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.

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.

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.

Spectacular, amazing views, awesome food

View of Annapurna range mountains, food, tranquility
10
It was an adventurous journey to the top of Raniban Retreat paired with the amazing nature sights and complete relaxation. It is such a unique idea to choose that location to set up a hotel that I would list it as the second best thing in Pokhara after the views of Annapurna. Really good hospitality and the food is too good. I will visit Nepal again only to spend another couple of nights in my favourite spot in Nepal. So impressed!
