2/10 Poor

we stayed one night there with friends, and weather was but we decided to hit the pool after a long day spent at the airport (KTM delays). then went to use the sauna which is a small room next to the pool in the corner, staff opened the door and prepared it for us, but ONLY AFTER we used it for like 15 mins, he started to write us a bill, I think it was 3000 for steam & sauna per person! but there was no price or any indication that service is charged extra for guests. what a shame. they really should be upfront and honest about it.

10/10 Exceptional

overall the location is amazing but the small sauna & steam room next to the pool is CHARGED for guests to use, however theres no sign or price list on the door or the sauna indicating that, we used it for like 20 mins, and were charged 3000NPR per person. nobody informed us its not free for guests to use, that was a very disappointing incident, its not about the money rather than we would like to be informed that its additionally fee involved, for the sauna and steam room is very very dated anyways. dont know why they do that.

Great stay!
Amazing place and location.. Unique aspect is the location in the middle of the lake which requires the raft for access (available 24X7).. great food spread, delicious yet slightly expensive.. dining overlooking the lake is a great experience.. Had a hookah and drinks at the pool which was great too.. Will definitely revisit once Pokhara has a new International Airport..

A most magnificent resort
Fish tail is in a gorgeous location. On clear days can see all the Annapurna range. Rooms are charming. Food delicious. Massage fantastic. We were able to hire a retired employee as a bird guide for a day and had a wonderful time seeing the only endemic in Nepal. Would be a great honeymoon spot. Oh, yes, the President if Bangladesh and his entourage came for lunch one day!

Luxuriate in Shangri-La
I had a great respite stay at Fishtail. I had been in modest Airbnb's and wanted to pamper myself for a couple of days. So I went to Fishtail. As soon as you cross the lake on the raft and walk up the garden path to reception, you leave your cares behind. There is a great, well-card for pool, a wonderful spa and best of all wonderful gardens. The rooms have international channels to enjoy and you have your own terrace with chairs and beautiful landscaping. The food was average but the waitstaff were excellent at the restaurant and actually throughout the facility. It was a great stay!
