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!

Hey, 1-night trip
Verified Expedia guest review

8/10 Very good

I think this hotel would be good for a family or maybe a couple looking for a romantic getaway. For a solo traveler, new to the area, it wasn't so convenient to go to town, as you have to ride the adorable raft/ferry over and then get dropped at the parking lot across the way...where all the tourist busses are parked and a few taxis. The bed was comfy and the a/c worked, which was great, since it was extremely hot and humid the few days I was there. The hotel has a genenrator, so if the power went, it was back on within a minute or two. The staff was sweet, though the man who helped me with my luggage on the way out, decided to comment on my weight, ASK my weight, after he asked me about my stay and I told him I went paragliding. He was shocked that they took me since he thought I was too heavy. Ummmmm wow! It, unfortunately, kind of soured the experience. I'm going to chalk it up to a cultural thing, but still think it was wildly inappropriate. Nwxt time I come to Pokhara, I will stay at a hotel closer in.

Charming quaintness
I stayed at FTL on a friend's suggestion. The arrival by boat sets the mood for a relaxed stay. Staff are attentive and there is a tranquil feel about the place. The on-site dining is standard for such a place (& quite adequate) but there are cheaper and more interesting options if you catch the boat back over and wander down the street. Watch your in-room internet use - better to use the free connection in the eating area.
