Raniban Retreat is a secluded hotel perched on a wooded ridge top, 700m above Fewa Lake, and the city of Pokhara. This is the only hotel in Pokhara that offers luxury en-suite bamboo lodges and deluxe canvas tents, each pitched on a permanent platform with a private bathroom nestling under it's bamboo roof. Access to the gates is via the road to the World Peace Pagoda, or on foot by an hour's trek through Raniban, the Queens Forest. From the gates it is a short, but steep, walk up stone steps to a welcome drink on the panoramic terrace. What really sets Raniban apart is its seclusion and view. From your room terraces and gardens as well as from the restaurant you will have unlimited views across a 200km vista over Lake Fewa, across the Pokhara Valley, beyond the paragliders at Sarangkot to Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, Fishtail and Manaslu. Raniban delivers a level of service to match the view. The property grows its own herbs and vegetable and serve them in its restaurant. The unlimited hot water in your shower is heated by solar power, and the sun provides over half of hour electricity, which is available 24 hours a day.

Amazing stay at Raniban Retreat

Location and views, good food, and very warm and welcoming staff
9
We had an amazing experience at Raniban Retreat for 3 nights/4 days. The resort staff was very well mannered and helpful. The Himalayan range views were absolutely superb from the Mountain View Room (109) with Private Garden that is worth every penny. Facility wise it was a home away from home. Just a few suggestions: 1. Rooms are very nice and comfortable and their main selling point is their view but after dark there's nothing to do and having a television with a few cable channels would really help pass that time. If not then at least at the reception/restaurant area. 2. There must be an intercom/phone in the room to contact the hotel staff because we had to go each time to the reception area if we needed anything that becomes uncomfortable especially during the night time. 3. There should be additional menu/food items offered. 4. The facility should have good lights on all the footpath/walkways after dark.

Simply amazing. A must stay hotel in Pokhara.

Great view, super friendly staff, good food

This is a must-stay-for-one-night-at-least hotel in Pokhara. It would take you a bit of hiking up to the top of the hill but you'll know it is worth it when you reach there. Unbelievable view of the Himalayas! The best view comes at sunrise and sunset, there's no where else to get the amazing view other than Raniban. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I do need to thank them specially for helping me with a short video shooting for a project at work. If you can see this, you know who I'm thanking:)

Very disappointing

Only had one meal there but that was pretty good.
3.7
I'd read some great reviews of this place and had expected so much more. It is up, they say, 500 uneven stone steps - something they don't warn you about until your payment has gone through and the cancellation date has passed - not good for my busted knee. The pre-arranged pick up didn't happen and the staff are mostly absent if you need anything. My room was uncomfortable and rather broken (random patches of water on the bathroom floor, lock didn't work). Not at all worth the money.
