Above average”
For a nature and mountain lover who equally enjoys sunrise and sunset this is an ideal place. The Hotel management should establish Intercom connection between the Reception and the guest rooms.

If you are looking for a place to relax, away from the hustle and bustle of town, THIS is definitely”
We opted to come to Raniban for our honeymoon as we were looking forward to see the sights of Annapurna without having the need to hike (the laziness is purely on my part) however, unfortunately for us, we could hardly see the scenery as the weather was not on our side (weather is VERY foggy in March). Nonetheless, we greatly enjoyed our stay here as it was very calming and serene. Further, the staff were very attentive especially Ganga who was very helpful all throughout our stay. He even assisted in making an itinerary for us as we had informed him we did not have a very long duration to explore Pokhara. We opted for the Mountain View Room With Garden and we can imagine how spectacular the view would have been if the weather was clear. Hot water was virtually non-existent, however this is because the hot water supply is dependant on solar power, so go figure. Makes for a great "wake-up call" to shower in the morning though =D Location-wise, its rather a distance from central Pokhara (about 20 minutes by taxi) and currently the road is a bit rough. Plus, there is a a short hike up to reach the resort. But considering how we wanted to find a place away from town, this was fine by us. The resort is about 15 minutes walk away from World Peace Pagoda and from there you can hike down to the Phewa Lake, take a boat across to visit the Berahi Temple (which is located in the middle of the lake) and then continue on to Pokhara town. There in a in-house catering with Nepali, Western, and Asian options. As all ingredients is organic and cooked fresh, do time your meal properly by placing your order an hour earlier. In short, the foggy weather kind of dampened the experience but the great hospitality at Raniban has definitely made me want to come to Nepal again. Great job Ganga and the team! Hope to (one day) see you again!

You have to climb up”
viewpoint of himalaya, quiet, clean
the way to the hotel is extremely hard. The road is full of stones and it is hard to drive up and also you have to climb 514steps to the hotel. Make sure you are strong enough to climb up with your luggages

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. and hopefully weather will be on your luck i.e. annapurna himalayan range poster-like view could be seen from Raniban. otherwise, it is still be a very nice 'retreat' ;)

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.

Excellent Lake & Annapurna Range View! ”
Breathtaking view, private, relaxing
Though running up the 500+ steps was kinda tough, but it was made up by the magnificent view of the lake and the Annapurna range! Hotel staffs were super friendly and having breakfast at the courtyard with the mount view was simply unbelievable! Getting up to the drop off point was easy too by taxi and the fare was reasonable.
