Do you want to escape from hectic lifestyle, fast technology, city-life and work enjoying birds singing, swimming butterflies in our natural gardens with peaceful lake view of swinging in the hammock. This place is a tranquil and relaxing on the outskirts of Pokhara; enveloped in the natural Himalayan splendour and situated about 150m overlooking the Phewa lake. Come to enjoy our Hidden Paradise in the real Nepalese village to experience the real paradise. Only 30 mins walk from busy Lakeside.

The space

It is surrounded by nature overlooking Phewa Lake which is the second largest lake in Nepal, the main town of Pokhara, the World Heritage Stupa, temple in the lake more. It is a tranquil and relaxing getaway and the most popular room in our property.

It offers excellent views of the mountains, their reflections in the lake, World Heritage Stupa, Temple in the lake etc. Clean mountain air and a peaceful environment compliment the friendly, family run atmosphere of this hillside guest house, which makes this truly Hidden Paradise unique and unlike any place you have ever been to before.

Our favorite part of the place, where our guests spend most time is in our gardens viewing the lake. Our guests describe it if amazing breath-taking view. You also enjoy the deep fresh air breath in.

In our place there are some geckos, crickets, fireflies, butterflies, birds and sometime monkeys too! Remember we are living in nature :)This is also great for meditation, yoga & healing practices.

We often do milking freshly from buffalo from our relatives in the village and we cook organic seasonable vegetables.

Our spring water comes from the mountain behind our place carrying the goodness of Himalayan minerals. We use it after having purified for drinking and cooking. If you prefer, we have bottled water also.

We follow an environmentally friendly and sustainable way of living and we are actively supporting the local community; our hot showers are heated by solar energy, in our kitchen we only use produce and vegetables from the area, our employees come from the nearby villages and the support of the local youth club has been a priority for several years.

Truly beautiful place overlooking the lake. We both felt that we had the best room in the whole city. The hotel staff are really friendly and helpful, and the rooms clean and well decorated. The location is a little bit out of town (30 minute walk) which means it's quiet, relaxed and clean, exactly what we needed after trekking. Laxman and his family are really knowledgeable, keen to help you make the most out of your time, and full of good suggestions. If we are ever lucky enough to go back to Pokhara, we will definitely stay again.

Spent a wonderful Christmas in the round house. Warm friendly family vibes from hosts. Great space to relax after trekking. Bit of a walk there from town but if your in Nepal to trek then its good warm up! Tranquil escape from pokhara though.

I love love love my stay at Hidden Paradise. Laxman's house is so full of love and truly you will feel so welcomed and become part their family in no time. This place ticks all the boxes I was looking for and that is: Relaxation, amazing views, quietness and family feel. There are some long term guests in the house who are all so lovely, funny and nice. They make me laugh so much and I miss them. I stayed at the upper level Round House which I would strongly recommend others to stay there too because this is the energy house which means you will sleep like a baby...which I did! The room was a total comfort, has beautiful views and so spacious. Before choosing this place to stay however, you need to know if this is what you're looking for. Laxman's house is far away from the crowds and main town. It is very very quiet and secluded. There's no restaurants or shops close by. To even get to the main street, you have to walk around 5-10 mins and pass all the locals' houses and farms. For me, this is just perfect and is the reason why I chose this place to stay. The million dollar views from the top of the house just won me over. Also one important tip: DO NOT BRING BIG LUGGAGE. Seriously...you'd thank me later. Because to get to the house, you actually need to walk up the hills with rocky bits. Bring only necessary clothes and stuff in a backpack and leave the rest in your hotel in Kathmandu or somewhere. It'd make your travel much easier. Everyday I had amazing home-cooked meals of dhal bhat with the whole family. The food was simple yet so delicious. Laxman's sister-in-law is a great cook. Milan, Laxman's brother is always in the house ready to help you and cook for you. He's just great. I also did paragliding with Laxman and it was one of my best experiences. I also did a city tour with Milan's friend but unfortunately I didn't really enjoy it but that's ok...I still love Hidden Paradise and I will be back to Pokhara for sure one day. Also, make sure you check again and again with Laxman about the pickup from airport/bus station. And have his number handy and also the place's address...just in case. No one turned up at the airport for me when I arrived despite after confirming with Laxman. Thankfully a random taxi guy was so kind and called Laxman for me. For some reason Laxman's friend who was supposed to pick me up didn't turn up and didn't answer his phone either. So Laxman came himself with his motorbike. It's my first time being on motorbike and I really enjoyed the ride. Turned out it's actually a good thing that Laxman picked me up with his motorbike because we could go all the way up to the house and hence I didn't have to...
