Welcoming Warmer Days

Greetings from Hotel Annapurna View Sarangkot!

With the winter solstice passed, the days are getting longer, and temperature is gradually rising across the Pokhara valley, and we at Sarangkot are lucky to be experiencing wonderful mornings everyday. Pokhara’s wonderful climate has invited many paragliders to Sarangkot, who are soaring above the hills like colourful birds.

We are working towards the soft opening and our staffs have stepped up their game, and each department has been working meticulously for the big day. We believe that the front desk is the face of the hotel, and they are training themselves to give the best hospitality to the guests. In addition to the kind services in an easy-to-understand environment, we encourage our staff to always be friendly and approachable, and to address every situation with a smile.

We have also been posting a variety of panoramic pictures of the mountains that can be viewed from the resort. One of the primary attractions of the resort being the breathtaking mountain vistas, the guests will be eager to know more about the peaks. To address their curiosities, our staffs from all divisions are being trained to improve their skills as a guide.
