The Pavilions Himalayas Resort, Pokhara

Located southwest of Pokhara in a natural paradise, The Pavilions is a truly eco-sensitive luxury boutique resort.

Located southwest of Pokhara in a natural paradise, The Pavilions is a truly eco-sensitive luxury boutique resort. Situated on land still farmed by the resort’s Anglo-Nepali owners, The Pavilions is nestled beside a small river in a secluded rural valley with spectacular views of the Annapurna range and a working organic farm next door. A sensational design marries modern comforts with the natural surrounds. 

All villas feature a private terrace, a claw-footed bathtub, a large rain shower and an outdoor Nepali shower. Nepalese textiles and artworks, and a real fireplace, complete the luxe experience.

With equal priority for guests, the natural environment and the community, The Pavilions puts a focus on solar energy, biogas and homemade biodegradable toiletries. The adjacent farm is also run organically, with local employees, and a substantial portion of profits is donated to community projects. Guests are encouraged to take part in the day-to-day action on the farm, which provides the organic vegetables, eggs and dairy for breakfast and other meals.

Life in the resort revolves around the living and dining area known as Bhetghat (“meeting point”), mere footsteps from the infinity pool. You can join treks and wildlife drives with the naturalists, whose knowledge of animals and birdlife is exceptional. Then, soothe weary muscles in the state-of-the-art spa and yoga studio.
