Less than an hour out of Kathmandu, Dwarika's Resort Dhulikhel is a Himalayan haven and holistic lifestyle retreat for those seeking rejuvenation. With exquisite organic cuisine, impeccable service, panoramic views across the Langtang valley and the Himalayan range, and full spa and yoga facilities, the way of life here is a wonder for the senses.
Dwarika’s Resort is spread over a lush hillside, allowing the private indoor and outdoor living and sleeping spaces to bring guests closer to nature. 39 impressive suites—each named after one of Nepal’s most endangered ethnic groups—are tastefully constructed using natural materials and colors such as stone, wood, earth, and lime. Guests will marvel at the spacious en-suite bathrooms and stone tubs, as well as the private gardens or roof terraces that deliver incredible sunrise views and outdoor beds to sleep under the stars.
One of the main draws of the resort is the Pancha Kosha Himalayan Spa, where a number of holistic activities are available. The onsite Ayurvedic doctor, naturopathy expert, Hindu priest, and masters of meditation, yoga, and astrology are all on hand to promote an atmosphere of renewal and growth. Additional facilities for wellbeing include a meditation maze, chakra sound chambers, Navagraha Vana gardens, Himalayan salt room, and stunning spa suites set in the lush woodland. From pottery, meditation, yoga, and block printing to cooking classes, reading, hiking, and nature walks, every activity is intended to restore harmony to the mind, body, and earth.
Meals at Dwarika’s Resort are thoughtfully prepared with fresh, seasonal, local produce primarily sourced from the property’s organic farms and local farmers. Guests may experience a range of memorable tastes, including Himalayan, Japanese, and Zen Buddhist cuisine. Finally, the resort has gone above and beyond to incorporate environmentally friendly practices, including water re-harvesting, grey water treatment, solar lighting, and food recycling. Their hope is to soon embody a fully zero-waste organic lifestyle, thereby showing respect and appreciation for the cultural and natural heritage of Nepal.Request Information
