Dear Guest, Namaste from Raniban. We thank you for taking the time out for this wonderful review. On a personal front, even after spending a minimum of 10 days each month at Raniban, I find the view equally surreal every single time! Maybe it's the...More

About
Description
Raniban Retreat is perched on a secluded ridge top 700m above The Phewa lake, and the town of Pokhara.Reach us by rowing boat and trekking on a well made trail, or by road in 15 minutes from Lakeside, ...More and you will be a world away from the grime and noise of Lakeside tourist hotels. The World Peace Pagoda is our only neighbour. The stunning view is what really makes us special. From our rooms and terraces we enjoy heart stopping views to the mighty Annapurna range, Phewa Lake, and the Peace Stupa. All our rooms are cosy when it's colder, cool when it's hot and look out onto the stunning view to the north. Our excellent restaurant menu features seasonal specials, and many dishes feature herbs and vegetables grown in our own organic gardens. Less
