Being of Nepali origin, and a long time advocate for eco-tourism in Nepal and other countries, the Pavilions touched every chord.Nestled in the valley, surrounded by fields away from the "tourist containment" zone is welcome. However, if you want to go to into town - transport is provided. I loved every little touch which had been thought through - a mix of modern design, always thinking about the environment, but with details of Nepali heritage. The staff treat you as family, and will accommodate your dietary needs. Field to plate. Off-grid. Local employment. Clean air. And a fantastic run up to the Peace Pagoda amongst other places. Bravo. A must for business travellers who want to get away. Families who want a villa. A great way to start a trek, or end a trek and be pampered.

Under the care of Rajiv, Meena (sorry we didn’t get a chance to say goodbye!), and the rest of the dedicated and friendly hotel team, our stay at the Pavilions was absolutely superb, ranking in my top few hotel experiences to date. On arrival, we were greeted with welcome scarves and cocktails, and informed that we had been upgraded to one of the higher-end villas/chalets free of charge (thanks!). Like the communal areas of the hotel, the split-floor villa was stunning; built to an extremely high standard and decorated most tastefully. The villa was kitted out with everything you could need, including minibar, satellite TV, Bose iPod dock with a fully-loaded iPod, toiletries and soap made from local ingredients, and a wonderful jacuzzi bath I spent far too much time in.

Depending on perspective, the only possible downside of the hotel complex is that it is situated pretty far out of town along a very rough road, meaning one is limited to the hotel restaurant and bar of an evening unless you want to fork out 30-35 USD for a return trip to town. On the flip side, this means that the hotel is an oasis of tranquillity and enjoys magnificent views of the hills. The restaurant was good (great momos!) and we were cooked some very tasty meals cooked using ingredients grown on the farm that forms part of the hotel grounds.

It should be noted and praised that the majority of hotel profits are used to fund charity/community projects. It says a lot that one of our drivers referred to Douglas (the owner) as being like a ‘God,’ having built several hundred homes and a school for the local community. I disagree with a previous reviewer’s comments that it is uncomfortable seeing local people ‘toil’ away in the nearby fields and working discreetly in the hotel grounds; without the hotel and jobs/income it provides, the local community would be would undoubtedly be worse off. The ethos of this hotel is a noble and inspiring one, and it should serve as an aspirational model for community-focussed, sustainable, and eco-friendly tourism elsewhere. It was pretty quiet when we visited (perhaps due to being only a few months old) so I hope business picks up and the hotel gets to enjoy as much success it deserves.

Our family (2 parents, 2 children) stayed at this beautiful place for one night only (sadly as we would have loved to stay longer) at the end of a one week trek in the Annapurna region in March. There is no better place in Pokhara to unwind after a trek, even though it is not on the lake and can only be reached by a 15' drive along a very rocky road. Our suite (parents) and room (kids) were proper villas with beautiful furniture, TV with satelite connection, sumptuous bathroom, comfy beds etc. The restaurant served fresh tasty food - the menu was on the short side though. The vegetables, meat and cheese are produced at a small biofarm on the site. We also had a massage at the spa - top class. There is a swimming pool but the water was too cold for us. The hotel is part of a small chain that ploughs 70% of the profits into education/training programs for underprivileged children, many of whom go on to work in these hotels. We will certainly be back, hopefully for a longer stay, as soon as possible.

Room tip: Rooms are almost as beautiful as the suites so best to book rooms.

This is a superb hotel in a very tranquil setting - it feels like a real retreat. It is exceptionally well designed, to a very high standard, and the best part is it's very eco-friendly and much if not all of the produce for the meals is from their own organic farm. The individual villas are gorgeous and extremely spacious - a real treat having your own luxury apartment. Jacuzzi baths and separate shower cubicles - wonderful hand made soaps/shampoos with herbs from their garden. The nicest hotel I've ever stayed in. Can't recommend it highly enough.

I was so pleased with my stay at Pavilions. It’s a full-service luxury hotel nestled among small farms in a quiet rural valley adjacent to Pokhara. The staff are absolutely the best (shout-out to Meena!). And what makes this place truly unique is that it’s probably the most eco-friendly hotel in Asia. Meena was kind enough to give me a tour of the facilities. The hotel’s engineer accompanied us to explain the technical systems: solar photovoltaics, solar water heaters, rainwater harvesting, greywater and blackwater recycling systems, biogas generation, heat pumps, and lots more. Plus, most of the food served in the restaurant is grown/raised on-site or from a nearby producer. If you’re into luxury and sustainability, this is a place not to be missed.
