Hotel Information

Situated among pristine forests of pine, rhododendron and apple trees, The Dwarika's Resort Dhulikhel is a scenic journey of 45 minutes from Kathmandu and half hour from Dhulikhel city. Naturally confined at an altitude of 1700 meters, the resort endows you with the freedom of a 180-degree view of the mighty Himalayas, the Kavrepalanchok valley below and the most amazing sunrises and sunsets. The resort spread over 20 acres of gentle slopes has its own forest, cascade pools and a host of species of birds, butterflies and even deer.

The resort is a paradise for bird watching. A large variety of birds and butterflies can be found around the resort complex. The views of sunrise and sunset from Himalayan Shangri-La is the most superb in Dhulikhel. Here, you can do as much or as little as you wish.

With a wide-angle view of the Himalayas right in front plus that of the Kavrepalanchowk Valley below, Dwarika's Resort Dhulikhel lies at an altitude of 1,700 m. It also happens to be the best point for viewing beautiful sunrises and sunsets in the locality.

This eco-friendly resort can be compared to a private nature park with cascades, pools and a host of wildlife including birds, butterflies, dears, etc. The design and layout aspects are equally outstanding and priority is given to free space.

That is to say, with 36 rooms in 9 villas in its 20 acres of woodland, the resort provides probably the largest private space instead of encaging you and your desires. You may literally spread your wings and fly - there will be no barriers in your way.

The architecture of the buildings is a cent per cent depiction of that Newars and Gurungs, two culturally rich ethnic groups of Nepal. Sculptures done by local craftsmen in wood, metal and stone have been lavishly used in the buildings as well as the gardens and pathways.

A day long hiking or bicycle trip to Buddhist shrine 'Namobuddha' and ancient town of Panauti is quite popular. If you are more adventurous you can venture for rafting, fishing or swimming on Sunkoshi river 25 km down the valley.Designed and built to depict ethnic "Newari" and "Gurung" building styles of Nepal, the rooms do not come with a television, but who would really need one when rooms with the best views display huge panaromic glass windows in front of your king sized beds? It is like having your own 150 inch plasma television, and it's constantly playing the nature show, live, right in your room.

The Village Resort accommodation has been designed and built to depict various ethnic building styles of Nepal, currently has thirty six rooms with all modern amenities of which sixteen rooms are housed in four traditional Newari architectural style units with four rooms each per unit and five units built in traditional Gurung architectural style with four units of four rooms each and two single storey units with two rooms each and a central block of two storeys comprising of the bar & lounge, the restaurant and the conference room. Pathways wind up between bushes and trees that lead to the various types of accommodations. The rooms are unclutered and stylish with traditional soft furnishings and decorative items, wooden flooring with throw rugs on the floors and each room has its own garden space with hammocks and lounge chairs. The bathrooms are also uncluttered and offer no bathtubs, replacing it with an outdoor feeling shower stall and with the large windows offer fantastic views. Each room has tea/coffee making facilities with a choice of normal and herbal teas and coffee. The identification, in the basic design of the rooms is that the living space ones needs when working is different to that we need when we wish to relax. Hence the main stress on ones own outside space. The guest accommodation is a combination of excellent locations, panoramic mountain views blended with essential modern comforts.
