Boutique hotel group the Pavilions Hotels & Resorts has announced the opening of the Pavilions Himalayas Lake View - the first luxury tented eco villas of their kind in Nepal.
The property becomes the brand’s second property in the region, alongside Pavilions Himalayas.
Accessed via paddle boat across the majestic Phewa Lake, the eight new tented villas are oases of calm surrounded by cascading rice fields and the Annapurna Himalayas.
The unique open design of the villas provides unobscured views of the breath-taking landscape, allowing guests to connect with nature without sacrificing luxury and comfort.
Mountain botanicals and a natural spring pool form the basis of a uniquely Himalayan wellness experience, while Nepalese and international cuisine is crafted using produce cultivated at the Pavilions Himalayas’ very own organic farm.
Together the hotel and farm offer employment to the local Pokhara community, reflecting the brand’s dedication to true sustainability, encompassing community outreach and low impact operating practices.
Embodying the laidback charm of Pokhara, the eight tented villas capture the essence of a back-to-nature experience in a truly majestic setting, without forgoing the contemporary comforts and exceptional quality of service.
The landscape provides endless opportunities to explore, revitalise and connect with nature. Days can be spent trekking the mountains, meditating, kayaking on the lake or joining guided walks led by a local naturalist.
In between times, the clubhouse offers refreshments and local treats, while a team of therapists deliver rejuvenating wellness experiences combining foraged botanicals and traditional healing techniques.
“My partner Andrzej Adaszewski and I are very excited to launch the first villa tents of their kind in Nepal.
“As with the Pavilions Himalayas, our philosophy is all about giving back,” said Douglas Maclagan, philanthropist and founder of The Pavilions Himalayas.
“Guests will leave feeling uplifted after staying with us, and take something positive away through having left something valuable behind that helps to sustain our social projects.
“That is what The Pavilions is all about: the more you give, the more you get back!”
