The Story behind the Shangri-La Village Resort: The story of how, the Shangri~La Village Resort in Pokhara came to be, began in the year 1952. Toni Hagen, took a photograph in Pokhara, facing north towards the Annapurna range. This Photograph went on to become somewhat representative to the 'outside world's of the beauty of Pokhara, a classic picture if you like.
In the year 1990 Shyam Bahadur Pandey, hotelier and patriarch of the Shangri~La Hotel in Kathmandu, recognizing an opportunity for creating a deluxe hotel in Pokhara. The site? The very spot (more or less), from which Hagen took this famous panorama of the Annapurna Mountains.
This view is in fact one of the key features defining not just the location of Shangri~La Village Resort in Pokhara, but the way it has been designed and built traditionally. This placement guarantees easy access to the tourist area around the lake, as well as automatically enhancing the architectural appeal of buildings.
So, what can be said about this resort that came to be, because of man’s vision, and another man’s photograph? This, that the Shangri~La Village Resort is a functional resort for the most. It is also comfortable, and fulfils a brief where it manages to incorporate village elements in its design. The overall effect is pleasing, especially, as noted before, the garden, which is really spectacular. The way the profile of the Shangri~La Village Resort is spread out and broken up into split levels is a unique feature, saving it from becoming a concrete block trying to call itself a village.
