Dwarika’s Hotel


Immersed in the rich architectural and cultural heritage of Nepal’s Newari Period, in the heart of Kathmandu.

Dwarika’s is a sanctuary of calm in the heart of Kathmandu, a short drive away from Durbar Square.

It’s an idyllic oasis, far removed from the hustle and bustle of Nepal’s busy capital.

This hotel has 80 beautifully designed rooms and suites. Each room is an eclectic blend of antique woodwork, traditional terracotta flooring, and handwoven textiles, reflecting the motifs and aesthetics of Nepali royalty. Magnificently restored Newari architecture, original Nepali antiques and objets d’art, and mouthwatering home-grown cuisine make it one of our favourites in Kathmandu.

The cuisine is varied and full of flavour. The kitchen sources ingredients from Dwarika’s own organic farms in the Nepali countryside.

From traditional Nepali cuisine to sushi, the food and drink at Dwarika’s is excellent. The Pancha Kosha Spa offers an array of treatments that draw on Buddhist, Ayurvedic and holistic healing traditions from Nepal that soothe your senses. Unwind at the spa or outdoors by the gorgeous swimming pool, inspired by the traditional baths of the Malla royals.

  • The location is superb, putting you within a short drive of Kathmandu’s main sights of interest.
  • The cuisine is exquisite, cooked with organic ingredients that are grown on Dwarika’s farms in the countryside.
