Discover the history and culture of Nepal at one of Kathmandu’s finest properties, Dwarika’s Hotel. From Nepalese art adorning the walls to dark wood carvings and intricate staircases, this property takes inspiration from traditional Newari architecture to create a delightful retreat from the bustle of the city.
The hotel plays an important role in the architectural conservation of the area. Its construction incorporated artefacts from the 13th century onwards and care has been taken that any new additions to the building have been undertaken in the traditional style. Dwarika’s Hotel helps to keep the classical style alive by training artisans to work on restoration projects in the Kathmandu Valley.
Restored tall red-brick buildings house the 83 guestrooms which are decorated with red and black Nepalese materials and look out onto a central courtyard. Meanwhile, the outdoor pool and impressive spa offer further peaceful settings. You can then delve deeper into Nepal’s culture at Krishnarpan, one of the three on-site restaurants, to savour delicious regional dishes such as dal bhat.
