1. Why I chose this hotel:
Since I was not sure about any sudden changes for travel restrictions to Nepal, I booked the hotel last minute - 1 day before my departure to Nepal from U.A.E.
I contacted directly to the hotel via phone mentioning that I am going to celebrate my birthday at Sarangkot mountain lodge. I was considering other hotel aswell, however, the other hotel did not pick up my phone nor responded to my email. The Sarangkot Mountain Lodge staff answered all my questions that I was concerned regarding restrictions, hygiene, PCR protocols, food and beverage menus, transportation and so on. That call made me already a very good impression of the hotel. Also, they immediately answered to my email for further inquiry.
When we arrived to the hotel, I knew that I made a very good choice to stay with them. The hotel was located in the middle of mountain 35 min away from the airport. In the morning, sunrise with the the himalaya mountain view was already made this trip worth it. The little balcony from our room was good enough location to enjoy the view during sunrise and sunset. We did not go to Sarangkot View Point although it was super close to the hotel.
I loved the room and the interior. It was very cozy atmosphere. I honestly think that the actual place looking better than the pictures. Coffee/tea was available with some cookies and fresh fruits. Room was super clean and thoroughly taken care. Hot water for shower was available with bathtub
