Dwarika’s Resort Dhulikhel

, Nepal

Dwarika’s Hotel and Resort is a magnificent 5* star property situated close to the stunning Boudhanath stupa and the sacred Pashupatinath temple complex. The property is a treasure trove of woodwork and artefacts that were rescued from temple and house restorations by the hotel’s founder, Dwarika Das Shrestha.

Dwarika’s 86 lavish rooms and suites are furnished in Newari style and the hotel pool and grounds are a peaceful oasis and an ideal place to unwind.

Dwarika’s Resort Dhulikhel is a splendid extension of Dwarika’s Hotel, featuring one of the largest private collections of woodwork in the world. The resort is a tribute to Nepal’s architectural heritage, with terracotta façade made by a local potter using clay from the valley, wooden panels restored in the resort’s own workshop, furniture made by traditional carpenters and hand-woven textiles with Nepali motifs.

Dwarika’s Resort Dhulikhel is undoubtedly one of the finest hotels in Kathmandu, offering a luxurious and authentic experience.

Dwarika’s Resort Dhulikhel has four types of rooms and suites, all of which are adorned and furnished with local and handmade materials to create a natural and authentic atmosphere. The rooms and suites have wooden beams, tiled floors and large bathrooms.

Heritage Junior Suites have a divan for relaxing, while Heritage Executive Suites are more luxurious, with open bathrooms, a personal computer and a lot of living space.

The Royal Suite is the most impressive, as it is inspired by the homes of the Malla kings. It covers 250 square metres over three floors. It has an open-air terrace for breakfast with views of the courtyard and the Himalayas, and a wooden deck that overlooks the living area.


If you are looking for a variety of dining options, the hotel offers three restaurants and a bar to suit your preferences. The main restaurant, Krishnarpan, is inspired by the traditional feasts of the local people in the valley, and serves elaborate meals with 6 to 22 courses. You can enjoy a slow dining experience that showcases the rich culture and cuisine of Nepal. Another option is Mako’s, a Japanese restaurant that has a simple and elegant decor, reflecting the zen philosophy. You can savour authentic Japanese dishes prepared with fresh ingredients and delicate flavours. For a more casual dining experience, you can visit Toran, the multi-cuisine restaurant that is open throughout the day. You can choose from a variety of dishes and eat in the courtyard.

The Fusion bar is located by the pool, and offers a lively atmosphere on Friday nights with live music and barbecue.
