Dwarika's Hotel

Kathmandu, Nepal

A heritage hotel that takes its inspiration from the Kathmandu Valley’s ancient culture, Dwarika’s is modeled upon the architectural grandeur of the palaces of the Newar kings. Guest rooms blend contemporary comforts with Newari motifs and artwork from another age, and the hotel’s three restaurants offer a range of options, from Nepali cuisine to continental and Japanese dishes, with fresh vegetables from Dwarika’s own farm. There is a peaceful inner courtyard, a library, a lovely pool, and a spa for rejuvenation. The hotel houses an extensive collection of Newari artifacts from the 14th century onwards.
