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.

it was our second time in Raniban, since two years ago. yep, the price-range has increased (from only USD50nett to USD115nett, for a Deluxe Room aka Mountain View Room now). however, indeed a lot of improvements are there i.e. rooms are better decorated and facilities being added, wifi are available for free and faster, customer services are warm as always. kudos. and definitely do not mind to visit again :)

A Heaven on Earth Hotel with the fairy tale view

View, view and view

My stay in Raniban Retreat was so great. I knew about the 500 steps that must be taken to reach the hotel from the car stop and it's true, no alternative. I was actually stairs hater, but I can handle it. No regret at all because the view during stepping the 500 steps always nice and nicer. And when you are in the hotel, especially in the sunrise time, the view was super amazing (in early November). I can see Mt. Machhapuchhare ( Fish Tail) and the Annapurna Himalaya range, the clouds over the Phewa Lake and the World Peace Pagoda at the peak of a hill. You can call it Heaven on Earth or A Fairy-tale land. Do not expect more than the beauty of silence, no TV, no entertainment but 3G internet is provided free. And taking a long shower with hot water was so great. That's the reason I extended staying in this hotel. And Ganga, the manager and all the staffs, serve the guests with high standard of hospitality.
