Pokhara certainly isn’t short of places to stay: it seems that every second building in the Lakeside area is a hotel of some sort. But for a stylish, comfortable and memorable night’s sleep, check out one of these lovely boutique hotels.

The lakeside Hotel Barahi was established as a humble family-run guesthouse in 1978. It’s reasonably priced and has a large garden, a spa, a bakery and a big pool that’s always welcome in the Pokhara heat. The WiFi is also free, which can’t always be taken for granted at hotels in the city. Rooms come with lawn, lake or Himalayan views. If you love this place and are travelling further around Nepal, check out the Barahi Jungle Lodge in Chitwan.

This is a brand new hotel in a quieter end of the area, towards Damside, just opposite a small lakeside temple and a classic Pokhara photo vantage point with colourful boats in the water. It utilises natural stone extensively, both inside and out, making it one of Pokhara’s most modern and stylish hotels. It’s bright and airy inside, with exposed bricks and unpainted woodwork in neutral colours and stylish aquatic-themed feature walls in the 45 rooms. There are three restaurants/bars on site and a spa if you’re looking to relax.

Although it looks fairly generic from the outside, Hotel Karuna is a brand new establishment (it opened in 2017) with bright and colourful modern rooms. They even have family rooms with bunk beds and toys for the kids. There’s a cafe downstairs that sells organic local coffee and a rooftop garden with those stunning Mount Fishtail views that you’d expect from the more expensive accommodation options in Pokhara. Hotel Karuna, on the other hand, offers a boutique design at very affordable prices.

While we think the rooms here could be better (especially considering the high price tag), the views from Rupakot Resort are the sort that the phrase ‘million dollar views’ was coined for. Located on a hill above Rupa and Begnas Lakes, 22 kilometres east of Pokhara, Rupakort Resort is a great place to head on a day trip outside of the city. You can order a coffee or lunch and admire the wall of the mighty Himalayan mountains right in front of you from the relaxed dining terrace. These are probably the best views of the Annapurnas that you’ll find, short of trekking within them.
