Dwarika’s Hotel

Dwarika’s Hotel is a fine example of Nepali architecture with intricate wood and terracotta work produced by the finest craftsmen in the country. Appreciation of each handmade brick, and every piece of original wood is what makes this hotel so special and unique. If you are an avid foodie the restaurants here will not disappoint, most of the ingredients are produced in the hotel’s organic farm. Dine in style and enjoy meals reminiscent of ritual feasts up to 22 courses. We recommend a visit to the library at the hotel, full of interesting books on the history of Nepal and a splendid place to sit back and relax after an exhilarating day taking in vibrant Kathmandu.

 

Dwarika’s Resort

Located an hour’s drive from Kathmandu city, the resort is spread across a lush hillside amongst pine, rhododendron and cherry blossom trees. Each space and suite at the resort is unique, and has been created from local materials to showcase and celebrate mother nature in all her forms. The simple, spacious and rustic style complements the tranquil surroundings. Each suite boasts extraordinary Himalayan views and private indoor and outdoor living and sleeping spaces which take you closer to nature and create an ideal setting for reflection, relaxation and renewal.

Set in different locales around the property are three restaurants serving delightful meals, with wonderful terraces on which to enjoy a sundowner. With most ingredients sourced from Dwarika’s own farms (one of which is situated nearby) and a focus on quality, fresh produce, dining is one of the highlights of the resort. One of the main elements of the resort is the Pancha Kosha Himalayan Spa, where treatments are derived from a blend of Ayurveda, Buddhist Medicine and local knowledge. The unique herbs used for the treatments are grown within the Spa’s grounds, or sourced from across the Himalayan region. With its relaxed atmosphere and awe-inspiring views, this is a wonderful place to end a trip to Nepal.

Meghauli Serai – A Taj Safari Lodge

Situated on the banks of the River Rapti in the renowned Chitwan National Park, Meghauli Serai is a luxury haven in the wilderness. Contemporary Meghauli rooms come with a balcony while the more spacious Rapti Villas boast private plunge pools, both offer great views of the river and the National Park. Explore the national park on jeep safaris, walking trails or canoe trips.

Dining is always a great occasion with organic farm fresh ingredients, local style barbeques, in room dining and also private outdoor dining experiences. When not out on safari, relax by the beautiful infinity swimming pool with its river view decks, or spend time in the private machan over the river, and sit back and wait as the wildlife comes to you.

 

The Pavilions Himalayas Resort

Located southwest of Pokhara in a natural paradise, The Pavilions is a truly eco-sensitive luxury boutique resort. Situated on land still farmed by the resort’s Anglo-Nepali owners, The Pavilions is nestled beside a small river in a secluded rural valley with spectacular views of the Annapurna range and a working organic farm next door. A sensational design marries modern comforts with the natural surrounds.

All 14 villas feature a private terrace, a claw-footed bathtub, a large rain shower and an outdoor Nepali shower. Nepalese textiles and artworks, and a real fireplace, complete the luxe experience.

With equal priority for guests, the natural environment and the community, The Pavilions puts a focus on solar energy, biogas and homemade biodegradable toiletries. The adjacent farm is also run organically, with local employees, and a substantial portion of profits is donated to community projects. Guests are encouraged to take part in the day-to-day action on the farm, which provides the organic vegetables, eggs and dairy for breakfast and other meals.

Life in the resort revolves around the living and dining area known as Bhetghat (“meeting point”), mere footsteps from the infinity pool. You can join treks and wildlife drives with the naturalists, whose knowledge of animals and birdlife is exceptional. Then, soothe weary muscles in the state-of-the-art spa and yoga studio.
