The Begnas Lake Resort & Villas, Pokhara

Pokhara is well-known for its adventurous pursuits, with three of the world’s ten highest mountains all within 30 miles. However, Pokhara is home to more than just snow-capped Himalayan peaks – but tranquil lakeside oases. Begnas Lake Resort & Villas lies at the foothills of these great peaks, overlooking the quiet, forested banks of Begnas Lake and brings a sense of calm to an otherwise adrenalin-fuelled destination. Allow the beauty of the lake to envelop you on a traditional Shikara boat trip, or simply by looking out of the picture perfect windows of one of the 42 guestrooms.


Just 12km from the action of Pokhara, Begnas Lake Resort is a refreshing change of pace. Best accessed by a 25 minute Shikara boat ride from Begnas Bazaar Boat Station, take in the beauty of your surroundings before arriving at the resort. Whether you choose to embark on an ayurvedic journey, cast a line over the lake or lace up your hiking boots, Begnas Lake Resort offers something for everyone.

Your Room

The 42 rooms of Begnas Lake Resort & Villas are built on old paddy terraces in ethnic Gurung style stone houses. Close to the water’s edge, each of the rooms offers breathtaking views of the countryside and Himalayan peaks. With local materials used throughout and french windows opening up onto terraces or balconies bringing the luscious surroundings that bit closer, Begnas Lake Resort truly feels at one with nature. Breathing in the fresh mountain air, you will too.

Why we like it

You can’t help but feel an enormous sense of peace and well being at Begnas Lake Resort. Surrounded by lush forest and awe-inspiring nature, this nourishing environment lends itself perfectly to the Himalayan Nature Spa. Perfectly blending traditional ayurvedic principles with medicinal Himalayan herbs, the spa offers a unique range of ayurvedic therapies. For those looking for a healthy break, the spa menu goes hand in hand with the menu at Jimrie Restuarant. which features a range of ayurvedic dishes and herbal drinks to complement treatments. Then, for a true sense of peace, join one of the resident yogacharyas for a private yoga or meditation session in the garden pavilion. Bliss.
