The Dwarika's Hotel is an award-winning heritage hotel that takes its inspiration from the Kathmandu Valley's rich history and cultural traditions. Modeled on the architectural grandeur of the palaces of the Newar kings, the hotel houses an extensive collection of artifacts dating to the 14th century, with intricate carved wood and terracotta work by the finest craftsmen in Nepal. Its 87 rooms and suites are meticulously designed to offer an experience that is both aesthetic and comfortable. Rooms combine traditional Newari decorative motifs and antiques with the contemporary amenities of a luxury hotel. Dark hardwood beams and tile floors provide the setting for beds featuring handwoven organic linens, and custom handmade furniture that showcases exquisite woodcarving. The hotel's three restaurants and bar serve continental and multicultural cuisine, prepared with fresh-picked vegetables from The Dwarika's own farm. For relaxation, enjoy the cozy library, swim in a pool reminiscent of 12th-century Malla dynasty baths, take a free yoga class, or indulge at the Pancha Kosha Spa, where you'll find a range of massages that draw on ancient Himalayan treatments.
