The rooms are housed in two-storey cottages overlooking an inner courtyard with private verandas - perfect for sitting outside in the morning with a Nepali 'chia' in hand. Blending modern comfort with a twist of Himalayan design, the rooms are a welcome relief after a trek in the Annapurna Range. There are also two larger Apartments and also a Suite. Rooms come with TVs, air- condiitioning and modern bathrooms. Don't expect mountain views from your room though, although some rooms on the north side have partial views.
In the central courtyard, there is a lovely pool and pool bar with a laid back atmosphere. There is also a good quality spa using Himalayan techniques that again will ensure your weary legs are refreshed and reinvigorated.
There are two restaurants; the Bay Leaf serves international cuisine and the Tree House above. The Bay Leaf serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The breakfasts are wonderful - lots of fresh fruit and eggs cooked to order with fresh bread and pastries. The Temple Tree Resort & Spa also has the Island Bar which serves drinks and a selection of tapas dishes. Temple Tree also provides WiFi, but don't expect great internet speeds anywhere in Nepal.
Temple Tree Resort & Spa is located about a 10-minute walk from the main Lakeside area which has numerous restaurants and bars which we recommending exploring if you base yourselve here.
Temple Tree is probably the best choice in Pokhara (compared with Fishtail and the Shangri-la), but the town isn't known for the quality of its hotels. It doesn't pretend to be all bells and whistles, but for a couple of nights to explore Pokhara and rest after a trek, it is a superb choice.
