crafted with natural, locally sourced materials, accommodations include four 432-square-foot Classic Lake villas, three 538-square-foot Grand Lake villas, and the 882-square-foot Royal Lake villa. Floor-to-ceiling windows, fully retractable, wraparound glass doors, handcrafted furniture, and outdoor rain showers ensure an immersive experience. Mountain botanicals accent the site along with a natural spring pool, while a clubhouse hosts wellness amenities and meals sourced from the property’s organic community garden.
