Dusit International will introduce the Dusit brand to Nepal with a mountaintop resort near Dhulikhel, slated to open in 2020.
Dusit Thani Himalayan Resort & Spa will comprise 44 guestrooms and 20 villas, each providing views of the Himalayan range. It will feature a wellness spa concept created by Dusit’s signature Devarana Spa, an all-day-dining restaurant, a bar and lobby lounge, meeting facilities and a swimming pool.
The resort is located over an hour’s drive from Kathmandu and Tribhuvan International Airport, although the highway extension – scheduled for completion in 2020 – is expected to reduce travel time between the capital and the resort to under 45 minutes.
Namo Buddha, a small village which houses the ancient Thrangu Tashi Yangtse Monastery, one of the country’s main pilgrimage sites, is less than 10 minutes away by car. Dhulikhel, the administrative centre of Kavrepalanchok District, whose old town is home to many Hindu shrines and Buddhist stupa, is also nearby.
